About The Experience
Breathe in the fresh country air of your own luxury Tuscan villa for rent, an ancient farmhouse restored in traditional style and an idyllic retreat for your family, friends or large groups. Barbecue on the large open terrace or explore the private, enclosed gardens of mature olive trees and flowers, featuring a grand expanse of lawn and a large heated swimming pool with its own sun terrace. This lovely vacation villa in Tuscany offers privacy, yet its location is close to local shopping, world-renowned sights and wonderful attractions.
Location Description

This Tuscan rental villa is located about 5 km away from the quaint hilltop village of Palaia, where there are two restaurants. Forcoli, slightly further, is a more modern village with a supermarket and other conveniences. Take a drive into the diverse city of Pisa, renowned for its main attraction: the Leaning Tower. The Pisa Baptistry, cathedral and leaning tower are all located together to enjoy. Pisa is well known for its castles, churches and monasteries, all scattered on the tops of hills along the rivers and taking a stroll along its ancient streets is sure to reward you with delightful adventures. This villa is also well-located for taking day-trips to other famed Tuscan locales, including San Gimignano, Florence, and Siena.

Exterior Description
(1360 m2) Set within the private estate of an historic Tuscan borgo, this farmhouse has been lovingly restored and transformed into luxurious accommodations for up to fifteen guests. An open terrace for outdoor dining runs the length of the house in the back, where you will find a barbecue and outdoor furniture for your use. The terrace overlooks a private, enclosed garden with a large lawn area interspersed with mature olive trees and flower beds. There is also a heated private swimming pool (12m x 6m) with its own sun terrace. Pool towels and sun lounges are provided. The property is also secured by an electronic gate. The estate itself also includes an ancient villa with a 13th century clock tower, a family chapel, an olive press, an old water mill, and a number of farmhouses, of which this is one. It is possible to tour the rest of the estate upon request; many of the older buildings have yet to undergo restoration and the farm is active, so guests must be accompanied by a member of the staff.

Customer Reviews

Overall:
The property was better than we expected!! The house and the grounds were beautiful! All three families enjoyed spending time together in the shared areas and there was plenty of room for each family to have some privacy. The kitchen was outstanding! Jenni, the house manager, was very attentive and helpful. We had a wonderful experience!
Enjoyed Most:
The grounds, backyard.
Tips or Restaurants:
We went to many vineyards in the area, and although they were all great, our group liked the estate's own wine the BEST by far!! Order wine through the house manager so you have it during your stay.
Directions:
I wouldn't change a thing on the directions. They were detailed enough that we didn't need a GPS to get there.

Overall:
My family and I found the villa to be perfect for an extended family visit. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The pool area and patio were the scenes of family dinners and relaxing afternoons
Enjoyed Most:
We loved the opportunity to live in the countryside yet to have the typical amenities such as air conditioning and modern bathrooms Americans take for granted.
Enjoyed Least:
There was very little to dislike. One suggestion would be to improve the roadway entrance to the villa which is highly rutted and hard on autos.
Surrounding Area:
The natural scenery was profundly beautiful, the small towns quite attractive, and the villa was within reasonable driving distance of major tourist sites.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The smallest town was Palaia, followed by Forcoli. In the heat of the summer neither was within walking distance; it would be quite a hike to either regardless of the weather.
Tips or Restaurants:
I would suggest relying heavily upon the material forwarded via Rentvillas as all advice was quite helpful. I especially valued the pre-stocking of the kitchen as we arrived on Saturday after a lengthy transatlantic flight.
Directions:
We used GPS but the signage for the property entrance is very easy to miss. We spent a good 30 minutes driving up and down the same road before discovering the small sign for the villa.
Check In Out:
My family and I had an exceptional experience with Rentvillas and with Villa Stemma. I would not hesitate to do this again.

Overall:
It was all that we could have hoped for and more. The layout of bedrooms and bathrooms, the spacious living areas, the outdoor terrace and pool all combined to make this a memorable vacation for our family of twelve adults and children.
Enjoyed Most:
The villa was set up for really easy living. We did quite a bit of cooking and, after getting used to the stove, we turned out some gourmet feasts which we then enjoyed out on the terrace. We found ourselves lingering for an hour or more after dinner was over because we did not want to leave the peace and quiet of a Tuscan evening. Also, and this was very important to our group the beds are very, very comfy.
Enjoyed Least:
It would have been nice to be able to walk to a village. The roads are not conducive to strolling and the nearest village was too far for us to reach on foot.
Surrounding Area:
The postcard views! The charming villages in the hills.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Palaia was the closest tonw.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring non metric measuring cups and spoons. Rentvillas provides a good list of things most people will need. We really enjoyed a wonderful meal at I Secoli in Coleoli. We celebrated a birthday and we were treated wonderfully.
