Customer Reviews

Overall:
It was fantastic and everything I hoped it would be. The villa is beautiful and looks exactly as the pictures show it. The setting is spectacular and looking out on the Tuscan countryside. It was amazing. The home is elegant but comfortable and we were a family of 5 plus a toddler. Renata and Allessandro are gracious hosts and made us feel welcome.
Enjoyed Most:
The setting of the property and the comfortableness it gave us while still being elegant was wonderful. All of the amenities and the villa, both inside and out were great. Renata and Allessandro made us feel at home and were so gracious with our family and granddaughter. We met their son and dog Otto, whom our granddaughter fell in love with. I wanted to live like an Italian family and we did, thanks very much in part to our hosts and their home.
Enjoyed Least:
Not sure there was anything I did not like about the property. Walking into Montagnana is a bit of a challenge and one we did not undertake due to having a toddler with us.
Surrounding Area:
The simple beauty of the landscape was breathtaking. We found getting to surrounding towns to be easy, even with the winding roads of the Tuscan countryside. I felt like I stepped into the movie "Under The Tuscan Sun".
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montagnana was the nearest small town. It is quaint and had necessities. We did not try to walk it.
Tips or Restaurants:
Having our hosts stock the kitchen was wonderful as we had all our evening meals and breakfast in. It worked out perfectly the night of our arrival for us to make a pot of pasta and sauce and then have food for breakfast. We went to Montespertoli the next day to the grocery store and bought what else we needed.
Directions:
I would definitely have a GPS, in English. Between the directions provided by RentVillas, our GPS and our childrens' maps on their phone we only made one wrong turn the entire week we were there. We explored Lucca, Siena, Greve, San Gimignano, Volterra and Florence. All were doable day trips from the Villa.
Check In Out:
The process of checking in and out was very smooth and they acommodated our schedule for our departure. I would definitely stay there again.
