Customer Reviews

Overall:
It was magical. When you arrive and open the gate, you are surrounded by roses, hydrangeas, geraniums (with colors I'd never seen) and olive trees. The Villa is furnished with gorgeous antiques, and remained cool even when the temperature hit high 90's. Sitting out at the pool, and looking at the landscape was like being in a movie.
Enjoyed Most:
The whole set up, from the terrace for outside eating, to the pool that overlooks the incredible landscape, to a kitchen that was a joy to cook in, to the inside that was a great place to relax in the evening. And, there is Alessandro. He's a charming host, and a wonderful cook. Our meal with him was a true highlight of the week. And, the WiFi was terrific, which was important to us.
Enjoyed Least:
The mattresses are VERY firm and the pillows are not American style (not fluffy).
Surrounding Area:
We took day trips everyday, to see and experience as much as we could. We started by stopping in Orvieto on the way up from the Rome airport for lunch, and ended the trip by touring down the coast and having lunch at a seaside restaurant.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The little town is about 1.3 miles away, which we found walkable, but it is hilly (as is all of Tuscany). The little grocery store is terrific. It has fresh bread every morning and Italian ham. That with some butter made for breakfast! It has all of the essentials. (The Coop (large grocery store) is about 15 minutes by car.) The town restaurant is an excellent Tuscan restaurant, serving the famous Tuscan steak. reservations are recommended. There is also an excellent pizzeria in town.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring American style Off. with all of the foliage, there are mosquitoes, and the American Off was more effective than the Italian version. There are screens on the windows, so inside is okay.
Directions:
We just used Google maps, and it was fine. Note that the last few miles are on narrow, hilly, curving roads. It was a bit of an adventure, but then the beautiful villa appeared.
Check In Out:
Alessandro met us when he said he would and was there when we said we needed to check out.

Overall:
In one word EXCELLENT. We had a great time hanging out by the pool or walking down the little lanes by the vineyards and olive trees taking in all the beauty. Alessandro the owner cooked us dinner one night and not only was it delicious we had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of that evening.
Enjoyed Most:
The scenic views. I'm a early riser and every morning there would be hot air balloons floating in the valley. It was spectacular. The house inside and out was meticulous.
Enjoyed Least:
I guess it would be the dogs across the way. They barked occasionally. It didn't really bother me as much as it did my friend who went to bed early.
Surrounding Area:
Everything. The small towns are beautiful, the people are friendly. The larger towns are so full of history and beautiful old buildings, again friendly people everywhere that are willing to help even though we spoke very little Italian.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montagnana was the nearest town. If you like to walk it definitely is within walking distance. It is no more then two miles and a beautiful walk.
Tips or Restaurants:
No you really don't have to bring anything but your personal belongings. Alessandro has everything there, adapters for your electronics, hairdryers and anything else you may need. Every restaurant we ate at was very good.
Directions:
Actually we rented a car and drove from Pisa to the villa with a GPS and never made a wrong turn it was easy. The roads are narrow and winding so be careful. We also used Waze ( a driving app ) we found it was easier just because we knew how to use it.
Check In Out:
No. Alessandro made everything very easy and smooth. Perfect vacation

Overall:
Couldn't have been any better. Loved every minute.
Enjoyed Most:
There were three couples and we all had our own room with bath and there was plenty of seating for all. Nicely decorated and spotless.
Surrounding Area:
The one thing is it is not close to a little town but perfect if you want to be out of town.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No, not within walking distance. About a 15-minute drive
Tips or Restaurants:
Get groceries on your way as the grocery store is not close; Yes, used gps
Directions:
Yes, used GPS; it really helped.
Check In Out:
Everything was smooth sailing. A perfect stay.
