Customer Reviews

Overall:
Beautiful property that provided all the space needed for a large group traveling together. The gardens were well cared for. The living room is upstairs in the main house and we only used it one evening but it was the perfect size.
Enjoyed Most:
The villa is the picture perfect Italian property. The rustic charm of the property with restored home standing next to ruins that tell their own story. The views from the pool are gorgeous and far enough out it was a tranquil setting.
Enjoyed Least:
The mattresses were uncomfortable.
Surrounding Area:
The house is set far enough outside of Capolona to feel secluded. Capolona is a small town that offers groceries and some restaurants. Arezzo is close enough to go and enjoy a larger town atmosphere.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Market, Pharmacy, Restaurants. NO, they are not walking distance from the property.
Tips or Restaurants:
There should be a guide book in the home. BIGGEST suggestion would be (for US travelers in particular) to note the name of the train platform that is walking distance from the house (BACIANO). List that it exists and that the train schedule is posted at the platform. There is LIMITED taxi service to the property and they never knew how to get to the home. Even offering the coordinates didn't seem to help some of the guests that came without renting a car. They could have easily and very cost effectively caught the train at the house into Capolona and into Arezzo. We were only given ONE set of keys. With 16 people that was a problem because someone had to be at the house or in a grouping to arrive at the house in time to let the others inside. If there is a way to entry to at least one door with a code lock or phone lock access that would be ideal.
Directions:
Visitors MUST use the GPS coordinates. There is no sign or marker to confirm the house address. I felt terrible because some friends attempted to book taxi rides for several days and they cab company could never find the property and they had to call Alexandra to get instructions on how to find the home. They bothered her more times than I care to admit (I had a car).
Check In Out:
Check in and Check out process was simplistic. For someone looking to leave early to make flights in Florence there could be an issue because you have to wait for someone to come to refund the cash security deposit.

Angela, June

Overall:
The villa was beautiful. Overall we had a wonderful time.
Enjoyed Most:
We felt safe! Loved the pool and sofas by the apricot tree.
Enjoyed Least:
The noise from passing trains.
Surrounding Area:
We liked that it was close to many villages including Florence.
Tips or Restaurants:
There is a simple food store around the corner. Note that the apartment isn't attached to the main house.

Lauren, July

Overall:
The facilities were palatial! There are large bedrooms and a dining room. This was important because we were a family of 19. The house was very accommodating with a large walled back yard and pool. The hit of the two weeks was a large apricot tree that rendered fresh fruit each morning.
Enjoyed Most:
It was spacious, private, beautiful, comfortable.
Enjoyed Least:
The train that ran by every morning. The bathroom showers were not enclosed properly so water ran onto the floor.
Surrounding Area:
The views, the proximity to Arezzo, the proximity of trains to wherever you may want to travel. A few local restaurants.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Capolona was the nearest small town. Definitely within walking distance. Approximately a 20-30 minute leisurely walk although it was along a road with many cars.
Tips or Restaurants:
Several local family restaurants: Chennos in Subbiano and Hotel Relais de Flores a few minutes away. The owner can give you the name of a couple of others. There are a couple of supermarkets very close by to get food for the kitchen.
Directions:
The GPS does not recognize the address given but when we put in the coordinates we found it.
Check In Out:
Call ahead of time to tell them when u will be there. It was a pleasure to meet Lydia and Eugenia was a constant source of help and information when we needed it.

Peter, July

Overall:
The villa was spacious and fit all 14 in our group very comfortably. Overall, it was a very enjoyable experience.
Enjoyed Most:
The spacious house and bedrooms. The grounds were well kept and there were plenty of plates/cups/utencils and other necessities.
Enjoyed Least:
The house remained quite cool and since we did not want to pay extra for heat we had to bundle up at night. Also, the showers in the bathrooms leaked, leaving the bathrooms very wet.
Surrounding Area:
There was a large grocery store about 10 minutes from the property which was very convenient. Also, the property was about an hour from the main tourist sites in Tuscany (Siena, Florence, Chianti) and we were charmed by some of the towns closest to the villa (Poppi, Arezzo).
Nearby Events or Locales:
You can walk to Capolona.
Tips or Restaurants:
Spend some time in Arezzo. It was an unexpected highlight. Make sure to bring slippers and loungewear!
Directions:
Make sure to enter the given coordinates into your phone GPS. Google maps (based on the address) took us to a completely different town! The coordinates worked.
Check In Out:
The woman (Eugenia) who checked us in and out was very friendly and helpful. She was quick to responded to any emails and questions we had.

Alexis, October

Overall:
Being in Tuscany was fabulous and the property was truly a Villa.
Enjoyed Most:
The amazing grounds and many bedrooms.
Enjoyed Least:
There was no shower curtain in the tub-showers, so there was no way to keep the floors dry. They became very wet and unsafe.
Surrounding Area:
We love the proximity to the Chianti region and Florence.

Anne, October

Overall:
Enjoyed it very much.
Enjoyed Most:
Making fires.
Enjoyed Least:
The cold temperature, and I heard a lot of complaints about showers (from tub-showers) flooding the floors. (I stayed in the separate house in back.)
Surrounding Area:
The natural beauty.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No, even though it was a short drive the roads are so narrow I wouldn't suggest walking them, especially at night.
Tips or Restaurants:
Slippers! For Americans used to carpet and rugs slippers came in very handy.
Directions:
State that the villa is near the train stop (utilize the landmark!), and give GPS coordinates.

Zoe, October

Overall:
A very enjoyable stay.
Enjoyed Most:
The gardens and space in living and dining areas.
Enjoyed Least:
Small kitchen.
Surrounding Area:
Fabulous for touring and convenient to supermarket and good restaurants.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Subiano - a bit too far to walk.
