High End Villa in Convenient and Stunning Location

  • 5 of 5

Upon arrival we realize that this villa was the best kitchen for cooking we have ever stayed at. The appliances are all upgraded and it is well equipped. We had a wonderful time staying here. It is not far off the highway making it easy to tour around the area. The en-suite bathrooms make the stay quite comfortable for two couples or a family. There are lots of wonderful dirt roads to hike with no traffic, lots of wildlife, and beautiful sunsets. The owner was helpful and responsive. I would say it may be slightly light on stock items such as hand soaps but there was plenty of salt and oil. Lots of pots and pans. If you plan to use the BBQ which is awesome and I recommend grab a set if tongs to flip your meat. It can be a bit tricky finding the place but the owner was able to help us navigate. I recommend finding Colonna del Grillo on GPS then proceed with directions provided.

Fantastic Home and Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

Well, in a word -- FANTASTIC! My family (two teenage boys and two adults) stayed for the first week in July. The home is finely decorated with all of the necessary items. Kitchen was excellent and usable. We like to cook and so we did. Great out door eating. There is a barbeque which we unfortunately did not get a chance to use. The pool is heated and immaculate. The home is off the beaten path and in farm lands -- it is essentially an upscale townhouse enclave which appears to be a restoration of old brick Villa -- don't know the history but the architecture was first class. It had a nice shared court yard in front of the home with surrounding private and well maintained yards. Garden areas are beautiful.

Upon our initial approach when we were driving up to the premises we turned around thinking it was too nice. Surprise -- it was our place!

As for getting to Siena, it takes about 15 minutes by car. But do watch out for the speed traps where pictures are taken at about the 10 and 6 KM markers heading into Siena (going the other way towards the A1 there is a speed trap at about 12 KM from the home). Working with Nicoletta was seamless -- she made herself available to make sure our stay was excellent

-- and it was excellent. Siena is simply a wonderful city and staying at this home provided all of the comforts and access. You can't go wrong booking this home.

Owner's Response: It was a great pleasure for me hosting Debbie, Nelson and their sons. They were very friendly, positive and independent. Could I ask for more? They also took great care of my place. I can easily recommend them as guests to any other host! Take care Nicoletta

Beautiful Tuscan Expereince

  • 5 of 5

Our experience with Nicoletta and her property could not have been better. She was a perfect host and helped us enjoy our stay. The property offered spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside and swimming in the pool was like something out of a movie. We really annoyed our stay.

Beautiful House, Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

After spending 8 days in Rome and Florence, it was such a relief to arrive at this home. The location, view and landscaping is absolutely beautiful. Inside there is everything you need as well as lovely furnishings. Nicoletta could not have been more responsive and helpful both before and during our stay.

Wonderful house, beautiful scenery.

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 adults that stayed at the house.

Everything was excellent. The house was really up to date and the hostess was lovely.

The place is nicely seclusive in the country side, surrounded by beautiful scenery.

The bedrooms are nice, the living room was a common relax place for all of us during the evening where we relaxed and watched movies/talked after the travels during the day.

The pool and the pool area was nice and even thought it was a communal pool for the few houses there, there was usually nobody using it except us.

The is a nice restaurant nearby as well as wine tasting/vineyard.

We recommend having a car when staying there if you plan on wandering around.

Thank you for having us Nicoletta :)

A beautiful house and a wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

I have just returned from a fantastic break at Nicoletta's beautiful holiday home. The house and its surroundings are even more stunning than the pictures show, and the main living room has a real "wow" factor as you walk in. I went on holiday with my parents, husband and toddler and the layout of the bedrooms worked perfectly for us. My parents stayed in the main bedroom which is tastefully decorated with exposed beams, and a really stylish ensuite. The other two bedrooms have a lovely adjoining bathroom so it worked perfectly with our toddler.

We were lucky to have warm weather while on holiday and so we really appreciated the various shaded areas in the garden when we wanted to escape the heat. It was also really enjoyable having breakfast sat outside and being able to smell the lavender in the garden.

We were bitten quite a lot while out and about in the evenings so it was fantastic that the house had discreet mosquito protectors on all the windows and kitchen door.

Whilst the swimming pool is communal for the hamlet, it's only a three minute walk from the house with a stunning mountain top view, and is only shared with a handful of houses. We barely saw anyone else at the pool during our stay!

The nearest restaurant is a five minute drive or a 30 minute walk away. It's an authentic local restaurant with lovely food. You also don't need to drive much further to come across other great restaurants. It's a really pretty area with Siena only 20 minutes away and the Chianti region on your doorstep.

Nicoletta was really helpful during the run up to our stay and this continued during our holiday. A lovely lady with a lovely holiday home!

It was our first time booking accommodation directly with an owner through this kind of website so we were a little anxious initially. But there was nothing to worry about; the house is fantastic and we wouldn't hesitate recommending it to others.
