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.

Family-Friendly Villa in the Tuscan Hills

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 (4 children under 10 years old) had a lovely stay at this villa in Tuscany. The house is so nice and comfortable and perfect for exploring the Tuscan countryside.

The kids loved the courtyard patio and swing in the backyard. And the upstairs bedrooms were perfect for 4 kids. Nicoletta had included stuffed animals and some toys in the kids' rooms which was nice. The kitchen could have had a few more cooking utensils. The pool is nice, but all one height so bring floaties if you have small children that don't know how to swim.

We were able to visit Assisi, San Gimignano and other hillside towns. We also did a Nonna Ciana cooking class nearby which was great. Overall, the house was perfect for our adventures and felt like home for 6 nights.

Beautiful cottage and breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to be away from the crowds, this is the place for you! This small community is perfectly located to visit many Tuscan towns. Close to Siena and one hour from Florence but also near smaller more quiet villages where you can sightsee and get all the fresh food supplies you need. This beautiful stone cottage and the views are as shown in the pictures and even better! We are a family of 5 and we were very comfortable. The pool area has panoramic views on the Tuscan hills. The cottage is surrounded by beautiful private gardens. The outside eating area is to die for! Spotless and with all amenities needed. Tastefully furnished and decorated. More quiet and beautiful than our expectations!

We loved everything about our stay and our host, Nicoletta, greeted us with a warm welcome. She was available to answer any questions or give suggestions. We did not want to leave! We plan on coming back!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Even though we did not end up booking this property for our stay, we've had an absolute wonderful experience corresponding with Nicoletta! The only reason we chose not to book was because of our work situation while we are in Tuscany. Nicoletta has been very kind, patience and generous with her time as we were trying to figure out a way that we could stay at her beautiful villa. She has gone far beyond what I have ever experienced while booking an accommodation in another country. She is continuing to help us plan our trip to Tuscany even though we won't be staying at her home. She has a wealth of knowledge about the area and seems to be very happy to help her guests plan many details of their stay in Tuscany. We hope we can stay with her another time!

Tolle Unterkunft für unsere Familie!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden sehr freundlich von Nicoletta empfangen. Sie hatte uns vorher schon auf unsere Bitte hin ein Babybett und einen Kinderstuhl bereit gestellt. Sehr lieb, danke.

Das Haus ist sehr schön und komfortabel ausgestattet. Wer gerne kocht, findet eine große Küche mit sehr großem Gasherd vor. Dazu passen natürlich die großen Esstische drinnen und auf der Terrasse (neben dieser gibt es noch eine weitere und den Gartenbereich zum Entspannen) und der gemauerte Grill. Wir haben hierauf unsere Florentiner Steaks zubereitet. Allerdings waren sie nicht ganz so köstlich geraten, wie die im nahe gelegenen Restaurant.

Das Schwimmbecken hatten wir immer für uns alleine. Die Lage des Hauses ist so, dass man die Sehenswürdigkeiten der Toscana mit dem Auto gut erreichen kann.

Perfekter Urlaub!!
