a wonderful property in the middle of nowhere

  • 5 of 5

Nicoletta, the owner, was very friendly and helpful throughout.

We spent a wonderful and comfortable week at this property, using it as a base to visit Siena, Florence and the surrounding area. We flew into Pisa and drove from there. We managed to get quite lost, I suggest putting Colonna Del Grillo into Google maps before leaving the airport. The main bedroom is extremely comfortable with a wonderful ensuite. The two other rooms are much smaller but charming.

The views are wonderful, particularly from the terrace, we spent many long meal times here relaxing under the loggia. The bar-b-que is excellent and the kitchen well stocked with all necessary equipment.

Beautiful stay in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a weekend at this lovely farmhouse with my family. There were five of us in total and there was plenty of space for eating dinners together, working in the kitchen, relaxing outside and lounging in the living room. The house is spotlessly clean, beautifully updated and very functional. We were very comfortable there and could easily have stayed much longer.

We were a short drive from Siena and about 45 minutes from the Val d'Orcia area - which is rich with gorgeous scenery, castles and stunning villages.

Throughout the reservation process, the days leading up to our arrival and during our stay, Nicoletta was a wonderful host. She was easy to communicate with and quick to reply to our questions. She was warm and accommodating when we met her at the house.

Grazie, Nicoletta!

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.
