Lovely place.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 8 days at this property in October. We were in four friends and our stay was very enjoyable. The place is beautiful and was perfect as a base to discover the beauties of Tuscany. Ricardo was very kind and gave us excellent tips on sightseeing and restaurants, especially the road between Taverne D'Arbia and Asciano. The landscapes are spectacular. The house is large so we could have each one's own bedroom. The internet also works very well. We would love to stay a few hours in the pool but it was not possible because it was cold.

Picturesque Hilltop Villa

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 women friends spent the first week of October at this beautiful villa just outside of Siena. The villa was clean and comfortable and well cared for. It was more than spacious for the 4 of us--giving each of us our own bedroom and 3 full baths was a plus. In fact, the house is large enough for a big family or a few couples to share. The living space was great for relaxing and comfortably furnished. Perfect for friends or a family to just hang out or share meals together. We especially liked the location which allowed us to make day trips to Siena, Florence, Montepulciano, Arrezzo and other nearby towns. The people in the nearby town of Casetta were friendly and welcoming. We found two local restaurants that were very good. Riccardo was very helpful, giving us suggestions of things to do while in the area and where to shop for food and supplies.. He even arranged for us to have an authentic Italian cooking class at the villa in the well equipped kitchen where we cooked breakfast every morning. The villa sits on a high hill so the view was amazing. We were so busy we didn't take advantage of the pool, but it would be great for a family with kids or just for relaxing. We would all welcome the chance to go back to this wonderful house on the hill.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure to have with us these guests. We always try to do the best for our guests so that they can have a wonderful vacation. We highly recommend everyone to try our cooking classes in the house, and wine tours! The house is in a perfect location to visit all over Tuscany, just 2 minutes from the main road, 15 minutes from Siena, one hour from Florence. You can also easily visit Rome and Venice

Amazing Place. You won't be sorry staying here.

  • 5 of 5

We researched a lot of places in Tuscany and we were very pleased to get lucky and find this beautiful villa just outside of Tuscany.

There are some decent running trails around. You are in a great position to do day trips (and about 15-20 minutes from Siena). The pool is great and the house itself is a work of art. Our family loved staying here.

Thank you, Riccardo, for everything. We really appreciate your hospitality.

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is wonderfully location near Siena. We were also able to drive to Venice, Florence, and Rome with no problems. Excellent location. It is also a very spacious and beautiful location with gorgeous views. It is a great place to stay (I just wish we were there later to have been able to enjoy the pool!) Four separate and spacious bedrooms for the four of us celebrating my mom's 70th birthday! Thank you for the great hospitality!

Very nice stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay in Riccardo's villa. The location is amazing: uphill we felt alone in Tuscany. From the garden the sight is breathtaking (you can see Sienna). The short 15-20min drive to Sienna's car parks made it easy to organize our days between visits and enjoying the pool. We were a couple and 4 children and had of course plenty of space. The rooms upstairs and living room/kitchen on the groundfloor gives everyone privacy. Kitchen very well equipped. The house has large windows and all bedrooms equipped with moskito nets so it is easy to refresh the house at night. We did not even need the air conditioning though it was in August! And last but not least Riccardo and his family were very welcoming and helpful. Thank you and hope to come back soon!
