My boyfriend & I stayed in Villa Sara during our Spring Break, from March 12th-16th, 2017. To say we enjoyed our stay would be understatement. It was amazing. Ricardo was very accommodating, welcoming & helpful. His wife is lovely as well! I wish we spoke more Italian. The land is beautiful, breathtaking & very peaceful. We would wake up in the mornings and sit outside, on top of the hill, it was sunny. We would sometimes sit out there for hours at a time. There's nothing like it. The house is big and beautiful-like something out of a movie, out in the Italian countryside. The photos do not do Villa Sara justice. You have to be there to see how amazing it really is. We had fresh towels, soap, firewood outside (chilly at night), warm blankets, plenty of kitchenware to cook, and there is a big wood-burning stove downstairs in the living room area. There is a giant table and plenty of chairs to sit outside. We loved our stay and did not want to leave. I would recommend taking the cooking class with Ricardo & his family. We regret not doing this because his family is so nice and welcoming. We were quite limited on days and had much to see, and the places were far to drive to. We will definitely come back here and will recommend to everyone. Thanks!!

Owner's Response: It is always a pleasure for us to host new people and we always try to do our best so that their holiday in Siena should be unforgettable. We usually give the keys personally and give advice to the guests for their stay. We are very pleased to receive reviews like this that will give us back our work. Riccardo and Leonardo Coradeschi

A tremendous house in a lovely location.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived for a week of rest and relaxation after a week helping/attending our daughter's wedding in Arezzo. This was the perfect tonic. Superb views from house and pool of wider Tuscan countryside and Siena. Lovely, comfortable home. Special thanks to Riccardo, Eliana and Sara for the special meal they prepared on Thursday which all enjoyed despite coping with a powercut for a while during a thunderstorm! We will not hesitate to return if the opportunity arises.

Beautiful and relaxing spot!

  • 5 of 5

My 3 generation family spent two wonderful weeks at this delightful spot. We ate outside every night at the large outside table. We then stayed out until after sunset enjoying the beautiful views overlooking Tuscany and Siena. It would be hard to find a place that is a more ideal setting. There were cooling breezes keeping it comfortable on hotter days. The area was a great starting point for day trips in a car as well as hiking. There were also days we just sat outside taking in the view. There was plenty of room for the eight of us. The kids used the pool at least once everyday. This was my first trip to Italy and really a place I'd like to return to, staying at Villa Sara.

Had a great time

  • 4 of 5

Riccardo and his family were so friendly and helpful. The villa was clean and comfortable and spacious perfect for our large group of family and friends. Could benefit from some updating but everything worked and we had no complaints and enjoyed our stay very much. The wow factor was the views absolutely stunning and the location good for exploring but benefitting from privacy too. Having the pool was an added bonus but possibly it is not child friendly due to raised area but it was not a problem for our group. Definitely one of our best holidays so would consider returning. Thank you Riccardo and family.

Breathtaking scenery and villa living experience

  • 4 of 5

Old world country house that fits 8 people nicely. In house pasta making, delicious requested prepared food and unbeatable scenery. Take the cooking class and I’m home cooking —- it makes the villa experience complete. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Small kitchen. No dryer but plenty of sun to do some environmentally conscious laundry. Awesome family and hospitality, always available to make sure your stay is the best. Highly recommend.

House outside of Siena

  • 4 of 5

The pluses of this property include a great location (on a hill 15 minutes outside of Siena) , a very responsive owner and more than enough room for a large family (we were only two adults and two children). The only thing preventing me from giving a five star review is that the furniture was bit worn/dated as well as the kitchen equipment.
