Dear Silvia, we had the best moments of our life at your place and we enjoyed the serenity of the place. Rooms had great views and excellent facilities. We enjoyed your hospitality and my daughter loved dog and cats!
Like to come back and will recommend everybody as a must stay place for authentic Italian experience. Convey our regard to your family . By the way wine was excellent, wish I did purchase some more !
We loved our stay at Belsedere. The plays and the apartemet, Le Logge was excately as we had imagined, beautiful, calm surroundings. We had a lovely dinner together with the host and her daughter.
Our stay at Silvia's beautiful estate was absolutely amazing! Everything we could have wished for and more. The view right around the property was incredible and it was a delight waking up every morning to the sight of sunburnt rolling hills. The pool also had incredible views and was a great escape from the heat. Very relaxing and a great addition to the place. Everything from the magnificent garden to the olive trees that surrounded the property was perfect! Silvia also hosted a lovely dinner for us and the other guests - which was an absolute bonus. Silvia and her family are incredibly warm and welcoming. Definitely a highlight of our trip! Couldn't recommend this place more. We will be back.
We spent 4 nights in a lovely apartment at Silvia's house. The pictures do not do the apartment or the grounds justice - it really is very beautiful and excellent value for money. The breakfast is fantastic and Silvia and her family were quick to offer advice when we asked for it. We are hoping to come back soon!
Le logement est conforme aux photos, propre et bien équipe, l'endroit est magnifique. L’accueil est chaleureux.
The estate is perfectly located in Tuscany within a few km from the main towns such as Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano. The estate is in a great setting and the views are just wonderful. The accommodations were very comfortable. It was very easy to communicate with Silvia's assistant Laura via email (her recommendation of La Toraia was excellent). We saw Silvia on a daily basis when she was setting the great daily breakfast. Highly recommended!
We just returned from 3 nights in lovely Belsedere vineyard, and we loved it. We had the upstairs appartment with two lovely bedrooms and two baths, plus a sitting room with a kitchenette and dining table. Everything was very quaint, clean and lovely in every way. We particularly enjoyed the spectacular views, and the amazing breakfast spread served every morning! Coffee, juice, toast, pastry, ham, cheese, salami, yogurt, cereal... fantastic! Our 9-year old daughter also loved the park, and the friendly dog and cat. Silvia and her husband were very friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. We only wish we hadn't bought other wine bottles and filled our suitcase, because we tasted the Belsedere wine at the local eatery (Il Conte Matto), and it was very good! We'll have to come back to buy directly from Belsedere!
Highly recommended! *****
