Apartment NONNA STELLA
Apartment with bedroom, kitchen corner and divan bed. Bathroom shower toilet all furnished in traditional Tuscan flavors
Villa Le Vigne farmhouse is in Caposelvi, near Montevarchi and San Giovanni Valdarno, the native town of Masaccio. We live 20 minutes far from Arezzo, 40 minutes far from Florence and Siena that you can reach by train or by car. There are many nice things to do in this area such as wine tasting, olive oil tasting, horse riding and shopping! Prada, Gucci and D&G malls are near here!
We live close to Chianti and we can help you planning your trip in Tuscany!
We make one kind of white wine and three kinds of red wine.
I speak English, and we will be glad to meet you soon!
*If you will come in September/October , you can take part in the harvest grapes with our family in the our vineyards, having a free lunch with us!!*

We planned on staying in one of the standard B&B rooms at Villa le Vigne but when we contacted Andrea it turned out that these had all sold out. We were offered the Stella Apartment instead and accepted. Annoyingly we didn't notice that breakfast isn't included with the apartment, it didn't matter as we grabbed food in the super market in town. Frustratingly there isn't any storage for food (apart from in the fridge) and so we had to keep things on the worktop. We were a bit disappointed that the basics like salt and oil weren't available as buying them for a 4 night stay is a bit excessive. Luckily for anyone who stays there next we left the massive box of salt!
Upon arrival we were greeted with roses on the bed, a lovely touch to help us celebrate an anniversary.
The apartment was clean, tidy and nicely decorated. The TV was unwatchable from the sofa due to where it has been placed on the wall, the WiFi is temperamental but free.
The location is a mixed bag. On the plus: Lovely views, close to Chianti, not far from the main roads. On the downside: close to the uninspiring Montevarchi but not really walkable. There are no restaurants within walking distance.
On the whole we had a nice time. There were positives and negatives but what holiday rental doesn't have both?
Site exceptionnel (Oliviers, Vignes), Appart. exceptionnel. Merci à Andrei, Barbara et Debora pour le merveilleux séjour.
Un seul petit commentaire.. la piscine ferme à 19h00. Lorsque tu reviens d'une longue journée de de 'Visiting' vers 19h30 un petit saut à la piscine est apprécié. Monsieur Andrei a retardé la fermeture de la piscine à 2 reprises pour nous. Un gros merci !
Le petit Minou blanc va nous manquer..
La famille Roy.
Andrea and Barbara are wonderful hosts, with a beautiful farmhouse on the hill. Monica, who helps run the show, is also very nice and helpful. The house is gorgeous sitting on a hill surrounded by vines, and olive trees, with immaculate apartments and a lovely pool to relax by. Andrea and Barbara will gladly help guide you around Tuscany, taste the superb wines they make, and make you feel right at home giving you as much privace as you would like. My wife and I have stayed all over Europe for the last 3 months and this was easily one of the nisest places we stayed, great value, excellent location, and hosts that matched. Thanks Villa Le Vigne we hope to make it back some day!
