From Jun 1 - Aug 31, 2015 the minimum stay is 4 nights.
We were greated by Simone's father Cesare and found him to be very friendly and welcoming. He gave us a tour of the property and went over a map of the local area with my husband. The house felt very authentic to it's time and place. It was filled with very beautiful furniture (no IKEA here). The house was very clean. The pool and outdoor shower were great since it was very hot during our stay. The mattresses seemed a bit older, not super uncomfortable but not much life left in them. You must provide your own toilet paper beyond the first roll as it's not stocked. We didn't find the little local town to be very charming but you must absolutely go to the restaurant that his son Andrea' works at. It was one of our favorite meals! We wanted a jumping off place to go visit from and this was a great value I think for that. We took the train to Florence and the Cinque Terra and had nice visits but it was nice to come back to the pool and privacy of Simone's place.
We had an amazing time, it was lovely to meet you Simone and your father is a magic working with our car problem!!! The villa is just amazing, we loved the villa so much will be back in May or Sept 2016 when it's not so hot to do some walking. Your suggestions on places to go were excellent, thank you. If your ever in Sydney please look me up and I will take you on a guide tour of beautiful Sydney. Thx, Mel
We had an amazing stay at Villa Verde in Juni/July 2015! It is a wonderful and beautiful place and luckily we had the whole place to ourselves. The house is surrounded by a lovely garden and the pool area is perfect with sun beds and umbrellas.
It was everything we dreamt about when we booked our Tuscan Holliday!
We can definitely recommend Villa Verde for anyone visiting Tuscany.
Villa Verde is a great place! As a party of six people (4 adults and 2 children, aged 6 and 4) we stayed in Casa Concino, which appeared to be very spacious and comfortable. Don't be afraid to sleep on the 'divano letto' in the dining room. It is in fact a convenient king size bed, and both kitchen and terrace are excellent places to dine anyway. During our stay, the other house (Casa del Confaloniere) was not occupied, so we had complete privacy in garden and swimming pool. The garden, with many beautiful trees and shrubs, is a good place for playing hide-and-seek, or just to relax, look at the lizards and listen to the birds (especially the amazing nightingales in the evening!).
Cesare, the father of Simone, was very helpful in giving information and making us feel comfortable. For example, when we discovered one night that wasps were building nests in the garbage containers outside the gate, he removed them first thing in the morning! He also kept the swimming pool in good condition and delivered us clean sheets and towels at the beginning of our second week of staying.
The equipment of the house (kitchen utensils, washing machine etc.) was adequate. Only, wifi was down because of recent storm damage. But in rural areas, these things may happen.
The property is surrounded by a fence. This contributes to safety, but, on the other hand, a key is needed to get in and out through the gate. So be aware if you spit into parties when leaving the premises! There are many reasons to go out. For instance, one can walk through vineyards and orchards to the Romanesque church of Gropina. Or go down to a small brook in the forest behind the house - a good place to play with sand, stones and water. Also to observe animals like dragonflies and tadpoles. For a longer walk, the Pratomagno mountains are luring at the north-east horizon. And many beautiful towns, villages and monasteries are to be seen within an hour of driving distance. There is much, much more than can be done within the two weeks of our stay. We hope to come back again!
We have spent some beautiful days in the house. Peaceful and quiet land scape, generous hospitality by paolo , Cesar and the family , huge space , great location and every thing one needs for a wonder full vacation
Ho scoperto grazie ad un amico il sito www.airbnb.it e per fortuna ho trovato Villa Verde libera nel w.e. di Ferragosto quando le mie speranze erano ridotte al minimo…sono stata fortunata perché è un posto bellissimo ad un prezzo accettabile e giusto.
Simone è stato velocissimo nel rispondere alle mie e.mail e suo padre Cesare gentilissimo a dare tutte le informazioni per goderci al meglio il nostro, purtroppo, breve soggiorno.
La casa è veramente grande, pulita e funzionale, la cucina è attrezzata di tutto, arredata con gusto nello stile del tempo e luogo in cui si trova, circondata da vigneti ed uliveti dove fare passeggiate in tranquillità e sicurezza.
Abbiamo visitato poco i dintorni Loro Ciuffenna, la Pieve di Gropino e Pratomagno ma ci siamo goduti il giardino molto curato e la piscina fino al (website hidden) terrò conto anche per un w.e. invernale perché con i camini accesi la casa dovrebbe avere un’atmosfera di altri tempi.
Firstly, Simone answered our emails in the middle of his night, giving us helpful information and encouraging us to consider his listing. Boy, are we glad we did! We were received warmly by his father Cesare, and had a wonderful week in Tuscany in their beautiful home. The house is enormous and feels very authentic, given that it is still clearly managed with private care, not an anonymous realtor. The property is a beautiful rustic farmhouse with old-world furnishings, surrounded by vineyards and country roads with gorgeous sunset views over the lovely pool. The kitchen is well-stocked and is a pleasure to share meals in. The bedrooms are comfortable, and the bathrooms are very well-maintained with a working bathtub in one and a shower in the other. We are a family of 5 and had far more room than we needed. It is also perfectly situated, in between Florence Siena, and Arezzo, and a short 10 minute drive to Loro Ciuffena, an adorable mountain town with gelato, shopping, and one of the best restaurants we experienced in Italy. There is also a very friendly man with a stall selling produce, olive oil, wine, cheese, and pasta on the side of the road just down the street. We had a perfect week in Tuscany, and the price was very reasonable given the accommodations. Hopefully we'll be back!
Of note, there is a second apartment in the house and we were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves for the majority of the time. Ideally, this would be a perfect property for two families to share so that they could have the whole place to themselves.
Thank you to Simone and Cesare!!
