If you are planning a visit to the heart of Tuscany, look no further, this is the place. Not only will you not regret it, you will find other places to pale by comparison. Dorita and Vincent have put their heart and soul into creating a beautiful private setting on their property . It is spacious, spotless, and modern with everything you need to enjoy your day to day activities be it touring or just hanging out on the deck watching the sunset with a glass of wine. What truly makes this a wonderful place to stay is the thoughtful generosity of the hosts. They were always there to provide us with suggestions or directions to make our travels in the area more interesting and worry free. They took the time to check in with us but never intruded on our privacy. We stayed for five nights and our experience was that each day was better then the day before. The location was perfect for touring all those wonderful hilltop Tuscan towns, many just 15 to 20 minutes away. By the time we left we had bonded so closely with Dorita and Vincent it was like saying goodbye to family. We are already making plans to return for a longer stay.
It would definitely took more than 500 words to tell every wonderful detail and every experience we made in our ten-days-holiday to Tuscany. But I'll try and keep it short. We had a very warm welcome with fresh oranges, croissants, great red wine and all the needful small things you just need on your arrival - Dorita and her husband Vincent took care of everything. We immediately felt so comfortable. The pictures from the little villa in the profile were awesome but when we actually stood on the patio and had a look at our view we were going to have for the next ten days, we were just stunned and speechless. It's rare that reality is even more beautiful than the pictures you saw before. But here it was the case. Not only the view but also the villa was just perfect. Cosy, clean, and just tastefully and lovely arranged with all the passion for detail from Dorita and Vincent. We had a few days of rain but not even that could dampen our mood. We had wonderful trips to places we never imagined to be so unbelievably perfect. And there were all within a 20-120 minutes drive by car. Florence, Siena, Montepulciano, Pitigliano, just to name a few. And when you come back from a trip at the end of a day to your cute Tuscan villa, that you've rented and you just feel so happy to be finally "home" again, you just know you're having the perfect holiday. At the end and to sum up, I'd like to say that we'll never forget this holiday - not only because of Dorita's & Vincent's lovely hospitality, their great recommendations for secret must-sees and food, restaurants etc. But also because my boyfriend proposed to me on that very patio you can see in the pictures. It was the perfect place for it and we'll definitely come back next year to celebrate this day and to see Dorita, Vincent and "our" wonderful little Tuscan villa again...
Thank You Lisa for your wonderful review. You are truly one of the sweetest person my husband and I have had the pleasure of Hosting. It was such a pleasure to have you and David stay at our little Villa and see the joy and happiness in both of your eyes every day that you were here at our Villa in Tuscany. You didn't even mind the rain since it let you spend more time relaxing in the Villa. You even enjoyed staying in even on sunny days! It was great to talk to you and hear about all the places you enjoyed visiting. And David proposing to you on the Patio of the Villa, heightened this experience and memory of having you as Guests, to a very different level. It really blew me away and put you in a special place in my heart. We wish you both all the best.
Dorita and her husband are amazing hosts making our experience wonderful. They have been really attentive and easy reachable. House is really nice, we had everything we needed. It's located in really quet area and close to the nature. Sitting in the back yard you can see wild deer on the field. Wish we could stay longer. I would highly recommend to stay in Dorita's house and I guarantee you will have the best time ever.
Dorita and her husband are amazing hosts! From the minute we arrived at the villa to the minute we left, they went out of their way to make our stay fantastic! They had excellent recommendations for sights to see and restaurants to visit. They also let us wash our clothes in their washer and dryer! I did not see another dryer in my stay in Italy :) This allowed us to cut our packing in half!
The villa is just as it looks in the pictures. The kitchen has everything you need. The king bed is very comfortable. The patio outside is an amazing place to sit and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The internet is amazing! We were able to make video calls and do everything we needed without any problems.
We would love to come back and stay in the villa for longer time!
Even before we arrived, Dorita went out of her way in order to make our trip as smooth as possible. Dorita and Vincent were such lovely hosts who made us feel so welcome in their beautiful little house in the Tuscan countryside. There was a lovely bottle of wine waiting to be enjoyed on the terrace, alongside some fresh oranges and pastries which made for a carefree breakfast in the sunshine. We were given tips on places to visit and even lent bikes to explore the local area.
The house was very comfortable and had everything you could need to make for a lovely relaxed holiday -- we would recommend this place to anyone!!
Thanks for everything,
Matt and Tess
Dorita and Vincenzo made us feel like we were visiting family and we didn't want to leave. Sadly, we only stayed for one night, but I would definitely try to get back there! Dorita came to meet us to escort us to the villa, which can be a little difficult to find on gps, and over the course of those two days, they made themselves available for any questions...even offering to accompany us to places in case we got lost and working their connections to get us reservations at restaurants in Montepulciano! The accommodations themselves were exactly as shown with all the most modern conveniences. Heat and hot water were especially important since we stayed there during a cold snap and sadly weren't able to make more use of the patio. The building itself was amazing, but Dorita and Vincenzo really made the stay special. I would definitely stay here again...AND tell anybody else I know to do so, as well.
Thank You for your sweet comments. It is very rewarding to both Vincenzo and I that you and Berlin were happy and content during your stay at our Villa. We really enjoyed meeting both of you and could have talked for hours and days to our new friends. We wish you would have stayed for a longer period, but hope you will both come back again soon. Or maybe we will surprise you in NY.
Merece mucho la pena. Hemos quedado encantados con todo.
Dorita y Vincent, contribuyen a que tu viaje mejore con sus atenciones y recomendaciones.
La casa está muy bien ubicada y es súper tranquila. Los alrededores invitan a todo: pasear, descansar, conocer pueblos cercanos (y no tan cercanos), disfrutar de la buena comida y de los excelentes vinos.
Ha sido una estancia maravillosa y, sin duda, lo recomendamos a todas las personas que piensen ubicar su campo base, o su punto de relax en esta zona.
De nuevo, muchas gracias Dorita y Vincent. Un abrazo muy grande.
About the Host, Dorita
My husband and I love Tuscany and all the beauty it has to offer. We enjoy the amazing wines, foods and people of Italy. Italy is rich in History, Architecture, Art, and Museums. We love the Tuscan countryside with it's beautiful rolling hills. We have traveled throughout Italy, North and South, and there are many other wonderful cities to visit and stay in, but have chosen Tuscany as our favorite place. Some of our favorite wine regions are close to our house, such as Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and Brunello di Montalcino. We have stayed as guests in some airbnb locations, and we have certain expectations of the place we rent, and the amenities we enjoy, so with that in mind we have decided to become a Host for airbnb. We hope to make people feel comfortable,welcomed and provide a clean space with some modern conveniences. We also know how important it is to be accessible for any questions or issues that may arise so we will be very accessible to our guests.
