We had a lovely stay at the villa. The pool is beautiful and great for little kids. We were luck y to have the entire property for ourselves and spent a lot of time outside in the garden grilling and relaxing. The kitchens were very well equipped, the washing machine worked perfectly. Simona and Michele was very nice hosts and were very accommodating and friendly. Also, Fosco the housekeeper was great, he came by daily to take care of the pool, brought us a small kiddy pool for the little ones, replaced mosquito candles when required. Overall, the stay was perfect, we highly recommend you to rent this beautiful villa.
We had a great time at Simona's house. The area is all you dream about Toscana, with beautiful landscapes - including the house's garden. Simona and Michelle were great hostes, easy to contact and have us lots of information and good recomendations of places and restaurants Around. When we had a problem with One of the guests - a One year old baby that had allergic reactions due the smell of old furniture in his bedroom -note that it is a Country house that stays closed sometimes, what can be complicated for the allergic ones - Simona was very helpfull and provided a new room im the apartment on the second floor of the house. The overall experience was very nice and we already miss This trip.
An absolutely fantastic place close to Montalcchino, in the heart of Tuscan country. It's a 3 storied place with 12 bedrooms but each floor is a self contained exquisitely done apartment of 4 bedrooms, a drawing room, a 10 seater dining room and fully equipped kitchen. The house comes with sprawling lawns and a swimming pool which the weather permitted us to use. Simona has great recommendations to go to and eat at. We tried a few. La porta in Monticello and Forma in San Quirco. Both were superb.
We were lucky to have Simona and Michele for company for a few days. They are a most engaging couple!
This is one place where the pictures on Air BnB don't do justice. The place is much better than the pictures.
Simona was easily accessible throughout the booking process and during the stay and was most helpful.
Thanks for a wonderful time Simona and Michele.
What an amazing place to unwind. Perfectly located in one of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany. A super well equipped, comfortable and charming space, that's good value for money. We were slightly concerned with the lack of A/C but don't be, it can be cool in the evenings and due to the thick stone walls the temperature is not a problem. We were made to feel very welcome and the list of recommendations in the area was spot on. We wouldn't change a thing. Highly recommended.
We spent a wonderful week in beginning of august at Simona and Michele's villa. The house is ideally localised, near to Siena, Montepulciano and not very far from Firenze.
The house is in the middle of the Toscan grapes is very quiet and has a lot of charm.
The place is well equipped, and bedrooms as well as living rooms and kitchen are spacious, prettily decorated and very comfortable.
Swimming pool is ideal to relax and the overview on the campaign from this area is very nice.
Our host are friendly, welcoming and available to answer any question, and provided very useful advices for our tour.
We highly recommend Simona and Michele's villa for family or group of friend looking for a quiet place ideally localised to visit Toscan.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine dans cette maison aussi belle que pratique. Très vaste, elle est très agréable à vivre. Elle est située en plein milieu de la campagne toscane, le paysage est magnifique, il règne un calme absolu. La piscine est parfaite pour les enfants. L'accueil est chaleureux. Il y a tellement de choses à visiter dans les environs qu'une semaine ne nous a pas suffit. Nous espérons donc y revenir l'année prochaine !
We were two families 4 adults and 5 children staying in the ground floor apartment during August. We had the most wonderful time. This apartment is cool when temperatures outside good and hot. The apartment is well equipped and we wanted for nothing. There are lovely towns to visit and food shopping easy and near. The grounds of the villa provide a lovely pool for cooling off in, a wooded area with hammocks for relaxing and lots of lawn for playing if needed. We visited Siena during our stay and experienced a Palio rehearsal which was wonderful. There are also hot springs to visit which are magical. Our hosts knew the area really well and made our stay a home from home. I highly recommend this villa for a relaxing break of day visits to some wonderful places in beautiful countryside and poolside lounging Again thank you . Rebecca
