The Dream on the Heart of Tuscany is an amazing property. It is set amid large grounds with olive trees and vineyards and looks out over beautiful Tuscan countryside. The view is fantastic and the sunsets were incredible. The house itself is huge, with more than enough space for the six in our group. The property also has a boules pit, space for volleyball/badminton and a wonderful pool that was a perfect temperature all week.
Sergio was a great host, meeting us when we arrived, showing us everything we needed to know about the property and even taking the time to show us around the local sites.
The local area is also beautiful. The house is a short drive from Cortona, and within easy reach of Sienna and Perugia. Day trips to Florence were very easy on the train.
Sergio recommended a local shop where we were able to buy excellent local produce, but there are also lots of supermarkets nearby.
We would recommend a meal at Ad Braceria in Cortona - the food and atmosphere were exceptional and all for a very reasonable price.
We certainly would recommend this property and thank you very much Sergio for a fabulous week!
Sergio was a great host. He spent a lot of time showing us around the property and the town, suggesting restaurants and even introducing us to a market owner. Our only complaints are 1) that the property is too large for just two people. The rooms are vast. Also, two of the bathrooms have showers with no shower curtains and the third shower was so tiny that we had a hard time using it.; and 2) that the beds and pillows were uncomfortable. If these things were fixed it would be a great family location.
This place is AMAZING. Me, my partner and our two children stayed in the villa. Its set amongst vineyards and has some of the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen.
Inside the villa is large and spacious and also equipped with wifi and Apple TV, several bathrooms a large kitchen and everything you could ever need really!
The swimming pool has a large polycarbonate cover that actually warms the pool - which is great for when you want to take a late night dip. Cortona was also a beautiful town.
I can't recommend staying here enough and really hope to stay again.
Sergio, Valentina and Miro were also excellent hosts. As we had a 10 month old baby with us and there wasn't a cot in the villa - they bought a brand new one for us to use! Awesome.
Spændte kørte vi seks mennesker mod Cortona fra Roms lufthavn og da vi et par timer senere stod i den lille by Ossaia, tænkte vi: Det her er da ikke Cortona, selvom det er tæt på 7 km står der vist på vejskiltet og Cortona viser sig smukt og markant på bjergsiden i baggrunden. Efter et telefon opkald hentes vi af Valentina , der smilende mens hun underskylder sit gode engelsk, fører os op til huset ca 150 m fra opsamlingsstedet. Og hvilket hus og beliggenhed. Stort - stort og mere end perfekt til 3 par. Den dejligste værelser og kæmpe fællesråd inde og ude. En fuldt funktionsdygtig omend ældre iMac computer er der minsandten også. Det bedste er nu udsigten, klimaet, duftene, poolen og pretanque banen, og det dejlige fællesskab stedet, huset og ferien skaber en vidunderlig ramme om.
Det værste et at forlade - ønsket om at lade tiden stå stille melder sig med sin anmassede styrke, men som altid kan det bare ikke lade sig gøre.
Så nu hjemme igen, må vi bare sige - det sted - hus, er et af de få steder vi virkelig har lyst til at gense og opleve. Der er masser af udflugter og bøger der henstår uåbnede, der!
We stayed at Sergio and Vale's wonderful home. Sergio was a wonderful communicator and kept in touch as we planned our holiday which included a friends wedding near Florence. The directions were great , as we approached the area Sergio kept in touch by text. He was very thoughtful, when he realised we may miss lunch he advised us on where to stop and met us with Val in an authentic roadside restaurant. After lunch we moved onto the fantastic house which was better than the photos , the pool is great, lovely gardens, table tennis, petanque all in the grounds. and introduced us to the best local shops and restaurants. Vale
was beautiful and really welcoming, this home is part of her ancestry. I am already planning my next trip back and look forward to being back in my dream in the heart of Tuscany summer 2014!
Sergios house in Toscany was fantastic. It i a very big and authentic house. Garden an pool area was nice and clean. Sergio was a fantastic host, showed us around i the area, shops, restaurants and he knows a lot about the history of Toscany.
We had a wonderful holiday and hope to come back.
The home is very nice and spacious, much bigger than we expected. Was more than able to comfortably accommodate my group of 6 people, the view of the Tuscan landscape is very nice, along with a big lawn and pool. Evening drives to nearby towns and villages for the tuscan experience is also very easy from this location. Sergio and his family are very hospitable and friendly and definitely helped make our experience one we will never forget. I highly recommend this place.
