We spent a wonderful time in Raf & Lila´s apartment at the end of october.
Looking forward for a few calm and relaxing days in Toscany, our stay there was perfect and exactly what we hoped for.
It`s a very lovely place where you will find everything you need. And if not: just ask Raf and Lila, they are really helpful with everything. Especially if you need some information about taking trips to nice places, buying food or vine etc. („royal salami“, for example – made in the village nearby ☺). Raf told us about a beautiful small beach nearby and we spent a perfect day there, swimming in the ocean in the last days of october.
Piloni is a very small and calm village, there is a small shop were you can buy some food.
We spent many evenings in front of the apartment, where you have a wonderful view, overlooking the valley and the Tuscan landscape. Cooking in a fully equipped kitchen. Sleeping in a cosy small flat, inside an old house built in the 19th century.
We really would like to come back, maybe next year, and absolutely recommend to stay at Raf&Lilas place.
Thanks to Raf&Lila!!!
Raf is a wonderful host and provided us with the location of a great little hot pool within an hours drive of the house. He even helped out when we had issue with our rental car. The house is set in a very small town in a nice piece of countryside. The kitchen is perfect if you want to prepare some of your own meals.
My only issue was that the internet signal was very weak and only worked when you were out in the garden. However Raf mentioned he was looking into getting a signal booster so it may not be a problem for long.
Una experiencia inolvidable, el lugar tranquilo, el departamento acogedor, límpido y decorado con muy buen gusto. Raf es un exelente anfitrion y nos ayudo mucho. Esperamos volver pronto.
We absolutely loved our stay at Raf and Lila's place. It is an amazing location, the apartment is charming and amazingly clean, Raf and Lila are kind, warm and speak several different languages including perfect English. This was one of our best Airbnb experiences to date. Thanks Raf and Lila!
I would highly recommend a stay with Raf and Lila. The place is extremely clean, with a fully equipped kitchen.
The town itself is extremely small, which gives you a unique perspective of Tuscany. While staying there we visited a natural hot springs, toured some small mountain towns, and filled up our 5L jug (provided by Raf) with wine from a local winery.
Additionally Raf and Lila are so wonderful. We had dinner with them one evening, providing them some euro to cover the cost for food. What we received in return was an amazing meal! I definitely recommend you try their Pumpkin Gnoccihi!
Great location. And great experience. Do try.
Keep in mind if you require Internet, they do have good Internet reception, but it can only be accessed outside on the patio.
We loved our peaceful week in Poloni at Raf and Lila's. We felt completely at home and enjoyed the apartment which is lovely and well-equipped. Raf had lots of suggestions about places to visit and was especially helpful when it looked like I might have a dental emergency (yikes!). He arranged for me to get the homeopathic remedy I needed and all was well. We'd be happy to stay at their place again.
We had a wonderfull stay with Raf & Lila.
They mad us feel very welcome and showed us the best places to eat and explore. Taking us to a local Tuscan meat factory to taste some delicious meats at great prices. We cooked some wonderful meals in the apartment assisted by fresh basil and thyme from Raf's well tendered garden. What beautiful people and place.
We couldn't have asked for a better hope. Perfect
Bravo Raf and Lila

Raf and Lila are awesome, always helpful and always with a good advise where to go and which nice places to visit. The apartment is just great and a perfect mix of Tuscan flair and modern ambiente (eg the bathroom is completely new and so nice). Infront of the house is a little garden and u have a beautiful view on Tuscan hills and in the night u can enjoy the stars in the sky while drinking a nice red wine :)) Thanks for everything Raf and Lila, hope to see u soon!
Nous avons passé 5 jours très agréables dans la maison de Raf et Lila. L'appartement propose tout le confort et il est décoré avec beaucoup de gout. D'autre part, Le jardin propose une jolie vue sur la campagne avec des ambiances différentes.
Raf (email hidden)ès chaleureusement et nous a conseillé de belles visites "Nature". La communication était très facile. Raf parle parfaitement le français.
Nous recommandons à tous les amoureux de la nature et d'endroits paisibles de venir séjourner chez Raf.
El apartamento es perfecto y los anfitriones también. Si buscas un alojamiento tranquilo para conocer el interior de la Toscana este es ideal. Necesitas coche y a pesar de ser distancias cortas a cualquier destino las carreteras son lentas, pero ya debes contar con ello cuando ves el mapa. A favor tienes un paisaje espectacular, ni un turista en kilómetros a la redonda y que puedes disfrutar del camino como parte del viaje.
Raf y Lila encantadores y muy comunicativos. Y repito el alojamiento es precioso y muy acogedor con un jardín estupendo.
