Interaction with guests

I live 3 Km far form the villa so i'll be able to be there in a very short time in case of need.
I use to go to the villa and check if everything is ok twice a week....but the frequence changes a lot according to the level of privacy my guests require.

My six childhood friends and I had a wonderful vacation at Matteo’s beautiful place celebrating our special birthday(s). Matteo has been very responsive and helpful from the very first interaction. His father Franco greeted us warmly and showed us this beautifully restored old farmhouse turned into a villa with a great taste. He gave us recommendations about places to visit, a brief history of the place and the area and was also quick to fix couple of small issues we had. He even brought us a bottle of olive oil from the olives growing at this estate. Matteo came to visit us and even stopped to buy some laundry detergent for us after coming late from work. The house is spacious and welcoming although we spent most time outside enjoying warm Tuscan hues reflected by sun and moonlight. Olive groves, pool and Jacuzzi are kept immaculately. Very quiet and private area. We left with heavy hearts but also with wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks Matteo and Franco!

We LOVED this place. The reviews that we read were very accurate and met all of our expectations. We would add that all members of the Grifoni family that we met (including the daughter who was getting married one of the weeks of our stay but still delivered us some fresh towels) were great. Any concerns we had were addressed promptly and with courtesy. The beds were most comfortable, we loved seeing Sergio in the morning as he worked in the garden, kept the pool clean for us, etc. The setting was so beautiful and the views over the valley were consistently gorgeous, even the one day that we had a bit of rain. Over the course of 3 weeks we had 30 family members and friends come and go from around the world (USA, Canada, Australia, Brazil) and no one ever felt crowded, there were many gathering places and many private spaces. The house, over 200+ years, was charming and a beautiful oasis away from the hectic pace of the world. We would highly recommend L'Oliveta. Grazie mille, Dianne

Matteo's house is tucked away from the regular humdrum of life. If you are seeking a quiet time away from the rush of life this is the perfect quasi rustic place to get away. Away from the madness of the big city, be prepared to drive a bit for quality food and groceries .... internet is a bit spotty but the location is amazing. The house was exactly the way it was described ... over 200 years old, nicely maintained not overdone .... everything worked ... rustic if you are willing not to expect big city conveniences ... we didn't experience the pool and the hot tub being winter but can well imagine how that could be perfect in another season. Natural gas consumption is extra and a bit expensive ... but the hosts are tremendous ..Matteo is a busy young man and was generous in helping us secure restaurant bookings for New Year's Eve , his father turned up with a bottle of wine and very very conversational ... great break with friends at Matteo's farm house ... can do day trips to Firenze, Sienna, Cortona, Arezzo if you are prepared to drive a bit .... highly recommended !

The villa is the most ideal version of Tuscany you can hope for. The view is religious. The rooms are cozy. The olive orchard is serene. We had a private chef waiting for us when we arrived and she cooked a traditional Tuscan meal and it was amazing. I would come here every season if I could. Only bummer was the jacuzzi wasn't working. The driveway is a little treacherous with a large car. All minor compared to everything else. Highly recommend

The villa was absolutely amazing!! It's spacious and rustic and perfect!! We went here to get married and the setting and atmosphere of the villa was perfect. We were running late and Matteo and his father were accommodating and understanding. I highly recommend this to everyone!!

We spent our Thanksgiving holiday here at Mateo's villa. The location was large enough for three families, well stocked and had everything that the 10 of us need to prepare a large dinner. The house is clean, well kept, and had all the essentials. When we arrived, Mateo's mother escorted us to the villa, recommended a fabulous restaurant, and even made us all reservations (such a warm welcome). The view of the valley and hills in the distance are breath taking and such an amazing site to awaken to every morning. The experience and time spent at Mateo's villa will be well remembered. I would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for an amazing get away in the Chanting hills. Thanks for having us Mateo. Jenny and Bryan
