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.
In the neighborhood there's a beautiful tennis ground, a lot of walks along the moutain hiking the nature and the countryside and the possibility to ride horses and have wonderful wine tasting tours!
The villa is in the Chianti countryside and there're almost no public transports that connect it with the surroundings. Having a car is necessary because the nearest village is 3 Km far from the villa.

What a lovely house in a beautiful setting. Matteo and his parents were incredibly welcoming and helpful before and throughout our stay, the house exceeded our expectations and there was plenty to do. We loved the pool, hot tub, covered outdoor eating area and obvious care taken of the house and garden by the host. Our whole family loved our first experience of Tuscany. Wouldn't hesitate to book this villa again.
Henkeäsalpaava maisema, lämpö ja vehreys! Ystävällinen palvelu.
Toscanan maisemia ja sen värejä ilta-auringon punatessa laaksoa on vaikea kuvailla.
Kerrassaan ainutlaatuista! Villassa oli tilaa meille kaikille, 10 hlö, ja kaikki saivat rauhassa nauttia yksityisyydestä. Viilennystä olisin kaivannut makuutiloihin, koska päivällä lämpöä oli jopa liikaa.
We arrived on a Sunday night with 9 children in tow. Our host was aware that we were arriving in the evening and that we had a number of small children with us and had told us that the shops were closed on Sundays. Although he was welcoming and gave us a small bottle of olive oil that was it. There was no coffee or tea etc - absolutely nothing in the place at all! We have stayed at other AirBNB places and have always been left a pack of essentials to get you going and indeed I rent an apartment on AirBNB and leave many essentials in the cupboards. It was a disappointing start and did cast a cloud over our enjoyment as I found it difficult to forget. I have twin babies and there wasn't even a small bottle of milk left. Our first night was therefore quite a challenge to get the children fed in a small village where most of the restaurants were closed. The house was clean and the setting beautiful. We had the chef come and cook one of the nights which was lovely and worth the money for adults.
The house is essentially semi detached as it is connected to another property which I didn't expect. The area is very beautiful.
I’m not used to reply to my guests review, and also this time i thought about it several times before replying, but this time i have to.
From your review i get aware about a feeling that you never communicate to me during your staying….i use to ask frequently if everything is ok to my guests and is very disappointing on my side to receive good feedback personally and then to receive a review like yours.
I’m sorry for your troubles during the beginning of your stay but i don’t think to be responsable of it: you guessed to find things that i never told to provide, neither to you or to any other guest.
I worked to satisfy all your expressed requests, including the 2 baby cots and baby chairs that i provided in the villa, and if you would have asked me to buy some basicall stuff for your arrival, i would have been glad to do it for you...But you didn’t. So you have to blame yourself because you didn’t managed properly the situation, not me.
I don’t think that is right to be judged on the base of unexpressed personal and subjective expectations, it doesn’t work in this way.
I’m not trying to justify with you (as i told before i don’t think to have to) but i want only to get on objective perspective to the ones that will read your review.
Wir waren im Juni 2015 für eine Woche in der Villa von Matteo. Wir hatten eine ausgezeichnete, sehr schöne Zeit dort. Die Villa liegt etwas abseits in den Wein- und Olivenbergen der Region. Der nächste Supermarkt ist etwa 4-5 Kilometer entfernt. Mit dem Auto oder einem Fahrrad aber gut zu erreichen.
Die Villa ist ein altes Anwesen, das sehr geschmackvoll renoviert wurde. Bäder und Zimmer sind in sehr gutem, Zustand. Alles so, wie es auf den Bildern zu sehen ist. Die ganze Anlage ist sehr gepflegt mit einem schönen Garten, mit Bäumen und Blumenbeeten. Tip-Top sauber.
Den Platz für die Schlüsselübergabe zu finden war etwas schwierig, aber hatte dann dennoch problemlos geklappt. Matteo hat uns zweimal besucht und sich nach dem rechten erkundigt.
Es gab einmal ein kleines Problem mit dem Internet bzw. dem Durchlauferhitzer (leckte), worum sich Matteo aber umgehend und sehr professionell gekümmert hat. Dafür nochmals herzlichen Dank!
Wir können einen Aufenthalt bei Matteo vollends weiterempfehlen!
Matteo welcomed us with a warm welcome showed us around the property and the outside amenities. Also welcomed us with two gifts, one ,olive oil that he and is family produce and a bottle of the Santcto vino Liquoroso with Italian biscuits to go with it. it was very good.
He also arranged a chef that for price would cook us dinner, we had the chef for the first night and the last night of our stay. The First Night was my wedding anniversary, he even arranged the written menu so we could have a keep sake to remember the occasion by . He was always there if we needed him. he was willing to listen to new ideas and liked engaging in conversation with us to help him improve his understanding of English.
Great place to stay with a large group for easy access to all of the Tuscan towns and cities. House has all of the modern amenities (dishwasher, washing machine, hot tub!). Would definitely recommend to friends.
We had a wonderful holiday here and feel we hit the jack pot!!! Everything was as advertised and more!! The views from the Villa are breathtaking and the people in there surrounding villages are so welcoming. We stayed a week and it was easy access to almost any place we chose to visit. Believe me ,,,,You wont be disappointed!!!
