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.

Our group had a wonderful stay at Matteo's property and very much enjoyed our visit to this beautiful part of Italy. Sitting on the terrace or in the spa with a beer, watching from on high the sun set over the beautiful countryside will be one of the highlights from our European holiday.
Matteo and his family were so kind to us, going out of their way to make us feel welcome, including Franco (Matteo's father, who is a doctor) and Matteo coming to see our 88 year old Mom at 10 o'clock at night (!) due to our concerns for her health after an exhausting day in Sienna. The villa is everything we hoped for -- so spacious and clean, with a view that is absolutely incredible. We spent many days simply enjoying the location, meeting, visiting and re-visiting (!) local shop and cafe owners, etc. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to use when you do want to cook, but of course, there are also many great places to eat in the nearby villages. I will admit that for me, driving up the winding road was at first a challenge, but I can honestly say that we found no other place in our travels that could have given us the privacy, absolute contentment, and beauty that we experienced at this villa, so that every inch of the drive was well worth it. We hope so much to have the opportunity to stay as the Grifoni family's guests again, as we very much consider this our home away from home.
We spent a wonderfull week in Toscany. Mateo's house, surrounded by olive-trees, is ideally located : 10 minutes by car to Montevarchi where you can catch the train to Florence (30 minutes), 1 hour from the marvelous Siena, .... The charming house is spacious, full equiped.
Mateo is a very nice guy who provide kind unformation to help you enjoying a great stay.
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful villa. Mateo and his parents were very warm and welcoming. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone who wants the 'perfect' getaway in the Italian countryside. We were dropped and picked up from the station, and a generous lot of firewood and was left by our doorstep every evening so we could enjoy a cosy fire. The villa offers a panoramic view of undulating hills and is very comfortably organised for short and long stays.
We had an amazing stay at the villa. It was the perfect place to celebrate my husbands' 40th birthday with four of our close friends. The house was cozy and picturesque, perched in the hills of a small Italian town. We were a group of 6 so each couple had their own double bed on their own level of the house, but the villa would be comfortable for a larger group as well; we had alot of room to spare. The kitchen served as a wonderful communal area for us to hang out around the large farmhouse table, when we were not exploring the small towns throughout Tuscany; it was a great home base for day trips. Although it was rainy during our stay, it did not ruin the experience at the house - the setting was truly beautiful and I can only imagine how gorgeous it must be during the summer months by the pool. We loved walking around the beautiful town of Loro Ciuffenna and ate at several local restaurants which were all wonderful. The last night of our stay, we had a delicious 4 course dinner prepared at the villa by a local chef - the food was absolutely amazing and the perfect way to end a our trip. The chef even made a homemade cake for my husband's birthday.
Matteo was an amazing host and so helpful in planning our stay before we even arrived in Italy. He was easily reached and very helpful with anything that we needed, including great suggestions for day trips and restaurants. We can't wait to come back to the villa again in the future!!
We had an amazing experience at Villa Oliveta. The house was beautiful and the view over the tuscan countryside was incredible. The villa is a great place to relax with friends and family, basking in the beauty of the tuscan countryside. Our group also enjoyed visiting a winery in the area and spent a day in Sienna.
Matteo was an excellent host. The Villa was even better than we expected and Matteo was very helpful and quick to respond to all our questions.
