Sono Andrea. Ho ristrutturato personalmente questa casa che era parte di un ex monastero del Medioevo e l'ho resa incantevole. Per me è molto importante l'ospitalità.

These were great holidays in a wonderful place! The house and the entire premises are very nice, spacious and extremely well-kept. Everything is neat and tidy and exactly corresponds to the description. The appartment is well equipped; we did not miss enything. However, the best thing about the place of course are the hosts, Cinzia and Simona, two extremely kind and caring ladies, who welcomed us on a cool and windy day with a warm fire flickering in the fireplace. They even brought along young and beautiful Giulia, the daughter of one of two ladies, who assisted as translator, so could perfectly understand each other and there were no language barriers. As we were here around Easter, we often imagined how it would be to spend warm summer evenings at the pool or making barbecue with friends beneath the starlit sky... We can highly recommend this place to everyone looking for a quite place wihtin easy reach of all the cultural highlights that Tuscany offers its visitors - from Pisa to Siena and Florence! Thank you for everything!
Picture in your mind all the beauty you have seen on the Tuscany wine country in movies and articles of the region and that is what you get at this house. Add to it a wonderful host and family and you have all you could have hoped for in a Tuscany experience. A baker brought in his breads each morning to the small neighborhood and we enjoyed a breakfast of fresh eggs from our host's chickens and fresh bread before starting our day of touring. At night we made a fires in the living room fireplace and enjoyed wines purchased from area stores and a wonderful winery nearby. Our host and family truly made us feel like part of the family.
Antes de mais, a alegria, acolhimento caloroso e simpatia da Cynthia e da sua colega!
A casa foi de encontro ao que procurávamos: na Toscânia, muito central face a Florença, Pisa, Lucca, região do Chianti e a grande surpresa da bela San Gimignano. Um local muito bonito, no topo das colinas, com uma vista muito ampla sobre a região. Muita pena que esteve frio e não se pode utilizar a piscina, que deve ser excelente no Verão. A casa é ampla e serviu muito bem para a nossa família de 5 (2+3), tipo T2+1. As noites foram frias, mas o aquecimento foi rápido e a casa parece bem isolada (Nota: o aquecimento é pago à parte, no nosso caso pagámos por 4 noites, cerca de 30 euros, o que nos pareceu adequado). De qualquer forma tem uma super-lareira com lenha grátis e que funciona muito bem. Apreciamos muito o pormenor de ter guarda-chuvas à disposição, o que para nós foi bom, pois choveu e não era prático levá-los no avião.
Temos muita vontade de voltar na Primavera/Verão para ver a maravilhosa paisagem com folhas e flores e utilizar a piscina! :)
The house very good !
People often talk about the generosity and care of Italians. Our hosts surpassed every expectations in every way. From the warm welcome with homemade wine and olive oil to their genuine care.
An example - the young son of the friends we were travelling with was ill and had to spend a couple nights at a hospital in Florence. Upon his return the beautiful sisters greeted him with love and Italian pastries. And when he celebrated his 1st birthday a few days later they came with an Italian birthday greeting and a gift.
We visited their cantina with wine and olive oil and they even shared a delicious traditional Toscana meal with us. They really made it hard for us to leave.
The house is a beautifully restored monastery with lots of space and all the necessities, including wood for the fireplace. It is so quiet and the bedrooms get so dark with the shutters that it is hard not to have a perfect night's sleep. The surrounding area is beautiful with views that are probably in calendars of Toscana (rolling hills, olive trees, vineyards - beauty). And sun everyday!
We were at times (beautifully) overwhelmed by the level of kindness and care the hosts shared with us. We all felt in a way that we had travelled back in time to when neighbours really took care of each other.
It is the perfect location if you are in search of tranquility and Toscana views. It is a short (35-40 minutes) to beautiful cities like Sienna, San Gimignano, Florence. The drives are almost more beautiful than the cities.
We can't wait to go back.
We had FANTASTIC time in this apartment villa. The host, Cinzia and Catia were lovely. There were welcoming and friendly. We felt like part of the family. The villa was exactly described in the listing. We were able to make use of the kitchen...it suited our purposes perfectly. The ladies left some Wine and Olive oil which they produce on their farm which was delicious. Our four year old daughter loved the pool, the garden and our visit to their visit. A gorgeous place to stay, lovely hosts and we would highly recommend it.
Amazing house, amazing location. Great people!
A wonderful property in a beautiful setting. Spacious, comfortable with lots of character and all of the modern facilities to provide a superb base for both exploring Tuscany and relaxing in the garden between sightseeing trips. Very welcoming and hospitable hosts who enhance the whole experience and are very generous with the lovely wine they themselves produce from their own vineyards. Definitely the accommodation to return to on next trip to Tuscany.
We have already rented several vacation houses a little bit everywhere but we have never, never, felt so welcome as we did at Agriturismo Giulia. Cinzia, Katia, Andrea, Giulia and Simona have been marvelous hosts, attentive to every comment or need for help we might have had (and we had some). It is also important to highlight that everything worked perfectly, also the "asides" like wi-fi, TV, DVD and appliances. For once, to say that we felt like at home is not just a polite expression, it is the absolute truth.
The appartment was great, we stayed with 4 adults and one 10 year old and there was plenty of space. Amenities were perfect and the place was exceptionally clean. The pool is awesome, cleaned every morning with lots of toys, and the views are spectacular. It is less than one hour drive from Florence or Sienna and there are many trains to Florence if you do not wish to drive. You can tell that the hosts care about the place and the welfare of their guests. Even though we did not speak Italian communication was no problem. We highly recommend this location and hope we can stay here again.
