    What a beautiful place! Exactly as pictured and described. 20 minutes from Florence so a car is a must.

    Tuscan Paradise

    My family of six adults had a wonderful stay in the Florentine hills. The home was comfortable and relaxing for all of us. The surrounding countryside was stunning, too! David was always available for questions and sent us excellent directions and instructions for our stay. We were even allowed in early as there had been no renters there that morning. Negotiating the roads to get to the villa was an adventure if you're not used to driving in rural Italy, but we had fun! Our housekeeper met us upon arrival and did her best to give us a walk-through despite the language barrier. She also checked on us during our stay to see if we needed anything. We would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a Tuscan getaway!

    Loved our stay

    We loved this villa! It was spacious, clean and provided all essentials. All 7 of us were very comfortable here. We even enjoyed a nice home cooked meal while we were there. The views were spectacular. The owner and the caretaker were very responsive and helpful. We would recommend this beautiful villa to anyone wanting a quiet getaway, but close to Florence and its beauty.

    Excellent Tuscan Vacation

    We rented this lovely Tuscan villa for three weeks. We were two couples who stayed at the villa, along with two additional guests who stopped by for a few days. The villa was just as advertised-a great house with everything you needed for housekeeping, wonderful Tuscan setting with lovely views and plenty of space for everyone. The villa is perfectly located under 30 minutes to Florence and the airport and easy driving distance to all the exquisite villages of Tuscany. David and Dina were always available with advice and assistance. We all truly enjoyed ourselves and all want to spend time at the villa in the future. Just a wonderful vacation setting.

    We had a great time at David`s property, the property is luxurious and spacious., making it a perfect base to explore tuscany for our group of six. The communication with David has been smooth and he went out of his way to ensure our stay is as enjoyable as possible.

    Beautiful Villa up in the hills

    We absolutely loved our stay here in Tuscany. We are a family of 5, children are ages 20, 17 and 14. We selected this property knowing that it would be perfect, and it did not disappoint as it was perfect in every way. There was plenty of room for the 5 of us, the location could not have been better. It was a bit tricky finding the property at first as we were relying on our GPS for directions, once we switched to google maps we had no problem. We drove to the property from Rome and had a beautiful drive through the heart of Tuscany. Stunning scenery, stops at a couple of small villages and a wonderful wine tasting. We also spent time taking day trips to Florence, Greve in Chianti and Montefioralle. The villa was amazing with beautiful views and a gorgeous outside patio. I would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a trip to this area. My only regret was that we didn’t have more time to spend in the house.

    Lovely villa in the Tuscan Hills.

    We enjoyed our stay. Having breakfast on the terrace was the highlight of our time. We were out traveling the region everyday but I could easily have stayed at the villa each day, it was very comfortable and spacious. Once we got our bearings, we felt comfortable driving around. You will need a car as the villa is in the countryside. David was very quick to respond when we found a bee's nest in the patio umbrella.

    Fun in the Tuscan Sun

    Four adults traveling to celebrate a 30th Wedding Anniversary. Enjoyed the property and the fabulous view! Check in was very thorough and personal. Everything was clean, well equipped and easy to use. Appliance we’re very high end but videos were sent to help manage the cooking. Washing machine was a bonus!

    Great find!

    The property is exactly as pictured in the photographs. The bedrooms are very comfortable and spacious, and the downstairs bathroom is well appointed. (The upstairs bath is as well but we did not use it.) Having the bathtub in addition to the shower was a treat and hard to find in most VRBOs in the area. Outside, everything was in bloom and the view is fantastic! David was a pleasure to work with and was very prompt in responding to messages when I had questions or needed suggestions. I will definitely return.
