“Excellent accommodation & location”
Reviewed 14 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

This is an excellent find in Tuscany.

Location: Close to Cortona town, a drive away from Siena, Montepulciano and other smaller villages, this is away from the noise, yet close enough.

Accommodation: A brilliant villa for 3 families. The house has 3 fully functioning kitchens, each with a dishwasher so you can maintain separate meals yet, eat together if you want. It has a BBQ area which is lovely with a gazebo. The rooms come equipped with single and double beds. One thing we felt was the double beds were actually single beds wedged together so it was a bit uncomfortable at night. All rooms (including living area) come equipped with air conditioning, which is a great blessing as we came during the heatwave and cooling was much needed. There is a laundromat in the basement and a parking outside. Would have been great if there was a cover to the parking - again heatwave was there during our time and there are no large shady trees to park under.

Poolside: This is probably the best and most fun part of the villa as the lovely pool overlooks the beautiful countryside.

Host: Anita is a lovely hands on host. She lives next door and is available promptly. One evening the wi-fi was not working, she had promptly arranged for an alternative hotspot.

Tips: The villa does not come equipped with any food - not even salt, sugar, oil. We had to buy everything at the store upon arrival including garbage bags, detergent, handwash, bodywash - everything. If you can bring these basic things in advance with you would be better.

“Spacey and modern holiday villa”
Reviewed 4 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We spent a truly wonderful week in this large and well-equipped villa with our 4 kids. The villa is in fact suitable for 2-3 families or a large groups as it has been divided in several compartments with separate kitchens / bathrooms.

Before our arrival we had many plans to visit in the numerous attractions nearby (like Cortona, Arezzo, Siena, San Gimignano, Valdichiana Outlet Village) but finally enjoyed most of the time in this comfortable villa, just swimming / playing by the large pool and cooking Italian dishes on our own. The view from the garden is very beautiful overlooking the Tuscan valleys and hills, and so enjoying a dinner on the patio outside is a real pleasure. The lovely owners Anita and Luigi live in the neighboring house and are available and willing to help if you have anything in mind.

Before our arrival we were a little bit concerned about the closeness of the railway and the highway, but we could hear hardly any noise in the garden. Instead, I would see the road connections a clear asset of this villa. In more remote locations you may have to drive quite a while until you get to your destination.

You also do not have to be concerned about the small amount of reviews on this villa. I believe this is simply because the house is newly built and so many people have not yet had a chance to visit here.
