“Holiday Highlight”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Villa Carda was a holiday highlight. Various members of the group stayed at the Villa because it was so beautiful. The owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and relaxing. From the swimming pool to the wellnes centre to the large property there are lots of things to do. The property is gorgeous with the lemon, orange and cherry trees & the view of the mountains to the east. I can also highly recommend having Francesco & Andrea cook a meal for your group. You will not be disappointed by either the quality or the quantity of the food. Andrea was extremely helpful whenever we asked for his help. I can't recommend this place enough. You will not be disappointed.

“A Holiday to remember”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Villa Carda is just beautiful, the layout is perfect for large groups with space on your own or with the group. The rooms are perfect, spacious and well equipped, beds comfortable and furnishings spot on.
The pool the grounds and the wellness room mean that you don't have to go out if you don't feel like it but if you do Tuscany has so much to offer with its Medieval Villages local food and wine just a perfect holiday.
The host and his wife will also cook a meal which is out of this world and I strongly recommend that you take up this offer, well worth the money.

“Amazing and unforgettable holiday”

After reading all of the reviews on Trip Advisor myself and my family (eight of us in total), decided that Villa Carda would be the destination to celebrate two milestone birthdays. After a 1300 mile trip from Stafford to Castel Focognano we were not disappointed!

Andrea, Antonio and Francesca were a delight and extremely welcoming. The pictures simply do not do the Villa justice and we were all fighting over which rooms to snap up!

You simply have to arrange for Andrea and Francesca to cook you a meal, we did for one of the group's birthday and it was simply fantastic.

Location wise there is plenty to see and do around the Villa. We visited a local winery 'colle Bereto', which is owned by a friend of Andrea's. we had a tour of the winery and a lunch with tasting - lovely.

We visited several of the local historical towns and villages including Cortona, Montepulciano and Anghiari.

The local bakery delivered to us every day which was fantastic. If you call Andrea in the evening or text him, he will place the order for you.

We made use of the pizza oven one night and this was also great.

There are a couple of supermarkets in the local town of Rassina (about 10 mins drive away), we bought groceries here.

The 'wellness' centre is great - we spent almost every morning lazing in the hot tub before breakfast, watching the mist rise and the sun break through over the mountains in the distance.

All in all I would recommend this villa to anyone and everyone, we had a fantastic time and Andrea couldn't do enough for us.

Thanks to them for an extremely pleasant holiday, one which we would not hesitate to repeat.

“Our stay at Villa Carda was magnificent!”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We spent a week at this property and didn't want to leave! The villa is superb, Andrea and has family were a pure delight, and the setting in the hills of Tuscany are like a real life dream come true. I strongly urge you to have them cook for you at least one night. It was a gourmet's paradise. The small villages only minutes away gives you a real feel for Tuscan life. All in all a spectacular trip and our entire group wants to go back and do it again.

“An unforgettable pleasant experience in a gorgeous place with fantastic owners.”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

I spent one fascinating week with my three children + spouses +seven grandchildren, altogether fourteen people of all ages (2.5-70) at Villa Carda. We all enjoyed it. Everything was perfect!!! The villa is beautiful, big , well equipped, every detail regarding the possible needs of the tenants has been thought of, very very clean with the highest level of maintenance. The outdoors are gorgeous, with a huge garden , a jacuzzi pavllion with a well equipped gym, and a heated swimming pool. On top of this heavenly place , the even best part are the owners. Antonio, the founder, his son Andrea who runs the place and his beautiful wife Francesca, who cooked us (together with Andrea) a 5 star dinner. They are are rare combination of kindness and professional efficiency. It has been a unique experience and I am sure that I will return to Villa Carda in the future.
