“Tranquillity in Tuscany”
Reviewed 31 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The welcome awaiting us was just the best; the owner had the home fire burning, plenty of candles adorning the rooms flickering gently on arrival and a home cooked meal that was comparable to a Michelin Starred restaurant.......genuine people wanting to offer the best experience for their guests. The house is splendid, 'vintage Tuscan' I would describe it, with all the comforts that you would need for modern acceptance of good accommodation....I spent my days roaming the grounds and following the cycle track (scoring ahead of challenges on the FitBit) - the grounds and local area are fantastic for hiking or mountain biking. Andrea, the owner was superb with his guidance on the 'how to' get from A to B (we visited Rome, Florence, Sienna, Piza and plenty more places whilst using Villa Carde as our base) and what better way to unwind after visiting the sites than kicking back in the purpose built wellness centre in a bubbling jacuzzi - the steam room was fab too. If you're on the brink of deciding whether to book this, let me take the decision away from you and suggest you just do it - you will not have regrets.

“Tantalising Tuscan Villa... The perfect Christmas getaway!”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I don't even know where to start as the whole experience was so great that I'm even excited to be writing this review! When I booked this beautiful villa I like always was skeptical about it being authentic etc...
Andrea (The Owner) made me feel totally comfortable with the booking process and answered all my questions. He was trustworthy and fair and made everything easy. My Mother wanted to do a couple of wine tours and Andrea booked them in for us. They were beautiful and she really enjoyed them! Prior to arrival Andrea requested our flight info and arrival time to the villa, plus navigation co-ordenates so we didn't get lost. These lead us right to the gate of the villa where we were greeted by Andrea.
We off loaded the luggage and Andrea showed us around the villa and explained how everything worked. While this was going on Andrea's wife Francesca prepared us a beautiful Tuscan meal (we pre-booked for this 40 euros per adult) which was worth every penny! Once we had chosen our rooms we sat down for dinner which was fantastic, 5 courses & very filling toped of with some lovely wine. Andrea & Francesca cleaned up and we all settled in and got ready for bed. Andrea reassured us that he was on hand if we needed anything and left us to it. We had full use of everything, the jacuzzi in the health spa was a real relaxing and the grounds surrounding the villa were breathtaking. If you're looking for space and beautiful scenery then this is the place! You'll be in safe hands with Andrea and his beyond beautiful villa.

“Holiday of a lifetime!”
Reviewed 13 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our week in Villa Carda was absolutely perfect. It lives up to all of the reviews, looks exactly like the photos and is simply wonderful.
We had a group of 12 people for a 50th birthday from all over the world - most of us from New Zealand - and everyone universally loved Villa Carda. The rooms are exquisite, the grounds fabulous, the views and the scenery lovely too.
Andrea is a fabulous host, just a phone call away when we needed him and always helpful.
We had Andrea and Francesca cook for us on two night, we had one Gluten Free (Senza Glutane) and one Vegan in the group and everyone loved! the food, simple Tuscan food yet so amazing.
Our favourite things were the pizza oven, the fruit in the garden, so much to do with golf, the pool, table tennis, spa, sauna, gym or just sitting in the sunshine.
The rooms are all large and provide everyone with their own space and privacy while all collocated at the villa. We walked down for pizza one night and up to Carda to check it out, many of our group ventured to local towns and into Arezzo - but, honestly we were all so taken with the Villa we spent most of our Tuscan week there.
I can't rave enough about Villa Carda, it is a special special place, worth every cent and we will definitely be back!
Thanks Andrea - from the mad kiwi's - Victoria, Steve, Don, Sam, Paul, Karen, Dan, Allie, Dani, Ami, Libby and Christian.

“The ultimate stay”
Reviewed 18 October 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This place is a true gold mine. Villa Carda offers one of the best settings and comfort we have ever experienced and not a day have we regretted choosing this place for our wedding. Located in the beautiful Casentino valley, it is not so crowded by other tourists, which we prefer. And the personal service provided by Andrea and Francesca is outstanding. They really break their back for you, in order to meet your expectations. Reasonable distance to shopping markets too and the beautiful town of Arezzo is just about 20-25 minutes away. We are definately coming back for more stays in the future. We loved the place! /Jenny & Andreas Buzzi-Donato (Sweden)

“Great place for the Dream Wedding”
Reviewed 6 October 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We came as guests to a wedding for a couple from Sweden (with Italian background). The "Tuscany Dream Wedding" became a reality and the atmosphere was wonderful.
The place for us, the guests, was simply stunning. The scenery was amazing and the weather was perfect. The ceremony it self was beautiful there in the garden and the reception in the pool area was also as good as it gets with dancing into the morning light.
The food (arranged by the landlord as I understand) was also terrific.
The days during the week the guests also met for Wine tasting (at Ornina Wine) and other nice gatherings.
We visited also Pisa and the city of Arezzo was a pleasant surprise.
This all made it into a fantastic week for us.
