This villa was spectacular!!!!!!! Every room was decorated beautifully and ad all of the items needed to be comfortable.
Close to several historical landmarks. Rome and Florence about hour away. Close enough to visit major landmarks and have the experience of true Italian hospitality. The views were beautiful from every room, the pool was lovely and the yard had several sitting areas to enjoy the landscaping and views.
Book directly from Francesca. She is wonderful and can give you some really great places to visit. I have already recommended to several of my friends. Will come back again.
This villa is AMAZING!! Beautiful, authentic and very well appointed with great amenities. It is centrally located in Tuscany for easy access to main cities as well ancient and historical towns. The views are gorgeous! But by far the most attractive feature of this home, besides EVERYTHING about it and the grounds, is the wonderful family who runs it. They made sure everything was perfect everyday we were there and were responsive to every inquiry and need. Besides their incredible home, they made our vacation truly special with their personal touch. Thank you Francesca and your parents for a memorable stay. We love you!
We stayed for 10 days at the end of summer with a group of friends (9 adults) from 4 Nations (Germany, France, Switzerland, USA). It was the perfect place to relax and to discover the beautiful Casentino country side.
A car is recommended to visit all the nice villages and towns in the area (Poppi, Strada, Bibienna, Florence, Siena, Arrezo, Pisa etc.)
The villa and the whole property is extremely well maintained. Francesca and her family have a good
feeling for details, so there is not much more to ask for!
The pictures show the real beauty of the estate and the rooms. The kitchen is well equipped and in the garden there is a barbeque-station which we enjoyed to use as well. The villa offers the nice situation of privacy in the rooms on the first floor and the common area on the ground floor with kitchen and dining area with roofed outside sitting area plus lounge room and a great terrace with stunning view into the valley. Thanks to the various sitting areas on the estate and in the garden everybody can find the preferred situation.
During the sunny days we enjoyed the pool and the nice pool area with extra shower, WC and bathroom.
A kitchenette gives the option to have a coffee etc. at the pool without having to go up to the villa kitchen.
The surprise dinner (local specialities prepared by Francescas mother) at the day of our arrival made us feel very welcome! The hospitality of the family Boccalini is overwhelming.
Even tough the villa is located next to the street there is hardly a disturbing noise.
The little village next door, Borgo alla Collina, is a huge benefit since you can do your little daily shopping in the bakery and alimentari. The local bar is the best place for a nice Italian coffee and a dolce.
The people of the village are very friendly and always interested in a little chat.
We enjoyed our stay very much and hope that we can come back in the near future!

This place is truly stunning, we could not have been more happier with the level of service and the villa itself. We will be back and are very sad to be leaving tomorrow. Francesca was so lovely and she had thought of everything and was always at the end of the phone for anything. Book this place, you will NOT be disappointed.
