About the Owner

My wife, Italian and Latin Literature Teacher, and I, industrial manager, after retirement, have decided to rent our property, too big for us, as our sons, now more than adults, live not more with us.

Currently we live in Florence.

Sorry we didn’t get to see you before we left your fabulous home, but I just wanted to thanks you for the wonderful accommodations in the hills of Tuscany! We all had a wonderful time, and very much enjoyed meeting you and Paola.



With luck we can return and see you again!

Perfect family holiday rental

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and tidy house. Extremely spacious with plenty of seats both inside and out. Grounds were well kept. Everything we needed to ensure our family holiday in Tuscany was relaxing and comfortable. Owner was very helpful and available for any queries. Highly recommended for its stunning position- easy access to Pisa , Florence , Siena , Lucca and only an hour from coast. A holiday we won't forget.

A wonderful week in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the villa with three adults and three children ages 13 and 10 and loved it!!

The villa was great, nicely off the beaten path yet close to everything (florence, Siena, Pisa) .Traveling to and from the villa has easy and adventurous , the roads are narrow.

The villa was in very good condition, clean with everything we needed to make are stay confortable and experience the Tuscany country side . The pool was a added treat after a day for walking the streets of Tuscany, as it was in the 90's. Your hosts are lovely and willing to help with great restaurants suggests, directions and history of the area.

Great experience overall and hope to be back some day!!

A lovely place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The villa was as described, all five bedrooms were a good size, and there were plenty of indoor and outdoor living areas. There were 9 of us including a toddler, and we fitted very comfortably into the villa. The weather was warm and we ate all our meals at the table on the patio which is just off the kitchen. There was a gate which meant the toddler was secure in this outdoor area, away from the pool. We enjoyed the space of the large garden, as well as the various activities available - badminton, table tennis, and gym equipment. Silvio and his wife were very welcoming and attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our week here and hope to return some time.
