About the Owner

My family have been booking agents for many properties in the Tuscany and Umbria area for at least the past 20 years. My name is Emma and I live with my husband Martin and two daughters, our dog and our cat in the Niccone Valley. Ca di Bracco is my own house. We have a small rentals agency that was started by my parents in the 80s. We only have a small number of properties, we don't take on everything that is offered to us, all our properties have something that makes them special. We know all the houses we rent very well and the owners are all known to us personally.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We loved La Rondinaia. It is such a special and beautiful house and we enjoyed ourselves immensely. The quiet and solitude is incredible there.

We absolutely loved the house. It was in such a beautiful surrounding. Loved the pool area especially. Thank you so much for the lovely welcome gifts, we really enjoyed those. We shall certainly recommend your website, we were so happy with your service.

We will highly recommend Gorgacce Rentals, La Rondinaia, and La Laconda del Borgo! We had a wonderful time at the villa, none of us wanted it to end. La Rondinaia was gorgeous! We also enjoyed Pietralunga and La Lacondo del Borgo restaurant.

A lovely, relaxing stay in a quiet idyll.

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic week at La Rondinaia. The house is beautiful, large and spacious and very comfortable, the kitchen is amazingly well equipped and the gardens and pool are lovely. The caretakers left a welcome basket of goodies which was a really nice touch. But what sets this property apart is the setting. The views from the house and the garden are amazing and the photos don't really do the place justice. You really feel like you are in the middle of nowhere, you can't see any other houses or hear any noise, it's lovely. It does mean you are quite isolated, the nearest village is a 25 minute drive but there is everything you need there and if you don't plan on doing much then this place is a great place to relax and do nothing. I would certainly recommend this property if you are looking for a quiet, peaceful holiday in a lovely house in the Italian hills.

Beautiful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our holiday here. The villa, pool and gardens are beautiful with stunning views in every direction. There are no close neighbours so our kids enjoyed making plenty of noise in the pool! The rooms are very spacious and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We were also very grateful for the welcome pack as we arrived on a national holiday.

Pietralunga is a short drive and has a decent supermarket, a bakery and some nice restaurants.

I can highly recommend and hope to return one day.
