This villa is great for large families, groups of friends, anyone who wants to combine exploring the vineyards and art cities with quiet days lounging by the pool, wine connoisseurs and foodies (because of the well equipped kitchen)

we had a wonderful vacation & your assistance arranging activities was invaluable. Everyone that we met in the Chianti area was friendly & added greatly to our enjoyment of Italy on this trip! Thank you so much for working with us to ensure a vacation success!! I guess we will just have to plan another visit! :-)
The villa was exactly as described on the website and we loved staying. The furniture & decoration was great, exactly what we'd expect at a Tuscan Villa and the we loved browsing the books and pamphlets about the area and the fiction that was on the bookshelves (I love when vacation houses have books on the shelves, I have found some of my favorite books that way). The location was convenient for exploring the area & the amenities were great - The pool chairs in particular got a lot of use - it was great to lounge in the sun during any downtime!! I'm sure the other outdoor areas would have been great if we had come later in the season - still a little to cool in May for outdoor dining, of course.
Chef Mimmo made fabulous meals and the convenience of having the chef come to us so we could fully enjoy the villa was great. He went out of his way to make special dishes that the group was hoping to try during our vacation and let us stand around in the kitchen watching the process.
Simone not only drove us around & made sure the wine tasting trip was safe & stress-free, he also provided additional information about the area that made the days we explored on our own more rewarding. We definitely missed him while we were looking for parking in Florence!!
Chef Mattia's cooking class was informative and the Chef kept us entertained & laughing throughout the class - lunch at the restaurant was one of the best meals we ate out during the trip, yum!
Chef Barbara was great, friendly & patient - a great teacher. The level of hands-on training provided was a great addition to the other activities and the group definitely came home with some new recipes and techniques to try at home!
Everyone spoke phenomenal English, we almost forgot that we were in a country where we don't speak the language.
We had an amazing vacation, Thank You!!

We had a fantastic vacation in Chianti. The house was just perfect for our two families sharing, and was very child friendly. The information on your website about the property was accurate - but of course the photos can't do the place justice and it was better in real life! The location was great - we really loved being tucked away in the hills surrounded by vineyards and views over the valley, but within easy driving distance of many wonderful towns, like Panzano and Greve. The house itself was charming and tastefully decorated in authentic Tuscan style. The house was very clean on arrival and was well kitted out. The beautiful pool and the lovely gardens were immaculately maintained. The kids made good use of the flat grassed area beside the pool for games of soccer, and were very excited to discover the little orchard tucked away at the bottom of the garden! Us adults appreciated the fact that we could keep an eye on the kids in the pool from a variety of areas, including the kitchen, the loggia and the outside dining table. The barbeque and the wood fired pizza oven both got a good work out and we made the most of the great weather and dined al fresco most evenings- just great! We enjoyed the extra activities you organised for us, notably the meal prepared by Arianna in the house on the first evening, and the pasta-making lesson for the children by Chef Barbara. Your service prior to our arrival was excellent! We appreciated the detailed notes you sent us regarding directions to the property, local attractions and good restaurants. And thank-you for your prompt responses to our many questions and requests, ranging from property selection to restaurant bookings and places to buy pool toys! Our only regret is that we didn't book the house for 2 weeks! We have already recommended you to a friend and will certainly do so again. In fact, we may be interested in renting the house again next year...will get back to you when we can pin the family down to some dates! Thanks again and all the very best!
