Our stay at Perla and Marcos place was wonderful! They are extremely friendly and helpful. For example, we forgot our credit card so we couldn't get our car at the airport, in the middle of the night Marco picked us up and saved our entire trip. We got a ton of tips about things to do and could ask about anything. Perla and Marco are very familiar, and will make you feel at home. The room was cosy and had everything we needed. The old history of the house and the castle-like feeling are really nice

Staying at Villa Salidini for 5 nights has been the highlight of our 2 week Italian holiday . We stayed upstairs in the Eleanora studio apartment which was very adequate for the three of us, beautifully furnished , comfy beds and linen and magnificent views from large windows across the Tuscan countryside . Some of the many highlights we enjoyed were Perla's pasta cooking class, a delicious home cooked Tuscan dinner , with some of the best traditional Italian food prepared by Perla and served in their lovely outdoor area . We also enjoyed the many recommendations Perla suggested for local restaurants, wineries , historic villages and a must is to visit Fattoria Poggio Alloro. Thank you Perla and Marco for your kindness and making our stay with you such a memorable experience, we hope to come and stay again one day .

I had an amazing experience at Perla's family Villa. It's the perfect Tuscany experience. The location is so close to Florence about 20 min drive. I loved the chianti area more than Florence personally. The apartment was super clean and cosy. It had everything we needed. The villa is surrounded by nature I would enjoy the sunset in the backyard and have a mountain view. Perla was amazing host also showed me her favorite resturants and nice wine tasting in the chianti area. Her cooking also smiles amazing!! I would love to take her lessons if I ever come back again. Highly recommend this place!!!!

Perla and her husband were really nice, we got lost and she went to pick us up. The historic villa is amazing! Breathtaking views from Tuscany, perfect to relax. They gave us a tour from the 500 year old villa, we really enjoy the stay. Perla gave us recommendations for restaurants and things to do and her husband gave us directions how to get to Firenze. Ecerything very nice.

Perla and Marco's villa was perfect for us. We didn't have a car and the bus access was very convenient! The villa was so interesting and historical and the grounds were lovely. Perla cooked us a wonderful dinner and made us feel at home. The apartment was just as the photos showed it and we could have been comfortable there for several days. Only 20 min ride into Florence and the views of Tuscany are beautiful!

Perla's place is beautiful. The pictures portray it exactly as it is: a gorgeous room with an unbelievable view. I had trouble believing it was real when I looked out the window. As hosts, they were similarly incredible. Perla was very kind and responsive and Marco was a full on hero, helping us get into our room after we had been locked out. I would stay there again in a heartbeat if I had another ticket to Italy.
