We are a family from NYC -2 adults and 2 kids( 3 and 5 y.o.) stayed in the villa for 2 weeks and didn't want to leave as it was an absolutely beautiful Tuscan life experience. Monica was very thoughtful and hospitable. It was very nice of her to do a grocery shopping for us before our arrival and leave a welcome gift with Tuscan delicacies. She gave us great recommendations about restaurants and food shopping We loved the garden with olive trees, apples, pears. And it was especially charming to pick up fresh figs and plums straight from the trees for the breakfast! Our kids were happy to explore the garden and play with insects. There were times when we didn't see our explorers for hours as they were buzy catching butterflies and tiny lizards. A good size swimming pool was always clean and taken care of by Johnny every early morning when we were asleep. His daughter Elena is a young girl who takes care of the house was very nice and we even asked her to babysit our kids one day. Comfortable beds with spotlessly clean bed linen and towels. Great location too, within reach of all beautiful towns of Tuscany. If you are looking for a peaceful relaxing and first hand experience in Tuscany I would recommend this place! Thank you dear Monica!!! It's definitely going to be one of our brightest memories!!!

At Sarchianello you will be always welcome!

The week at Sarchianello were the best holidays, each of us ever had! When we arrived, we could first not believe how beautiful a place can be. As many others have already written - it is even more beautiful than on the pictures. And it is huge - even in a quite big group of young people, as we were, you have more than enough space and comfort in this charming house! Furthermore I really want to thank Monica and her team one more time - thank you to take so much care of us, when we needed it - I've never felt so welcome at someones place before! You do a very great job! I couldn't recommend it more! Tank you and see you next time :)

We (4 adults and 3 kids) had a perfect week at Monicas "Sarchianello". From the first welcome to the last goodbye everything was excellent. The villa has many lovely details and the property is perfectly maintained. If you are looking for a relaxing and inspiring stay in a beautiful environment in the heart of the Tuscany, I guess this place will completely match your expectations. Thank you so much Monica for providing your property and your caring attitude and also special thanks to the great "caretaking team" with Elena, her father & family.

We really loved our stay here! The location is fantastic smack on top of a hill with fabulous views of the beautiful, rolling Tuscan countryside. It is completely private and secluded with only a farm on a hilltop to be seen in the distance. There is a patch of shrubs, tall cypresses and trees concealing the road on the hillside below. The well-kept large garden is wonderful with open lawns, a huge assortment of fruit trees and many beautiful flowers. The good-sized (6x12m) pool has crystal clear blue water and was cleaned by a caretaker every morning before we woke up. Wonderful! There is such a serene and peaceful feeling that you can truly relax here. We hiked across the fields and hills without running into anybody. The house itself is ok with that feeling and smell that all old stone buildings have. It is cluttered with objects, decorations, books and utensils, but that is just part of the charm. The kitchen is a bit small with little workspace, partly due to a wild assortment of tableware and kitchen utensils. The house was well stocked with everything you need from towels and soap to spices and oils. The host and caretakers were very friendly and helpful. Thank you!

I spend a Great New Year Holiday in Monica's Podere!! It was six of us friend and family and we all had great space and wonderfull time. The house is situated on top of a hill with 270 degrees clear views of the stunning surrounding hills, most of the time we pass on the terrace watching the great natural paintings that toscany was offering us. Also the location is great because is right in the middle between Siena and lots of interesting small town to visit like Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano. The interior of the house is exacly like in the pictures and I particulary enjoy the great collection of intersting books near the fireplace, the kitchen also is a lovely space and has all you need to prepare dinners for lots of people. It was winter so we didn't enjoy the pool but the exterior barbeque was great and since it wasn't too cold we use it almost every night. Monica was a great host! even if she wasn't able to meet us she was always available to any questions or request. A friend of Monica meet us at the house and showed us around and supported us daily during the stay with any needs and advice. I can't wait for summer so we can come back and try the pool

Myself and my family went to stay at Monica's villa for one week. Monica was away but we were met by a friend of Monica's who met us at the house when we arrived and responded promptly to any communication. The villa is in a beautiful spot in the Tuscan countryside, remote, rustic and authentic, with a big pool that the kids loved and kept them busy and happy most days! Quite a distance from Florence, Pisa and Siena but the roads are quiet and nice to drive in this part of Italy. A lovely place for a romantic getaway or a place for the whole family, like we did, with no close neighbours around (what joy!) just Tuscan hills, panoramic views, pink skies at night and peacefulness. Thanks Monica
