Elena is the perfect host. Her apartment is wonderful. Peccioli is a magical small Italian village. The apartment is immaculate and the view of the Tuscan countryside from the apartment's terrace is magnificent. Elena met us at her front door and showed my wife and me around the apartment. Elena took us to a beautiful villa where we had an exclusive tour and wine tasting. Elena is very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. We can't wait to return to Peccioli, to Elena's apartment and to see Elena again.

Elena and Giovanni did much more than make me feel welcome - they were outstanding hosts in every way. Their generosity began when they picked us up in Siena then quickly invited us to join an amazing picnic supper of delicious homemade fare created by Anna, a local woman know for her outstanding tradional tuscan cooking. The experience continued to be amazing - with Elena, who speaks excellent, English continuing to provide guidance as to where to shop and what to see. Once my travelling companion headed home and I was on my own- Elena made sure I was included if I felt like it - but she was also very respectful to give me privacy and quiet time in her amazingly beautiful apartment! It is truly a view that takes your breath away. Changing each hour of the day. I cannot begin to thank Elena and Giovanni for all the beautiful memories and for sharing their beloved land with me! I will never forget my time in Peccioli - for its beauty, amazing local food and culture, but mainly for the warmth and generosity of its people! Grazie Mille Elena and Giovanni!!! I will be back!

Miriam you really make me cry now. I learned a lot from you. Especially from your ever smiling face and your deep sense of irony. You teached me that even between thousand of difficulties life can give lovely moments. If it is always possible to meet a friend "like you" that "like me" appreciates just simple things, like a landscape or an hot summer night spent talking with an old painter...

Elena made our stay in Tuscany so authentic that it's just like you always thought it would be from any books or movies you've seen. The Flat is picture perfect, newly renovated and appointment with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The view is awe inspiring from the heights of this once medieval village. I highly recommend staying here for anyone who wants to experience Tuscany for what it is all about.

What a great place to stay in Tuscany! We loved the apartment with it's overwhelming view as well as the wonderful host Elena. Elena was always very helpful and gave us many hints what to do and what to see. The place is ideal to relax after sightseeing the other big places in Tuscany. Elena, thank you very much for your hospitality.

Dear Ina and Jorg first of all I wish to thank you for your kind reply. You are really in my hearth and I hope so much to see you here next year. You can take your bicicles and try to combine your stay in the week of the Coppa Sabatini bycicle race. When the bykers pass from the village center with the whole population of Peccioli gathered below the bell tower in the square or along the streets to cheer all together on the cyclists. That is a such exciting moment that i would like so much to share with you. The Coppa Sabatini is usually run end of September or beginning of October. The next year callender has not yet been fixed but I will let you know as soon as I know, if you wish. Always thinking of your smiling faces thank you. Elena

Dear Sitske, dear Gerd, my earlier public reply was not registered. I can't understand why. I repeat here again what I said from my smartphone. I was particularly happy to guest Gerd and you. To talk quietly on the terrace looking the view and simply cleaning the herbs from our vegetable garden has been really one of the most beautiful experience in my host life. I hope so much to welcome you again here in Peccioli. and will be waiting for you for the next time. Have a wonderful winter. Love Elena

This was our first Airbnb experience and it was a great one. We spent 4 fantastic nights in Elena's beautiful apartment in Peccioli. The apartment has great views of the Tuscan landscape and is only 30 seconds walk from the centre of the town. There are a handful of nice restaurants in the town and a lovely coffee shop/bakery which makes delicious doughnuts, muffins and croissants every day. Elena was a great host, kept in touch before our arrival and gave us lots of tips on places to visit in the surrounding area. When she heard we were planning a day trip to Florence she kindly investigated and printed off train times for us without being asked. Peccioli itself is in a great position and we managed to visit Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Volterra, San Gimingnano and Lajatico during our stay.

The first word that entered my mind when we walked down the strairs to the house was ' Wow!' The view, the calmth, the atmosphere, the host, all great..

Response from Elena:
Simone and Maurice are a very nice and quietful couple. They have appreciated the view from the terrace and the atmosphere in the house, as well as the simple life in Peccioli. I hope they will come back to spend more time here so that they can see more of our beautiful Tuscany. This time they have visited following my suggestion, the theather of silence, tha magnific open place between the fields where Andrea Bocelli, one time per year keeps his concert with international guests from all over the world. this year more than 16.000 people in 2 evenings. Being Simone a singer, I hope next time she will have more time to stay with me and make me listen her voice that I imagine sweet and sensual. About Maurice I think he is the best husband I have never met. He is so kind and sweet and full of attention for Simone that I felt envy. Really hope to see them back.

Tuscany and its landscapes is what I love most. It excites me every day just like it was the first time. Being born in a Tyrrenian sea island, landscapes are for me a reason of life, a need, something that I cannot do without. It is fortunate that I could buy this place - my dream house. These 67 sqmeters, placed at the bottom of a steep staircase, overlook one of the most beautiful and sensual panoramas of the world! The place has been restored for my family, and we are used to spending time there when it is free. We also love sharing it with other people who, like me, recognise in Tuscany and all its amenities "The great Beauty", la vita è bella!
I spend my time trying to tame an escarpment below the house that was abandoned for over 50 years. A jungle of pomegranate trees covered with brambles and vines bordered my garden. This is my "Mission impossible". It's hard to fight nature; she always wins. But we can find compromises. Remove where there is too much, try to enforce some order, and add flowers and colours - then get busy.
In the evening I am pleased to feel tired, and sleep comes very deep. It is nice to rest on the terrace, looking at the horizon, the sky, the thousand shades of green, and listen to the birds or watch them chase each other joyfully. Later before darkness, I wait for a pair of fawns that slowly advance in the scrub vegetation in search of food. Try not to make noise, they could run away!
To read books or finally browse a catalog of art is also something to do on the terrace. In this place for sure you will have a detox from television, because here listening to Puccini opera is much better.
Fresh food and the pursuit of quality nutrition is one of my special interests. I like to share all this with my guests, and often I realise that my guests are like me. Like me, my guests are thrilled by the spectacles of nature. For this reason, very often it creates between us a relationship of sympathy, and a memory to take with them over time.
