  • Great place to stay and beautiful scenery over Tuscany countryside. The apartment was clean, comfortable with a kitchen and lounge area. Our apartment was only a few steps to the swimming pool area that overlooks the hills of Tuscany. Susanna and Georgio made us feel welcome at their accomodation. I would not miss Susanna's homemade (URL HIDDEN) is worth every cent! And you get a real taste of authentic Italian food. Georgio was lovely showing us around, looking at a monastry and some of the chianti vineyards. We had a few bottles of his wine from his vineyard. The wine was divine :). Overall, my partner and I had a brilliant and relaxing stay here. Definitely would love to visit again! It is advisable to rent a car to get around. However, you can catch a bus from Florence to Tavarnelle and it is 2km to Noce.

  • This is such a beautiful place. Susanna and her family make you feel warm and welcome. The room is large and very comfortable and very clean. The surroundings are scenic and the garden was in full bloom. This was our first trip to Tuscany and we completely fell in love with the place, the people, the food and the wine! Noce is relatively easy to find and very well-positioned. It is a short drive to Florence. We drove around to many small villages in the area and each one is lovely.

  • Lovely property in a great location, with beautiful countryside surrounds. Susanna and her family were very nice and helpful, we had a great stay.

  • Apartment in country. Need vehicle due to isolation. Apartment is very basic, otherwise clean and comfortable. The surrounding area is great to visit. Did not have a chance to use the pool. I would recommend this facility.

  • susanna and georges were very nice and accomodating. there was a bit of a mis understanding about the breakfast. i didn't know there would be a charge for that. there was also a matter of a tax that was added at the end of the stay which was also a surprise. the rooms were very nice and the place was very charming

    tim2014-04-22T00:00:00Z
  • Susanna's place could have been a nice place to stay, however the experience went from mediocre to terrible by the end of our time there. First, the internet continually cuts out, so if you need to do any work, as we did, it is not a reliable connection. The room is not so private, as it is an extension of Susanna's house. It is only separated by a hallway. As my girlfriend and I are sitting down for dinner together, Susanna and her daughter proceed to have a screaming argument next door. So much for a romantic meal. As we were there in November, it was quite cold. Yet, Susanna controlled our heat and after three days we had to practically beg to have the heat turned on. The night before we left, she informs us that heat is extra and now we owe her more money. The total she came up with was completely unfounded. She acted as if we had heat everyday and tried to charge us an outrageous fee. When we refused to pay her exaggerated charges as we were leaving, she threatened us with calling the police and ran after us to take the license plate number. The place is in a good location but WATCH OUT. She kept telling us, "This is her business." Definitely would recommend staying somewhere else.

  • The experience at Silvia's was fabulous. The home is beautiful and well equipped. Looks just like the pictures. We stopped at the coop and bought cheese, meat , pesto and bread and ate on the patio a few times. Silvia welcomed us with a gift of wine. We also purchased several bottles from her. It was both inexpensive and delicious. We arrived earlier than expected and she accommodated us. One of the kids got sick during the night and she came over in the morning to help us. She is very caring. Would love to return to her place. I highly recommend staying with Silvia.

    Kristin2016-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed only four days at Le Quercioline and we regret not having stayed longer. The location is privileged to visit most of the Tuscan highlights and Our host Silvia was extremely helpful. I would definitely recommend to stay here for at least a week to properly enjoy the Tuscan lifestyle.

    Patricia2017-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Silvia's place was so beautiful, clean, traditional and in the same time comfortable and with modern facilities. The vue is incredible. It's quiet, you hear the birds singing in the morning and in the same time you are in the middle of everything yuo should visit and enjoy in Toscana. We were two couples of friends and we could be together having our privacy too. Highly recomended. Sylvia and her husband were very kind and took care that everything is ok. Thank you so much Sylvia and hope to meet again sometime!

    Liviu2017-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • This villa in Tuscany is perfectly situated close to so many places to visit, close to a supermarket and vineyards. Silvia was a great hostess and gave us lots of recommendations. We wished we had more time to stay. Until next time...we will always remember the wonderful sunrises and sunsets.

  • Staying at Adriano's place was a really great experience. The house is spacious, clean and has everything what is needed. The location is good if you want to explore Tuscany, half way between Siena and Florence. Adriano is very kind and we had very warm welcome with fruits, essentials for breakfast and wine. All in all, highly recommended.

    Nevena2017-04-16T00:00:00Z
  • Adriano is a perfect host. He responds to messages in timely manner. He is polite and precise with directions. Place is clean and roomy and feels like my home for few days we were there. Area around the home is scenic and calm. After staying here we felt recharged and full of energy to go on our next trip. Highly recommend and would stay again if in the area.

    Yura2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • We were warmly welcomed to this beautiful home. Adri is a thoughtful and genial host and the location of the accommodation and the village of Barberino is superb. Friendly neighbours and villagers and good restaurants within walking distance. Highly recommmended!

    Gillian2016-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • Adriano is the most generous host we ever met. We feel very welcome when we arrived there, and it was very late night, so he prepared a lot of food for us, we were very surprised and happy! Our kids loved to play billiyard on the living room. Also the neighbours were nice and even we cannot speak Italian, our kids played together with them. 1 minute walk you can find a small supermarket, and 10 minutes you can go to the central of the town. Nice play grounds around there, and also nice restaurants. The view from the bedrooms and the living room was fantastic. Hope someday we can come back again. Hightly recommended!

    Yukari2017-06-29T00:00:00Z
  • La casa, arredata con molto gusto, era spettacolare, con vista sulle colline circostanti, un salone accogliente e una verandina comoda per mangiare. Zona tranquilla, appena al di fuori del bellissimo borghetto di Barberino Val D'Elsa. Adriano è un host esemplare, simpatico e disponibile, e completa il quadro di una esperienza davvero indimenticabile. Assolutamente da ripetere!

    Gianluca2017-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Maison très bien située et propre. Parfait pour une famille. Le Bourg de Barberino est à quelques minutes de marche, nous y avons pris un excellent repas avec une vue imprenable sur le paysage. Adriano est un hôte exceptionnel !

    Sophie2017-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Wir haben die ganze letzte Woche in Adrianos Wohnung verbracht und die Unterkunft sehr genossen. Die Wohnung ist sehr geräumig, gut eingerichtet, sehr ruhig; sie bietet alles, was man für einen angenehmen Ferienaufenthalt benötigt. Die Lage im Herzen der Toskana ist ideal geeignet für attraktive Ausflüge in die Umgebung. Adriano ist ein äusserst netter, zuverlässiger Gastgeber. Wir können die Unterkunft vorbehaltlos empfehlen.

  • This is an absolutely unique place in an old castle with lots of history. The place was comfortable and clean. The views were amazing. We felt very welcome. The people were friendly and very willing to help. We enjoyed the garden and the place to sit outside and have breakfast in the quiet surroundings. SUPER!!! The only thing that really bothered us was the very poor internet. Sometimes for hours and hours no connection. I am sure the host will soon get this fixed for future guests. We certainly would like to recommend this place!

    Alexander2016-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • We truly thought Tignano Castle was THE gem of Tuscany, we enjoyed our stay there so much. The apartment was very easy to find by car with signs for Tignano Castle all the way from the highway exit for Tavernelle. It is a short 30-35min drive from downtown Florence. Driving up through the little town of Tignano, we were blown away by its beauty. Once we arrived at the Castle, we rang the bell and Roberta's daughter Rebecca greeted us and showed us to the room. There was some fresh bread, preserves, milk and some other small items waiting for us when we were in the room. the room was very clean, and had a lot of space to relax in, it was perfect. Rebecca spoke English well enough to get good directions, restaurant recommendations, and where to get a snack and some groceries. Rebecca provided a traditional Italian breakfast for us every morning which was a perfect way to get the day started. The room also has a private garden with an amazing view, and a small front patio both great for enjoying a glass of local wine and cold plates. The location of Tignano was just was we needed, close to many other small towns, vineyards and other castles to visit in the Tuscany region of Chianti. our favorite places we visited was Poggi Rozzi farm, La Toppa restaurant, San'Appiano, and Barone Castle

    Paul2014-05-01T00:00:00Z
  • If you want to escape to the Tuscan country side look no further. This quaint apartment is set within Tignano Castle with sweeping views accross the rural area. Whilst a little dated, it has a fully equipped kitchen, generous bathroom and large bedroom with distant views. Roberta met us on arrival and made sure we were comfortable, even leaving us with a plate of home cooked biscuits. The fridge was stocked with milk and yogurt for a basic breakfast. We found this an excellent location for day trips to Sienna, Firenze and Pisa, all within an hours drive. We would not hesitate to recommend Tignano Castle to anyone looking for their Tuscan escape. Thank you Roberta, Rebecca and Frederick. Ciao Mark and Jo

    Mark2014-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Roberta , her daughter and son were so kind,& warm & very helpful to us. It was really GREAT during our stay ! The house was very clean and tidy. We'll never forget their servising our breakfast tray with (URL HIDDEN) a family they are all tasteful. They are so kind to offer me their 2 little coffe cups which I loved very much - are already taken the best places in my coffe cups collection.. I certainly wish to stay once more....:)

    Feride2013-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I had an absolutely amazing stay in Tignano's Castle. It was the perfect amount of space for us and all the amenities you would need for a very comfortable stay. The nearest town is about a 5 minute drive away so you would definitely need to hire a car to stay here and to enjoy all of the divine villages and countryside on offer. Truly sensational ! We even extended our stay by 3 nights as we didn't want to leave. Roberta was a very charming and lovely host who was always available to help us with any queries, however her English wasn't great but her daughter Rebecca was always able to answer any questions if Roberta couldn't. The only small problem was the data on the wi fi kept running out but We would definitely stay here again. Very romantic and beautiful accommodation.

    Sally2014-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful, clean apartment in amazing location! Contact with the host was nice and uncomplicated. A little drawback was that the temperature in the apartment was a little cold - we loved the wood stove but didn't really manage to heat the whole apartment. Anyway, during the hot summer the temperature inside will be a big plus for sure! :-) We loved our stay and can recommend this beautiful & romantic place, if you have a car (large parking space available)! Thanks, Roberta!

    Julia2015-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Roberta and Rebecca were amazing hosts! They made everything that was possible to help us during our trip. We had a feel problems and Rebecca were right there in our door. The place is very clean and matches the description. If you want a real Tuscan experience this place it's an awesome choice. Important to point out a minor problem we had with old installations of the castle. While using washing machine we had to turn off the boiler and the oven or the electricity kept turning off. You can't park the car right in front of your apartment if you are going in a raining season that can be a bummer. We went in May so this wasn't such a problem. Hope the feedback help you guys!

    Jin2016-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • We had the loveliest romantic New Year's at Robertas place. The apartment is very beautiful, it felt a little bit like stepping into a dream. Roberta and her charming daughter Rebecca provided us with everything we needed to know, helped us with our restaurant reservation and useful information and made us feel very welcome. When we arrived there was a cake and a bottle of wine waiting for us at the kitchen table. Everything was spotlessly clean. We can definitely recommend this apartment, it is perfect for a couple or a young family. We would love to come back one day to this wonderful place in the middle of a stunning landscape.

  • Our stay at Emanuela's house was absolutely amazing!  The house looks even better than the photos and there is everything you need. The pool and yard area is maintained on the highest level and the house is very very clean and comfortable. One of the best beds I've ever slept on! Emanuela, her husband and their  son Francesco were the best hosts! From the moment we arrived they were so welcoming and nice, explained everything and because we arrived late they prepared for us platters with cheeses and meats, including wine which was the greatest gesture. We stayed 4 nights, had all the privacy we needed and everything was just wonderful! Thank you so much Emanuela,  we will definitely come here again!

    Omer2016-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • My family and I stayed for 4 days. Fantastic hosts. Highly recommended.

    Simon2017-06-13T00:00:00Z
  • A truly hidden gem! Situated on top of the hill at a dead end road with amazing vistas on the countryside around. Beautifully restored Tuscan house. Bright and beautifully decorated rooms. Great beds. Amazing swimming pool. Netflix... I could go on and on like this. Emanuela and her son made us very feel welcome and at home right away. They had prepared some great antipasti with a bottle of chianti. In the kitchen they provided everything for breakfast the next morning so we could start enjoying our vacation right away. We had the most wonderful stay. Thank you Emanuela!

    Tinneke2017-07-08T00:00:00Z
  • Emanuela and Francesco would have to be the most sincere, inviting, generous hosts that we have come across in our travels around Italy. I cannot say enough about our experience staying at their home. We were really made to feel like family to the point I felt sad leaving. Their home is a beautiful stone house, immaculately clean and tastefully furnished. The pool is unbelievably big with a backdrop of breathtaking views of Toscana. It is an experience that I will never forget! Thank you Emanuela and Francesco, hope to meet again.

    Denise2016-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful house in a beautiful setting! Emanuela and her son Franscesco were great hosts too - very thoughtful and kind. 10 out of 10!

    Nicola 2017-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed here the last 4 nights of our 10 day vacation. There were 3 couples and we all loved it. Highly recommended staying here if you want beautiful scenery, downtime, relaxation. Also close enough to wineries, restaurants, Sienna and Florence.

    Lesley2017-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Emanuela and her family have created a beautiful home ... Gorgeous furnishings, beautiful art, great beds and stylish bathrooms. And the pool is something else ... It's like being in a dream swimming in the enormous infinity pool looking out to the changing colors of the Tuscan sunset. They share this home with strangers, and welcomed us like family ... So warm and showing us every detail of the property with great care before bringing us a delicious bounty of welcome platters ... More than enough for dinner that night. The book in the house has lots of helpful details and suggestions about local restaurants and shops, and tourist highlights, and even how to use your choice of two coffee machines (as a Moka user at home, it was no contest for me). (The local restaurant at the end of the road is surprisingly good and well worth a lunch or dinner. It is also worth going the extra distance to the Coop in Tavernelle, which is much bigger and with much more variety than the local one in Barbarina Val D'Elsa, which is fine but tiny.) There is excellent wifi at the house (and even emergency wifi!), and FOUR TVs, with Netflix and all sorts of other channels. We enjoyed relaxing with a family movie at night. We had a magical five days here and are already talking about returning. If you are looking for a private, luxurious home in Tuscany, which is close to so many of the sightseeing favorites, you have found it here. Say ciao to Emanuela and Francesco from us!

    Jane2017-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • Emanuela and her family made us feel very welcome from the day we arrived, communicating with us constantly and helping us out with everything we needed. Her son Giovanni was also extremely friendly and helpful with trips in the area. The house was beyond our expectations - beautiful, well-equipped, tastefully decorated, sparkling clean and most comfortable. The quiet atmosphere and lovely Tuscan view, with rolling hills and vines, was a pleasure to experience. We had a lovely vacation and recommend this place highly!

  • If you're looking for a spotless, quiet, quaint and friendly location, look no further. Lucia and Andreas were lovely people and very helpful. They are located in rural Tuscany but a short drive to Florence and Siena. Do yourself a favour and book here!

    Donna2017-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • I made the reservation for my friend and, according to my friend, it was a great experience for them. Andrea is so thoughtful ever since from the booking process till to the arrangements for the rooms and, her amazing breakfast in particular, made their whole trip a unforgettable experience... She even provided them a very good Tuscany welcome wine for their arrival... Do not hesitate to choose Andrea if you ever stop by. Looking forward to see you soon Andrea.. Thank you very much indeed for everything.

  • Our stay with Andrea and Luccia in Chianti was one of the absolute highlights of our trip to Italy! They were very quick to respond to all questions and requests and were the epitome of hospitable. Upon our booking, Luccia emailed and asked if we would like for her to make dinner for us. Having eaten at restaurants for every meal for a week, we were elated at the opportunity. We thought it would be cool to have an authentic Italian meal. But we were treated to one of the best meals and experiences of our lives. The food was only topped by their warmness and willingness to accommodate. After a week of travel, we were in need of a laundromat, but Luccia allowed us to do laundry at her house and air dry our clothes on their patio. Their home is beautiful and is located in the hills of Chianti with amazing views. Luccia met us at the train station in Florence and drove us to the B&B. I would easily return to stay with them without question. The only potential concerns to consider are the fact that it is a smoking household and they do have dogs that bark at times. The smoke did not bother us upstairs in our rooms with the door closed, and the dogs were very friendly and stayed outside. To me, they were a welcomed treat, as I missed my buddy at home. If you are looking for an amazing, authentic Italian experience, this is the B&B for you!! Thank you so much Andrea and Luccia; we will always remember our trip to Italy and time with you and Pasha and Luna!

  • We have spent 2 wonderful days at Lucia's place. Everything was perefect! Lucia has an elegant taste and rooms look exaclty like on photos, even better. Every day Lucia made for us delicious breakfast from the fresh food products and i cant describe how good it was! She and her husband Andrea have 3 super cute dogs: big one, medium sized and a small one) Andrea and Lucia made for us reservations in the best restaurants, and one of them was literally the best in my life) Lucia also took us to the organic farm with horses and showed us cheese factory where we could try and buy some fresh ricotta and pecorino) This place atmosphere is so kind and relaxing, it feels like you're visiting your family) I strongly recommend this villa for staying in Tuscany! Defenitely will come back to spend more time with Lucia and Andrea! Thank you very much!)

  • We stayed at Lucia's for two nights and had the best time at her lovely home! Everything was perfect -- from the beautiful decor to the amazing food! Lucia made us a delicious breakfast both mornings and we were lucky to have an authentic Italian meal with her and her lovely neighbors. She booked us a reservation at the best restaurant we have ever been to! When staying with Lucia, you will feel like you are staying with family. We definitely recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Tuscany! Thank you Lucia and Andrea!

  • For our first Airbnb experience, this exceeded all expectations. Andrea and Lucia welcomed us with lunch and wine. They treated us like their personal house guests. The breakfasts were superb. We didn't have an intinerary, so they gave us excellent recommendations and helped us made reservations. The best hosts. And the cutest house with the most spectacular view. Exactly the Tuscan feel we were looking for.

    Emily 2015-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea made us feel SO welcome in his Tuscan home. We had a true Tuscan experience at their B&B. Our stop in Tuscany would not have been the same without staying in their lovely home, having dinner with them and departing with a delicious breakfast. One of the most memorable stops on our Honeymoon! We can't recommend them enough and next time we are in the area, we will absolutely stay again!

    Marissa2015-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • This was hands down, the best experience have ever had with an air bnb. Andrea and Lucia were such amazing hosts that no review can do them justice. The home was beautiful, clean and cozy. We were blown away by the decorations and how well thought out it was. The views were fantastic and I don't think I have ever woken up so relaxed. Breakfast was delicious, and for a bit extra, Lucia was happy to cook a full Italian dinner for us. It is no exageration when I say that this was the best meal I had in Italy. There company was wonderful, as we're there two beautiful dogs Pacha and Luna. They set up a tasting for us at a small vinyard just outside of town and we're full of recommendations on seeing the area. I would try to arrive with some daylight, as the location can be a little bit tricky to find, but they will be happy to help you if you get lost. I could not reccomend this enough.

  • Beautiful villa with pool and courtyard terrace. Much better than photos and we had a great time. Some basic provisions on arrival was greatly appreciated and Giulia was a lovely host. You would need a car as it's not walking distance to restaurants or shops. The local town is fine but not special. Saying that, there are plenty of places to eat in the area. The villa is so nice you almost don't want to leave - ideal for family or group just wanting to relax by the pool and take in the view.

    Harriet2015-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Nice villa near to Florence & Siena. Great views. Lovely pool but too cold to use much in Sept. Hosts very pleasant.

    Ed2017-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • This Villa is absolutely stunning. Everything is high end and comfortable. Giulia and her husband Micheal are fantastic hosts, they are always willing to suggest restaurants and places to visit. They both work in the food and wine industry and recommended some fantastic restaurants. If you want all the comforts of home but with a Tuscan twist this is the place for you. Thank you Giulia and Michael I hope to visit again soon.

  • Perfect in every way imaginable. Well-exceeded our expectations. Amazing views of the Tuscan landscape and well-situated, making it easy to travel to the various city's and locales around you, including Siena, Florence and Chianti. Well worth the stay and only wish we had a few more days to spend there ourselves!

    Tara2017-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Podere Guidi is the perfect villa to experience the Tuscany region. From the moment we arrived we were greeted with warm smiles and a spectacular view of the Chianti countryside. The villa is situated in the tranquil countryside near Tavernelle; about 1/2 hour to Florence, Siena and our favorite city San Gimingano. The pictures on the listing, although professionally displayed do not capture how remarkable this villa truly is. The villa was presented clean, tidy and well equipped with all of the necessities. The welcome package was especially appreciated after a long drive from Germany. It was fun just sitting and relaxing on the huge terrace sipping some wine while the kids were enjoying themselves in the pool overlooking the countryside. The information binder provided was helpful in planning out our daily excursions and dinner options. We will for sure tour the vineyards mentioned in our next visit to Tuscany. Giulia and her family were perfect hosts, addressing all of our questions in a timely fashion through our correspondence. As far as I am concerned, my search is over for the perfect place to stay in Tuscany. The villa was very clean, spacious, the beds were very comfortable and Giulia (along with her parents) were exceptional hosts. Hope to see you soon! Thanks for a truly memorable experience Joe and Family

  • It was a true pleasure being guests in Giulia apartment. Giulia and her family were the perfect landlords. Everything was as expected or above! The location was perfect between Siena and Firenze in the middle of the beautiful Chianti Classico area. The outdoor area including the view and the swimming pool was perfect and our children loved it:-)

  • It was our first time in Tuscany. Sonia's place made this stay even more enjoyable. The place was spacious with a touch of Tuscan charm. The swimming pool and the beautiful view, a place to relax. Sonia made sure that everything went smoothly from our arrival to the day we left with her smile and kindness. The village is super well located between Firenze and Sienna. Within 5 days we covered several cities up to Pisa, Lucca, San Giaminino, and had 2 amazing days touring wine estates in Chianti Classico and Bolgheri. A super stay.

Inoltre l'appartamento si trova in una zona "strategica" vicina a tutti i principali punti di interesse. Insomma, è stata una bellissima vacanza.

  • The apartment is in a beautiful small Tuscan town with amenities very close at hand. It is very spacious and we had everything we needed. Giada is a fantastic host. There was a small issue during our stay which Giada sorted immediately. Thank you for the wine! Her family live in the same block and are lovely and helpful. We had a fantastic time here!

La maison est agréable, claire, propre, avec une très belle vue sur la campagne. Elle est située à un carrefour assez bruyant. Nous avons été un peu déçus par la configuration de la douche dans une des salles de bains.

La casa es muy grande y espaciosa y muy limpio todo. nosotros éramos 5 y muy bien, las Camas muy cómodas. Tiene un lavadero para lavar la ropa a mano y una lavandería enfrente. Nosotros echamos en falta un congelador, por lo demás la cocina está totalmente equipada. En el baño había 3 albornoces y bastantes toallas pequeñas, nos hubiese gustado tener toallas grandes para la ducha. La casa está muy bien situada, hay una parada de bus delante de la casa para ir a Florencia o Siena, Giada nos dejó todos los horarios. El pueblo es muy bonito con restaurantes, panadería, kiosco. ..gasolinera... Y justo debajo de la casa hay un supermercado. Un lugar ideal para descansar y visitar toda la Toscana!!

  • Good location but unfortunately, we didn't know that we would be hosted by one of her friend. We had no communication with her. Jacuzzi doesn't work, and dogs were barking all day and night. 2 times we had to prepare breakfast by ourselves. Dogs destroyed 3 times the garbage and the garden, so after one night you could imagine the smell and the mess. We had take car of dogs which were not fed and without water. Clearly not a good stay. Currently ware asking for a payment back.

  • The best accommodation you can imagine! In the heart of the Tuscany, close to the famous tuscan cities and villages but far enough from the city rush and noises. The house has perfect tuscan design and it is very warm atmosphere there. There is a big yard which is secured by two dogs, adorable and friendly, Amelia is the sweetest dog we have ever seen, we called her „mali pas“ (it means small dog) and her friend „veli pas“ (it means big dog). Sandra is incredibly lovely, helpful, informative and kind host. We are very happy to meet her. She recommended us a great restaurant nearby. She was very friendly and we enjoyed her company. She made an excellent and abundant breakfast in the morning. She takes care of whole house all by herself and she does everything with love. We had an excellent trip and we would definitely repeat it. We highly recommend this acommodation! Use it as a base for exploring Tuscany, it is on perfect location!

They all made our trip even more incredible. Her house is amazing, every little thing made with love and beauty. You gonna stay in the middle of Tuscany, and a strategic point to visit other places like Siena, San Giminiano, Monterigionni, Certaldo and so on. We made friends and we hope to see them again.

It is situated in a great position to reach Florence, Siena and explore the many walled towns, vinyards and resturants of Tuscany.

    Antti2016-07-02T00:00:00Z
  • Silvia was very friendly & prompt to respond to all communication. The place is exactly as the photos portray although the opening photo of the breakfast table with the view although accessible is about 40 metres away & up a set of stairs so we didn't end up finding it convenient. Our apartment was situated around an olive orchard - quintessential Tuscany! The home itself is quiet but we did hear the noise of traffic when having breakfast or dinner outside our room.

    Chris2016-10-08T00:00:00Z

  • Value The Value for this location was great. Even with the few inaccuracies below, it was an amazing place to stay in Northern Tuscany. It was very close to amenities and within driving distance to any of the little towns or vineyards you would want to visit. For the price, it was pretty great. Accuracy Overall this is a good place, but there are some inaccuracies in the post. Most of all was the terrace with the view. We had a great little porch in the olive vineyard with a BBQ, but it did not have the sweeping Tuscan view. Also, the wifi was really poor. It made it hard for me to do my work. Silvia’s husband mentioned it was an issue because they were making updates in town. He also said that we could go to their nearby hotel where the wifi would work great. I appreciated the option, but my work is not scheduled and so that would have been very difficult. Also, there was no heating. It was available for an extra charge when we arrived. We mistakenly opted not to pay for it. I could see this place being very nice in the summer heat, but in the crisp fall we were doubling up with the blankets. Also there was a small unexpected “tourist tax.” 1.50 Euro per person per day. I assume this is charged everywhere in Tuscany, but we had no idea until we had to (EMAIL HIDDEN)munication Silvia was very friendly and responded to questions in a reasonable timeframe. She also gave good recommendations for the area. Great host. Check In Check in was easy. I messaged an hour before we arrived, but I guess a call would have been better. That was my fault. We arrived, I called Silvia, and she met us 15 minutes later. Location I couldn’t imagine a better location. Outside of a mid-size town. Quiet. But close enough to restaurants, grocery, gelato, etc. (20 min walk into town. 5 min drive). And we even walked to the next little town one day. Very nice.

The heart of the winery is a nineteenth century farming settlement and what was once a monastery belonging to the Vallombrosan brothers
  • We loved our stay at this lovely vineyard. The accommodation was historic, filled with beautiful furniture, yet completely comfortable and functional for 4 adults. We loved the secluded location which was also central to much of Tuscany. The pool was excellent and views even better.

  • Amazing Place Quercia al Poggio is a renovated monastery/farm set in a beautiful vineyard in the middle of Tuscan countryside. It's not far from the town of Poggibonsi where you can find a large superstore and a train station that gets you to Florence or Sienna. The apartments are beautiful, typical Italian style . We were upgraded to the best apartment in the property due to a very minor problem but the owner and her team could not have handled it any better - we were delighted with the stunning views from the terrace area and the extra space. The pool area is amazing - with more fantastic views and as it was a quiet week we had it to our selves - an unexpected bonus. The tennis court was good, you can borrow racquets and balls and there is a basket ball net and ball as well as football nets. Margarit brought us fresh bread every morning for breakfast and we enjoyed the wine tasting session. She also gave us really good advice on travelling around the area and escorted us on our first trip to the supermarket! Excellent customer service - thank you.

    Il Santo is an old stone building, and was originally a look-out tower going back to the XIII century. It stands on the road leading to an characteristic little medieval village called Tignano. It has been recently renovated and has pleasant Tuscan-style furnishings. All of the bedrooms are equipped with mosquito netting and ceiling fans. Situated at the heart of Tuscany (35 kms from Siena, 20 from San Gimignano, 30 from Florence), the property is surrounded by splendid countryside full of vineyards, olive groves, woods, little lakes and paths where you can go for pleasant walks or along mountain-bike trails. Opposite the house is a well-tended garden with garden furniture leading gently down towards the area around the swimming-pool of 6x13m, about 50 metres from the house, surrounded by the splendid scenery of the tuscan hills amidst fruit trees and olive trees in a tranquil and secluded spot and entirely fenced-in. The large garden offers several areas for pleasant relaxation outside. Under a large tree is a table equipped for dining outside and a barbecue. There is also the following available on request: babysitter, cook, domestics for cleaning during the week and above all a warm welcome and helpfulness that will assure you a wonderful holiday. In a part of the house (which is detached on three sides, but with completely independent access from the outside) lives the owner. About 2 kms away is the town of Tavarnelle, equipped with all necessary services, along with a supermarket and restaurants.
    CHIANTI CLASSICO Chianti, the area in which Chianti Classico wine has been produced for centuries, is that part of Tuscany that is bordered to the north by the suburbs of Florence, to the east by the Chianti Mountains, to the south by the city of Siena and to the west by the valleys of the Pesa and Elsa rivers. The area is traversed by the Superhighway of the Palio. It is a land of ancient traditions that was civilized in remote periods first by the Etruscans, who left many traces of their activity in the wine sector, and then by the Romans. In the Middle Ages, the cities of Florence and Siena battled for control over the zone. Villages and monasteries, castles and fortresses appeared during that period and many of them were later transformed into villas and country residences when times were more tranquil. It was then that spaces were cleared in the vast forests of chestnuts and oaks for the cultivation of vines and olive trees, an activity that progressively assumed major economic importance and established an international reputation. The first notarial document in which the name Chianti appeared in reference to the wine produced in the zone dates to 1398 and in the 17th century exports to England became increasingly frequent. With the agrarian revival in Tuscany in the early 18th century, the sharecropper system came to dominate Chianti and the landscape was enriched because of the different way in which work was organized. Many of the farmhouses, as well as the physical layout of the properties, which has survived, date to that period. From the end of the 19th century to the threshold of the third millennium, Chianti Classico wine has steadily reinforced its position in the affections of wine lovers throughout the world and thereby assured the prosperity and well-being of the region. Siena and Florence are the capitals of Chianti, which is shared between the provinces of the two communities. The zone amounts to 70,000 hectares (172,900 acres) and includes the entire territories of the communes of Castellina in Chianti, Gaiole in Chianti, Greve in Chianti and Radda in Chianti and parts of those of Barberino Val d’Elsa, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Poggibonsi, San Casciano Val di Pesa and Tavarnelle Val di Pesa. Forests occupy almost two-thirds of the zone. Oaks grow just about everywhere, while chestnuts thrive primarily on the eastern side of the district. Conifers are concentrated at higher altitudes, while stands of pines are common on the low hills to the south of Florence. Wild animals are not as numerous as they once were but it is still possible to observe pheasants, wild boar, hares and roebucks in the zone. The Chianti wine-producing area was delimited in 1932 by ministerial decree and the boundaries have remained unchanged since then. The decree described the district where Chianti Classico is produced as the “the oldest zone of origin,” thereby recognizing its primacy and according it a special identity. Even at that time, the Chianti territory, as it exists today, was recognized as the original production zone of Chianti Classico wine, a wine that to be distinguished from Chiantis created later and produced in zones different from the Chianti territory, had to be identified by the term “Classico.” Classico means, therefore, “the first” or “the original.”

  • We loved our stay. The views are spectacular and the place is gorgeous. The pool really does look that beautiful! It's a really short drive to town and they have a great grocery store. It’s location also provided a great place to explore the region. When we just relaxed and hung out, there was a public space and private space. We chose to interact with other guests and they were also very personable. Our host provide us with fantastic restaurant recommendations!!

  • Vous cherchez un chouette logement (appart-hôtel conforme à l'annonce) ? Nous ne pouvons que recommander cet endroit ! Nous y avons passé un agréable séjour. 1) Points positifs : Une vue à couper le souffle donnant sur les vignes et les oliveraies du Chianti ! Beaucoup d'espace dans l'appartement, sur la terrasse ainsi que l'espace commun. Terrasse privatisée et une cuisine très bien équipée (frigo, four, plaque de cuisson et lave-vaisselle). La piscine, à quelques mètres de votre logement, est très agréable vu les températures en été. Un nombre important de visites à faire (Florence, Sienne, San Giminiano...) et de belles promenades conseillées par Niccolò. Si vous pratiquez la langue de Molière, sachez que Niccolò se débrouille très bien en français (en plus de l'anglais et de l'italien). 2) Points négatifs : La présence d'autres vacanciers manquants de savoir-vivre pourrait vous empêcher de bénéficier d'une place en bord de piscine. Un point négatif qui n'est en rien lié à l'endroit ni au propriétaire et qui peut s'avérer être un cas isolé ! Notons qu'il y a un total de 7 appartements sans vis-à-vis direct entre vacanciers. 3) Conclusion : Très bon rapport qualité/prix pour un excellent logement en Toscane (situation centrale). Vu l'excellente côte (sur une autre plateforme dont je ne citerai pas le nom), n'hésitez-pas à vous y prendre à l'avance pour réserver ce logement qui connaît un succès important.

  • We had a really nice stay in Lorenzo's family house. The room is so cute and exactly like photos. Lorenzo is also a great host, very kind and responsive. The welcome is very warm and professional. He introduced us to all the places in the area with a handbook with all the phone numbers. So perfect! But we didn't have a chance to use them this time because we love to hang around his house rather than going out. The garden and the coffee machine are our favorite. We hope to come again next time for sure! Great job Lorenzo!

    Oh2014-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Lorenzo's on the end of our trip, but only for two nights. It was very nice and cosy. We've had enough space, and the bathroom was great. :D :D The location of the apartment is awsome because it's a great starting point to go ti Florence, or Siena, or Val d'Orcia, San Gimignano, or Chianti region, it's right in the middle. And the enviroment was breathtaking! And the host and his family were great, very nice and pleasant people, especially grandpa :), we were sorry that we don't speak italian.

    Saša2014-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Lorenzo was a great host :D Everyone was very well organised and conducted in a professional manner. He gave us good suggestions on the best places to go around near Tavarnelle. We had the pleasure to meet his family as well who were really warm and friendly. Probably the best accommodation near Florence, a big thumbs up !

    Devansh2014-05-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in Lorenzo's apartment. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Both he and his mum were really friendly and spoke excellent English. We found Lorenzo's guidebook to be really useful too.

    Josie2015-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lorenzo was great! He gave a complete and professional review of the apartment, which was spacious, comfortable and up-to-date. Not only that, but he and his family helped us get to and from a rehearsal dinner that we had trouble finding transportation to. The house we were staying in was beautiful and centrally located in a cute village, where we found limited transportation around the region. This was the best accomodations of our trip!

    Jonah2015-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • There are no words to describe our experience in Tavarnelle. It was everything we hoped for and much more. Lorenzo and the whole family went above and beyond to make our stay unforgettable. It feels like we have found a second family in Tuscany, thank you so much we are sure to be back soon. We were without a car but we had no trouble getting around partly due to the help of the wonderful Family but even without them it is easy. They recommended great things to do based on their own and their previous guests' experience. We never wanted to leave and we miss Tavarnelle more and more by the day.

    András2015-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • The stay at Lorenzo's (and his parents) place was great! The apartment was clean, large and nice with all we needed. But the best of it was the service and the nice welcome they gave us - late in the evening (about midnight), when we couldn't find their home, Lorenzo's parents drove around to find us where we were standing lost in the darkness. In addition they gave us some food and drink, as we were quite hungry and had not found an open place on our way from the airport. Fantastic! Also, Lorenzo gave us an introduction to the area and some great tips of what to do and where to eat. Although very welcoming, they also gave us a lot of privacy even though they where living in the same house. We have no problem of recommend this apartment, and would love to go back!

    Inger2014-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • Nice house with a beautiful garden. Lorenzo has been a great host, we enjoyed our short stay very much!

    Tavarnelle, Tuscany, Italy

    This apartment is part of a nice holiday home with pool ,composed from 6 apartments in Tavarnelle val di Pesa beetween Florence and Siena. The Holiday House La Capannina di Matteo is located a few hundred metres from the ancient Roman road called Via Cassia, right outside the centre of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, halfway between Florence and Siena, in the heart of Chianti and surrounded by the famous hills that made Tuscany known all over the world. When choosing this accomodation, guests will enjoy a unique holiday in farmhouse in Tuscany, a few kilometers from the town centre, yet surrounded by nature. Nested in a grass garden, where smell of lavender and roses combine in a unique fragrance, this holidayhome orginates from the restoration of a typical tuscan villa that was a farmhouse. There are 6 independent holiday apartments at guests disposal, 4 in the hayloft and 2, together with the reception, located in the main Villa. LA PICCIONAIA (‘THE PIGEON LOFT’) – sleeps 6 This is the largest apartment in the holiday apartment complex. It has been decorated with taste and elegance. It consists of two levels of the main farmhouse. On the first floor there is a large welcoming living room furnished with comfortable sofas. This leads into the kitchen which is completely equipped with oven-fridge-dishwasher. On the same floor there are also 2 double bedrooms and 2 bathrooms with shower. Thanks to an easily accessible wooden spiral staircase, it is possible to reach the above floor – the dovecoat (or ‘pigeon loft’). The dovecote was originally used to house the numerous doves and pigeons of the farm. A lovely double bedroom has now been created from this space which is a typical element of Tuscan farmhouse architecture. Four delightful apartments have been created out of the well thought-out restoration of the barn. They now form the ‘Capanna’ (‘Cottage’). The most minute details have been adhered to and the apartments have been furnished with taste in every lovely detail including for example wooden beamed ceilings, terra cotta floors and wrought iron railings not to mention the stylish furniture and accessories. The names given to the various holiday apartments refer to Tuscan peasant farmer traditions and evoke – in this comfortable and family environment – a memory of an almost forgotten past.
  • Highly highly highly recommend these apartments. You will NOT be dissappointed staying here. They exceeded expectations on so many levels. LOCATION Fantastic- 10 min walk to heart of Tavernelle town, with everything you need. Bus stop 100 meters from vllla. We were in Florence on express bus in 30 mins. Beautiful rural outlook, absolutely gorgeous grounds, with spring flowers etc. Great swimming pool with comfortable outdoor lounges and umbrellas. VILLAS - Beautifully restored and appointed with Tuscan style furniture. We were a group from Australia and would definitely book again when visiting Tuscany.

  • Super, beautiful, exelent!

    Tamás2016-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this charming apartment located in Tavarnelle Val Di Pesa. This ideal location, situated between Siena and Florence, provided a pleasant home base from which we explored various Tuscan villages (e.g., San Gimignano, Volterra, Chianti region, Siena, Montepulciano, etc.). We would absolutely recommend this property to friends... If I were to leave any critical observations, I would have to say that the third bedroom (which we did not need) is located upstairs from the kitchen. There is a narrow, rickety spiral staircase that few people would feel safe using, especially at night when it is dark. The lighting could be brighter, as some of the lamps didn't work when we arrived, and some of the ones that did function were not very bright. The natural light shining in through the windows keeps the apartment well-lit throughout the day; it's only a problem at night when visibility is poorer. The kitchen is very nice; we used it every morning and a few nights. I was pleased to find a hair dryer in the apartment because I didn't bring the correct converter/plug for mine-- but it's old, quite weak, and didn't work in most of the outlets in the place. The Internet connection was supposedly working, but the connection was not strong enough for us to use it reliably during our stay. This wasn't a problem for us because we subscribed to a Mifi device that allowed us constant WiFi wherever we went throughout our vacation. Loved the quaint, Tuscan, countryside decor-- and the fact that the place had two full baths was so convenient! Francesca, the host, is very friendly, and the property assistant/manager, whose office is located on the same floor as this property, was extremely responsive and made sure that everything was to our satisfaction. We didn't get to use the pool (we were too busy!), but it's really lovely. The grounds are beautifully landscaped... it was difficult to leave. Hope to return again one day! Ciao!

    Victoria2012-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • We were welcomed on arrival, and later in week met Francesca. Lovely apartment in very pleasant surroundings as described. Convenient for town and ideal for exploring Tuscany, but pool closed.

    Jonathan2015-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous, highly recommend. Great location and accommodation as good as pictures if not even better. Nothing can fault at all (apart from some rain) and will go back when hotter / sunny as would be even nicer

    John2015-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • WOW !!! A perfect house with a perfect location for Toscana travelers. We had a great vacation in this house, great kitchen, clean house, full of everything and of course, a swimming pool. What U see is what you got !

    Yaniv2016-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Good functional accommodation. Great pool area. We were in the three bed which we found a bit dark . The other units had better outside seating which would have suited us

    In the Chianti's heart, independent comfortable villa on top of a sunny hill surrounded by an astonish 360° view on the Tuscan Countryside btw Siena and Florence. 2800sqm fenced private garden with pool, wi-fi indoor & outdoor, sat TV, barbecue and wood pizza oven!
    The property capacity can vary from two to eight people and all the areas are very cozy with fine details. One of the nicest features of this property is that all the areas can have privacy from each other because the main house has two levels with two separate apartments plus one independent pool house. Please note that the swimming pool is closed from 1st November to 31st March.
  • We were fortunate to have the 'loan' of Christina's beautiful home for 4 weeks, sharing it at times with family and friends. The Villa Isabella may be described as a haven in the middle of the Chianti region where families can be together but at the same time have their own space. Christina is a warm, friendly and considerate host, who on welcoming us on our arrival ensured that we were comfortable with the layout of the villa, as well as providing us with useful local knowledge. On our departure, Elena, Christina's Mother, travelled from Florence in the early hours, to ensure that we were given a warm and friendly farewell. The villa is located midway between Florence and Sienna, and is only 5 mins from the Florence/Sienna Motorway. It's central location provides easy access to the Chianti Hill Towns. We did, as a group of eight, take the opportunity to have Christina prepare and cook for us a special Dinner (more of a banquet), on one Saturday evening. It was an exceptional meal and we would certainly recommend to anyone having Christina provide this 'Taste of Italy' experience. The only disappointment for us with Villa Isabella, was on the Saturday morning when we had to leave after a glorious 4 weeks. Thank you Christina and Elena for giving us the opportunity to share your beautiful home - happy memories.

    Michael2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • This a wonderful country home with three separate living quarters with beautiful views from every spot. Christina was great. Very helpful answering our questions and suggesting things to do. It is absolutely necessary to have a car. Joyce and Ron Wilson

  • Christina was very responsive regarding all communications leading up to the trip and while we were there. Her mother met us at the gate and showed us everything we needed to know for our visit. The setting is very beautiful and peaceful, and there is plenty of room.

    Janet2015-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Christina was a top notch host. Gracious, accomodating, helpful. This is not like most rentals. This is a family home. It is well maintained (pool guy, gardener, christina and her mother) It is your picture perfect tuscany home set on the hillside with beatiful vistas. An experience like no other. Highs: Christinas cooking Beatiful views Wonderful enclosed private garden adn grounds emaccualtely kept Great host Two full kitchens + outdoor kitchen + kitchenette in pool house Many beautiful indoor and outdoor living areas. Great location close enough for daytrips and nearby grocery, but far enought for your contryside privacy. private oasis like pool Only downside was the location and gardens did leave is with many mosquitos. This is not by any means a complaint but just a tip to bring protection. Christina was very accomodating providing sprays, candles etc. Would recommend this place to anyone looking to have the perfect tuscan vacation. We were two families of 4 adults and 3 children. The best airbnb we have encountered.

    Sujith2017-05-31T00:00:00Z

    Sue2016-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • I would highly recommend staying here. The location is great - convenient to both Florence and Siena. The views are amazing - 360 degrees of rolling hills. The villa was fantastic - loads of outdoor space with different eating areas and rooms for kids to run around and explore. Christina was a great host, showing us the local area for shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again!

    Jesse2017-04-19T00:00:00Z

  • The house was beautiful in a scenic location in Tuscany. Ideal for daily trips in the area. Nevertheless I have the following remarks: 1) the house directions/address details were inaccurate and to our surprise the owner wasn't aware of this!!! 2) some basic amenities were missing, such as hand soap and waste bins in both bathrooms.

    Danai2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay for someone who is looking to experience living in the tranquility of Tuscany's countryside. The apartment is as good as it looks in the pictures and is well equipped. Dishwasher and washing machine made the stay easier and practical. We made also use lots of use of the barbecue and the pool. The air-conditioning in every room functioned very well and was really useful during our stay (+38 C!). You will need a car to move around but the location is very good as it is close to many sights like Firenze (30 minutes), San Gimignano (30minutes), Chianti road, etc. Giacomo and his family were super friendly from the first contact till the end of our stay and made us feel at home. Strongly recommended!

  • The landscape was spectacular with a Tuscan views with olive trees and vineyards. We had a separate apartment that was removed from the big house with good outdoor seating spaces and roaming areas for our children. Our room wasn't advertised in the Airbnb pictures. It was 2 levels with a shared spiral staircase with no doors separating the spaces. It was more like a studio set up. The kitchen well-stocked with dishes and pans. A fan or air con would make the space more pleasant for sleeping. It has a big pool with nice seating around it. Be sure to bring everything you need including toilet paper, bin bags, dish washer tablets as this was minimally provided. Be sure to bring bug spray as we had mosquitoes at night. Concetta, the receptionist host, spoke excellent English. The resort is lovely but it wasn't ideal with small children. It would be perfect for couples and families with older children. It was lovely to walk through the olive trees and vineyards. It is in a perfect location to explore Florence and Siena as it is halfway between each of them.

    Sabina2017-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • La région est magnifique, et les parties communes (piscine, terrasse) sont très agréables. Nous avions malheureusement l'appartement du deuxième étage qui est très sombre, et qui n'a pas de wifi, contrairement à ce qui est annoncé. Concetta a voulu nous facturer une taxe qui n'avait pas été annoncée sur airbnb. Bref un accueil moyen, mais un séjour très agréable tout de même.

    sophie2016-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Hormis des difficultés de communication dans les semaines précédant notre voyage (silence de la part de notre hôte suite à notre refus de modifier les dates validées...), nous avons grandement apprécié notre séjour. La propriété est pleine de charme, les bâtiments ont gardé leur caractère d'origine et la vue est magique. La piscine est un plus appréciable dans cette région trèèèèèès chaude. Notre logement était parfait pour 4 : une pièce à vivre correcte, une grande chambre pour les parents, une chambre plus petites pour les enfants, une salle de douche fonctionnelle et un cagibi. Beaucoup plus d'espace que bien souvent dans les logements de vacances. Seul bémol : l'équipement en vaisselle est un peu juste... Le tout est idéalement situé, à moins de 50 minutes (le plus souvent autour d'une demi-heure) de tous les sites Toscans que nous souhaitions visiter : Florence, Sienne, San Gimignano, Volterra, Monteriggioni...). Nous recommandons vivement cette propriété !

    Barbara2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Superbe endroit, et superbe vue. Piscine très agréable. L'appartement que nous avons eu au 2ème étage était spacieux et confortable. Il n'y a pas de climatisation, mais en gardant les volets et les fenêtres fermés en journée, ça va (toutefois, ceux qui supportent mal la chaleur, s'abstenir). Quelques bémol : très pauvres en vaisselle (même pas un saladier, une theière, une planche à découper...) pas d'internet (en même temps, ça fait des vacances...), et télévision à réception pourrie (on voulait voir le Palio de Sienne en direct).

  • Unsere Unterkunft (Burgo 5) war riesig u sehr geschmackvoll restauriert. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Lage des Agriturismo ist sehr günstig für Besichtigungen der Städte in der Umgebung. Und der Pool liegt traumhaft zwischen Olivenbäumen u Weinhängen.

  • Enrico and Simone have created the perfect Tuscan getaway! Chianti Passion is lovely and charming, both inside and out, and we can't wait to get back. The views are incredible--like a postcard from every window--and the beautiful garden is a perfect oasis to enjoy a glass of wine and some time in the sun. We were also privileged to take a cooking class from them on handmade pasta-right there in their spacious kitchen. We learned a lot but mostly just enjoyed an amazing experience. Both of us were deeply impressed by our hosts' generous and warm nature, and their fantastic hospitality. The house is located halfway between Florence and Siena, and is an easy drive to either one. If you feel like staying closer to 'home', Barberino Val D'Elsa is only 5 minutes away and has some amazing restaurants in its own right. No matter where you go in the area the vineyards, villas, olive groves, and abundant flowers create the perfect backdrop to a classic Tuscan holiday. Note: Be aware that most map apps work better if you put 4-9 in the street number rather than 2! 2 takes you to a (very pretty!) small parking lot in the next town up the hill...

  • This is a beautiful house in the middle Tuscan countryside. It is surrounded by lots of vineyards and sits in between 2 towns, about 2 miles to each. We would recommend a car if you stay here. My family (parents and brothers, all adults) did not rent one and we did A LOT of walking. It wasn't a problem if you're used to walking. The scenery is beautiful so it is a nice walk. But it was a little tough on my parents' knees and feet. We are at a Il Campanellino in Barberino and particularly ravioli. Simona and Enrico were great to answer all of our questions and went out of their way to give us a ride to the bus station when we were leaving. We had a great stay here.

  • What a beautiful and wonderful place to stay in Tuscany! Enrico and Simona are kind and thoughtful people who made our stay top notch. They recommended some restaurants in the area and they were all amazing. They also recommended us to go to a few family owned wineries: and this was really the highlight of our trip in Tuscany! They were small wineries and they had such a cosy family feel. Stay at this air bnb if you want to rest your hat watching the sunset behind the beautiful medieval town. The scenery was perfect, and the location quiet and away from all the tourist! And they have a pool which was a great way to cool down in the heat. Enrico and Simona provide cooking classes and lunches of local flavors. We didn't get to try this experience, however stumbled upon one of their lunches and it just smelt so delightful! We can't give this place enough rave. It was truly the perfect place to spend our days in Tuscany.

    Shoshanna2017-06-23T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for relaxing vacation We enjoyed a lot the beautiful landscapes and of course the garden with the privat pool. The location is close to Siena, Florence etc. We definitely can recommend this location.

    Silke2017-08-27T00:00:00Z
  • Simona & Enrico's villa is beautiful, clean, well equipped and the location could not be better! The view of the vineyards was worth the stay...but the hosts made it even more enjoyable. They suggested great places to eat in the nearby villages. They made reservations for us to do a wine tour and tasting at a local winery (5 minute walk away). Then we signed up to have a cooking class with Simona & Enrico (both professional chefs). That was so much fun and so, so delicious! They are super hosts! It was the perfect spot for our Tuscan vacation! I highly recommend this Villa!

The room is inside our home on the upper floor and can accommodate 2 people. (There are two twin beds that can be joined together or kept separate). It has tile floors, thick walls, and traditional wooden shutters on the window overlooking the forest and hills. Your own large, private bathroom is just outside the bedroom. The house is a classic Tuscan stone farmhouse built in 17° century and completely renewed in 2000, with wooden antique furniture, and high ceilings with large oak beams. There is a patio overlooking the garden and the surrounding hills with a large table where , when it's warm, you can enjoy your coffee or a glass of wine. This is a very peaceful place. In the morning, the birds sing; in the evening you may see wild deer or boar along the edge of the forest; and at night you can see many stars. You can walk up the road and enjoy the beauty of the Tuscan countryside. You'll be sharing the home with us, Patrizia and Paolo, with our daughter Premal and our son Manu and with our friendly yellow Labrador named Margot, and several farm cats that mostly live outside. Patrizia is a craftwoman with a shop in San Gimignano, and Paolo is a communication manager. Our daughter Premal is attending university in UK and plays cello. Our son Manu loves animals and he is training to work with horses . We all speak English. We offer warm hospitality that is also respectful of your needs and privacy. We can provide coffee and tea for your room or you can use our kitchen. Space provided in fridge if needed. The closest village, Barberino Val d'Elsa, is just a five minute drive away. It has a bakery, shop with an English and German-language newspapers, wine store and tasting room, grocery store, restaurants, and one of the best pizza in the region. Barberino Val d'Elsa is centrally located in the Chianti region between Florence and Siena, ( 30 km) with Certaldo, Volterra and San Gimignano from 20 to 40 minutes by car. Hot mineral baths with spa services are only 45min away. Many great restaurants and wine tasting opportunities are also nearby.
  • The stay with Patrizia, Paolo and their family including Margot and the cats was absolutely amazing. We immediately felt home in their beautiful house. I could have stayed there forever. Thank you very much for your warm welcome and for looking after us. I hope we will stay in touch and see you soon. I highly recommend Your room in Chianti to everybody who appreciates the beauty of the landscape surrounded by a very friendly and interesting people.

    Terezija2013-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Staying with Paolo and Patrizia is the best thing anyone can do when in Tuscany. They were so warm, inviting and helpful, the kids were very helpful and friendly too. They gave us very good tips on which towns to go to and clear directions on how to get there. The house and room was very cozy and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom had everything you would need, like lotions, soaps, etc. It's the little details like that that made me love my stay even more. Breakfast every morning was delicious, especially the apple cake which Patrizia baked for us, we appreciated this very much. Also, not forgetting their lovely dog Margot and cute cats who provided endless entertainment for us. We completely fell in love with them and the place and were very sad to leave. Staying there gave us a very good experience in Tuscany and I would love to go back and stay with them on my next visit. Paolo and Patrizia, thank you for everything, we absolutely loved our stay with you guys!

    Vanessa2014-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I booked with Paolo and family looking for a place to stay in a beautiful room in the lovely scenery in Tuscany. What we got was something far richer, far meaningful. The five nights we spent with the Fantin family were some of the best of our lives, featuring delicious breakfasts, lovable pets, and, most memorably, real conversation with like-minded intelligent people. We felt welcomed into their comfortable home from the start, and by the time we said goodbye, even like temporary family members. We were sad to say goodbye and truly look forward to reuniting with the Fantin family in our travels. If you are looking for a warm family atmosphere in a gorgeous setting, you should visit Paolo and Patrizia and their kids and pets. We'd do it again in a heartbeat!

    Ria and Fritz2013-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you so much! The right description is that we felt as being at home, with good friends known since long time with whom you can speak of many things and always find the discussion interesting and fruitful. The place is simply amazing, the hosts even better and so how can the atmosphere not bhe perfect?! We hope to come back very soon!!! thanks!! Andre e Silvia

    Andrea2013-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place! We stayed here for a few nights in between sight seeing in Florence and Rome. What a great place to just relax and soak up the beautiful country side. Paolo and his family are amazing hosts. We enjoyed talking with the, and spending time with Margot and the cats. The room was better than we could have imagined and was super relaxing to be in their beautiful home. They arranged reservations for us for dinner in town during our stay and helped us navigate to some nice little towns in the area. We added the breakfast, which was amazing each morning!

    Tom & Amber2014-04-30T00:00:00Z
  • Doesn't get any better. The words, "there aren't enough stars to rate this place' we're said on multiple occasions. Paolo, Patrizia and family were amazing. We stayed 5 nights at their house and did not want to leave! Fresh pastries and fruit every morning next to fresh coffee! The place was extremely homey! Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Tuscany!

    Chase2014-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Paolo and Patrizia (and their two children) were amazing hosts for us: very welcoming, very generous and very kind. The house is lovely - I loved the lavender guest room - and the countryside views were idyllic. The whole place is very peaceful. It was great talking to the family and understanding more about the Tuscan way of life. They also had good recommendations on what to do in the area and in Florence for the next part of our journey. Thanks for a great time!

    Siobhan2014-05-30T00:00:00Z
  • Paolo and Patrizia were perfect hosts. We enjoyed our stay in Barberino really good. We felt perfectly welcome. The room and bathroom were great. The breakfast healthy and fresh. Beautiful garden with a Tuscan view and a good glass of wine. We would definitely come back here. They gave us the real Tuscan feeling. Could not be better! Thanks Paolo and Patrizia!

  • The stay in the house was an authentic pleasure and either Orazio and Sonia are very kind people, they help you in every thing you need (if you need to go somewhere they explain you the best way to go) they are available 24 hours every day of the week and if you ask them recomendations to go they give you not just a few places to go, even they give you the best way to get the village, or the lake, or the beac... whatever you need . We had a problem with the TV and they solve it very very fast. It was a very nice and kind house and it is even better than the photos in the net. Thank you very much, and if one day we go again this house will be the first option for us. Thank you very much.

    Sara2015-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time in Tavarnelle. The accommodations were spacious and had all of the conveniences described in the listing. Orazio and family were very helpful during our stay and always available for questions. Access to major cities by car was easy and parking right on the property. If you are looking for a relaxing time to explore this region, I would recommend trying FLO-SCANY.

    Michael2016-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 7 nights in FLO-SCANY appartement, and were very satisfied. Appartement is clean, fully equiped and homey. However the wheather was extremely hot, the apartement was properly cool. You will find exactly what you see on the pictures :) Hosts were friendly, open and caring with us. Suggested good places to visit, organised a wine-tasting evening for us, bought medicines for me when I was ill. They are really nice persons and we enjoyed their hospitality. We spent very nice time there. Thank you.

    Magdolna2015-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Orazio, Sonia and their lovely daughter Florica made us feel very welcome upon our arrival and throughout our stay. They are nice and kind people, they know Toscany very well and gave us good advise on places to visit and were happy to assist us with anything we asked for. The apartment is spacious, clean, and has everything we needed to feel at home. It was exactly as described in their web site. Location is good too: not far from the highway and in between Florence and Siena. We will surely come back and surely recommend it to our friends!

  • Isäntäpari Orazio ja Sonia olivat meitä vastassa saapuessamme tähän upeaan paikkaan. Asunto on kuvauksen mukaan alakerrassa, omassa rauhassa ja todella tilava ja viihtyisä. Pihalla on myös tilaa auringonottoon tai vaikka piknikiin viinitarhan reunassa oliivipuiden alla auringon laskiessa ja tulikärpästen luodessa tunnelmaa. Maisemat ovat upeat ja talon sijainti kävelymatkan päässä Tavarnellen kylältä. Kylältä löytyy parikin hyvää ravintolaa illalliselle, myös viihtyisät baarit ja kahvilat sekä iso ruokakauppa, leipomo jne. Tiistai-iltaisin keskusta on täynnä ihmisiä, ravintola levittäytyvät kaduille ja tunnelma on hieno. Jos haluat tuolloin ruokailla, pöytä pitää varata etukäteen. Torstaiaamuisin samassa paikassa on markkinatori, jossa on tarjolla matkamuistoja, vaatteita ja syötävää tuoreista meren elävistä kasviksiin. Kylällä on myös pyörävuokraamo, jossa edulliset hinnat, pyörällä liikkuminen lähiympäristössä on helppoa ja turvallistakin. Isäntäpariskunta opasti meille ystävällisesti myös toisen, isomman vuokraamon Poggibonsista, jossa valikoima olikin vielä parempi. Auto on kuitenkin hyvä olla, ympäristössä on niin paljon nähtävää ja ilman autoa kulkeminen on haastavaa. Orazio ja Sonia neuvoivat upean ravintolan (Gabbiano), jossa heidän tyttärensä on töissä. Saimme siellä erinomaista palvelua ja upeat maisemat illallispöydästä alas viinilaaksoon. Muita hienoja kohteita lähellä ovat mm. Castellina in Chianti, Certaldo (kannattaa mennä vaunulla ylös), San Gimignano (tosin vaikea löytää pysäköintipaikkaa), Volterra ja Siena. Tiet ovat kapeita ja mutkaisia, joten matkoihin kuluu aikaa. Kilometrin päässä talolta on upea viiden tähden hotelli (Nero), jota kannattaa myös käydä vilkaisemassa. Lomapäivämme Orazion ja Sonian talossa ja Tavarnellessa olivat rentouttavat ja nautinnolliset, kiitos Orazio, kiitos Sonia!

  • Our 2 night stay at Cinzia's villa was amazing! She was extremely nice, helpful and welcomed us with her house wine and information to get around. The villa is very well furnished and clean, great for 3-5 travellers. The neighbourhood is calm with magnificent views and easy to get to by car. I would most definitely stay at Cinzia's villa again!

    Anastasia2015-05-12T00:00:00Z
  • Myself and my 4 brothers and sisters spent 4 nights staying at Cinzias beautiful Tuscan villa. On arrival we were warmly welcomed by Cinzia, who showed us around the immaculately clean flat, which was just as described with 2 bedrooms, a spacious bathroom with separate toilet, open plan kitchen dining, complete with pool and great outdoor facilities. We were supplied with towels, robes, and even given a bottle of her husbands own red wine and olive oil as a welcome gift. The location of the apartment is ideal- on a quiet street but well within walking distance of the Classic Italian village of Tavernelle. Our only form of transport was bicycle- and the villa was easily accessible to many of Tuscanys popular bike and winery trails. Cinzias family live next door so the pool and outdoor area is shared- however during our stay we felt as if we had the whole place to ourselves. Cinzia was incredibly helpful while still giving us our own space, she even offered to pick us up some groceries while she was doing her own shopping! Overall we had a brilliant stay at Cinzias place- no complaints what so ever, and would highly recommend it. Thanks!!!

  • We had a fabulous time at the villa. It is in a great location close to the town centre - approx 5 min walk. Plenty of lovely eateries there. The villa is lovely and in a quiet location but the pool was a real highlight. Cinzia and her family live next door but it felt as if we had the place to ourselves. It was very easy to visit all the Tuscany offers from the villa.

    Allan2017-06-24T00:00:00Z
  • Thank you Cinzia for your warm welcome and hospitality! We had a wonderful stay! The house is nice, with a great garden, a large pool with sun beds and a beautiful view. The center is just a 5 minutes walk. Tavarnelle Val di Pesa is very charming, with al lot of activity during te the summer. It is ideal to visit Firenze, Siena and all the other populair places.

The place has the best view to watch while drinking chianti and eating dinner. Thanks for everything! - Morten and Julie

    Morten Bahrt2016-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location in Tavarnelle, in the heart of Tuscany, just 30 minutes drive from Florence and not much more from the centre of Siena. The apartment is just outside the centre of town, is a good size, and there are some great views over the Tuscan countryside from a couple of the rooms. Luisa and her family could not have been more friendly and helpful, and their English is excellent – making up for our own very poor Italian. We’ll try harder next time! All in all a wonderful near three-week stay. Highly recommended. Thank you!

    Daryl2016-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful place to explore the region. The couryard view and location is perfect to unwind after a hard day's exploring. The view is as if you're far in the countryside, but the nearest store is a walking distance away. The hosts were kind and helpful. I would recommend to anyone interested in exploring Tuscany based from a comfortable and scenic location.

    Zoran2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • We sorry that we stayed in Tavarnelle only 2 nights. It is a good place for visiting picturesque places in Tuscany. Our host Luisa is truly described in her recommendations, which were written by her fiends on her profile. She is very communicative, responsible, hospitable and has a perfect language skills. We also like her aunt Cristine, on the first look a kind person, who prepared for us a full basket of fresh fruits. We also appreciate that Luisa' s uncle Gianpiero helped us with repairing of our car. Thank you! Although were hot nights, we slept very well because of comfortable beds and nice smelling shower gel, which was in the bathroom.

    Katarína2015-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful stay in Luisa's appartment. As she was traveling at our arrival her family gave us a very warm welcome and explained everthing in the appartment. Also recommendations for trips and restaurants were given. The appartment is completely furnished and very clean. We could use the terrasse and garden with a wonderful view as well. Luisa and her family are always very friendly and helpful. Tavarnelle is perfect to visit Florence and Sienna and many other beautiful sights in Toscany in short time. We can remommend Luisa and her appartment for a perfect trip to discover Toscany.

  • Luisa's place was absolutely amazing- a dream come true! The location is perfect with incredible views, close parking and even a super market nearby! It is also convenient if you want to visit other villages in Tuscany like Lucca, Volterra, San Gimignano, Sienna and Florence is just 30 minutes away! The apartment is just perfect! It is spotless and she provides everything you need to relax and enjoy!! Luisa and her family made our trip so wonderful and we will never forget their kindness! I have been using Airbnb for over 5 years and this was the best experience ever!! We didn't want to leave! Thank you Luisa and family from the bottom of our hearts! We will be back!!

  • Our host was most accommodating. We had very much discussion prior to our arrival and she provided us with more than you could ask from a host. The neighbour hood is very quiet and walkable to the downtown. There is a grocery store, laundromat, car wash, bank and everything else you could need. It is a short drive to Florence and Siena and everything in between. Our host and her uncle and aunt that live next door are amazing people and they complete made our vacation more than I could have imagined or asked for. I will be forever grateful for all that they did for us.

    Tavarnelle, Toscana, Italy

    High on a valley overlooking the typical landscape dotted with olive trees and vineyards. Well it renovated, also keeping the characteristics of Tuscan farmhouse: wooden beams, terracotta floors. Outside, a pleasant pool scene.
    THE TINAIA is a portion of a farmhouse of 160 m2, distributed over 3 floors. The renovation was made with particular attention to detail, while maintaining the structure and the main features. The living area on the ground floor is very spacious and overlooks the garden. It leads to a hall, where there is a large dining table; on one side the vast living room (35 m2) with fireplace, furnished with antique furniture. On the other side of the kitchen, complete with all appliances. A small closet that fuge from storage and laundry room, and a bathroom with sink and toilet. It then leads to the first floor where are the bedrooms and a bathroom, with bath and shower, separate. Through an iron spiral staircase leads then to the "dovecote" with a breathtaking panoramic view of the surrounding countryside.
    Observing the territory of Barberino and its surrounding villages, you will keep a unique and very special, the result of the harmonic fusion between the natural contours and the work of man, which has enriched and often sweetened with crops, castles, farmhouses and small villages. Moving on the territory encounter dark woods, orderly vineyards, silvery olive trees, cypresses solitary or in long processions, sweet-shaped hills. Romanesque churches, winding country roads and sunny, ancient testimonies of a historical and environmental wealth. The location is still great to be able to reach any place of historical tourist attractions between Florence and Siena: San Gimignano is 19 km away, Certaldo 13 km, Montespertoli 20 km. It 'also a great place for lovers of wine routes. (The owners are also producer and distributor of wines nationally and internationally and are available for tastings)

  • We have had a wonderful stay un this very cosy and comfortable house. The Tuscan countryside can be enjoyed from the terrace and all the windows. Caterina, Marco and Philippo have ben very nice and available at all times. We have enjoyed very much Firenze ans Sienna, 30 minutes away from the bouse by the Motorway Nous avons passé un fantastique séjour dans cette maison très accueillante et confortable. Les beautés de la campagne toscane peuvent s'apprécier de chaque fenêtre comme de la terrasse. Caterina, Marco et Philippo sont d'une grande gentillesse et ont toujours été très disponibles. Nous avons particulièrement aimé découvrir Florence et Sienne, à 30mn de la maison par l'autoroute. A recommander !

  • This was a beautiful house, and such care was taken to provide all the amenities for our stay. The views are even more spectacular than in the photos - vineyards all round, sunrise from the terrace, San Gimignano not far away, beautiful sunsets every evening. The kitchen was well-equipped and both bathrooms had lovely big showers! The pool was great and the bedrooms very comfortable. An easy driving distance to Florence and Siena, and less than two hours to Assisi.

  • From our first point of contact enquiring about the property until our departure from the villa, Caterina and Filippo could not have been more helpful and friendly. We were welcomed on arrival and kept in touch during the week when required, this being much appreciated. The villa was exactly as described and we had a wonderful week exploring this most beautiful region. It was really nice to return after a long hot day to plunge into the pool and cool down and relax. The location was ideal for visits to Florence and Siena, San Gimignano or Brolio....all superb. Comfortable, private and relaxing....we had a fantastic week in Tuscany and very much enjoyed staying in Casa Caterina. Mille Grazzi

  • This is a really exciting place, we had a wonderful time! The view from the deck is absolutely spectacular, to East, South, and West, so you can see the sunrise as well as the sundown, and everything in between, it feels like half of Tuscany. Very friendly hosts Caterina, Marco, and Filippo, always willing to help. If you are looking for a perfect place for your holidays, you found it. We hope to be able to come back one day.

  • This place won't disappoint. It is a lovely home and we already miss the sunsets sitting on the balcony, plunging into the pool several times a day in the heat and lolling about the Tuscan countryside. This house has a commanding view and so perfect to visit all the must see towns which are at most only about an hour away. Thanks for the experience!

  • This property could not be any more ideal, it ticked all the boxes on my 'must have' checklist for my stay in country Tuscany. The property is as you see in the photographs and everything we needed was supplied. There was a generous supply of essentials for cooking and anything we needed we were able to buy from the supermarket only 5 minutes down the road. Every room has picturesque views even the shower has a cute window to look from. The bedroom was very comfortable as was the lounge room furniture and the panoramic views and sunsets from the terrace are breathtaking. The entire home is beautifully decorated with a collection of art that makes it feel personal and as if you are living as a local. We will be staying at this property next time we visit Tuscany and have no hesitations in recommending Casacaterina to our friends and family. Thank you for providing us with such a fantastic base to experience the Tuscan countryside.

  • WOW! What can we say, from our first email, to being greeted personally by Caterina and Marco, to helpful and friendly communications with Filippo and finally to a send-off in person by Caterina and Marco on the day we left. It was like saying goodbye to good friends. The house was perfect for the two of us, but would be great for four people as well. The views from all windows and from the upstairs private terrace are breathtakingly panoramic. Views of the surrounding hills as far as the eye can see and of the vineyards sloping down the near hillside were heavenly. But, the most spectacular of all were the most beautiful sunsets that we have ever seen, each unique night after night. During our stay, we had a day or two of rain and witnessed a rainbow in our own backyard. The private pool is a plus and is surrounded by a grassy spot shaded by olive trees. The house is more inviting and tastefully decorated than we had imagined. It has a rustic décor in lovely colors with antiques and plants throughout. Each room is spacious and has distinctive features that have been carefully planned and lovingly appointed. It is indeed like being in your own home. The quietude is welcome; the only sounds are the occasional car on the road and church bells ringing in the distance. The house is spotless, it has a great kitchen with more than enough equipment and dishes, and the 2 bathrooms are perfect. The photos do not do justice to the elegance of the Villa. The house is centrally located and near to all major Tuscan regions including Florence and Siena, as well as to charming smaller villages away from the crowds. Wine and olive oil tastings abound, as well as local markets and a more than adequate super market within 5 minutes, where you can buy wine, mortadella, burrata, and other regional foods. Caterina, Marco and Filippo …..Grazie mille we will be back!!
