This stunning Tuscan villa vacation rental is in the perfect position for panoramic views of this valley rich in history, agriculture and Italian culture.  You will find yourself on the top of the world in this 5 bedroom - two and a half bath self catering villa rental.

Nestled in the lush green landscape of Tuscany, this vacation rental offers the perfect opportunity to relax in privacy while being only minutes away from an active medieval town where you will find restaurants, shops, cafes and even an authentic open air market every Tuesday morning for your fresh fruit, veggies and cheeses.

Without a doubt the outside "loggia", as the owner calls it, is the focal point of this beautiful vacation villa.  This is corner terrace is located on the first floor and has the entire valley in a classical Tuscan frame of hand worked stone columns.  You can see the medieval castle which has been there since before the year 1200, La Verna, a monastery built in the late1200's and the newly sanctioned national park.

The interiors of the villa are a perfect mix between the traditional Tuscan style of earthy colors, terracotta floors, thick wooden beams and modern comfort with large comfortable sofas, a stereo with CD player, SAT TV and much more. You will enjoy the touch of luxury the owner has incorporated into this simple and classical structure.

Villa Gigi is really close to Poppi, about 4km, one of the most beautiful castles in Italy, and from the terrace you have a wonderful view of the castle, imposing on the top of a hill. Casentino National Park with its secular forest grown up over the high mountain is right behind it. This is the place where the river Arno rises before run direction Florence and Pisa.

There are a total of 5 bedrooms in the villa.  The first is located on the first floor - a large double bedrooms.  You will find the other four bedrooms upstairs.  Each bedroom is furnished with an antique bed - and has a window overlooking the delicious valley below.
There are two full size bathrooms, each with a sink, a WC, a bidet and a shower.  Both bathrooms are located on the 2nd floor at either end of the hallway.  They are large and spacious - perfect for families with children.

There are three bedrooms on the second floor - each bedroom is with a beautiful double bed and an antique closet.  The bedrooms all have views overlooking the valley and catch the cool breezes  - making them perfect for a restful evening...or an Italian style, mid afternoon nap.  The fifth bedroom is located in the tower on the second floor.  This bedroom is comprised of two fixed single beds.

Casentino is a really beautiful natural area with many possibilities to visit interesting locations, like the Camaldoli Monastery, La Verna and the towns nearby: hamlets and castles like Poppi, San Nicolò, Soci and Pratovecchio. Bibbiena (12km) is a larger city that offers much to do: a large supermarket, cinema, good restaurants and a charming historic centre on the top of a hill.

A barbecue party by the pool is a fascinating idea. Specially in a place like Villa Gigi that offers an unique panorama.

The villa offers a double entrance - one on the first floor on the pool side of the villa.  There is a refreshing covered terrace with table and chairs below the pool where you can enjoy a cool drink before running back to the 5.5 x 10.5 pool area above.  The pool is furnished with lounge chairs and a shady gazebo area.

The second entrance is on the ground floor, where you enter into the super-sized eat - in kitchen. This magnificent area is perfect for gathering the family together for meals and good times. You will find that the kitchen is completely furnished with everything you need to make your stay fun and carefree - dishwasher, clothes washer, large refrigerator with freezer, stove and full sized oven. Ask about their cooking classes or about having a chef come in and spoil you with an authentic Tuscan meal.

Alan Orton, Quebec,

We have had a wonderfull time at Villa Gigi. The setting is tranquile and ensures relaxation. The warm hospitality of Anna, Gigi and Stella is a great reflection of Italian Spirit. Once we got used to the road, finding our way, gettig around was very easy. Villa Gigi became our home away from home. Great Food, Great wine, Great company.

Thank you so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness. Your beautiful villa made our holiday dream come true. What a wonderful place to enjoy time with our friends after our wedding in Poppi Castle.

We had an amazing time with our family at the villa. Everything was as described and pictured... perfect! Our children all loved the pool and were able to roam the grounds without disturbing any neighbors. We took day trips to Florence, Pisa, Sienna, and some of the small surrounding hilltop towns. It does take about 10 minutes to get into Popi... windy small roads. But we managed to make it for gelato every day! Gigi was so hospitable. We would love to return one day.

Marie Chabanel, Fullerton, United States

Our holiday was three years in the making - well worth the planning. The villa was the perfect location to come together as a family. The children loved the pool and running wild in the property. Day trips to Cortona, Siena and Firenze wonderful. Gigi - thank you for beeing such a gracious host.

Zoltan Morvai, Passau, Germany

This is the type of villa where everyone can find his place. It is great for children and adults. The pool is a great place to play or lounge and the children loved the tower room. We loved beeing here at the house and also enjoyed walking to Poppi. The area is beautiful. It is like a different world here in Tuscany. We hope to have the opportunity to visit again in the future!

A beautiful Villa in a magnificant setting - Tuscany at its very best. We hope to return and enjoy this all again. Thank you!

Arndal Anders Stubbe, Copenhagen, Denmark

We have been travelling in Italy for more than 20 years and have spent time in villas and various locations. However we have never experienced anything that just remotely remembers the fantastic location at Villa Gigi. Villa Gigi is charming and inviting and it is simply a pleasure to stay here. The outside of the house - originally the rural home of the families close anchestors - carefully restored to fulfill modern claim for comfort. The interior is a chapter of its own, objects choosen "con amore" revealing italian history mixed with delicate items for a more feminine touch. All together a villa with the absolute perfect balance between charm and style. Our kids have wondered why the family themselves does not live in such a wonderful place. On top of this we have never before experienced such degree of genuine hospitality, generousity and kindness as Gigi, his wife and daughter have shown to us throughout our three weeks stay. We will definitely be back!

A perfect place to enjoy great food and watch our 1 year old boy run and crawl on grass for the first time! A beautiful house in an amazing place. An amazing position and experience and the perfect introduction to Tuscany. The beautiful countryside and the relaxing spaces and style of the house has made for an extremely pleasant and relaxing stay.

The owners of the villa were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate us when we had a request. The villa itself had such appeal, with its outlook over the valley, roomy kitchen and living area, lots of outdoor areas and being located in a quiet area with no close neighbours. All that we hoped for. We had lots of room inside and out. The bedrooms were charming and lounge room area was big enough to accommodate all of us. We made use of the many outside areas especially the verandas situated off the lounge room and kitchen. The position of the villa gave us wonderful views of the town of Poppi, especially in the early morning when there was fog in the valley. It looked like a picture from a fairytale with the medieval castle and the old part of Poppi above the mist. We used the outside cooking area a few times and it was lovely having an open fire place in the lounge room on the few cool nights we had. It was lots of fun going with Gigi to buy produce from the farm and gathering apples, mushrooms and figs. The cooking lesson with Linda was a highlight. We were amazed at her skill at preparing many dishes at once. The food was delicious and we learnt a lot and intend to put what we learnt into practice in Australia. We loved walking into town which we did a few times. The walk home looked a real challenge when we saw the villa from town, but it turned out to be good exercise and we enjoyed that too. The lifts to town by Gigi were much appreciated especially with all our luggage on the last day. Also, we appreciated the prompt way our water problem was fixed. In all, our visit to Villa Gigi surpassed our expectations and I will enthusiasticly recommend it. Stella, Gigi and Anna, you were so welcoming and friendly, that made our holiday so much better. We would love to come back, however the distance from Australia dictates that it may not be any time soon, but I have many friends who would have loved to have joined me in Italy and I will tell them about the villa. Thank you so much for the wonderful time. I fulfilled a dream.

We were met by Stella in Poppi who took us up to the villa and showed us around. During our stay her father, Luigi, popped in to check on us and brought freshly baked pizza and foccacia. The villa was far more delightful and comfortable than our expectations. It is furnished with beautiful & interesting decor. The villa has so many indoor & outdoor areas to escape to with breathtaking vistas which kept everyone happy. It is at the end of a dirt road and so quiet that you cannot hear any noise from any properties at all. The stunning panoramic views of the Tuscan countryside with the view of Poppi castle in the distance will stay with us all for a long time. We had planned to do a few day trips from the villa but were so relaxed that we opted for time chilled out around the pool instead. The pool area was heaven. We did a day trip to Florence which was an easy drive. Poppi is a charming town & a visit in the evening to the bar/cafe next to the castle is a must as this is where all of the locals, from young to old, hang out. There are lots of restaurants in the area to try with something for everyone. We will definitely return to the Villa Gigi in the future and would not hesitate to recommend it to friends. Thank you Anna, Luigi & Stella for letting us use the Villa Gigi. We did not want to leave!

We loved "Ristorante Lo Sperone di Strumi" right down the road. Don't miss the Poppi market on Tueaday morning. Arezzo's antique market is the first Sunday. It was a lovely town and market. This villa was very comfortable for 9. The kids loved the pool. The kitchen was well equipped. We could not get enough of the view. I felt like I was looking at a painting from every window. The view was even more spectacular than on the web!!

Breathtaking views. Very quiet and relaxing. Nico was very accomodating and extremely quick to respond to any calls/requests we made. Mobile phone access was very good, but no internet access.(Has be resolved >> Tuscan Villas)

Ann Conrad, Livermore, United States

It's a bit of a drive to get to the villa but once there the views and privacy are spectacular. The villa was well equiped and the pool area is especially nice. The owners, Anna and Luigi are very friendy and helpful and gave us good recommendations to restaurants. We loved Restaurant Lo Sperone Di Strumi 3K, and La Vita about 10K away. The castle in Poppi is wonderful and the zoo for the kids was a nice city break. The drive to Florence is beautiful. The house was nice and large for the 10 of us and we had a fantastic time and would love to come back someday.
