Roberta was a pleasure to deal with, the property was tremendous and all in all a great experience. The only possible improvement would be a kettle and the possibility of air conditioning in the bedrooms.

We loved the warm welcome, with freshly baked cake and sweet wine from the friendly owner Roberta. The whole house is beautifully decorated, the pool area is amazing, the water sparkling clean, lots of pool toys for kids, loads of shady spots when the sun is too warm. peaceful sunny deck. The surrounding garden and woods are begging to be explored. The peace and quiet a balm to the soul. The jacuzzi tub in the bathroom,with endless supply of hot water the icing on the cake.
Bibienna is a nice town to explore, really close by. All the shops close from 1 to 4 so go early for shopping and lunch at Pizzeria Sparctacus on their huge sunny terrace overlooking the valley below.Skip the Poppi zoo. It is pathetic, but go to the town and climb the tower for another amazing view. Arezzo and the Piero de la Francesca frescoes are a must.
What did you like on our website www.tuscany-villas.com ? It was very easy to navigate, with lots of selection and good information about the various rentals and driving diretions.

The villa was fabulous! We just couldn't believe it was all for us! You really must try the pizza oven, and the BBQ area was great. Roberta and Stephano were wonderful hosts, meticulous about watering plants and making sure the pool was clean. They brought us truffles and we even went out with Stephano and his truffle hounds on our last day. Nothing was too much trouble for them. We also found there was wifi at the villa; great for keeping in contact with friends but also allowed us to use a great internet site that translates English into Italian, and vise versa. Essential for us, and enabled us to communicate with our hosts who had limited English. We really cannot recommend this villa enough. If you're looking for a quiet retreat with lots of space, this is for you!The local supermarket was excellent with a wide range of local, fresh produce. A wonderful restaurant can be found locally in Raggiolo - il Convivio dei Corsi.

Beautiful villa and setting. We loved our stay in this wonderful, quiet bit of heaven on earth. The property managers/owners were extremely friendly though limited english was spoken. They brought fresh truffles! Yummm!!.
