Remarquable localisation pour la visite de la Toscane, maison avec énormément de charme.
Thank you Rozan! We are glad that you liked the property, hope to see you and your family again here at the villa.
A very nice home in Tuscany.
Overall this is a lovely home, the grounds and exterior are well-kept and beautiful. As other reviewer‘s have noted, the inside is somewhat dated. The kitchen is small and not terribly well-equipped although we managed to cook dinner almost every night. The biggest problem Is the powder room just off the kitchen which has a floor drain issue. I was assured that this would be fixed shortly, as the season is ending and they can make repairs. Hopefully then the smell would be gone. The biggest plus however, is the location. You can take the bus from the center of town and be in to Florence in 30 minutes. Or you can drive to the park-and-ride at Villa Constanta and take the tram into Florence.
Thank you for your comments, we are glad that you had a nice holiday here.
Due to the constant flow of guests throughout the year it was hard to make even the simplest repair, now that the season is over we can finally work on the house!
We look forward to having you here again in the future.
Great stay in Chianti
The property was lovely. The pool and grounds were perfect. Sabrina and her family were easy hosts. Thank you for a fabulous time!
Thank you, we look forward to having you here again soon!
Historische Villa in Traumlage
Villa Carmignani ist ein denkmalgeschütztes historisches Anwesen, das von einem wunderschönen, gepflegten Garten umgeben wird. Die Lage ist erstklassig: Ein Katzensprung nach Florenz, direkt im Kerngebiet des Chianti. Das Haus und die Schlafzimmer sind großzügig. Die Bäder sind teilweise recht neu saniert, teilweise aber auch schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Die Sitzgelegenheiten außen sind schön. Man findet bei jeder Witterung einen geeigneten Platz. Der Pool ist sehr großzügig und gut gepflegt. Die Küchenausstatung könnte für ein Haus dieser Kategorie vollständiger sein. Manches Sofa in den Wohnzimmern hat schon bessere Zeiten gesehen. Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Uns hat es sehr gut gefallen. Wir haben zwei sehr schöne, erholsame Wochen in der Villa verbracht.
Thank you for your comments Florian, we are glad that you had a relaxing vacation at the villa. We are looking into improving the kitchen equipment. Every year we update something at the property and we already have a list of things to do during the winter, like renovating 2 of the bathrooms.
Wonderful stay in a beautiful Tuscan villa
We left this morning, and am already longing to go back. The villa is beautiful, clean, huge, well equipped and in a superb location. The pictures do not do it justice at all. The pool is enormous, ten of us playing ball and only filling half of it! Would thoroughly recommend getting in the Chef in Tuscany to cook whilst you are there. I think the most amazing homemade veg pasta and Tiramisu I’ve ever had. It is very close to a well stocked coop and beautiful town, if it hadn’t been so hot, we would have walked in for lunch one day, but drove instead. It is well placed to visit Florence, 20min drive to the tram, free parking and then 20min tram ride into the centre, and also all other major Tuscan towns. We picked up our older teenage children from Pisa airport, again a very easy journey taking just under an hour. I really can’t say anything bad about this place. We have stayed in several beautiful villas in Italy before, but this really did tick every box. Also the family that own it are lovely in every way. Thank you for letting us share your slice of Tuscany. Hopefully we will visit again another year, this time with our grandchildren. (Another bonus, pool is down steep steps but that is fenced from the house 😊😊)
Thank you for writing such a thorough review, we really appreciate it! Hopefully we'll have you here again in the future.
Nice grounds, but run down house that is not being taken care of
I will start with the good things: Beautiful grounds, amazing view, Big pool, beautiful gardening and clean outdoor surroundings. The owners and care takers were very prompt to assist with the issues that came up and extremely helpful.
The bad: The issue that bothered us most was the smell in the house-especially in the kitchen. Combination of mold, gas and sewage. I hated going through the kitchen not to mention cooking. The cabinets held dirty plates and utensils, which were taken care of once we mentioned it.
Take in consideration if you like to cook (and we were dreaming of cooking in Tuscany) - the kitchen is very basic when it comes to accessories. The most basic I ever encountered in houses I rented.
Between that and the odor-we tried to stay away from the kitchen as much as we could. Another thing you should plan is buying EVERYTHING before you get to the house. By everything I mean even sugar, salt and dishes detergent. There was not even one drop of dish detergent. Not a grain of sugar. Honestly, after renting tens of houses and apartments it seems to me very cheap and humiliating to welcome tenants that rent in thousands of dollars without the basic cleaning accessories.
Another issue, if you plan to stay there in the summer - there is no AC in public areas (which we new in advance from the listing). The house was extremely hot and we couldn't open the doors because of the mosquitos.
Bottom line - I'm giving 3 stars because I feel bad to give less. They were extremely nice people. However, as is - I would not go back, nor would I recommend it to a friend.
You can get away with the heat and the dirty dishes, but the odor in the kitchen and other parts of the house, the small, basic, not updated kitchen-was making our stay extremely unpleasant .
Hope this is helpful.
We did our utmost throughout the week to help these quite demanding guests. Now, despite our best efforts, it is just sad and disappointing to read this review. In order to give some background, we need to describe just a few examples from this week. The guests complained about the refrigerator, so we had it checked out and confirmed that it works very well. They didn’t see that there were 18 glasses in the kitchen cabinet, and were so upset they went out and bought a set at the supermarket (our glasses are still there). When they got a flat tire, we even found a mechanic to come to the villa and change it because the guests didn’t know how and their car rental company left them stranded. We are always happy to help our guests, and to receive constructive criticism so we can improve! But it is also important for us to give readers balanced information.
Regarding the specific complaints in this review: We pride ourselves on taking great care of the property and try to give our guests a good stay. So frankly it is almost offensive to read that the house is run down and smells. After this review we went through the house carefully to try to find an odor, but we did not find anything. About the kitchen equipment, there is an oven, refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, and washing machine: however we will gladly look in to providing additional equipment.
About the dirty dishes in the cabinets: the family who stayed at the villa the week before washed the dishes and put them away in the cabinets, we did not check them and they were not clean: our mistake for not checking properly, as noted, we immediately went to the villa and washed everything again.
Regarding supplies: we do leave dish soap in the kitchen, by the window. We also provide a first roll of toilet paper in all the bathrooms. We don’t leave salt and sugar for hygienic reasons.
The villa is just as advertised: there is air conditioning in all 5 bedrooms but not in the common areas. However, the ground floor area stays naturally cool thanks to thick, stone walls, as long as you close the shutters during the day, as the locals do.
Thank you for acknowledging that we are nice and patient people in your review.
