Wie rust wil, en een schone, grote kamer, een vriendelijke gastheer, een heerlijk zwembad, een eigen zitplek buiten, en op rijafstand van Florence, moet hier zeker naar toe gaan!
Geweldig huis en perfect om toscane te beleven
Het huis is op de eerste verdieping en met grote kamers. Slaapkamers met airco (heerlijk). Zeer vriendelijke verhuurder en alles goed geregeld. Zwembad is goed met mooi uitzicht over de velden. We komen zeker nog een keer terug.
Very lovely place to relax and enjoy Tuscan history
Via di villa Barberino is a very lovely Tuscan vineyard/villa. We enjoyed our stay very much.
It is a very old villa, but the flat is well appointed with 2 bedrooms. 2 bedrooms - perfect for our family of 4 (ages 12 & 18 year old girls). There is air conditioning in both bedrooms (master - queen, bdrm 2 - two twins) There are also fan(s) provided. The sheets and towels are CLEAN and CRISP. The bathroom/shower is clean and neat. There are towels provided for the the family for the lovely pool area that overlooks the vineyard scenery. The pool is well kept and clean. There are designated areas for chairs, etc based on which casita you are staying, but we were alone for most of our stay (nice) and when more guests arrived, no one seemed to care.... there were plenty of loungers, etc. for everyone. (not crowded at all). The caretaker (owner?) was very nice and provided us with a bottle of wine on check in (p.s. tried a LOT of Chianti Classico and this was truly my favorite - so bold and flavorful). I also bought a couple bottle of the Nunzi Conti EVOO - Yummmmmm & 8 Euros ea).
A couple things: there is not a LOT of correspondence for booking, etc., which made me quite nervous ( I didn't get the address until very soon before our trip, which I did not care for (I am a PLANNER)....However, there was no need to fret, as all is exactly as represented. Smooth transaction, lovely caretaker, well kept grounds/flats, and an overall positive experience. We have travelled extensively and used VRBO with mostly positive experiences - this was one of them This was our first European trip and this place was a 4.75/5. My only small suggestion is that. although there are cooking/eating utensils, etc there are no provisions such as the basic salt/pepper/cooking oil, etc. Many people may not cook at all on vacation, but in Tuscany, there isn't the opportunity to just pop downstairs for a quick ANYTHING..... so being able to have breakfast - or whatever - in your flat is welcome. Maurizio did point us to the COOP Fi for supplies - (8km away - quick trip), so we were all good - but buying salt, sugar, pepper, basil, etc.... well, we dealt with it and were just fine. It is no reason not to stay in this absolutely lovely villa. We would 100% recommend it to anyone wanting to visit Tuscany. Go to Florence, Siena (Duomo), and San Galano - must see....
Good location & views, shame about the noise
The apartment was clean and offered stunning views. Unfortunately the lounge window overlooked the court yard which was used by the villa which was occupied for the duration of our stay by 3 families who drank & talked & sang into the early hours every evening which made it difficult to sleep. When we did manage to get to sleep, we were woken early to the sound of cockerels and hens and the occasional sound of a buzzing mosquito.
The photos on the website are of the 3 properties but it doesn’t show you which photos relate to each property. Was a little disappointed at the lack of basic provisions considering there are no local shops, you have to drive to Mercatale - 4 km away or San Casciano,8 km away. One toilet roll for 4 people, no basic ingredients eg salt, pepper & oil. Also mosquito nets over the beds would have been a great help
Nevertheless the location was great for exploring the surrounding area with little gems like Siena, Greve and San Gimignano. Florence was only a 35min drive away and is well worth the visit.
Antonio provided a list of restaurants and we visited two of them. Cinque Di Vino served fantastic Florentine steak and Il Gallo Giallo was simply stunning, small menu but great quality food.
Little disappointed that we didn’t get a tour of the vineyard (I did ask) nor did we get treated to a bottle of their wine as in the previous review.
Positives: Good location for exploring, stunning views, spacious and clean accommodation, great pool and outdoor dining area
Negatives: Too noisy (but I guess we were unlucky that week), no mosquito nets and no basic provisions

Idyllische Lage - perfekt für Ausflüge
Um die Region zwischen Florenz und Siena zu erkunden ist die Lage des Objekts nahezu perfekt. Nach kurzer Fahrt ist man auf der Schnellstraßen, aber auch die übrigen Landstraßen sind sehr gut erreichbar. Die Ferienwohnung hat alles was man braucht, jedoch könnte sie etwas liebevoller eingerichtet, so würde man sich noch wohler fühlen. Da in der Wohnung diverse Treppen sind, ist insbesondere bei Kleinkindern besondere Aufmerksamkeit notwendig. Die Außenanlagen laden zum verweilen ein, jedoch muss man bedenken, dass die Wohnung im 1. OG des Gebäudes liegt und somit immer eine Treppe genutzt werden muss. Die Vermieter waren jederzeit erreichbar und die Kommunikation war reibungslos.
