Family from Amersham, United Kingdom Sep 2018

The property is situated in a beautiful spot on top of a hill with magnificent views over the valley and stunning sunsets. The tennis court and pool are excellent and completely private. The house itself is very clean but rustic, and some of the furniture is in need of an up-grade, particularly the downstairs sitting area which is cramped for the number of bedrooms. There are a number of areas to eat al fresco (mosquitoes allowing) and the fig trees and vines provide plenty of fruit in the late summer.

We absolutely loved the scenery and facilities (pool, tennis court, laundry, BBQ, kitchen, abundance of space and bathrooms, pet tortoises and choice of dining areas). We also loved the gracious and kind owners and caretaker.

Robert T. Jul 2018

We recently returned from a 2 week stay at Villa Valentini and we couldn't have been more pleased. Our hosts were very accommodating and the villa was extremely well kept. The location was very central to the Tuscon region and only 30 to 45 minutes by train to Florence. The train station is about 20 minutes from the villa. Luisa the property manager was very helpful in arraigning a private chef for one evening and also an all day private tour with transportation to several wineries, which I highly suggest. I do recommend that you have a car as the villa is up in the hills and you can't really walk to town. The views of the valley however are breathtaking. I would certainly recommend this villa to larger groups and families and would definitely stay here again if I were to visit Tuscany in the future.

The house and the property offer a lot of place to find rest and recreation. The view over the valley from the pool area and tennis yard is stunning. There is a cosy outdoor barbecue place, which can be used as a fire pit for the nights. The house itself is well equipped, there was nothing we've missed. The hospitality of the hosts, Isabella and Mauro, is outstanding, really warm-hearted persons. The contact with the sales office was always friendly and the response came almost instantly. WE WILL BE BACK!

Piotr May 2018

Very warm and charming hosts. Tennis court and swimming pool were a very nice addition to the house. Only if the weather was better we could use the barbecue outside.

Patrice B. Jul 2017

Nous avons passé 2 semaines au mois de Juillet 2017 dans le domaine de Isabella et Mauro et en sommes revenus enchantés. Si vous aimez le calme et la beauté des paysages, la propreté des lieux d’une part, la gentillesse, l’efficacité discrète des hôtes d’autre part et la proximité des grands lieux de Toscane …. Un seul endroit où résider ! La piscine, le tennis, les aménagements intérieurs et extérieurs sont parfaitement étudiés et entretenus. La gentillesse la disponibilité de nos hôtes étaient totales et non feintes ; la discrétion, l’efficacité de Mr Paulo à l’entretien, ont rendu notre séjour absolument mémorable. Si nos pas nous ramènent en Toscane nous espérons que ce soit à Pian Disco dans la villa Valentini.

We have just completed a delightful 2 week stay at Villa Valentini and we have nothing but good things to say about this lovely villa and its charming owners, Isabella and Mauro. The Villa is pristine, built in 1706 and lovingly restored by Mauro with the highest quality workmanship. It has many lovely sitting areas both inside and out, a well appointed kitchen and a pool and tennis court. We were especially lucky because it was fig season and the 3 large trees were laden with delicious fruit. Isabella and Mauro shared their home-made wine with us and the caretaker, Paulo was very kind and accommodating. The sunsets were so spectacular that we just couldn't bear to be away in the evenings. We give high recommendations to Villa Valentini.

Daniel E. Aug 2016
