“The warm welcome from Jenny was a lovely start to our holiday in Simonicchi. Sunglasses are a must when taking breakfast on the roof terrace, with stunning views across the valley to the tree covered mountains beyond. The Villa is clean, tidy, well equipped and with many books available to choose from. The beds are very comfortable and the shower is such a blessing in the heat! Excellent restaurants in Lama and Caprese a few minutes down the road in the car. There are wonderful walks nearby, so get the guide maps from the helpful lady in the Tourist Information in Chiusi. See Michelangelo's birthplace in Caprese and St Francis' sanctuary at La Verna. Beautiful old town of Anghiari is not too far and further afield make time to visit Poppi, Assisi and Arezzo. Florence is 2 hours away but suggest parking at Arezzo and taking the (fast) train on to Florence. We would recommend the Villa to friends and family, and hope to return ourselves. Thank you Jenny for a wonderful and relaxing honeymoon in this romantic and idyllic corner of Tuscany.”
“I stayed here with my two children (11 and 14) as I really needed a get away from it all holiday with peace and quiet, great wine and good food. I chose wisely! Stunning place, my host was thoughtful and approachable, it is a place to experience the real Italy.”
“The house is delightful, beautifully restored while maintaining its historical character. The views are fantastic, stretching across the valley to the wooded mountains. A painter is spoiled for choice, but probably, like me, won't need to go beyond the terraced garden to find inspiration. The owner is happy to advise visitors about venues and is always ready to help solve any problems that arise.”
