We enjoyed our stay in Pangea villa from 9th to 16th June 2018. It's a well equipped and comfortable villa. We find everything we need during our stay. The owners, Paola and Angelo were very helpful and made our stay very pleasant.
Spent an amazing week at this villa in Tuscany with 3 generations of family. Everything about the property including the beautiful pool is top class. The owners were incredibly kind and helpful! We took fun day trips to Florence, San Gimignano and 2 wineries in Montelcino, but looked forward to relaxing at the pool every evening. Really hope to visit again!!
Stunning villa perfectly embedded in the countryside with great views into the nearby forest and to the hill of Montegiovi. We used the villa for eight people (including three children and one teenager) and felt it very spacious and practical (short ways to the kitchen from outside for example, comfortable entry, all spaces optimally useable for storing, hot water shower outside on the back side of the bar). Everything was as shown on the pictures, very clean and in best shape (we were maybe the fourth or fifth renters). Perfectly maintained 12m-pool with bar. The villa is best to access from Montegiovi, paved road until the last 300 m (after the bridge over the Ente river, but almost flat street section, no 4x4 needed) accessible with normal cars.
Even though the lower regions of Tuscany were very hot it was very comfortable in- and outside of the villa Pangea; quite often a soft wind was blowing and temperatures were in maximum at around 30° C (second half of July). The nearby Ente river is a paradise of nature and can be used for cooling and playing around too. The toys in the huge garden were great and fully functional. The outdoor kitchen was regularly used including the grill. The house is fully climatized, the bathrooms were perfect and all windows were equipped with fly screen, therefore the inside was completely insect-free. We twice had a local inhouse-chef for cooking, which was a great pleasure. Almost every day we got vegetables from the vegetable garden on site. The surrounding vineyards are all worth visiting and have very high-quality wines (especially Hortulanus (Podere Bugnanese) and Castello di Potentino). Supermarkets are present in Arcidosso, great bakery (Corsini) in Castel del Piano. Weekly markets in surrounding towns are worth visiting and have great local products.
The owner couple (Paola and Angelo) cleaned the pool every morning in the early hours when we were still sleeping. Daily water quality control for low chloride of the water, which was very comfortable avoiding red eyes especially for the children. They gave us a lot of information for sightseeing and restaurants. The garden was green even though we didn’t have much rain and it was dry at least six weeks before we arrived.
We enjoyed the villa and the great garden for two weeks and hope renting it again. Absolutely recommendable!
We loved every minute of our stay at Pangea Villa. The house is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The pool area with the bar as well as the barbecue area are amazing! The owners of the property are very lovely people! The week at pangea villa couldn't be nicer!
The villa is beautiful and situated in a lovely secluded spot. It is only a short drive to local shops for anything you need. Everything was provided, and the owners couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. They provided fresh produce from their allotment and maintained the pool on a daily basis. They even showed us where the local shops were when we arrived later than expected on our first evening!!
The villa was spotless, well equipped and spacious. It's the attention to detail and finishing touches that really made this property stand out for us. The pool can be closed off and even padlocked if you have small children, but ours were old enough that we didn't need to do this. The gardens are wonderful and full of interest. Hidden among the herbs and plants are football & badminton nets, basketball hoops and a boules court (all with flood lighting for the evening games!). Rackets and balls were also provided for everything. The kids were in heaven!
The pool was lovely and warm enough that you could spend all day in it. The pool bar also had a powerful, hot outdoor shower that meant no one had to traipse back in through the villa with wet feet to get a drink or an ice cream. It's rare that a villa exceeds your expectations, but this one really did. I would recommend it to anyone!
