“The perfect Tuscany cottage”
Reviewed 25 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

My husband and I stayed at Alessandro and Emiliano’s place for 4 of our 11 nights in Italy. The cottage was by far our favorite place. It has all of the amenities needed to make you feel as if you are at home. But more importantly Alessandro and Emiliano are the most amazing hosts. From the appetizer when we checked in, to all of the tips about the area, to having us for coffee on our final morning in their home; it was all perfect! The views from this cottage cannot be beat. We will definitely be back to explore more of this beautiful region and we will certainly make sure the cottage is available before we book anything else!

“This cottage really has the wow-factor!”
Reviewed 16 May 2018 for a stay in October 2017

The cottage is beautifull and located on a quiet hillside. It contains everthing you need, including two wonderfull hosts and dogs . Allesandro and Emilliano take good care of their guests, they make you feel welcome and at home. The cottage is near all important sites in Tuscany like Pisa, Lucca and Florence. The hosts can tell you all about these places and know details wich are not to found in your travel guide . For us this was one of our best AirBnB experiences! Truly recommended!

“Bliss!!”
Reviewed 24 March 2018 for a stay in August 2017

Beautiful charming cottage where you can totally relax & unwind.
We loved watching the sun fall over the valley from the garden bed in the olive grove.
The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking delicious Italian food.
We used the outside dining area every day, just one of the outside terraces along the front of the cottage.
Alexandro, the owner is very helpful with loads of local knowlage
The two golden retrievers are great fun but not invasive.
Spotless clean & very comfortable accommodation with some quirky details!
Ideal base for touring beautiful Tuscany.

“Perfect place to relax!”
Reviewed 30 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Alessandro's cottage is the perfect relaxing retreat. Back home in th UK we lead a very busy lifestyle, and we were looking for a place to stay close enough to visit some of the amazing places Tuscany has to offer, but far enough into the Tuscan countryside that we could wind down and relax. It was exactly what we were looking for. A car is a must as it is approx 10minutes drive from the nearest town Prato, but again this was no issue. The only thing that may have been nice is if we could've walked to a bar/cafe, but we stocked up on wine and drinks and had a glass or two at the cottage taking in the amazing views instead! During our stay we visited Florence, Siena, Pienza, San Gimignano, Greve, and Monteriggioni which were all reachable within an easy day trip. We were greeted on arrival by Alessandro's sister who showed us around the cottage and, and was really nice and very welcoming - she brought us a welcome drink and some amazing Bruschetta which was a nice suprise after a long drive. During our stay Alessandro and his partner were perfect hosts and although they gave us enough privacy to relax, we were always made to feel they were on hand if we needed anything. They go over and above what is required and the small gestures make your stay one to remember. The cottage is stunning. The pictures don't do it justice! It is decorated and furnished to a very high standard, and we both commented on Alessandro's attention to detail. It is very quiet, and although set in the grounds of Alessandro's impressive home it is very private. You have your own entrance and driveway, private parking next to the cottage and you are surrounded by perfectly kept gardens and olive trees. We are very pleased we stayed here, and would book to stay here again without hesitation. We hope one day to return!

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 16 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

My wife and I spend a lot of time finding the perfect accommodations for our trips, and we've never had anything like this before. Staying with Emiliano and Alessandro is like being hosted by family. They were full of attention for our wellbeing, as well as our 4 month old daughter's. Interactions were frequent, easy and pleasant.

The house itself is consistent with the above: you can tell it was designed with great care, love, and impeccable taste. The detail-oriented travelers will really appreciate the depth of this house, with the old and the new blending in together in a seamless, thoughtful manner. The windows in the living room offer a breathtaking view of the nearby hills and village, sometimes we simply sat on the couch and indulged in the view for lengthy periods of time.

Lastly, the location allowed us to travel to adjacent cities quickly and easily. We visited Firenze, Lucca, Prato, and Pistoia; all were well within driving distance even with the "baby factor" (which limits our tolerance for long drives).

We could sense that for Alessandro and Emiliano, giving is a reward onto itself. We endorse them with absolutely no reservations, they truly deserve it.
