“A dream come true!”
Reviewed 7 July 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We were thrilled with our stay at Villa Carda. We traveled to Italy with another family, with nine in our party and children ranging from age 10-16yrs. The house, grounds and location exceeded our expectations. The rooms were all ensuite, well appointed and lovely, and provided privacy and a place to retreat. The pool and landscaping were pristine, with cherry, olive and chestnut trees, and the quintessential herbs and flowers. The house overlooks the beautiful Casentino Valley -- breathtaking again and again. The house has a lovely new spa, with steam shower, hot tub and exercise bikes, a driving range, an outdoor ping pong table, and a little garden to which we could help ourselves (strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, lettuce were). Antonio and Andrea, the villa owners, were delightful and so hospitable. They were attentive and kind. We hired Andrea and his lovely wife Francesca to cook a Tuscan meal for us one night that was truly fantastic. We explored the nearby old town of Arrezzo, which was fantastic. We took the train into Florence one day. We also explored nearby Cortona, Poppi and Bibbiena, each very worthwhile. We were sad to leave and will savor this experience!

“Excellent !!! A true Italian experience.”
Reviewed 30 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Our stay at Villa Carda was everything our family had hoped for in our Italian vacation..Our party consisted of grandparents and three grandchildren 8,10 and 12 with 8 people total. There was more than adequate space for everyone to enjoy the villa, pool, spa and the lovely grounds surrounding the property.. The owners were very accommodating and are readily available to offer recommendations on restaurants and sights within the area.
This is not your typical Tuscan vacation spot (IE Siena) with traffic, large crowds of tourists and scores of cheap souvenir shops but if you are looking for a true Italian experience this is it.
Recommended day trips include the monastery at LaVerna, Arezzo and Cortona. The owners are also available to prepare dinner at the villa which was the #1 highlight our stay. Francesca, the owner's wife is a trained chef and allowed our grandchildren to "assist" in the preparation of the meal. Warning !!! bring your appetite... the dinner was fabulous with sufficient leftovers for dinner the next day. Our only regret was that we had only planned a one week stay rather than 2 weeks.

“A fabulous Italian villa vacation”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Four couples from Colorado, all in their seventh decade, thoroughly enjoyed this luxury villa and most all the amenities. The October temps were a little too cool for using the large swimming pool. Villa Carda has received many rave reviews, and this is yet another. Far and away, this is the finest accommodation we've had in our many travels to this region over the last 15 years. The real highlight of our stay was dining in. On three occasions, Andrea and his wife (chef) Francesca prepared gourmet meals. The food, the wine, the ambiance, and the company provided a vacation experience we'll not likely duplicate.
