“House in the country”
Reviewed 14 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

This is a very well maintained property, modern furnishings and well equipped kitchen. A microwave would be nice. The wifi was very poor most of the time. It was very cool and rainy when we were there and the house was very cold when we arrived. However, the next day Luigi turned the heat on so that it was more comfortable.
This house is for people who like to be a bit "away from it all". Volterra is about a 15 minute drive away.

Thank you for your feedback on our property, we have taken a lot of pride in making it comfortable for our guests. I am sorry that the inclement weather during your brief stay in Tuscany seemed to affect your opinion of our home. The heating was there for our property manager to adjust, as he shared with us the temperature change came quite suddenly. Only the day prior to your arrival, the temperatures were very seasonal. We have asked him to ensure the heat is on regardless for our upcoming guests.
I am so pleased you mentioned the wifi. Being on a hill in Tuscany, the wifi will not be 100%. We like our guests to know that. We have upgraded the access points, however it is a challenging topography. We try as every owner on the property does to improve this, however I feel it is important to set realistic expectations.
As for a microwave... 10 years and 16 trips to Italy we have never had one in a rental home/apartment/villa. The Italian way of life is to shop often, use fresh food and use the stove top or oven to reheat any left overs. The kitchen is fully equipped to make many enjoyable meals for families/couples.
Your review brings up great points for future travelers and what to look for in vacation homes vs hotels.
Thank you,
Eric

This place is definitely a place to which we'll return. It was peaceful, beautiful, centrally located, etc. It provided the needed relaxation after a tour of the major cities and historical attractions of Italy.

“Highlight of our trip to Tuscany!”
Reviewed 29 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

The villa is located at the top of a hill that overlooks the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Sitting on the patio with a bottle of red wine, my husband and I really enjoyed watching the sun set over the city of Volterra, which is just 7 km away and a perfect view. The villa was the perfect location in the Tuscany countryside. It doesn't feel tourist-y and you get an authentic Tuscan experience. You are 15-45 minutes drive from dozens of wineries and less than an hour away for Pisa, Florence and the mediterranean sea. If you want to keep active, there are several kilometres of trails from your doorstep to hike, run or mountain bike.

The exterior of the villa is the original ancient farmhouse. The medieval-esque doors were my favourite. The interior is newly renovated, with modern decor. We flew into Pisa airport, where we picked up a rental car. We picked up most of our groceries for our stay at the local grocery store - called Conad - on the drive from the Pisa airport to the villa. The villa's kitchen is well equiped to make full meals. The bedrooms are a decent size, with comfy beds and lots of space to unpack your clothes and personal items. Both bedrooms have a walk-out door onto the patio, which was amazing! The bathrooms are very nice, equipped with large windows for fresh air and natural sunlight, glass-panned shower stall and even a bedit!

Luigi, the property manager, is also the owner of the restaurant/B&B on the same property. He and his staff were extremely helpful and welcoming on our arrival. On our first night, we had dinner at their restaurant, which was a delicious Italian experience!

Booking these accomodations with Tania and Eric was very easy. They were very informative and helpful. Their pictures and description of the villa don't do it justice! I would highly recommend this villa to anyone looking to experience the Tuscany region!

Thank you, Tania and Eric, for making our stay so enjoyable!

“Gorgeous Villa ~ Breathtaking Location ~ Fabulous Rental Experience!!”
Reviewed 8 May 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We were the first guests to stay in Villa Bel Sogno, and what a treat it was! We were travelling in Europe to visit family and wanted 4 nights in Tuscany to ourselves. Renting a new property with no reviews was a little scary, but after we spoke with Tania & Eric we felt excited about this adventure. We checked out the reviews on their other rental property in the Canadian Rockies just to get a feel for what their homes were like. The reviews were outstanding & we were thrilled to read what other guests had said about the property itself & about how wonderful the owners were to deal with. We booked with confidence that this was going to be a wonderful accommodation...and we were not disappointed!! It was amazing...everything we had hoped it would be and so much more. The property was absolutely gorgeous...inside and out! Beautifully decorated and immaculately kept. As Canadians, we loved having pillow top mattresses to rest after a long day of sight seeing. Although it was cooler in the winter, the views from the bedrooms & kitchen were spectacular. We dined locally in Volterra and cooked one evening in the apartment. The kitchen is surprisingly well stocked for a rental apt. Tuscany is beautiful even in the winter, and there were less tourists so we really enjoyed the locals. I have never written a review before, but had to let people know that this place was a great place to stay for our first visit to Tuscany. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and we look forward to returning one day. Highly recommend!! David & Family
