“Outstanding property, great location, excellent vacation”

The villa is very conveniently situated 45 to 60 minutes from Florence, Siena and Pisa. Close to a number of beautiful hill towns including San Giminano, Voltera and Monteriggioni. Colle Val d'Elsa is within 10 minutes for groceries etc. There are many excellent restaurants within a 15 minute drive.
The villa is wonderfully situated about 300 metres from a minor road, secluded and completely private, with peaceful views over farm land and forest. Very tranquil setting.
It is brand new (2011), but built in the traditional style with great attention to setting and detail. The landscaping is excellent, there is a beautiful infinity edged pool immediately adjacent to the house and a huge covered porch with large dining table and deck furniture.
Inside, the layout is spacious with very high quality furniture and finishes, expansive bedrooms and luxurious bathrooms. Great comfortable living/family room, a huge eat-in fully equipped kitchen with very high quality appliances.
The owners were extremely kind and helpful with suggestions for restaurants, sights and trips.
Weve been fortunate to stay in a number of excellent properties around the world: this villa is easily one of the best.

“A wonderful week in the heart of Tuscany at a magnificient villa!”
Reviewed 2 November 2011 for a stay in September 2011

The Podere Scopicciolo in Casole d'Elsa is 30 minutes from Siena and 45 minutes from Florence. Our stay in this very private and beautiful villa was something straight out of a movie. The amenities were top notch - from our comfortable and quiet bedrooms (most with private baths), secluded away from the excitement of the socializing in the living and dining rooms, to the immense cooking and gathering place of the fully-appointed eat-in kitchen. Homemade pizza made in the outdoor woodburning brick oven was a tasty and special event.

The serene views of the rolling countryside were spectacular and breathtaking. With the infitity pool right outside the kitchen door, lounging and sunning were the orders of the day. Especially nice was sitting poolside at sunset with a glass of Tuscan wine in hand recounting the activities of the day with friends.

Our hosts were most welcoming and offered great advice sightseeing, things to do in the surrounding vicinity and great places to eat authentic Tuscan cuisine.

“Delicious. Much better than we expected.”
Reviewed 28 October 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The house and surrounding area are incredible, beautiful, paceful and smell authentic tuscan lifestyle.
Its owners, Marco and Cecilia are really kind and helpful. We went there for vacations, and we came back to Spain with two new friends.
We will be there again for sure.

“Best vacation ever, beautiul house and pool, most charming and helpful hosts.”
Reviewed 27 October 2011 for a stay in July 2011

Cecilia and Marco have created an extraordinarily beautiful house in a private, typically Tuscan landscape. When booking the villa I thought that the house could not be as beautiful as the pictures on line. It wasn't----it was more beautiful! It was also an extremely comfortable house with wonderful amenities like terry cloth pillows for the pool lounges.

Since none of us in the group spoke Italian, Cecilia and Marco's wonderful English was very helpful in arranging dinner reservations and helping with a car that broke down. Their reccommendations for dining, wine tasting and off-the-beaten track sight-seeing
were great. The cook that they arranged for us made delicious meals and coped with several food allergies in a most thoughtful way.

It was a very special treat to spend time with family and friends in such a beautiful place.
