Testimonials

June 2013

Our week the latter part of June at Villa Bianca could not have been more perfect. Villa Bianca is an absolutely beautiful villa in an ideal location in Tuscany - 30 minutes from Siena and Florence. Annagloria and Enzo, the owners, live next door, speak perfect English and are most helpful. The villa has all the amenities, especially a well stocked wine cellar with their own very reasonably priced chianti. Marta is a wonderful cook and also a great teacher - her dinners were delicious. Annagloria's roses were gorgeous and we enjoyed them throughout the villa. The pool and gardens were always perfect, thanks to Enzo. Annagloria's suggestions and directions were great and her recommendation for the restaurant Al Macereto was perfecto - a definite must. We had our children and grandchildren with us and everyone had a fabulous time.

Hi Lori. Sorry I am just now replying to the first email! My email has been messed up since we left. But I didn't care because we had the most wonderful Christmas vacation ever!!!!! Annagloria and Enzo are so wonderful and helpful. Their children were as well. They gave all 5 children presents during the week and for Christmas day. They decorated with a tree and nativity scene. The property is so beautiful and the town of Tavernelle is so close and the people so friendly. Each day either Enzo or Annagloria came to check on us and help us with directions and planning. The kids played soccer in the yard with their dog and played hide n seek in the olive groves. Marta the cook was wonderful. Cindy the tour guide was awesome. And Wynn the owner of al macerata( i think that was the name) was so gracious on Christmas day and the meal was Delicioso. Because of your and James's care and guidance and info our time was enjoyable not spent running around trying to figure things out. Y'all were a blessing to me and my family. Thank you so much I will fill out the survey ASAP. Ciao and auguri.

About this Villa

Villa Bianca is a lovely villa situated in the heart of Tuscany, in the Chianti area. The Villa is located in a valley rich in history near Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra and many other Medieval and Renaissance cities and towns.

Villa Bianca is part of a collection of three buildings. One of these is the home of the owner and her beautiful family. The villa has extensive grounds which include olive groves and vineyards typical of Tuscany. The large pool is located amidst olive trees providing a wonderful Tuscan atmosphere and pretty views of the softly rolling hills that surround the property. Villa Bianca has several pretty courtyards and well maintained gardens providing guests with several places to sit and enjoy the warm Tuscan sun or relax in the shade of olive trees. The villa is furnished with wonderful antiques, many passed down through the owners family. It also has the original handmade terracotta stone floors and the first floor has the traditional Tuscan ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. The warmth of your hosts radiates from the moment you arrive with their complimentary Tuscan welcome dinner and their graceful de facto concierge service. The hospitable family speaks fluent English and are always available to share their encyclopedic knowledge of local shopping gems, activities and restaurants! The villa can be rented with six bedrooms for a maximum of 12 guests, or with the adjacent cottage for a maximum of eight bedrooms. Please inquire.
