Hi Lori and James,Ann B. Chatham N.J. Acquabuona
I am sorry for the delayed response however after being away for a month it has taken this long to get things somewhat back in order. We would like to thank you both for helping us achieve what has turned out to be a dream vacation. Both villas were wonderful and the people we met connected with both were not only accommodating in whatever needed to be loved after , but personally delightful . We would never for an instant hesitate to return. We have already recommended both villas and you might have already heard from one party. I am sure we will return and will definitely contact Via Villas of Italy first .
Again many thanks for your advise , and information to all questions it is and was greatly appreciated.
This was my second time staying at Colle Aperto and this visit was just as wonderful as the first! In fact, the upgrades and updates that have been made to the property since my first visit only add to the overall wonderful experience! The property is spectacular and very comfortable. Every day, we felt torn between going out and visiting the surrounding hilltop towns and staying behind to enjoy the property! Graziella is a gem and really makes the overall experience one-of-a-kind. The meals she lovingly prepared and her overall willingness to make the visit as wonderful as possible were such a huge part of the fantastic memories that will carry us until our next visit!Eric H. Indianapolis, IN Colle Aperto
Love this property. It has everything. It's closeness to everything makes it an ideal location in the heart of Tuscany. I only hope it's not 8 years until I get back there again. Gabriele was great.Sam P. Thousand Oaks CA Loggia
We loved the Villa and the location of the Villa. It was close to everything. The only negative comment I could make was that no one told us about the ants. On our first night we left out a lot of the groceries we ordered on the counter and in the morning the kitchen was swarming with ants. After we realized about the ants we were able to control it. The information sheet and the instructions we received before we arrived were fabulous. It included everything and was most helpful. We used it throughout our trip. James was the best, always professional, helpful and responded to my emails immediately. We loved Daisy, she was fabulous and really took care of us. I will be sure to use VIA VILLAS of ITALY again and will recommend it to all my friends. Our trip was fabulous and we thank you for everything.Juliana P. Mechanicsburg PA Acquabuona
The villa was just perfect.Anahid V. Chapel Hill NC
Also your staff there…Roseanna and Luigi our driver were absolutely terrific.Luigi took us to Pompeii and even arranged a guide for us there. Also I had a small medical problem and he went to a pharmacy in Sorrento for me to pick up my medicines. He was amazingly available and between him and Roseanna they made our stay so comfortable and tended to many little needs we had which was so helpful. We were 100% delighted with our stay.
Also the information you sent us about the area and other travel tips were extremely helpful.
I hope we will be able to travel to Italy again soon and if and when that happens we will certainly try and rent a villa again. In the meantime I will happily recommend your company to anyone I know traveling to Italy.
Ciao ciao e grazie mille,
It was terrific -the setting, the view,the decor, the villa itself. Our expectations were exceeded. Babeth and Daniella were delightful. So helpful to have Babeth check in everyday and make valuable suggestions and reservations. The exercise room (with the million dollar view) was much appreciated.Bonnie G. Somerset PA La Sevilliana
Nancy and I really enjoyed the apt especially the view from the terrace. The unit was very clean and bed was comfortable. The location of the unit was perfect and the entire building was manicured perfectly.John N. Naples FL Bellavista
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Olivi and look forward to a return visit in the future. The house is magnificent and suited our group perfectly. We enjoyed our dinners with Gianna and Errico. Julia was absolutely the best that we could ask for in a housekeeper.Joseph S. Philadelphia PA Casa Olivi
Absolutely idyllic! We could not imagine a better place to celebrate our 50th anniversity with our family.Lance H. Meadowbrook PA Villa Valeria
Dear Lori and James,
We had a fabulous time and loved every second we were blessed with our visit to Casa San Giovanni. Thank you for working with us through the reservation process and details related to the visit.
Frederica was a delightful hostess and immediately set the tone for our experience in San Giovanni D'Asso and the surrounding Tuscany villages. We thoroughly enjoyed our cooking class and thought it gave us a deeper sense of Tuscan cuisine. The kids loved being part of the "class".Mimi C. Eagle ID Casa San Giovanni
We hope someday we can revisit Casa San Giovanni.
We had the pleasure of staying at the Casa San Giovani this past summer. I can't even begin to express how utterly perfect it was. The hostess was beyond charming and the house and property were spectacular. My expectations were high - and was completely overwhelmed by it. I believe everyone shares in my thoughts. It was just spectacular. Grasia (the cook) was unbelievable as well. We took a lesson from her and it was a highlight of the trip.
The pool was perfect for the kids. It was fairly close to every little town we wanted to visit.
We look forward to going back to Italy again soon and would certainly use you all. Plus we like the fact that you are located right here in Philly.
The experience could not have been more "Tuscan".
Just thought I would share.David Y. Downingtown, Pa Casa San Giovanni
We loved the villa and the location. The villa was very comfortabe, well appointed, and the perfect setting for us. Kalinka was extremely helpful with assisting us with lost luggage and acting quickly on the broken sewer pipe. We had a great time!!! Thank you for all your assistance during the entire process. We loved the wine tour, lunch, and Mrs Grazelle.Sheila P. Metairie LA Villa Valeria
The Villa was wonderful. I would so recommend this to anybody that would prefer to stay in a Villa versus a hotel.Nancy D. Fargo ND Villa Angela
Villa Anna is a wonderful property well situated as a base for Tuscan travels. The views are breathtaking and the home is very welcoming and comfortable. The owners are extremely helpful and informative. It is an ideal location that makes one instantly feel part of a community.David R. Westport CN
The villa was terrific..... Marcella, Elisa and the staff were terrific and most helpful Marcella's meals were better than those in the best restaurants in Italy!!! And we want to send them all a big THANK YOU for taking such good care of all 16 of us. They made our 50th celebration more special than imaginable.
Just a thank you to you both for the prompt reply to my endless emails. We had a BALL in the most beautiful Tuscan countryside.Sonya K. Ponte Vedra Beach FL La Casaccia

It was so perfect, the staff, the weather, the flowers, the food.
