L'alloggio

Villa d'Elsa
Sleeps: 14+2
RATES:
We only rent the villa as a private place to one group of guests (family or friends) at a time, being the only residents, the quality and privacy of their stay is guaranteed.

The minimum stay is 7 nights in high season(May/October) and 3 nights in low season ( November/March)

The weekly rates in low season are variable depending on the number of bedrooms used by the guest.
In case the guest do not rent all the 7 bedrooms the unused bedrooms stay empty and closed; the other area of the villa (swimming pool, garden, kitchen, living room, dining room etc.) remain private to the guest.

LOCATION
Barberino Val d’Elsa, 5km/3 miles with shops and couple of informal restaurants, lies along a beautiful road with views of the Colli Fio(SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) on one side and the Val d’Elsa on the other. A hilltop village that has grown beyond its original walls, it has a lovely "centro storico" as do dramatically-sited Certaldo, 18 minutes to the west, and San Gimignano, 20 minutes to the south-west. Florence is quickly reached along the motorway, 35 minutes, but the slower route through the Chianti Classico region on the Via Chiantigiana, 25 minutes, is one of the loveliest drives in Italy.


INTERIORS/Our Comforts

Villa d’ Elsa is a Tuscan villa dating back from early 1900’s. It is in a totally secluded environment which offers absolute peace and quiet with spectacular views of the surrounding hills.
It took 1 and a half year of renovation to get the villa where it is now, but for us it was imperative to keep the same Tuscan style and charm. All improvements have taken environmental aspects into great consideration in addition with modern comforts.
On the first floor the villa has 6 double bedrooms with wood beamed ceilings and terracotta floors, satellite TV and Sky, WIFI internet access ( available to those with their laptop) 4 bathrooms. Moreover 4 bedrooms have a nice loft with a cosy sitting area.
Downstairs you have 1 double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom suitable for handicapped people; entrance hall with half bath also suitable for disabled people, laundry room with washer and dryer.
On the ground level you also have a large living area with fireplace, well equipped open plan kitchen and dining room with doors to furnished patio.
The large private outdoor area has many different possibilities and features garden furniture, barbecue and large pergola; an ideal spot for outdoor dining in the shade as well as a wonderful space to meet friends.
The private grounds boast the infinity pool, ( 18X6m) with one section (3X9m) for children.
The pool area also features a Jacuzzi hot tub (4 seats), wooden sun deck with shaded area.
Surrounded by lawn, woods and cypress trees, the villa offers total privacy and relaxation.

THE STORY OF THE VILLA

Villad'Elsa was an abandoned peasant’s house when I and my husband discovered it ten years ago. A wrong turning while riding our motorbike led us to a fortunate event.
The true feeling of peace and tranquillity, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, made us decide that it was the perfect place to devote our life to hospitality as an opportunity to share our passion for ancient traditions.
We have previously run a quite large resort, but it was too big to be able to take special care of every single guest. Villa d’ Elsa instead has the right size to offer customized service and great attentiveness to our guests needs.
The same attention to details and all the lessons learned from the former job have been used to make Villa d’ Elsa as pleasant as our guests would expect it to be.
We will be always available to offer our assistance, advice and guidance to help you discover this wonderful corner of the world and its culture; but also and above all we want to show you that there is a place in the world where it is still possible to experience the rhythms of nature.
Let‘s leave the daily routine behind for a moment and instead let the nature surrounding Villa d’ Elsa take you a step back in time. Let‘s stop a while to enjoy to the full the things, the images, the colours ….the silences.
Here deep in the Tuscan countryside time really does seem to stand still.
Breathe our air, enjoy our family atmosphere, taste the flavour of our wonderful food and wine!

Let Villa d’Elsa be YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME

Villa d’ Elsa is the ideal answer for those who want a vacation that combines the pleasure of relaxation in a corner of silence and discovering Tuscany with its unique history art and good food. I and my husband Maurizio with our two girls Nicole and Giulia welcome guests with the sincere hospitality characteristic of the Tuscan rural lifestyle. As we like to maintain our reputation for hospitality we both work and live here in the annexe barn to make sure your holiday will be an unforgettable one.
Our guests will particularly enjoy the ancient and peaceful atmosphere, perfect for al fresco dinners arranged, on request, by myself with the preciuos help of my two daughters.
I will also be pleased to organise cooking classes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings starting with a trip to the local open air market and ending with a wonderful traditional Tuscan dinner cooked in the villa.
A pergola sits in front of the villa just outside living room furnished for dining with a barbecue while lending to the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside through cypress trees.

Great villa in a perfect location to explore Tuscany with a super friendly host. The villa is set in acres of private land with an outdoor dining area under shade with views over the countryside. The pool is long enough to swim lengths (about 17m) with 8 beds under shade (or sun) by the side. The mosquitoes bothered quite a few of our group, so take spray. But this was the end of August, so it may not be the case all year round. Inside the rooms are all spacious, most with great en suites, and the furnishings all top quality. Within an hours drive we saw Florence, San Gimignano, Sienna, Voltarre, Monteriggiano and enjoyed them all. We flew to Pisa which was about 90 minutes away. Maria is a super host and her cooking lesson was voted the best out of the many our family had done. The meal she cooked for us was excellent, like a restaurant at home. One of our best holidays and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Maria was an absolute pleasure and she and her family really made our Tuscany experience incredible. The villa, pool and view were amazing but having Maria next door was the best part. She was responsive from the moment we inquired about the villa and that continued through our stay. She is such a talented chef and host. She cooked for us 3 times and we loved every meal. She did everything she could to make our experience the best it could be (including making restaurant reservations, going on an initial grocery run, etc). Our boys loved playing with her son, Pietro. I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Villa d'Elsa!

Villa d’Elsa is to me, a lifetime dream come true! The chance to combine my two great passions: hospitality and cooking.
Sorry I am not a certificate to boast! But simply a typical Italian woman who is very passionate about cooking.
My mother and my grandmother before me, were excellent cooks and I started learning my skills at an early age.
I enjoy “making people happy with my meals”!
I will welcome you into my home to share my love for Tuscan cooking. In an informal environment you will learn the love of the Italian kitchen and have fun doing it.
I believe that the only way to learn to cook is to do it yourself! You will partake in preparing your evening meals and while I will demonstrate the techniques, be prepared to roll up your sleeves and put what you have seen into practice!
The cooking lesson is informal, the dishes to be performed are planned based upon the season harvest. We will go together to the town market on Thursday morning and select the freshest ingredients according to your particular tastes. I am flexible and willing though to add those special dishes you always wanted to learn to make!
Then dine on your creations accompanied by delicious Tuscan wines to compliment the dishes.
Basic Italian cooking techniques to prepare simple yet delicious dishes that can easily be made once you go back home to share your Tuscan experience with your friends and family!!
