Overview

Description

Map

Barberino Val d’Elsa, 5km/3 miles with shops and couple of informal restaurants, lies along a beautiful road with views of the Colli Fiorentini 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, 25 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.

Reviews

The grounds are beautiful. Lined with Cypress trees and rose bushes - overlooking rolling hills and vineyards. There's a fire pit for a campfire under the stars. Very picturesque and of which Tuscan dreams are made! There's even apple trees where Maria, the villa owner/manager, picked apples to make us a homemade apple cake. Delish! Maria was the quintessential host. She welcomed us with a BBQ upon our evening arrival and SO much food that it lasted for several meals during the week. Extremely friendly, animated, accommodating and knowledgeable - she charmed us with stories and advice and it wouldn't have been as good of a vacation without her.

Our group of eleven friends enjoyed a wonderful stay at Villa d'Elsa in July 2018. The house itself is perfect for a big crowd, the pool delightful and the location, close to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and a host of small, quaint towns, is so convenient for day trips. Our hostess, Maria, gave us great dinner recommendations, reserved a winery tour for us in advance of our arrival, and led us on a market tour and cooking lesson, ending with a great traditional Italian meal at the villa. I can't say enough good things about the venue itself and having Maria as our guide for a fabulous week in Tuscany. We loved it!

We are 12 and post Brexit we needed holiday. This has been the most wonderful test nature week at Villa d’Elsa. This is a wonderful setting and so relaxing. We have had many adventurous trips to surrounding, tours of villages, test so delicious Tuscan food and the beer was always here provided by Maria at Villa d’Elsa. We have seen the most wonderful old villages with the most beautiful old buildings as the people have been so friendly. We love Agatha too!!

Arriving at Villa d’Elsa after a long and tiring day of travel, we were greeted by Maria and Maurizio. Soon my family—thirteen of us—were changed and enjoying the lovely infinity pool. How relaxing and energizing it felt for our group after doing “planes, trains and automobiles” for an entire day! We researched “Tuscany Now” very carefully before we finally decided on Villa d’Elsa. We were most interested in having a good location to visit the many beautiful cities, towns and villages throughout Tuscany. We made an excellent choice!!! Maria gave us a tour of the ancient Villa and made us feel so welcome in what would be “our” home for the next three weeks. Maria’s ability to speak fluent English was most helpful. The accommodations at the Villa were very comfortable. Maria made sure that everything was clean; linens changed regularly, air conditioners worked properly, and was always available to meet all of our needs. That first night Maria and Maurizio prepared a delicious barbeque meal that we enjoyed outside in the logia. We ate every meal outside—breakfast coffee to nighttime snacks! Daily we watched as more and more Sunflowers bloomed each day in the valley below. I could go on and on about the fabulous meals prepared for us, the recipes shared, the wonderful recommendations for restaurants, directions given, conversations about the Italian culture including the daily siesta--but most valued was the warmth of the entire family. We all wanted to bring Agatha home with us, and Pietro wanted us to adopt him!! Teaching Pietro baseball and Uno was so much fun. We arrived at the Villa as strangers—but left as great friends! We cannot thank them enough for their invaluable help in making our Trip of a Lifetime, become a Dream Come True. Steve and Barbara McGill Summer 2016

Maria, Maurizio, Pietro e Agatha We can't thank you enough for the incredibly warm hospitality and quiet generosity! We had such a wonderful two weeks with you all -a lot of food, swimming, cards, soccer and fun. It was a wonderful, relaxing, recharging vacation for us all and a large part was due to your care and lovely villa! Please come to visit California, we could try to return the hospitality! We will miss Pietro darling – hopefully he and Julian can become pen pals! Best always! Matt, Kara, Julian, Lucia, David – Stanford, CA, USA

Our trip to Tuscany had been promised to the family probably 5 years ago. I knew very little about the area having only been to southern Italy. I don’t know how I was so lucky to have chosen Villa d’Elsa for our family vacation. We have felt like a family from the time we met Maria. She is a most gracious host, not to mention a “five stars” chef. She has gone out of her way to make this a perfect week for all of us. It will be a perfect memory for my children and grandkids. We will miss you all including, Agatha, Peggy (Margaret), Cheney
