I just about blew it, not going - - - worn out from travel. Sadly, even exhausted, this is another one of those fantastic sites you would ache for not seeing. The gardens were perfectly maintained (how in the Hell do they do it this day and age) - - - it is located in a small town (one of...

I recently contacted Villa Gamberaia, as we had fallen in love with the idea of holding our wedding here in 2017. I spoke to a lady called Valentina, apparently the wedding planner ! Who originally, was actually quite helpful. We discussed price and dates and I agreed to get back to her once I'd spoken to my fiancé. After discussing...

Dear Miss. Emma P. , Usually we are not used to reply to the reviews on Tripadvisor, because we believe that any review it’s an important feedback for us and for the other costumers. In this case we decide to do an exception, because there is some wrong information. Any event at Villa Gamberaia it’s considered a special one, so...

Having seen Villa Gamberaia featured in Monty Don's series on Italian Gardens I was keen to see it for myself. On the day we visited my friend and I were able to enjoy the gardens completely to ourselves and what a pleasure it was. The only thing missing was that being before Easter the citrus trees were still overwintering in...

I was lucky enough to be part of the intimate circle of the family that hosted a most spectacular, extremely well thought through and executed wedding event in this extraordinary historic building and location.

We stayed at Villa Gamberaia for a week in June, in the Limonaia building. We were a group of 8, with a mixture of family and friends. Limonaia, we were told was the original villa built sometime in the 1500's, some of the elements from the original building are still present i.e. the huge fireplace in the kitchen, the shutters...

I first "viewed" the gardens of Villa Gamberaia 20 years ago in an article in a horticultural magazine. Despite numerous trips to Italy and Florence, I did not make the trip to this enchanting garden until October 2013. It was a dream realized and worth the harrowing trip up a very narrow road to the gardens. The day we were...
