“An authentic Italian villa in beautiful countryside for the perfect Tuscan experience”
Reviewed July 13, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The Villa at La Pianella Estate provided the perfect retreat for our family holiday with plenty of space for all seventeen of us! It is a beautiful secluded villa perched on the hillside with fantastic views down the valley. There is plenty to keep everyone entertained with the swimming pool, tennis court and table tennis table but also makes a great base for exploring the historic cities and idilic countryside of Tuscany. The villa is well equipped with everything you could need in the kitchen to cater for a large group but for a break from cooking I highly recommend taking advantage of the catering services of Donatella and her daughter Sonia for fabulous authentic Italian cuisine. Clare and Mary-Ann were both so helpful making arrangements and generous with their time to discuss plans and advise on what to do and where to go. This is a great place to stay in a beautiful part of the world and I would definitely recommend it.

“A Tuscan Dream for a large group”
Reviewed July 12, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

La Pianella ticked all the boxes when we were looking for a large Villa in Tuscany as a place for our four families of 16 people to spend some precious time together. Claire and Mary Ann were very helpful and efficient with all the booking arrangements and when we arrived at the Villa it was even more lovely than we expected! It is a perfect place to spend time relaxing with a large group. The Villa is very well equipped with everything you might need for your stay. The pool is large and clean, although rather a lot of steps to get up there! We had a great deal of fun with some remote control radios we had with us messaging up from those down by the villa to those up at the pool! At night the fireflies were all over the grassy banks and were magical. The younger members made full use of the tennis court which was fabulous. Plenty of rackets and balls available too. Donatella and Sonia were lovely and cooked for us a couple of nights,including by special request a 'celebration cake' . We also used the barbecue and had a great deal of fun having a pizza night using the pizza oven.
When we reported a leak in one of the bathrooms the owners were very quick to send someone out to sort it out. In all we would highly recommend La Pianella, We all left with some wonderful memories of our time together. We would also highly recommend Andrea from Tuscan Drivers who arranged a winery tour for us and his lovely father who insisted on carrying my suitcase right up to the check in desk at the airport as I was flying back on my own!. Hope to come back one day.
