I traveled with my family for my mothers 60th birthay last june and Villa Cristina blew us away. It is very well equipped for a family stay and for everyone that wants to visit. Great place for kids and adults to stay together.
The pool is large, clean and beautiful with a great gazebo behind it. From the pool you have a spectacular view of Arezzo. Inside there is a bathroom inside every room which makes it a perfect place for a large group, there is privacy in every room.
The kitchen is very well eqiupped and there is even an outside kitchen with a wood fire oven which we made pizza in which tasted great. There is a PS2 for the kids if needed and the local red wine which they make is also very good. We ordered a local chef to cook two meals over the week we stayed and we highly recommend doing that.
Nicola and everyone who hosted Villa Cristina were also great and helpful.
This is an incredible place to stay in a beautiful environment in Tuscany and you wont regret going there.
Villa Cristina exceeded our expectations. We had one week in this well maintained beautiful estate. The setting is spectacular, the rooms well appointed, the beds comfortable, the kitchen well appointed, the view stunning and the pool perfect. The outdoor dining/lounging facilities were put to good use.
My only regret is not staying longer, however, we plan to return since one week was simply not enough for Tuscany and Villa Cristina was a wonderful home to come to after a day exploring the surrounding villages and Florence.
