Reviews

  • Smooth sailing

    Posted by Kathy on 18/09/2019

    Couldn't have been any better. Loved every minute. Everything was smooth sailing. A perfect stay.

  • Absolutely fantastic!

    Posted by Judy on 06/08/2019

    Absolutely perfect. The view is amazing. The roads were a little tricky but you quickly get used to them. Close to so many charming little towns. The owners provide a wonderful book. It has everything you need to know. Everything was absolutely fantastic, professional yet full of hospitality and charm.

  • What an amazing stay

    Posted by Laura on 20/07/2019

    It was an amazing stay at Poggio Antico! For a once in a lifetime trip, I'm trying to figure out how to go again! The view was amazing but so was the villa. It truly exceeded our expectations.

  • Pictures do not do the scenery justice!

    Posted by Rachael on 17/07/2019

    My family and I had an amazing stay at Poggio Antico. The villa was perfect for 6 adults, each of us had our own room and bathroom (and my parents specifically appreciated having a bedroom on the first floor). Renata and Alessandro were excellent hosts. We also enjoyed the peace and privacy that the property offered. Our favorite part of the house was definitely the outdoor patio and pool - as we were able to enjoy all of our meals overlooking the beautiful scenery under some shade, and then relax by the pool under the sun. The pictures really don't do the scenery justice. There was nothing we didn't enjoy about the property. The beds and pillows were a bit firm but nothing that would deter us from renting again. We enjoyed morning walks exploring the surrounding area overlooking the grape and olive vines (it is very hilly, but we liked the exercise). I would definitely stay there again.

  • Magical, like being in a movie!

    Posted by Joan on 20/06/2019

    It was magical. When you arrive and open the gate, you are surrounded by roses, hydrangeas, geraniums (with colours I'd never seen) and olive trees. The Villa is furnished with gorgeous antiques, and remained cool even when the temperature hit the high 90's. Sitting out at the pool, and looking at the landscape was like being in a movie. The whole set up, from the terrace for outside eating, to the pool that overlooks the incredible landscape, to a kitchen that was a joy to cook in, to the inside that was a great place to relax in the evening. And, there is Alessandro. He's a charming host, and a wonderful cook. Our meal with him was a true highlight of the week. And, the WiFi was terrific, which was important to us.

  • It was simply excellent!

    Posted by Vicki on 06/06/2019

    In one word EXCELLENT. We had a great time hanging out by the pool or walking down the little lanes by the vineyards and olive trees taking in all the beauty. Alessandro the owner cooked us dinner one night and not only was it delicious we had a wonderful time and enjoyed every minute of that evening. We most enjoyed the scenic views. I'm a early riser and every morning there would be hot air balloons floating in the valley. It was spectacular. The house inside and out was meticulous. The small towns are beautiful, the people are friendly. The larger towns are so full of history and beautiful old buildings, again friendly people everywhere that are willing to help even though we spoke very little Italian.

  • So serene and relaxing

    Posted by Jillian on 05/06/2019

    It was absolutely amazing! My family and I will have memories that will last forever!! The villa was meticulously clean. The views were so amazing that it looked fake. I have no complaints! It was serene! So relaxing! Don't just book one meal with the owners - do it at least two nights! Everything was wonderful.

  • Fabulous!

    Posted by Virginia on 21/05/2019

    Our stay at Villa Raffaela was fabulous. The villa itself was lovely and the outside spaces and owners were accommodating and helpful. We loved the views and the outdoor eating space, as well as the areas around the pool. The owners made the process simple and we had no issues whatsoever.

  • Great views

    Posted by Tom on 23/10/2018

    Excellent - we had a great time. Felt like home, only with much better views. Easy proximity to towns, wineries, etc.

  • The beauty of the landscape was breathtaking

    Posted by Lucy on 20/10/2018

    It was fantastic and everything I hoped it would be. The villa is beautiful and looks exactly as the pictures show it. The setting is spectacular and looking out on the Tuscan countryside. It was amazing. The home is elegant but comfortable and we were a family of 5 plus a toddler. Renata and Allessandro are gracious hosts and made us feel welcome. The setting of the property and the comfortableness it gave us while still being elegant was wonderful. All of the amenities and the villa, both inside and out were great. Renata and Allessandro made us feel at home and were so gracious with our family and granddaughter. We met their son and dog Otto, whom our granddaughter fell in love with. I wanted to live like an Italian family and we did, thanks very much in part to our hosts and their home. Not sure there was anything I did not like about the property. Walking into Montagnana is a bit of a challenge and one we did not undertake due to having a toddler with us. The simple beauty of the landscape was breathtaking. We found getting to surrounding towns to be easy, even with the winding roads of the Tuscan countryside. I felt like I stepped into the movie "Under The Tuscan Sun". I would definitely stay there again.

  • An exceptional experience

    Posted by Gabrielle on 20/09/2018

    We loved Villa Raffaela. It was an exceptional experience. Our hosts were welcoming and gracious and made us feel at home immediately. The atmosphere at the villa is relaxing but the home is very well appointed. As 3 couples, there was plenty of room to spend time together, as well as space to enjoy being alone. There was nothing we disliked about the property. The overall feel is very rustic.

  • You will not be disappointed!

    Posted by David on 20/07/2018

    We had a fabulous time! Everything we were told about this property was true and then some! Absolutely a delight! We felt like this was a home away from home! Nothing was lacking and everything was exceptionally maintained and presented exactly as it was. Fabulous location, quiet, safe, well appointed! We toured throughout Tuscany and returned each evening to enjoy the pool, the veranda and the beautiful views! The only thing we didn't enjoy was the fact that we had to leave and return home! We received a warm and friendly reception everywhere we went! Trust that you won't be disappointed and have no fear in renting this beautiful villa! Hosts were delightful and couldn't be more accommodating or considerate.
