Imagine a stately stone farmhouse that’s just what a villa in Tuscany should be - a portal to the most beautiful countryside in the world. This family villa is situated on a 180 hectare farm, looking out over sunflower fields, hills and valleys. Here your guests will stay in one of four classic Tuscan apartments, each with an independent entrance and a kitchen - a perfect arrangement for an extended family or a small wedding party. The largest apartment has a grand sitting room for everyone to gather for a meal, or simple family time around the fireplace.

In the midst of the gardens you’ll find that the private swimming pool looks out over pristine farmland. On the shady, rustic loggia you’ll open a bottle of wine (or several!) and toast your great fortune, or have an intimate picnic on the ancient stone table on the hillside.

The nearest town is Cetona, a picturesque walled city on a hill with convenient shops and restaurants. San Casciano dei Bagni is a spa and hot spring destination you shouldn’t miss. And with Florence only 100 km hence, this holiday villa is in the heart of Tuscany.

Reviews

  • A wonderful family location

    Created on 20/02/2020

    We loved staying at the villa! It was a perfect vacation house for 10 adults and 1 toddler. Everyone had enough space and it was a great location for exploring cute towns nearby. We lounged by the pool, cooked wonderful meals in the kitchen, and ate every night on the patio overlooking the countryside. The hosts were wonderful and I'd highly recommend staying here.

  • Perfect location, perfect wedding!

    Posted by Talia on 12/10/2019

    Where do we start with this review! THE most incredible week of our lives, we first met Bea in March 2017 at her beautiful villa hoping to find our dream venue for our wedding and that we did and MORE! Bea also helped customise our wedding to create exactly what we wanted. We spent a year and half planning and organising everything together and nothing was too much for her! She had amazing contacts in the areas to make everything super authentic and traditional which is exactly what we wanted. We came back to Italy a couple of times to organise some bits but Bea had everything in hand, she introduced us to suppliers for our tables, chairs, cake, drink, car, ceremony..... EVERYTHING! We went for a lovely meal in Cetona with her and she even put us up for the night in her own home and cooked us a lovely breakfast in the morning for on one of our visits... like I said nothing was too much! We had a pizza party the night before our wedding at this villa with the pizza ovens which all our guests loved and then had our wedding in Cetona town hall the day after followed by a big party back at Villa Bello. The food was absolutely amazing and at a really good price and the wedding was just BEAUTIFUL! All of our guests couldn't believe the service and how gorgeous the Villa's where. The villa itself was just beautiful and in an amazing location! So clean and picturesque. The local town is just the most idilic little town we have ever visited and we have travelled all around Tuscany! The charm and history is second to none. I would highly recommend this villa to all friends and family! For big groups or small groups and especially to those of you out there looking for a bespoke customised tuscan wedding.

  • Wonderful wedding villa

    Created on 02/10/2019

    We had a fantastic stay in Villa Bello. We stayed one week with 15 members of our family and got married locally in a monastery and then back to the villa for a relaxed outdoor wedding meal (cooked by the fantastic Bea and her team). We enjoyed wonderful music by a duet from Florence. Bea helped us organise the wedding and the paperwork for the day- we had not visited the area or the villa but we felt confident the wedding would be great with Bea’s help. The villa was plenty big enough for us and our guests. Everyone was blown away by the scenery and we enjoyed spending our time at the villa and in the huge pool! The local area is stunning and the villages and towns are so beautiful. Staying in this area gives you a true sense of visiting the ‘real’ Italy away from too many tourists.

  • Forever in our heart

    Created on 16/08/2019

    Typical Tuscan farmhouse, nestled in the hills...Excellent structure, well organized, ideal for groups. Typical and very functional furnishings. Well organized kitchens with many utensils. Stunning panorama from every point of the house, swimming pool, terrace and huge garden allow you to enjoy peace and relaxation. The skyline remains in the heart. We spent an unforgettable holiday, a group of 20 people, 10 adults and 10 children. Promoted with flying colours. I would go back with my eyes closed

  • Fantastic! Highly recommend

    Posted by Bas on 17/07/2019

    A fantastic house in the middle of the Tuscan hills, with a beautiful garden!!! The view is amazing. Olive trees all around us. In the morning and evening you can spot some wildlife! We booked with a group. There is a lot to do around the house: a large pool, barbecue, pizza (wood)oven, table tennis, relax area with darts and toys. Also a great terrace for long lunches or dinners. Beatrice is a great host, we immediately felt very welcome! Everything is arranged for (e.g. pool towels) or can be serviced. Beatrice also is a GREAT cook! Don’t hesitate any longer, this is a true gem. Sit down, relax and enjoy your stay! Conclusion: Highly recommended!

  • Stunning Tuscan villa

    Created on 11/07/2019

    The pictures provided for this villa are beautiful. But, in person, the villa and the land it is situated on is even more stunning!! It was my first trip to Tuscany and it measured up and exceeded all expectations! Beatrice and Anna are the most hospitable, kind, and accommodating hosts. The pool was such a fabulous amenity in the warm Tuscan climate. I highly recommend staying at this villa and soaking up the beauty that it has to offer.

  • A Tuscan gem we will certainly revisit

    Posted by Julie on 01/11/2018

    When I organised accommodation for to Italy last month, I looked for a villa in Tuscany for the 8 night stay in the region. There are so many options for Tuscan villas and it can be very daunting making a choice. However when I finally settled on the Villa Bello, I could not have been happier with what our group received. The villa is large, comfortable and very good value for a group. The setting is beautiful...classic rural Tuscany and the people who run it are just wonderful. The fabulous catering provided by Beatrice was superb and made our stay there fabulous. I will be looking at promoting this beautiful part of Italy to my friends and network and hope to return in the future. Thank you to the owner, Anna, for such a memorable stay.

  • Beautiful, magnificent villa

    Created on 21/03/2018

    One of the best decisions I made about my wedding other than of course marrying my husband, was using/renting Villa Bello in the heart of Tuscany. I was a little wary of it because obviously, I was renting it from overseas and who knew what I was getting into, but I saw the pictures and they were beautiful. And then when we arrived, the pictures don’t even capture the stunning surroundings and the charm of the villas. Everything was so warm and welcoming and elegant and picturesque Tuscan scenery. Anna and Beatrice could not have been more helpful, they’re the sweetest people. They really went above and beyond, anything that we could have possibly asked for. I hope to have a long relationship with them and stay again in the future. We had 40 guests over about 4-5 days and we rented two villas and held various events, from brunches to our amazing dream wedding. They helped get us a band which was amazing, we had a DJ, everything was catered, everything was immaculate. We have some great pictures from our photographer, the villa was very secluded, there’s lots of privacy which is really nice, you really aren’t next to anyone, there are rolling hills in every direction, perfect picture spots - from brick backgrounds to swing with a pool, and lots of nature, vineyards, and sunflower depending on when you’re there, so timing is really important. Even though we did it at the end of October, the weather could have been more perfect. It’s a great spot for events, parties, getaways, weddings. I would recommend this forever to anyone. I can’t wait to go back. And, I really owe a lot to Anna and Beatrice it could not have been more amazing.
