    Stunning place, highly recommended for a relaxing stay in the Sienese hills.

  • Beautiful & Impressive

    on 15/07/2020

    Hard not to find this villa both beautiful and impressive in equal measure. Well situated near the local town which has both great restaurants and supermarkets. Also close are several historic towns. Sienna and Florence an easy drive away, this villa is perfect for a Tuscan exploration. The staff are exceptionally helpful and the owner is on hand to answer any questions. She is very accommodating.

  • Family memories of a lifetime

    on 05/08/2015

    Villa Carli was the perfect setting for our family holiday. The villa is spectacular, the food by the chef and his staff is outrageous, the accommodations are luxurious and comfortable and the staff became like family immediately! The staff diligently tended to every need and want of our family of 25 which included 5 year old twins. Special attention to every detail was accomplished quietly behind the scenes and the results were amazing. We were pampered beyond compare!!! Room tip: Every room was beautiful and had it's own personality!

  • Beautiful Italian villa

    on 04/10/2013

    Villa Carli is a beautiful villa situated in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, between Siena and Florence, and is the ideal accommodation for anybody who loves nature and luxury. I had a wonderful experience! The villa is encircled by luxury gardens on top of a hill and enjoys a breathtaking view over Siena. The concierge explained to me that the main building, owned for centuries by one Roman aristocratic family, dates back to 1400 and was restructured with loving care during 1996, while additional construction was added between the 18th and 19th century, transforming the building into a splendid holiday villa in Italy.
    I had a wonderful experience in Villa Carli, the owners are very polite, the waiters are very good. I just love the Italian food and theirs is the best, there is a beautiful pool table and there is a big old mill. At Villa Carli they even organize activities. The villa its absolutely stunning; the furnishings are antique and very cured. The concierge speaks English perfectly and even the owners do. Villa Carli is the ideal place to spend your holidays in Tuscany. The villa has kept intact all its original charm: spacious and restful areas, pleasant and harmonious architecture, atmospheres of times gone by. I will certainly come again!!!!
