Imagine a villa in Tuscany: the verdant rolling hills, olive groves and grapevines. You’re dining alfresco in a loggia perched above it all, with age old wisteria framing the view. It sounds like a fantasy, but at Villa Dania it’s real. This 5 bedroom 19th century home has been lovingly restored by the owners, adding modern amenities while preserving the villa’s fine historic details.

This family villa invites connection and conversation; sit with friends by the pool, under the arbor, or inside under a fresco (yes, really). All that’s missing is a glass of good Tuscan wine. Thankfully that can be found in Fabbrica, a small town with groceries, cafes, restaurants, and a pharmacy within easy walking distance.

Tuscany’s most important cultural centers are nearby. A trip to Volterra (25 km) is a must for any history buff. This Bronze Age settlement was one of the "twelve cities" of the Etruscan League - and remains a living museum of history, art, and architecture. You might fly into the nearest airport in Pisa, only 45 km away. Or if you're taking the train instead, you'll catch it in Pontedera (25 km), a city known for wine and chocolate production.

Reviews

  • Wonderful accommodation

    Posted by Emilia P on 23/05/2020

    A superb base for a relaxing and peaceful holiday, situated near the gorgeous cities of Tuscany. Wonderful accommodation and helpful owners: it was perfect.

  • Made to feel completely at home

    Posted by Terry on 18/04/2020

    Amazing villa with comfortable accommodation for 12 of us and a luxury feel. Full of grandeur and spectacular views with great outdoor space and pool. Made to feel completely at home by the hosts and with local shops and cafe opposite felt part of village life too. Loved the extra touches like a boules pit and a swing for the kids. If we’d stayed longer we’d have spent more time at the villa but it is within easy drives of Florence and Pisa so had to tick them off first. Loved it!

  • Exceeded our expectations

    Posted by Lexie S on 16/08/2019

    The photos represent the villa perfectly. It was very clean and beautifully decorated. We were a party of 12 and this villa was fantastic!! It exceeded our expectations. We loved sitting out by the pool in the evening. The owners were very welcoming and made sure that we had everything that we needed. They were very helpful and arranged a wonderful dinner for us. It was situated very well for day trips to the most important cities of Tuscany. Thank you very much.

  • Already planning our return

    Posted by Dorgar on 24/07/2019

    Just fantastic! Warm welcome to a fabulous villa. Exceeded our expectations! Best view in Tuscany. We cooked dinner each night in the large, well-equipped kitchen or on the courtyard grill. The pool was beautiful and cleaned on alternate days (as were all outdoor areas). There were 5 bedrooms with nice linens and towels (1 was on the ground floor with bath (shower), two baths are upstairs - 1 with shower and tub and 1 just with shower. Screens and AC in the upper 4 bedrooms as well as the kitchen, library, breakfast and dining rooms. Nights were cool, so we didn't use AC the entire time. Located in a small village with a cafe and shops for the basics (like cheap, good Chianti). Major shopping can be done at Conad (in Capannoli) grocery store on the way from Florence or Pisa. You can get a quick lunch at the store's cafe. Pastas were really good! Pizza night on Wednesdays at an Agriturismo farm. Best bread I've ever had. We are already planning our return.

  • 100% recommend this villa

    Posted by Anna María Sveinsdóttir on 25/06/2019

    Villa Dania is a great place to stay in and relax, the view in the backyard is terrific and the place outside is absolute great the swimming pool and that area around. It is very clean and good space inside.The neighbourhood is fantastic, you can get everything you need, new baked bread every morning in the grocery store, you can go to the butcher and buy a steak and at least you can go to the bar at lunch time and get a cold beer on draft :) All the people around are so friendly, I would 100% recommend this Villa to stay in.
    We would like to thank you for the Villa rental, it was a great vacation very nice place the house and the garden is absolute fantastic we were so happy with our week in your house... the neighborhood is so friendly and nice all the people around so nice. Thank you very much.

  • Incredible week

    Posted by Karin on 22/06/2019

    Villa Angelica is amazing!! Set in an great location in Tuscany, with incredible views, and with a great pool and outdoors area to enjoy lovely outdoor lunches and dinners. We had the whole villa for 13 people, and loved our stay in the house and to enjoy the small village of Fabricca (like running across the road to pick up groceries in the shop, ice cream at the bar, or aspirin in the pharmacy). Thank you Francesco and family for an incredible week at a stunning Villa Angelica!
