  • Everybody loved it!

    on 17/02/2024

    We stayed there for a weekend and celebrated our wedding there. Everybody loved it! Vera, Dario and her whole team are extraordinary. Everything was perfect and the villa itself is designed with much love. You will see the most amazing sunsets. Thank you again, Vera & Dario for making our vision and wishes of a wedding become reality

  • The most beautiful wedding we could have imagined

    on 03/02/2024

    We celebrated our wedding at Villa Monte Nero in July 2023 and had the most beautiful wedding we could have imagined. Incredible sunsets, beautiful Villa, amazing pool and also the catering/food throughout our stay was really great. Many thanks again to Dario and Vera!

  • A beautiful wedding day

    on 07/10/2023

    We celebrated our wedding here in September and were overwhelmed by the beauty of this place! Dario & his team did a wonderful job, making us feel right at home and organizing a beautiful wedding day for us. The food is delicious, the views are epic and the rooms are very comfortable. Would do it again immediately!

  • Wonderful experience

    on 02/07/2023

    Wonderful experience and a marvelous view of the surrounding countryside. Very nice pool area and spa. A bit difficult road to get there, but absolutely worth it when you do. Highly recommended if you are in the area or have any plans to get married!

  • Large, with views and notch amenities

    on 20/05/2023

    My husband and I are from Vancouver, Canada. We booked the villa for our Tuscan wedding weekend. The property is large with expansive countryside views and top notch amenities. The owners were very responsive and answered all of our questions leading up to the weekend. We hosted a rehearsal dinner that they catered, and the wedding day went according to plan with the help of their services. It was more beautiful than imagined. The setting was elegant and romantic, perfect for our 40 person event. We will be back in the future!

  • Absolutely fabulous

    on 02/04/2023

    Absolutely fabulous in every way... thank you Vera x

  • Attention to detail went above and beyond!

    on 20/04/2020

    We spent an amazing week at this wonderful villa. Dario and family made our stay so memorable. The food was delicious, the house was beautiful, the scenery second to none. We had a very casual wedding ceremony that was made so much better by their attention to details that were never requested. Totally above and beyond. We will be back.

  • True Tuscan hospitality

    on 20/04/2020

    We had the most epic stay at this beautiful Tuscan villa. Nestled just outside the charming city of Volterra, Villa Monte Nero is the perfect place for larger groups, events and/or weddings. We were celebrating a dual 40th birthday event with 15 adults. All 9 rooms have their own bathroom and the common spaces are amazing! 2 HUGE dining rooms, a comfortable living room, a well-stocked kitchen, outdoor dining space, a beautiful pool, hot tub, a pizza oven, gorgeous grounds and the most amazing view. We even got to hang with 2 local (super-friendly) farm cats who made us feel right at home. The owner/host Dario was lovely to work with while planning our stay. He speaks very good English. He also runs a catering company so he provided a wonderful welcome dinner and breakfast for us each morning (for a nominal extra charge). His mother cooked us the best meal we had in Tuscany, nothing like an Italian mother’s home cooking! Dario also had suggestions for local tours and they were just a great as the villa. He was always available if we needed anything - top notch service all the way.

  • The most incredible holiday ever!

    on 15/08/2019

    The property itself is beautiful and the hosts even better! Set in the picturesque Tuscan hills with the most incredible sunsets every night. The villa has been restored to a high standard and every bedroom is stunning with great views. The food provided is exceptional and Dario took care of our every need. We had our wedding there and we couldn’t have asked for any more. It was perfect.

  • Our Perfect Marriage

    on 31/07/2018

    Fantastic villa with spectacular views. We got married here and everything that the owners delivered- the food, the decor, the dancefloor - was superior quality. Communication in the run up was excellent too. I would highly recommend this place to anyone getting married or having a large group holiday.

  • Spectacular

    on 17/07/2018

    Spectacular location with the most attentive, caring hosts. Everything was perfect!

  • Incredible stay

    on 29/08/2017

    If you are looking for an incredible place to stay in Tuscany with a larger group with incredible views, fantastic hospitality, amazing food and a beautiful home and pool. Then this is your spot. The house is fantastic and is best enjoyed with Dario's mum doing your meals every night. It was incredible and they worked with us regarding every aspect of our trip. They were amazing and we couldn't recommend them highly enough!
