Beautiful house in rural Tuscany
Dennis and Gilly who own this property are wonderful. Even before we had arrived I had asked many questions, some requiring them to research things for us but nothing was too much trouble. We arrived late but they were both there to greet us and to help us settle in.
Although they live just next door they were never intrusive but always had a friendly word to say should we see each other.
The main house is magnificent, with just about everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. Whilst there I was also shown the other 2 smaller properties and they are equally well furnished.
The pool and grounds at our disposal were well kept and clean and regular visits from their inquisitive dog were welcome. Read More…
Pure Tuscan Magic
I doubt I can find words to do justice this beautiful place and the kindness and hospitality of Gilly and Dennis. I stayed four nights with my wife as part of an organised yoga holiday. The house is all stunning stonework and marble with exposed wooden beams. The views of fields, forests and most of all the nearby lake were exquisite, and the garden itself felt magical--landscaped yet unregimented, fulsome yet not overwhelming. Our visit was lucky enough to coincide with the annual appearance of fireflies in the evenings, in case final confirmation was needed that this was a truly magical place.
Gilly and Dennis were generous with their time, with information about the history of the farm and its buildings as well as about the local area. They are extremely knowledgable about the whole surrounding area of Tuscany and Umbria: they can tell point you to the best rustic country restaurants, bars and eateries with fantastic views, as well as medieval villages and the larger towns throughout the area.

Perfect Tuscany villa for a once in a lifetime trip!!
My husband and I and two other couples stayed for a week in the beautiful home of Dennis and Gilly. The pictures do not do the farmhouse justice. Beautiful views from all windows, impeccable furnishings, and a pool to do for!! We loved the big country kitchen for cooking our dinners with the fresh food we found each day at the local butchers. Our first night we had a lovely delicious home cooked Tuscan dinner by Gilly with great wine included!! It was like coming home. The location is very convenient to lovely walled towns around the area - especially Anghiari and Assisi!! Dennis and Gilly were a fount of information and so welcoming. We are going back!! Read More…
