8 What People Says

Mark Jun 20, 2013 18:06 The wonderful thing for our family was the privacy but also the proximity to some of the best towns in Chianti. Lovely shopkeepers, and your staff are also lovely and attentive.
Sandra Jun 20, 2013 18:06 Even on the warmer days, we chilled around the lovely pool looking out over the Montefioralle valley and the house always seemed cool and welcoming. The air con in the bedrooms was only needed one time during our entire stay and the views from the balconies and the front terrace were always very relaxing and made us feel chilled in other ways. We will be coming again!!!
Patricia Jun 20, 2013 18:06 We are foodies and apart from the great local markets and shops (we can`t forget Macelleria Falorni in Greve) in Greve and Panzano, we just had a wonderful time cooking in and around your house. Great kitchen, particularly the salami slicer and the gelato maker, and your wood burning forno was fantastic fun. Not to speak of the many BBQs. And then there was the wine... but that is another story!"
Micheal Jun 20, 2013 18:06 The villa just has it all. We were 5 couples looking for relaxation and also fun in the sun. And we had it all. The house, fienile and the pool are all so well integrated and so nicely renovated. And we were blessed with the best weather. We kept wanting to eat inside in your lovely kitchen and dining room, but ended up every meal eating outside on one of the three lovely terraces you have. Usually breakfast on one, lunch on another and finally dinner with that lovely west facing vista over Montefioralle in the sunset which seemed to go on forever.
Cindy Jun 20, 2013 18:06 We felt like we were living in a little part of Italy which had been undiscovered. Greve in Chianti is a great town and Mino`s wine bar and Dario`s restaurants in Panzano were fantastic. The local Conca d`Oro wines were a wonderful surprise, and the wineries we visited were superb - a lovely tour with lunch one day with your suggested host. But most of all, the tranquil and lived-in feel to the villa and granary made us feel right at home.
Barbara Jun 20, 2013 18:06 The villa is so much what we were looking for and we felt both private and well-looked after. Your caretaker and housekeeper provided everything we needed and whenever. Thanks so much for such a wonderful week of relaxation in your wonderful home.!
Wilson Jun 20, 2013 18:06 Villa gemma was so well-positioned for our holiday, close to Firenze and Siena and San Gimingano, and many good restaurants within a few minutes drive
Renee Jun 20, 2013 18:06 Villa Gemma was a villa beyond our wildest dreams - wonderful views, lovely accomodation of the highest standards. We were very well looked after!
