“lovely villa with stunning views and great shared pool”
Reviewed 5 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent one week at Azzurra - its a lovely villa with really amazing views of the Tuscan countryside on 3 sides . Sunsets were beautiful . The pool is lovely ,also with amazing views all around. Shame there are only 4 pool loungers but there were 5 of us.
The villa is very well equipped . The beds are really comfortable and the kitchen / diner / living space nice but quite compact. We are a family of five and there is only space for 4 people to sit on the sofa and footstool which is the only downside . However as we spent most of our time outside this didn't really matter. There are several places to sit around the villa .
The kids enjoyed the DVD selection after a busy day sightseeing. The driveway to the villa was quite bumpy and I was worried about our hire car tyres but they were fine.

“Beautiful and relaxing”
Reviewed 28 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We spent the last stretch of our Tuscany vacation in Azzurra.We were absolutely marveled by the unobstructed panoramic view of the Tuscan hills, Volterra, and as far as your eyes can reach. Being away from the main road (less than 2 km) was a plus for us since we used the dirt road for late afternoon walks with the kids and blackberry picking. There are fields near by which were great for outdoor time for the kids.

The apartment is very comfortable, tidy and clean. We prefer home cooking and the kitchen is well equipped to do that: good pans, excellent gas stove, oven and microwave. The beds are comfortable. The doors towards the terrace make the apartment very airy and you can have a great view from every room. The garden is pretty and has herbs (rosemary and sage) which we used for cooking. The lavenders around the property fill the air and we simply loved it.

The apartment offers privacy, which we appreciated, and easy access to the pool which the kids enjoyed. The views from the pool are spectacular too and relaxing. The videos in the apartment provided enough entertainment during the only rainy day we had in Tuscany.

Prior to our arrival, Mary Ann emailed detailed information about the property and the area which was extremely helpful and saved us a lot of time. We would definitely recommend this apartment to friends (with or without kids) and would love to go back.

“Amazing Place”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This place is a real treasure in the heart of Tuscany. The villa is appointed to a very high standard with every amenity you could need to make your stay extremely comfortable without having to worry about anything at all. I can only repeat what the other reviews have said about the views that this villa affords you, they are truly spectacular, whether you are poolside or sitting on one of the three terraces! Every night we watched a beautiful sunset which we are already missing back in the UK. The location of the villa is perfect you are quite literally in the middle of the gorgeous Tuscan countryside which was is extremely peaceful and relaxing but within easy travelling distance for visiting many of the places of interest in Tuscany including Florence, Siena, Lucca and the hill towns of San Gimignano & Volterra. There are also plenty of restaurants nearby for eating out and a PAM supermarket which is well stocked in the town of Montaione about 20 minutes away by car. Even though there are 13 properties on this complex Azzurra is very private and it was never busy with each property having it's own sun loungers by the pool which we all thoroughly enjoyed especially the children who would have spent all day in there if they could. All in all Mary Ann has created a really beautiful holiday home and her attention to detail is exceptional from her initial communication & then the comprehensive information she forwards, to her call when you arrive. We all reluctantly left Azzurra but took with us so many fantastic memories from our 2 weeks we had the pleasure of staying there. We would definitely love to return in the future & can't recommend it highly enough!

“Exellent apartment in beautiful surroundings!”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We went to Azzurra a Family of five with kids aged 7, 11 and 13.
The Apartment is lovely and connected to a great pool area the kids loved. We really enjoyed making dinner and sitting on the patio outside the Apartment for our dinner rather than going out to restaurants because of the nice outdoor area of the Apartment.
The owners are great and provide good follow-up in advance, during and after our stay.

The location is really good for trips to the surrounding small tuscan villages. We recommend going to Volterra and San Gimignano in the immidiate surroundings and also the drive to Sienna is well Worth the trip.
The drive to Volterra is absolutely stunning!!

Azzurra is a beautiful, updated and overall wonderful farmhouse apartment. The views from the property are stunning. It is very clean and well equipped. We could not have enjoyed our stay any more. I would highly recommend the property.

“Surpassed our expectations”

We were extremely pleased with the accommodation, we were expecting it too be very nice, but it surpassed our expectations in everyday. The pictures don't do it justice. The views were spectacular, the gardens were lush and absolutely gorgeous. The apartment was spotless and very well equipped. The bedrooms were very comfortable, from the beds to the linens, we all slept like babies. We really couldn't have asked for anything more. Mary Ann was extremely helpful, supplying us with all the information we needed to get around and enjoy our stay. I would definitely go back and will recommend it to friends and family.

“Tuscany and Azzura are so well matched, simply brilliant!”
Reviewed 28 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

people found this review helpful

I have returned to Azzura several times now wanting to explore more and more of the beautiful Tuscan cities, towns, villages and spectacular countryside. First is a fact that Azzura is well situated within easy reach of Pisa (airport) by road and nicely placed to visit Siena, Florence and the world heritage site of San Gimignano to name just a few. It's a great gateway to a host of beautiful villages and also to rest, relax and enjoy the spectacular views.
The accommodation is extremely well appointed with air conditioning for those that visit during the summer months and comes with all those amenities that make life comfortable that are often missing from rented properties. Built in Tuscan style with wrap around spectacular views that almost makes you want to stay rather than discover Tuscany. I have no hesitation whatsoever recommending Azzura to anyone wanting to visit this beautiful part of Italy.
