“Perfect Tuscan Villa - Believe the Reviews”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in May 2016

This is a long overdue review of our stay in May. We were a group of 9 - two families with adult children travelling together. Villa Carda was spectacular. The views and the grounds are incredible. Meticulously maintained. It was a great location to explore Tuscany. We visited Arezzo, Siena, Cortona, Florence, Montepulciano, Pienza and Poppi. As other reviewers mentioned, one of the highlights was a fabulous dinner prepared by Andrea & Francesca which they so kindly prepared for us even though they had a new baby at home! Although it is doable we did not walk to Carda or Castel Focagnano for dinner. We always drove. We had wonderful pizza from the restaurant in the town of Castel Focagnano and also dinner there our last evening. Another nearby restaurant which I recommend was Osteria Il Toscano in Rassina. Andrea could not have been easier to deal with or more helpful. He arranged for our breakfast pastries to be delivered everyday (croissants filled with cream, nutella or jelly and only 1.00 Euro!). He even ordered and picked up himself and delivered to the Villa a birthday cake for our son. Andrea & Francesca are truly two of the nicest people you will ever meet. It was everything we hoped our vacation would be. I only wish it had been longer!

“Fabulous Villa Carda !!”
Reviewed 30 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

We are about to start packing to return home...and will be very sad to leave this beautiful villa..
Our trip was to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and this was the perfect choice, the villa has everything you could possibly need for a wonderfully relaxed holiday.
We made very good use of the heated pool, the jacuzzi & the steam room. A perfect place to sit with a drink and watch the sun rise and set.
Andrea and his lovely father were both so helpful and kind, thank you again to Andrea for cooking us dinner on our arrival while we got ourselves unpacked...above and beyond !
From this beautiful base we explored Florence, Arezzo and Rome.
There are good restaurants in the local area and a large Coop in Bibbiena for groceries.
We had a perfect week and would happily recommend this villa to everyone.
Thanks again Andrea x

“Magical Stay”
Reviewed 29 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Our stay at Villa Carda in early August was truly magical. The property is beautiful and its amenities are just as described. All of the bedrooms are spacious and are stylishly fitted out, as is the rest of the villa. Each member of our party of 10 enjoyed every minute there and made excellent use of the other facilities on hand at the villa - the beautiful swimming pool, the wellness centre, the table tennis, the barbecue, the private cellar and so the list goes on. The other highlight was the private dinner prepared and served by Andrea and Francesca. A wonderful evening with excellent food and such lovely hosts. The location of the villa is very private and away from the hustle and bustle which we all appreciated. Outings however to the lovely nearby towns of Poppi, Bibbiena and Arezzo were easily doable, whilst longer trips to Siena and Cortona and Montepulciano were also very happily accommodated. All in all, a wonderful week in a beautiful villa in idyllic surroundings. We could not have wanted for more and would highly recommend to others. Thanks again to Andrea and family!

“Tuscan luxury”
Reviewed 12 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

A wonderful place to stay and enjoy the friendliness of the hosts, the amenities of the villa and the company of 10 friends celebrating 60th birthdays in style.
Enchanting views from every window. Both large and small spaces to facilitate group gatherings or quiet solo times. Fabulous pool and jacuzzi to enable complete relaxation when taking a rest day from exploration of local towns and villages.
Gourmet " in house" meal prepared by Francesca and Andréa is a must.

“Tranquillity in Tuscany”
Reviewed 31 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

The welcome awaiting us was just the best; the owner had the home fire burning, plenty of candles adorning the rooms flickering gently on arrival and a home cooked meal that was comparable to a Michelin Starred restaurant.......genuine people wanting to offer the best experience for their guests. The house is splendid, 'vintage Tuscan' I would describe it, with all the comforts that you would need for modern acceptance of good accommodation....I spent my days roaming the grounds and following the cycle track (scoring ahead of challenges on the FitBit) - the grounds and local area are fantastic for hiking or mountain biking. Andrea, the owner was superb with his guidance on the 'how to' get from A to B (we visited Rome, Florence, Sienna, Piza and plenty more places whilst using Villa Carde as our base) and what better way to unwind after visiting the sites than kicking back in the purpose built wellness centre in a bubbling jacuzzi - the steam room was fab too. If you're on the brink of deciding whether to book this, let me take the decision away from you and suggest you just do it - you will not have regrets.

“Tantalising Tuscan Villa... The perfect Christmas getaway!”
Reviewed 30 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

I don't even know where to start as the whole experience was so great that I'm even excited to be writing this review! When I booked this beautiful villa I like always was skeptical about it being authentic etc...
Andrea (The Owner) made me feel totally comfortable with the booking process and answered all my questions. He was trustworthy and fair and made everything easy. My Mother wanted to do a couple of wine tours and Andrea booked them in for us. They were beautiful and she really enjoyed them! Prior to arrival Andrea requested our flight info and arrival time to the villa, plus navigation co-ordenates so we didn't get lost. These lead us right to the gate of the villa where we were greeted by Andrea.
We off loaded the luggage and Andrea showed us around the villa and explained how everything worked. While this was going on Andrea's wife Francesca prepared us a beautiful Tuscan meal (we pre-booked for this 40 euros per adult) which was worth every penny! Once we had chosen our rooms we sat down for dinner which was fantastic, 5 courses & very filling toped of with some lovely wine. Andrea & Francesca cleaned up and we all settled in and got ready for bed. Andrea reassured us that he was on hand if we needed anything and left us to it. We had full use of everything, the jacuzzi in the health spa was a real relaxing and the grounds surrounding the villa were breathtaking. If you're looking for space and beautiful scenery then this is the place! You'll be in safe hands with Andrea and his beyond beautiful villa.

“Holiday of a lifetime!”
Reviewed 13 December 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our week in Villa Carda was absolutely perfect. It lives up to all of the reviews, looks exactly like the photos and is simply wonderful.
We had a group of 12 people for a 50th birthday from all over the world - most of us from New Zealand - and everyone universally loved Villa Carda. The rooms are exquisite, the grounds fabulous, the views and the scenery lovely too.
Andrea is a fabulous host, just a phone call away when we needed him and always helpful.
We had Andrea and Francesca cook for us on two night, we had one Gluten Free (Senza Glutane) and one Vegan in the group and everyone loved! the food, simple Tuscan food yet so amazing.
Our favourite things were the pizza oven, the fruit in the garden, so much to do with golf, the pool, table tennis, spa, sauna, gym or just sitting in the sunshine.
The rooms are all large and provide everyone with their own space and privacy while all collocated at the villa. We walked down for pizza one night and up to Carda to check it out, many of our group ventured to local towns and into Arezzo - but, honestly we were all so taken with the Villa we spent most of our Tuscan week there.
I can't rave enough about Villa Carda, it is a special special place, worth every cent and we will definitely be back!
Thanks Andrea - from the mad kiwi's - Victoria, Steve, Don, Sam, Paul, Karen, Dan, Allie, Dani, Ami, Libby and Christian.
