“Perfect family villa in an absolutely stunning location”
Reviewed 2 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We spent a wonderful week with family at Villa Cristina. The villa met all our expectations. The location is superb - secluded, high up on the hillside with wonderful views of Arezzo below and yet convenient for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. The facilities were second to none - everything one could wish for and plenty to keep all ages amused. The pool side gazebo was the icing on the cake - a wonderful space for relaxing, eating, listening to music, and sheltering from the thunderstorms! The owners of the villa, Stella and Federica, could not have been more charming or helpful. A truly memorable holiday and we hope to be able to return one day.

“Perfect place for Holiday”
Reviewed 11 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Villa Cristina is a great place to stay. The Place is on a Mountain and you got a special view over the City. The communication was from begin the booking till the end of staying excellent. The check-in was easy and we were greeted warmly. Stella, her husband and Frederica are very friendly. The pool was bigger than expected and also in the jacuzzi you can spend hours. The casino (pool house) is large and offers space for many people and is perfect to have dinner together, to grill or simply to end the evening. The House is very big and we got much space for all our stuff. In addition, you can book a lot of extras like massages, quad-tours, get a taste of the wine, try some delicious wines (the house wine is very delicious) and do many other things. 1 time a day comes a cleaning woman, the rooms and the house clean. The beautiful old town is about 15-20 minutes away by car. There you can also eat delicious and see beautiful buildings and shop. All my friends and I enjoyed it and it was all better than expected. I could now write another 1000 words about this beautiful place, but I'm still a bit speechless when I think of the time and place and miss it already.

“Tuscan dream”
Reviewed 7 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

Our big family have spent five weeks in total at Villa Cristina during last years and it is one of the best vacation places we have ever had in our life. Everything was great and superb. Villa Cristina is a really beautiful place, well maintained with a fantastic view of Arezzo. Our hosts were really outstanding! They always help us a lot with transfers, restaurants and rental car agency in Arezzo. We kept in touch during the weeks by email and text messages and our hosts always replied promptly. They also helped us a lot with all our ideas and requests during the vacation. The villa itself was incredible, exactly as describe and even more adorable in person. Big enough with great design and everything you need. All of the bedrooms were comfortable and we all slept well. Each room had its own bathroom, air conditioning and a lot of storage places for our things. There are a really great pool, hot tube, an outdoor shower, kitchen and grill area with pizza oven to fire up lunch outside. Arezzo is the best “home base” to visit Tuscany in my humble opinion. Great medieval town and not overcrowded by tourists at all. Also we did manage to see some marvellous Tuscan towns including Siena, Anghiari and San Gimignano nearby. I want to say a big thank you to Stella, Federica and Nicola for making this dream true for our family! And I hope to return next year as it becomes a tradition!

We don't have enough words to thank Sergey !! His words fill us with joy and pride!
It's wonderful for us to discover the satisfaction of our guests and to know that our work is understood and appreciated! We always try to do our best for our guests and for Sergey it's always a pleasure !!
Also for us it was a great pleasure to have all of them again at our Villa and the greatest reward for us would be to create, as he said, a true tradition and meet them every year!
It is superfluous to say that Sergey and the family are truly special guests and people!
With great gratitude, Sergey we look forward to you with anxiety!

“Perfect holidays for tree familes”
Reviewed 31 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have been at Villa Cristina for the second time, because we love tjis beautiful villa on the top of a hill near arezzo. In the evening you can see the sunset and the beauty of this old town Arezzo.
We relaxed by the pool and spent most of our day in the gazebo. Everything is in excellent shape, the gardener and the cleaning stuff are doing a perfekt job.

“Perfect for relaxing and recharging”
Reviewed 25 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Cristina with our friends for a week in June. There were 8 of us in total, 6 adults and 2 children (ages 13 and 5). We ended up only using 4 of the 5 bedrooms. The weather was very hot and sunny every day so we spent most of our time in the saltwater pool and the pool house. We had a brilliant time!

The villa itself was well maintained, comfortably well appointed and spacious enough for all of us. There are also options for both indoor and outdoor dining and sitting areas both inside and outside as well. Since the weather was so nice we spent most of our time outside by the pool. The views from the terrace by the pool and from the pool house are absolutely stunning. The villa is on a hill and overlooks the town of Arezzo. It is the perfect location to have a very chilled out holiday to rest and recharge but I do recommend a car if you would like to drive into town to go to the shops.

We never dined out as our wonderful hostesses, Stella and Federica, organised for private chefs to cook for us at the villa and we also went food shopping and did a bit of cooking ourselves as the kitchen has pretty much everything you could possibly need. They also very kindly organised a day of private vineyard tours for us in Montalcino and Montepulciano with a stop in Pienza in between which we absolutely enjoyed.

We can't say enough about how accommodating and hospitable Stella and Federica were even before we arrived. Email correspondences between Villa Cristina in Italy, and us in the UK, USA and Thailand were replied to immediately and thoroughly. Then at check-in they met us on arrival and spent a lot of time showing us around the villa and explaining everything to us. Any time we had questions or any problems we could contact them and they would either sort it out by phone or drive to the villa and see us to resolve whatever issue in person. At one point we even had Stella's husband, Nicola, at the villa trying to recover the wifi connection (which is now up and running fine both inside the villa and the pool house). They are very quick and efficient about answering queries and solving any problems and handle everything in a very professional but genuinely friendly manner. We found them eager to please and fulfill any reasonable requests but they had thought of most things already so we didn't really require anything additional.

We hope to return to Villa Cristina again as the villa is perfect for a family holiday, the owners are fantastic and we found it very good value for money. We wish Stella and Federica continued success with renting out their wonderful family villa.

“The perfect Tuscan Experience!”
Reviewed 5 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We had an extraordinary 2 week stay with extended family at Villa Cristina. The estate has incredible facilities and boasts wonderful views of the city of Arezzo. The two sisters that own and manage this property are amazing and were on call if we needed the tiniest thing or piece of advice, but never intrusive. It was pure joy for all to be able to stay in this wonderful villa. Every room is spacious and comfortable and has its own private bathroom and the place was meticulous and cleaned every day. The grounds and pool area are magnificent and the facilities were beyond expectations. No words can describe what a welcoming and incredible place this is. We very much look forward to visiting Villa Cristina again.
