“Typical Tuscan Villa”
Reviewed 19 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

The location of the Villa was perfect in that we were close enough to amenities yet further away enough to have a view and feel like you were in the hills. The Villa was clean and everything was in working order. The time of year we went it was very hot so the upstairs bedrooms needed the fans which were provided.

Liked best: Convenience, comfortable
Liked least: no washing machine, plenty mosquito's late afternoon but this could be typical for time of year and not necessarily the Villa.

“Fantastic Views and Location”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We spent Easter here, great for a short break but really we needed longer. We took a flight from Heathrow to Pisa a nice short flight. Had a quick look around PISA , not sure we needed more time there, then went onto Villa Olivo. Walked around the house to an amazing view. You look across the rolling hills and onto Montecatini Alto. I was happy to stay the whole w/e on the patio just relaxing...but we didn't. First we went to the local supermarket for food & wine; What a choice, so much fresh local food WOW!. Later that evening to a local restaurant for Pizza always a good choice in Italy.
Next day we explored Lucca; a must do. Great walled city. Loads of café & restaurants and a wide range of posh & local shops. It was a bit wet( rain rain) for us so we continued the day with a drive around, so much to explore.
Next day was a day in Florence ( Easter Sunday) . Obviously a fantastic place to explore and special Easter events & fireworks. Try and park up the hill in the free car park and walk down. Views and photos from here are fantastic.

We didn't fit in a trip to Montecatni Terme, although we drive through here. Looks like a small town with lots to offer ;it cant be bad with so many 5 * hotels in one place.
Monday morning on the patio at last. See you again soon.

Many thanks, Geoff. We chose this farmhouse because of its location. All the major tourist attractions are within easy reach e.g. Florence, Lucca, Siena, Pisa, San Gimignano, Cinque Terra. Hope to see you again

“Quite, peaceful essence of Tuscany”
Reviewed 12 October 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had an 8-9 day stay at Casa Cipressi, what a great location for easy access to Lucca, Florence, Pisa etc etc. the villa was great and suited us well. Lara was a very helpful housekeeper .... with some English which eventuated in a lot of laughter. Karen and I would easily recommend this as a great place to stay.

“Quiet, Comfortable and Authentic”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 for a stay in December 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed in the Olivio part of this Villa for 4 nights over new years. The valley has spectacular views and there are plenty of small villages and walks to be discovered. A short drive from the train station made it great for day trips to Florence and Pisa and the bedrooms and beds are comfortable and spacious.

The villa itself is traditional with some modern touches (dishwasher, DVD player etc...) and there are comfy sofas and plenty of space for groups of people to hang out.

We stayed during the winter and the heating keeps the house snug and there is plenty of hot water for showers etc... which is always a bonus after a walk or run in the hills.

Thanks, Emilio. We're very pleased you enjoyed your stay. Winter in Tuscany is a special time with many days of clear blue skies and bright sunshine. The central heating in Villa Olivo keeps our guests warm and comfortable.
