It is SO beautiful here! This is the second time we've stayed at the Villa Sant'Uberto. The first time several years ago we were newly married and we stayed in a lovely room, and it was very romantic. This time, with two young children, we took advantage of one of their self-catering apartments, and loved it even more!
The apartment was lovely: comfortable, spacious rooms and decorated in a true Tuscan fashion with gorgeous dark woods. Good kitchen equipped with everything I needed to cook (and I love to cook, especially in Italy!), very comfortable beds, modern bathroom with more than enough towels, and plenty of storage space for clothing. The shower was a bit iffy--the temperature of the water would not remain stable, and sometimes would turn off by itself, but a minor inconvenience in the scheme of things.
Amazing views. I was perfectly happy to sit outside the apartment on the attached patio with a glass of wine in my hand and just look at the view. We took full advantage of the huge refreshing pool, and there was plenty of space for the kids to run around without (hopefully!) bothering anyone else.
Location is perfect. It feels completely isolated in the woods which we loved (you must have a car), but only about 10 minutes to Castellina which a great little town. Centrally located for visiting many of the hilltowns of Tuscany, though, admittedly, this trip we really enjoyed simply staying "home" in the apartment, swimming, cooking, eating, and reading. There is free wi-fi, too, which made my husband happy. Oh! And there is a vineyard within walking distance that has an enoteca. We tasted and bought a bottle of wine there for dinner one night.
The owners are fantastic. They will provide as much or as little assistance as one would like. Giovanni speaks very good English. Wonderful people!
Highly highly highly recommend this place. We look forward to returning there for a third stay in the future.
