You imagine Tuscany, its countryside, the hilly landscape with olive trees and vines, the swimming pool and the loan of a beautiful Villa. You are at Villa il Pozzo.
It is just perfect.
The apartment is huge, well decorated, nice beds, nicely furnished.
The person in charge is very nice.
The swimming pool is big and with an amazing view of the surroundings.
Nice restaurants around.
Less than an hour by car to Florence or Siena.
Fantastic

Room Tip: Camino apartment ws very nice.

We are very grateful to our friends ,they took us to
this beautiful place ,
As a result we spent a very nice holidays in Tuscany as from our dreams .But not just because of the beautiful landscape, weather and fine wine, but also thanks to a warm
atmosphere which owners create . Warm, hospitable but not intrusive. We
felt right at home and will certainly return.

Villa il pozzo, also known as villa del torre because of the 1000 year old tower me and my boyfriend had the pleasure of staying in, is a beautiful spacious villa with about 10 apartments.

Each apartment is large, and it is clear they have not tried to cram in rooms to make money. We stayed in 'Torre' which we chose because it was the last one available with air con (I would say a necessity in July, especially after talking to the guests in rooms without it).

There is a fantastic vibe, all apartments are booked out from sat-sat and we made friends with a lot of the families there, even having a joint bbq on their beautiful terrace over looking the Tuscan terrain.

Gianni, the owner Alessandro's son, offers free wine tasting tours and they are both very helpful. The local wine is 5euro and very good for the price!

Couldn't recommend this enough, perfect place to relax by the pool in an historical setting, and great place to visit surrounding, florence (1 hour 20 drive) San gimiano (30 mins) volterra (1.5 hours) and amazing local restaurants

There is a certain vision of what Tuscany looks and feels like. That vision is fully realized at Villa il Pozzo. First and foremost, the service from Alessandro and family is perfect. This is the home he and his siblings were raised in and they take visible pride in the property. Alessandro took the time to give us a tour of their wine and olive production (make sure you purchase a few bottles). Upon our arrival they walked us through the rooms and property and ensured we were comfortable with the accommodations. We shared our itinerary and Alessandro explained the best place to take the train (Certaldo) and noted some good restaurants nearby (try the pumpkin stuffed coniglio at Osteria di Casa Chianti). We saw the family around the property throughout the week and were available for us to ask questions.

The property and grounds were perfectly manicured. The pool was always clean. We were able to walk to a nearby church and walk around the vineyards. There is an incredible view of the neighboring hill towns. We asked ourselves, why stay at crowded San Gimignano when you have a clear, relaxing view of San Gimignano and all the towers from Villa il Pozzo? We stayed in the "Terrazza" room. The Terrace is incredible. Uninterrupted views of the entire region.

Geographically, the Villa is in a perfect location. Just a few minutes from Certaldo, which in its own right is a great exposure to Italian lifestyle (loved the families taking the evening walks with all the kids well past 10pm). We did our grocery shopping and we took train trips to Siena and Firenze from here. We also drove to Volterra, San Gimignano, and Siena. The drives were short and enjoyable (unless the passenger is prone to carsickness - lots of curves!)

I could go on and on. Suffice it say - I will never hear about a friend or acquaintance making a trip to Tuscany without recommending Villa il Pozzo.

The only regret I have is not taking enough time to relax at the Villa itself. Make those days trips shorter, come back to Il Pozzo, share some wine out on the lawn or by the pool and stare out across the perfect scene you imagined before arriving.

Room Tip: You can not go wrong with the Terrazza.

The perfect place to live your tuscan dream! Explore the region or simply hang out at the wonderful pool with it's amazing view. After some days at this lovely, perfect and lovely decorated rooms make you feel home, everything is perfectly clean, you don't miss anything (hair-dryer,...) and the family is so friendly and helpful but also "not visible" if you are not in the mood for a talk.

Simply paradise!
