If you are looking for a Villa to comfortably fit 18 people, look no further than the Villa Benedetta in Greve in Chianti. Very spacious, well equipped and close to town, other villages and a plethora of wineries and restaurants to explore.
Our Group of 18 stayed here for 7 days and we wished we were there for longer. The walk down the hill to Greve is easy. The walk back......not so much :-) However, the town square is full of restaurants and has a wonderful butchery to stock up on your daily charcuterie needs.
We ate in most nights and easily cooked for 18 using the fabulous kitchen facilities. We also held two in house catered dinners / cooking lessons by Allesio Sedran from Florence. I would highly recommend him.
Yolanda our house keeper was a gem. She couldn't do enough for us and always with a beaming smile.
I would highly recommend this Villa to anyone.
My sister booked this property for a large family gathering (13 people) to celebrate her retirement and milestone birthday. We had a spectacular week in this beautifully restored home. The rooms are large and comfortable, the bathrooms are modern. The grounds are beautiful. It's quiet, private, with views of the Tuscan hills and vineyards. The home is up the hill and a gravel road outside Greve, not really an easy walk into the town. Parking is a challenge for a home this large because there is one straight driveway with no room to double park. If you car is not the last one in and you need to exit, it's a challenge, but a manageable one. The kitchen could use some updating, a new coffee maker that will serve the number of people the home can accommodate. Wifi worked, but you had to be in particular areas (i.e., the grand stone stairway) for a good connection. The public gathering spaces are wonderful, comfortable, homey, inviting, great to hangout and have a fun conversation. Highly recommended!
Our group of 7 stayed here for 3 nights. Wish it could have been longer! The beds were comfortable and everything was as it appears in the pictures. The town of Greve had everything - wine stores, restaurants, groceries. Iolanta, the house keeper was so sweet and helpful. Would like to return for a longer visit. Highly recommend for a large group.
Perfect location to visit the many wonderful attractions of Tuscany from San Gimmy to Siena. Only a short walk into beautiful Greve with its wonderful piazza full of restaurants, cafes, bars, butchers and wine shops, heaven.
The Villa provides you with everything you could possibly need for the perfect holiday including the greatest housekeeper, Ulanda, who couldn't do enough for the 7 couples. A summer stay means enjoying the large pool and its beautiful surroundings, a must. Large commercial kitchen if you wish to cook. Ulanda only too happy to get the BBQ started if like us you want to cook up the areas favourite dish, florentine steak, each weighing 2.4kg's, magnificent.
We can highly recommend a stay at Villa Benedetta, you won't be disapoointed.
We stayed for over two weeks. The accommodations could not have been better. Four separate bedroom areas gave you both togetherness in the different common areas as well as some solitude later in the evenings. The pool and grounds were well maintained and always clean. The villa is close to town and can be walked if so inclined. Great views all around.. Even better than all of the above....the staff. Professional and courteous. They(She) made the stay truly wonderful. Looking forward to our next trip.
