“Ultimate place to explore Tuscany from”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

The villa is spacious with a magnificent hill-top view.
The kitchen is fully equipped so just bring your friends and some wine and enjoy :)
The winery (in the adjacent building) is "must visit".
Our hosts are very friendly, making us feel at home.

Reviewed 18 April 2012

I was lucky enough to celebrate my 40th birthday with a group of 20 friends and family at Villa Branca. We had the whole place to ourselves and the apartments were wonderful. We were introduced to the property by Robyn Vulinovich, our magnificent guide from Slow Food Australia. It was a spectacular place to base ourselves while touring Tuscany. We even managed to squeeze in the most memorable Italian long lunch at Villa Branca overlooking the Tuscan countryside. At the time we were there it was still a winery so the whole week was topped off with a tour and wine tasting. The only thing I am sad about is the chianti and Riserva are no longer available.

Room Tip: All the apartments are wonderful.

Reviewed 25 May 2009

Our family along with another (4 adults and 5 children) stayed for five days at Villa Branca. A friend who lived in the area reccomended it and we would consider it again for staying in this area of Tuscany. The pool was nice, however, not heated, so at our time of year, was pretty cold. We stayed in a farmhouse which has been nicely converted to apartments - ours had four bedrooms, three full baths, living room, kitchen, eating area. There were bikes and ping pong table for the kids (and adults). We did an on site winery tour which was interesting. The rooms, bedding, design was as nice as most 3-4 star hotels we have stayed in, but this is a no servcie Agriturismo style place - so, don;t expect any pampering - it's more like a residence. We were mostly there by ourselves, we were able to use the laundry facilities to get fresh clothes again.
Overall, a great value and experience. The photos on their website are accurate, so check those out.
