“A superb find!!”
Reviewed 25 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a magical week staying at Casa Leana with 8 of our friends and our baby son, where we got married in the beautiful local town of Anghiari.
The villa is fantastic, full of charm, history and pleasant surprises! From the games room to the wine cellar to the extensive (and beautifully kept) gardens and pool, it really does have everything you need for a super relaxing and fun holiday.
The house has spectacular views, and the peace and quiet, along with the birdsong really is a world away from the hussle and bussle of the UK! The (heated) pool is a wonderful place to be on a sunny day or evening.
Di and Leigh are superb hosts, and they work extremely hard to make sure you have the best possible experience. In addition to recommending and booking authentic local restaurants, and providing a great taxi service for those evenings you all want to drink Chianti Classico, Di and Leigh did a superb job of arranging our entire Tuscan wedding!
From sorting out all the legal matters with the local authorities, booking the commune (local town hall where we were married) to arranging pre and post drinks at a local cafe/bar, a wedding cake, a 5 course meal in a great restaurant, photo shoot, chauffeuring the whole party around all day (in decorated car of course), they put many hours into every detail. They completely earnt our trust months before the big day, and everything was PERFECT thanks to them!
A final word on the town of Anghiari, it is one of Tuscany's hidden gems. A stunning walled town on a hill with amazing views, cobbled streets and a very friendly atmosphere. It is a great setting for any celebration, and a great base from which to explore Tuscany and beyond.
Thank you Diana and Leigh for such a memorable holiday!

“A Dream Villa”
Reviewed 12 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Within minutes of receiving our tour of this beautiful home, we were jokingly trying to figure out how we could live there forever. The owners have not forgotten anything in preparing their house for guests. There are bike helmets, wet suits for adults and children if the pool is too cool, children's toys (indoor and outdoor), a welcome basket in the kitchen to get you started,...I could go on and on.

The house is very large and very comfortable for large groups and a gem for families with young children. The nearby village of Anghiari is avery well preserved medieval village, yet not on most tourists' itinerary, so you feel as though you are discovering it alone.

There are a lot of day trips easily accessible from the house, but the house and grounds are so amazing that we wanted to spend some quality time there as well.

Overall, nothing but positive comments to say.

Thank you so so much for your lovely review. We knew you had a great time when we saw you at the house but it is so kind of you to put it down in words. We are absolutely delighted that you enjoyed your holiday at Casa Leana and we loved hearing the stories about what you had cooked (and how!) and where you and the children had been exploring. We are planning a trip to the Chocolate Factory in Perugia ourselves over the next few weeks under your recommendation! Thanks again and we really hope to see you and your lovely family in the future. Di and Leigh

“A great villa for a family, spacious and beautiful!”
Reviewed 17 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from our family trip to Tuscany, and spent 8 nights at Casa Leana.
Everything in the villa is just amazing, it is well maintained and beautifully furnished, equipped with all the necessary accessories.
The owners are so nice and helpful, Diana answered so many questions we sent before the vacation, and she did it patiently and promptly.
The pool was a great fun for the kids! Although some of the days during September were a bit chilly and the water was not hot enough for us, but in the other days were weather was warmer the pool was perfect! It is kept very clean and tidy.
The garden contains tomatoes and strawberry that the owners are growing themselves and the kids enjoyed very much picking them directly from the bush and eating fresh strawberries that were so tasty!
We had a great time for all the family at Casa Leana and would definitely recommend it!
Thank you for everything, Di & Leigh!

“Traditional Tuscan Adventure”
Reviewed 11 September 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We spent a delightful week here, just before Easter.

This is a traditional rustic building, set in a small hamlet, overlooking a Tuscan valley and the hills beyond.

The pictures show you the views and the countryside is lovely.

We were a group of 13. The most they have had; but we were more than comfortable. We were 3 generations with Grandparents and 5 children. We were meeting up from England, Scotland and Dubai.

The accommodation is set on 3 levels, as is the garden: so lots of steps; but the old folks managed fine.

The setting is lovely and so are the owners – Lee and Di. They really do make sure that you have everything you need and are available or out of the way, as required. One of the reasons we chose this villa was that the owners are British: so there would be no communication problems.
Before we arrived, Di sent numerous emails to made sure that we had everything organised and where to meet us. She also helped arrange a Police letter for a visa. She was like a mother hen.
When we met Lee at Arezzo station, he was not fazed by the number of cases and dealt with everything.

We made trips to Florence and the local towns; but spent most of the time in the garden, or the house and most evenings would have a mafia style dinner for 13, in the kitchen.

There were bikes in the shed (at no extra charge) and there were enough for all the kids and a couple of adults to explore the countryside. The area and the roads are quiet.

The local town of Anghliari is also delightful, with plenty of character and stunning views. The restaurant of Baldaccio’s is well worth a visit, very friendly and having the best pizza we tasted. Other trips to the local towns and wineries were also fun and the locals always friendly.

We thought that the kids would get bored; but they didn't - there is a games room and a huge DVD collection besides. Great to spend some time with the family, in the Italian way.

There are some minor things that one could moan about; but nothing worth noting overall - look at the pictures and details and there will be no surprises. We loved it here and our daughter has the view from the garden as her screen saver.

We would love to come again.

Hi there.. Thank you so much for your kind words and we are so pleased that you and your rather large(!) family enjoyed yourselves at Casa Leana. We enjoyed meeting you all very much. We try our very best to keep all generations happy at the house and it appears that for you guys we have succeeded - it means a lot to us that you have spent the time to let us know by writing a review. We would, of course, love for you to visit again! PS Thank you for the much used bottle opener brought all the way from Dubai (very useful!)

“Perfect holiday home in perfect location”
Reviewed 12 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you like Italy, forget that...if you like 5 star luxury set in a perfect location with great service then look no further than Casa Leana. Every step of the way from booking to completing our stay was dealt with promptly and superbly by Leigh and Di (owners). The house is set in a perfect location, authentic Italy. Close enough to great restaurants, shops and bars. The house is super, over 3 floors of old meets new, tastefully done. Pool and gardens are wonderful but the views from the house make for a perfect backdrop. Every window looks like a perfect painting, this includes to toilet from the bathroom!

Already booking for next summer if not before.
