We recently returned home after spending an amazing time at the Villa Teresa in Cavriglia, Tuscany. Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, and Cortona can be reached in less than an hour and Rome, Perugia, Pisa and Bologna in about two hours
We rented the Villa for a full week to be the setting for our daughter and soon to be son-in-law’s wedding. What a great decision that turned out to be for the 18 of us, ages 68 years to 5 months.
The Villa, which is a very short walk to the town of Cavriglia, is beautifully set among olive and fig trees and the views are spectacular. It is fully restored and has all the modern features you would want, yet it maintained the charm that we expect it had when it was first built in the 19th century to house a wealthy Florentine family while they spent their weekends outside of Florence. The Villa is extremely well equipped and has a high end kitchen with professional appliances, Wifi , newly renovated modern bathrooms and bedrooms that are all large, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. There is the added plus of a swimming pool, which was enjoyed by all.
The owners, Cristina, Gino and their daughter Francesca, went above and beyond to make sure our every need was met. Cristina is a wonderful cook and the meals she made for us were the best we experienced in Italy. Francesca was a wedding planner/organizer extraordinaire and took us to the best florists, bakers and hairdressers to ensure we got exactly what we wanted. Every last detail, from the table setting to the food, was done to perfection. They arranged drivers to take us to other cities for sightseeing tours. We cannot say enough about the great hospitality we were given by these three wonderful people and they made us feel like we were part of their family.
We can’t recommend the Villa Teresa highly enough and want to thank Cristina, Francesca and Gino from the bottom of our hearts for making our stay and wedding at Villa Teresa the experience of a lifetime.
If you are considering this Villa, and we encourage you to do so, make sure to book directly from the owners as you will get a much better rate than going through brokers.
