Villa Ferraia
Reviewed 10 October 2011

......and even more. Our small group was picked up at the train station in Siena for our annual horseback riding trip, this year into the Tuscan hills. We were met by Vittorio, owner and operator of Castello di Tocchi and Villa Ferraia (and perhaps others), jumped aboard his white Landrover, and were off for the trip of our lives! We were immediately in love with his quick wit and quirky sense of humor as he launched into story after story. As we passed the Castello de Tocchi, we were told "unfortunately you won't be staying there this week as planned". I already had a feeling he was setting us up for a surprise and sure enough, we soon entered a gated oasis, unlike any of us had expected. So this is how celebrities vacation? Perhaps Brad and Angelina had to leave early? Here it was; a stone villa overlooking the Tuscan hills with 14 rooms, infinity pool, underground sauna, three different temperature plunge pool, observatory, fantastic kitchen, beautiful dining room and so much more. I'll post a link to the website, but really I don't know how you'd go about booking this property except for a destination wedding or similar event. We were so lucky our small group was able to experience this property. And Vittorio? Well, he ate with us ever evening, drove us to his riding stables, accompanied us twice on our ride, took us to a Sardinia sheppards farm house (another drop dead georgous location high in the hills) to have a fantastic meal, drove us to a tack shop, stopped for a complementary gellato, and on an on, his hospitality and that of his family and staff were above and beyond. We had to be careful what we commented on because his mission seemed to cater to any whim. Someone asked why we hadn't seen arranchini on the menu in Italy. Not only did he educate us (a Silcilian food), but he provided a cooking lesson for us the next day after riding with arranchini, raviolli and tiramisu which we later devoured. We had him explain the history of the Palio horserace in Siena. The last day of our ride he took us to an old Palio training race track and let us turn our horses loose. Holy Gallop!! Then that nite he arranged a private movie screening of the Palio race from the year before. He truly is one of a kind as is this property. I cannot begin to describe the amount of food and wine provided, even his wife's homemade lemonchelo. If you have a group or if you are able to contact him through his website, I urge anyone to try to experience this piece of heaven on earth! www.villaferraia.it

If you want to experience a luxurious stay at a beautiful villa, away from it all, and wine and dine on the finest organic, home grown, food - this is the place. Perfect for conferences, weddings, or just touring groups, this accomodation treats you like royalty. Complete with spa and Infinity pool, walking trails, observatory, private garden with outdoor cooking station, and the most beautiful rooms to relax in, you might never want to go home. Our host, Vittorio, took us on the most incredible cultural tours of places only locals would know, along with the known locales. Perfect for that special getaway, but not the place to go out nighclubbing, as it is out in the quiet country! Beautiful views and privavcy!

We stayed at Villa ferraia for 1 week in May 2009, we had our wedding here...
We got married in the small church of Monticiano!
So we were here for a whole week with family and friends and we had the best time of our lives!!!!
The scenery, surroundings are so beautiful, just breathtaking... Vittorio, the owner knows exactly how to enjoy live, he's really such a nice person! The staff was incredible!!! They were the best ever, they did everything to make this week an experience to never forget! The food was really so good!!! We stayed with 26 in the villa for the whole week. For the actual wedding party we where with 64. It was more then we could have ever dreamed... Everything was provided as asked and even after my 1000st email :-) they were still very helpfull!!! We worked with a professional wedding planner for the day itself (this was also more then excellent everything was arranged as in a fairy tale!!!) and for the other days the staff of Villa Ferraia did everything.
It is impossible to try to describe how beautiful and perfect this location is... No one would believe... But believe us we have already seen a lot of beautiful places in the world and this is definitly one that sits in the top!!!!
Our family and friends still speak about this vacation trip...
I can only say if you want to have an incredible vacation with a group of friends or a family trip, don't hesitate!
