“amazingly wonderful boutique experience”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

We spent a week here in May, riding spirited horses across the countryside, eating fabulous food, getting cooking lessons from the chef, and being thoroughly cared for by Vittorio and his family. We expected a good trip of course, and this was even better than we could have imagined. Our needs were attended to with great care: like we had lost luggage for 6 days, so his family helped us out with things to borrow, and taking us under his wing for personal car tours of the areas history and food when the weather didn't allow riding, and more than i can write here. The setting is gorgeous, as others have said. If you want personal attention, great food and lodging, and a larger than life character to show you Italy's finest, this is the place!

My wife and I stayed at Villa Ferraia for 7 days of our honeymoon in Tuscany and it was spectacular. Hidden away at the very end of a dirt road tucked away in the middle of nowhere, south of Siena, Villa Ferraia is a beautiful villa with breathtaking views. We stayed in Room 14, a little out-house with a living room downstairs and bedroom upstairs which was so comfortable and quiet. The outside seating areas are the perfect spot for reading a good book and staring out over the Tuscan hills.

Vittorio and Patrizia were fantastic hosts always happy to chat and provide advice for sight-seeing in the local area and beyond. Stefano's cooking was a fresh take on traditional Italian and Tuscan food and Tatiana was always on hand to make sure we were full at breakfast! Eating meals around the communal table was one of our highlights with a great atmosphere and lots of laughs with the other guests.

We walked away smiling and will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Room 14 is a fantastic living space with a separate living room separate from the main house.

We have stayed at a number of great places in Italy and didn't think they could be topped, until we stayed here. Vittorio and family are fantastic and they have designed the perfect Tuscany experience. Easy to get to and just 30 min from Siena (less depending on how fast you drive). There is plenty of parking and more than enough facilities to keep you and the family occupied if you don't want to leave the spacious grounds. It is also easy for day trips to Florence, Siena and other hill town sites in the area. Of extra benefit, Vittorio knows the Etruscan sites and is very helpful. The rooms are large by American standards and the attention to detail is superb. This is truly a 5-star location and the lodging, food, activities, service and support will make you never want to leave. If your bucket list includes a trip to Italy this should be the place you stay.

We visited in February and we loved it. It is absolutely beautiful and all of the conveniences of a large hotel. The accommodations and food were superb. There is plenty to do whether you spend your entire time at the villa or venture out to explore Tuscany. My trip to Italy also included Florence and Rome, which I loved. Had I spent my entire vacation at the villa, I would not have gone home disappointed. I loved it!

Room Tip: You can choose a suite or just a room.

I visited this Villa in May for a friend's wedding and it was gorgeous! The food was incredible, staff was gracious and the scenery was out of this world. I would absolutely recommend the Villa to anyone for a wedding, family vacation or girlfriend's getaway.

We were fortunate enough to stay at Villa Ferraia for a week this past October. The pictures do not to do it justice. We drove through the gate and our jaws just dropped. We couldn't believe this was where we were going to be spending the next seven days. The drive up is an adventure. Most of the road is gravel/dirt and very bumpy but not so bad once you get the hang of it. We were greeted by Carolina and Vittorio. Both were very friendly and made sure we had anything we needed. After being shown around the property, we settled into our room which was more like a little house off the main house. The "room" was amazing. We had dinner that evening at the Villa. Patrizia is an amazing chef. Everything was great. I was completely spoiled after that meal because no other pasta tasted the same as her homemade pasta and Stefano's homemade sauce. Every morning we were greeted with a great breakfast and were offered eggs and hot beverages to order. Tatiana and Carolina were very gracious hostesses in the morning, getting us anything we needed and on some occasions helping us figure our where we would venture to that day. Vittorio took us on a tour of the property so we got to see pretty much everything about how the Villa is run. We met Stefano in the garden and he showed us around there. One night we were able to go to the Observatory and it was quite a show, despite being a bit overcast. The astronomer showed us several constellations and stars but the most amazing was seeing Jupiter through the telescope. Unbelievable. We were sad to leave but certainly hope to return again. Vittorio, Patrizia, Tatiana, Carolina and Stefano make you feel like family when staying here. I would definitely recommend it if you would like to splurge. As a side note, Vittorio mentioned he is putting together a Winter program and let us peak at the details. Another great offering from Villa Ferraia.

Was there for 3 days on my friends wedding occasion. Property is really far away from any sound of civilization, but still nice, secure, clean and comfortable. Stuff extremely friendly and helpful. Food quality base on local ingredients that are absolutely fresh. Vegetarian friendly! Local red vine may trick you a wile, so take care;)
