Borgo Bucciano

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We have just returned from our wedding at Villa Bucciano. We had approx 40 guests staying over with us in Italy. The wedding was perfectly organised by Barbara at Infinity Weddings and every aspect of the trip exceeded our expectations. Some of the guests are already planning further family trips back to the villa next year!

The villa is situated on a beautiful hilltop with stunning views. The accommodation is traditional Italian style but extremely clean, comfortable and cool. The food is fantastic and they are even able to provide you with excellent red wine from their own vineyard (we are extremely fussy wine drinkers but the wine was very good and excellent value).

The highlight of our stay was the continued support and superb hospitality offered to us by Alberto, Sylvia and of course, Mama Carla! Nothing was ever too much trouble. They continually go the extra mile and ensure that any stay with them will provide a lifetime of happy memories. We can't thank them enough. Alberto mentioned a saying that they have... "you arrive as guests but leave as friends". I can't explain it any better.

This is a truly special place and so comfortable to stay at or hold a function. We can't recommend it enough and wish the family the very best for the future.

We returned to Bucciano in July 2013 after having our wedding there in July 2012. Alberto and Carla were, as before, hugely welcoming and even hosted a lunch for us on the first day to properly welcome us, despite that Alberto stayed up until we arrived the night prior at midnight even ensuring we had a delicious light supper, Prosecco and red wine available - much needed after a delayed Easyjet flight into Pisa!
The apartment is very well furnished, the pool is fantastic and we enjoyed an awesome continental breakfast every morning, with the most incredible fried eggs! The views are extraordinary from Bucciano, as is the peace and quiet, and it's ideally located. We went to San Gimignano one day, Florence is accessible both by car and train from San Miniato, and Lucca is only 40 minutes away. In all, a great base for either staying put and thoroughly relaxing or touring. Alberto and Carla work so hard to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable and really will help with anything you need.

Bucciano is run by Alberto and his mother and they were super helpful and made our stay really spectacular.
Set in the Tuscan hills near San Miniato, the view on the way in and out is stunning but nothing compared to the one you enjoy when by the pool which looks out to olive groves on one side of the valley and the muntains on the other.
Very clean, fantastically and authentically decorated with originals features retained, the service and stay was impeccable.
We went out for a wedding but would absolutley stay there again for a week's stay. Half-way between Pisa and Florence, this is a brilliant base from which to explore a rustic taste of Tuscany.

We recently attended our daughter's wedding in July 2012 and the whole families on both sides stayed for anything between several days to a week on a bed & breakfast basis.We cannot express our delight at the warmth & hospitality of Carla & Alberto who made everyone's stay so perfect.Nothing was too much trouble& the venue and catering was second to none. The accommodation is in self catering apartments which are air conditioned spacious and well furnished in a traditional style.On request Carla prepared excellent evening meals which were eaten outside on the terrace. The outdoor swimming pool and jacuzzi were well used and there was the added bonus of the provision of towels. The setting being glorious with magnificent views over the surrounding countryside.A hired car is recommended with the small town of San Miniato 10 minutes drive away.We cannot recommend this venue enough and is perfect for either a wedding venue or individual holidays. We will certainly consider a return trip.

I have just returned from a fabulous stay at this incredible venue. The rooms are a little rustic but perfect for what you need, a base away from the summer heat. The rooms had excellent air con, clean fresh bed linen and towels, the shower was pretty small in our room at the top of the house but the pressure was good. Carla and Alberto were so welcoming and excellent hosts - nothing was too much trouble. Alberto (who speaks very good English) even helped us out when we had an issue with the car we had hired, sending us off to a local mechanic friend.
I was a guest at my brothers wedding here and it was a fantastic venue for such an event - incredible views and beautifully maintained grounds with a great pool that was always perfectly clean. There really is nothing I can say that is bad - I would recommend to friends to stay, both solo travelers looking for a quiet getaway, to families with kids who need a base to use when exploring the local Tuscan area. It's not that easy to find though so make sure you print out a map or get directions from Alberto before setting off. Enjoy - this place is a real gem and I will definitely return one day.
P.s the breakfast that Carla makes is amazing, get stuck in to those fried eggs, simply divine!

Room Tip: There are no lifts so unless you don't mind a stair climb ask for a room on a lower floor, some...

We returned to the UK today after staying here for our wedding. We married in the beautiful town hall in San Miniato and had our reception in the groundsfor Bucciano.

I cannot put into words just how amazing this place is. The views are magnificent, the swimming pool clean and refreshing, the property is beautiful, clean and very well maintained, the grounds are a Tuscan dream and the apartments have everything you need. I also cannot praise highly enough Carla and Alberto who make this such a wonderful place to stay. They are really decent people and nothing is too much trouble. The food which Carla prepared (often at short notice and for large groups) was beyond delicious. Alberto speaks very good English and both he and Carla went out of their way to make us feel welcome and at home, and they also made surprise contributions to support our wedding theme and make our day special.

We had a party of 34 in total including a 1 year old up to 70 something year olds and all had a lovely time and were accommodated with ease.

All of our guests were full of praise and many would love to return. We definitely intend to return. Casa Vacanze Bucciano is everything we want from Tuscany.

Stayed at the Casa Vacanze Bucciano in July 2012 for a wedding with about 30 people.
The site is quite remote and on top of a hill, so it is best reached by car, but the views are spectacular and it is very peaceful.
Carla and Antonio are lovely and attentive to the needs of their guests and will endeavour to keep you well fed and watered. There is an on site bar, but you are welcome to bring your own food and drink too. Most rooms have a fridge freezer, microwave, hob and sink, as well as the much needed air conditioning.
The pool is clean, well maintained and at the deep end about 8 feet deep. There is also a jacuzzi which is the same temperature as the pool and toilet/shower/changing facilities underneath the pool.
My only criticisms are minor. The beds are very hard, the showers are feisty and insect repellent is a must.
Overall i thoroughly enjoyed my stay.
