This is a beautiful villa in a lovely setting that is very carefully thought out, beautifully landscaped and maintained and accommodated all our needs. Most of all the owners, Stefano and Serena, their family and their friends gave us the most amazing service and were over and above in accommodating us in what was a bit of a stressful situation. For this we are forever grateful.
We stayed at the Dimora San Jacopo completely by accident and were forced upon the poor owners who were not even ready to open for business in their brand new villa. The original villa we had booked was a disaster and we were forced to move. The booking agent offered us 3 alternative villas and as we were travelling with our elderly parents we chose to take a look at the closest villa first. We could not believe our luck. Poor Stefano and Serena were not due to have their first ever rental until the following month. The villa was in the final stages of getting ready for this when we advised that we would be arriving later that afternoon to spend the rest of our 2 weeks there. We returned with our bags and parents to a hive of activity and the whole family was assisting in getting ready for our stay. From here on we cannot fault the service and friendship we received.
We used 2 of the 5 apartments that are available and both of these are beautiful. The best part of this villa is the outside areas and the pool which are all meticulously maintained by Marco. We were joined by some friends for a few days and the villa, while being a wonderfully sociable setting, also gives privacy for all guests with their own private areas. This would also be true for much larger groups than us.
The situation of the villa is perfect for day trips. We visited Pisa, San Gimignano, Siena, Florence as well as some of the surrounding smaller towns which have supermarkets and lovely restaurants.
We very much hope to visit again and wish Stefano and Serena all the very best for the future.
