“Amazing Stay!”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

A group of eight avid cooks set ourselves the task of finding a great property in Italy, France OR Spain for a week long foodie vacation. We happened on Villa San Lorenzo, saw the pictures, figured it couldn't possibly be as good as it looked, but that as long as it was close, we'd probably have a pretty good time.

Well, we were wrong. It was EVEN BETTER than it looked, and perfectly suited our needs. VSL is beautiful and well located right in the middle of Piedmont, one of the best wine regions in Italy. Tamar and Clay prepped the villa wonderfully for us, leaving us a big basket of local treats, and were a terrific source of information about the region. All eight of our group would recommend it unreservedly. Five PLUS stars!

“Fantastic villa with a fantastic host!”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We found this villa online for the eight of us, wanting a less touristy wine country and food paradise trip. Every single detail was thought of by John, our villa host, and we had the most incredible week of our lives! The villa was top of the line, super clean and modern! On top of a mountain with few neighbors, (with a view of the French Alps!) we stayed in paradise... Everyone had their own private quarters including a bathroom. The grounds were beautiful, the pool relaxing, the living room area was where we all hung out together drinking, eating, playing games... Even though there were so many other places to go and be alone for a while! The kitchen (there were two!) was a dream for all of us! We traveled with an American chef friend, and John set us up with a fantastic day with an Italian chef Fabio who came to us for cooking classes, even brought us homemade pizza dough to make pizzas in that fantastic outdoor wood burning pizza oven! We golfed, had 3 full wine tasting days with transportation, as well as transportation to THE FINEST restaurants in the area, all of which were outstanding but we must say, Osteria Dei Binelli, Fabio and Christian's restaurant, stands out as our favorite! We ate their the first night we arrived and we were all in heaven!! Affordable and delicious, HAVE THE TAJARIN, it's incredible!! John thought of everything for us, even shopped for us to have a mini stocked kitchen awaiting us upon arrival. Two friends arrived a couple of days later, and John helped get them to us when their flights were delayed. He also took the time to help each couple with their future travel plans as we were all splitting off at the end of the week. (My husband and I drove to Florence rather than train, and it was a beautiful trip! So happy he told us to drive!!) It felt as though he got to know us somewhat by email, and upon our first meeting, we all just clicked. We instantly wanted him at dinners and tastings with us, just to hang out with him! He lived down the street from the villa, and so did his parents. We all had dogs back home and were feeling homesick missing our furry friends, so John had his parents walk their dog down the street to us so we could get our "furry fix". Actually cried when we left him, hoping we could find a reason to have him as our host on a future Europe trip! All in all, the villa, it's owner Clay, and host John were the perfect dream come true for this Northern Italy vacation. We are forever thankful and will recom

“Beautiful, Scenic, Historic”
Reviewed 10 July 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our trip to Northern Italy was spectacular. Of course there is so much to do and see, but be sure to just enjoy your time at Villa San Lorenzo as well. It is a wonderful villa with views and areas to relax, read and enjoy the Italian air. The villa manager, John Pinca, is a treasure. He goes above and beyond to make your vacation special and memorable. John knows the area, the little known spots, and will tell you as much as you want to know. We truly believe that he alone put this trip on our "to do" list again!
