“Amazing location, wonderful service!”
Reviewed 5 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I visited Villa Carda with my friend and her family and I was certainly not disappointed! On arrival, I was struck by how beautiful the location was, unable to see another villa for miles. The villa itself was beautiful presented and oozed Italian charm, and I particularly liked the covered area where we enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner. The pool was another highlight, and even when we moaned that it was too cold for us, Andrea was on hand to heat it up! The Wellness Centre was a big bonus, and we enjoyed using the Emotional shower and hot tub at little expense - it really is worth the extra money.

Andrea and Antonio were by far the best hosts I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. On our arrival, they were both on hand to give us a tour of the villa and answer all our questions, even organising a riding trip for myself. On our last night we had the pleasure of joining Andrea and his lovely wife in Bibbiena, which is one of the best places I have been to, with its old Italian streets and taverns.

The villa is worth every penny and with a host like Andrea, Villa Carda is definitely THE place to stay.

“Magnificent. One of the best family holidays that we have ever had.”
Reviewed 28 August 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The place was beautiful. It had everything you would want. Every day we relaxed, enjoyed the view, toured the beautiful country side and near by towns and historical sites. The owners of the villa were so hospitable and welcoming. We very much enjoyed their company and the services they provided. We took advantage of the option to have dinners cooked for us, by Andrea and Francesca, which were a gourmet delight - one of the highlights of our trip. If you are looking for the best of the best in Tuscany, Villa Carda is the place to be. Kraft / Herman Family

“Best part of our trip!”
Reviewed 25 July 2012 for a stay in June 2012

What a magical place. We traveled Italy for 2 weeks. Villa Carda was our most memorable time. The place is beautiful and has all the comforts of home. The views are breathtaking. We had 7 adults and 4 boys between 9-12 years old. There was plenty of room. We didn't realize that most of the rooms were accessed from the outside of the building. It turned out to be great so each family had a little extra privacy. The beds were all about king size except for the 2 double single bed rooms which the boys all stayed in. The wellness spa was a treat. Our favorite part was having our meals on the covered deck. We used the wood burning pizza oven one night and it was our best meal. Not to hard to use. We also had a chef come the first night which was a great idea since we were tired from our travels. There was plenty of food for left overs and it was delicious. The wine cellar came in handy. Lot's of great wines and at resonable prices. The pool was great for the kids and adults too. All the boys loved playing golf! Andrea was very helpful and always available. A few things: make sure you get directions from Andrea beforehand. We tried to do it on our own and got very lost. For that matter, spend the extra money and get GPS in your car and carry a good map of Tuscany with you. Driving directions are difficult. There were only a few fans. We told Andrea that a few more were needed since there are no screens on some of the windows or in the rooms. The nights are mostly cool so having no a/c was really not an issue. Internet access was a little difficult. Some days we didn't have any and others we couldn't get it out of Italian. It was a great location. Only about 35 minutes to Arezzo. Arezzo and Cortona were are favorite places to visit. Also enjoyed the castle at Poppi for a 1/2 day treat. Boys loved it. We would stay here again. We loved it.

“The perfect family retreat”
Reviewed 17 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We stayed in Villa Carda for the 3rd year in a row and it feels like 'homecoming'. The villa itself is in a fantastic condition, well kept and renovated, but still in the beloved 'Tuscany' style. Each room has it's seperate bathroom (very clean and comfortable).
The view is magnificent overlooking an super neat and large lawn and green valleys away from the 'big city' (30 minute or so drive to Arezzo) , where kids can play soccer or play with their kites.
Next to the house there is a wellness center on the premises (exclusively for the guests) with a Jacuzzi, Sauna, a small gym with a bike etc. It also has a (heated) pool which is right next to the house - everything in perfect condition. And finally it has table tennis, satellite TV, free WLAN, a barbecue station etc. In 2012 the kitchen will be redone, so that it is more spacious (after the season, so no worries)
Andrea and his father are the perfect hosts taking care immediately in case there is a problem or support with restaurant recommendations etc.
The only small drawback is it's location: Being up on the hill, it can be sometimes cold at night sitting outside - so make sure than you bring enough sweaters if you are not travelling during hot summer.
All in all, it is the perfect family retreat, truely relaxing and extremely well kept. The rather remote location is an even stronger 'pro' if you are into a true 'winding down' modus.

“The perfect Tuscan wedding”

This place is more beautiful than pictures could describe. Andrea and his family were the perfect host for our week at Villa Carda. He and his wife even attended our wedding, which was such a special thing to us. There were 13 of us that stayed here for our wedding comfortably with an amazing cleanliness; each of our family have fond memories and many fun stories we will all cherish for a lifetime. Andrea and his family had everything under control. Furthermore, they arrived daily and made sure our needs were met at the villa, to suggested places to visit, even made reservations on our behalf. He even took my wife and the ladies into town the day of the wedding to shop at the local florist. The dinner that night was indescribable. The 6 course meal was made to satify every craving. The cooks were very attentive and knew when we needed the next course before we did; they laughed as we cheered and complimented the food. It was better than any 5 star restaurant I've ever been to. You do not see this attention and sincerity often and we are so grateful to have had this place for our wedding and to have met Andrea and his family. We can not wait to return!!
