“Excellent villa, really amazing ”
Reviewed 14 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The villa is in a stunning location, with amazing views, very spacious and roomy. The pool and gazebo provide an excellent area to eat in the evening when it is warm. Has full facilities (BBQ, Hot Tub, kitchen, etc) all in excellent condition. The villa was kept clean every day and Stella was happy to organise any tours or restaurant for us. We did a E Bike tour, had a chef dinner and wine tasting at the villa and visited Florence, Assisi and Cortona which are all easy drives or on the train from Arezzo. A taxi to Arezzo is around €15 so it is cheap for 5-7 people to get into the local town. Supermarket, local bakery etc is 5 mins drive and there is an excellent Winery and Restaurant literally at the end of the drive

“The perfect place to celebrate in style - Villa Cristina”
Reviewed 14 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We were looking for somewhere very special to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday with five friends and we found exactly that at Villa Cristina.

Villa Cristina is beautifully positioned on a hill overlooking Arezzo - stunning views with easy access to explore the Tuscan countryside; Assisi, Cortona, Sienna and Florence all an easy day trip by car or train.

The Villa has everything you could possibly want or need - with a great deal of thought having gone into what guests are looking for, from the provision of Villa Cristina wine and olive oil so you are never in danger of running out, a hot tub, daily cleaning, and two dishwashers for domestic ease. There are five comfortable double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, and plenty of space for everyone to find a quiet corner as well as come together and party in the poolside Gazebo.

Stella & Frederica are the perfect hosts. From the time we enquiried about the property until the morning we left they were attentive, discreet and focused on us enjoying our holiday. We arranged before we arrived for a chef to cook a special dinner in the Villa on my husbands birthday. A wonderful Tuscan menu that surpassed anything we ate the rest of the trip; homemade truffle pasta, meat cooked over an open fire and a traditional Italian birthday cake - delicious!

We also arranged a Tuscan wine tasting one evening, hired e-bikes to explore the local area (which were delivered to Villa the evening before to ensure we had a full day at our disposal) and a relaxing massage to help our tired legs recover. These activities were arranged with minimal fuss by Stella - who ensured all went smoothly during our stay.

However the highlight of the holiday is undoubtedly Villa Cristina itself. You feel as if you are in your own private world surrounded by amazing views - you can happily spend you day following the sun around the pool, outdoor eating areas and into the Gazebo as night falls - and we did frequently! The sunsets are beautiful - we have the hundreds of photos we took as each one seemed more wonderful than the last, to prove it!

A special place which ensured we created very special memories of our 50th celebration.

Thank you so much to Helen for her wonderful words and for her detailed explanation of the villa and all the activities to do during the holiday!
It's really a pleasure to read Helen's words about our host work! We try to be always present and available to our guests, but without being intrusive and it's great that Helen has perfectly understood this!
We are very happy that Helen and her friends loved the villa, our landscapes, our surroundings and countless activities to do in Arezzo and Tuscany!
For our part, we have loved this fantastic group of truly educated, respectful and kind people!
It would be a dream if all our guests would always be like them!
Really hoping to have them again at Villa Cristina!

“We felt like nobility in elegant large house, with unquestionably greatest view in Arezzo !”
Reviewed 4 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The Villa Cristina was already exciting, when we have arrived through the large drive way. The classy, elegant decoration of the interior rooms with warm colours and tastefully chosen furniture and fabrics made our heart beat higher. The kitchen is fully equipped. We found the villa and its large surroundings (including the pool area) to be impeccably kept, and quite private. The location on the top of the hills above Arezzo, but so close to the city center, is unique. We were having our drinks on the terrace by the pool enjoying the last warm sun in September and the evenings we have spent in the excellent glass gazebo tasting the gurmet food of Tuscany accompanied of course with glasses of red wine and jazz music ! One of us described it as "fantasy come true". Simply wonderful and relaxing. Our daytours to Chianti region, Cortona, Montepulciano and Montalcino made it the perfect mix of relax and culture. We discovered also some really nice restaurants in the close Arezzo, not speaking about the beautiful historical monuments and plazzas of this city. Next year we will surely book the Villa Cristina again. It not only met our expectations - it exceeded them. We will be back and can only recommend the Villa Cristina and all of the hosts Stella and Federica and Nicola - who know, how to arrange to let their guests feel like at home. Nicola was a great help ! He gave us lot of tips and good suggestions.
Thank you very much !!!

“Perfect family villa in an absolutely stunning location”
Reviewed 3 October 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We spent a wonderful week with family at Villa Cristina. The villa met all our expectations. The location is superb - secluded, high up on the hillside with wonderful views of Arezzo below and yet convenient for shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. The facilities were second to none - everything one could wish for and plenty to keep all ages amused. The pool side gazebo was the icing on the cake - a wonderful space for relaxing, eating, listening to music, and sheltering from the thunderstorms! The owners of the villa, Stella and Federica, could not have been more charming or helpful. A truly memorable holiday and we hope to be able to return one day.

“Perfect place for Holiday”
Reviewed 12 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017

Villa Cristina is a great place to stay. The Place is on a Mountain and you got a special view over the City. The communication was from begin the booking till the end of staying excellent. The check-in was easy and we were greeted warmly. Stella, her husband and Frederica are very friendly. The pool was bigger than expected and also in the jacuzzi you can spend hours. The casino (pool house) is large and offers space for many people and is perfect to have dinner together, to grill or simply to end the evening. The House is very big and we got much space for all our stuff. In addition, you can book a lot of extras like massages, quad-tours, get a taste of the wine, try some delicious wines (the house wine is very delicious) and do many other things. 1 time a day comes a cleaning woman, the rooms and the house clean. The beautiful old town is about 15-20 minutes away by car. There you can also eat delicious and see beautiful buildings and shop. All my friends and I enjoyed it and it was all better than expected. I could now write another 1000 words about this beautiful place, but I'm still a bit speechless when I think of the time and place and miss it already.
