“A delightful Tuscan experience”
Reviewed 6 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We greatly enjoyed our stay in Cypresses Villa from start to finish. It was in so many ways a perfect Tuscan experience. The location is lovely, in the countryside just a few minutes from Castellina in Chianti, and situated in a rolling valley among olive groves and with beautiful vistas from the bedroom windows. It is beautifully situated in easy striking distance from Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, and the other major Tuscan highlights (our favourites were Volterra and Siena).
The villa is a grand old stately home with more room, and rooms, than we could have imagined. The dining room and lounge rooms are very comfortable. It even has a grand piano, which is in tune, although only a few of the higher register keys work! The kitchen is a rustic, country kitchen with functional appliances – no microwave, but this didn’t concern us. The outdoor areas, with multiple sitting areas, a wonderful pool, and lots of different parts of the garden for our children to explore, were delightful. Lorenzo gave us many suggestions for things to do in the neighbouring areas, including a recommendation for Il Re Galo restaurant in Castellina which is an absolute must! (Try a carafe of the house red, which is a terrific Chianti from Castello di Vicchiomaggio in Greve in Chianti – best house red we have tasted in many years.)
Note that the access road from the main road is a steep, rough, gravel and stone road, which takes some getting used to. It is 2km of bumps, and on the way up requires first gear for most of the way. It would be nice for this road to be improved but it wouldn’t put us off returning.

“Charming staying and great location”
Reviewed 13 March 2015 for a stay in July 2014

Cypresses Villa was the perfect house to stay for us, my wife and I had peaceful and relaxing time sitting outside, drinking a wine and reading, while the kids had great time in the fields, it was everything safe so we let the kids often alone and that was just great and relaxing, anyone who has three young children knows that I mean.
The house is in great condition and the owner was available at any time we needed him.
The location is just perfect , we explored a lot around there, easy drive to any place we wanted to go and finally back at the house we could relax .
It is not a luxury destination and the house is not a luxury house but the was a charming atmosphere and we didn't want something modern and posh instead we found what we were expecting to find, a cozy italian house with style and originality mix with tradition


My wife and I travelled to Tuscany with our 3 kids last summer and decided to rent a house in the countryside of Tuscany, it was not our first experience in Italy and neither was the first time we rented a house for our vacation.

Liked best: the location and the house were great
Liked least: I am not used to sleep in the countryside and strangely the city chaos is less noisy to my hears than crickets
