“Above all expectations”
Reviewed 19 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We were there with extended family, 20 persons, include youth and babies.
First sight of the Villa from the small path lead to it left us stunning. it was beautiful sight, the Villa, surrounding and the scenery.

We parked 5 cars at the front easy and comfort.
Inside the Villa we had every thing needed for an excellent vacation, many rooms, each equipped with all needed accessories.
upstairs was the main happening, the wide and well equipped kitchen, helped us produce amazing meals (manly breakfast & dinner)
the large living room with the beautiful fireplace was the gathering area for everyone.

Few words about the wonderful hosts, which were there for any request but did not interrupt

Thank you for a memorable vacation !!

“Beautiful Place, Wonderful Hosts”
Reviewed 9 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The pictures depicting the Villa really don't do it justice. It is all they indicate and much more. I brought 16 Children and grandchildren, including a nephew and family to the Villa. I selected it based on the photos and reviews.

We arrived, in two 9 passenger vans, driving down a hill and back up to the Villa you see in the photos. Michael and Sonja were there to greet us with warm smiles, handshakes and hugs. When we stepped into the Villa, the interior was beautiful, cozy and warm. It felt like we were away somewhere and had just gotten back home.

We flew into Florence and drove to Sinalunga. By agreement Sonja had prepared a light lunch and an anti pasta and lemon chicken for dinner. It was delicious. We did a lot of travelling so we really did not have a chance to have Sonja cook for us. On the Friday evening before we left, I asked her for a Pizza Party. It was wonderful and delicious. She is a very talented young woman with a pixie smile. And not to leave him out, Michael is a hardworking, very congenial, person who loves people and is happy when you're happy. Sonja prepared the Pizzas, Michael ran the Brick oven and baked them.

Here in South Carolina, I proclaim myself the thin crust Pizza King. Sonja's Pizza leaves my title in serious doubt.

Michael and Sonja live in a separate house a few yards away. They never intruded but if ever you needed something, they miraculously appeared. One of my sons drove a van into a ditch. 17 of us struggled to get it out. We were getting frustrated when Michael and Sonja suddenly showed up in a 4 wheel drive and she towed us out.

All my children agree that they are the nicest, caring people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Not everyone makes me bubble over with such enthusiasm. These two people do. Below is a question "Would you recommend..........to a friend" ABSOLUTELY !!! And....not just to a friend but to everyone.

“Fairytale Wedding!”
Reviewed 2 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We were searching for a venue for a destination wedding and were lucky enough to come across this amazing villa. My husband and I flew to Italy and stayed here with 11 family members for 4 nights. The villa is enormous and we had more than enough room. We asked Sonja to cook most of our meals and they were definitely some of the most delicious throughout our tour of Italy! The grounds are beautiful and an easy drive to neighboring towns - the wine tours are a must! Most importantly though was our wedding experience. Sonja and Michael were so thoughtful and creative and made our day so much more than we could have ever imagined! The stay was amazing and we will be forever grateful for making our wedding day absolutely perfect!!

“Absolutely amazing!!”
Reviewed 11 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

When you pull off of the main road, you pull onto a gravel road which runs through the woods and up to the main gate. Once you pull through the gate, it opens up and you immediately see the villa. IT'S BEAUTIFUL!! The architecture outside and inside of the villa is wonderful! It's what an Italian villa should look like. It's not modern architecture and that's what I loved most of all. The villa is huge! 23 people sleep comfortably! It is everything that was advertised and MORE!! When we pulled up to the villa we were greeted by Sonja and Michael, the caretakers of the property. Two of the best people you will ever meet! They took us on a tour of the property. The villa and the grounds are clean and maintained beautifully! Sonja and Michael went above and beyond in taking care of all of us. We were there for Thanksgiving, a wedding, and a family vacation. Italians don't celebrate Thanksgiving so we thought it would be impossible to get a turkey, but Sonja and Michael found us two HUGE turkeys and Michael even cooked them for us. We immediately took to Sonja and Michael and invited them to spend Thanksgiving with us and our entire family. The next day was our wedding, so we went on a walk of the property trying to find a good location. There are just so many great choices. We were hoping for an outside wedding, but it didn't seem like mother nature was going to be cooperative. Sonja and Michael made a wonderful suggestion of an inside space to use for the wedding and we changed our mind on having an outside wedding. They set everything up for the wedding. They cooked the entire meal and it was all wonderful!! The villa is located in Sinalunga, just outside of the city limits. But it's just a short drive to several grocery stores, restaurants, and gas stations. It is in a great location with short drives all around Tuscany. We have already started planning our next visit to Villa Scopetello and are recommending it to all of our friends. Do not hesitate to visit this place because it is absolutely wonderful!! And Sonja and Michael will take great care of you!!

“The Most Wonderful Place Ever”

October 4-October 11, 2014
Family and friends stayed a week at this wonderful place called Villa Scopetello. One of the most beautiful, peaceful places in Tuscany. Sonja and Michael the caretakers were wonderful in every way. The Villa comes complete with 2 kitchens, large spacious living spaces, bedrooms, and even 2 horses, chickens, ducks, cats, dog, zip line for the children, play area, pool, tennis court and even a 9 hole golf course specially designed by Michael. The property boasts olive trees and scenery you will never forget. They even offer meals cooked after a long day visiting local towns or visiting a winery. Sonja even will do a cooking class/dinner for the guests who are staying at the Villa. We did that and had so much fun. Actually everything was fun and perfect. Michael and Sonja offer suggestions for local fare and places to go and see. And staying at the Villa for a day and just enjoying the grounds and scenery was wonderful. I cannot say enough about our trip to Villa Scopetello. A wonderful place to spend a vacation. It would also be a wonderful place for a wedding or reunion.
