The perfect Tuscan escape!! Franco and his family are the most gracious hosts. His home is absolutely beautiful from the house to the grounds and pool. But it also has... read more a very well stocked kitchen and also comes with A/C and mosquito screens!! He had breakfast, cakes and fresh homemade bread for us. Franco also helped us book a dinner at the amazing local restaurant Da Benito. Would highly recommend this place and only wish I booked for a longer stay. Grazie mille!

Stop searching right now and book this villa!!! Staying at Franco's villa was the highlight of my entire family's trip to Italy. I wish I had saved myself the hours... read more of researching and just booked this place when I first came across it. When we arrived and were greeted by Franco, we all spent our first night just in awe of the place and it was the perfect way to start our Tuscany trip on the highest note.
First, Franco and his family are incredibly welcoming and made us feel at home right away. We asked them to prepare about six dinners and lunches for us during our stay, and the food was the best we had in Italy. The dishes and courses were so thoughtful, and they were able to accommodate our dietary restrictions with care. It was so nice to come home after a long day of touring knowing there would be a delicious home cooked meal to enjoy, and on quiet days by the pool it was relaxing knowing we didn't have to cook during our holiday. Franco's wife is an excellent chef, and we are still talking about her recipes and desserts. We also had a pasta-making class with Franco one evening and highly recommend it for a fun family activity without having to leave the grounds.
Second, the villa itself is even more beautiful than the pictures. It has all of the amenities and features of a newer build, but is built in the traditional Tuscan style, so you feel you are getting the best of both worlds without sacrificing anything. Each of us had our own bedroom and bathroom, and there were so many common spaces inside and out that we never felt crowded. It was nice to work off some of the pasta by going for a jog around town and finishing with a workout on the calisthenics equipment at the rear of the property. We swam in the beautiful pool every day, and there is no feeling quite like seeing the sun set over the gorgeous villa with a glass of wine in hand. I want to stay here every season just to see what it's like!
Third, the location is fantastic as a jumping pad to so much of Tuscany. We wanted to be in a semi-urban setting so that we had some amenities around, while still feeling like we were in a quiet retreat, and this place checked both of these boxes. We visited Lucca, Pisa, Cinque Terre, several wineries, and more within easy drives. The villa itself is in the quaint town of Orentano, and there are several restaurants, a gelateria, pharmacy, small grocery, and more all within a 5-10 minute walk. We had takeout pizza one night from Pizzeria 50 Special (4 min walk away) and it was quite tasty. Another night we ate at Pizzeria Vito re della Pizza (8 min walk away) and it was one of our favourite meals. Franco helped us make the reservation in advance which we appreciated.
I repeat, do yourself a favour and just book this villa!! Franco and his wonderful family will make sure it's an experience you won't soon forget. I know we won't!!

We had a lovely stay at the Stone house. Franco is an exceptional host. He and his family go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and... read more comfortable. The house is absolutely charming! We are a family of 4 adults and the house could easily fit a group 3 x our size. There are so many charming areas both inside and outside to relax. The private pool was fabulous. We were able to visit many lovely areas of Tuscany using this as home base. Franco provided excellent recommendations for area highlights. Do not hesitate to book this special place.

What an amazing home and host! The house is everything you see in the photos and more. Our two families (4 adults, 5 kids) were completely comfortable, and... read more the amenities (from the pool to the multiple coffee makers) were top class. Franco and his family welcomed us in person (they live on site and are always available for any needs), and cooked us a requested welcome dinner the first night, served up on the beautiful outdoor patio. The kids swam in the pool everyday, and we took day trips to see all that Tuscany has to offer. A highlight was our meal at Da Benito (5 minute walk from the house) that Franco helped arrange. If you stay here you have to eat at this restaurant! You won't regret it. All in all, I couldn't recommend this place highly enough as a relaxing, and beautiful place to be based for a visit to Tuscany!

Franco's villa is so amazing! The house is very well located for exploring Tuscany but is also so comfortable and beautiful that you may prefer to just grab some... read more groceries, cook out, and hang out around the pool (as we did one of the days). And Franco and his family go out of their way to make you feel welcome. We would highly recommend and look forward to returning!
