Carlo and Valentina,


Despite the chilly weather we have had a wonderful week.

Simone cooked out-of-this-world dinners and told us stories that made us laugh.

Marcella is the kindest and most wonderful housekeeper and amazing laundress.

Remus rebuilt beautiful fires and kept the place stocked with wood for chilly evenings. Always cheerful.

Paolo gave us lovely baskets and always smiled.

The house is wonderful, comfortable  and we all had a great time.

Thank you

From the Chamorro family.

First of all, what a beautiful place, truly magical. But what made the difference was Donatella, Claudio and Marcella.

Very polite and kind people that made our stay even more memorable. Hopefully my children Alberto (6 years old) and my daughter Annamaria (4 years old) remember this family trip.

My daughter Martina (three months) surely won’t… But we will remember all the moments.

Warm wishes and many thanks.

Alberto Chamorro.

It has been a really wonderful week for all of our family. We could not have hoped for a more idyllic setting for our annual holidays.
The time we spent here will forever remain in our collective memory


October 2018

AMAZING villa and an even better host!!! Since we were flying in the morning of the booking, Valentina invited us to her own house, made us lunch and gave us a room to rest while the house was getting ready. Super hospitality throughout the trip too – she organised a great olive oil factory visit for us and personally took us through it!

Thanks Valentina – we had an AMAZING time and will definitely recommend your house to friends and family

We’re sad to be leaving Villa Tavernaccia after an unforgettable stay in this beautiful setting. In particular Simone, Rafael, Paulo, Marcella and Remus have all been wonderful. Unfortunately our clothes seem to have shrunk in this climate – or could it possibly be Simone’s totally outstanding cuisine.
Thank you so much to everybody.

Our family of then had a perfect vacation. Everything about the beautiful villa is amazing. The attention to details, the cleanness, the charm and beauty of the surroundings areas provide a perfect place to enjoy the Tuscan countryside.
We were pleasantly surprised by the grandeur of Tavernaccia and the way the villa is cared for, it is obvious that it is well taking care of.
The vacation (and Villa) could not have been better
thank you,

Thank you so, so much. For an amazing time at this villa, the food was brilliant, the rooms “squeaky clean” and the facilities in general were always an open option to my family and I.
Having stayed here for three weeks this summer and for another week last, I would gladly say yes to an invitation back here.
Thank you again fir everything

Anywhere you go in life is the company you keep and meet.
So it was that we were amongst the dearest of friends, and the professionals we met could not have made our stay any more comfortable and enjoyable.
Of course the villa was magnificent: spacious, comfortable, decorated in style and with just the right amount of modern convenience.
I am not good enough a writer to explain/describe adequately the magnificence of the views and vistas… enough said!

Villa Tavernaccia is absolut perfection in every way. A very big slice of heaven! The fantastic and interesting history of the house (a hideout for bandits!), the splendor of the property, the house, the amazing views upon driving up the hill to arrive at the gates. Then the beautifully decorated interiors (got a peek at those in Elle Decor magazine) which is a perfect mix of beautiful antiques and contemporary touches (love the stripes on the walls, lampshades). You have created a real home for your family but also for your guests who feel like they are at their own home in your villa. Thank you for sharing your paradise with us. We are a group of ten – five couples- who are close friends celebrating one couple 60th birthday. We have had amazing dinners prepared by Donatella , many laughs at fun cocktails hours, (we declared the Leccio tree the Italian flag windlocks and gave everyone party bags with Italian postcards and gifts, old Italian movies and hats. My motto is “Bad in the devils”
Every detail at Villa Tavernaccia is perfection. You have thought of everything.

Grazie, per un buon soggiorno Tom and Woody di Toronto
Since you asked one tiny improvement on perfection … electricity by the bed side not connected to the main switch. That would allow phone chargers plus CPAP machines to function over night

Dopo due settimane è difficile dire arrivederci! We have all had a wonderful time – full of laughter, long discussions, trips to town and sites in the region, and forays into Firenze for shopping, visiting museums and walking along the Arno. We are luck to ha e friends on Florence and look forward to returning.
Un abbraccio Linda and David

Dear Owner,

I am so glad to leave a review on your beautiful villa. My top guest from Moscow and his family have recently terminated their excellent holidays at Villa Tavernaccia. The building’s location, the setting and the typical Tuscan landscape are absolutely stunning.  The immaculate lovely maintained garden,  warm enough in day time to enjoy the swimming pool while the evening breeze makes it ideal for outdoor dining, has been the perfect unique retreat for relaxation.  All rooms are comfortable and clean as well as the linen provided.
The kitchen is well equipped and very practical either for professional use, as you know, we have organized a nice birthday celebration. The villa’s frame and the professionality of Marcela and Remus has made the difference.  I really wish to book your villa again in the future.

Thank you so much and best regards,

Paola Colacicco
