The Villa Matraia and the “Borgo” are surrounded by lovely, well maintained open spaces, similar to those you would find in an estate belonging to a prestigious ancient palazzo or villa. The Estate has a wonderful panoramic outdoor swimming pool and patio area built on a natural terrace on the hillside, and since it faces south, the area is bat...hed in sunlight all day long.
The Estate has been carefully renovated and restored in keeping with the rustic Tuscan style of that area and has been designed around a small square that leads to all of the apartment buildings – each one uniquely located, designed and furnished. The Villa Matraia, however, is located on one side of the Borgo and is set right in the heart of an ancient and prestigious parkland.
The Villa is a unique example of 16th Century architecture and thanks to a very careful restoration over the last few years, the Villa has been restored to its former glory and still retains its original Tuscan character and charm. The Villa’s former annexes have also been converted into several delightful farmhouse style apartments.
Since the Villa is very spacious, the Ground floor where the state rooms are, has been conserved in its original state, complete with all the antique furniture, living room with original wood fireplace and panoramic loggias (covered terraces), all of which is accessible to guests of the Estate.
The first floor of the Villa, however, has been transformed into several very spacious and luxury, panoramic apartments and the upper floors, further 7 beautifully furnished apartments.

The place is very nice and comfortable. However,the service received was very poor, the place was not clean, had no aC, No washing machine, no proper internet or sattilate connections. They charged us extra for linen and towels.
The swimming pool was dirty and had insects all over. During our stay for one complete week, the swimming pool was not cleaned.
Finally, the Gym equipment are very basic and in poor condition. Read more
I am very sorry to read you review and I will immediately call the property owners to find out what has happened. However, the person that has written the other review on Frantoio stayed the week after you and had a fantastic time and did not mention any of things you have mentioned here. It is hard to beleive that the swimming pool was never cleaned because the estate is very big and I am sure we would have received other complaints from the guests staying in the other properties. However, we take all comments seriously and that is why I want to investigate this matter further.

We all agreed our stay on Matraia Estate, in the Frantoio Villa was the holiday of a lifetime! - The villa was very clean and the beds extremely comfortable. The views were wonderful and the whole experience of staying in Tuscany was fantastic. Before arrival the booking was handled very efficiently and responses were prompt. Thank you from the Quattromini family (England) Read more
