What Past Guests Are Saying
Ann's review of Villa Piero
Our experience at Villa Piero exceeded our expectations in every way. The setting was breathtaking, the property was beautifully finished and maintained, and the whole experience was enhanced by the attentive thoughtfulness of the owners. Their unselfish hospitality and attention to the smallest details set the tone for a wonderful week for our group.
We loved the spectacularly renovated villa in such a beautiful, peaceful setting. In addition, the villa was so "comfortable" and we all felt instantly at home. The kitchen with its professional appliances made life very easy every day.
We took 5 day trips to various parts of Tuscany (thank you to ItaliaRoadrunners for the directions and details). It was very easy to jump on the "spiffy highway" and get to a completely different area of Tuscany. In the immediate area, the beautiful mountains were very scenic.
Thomas's review of Villa Piero
Our experience at Villa Piero was fabulous. The villa is a restored 500-year old building, which retained its old world charm, but was sufficiently modified to provide a very comfortable accommodation to our party of 12 (8 adults and 4 children). Overall, it was a great vacation for everybody and our week at Villa Piero was the highlight of it.
We chose this particular villa because of the glowing reports we read about the hosts, Nicola, Sarah and "Mama". Nicola and Sarah were most gracious, accommodating, and helpful and Mama's cooking was out of this world! The kids explored the chicken coop and proudly displayed a recently laid egg, but otherwise spent most of their time in the pool.
Diane's review of Villa Piero
Our group of 8, which included family and friends, had the most wonderful experience at Villa Piero! Nicola, Rosa, Sara and Federico were not just hosts, but they became family! They went above and beyond for our group to make us feel at home.
We loved the peacefulness and the view, the spaciousness of the villa and the property, the fact that everyone had their own bedroom and bath, the professional kitchen, but most importantly, the hospitality from Nicola and his family. Rosa's cooking was some of the best cuisine we had in Italy. Nicola would make us cappuccino every morning according to our schedule. With the beauty of the villa and the warmth of the owners, it was a memorable experience we will always treasure!
The beds are very hard! For Americans, we are not used to this. Mattresses that are a little softer would be in order. Also, with a large group, make sure you stagger your showers. The hot water would run out with a large group.
The property is about 20 minutes from Arezzo which is a very quaint and friendly town. We were also able to take the train to all the surrounding areas from the Arezzo train station. We fell in love with the city of Arezzo. It became our base camp for supermarkets, late night dinners (if we didn’t cook), the international food fair on Fridays, and a surprise treat of the Tuscany Wine Festival. The train station in Arezzo was very convenient and was our network for traveling on our day trips. And, the Avis rent-a-car was right across from the train station. Anghiari is a must-see little town driving distance from the villa. Also, take the back way to Cortona from the villa. The view is spectacular from the villa.
Michael's review of Villa Piero
Everything I hoped it would be!
Privacy and the warmth of the owners of the property.
The fact that I had to come home.
The panoramic view from every window in the building.
Linda 's review of Villa Piero
Our group of 8 couldn't have been happier celebrating our anniversaries together at Villa Piero. We've traveled together and rented villas in the past but none have satisfied like this one. Prior to our arrival, we were concerned about the owners being on site. Our concerns were quickly assuaged. Nicola, Sara and Rosa were present but never intrusive. In fact, they contributed significantly to the success and enjoyment of our holiday.
We were enthusiastically met and welcomed by Nicola, the owner and retired banker. In very short order he was serving cocktails while describing his recent restoration of the property. Each morning he was available to serve complimentary cappuccinos from his very own coffee bar. As the renovation had been done within the past 5 years or so, all the amenities were clean and modern. The commercial kitchen and en suite bathrooms were wonderful. Each room has screens on the windows (which was unusual and a plus) and each bedroom had a portable fan. There was no air conditioning. Our week there in Sept was hot but we were all comfortable with windows open, the natural breezes and the fans. Sara, Nicola's daughter and the primary English speaker, gave us a thorough orientation to the house and the workings of the kitchen. The 4 minute commercial dishwasher was amazing!
The villa itself was beautifully laid out with many different rooms for reading, conversation, listening to music, playing games etc without ever feeling cramped. The outside seating areas were very comfortable. The villa came with an assortment of games and books, a computer (no printer), a ping-pong table, an unheated pool (with amazing views) and a bocce ball court on the lower level--a short walk from the house. Pool towels were also included. They've just tried to think of everything.
The highlight was getting to know the owners. They were a delightful family of very hard working and pleasant people. We had prearranged for dinner to be served to us on the night of our arrival. Well, Mama Rosa outdid herself. We were stunned by the feast that was served. The quality and quantity surpassed any meal we had in Italy. Three hours later, Nicola and Sara were still serving us. Before the end of that lovely meal, we unanimously decided that Rosa could prepare dinner for us again on Monday, Wednesday and Friday evening. That was the smartest decision we made. I can't say enough about the quality and creativity of her culinary skills. Much of the food, herbs and berries came from their huge garden. We missed pizza night which, I understand, was a big mistake!
The hilltop location of the villa has amazing views of the surrounding hills and valleys. The air was fresh, the night sky was beautiful and it was peacefully quiet. One could easily never leave the property--though we did several times. While the location was remote, it's also centrally located for easy day tripping to several hill towns (Sienna, Cortona, Assisi, Montepulciano) and to Florence on the train from Arezzo.
Thomas's review of Villa Piero
Our group of eight cousins and four friends truly enjoyed our week at Villa Piero. This was a beautifully restored Villa, high on a mountain, in eastern Tuscany. The property is enclosed within a large gated yard, and had extensive mountain views and gardens. The yard was great for exercise walking and morning work-outs. At night, the property is very quiet; the stars and moon spectacular and the outdoor couches and chairs comfortable and perfect for long talks into the evening. The Villa was lovely, inside and out. The owners were very welcoming and gave us gifts of lemon cake, wine, fresh garden produce, herbs and eggs. Nicola made us cappuccinos (for free) every morning in the espresso bar room. The Villa bedrooms were all very spacious and decorated with antiques, and the bathrooms were excellent. The common spaces were many; great for relaxing and socializing. Some of us swam in the pool, but the water was cold in late September. Due to the location being a bit remote, we planned day trips to nearby towns and spent evenings at the Villa. The commercial kitchen was wonderful for the many cooks in our group. The owners, at our request, also cooked for us for 2 nights. A Pizza night, cooked in the outdoor wood burning oven, and a special birthday dinner. The food Rosa (mother) cooked was outstanding - some of the best we had in Tuscany! - and the price very modest. At the birthday dinner, she made 15 appetizers! The warm and engaging personalities of Nicola (father), and Sara (daughter) made us most welcome. We will never forget them.
The quality and spaciousness of the Villa. I have stayed at 3 Tuscan Villas, and this was the most beautiful by far. Nicola restored it himself over 5 years, while working at his regular job. He shared before and after photos with us. It was great to have Internet access as well for researching directions and highlights for different day trips and for checking email. A printer would be a wonderful addition. Guests could cover printing costs with a bit higher Internet use charge, perhaps.
The beds were all very hard, which is typical in Italy, but some of our group had a very hard time:) accommodating to the beds. Perhaps some pillow top mattress pads would help.
We did day trips to the nearby towns of Arezzo, Monterchi, Sansapolcro, Anghiari (an old medieval walled city), and Cortona. Others in our group travelled further to Siena, and the Chianti region (Greve in Chianti, where there is a fantastic butcher shop) and Gaiole in Chianti for wine tasting.
