“Wonderful location, warm friendly welcome.”
The house and pool at Gatto are delightful, and the owners extremely friendly and welcoming, especially with the frequent gifts on the doorstep of fabulous fresh vegetables from the garden! The owners do not speak English so a little bit of Italian does help, although they are happy to switch to French if you speak any of that.The house was very clean and well appointed with everything you needed, and the linen was changed half way through our stay. The pool was also very well cared for and beautifully set up with sun shades, chairs etc. It is quite deep except at the shallow end steps so those staying with young children should not leave them unattended. Although the pool is nominally shared with the owners and guests at the other let property we had it virtually to ourselves and so it felt like it was all our own. The house is set in a rural location and is typically Tuscan in style, with lovely views of the countryside. The only two negative points would be that you can hear the noise from the nearby road and railway and that there were mosquitoes about, especially in the evenings, so do take insect repellant with you. It was an ideal central location for exploring Tuscany and we were able to see a large part of the area. Although it is perfectly easy to get to both Siena and Florence by train a car is definitely a great advantage if you want to get to all the fabulous fortified hill towns. All in all, highly recommended!
The bed linens were rather old and the couch very old.However there were many aspects that exceeded expectations so overall I was very satisfied.
“Wonderful Place to Stay”
What a beautiful place! We spent a week here in august 2011 and it just wasn't long enough. The villa was lovely. Very spacious and well equipped. We were greeted on arrival by the owners, who are so helpful. We were very well looked after and often found ourselves being presented with baskets of fresh tomatoes & basil picked from their garden. The villa has use of a private terrace which is not overlooked and leads out to a garden area complete with small swing & slide for little ones. The pool has to be one of the nicest I have ever enjoyed spending time lazing next to! I would point out that it is very deep, but there are large steps at one end making it suitable for less confident swimmers. However I would be mindful with very young children. Our son is 14 and never tired of jumping in! The villa is well placed for visiting both Florence & Siena with the main link road between the two a short drive away. The walled town of Monteriggioni is about 10 mins drive and well worth a visit. If you have kids who like their Playstation's and have the game 'Assassins Creed' they will tell you this is were the 2nd game is based. Best way to get teenagers sightseeing (and you out for lunch!). There is a well stocked supermarket approx 5 mins drive away and 2 minutes down the road is a local pizzeria for when you don't feel like cooking! This was our first visit to Italy, and definitely won't be our last. Hubby & Son described the week spent here as 'awesome', 'amazing' & 'totally brilliant'. I would call it 'a little slice of heaven'. We will definitely stay here again.
“Wonderful hosts, large accomodation with excellent outdoor space”
Hosts were very warm and welcoming, regularly providing us with vegetables and hers from the garden. The pool area was second to none and the accommodation was spacious and well proportioned. Very quiet surrounded by gardens and orchards.
“A delightful home base from which to explore beautiful Tuscany”
A comfortable villa that became our home away from home. Jeremy and Laura were helpful and welcoming. The villa was spacious, clean and comfortable. The pool was secluded and well kept. Leo the cat became a good friend and Helga the Labrador was great fun. The fresh vegetables and herbs plus grapes were simply fabulous. All in all a wonderful spot and experience. We highly recommend it to all. The Blackburn,s and Pasquini,s from Toronto, Canada.
“Beware of the dog”
Please see the review of Porcile, which we rented at the same time for our family group. The dog isues are dealt with there! Il Gatto was a lovely big property with more than enough room for four and it was great to have separate bathrooms. Well equipped kitchen. Lots of room to sit around inside and outside and a good property for family groups - son, daughter in law and new baby had adjoining property, Porcile, which gave them privacy but was convenient for family meals etc. Convenient location. but close to motorway ,and traffic noise is quite audible, so not entirely tranquil.
Response from the manager The Labrador was a puppy last year (2009) - she is much quieter now, has been trained and the owner has said she is happy to keep her in their courtyard if guests find her a nuisance. She loves being around people but can be kept in if not wanted!
“The best holiday we have had in Italy !”
We had the most wonderful time at Il Gatto. The apartment was absolutely superb with everything you could want to make it as comfortable as possible and the surroundings were just magnificent !! The pool was unbelievable !!!!! The village of Monterriggioni is such a pretty place and well worth a vist. You are central to many places to visit and the most glorious eateries ranging from the local Osteria to full blown 5* restaurants. The Doctor and his wife were wonderful hosts who brought us little treats from their farm throughout the two weeks. They really made us feel extremely welcome. This was a very special holiday for us as we took my parents for a last look around Tuscany. We have been away with them to Italy many times before and it holds very special memories for us. We would most definitely recommend this vacation home to anyone and everyone !!
