Your home Villa Il Sogno is a truly lovely experience and we enjoyed all of its amenities, your many art books and books on the area, the pool, the gazebo (where we had our wedding ceremony) and all of the serenity that it provided. Your great room is a special place with the windows and light, we relaxed there together every evening. The pool is lovely and we enjoyed sitting and listening to peacocks, roosters and birds in the morning. We won’t miss the drive up to the Villa at night (:) but by the end of the week we were pro’s! We appreciated the recommendations of things to do, we did enjoy a day touring the Roman/Estruscan amphitheatre, wall and the museum, as well as lovely outdoor market in Fiesole. We also went to Malemmina Antico for dinner one night and the food was just wonderful. We will share our experience with our Tuscany bound friends in the future. Wishing you all our best.

We had a wonderful stay at your beautiful Italian home. Your villa is superb! Rossella was so good to us- her cooking is outstanding and she helped us navigate through Tuscany. Rossella made our stay especially wonderful and we will miss her cooking and kind demeanor. Rossella was a pleasant surprise- so thank you!!

Il Sogno is truly a dream house. We’ve been renting villas in Italy for over a decade and finally in Il Sogno we found the best. Even though its just 20 minutes from Florence, we felt we were deep in the country side. The house is up on a hill with amazing alternating views of undulating hills and flat farmland, especially from the divine infinity pool. I loved going for runs and walks on the road up to the house, four miles of winding narrow country road made shady with tall trees with ample opportunity to pick wild blackberries. The most striking difference between this house and those we had rented before was the quality of the furniture and kitchen. Previously, we had often felt like we had moved into someone’s inherited 1970s house, with old appliances, dishes, utensils and furniture. At Il Sogno, the house is very recently rebuilt and refurbished with amenities Americans are used to. The bathrooms are numerous, one per bedroom, all new and shiny, with proper water pressure; the house has air conditioning in all the bedrooms, screens on all the windows, internet and flat screen TVs, and the kitchen appliances are new and in very good condition. If by chance we had a problem, Rosella, the trusty house manager, was always handy to take care of it. The best for us was renting such a beautiful country villa so close to one of the most beautiful cities in the world. As city people, we thoroughly enjoyed spending the day exploring Florence and then having a barbecued dinner in the pretty gazebo, next to the peach tree orchard. Nestled among old pine, peach, olive and fig trees, the villa’s one drawback was the number of bees we encountered. Even this problem apparently has a simple solution when you present it to the lovely owners with the typically American “can-do” attitude: a specific kind of outdoor extermination at the right time of the year. All in all, our experience was wonderful and I would highly recommend this villa. – Sahba from New York, NY
