We recently stayed at the beautiful villa and it was a wonderful experience. The location of the villa in the countryside of Tuscany was central to being able to drive and explore other towns, communities, and vineyards in the area. At the end of the day, we landed back at the villa and its majestic setting, where we could cook our own meals and sleep soundly. The driver that we used was very friendly and helpful. In addition, Mariella, the housekeeper was extremely helpful with arranging restaurant reservations and providing an explanation of the workings of the home. We look forward to returning to the villa soon. It was truly a great get away for our first trip to Italy.

Thank you so much for opening your lovely villa to Nicolle and her friends from The Texas Hill Country. This has been on my "Bucket List' for decades, just waiting for the perfect time in life when friends could take time away for the special trip. Your home is lovely, we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The beds were comfortable and I really appreciate the lovely linens and especially feather pillows! You've created such a beautiful space. Our favorite day trip was to a winery in Greve, Vignamaggio, were we toured the winery and then had an amazing lunch.

Lovey villa and home: perfect for a family reunion. Some warning needed beforehand of flies and mosquitos so that spray brought. Dog noise also invasive at times. Thank you to Mariella for her help. (PS - Wifi slow, so if you need to work it is difficult.)

A brief note and a huge "Thank You" for allowing Tracy and I to celebrate our 49th wedding anniversary in your fabulous villa. Your property far exceeded any expectation that we may have had. Our invited guests were truly excited about the total "Tuscany Experience" which was made possible by the two weeks we enjoyed in the villa! Our first trip to Italy could not have been more special... Thanks to Mariella And Filippo and of course "Chef Grazia/Carlo".... These folks made our visit even more special!

Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your beautiful villa. Italy is so beautiful and even more beautiful in person. Thank you so much for showing us around and giving us advice on what to see and where to go. The Rome tour guide you referred us to "Daniel" was awesome. We are so blessed to have this opportunity to spend in Italy. Thank you so much again.

What a wonderful Golden Wedding celebration we had in this beautiful villa joined by our two daughters and their families. The generous space and comfortable bedrooms suited our group of ten including two teenagers and two little boys. Our week was memorable and such a happy time. Thank you.

Congratulations on your beautiful rustic abode..... Villa Santa Margherita. It's beauty is beyond words. It's age of 250 years is intriguing and mystifying. I wonder about past times and the many others who have passed through. Thank you for this WOW opportunity to experience such beauty.... to experience Italy with our facilities. God bless you 1,000 fold for everything.

What a wonderful 3 weeks at Villa Santa Margherita! Full of family & friends, big outside dinners, splashing in the pool, and great adventures. Favorite outings were to Lake Trasimeno, Cortona and Sienna. We will treasure this family time forever. Grazie mille!

Wonderful restful holiday (hot and sunny). Well equipped villa and clean. Enjoyed the great Tuscany views. Local restaurant (La Terrazza) good food and plenty of it. Also, local chef who cooked at the Villa for us, gave us a lovey meal. Mariella excellent English and very attentive and helpful.
