Review 375: InTuscany, San Donato di Villa Arceno


Review by Gordon from USA

2bed/1bath house on estate near Castelnuovo Berardenga, Tuscany Chianti


July 2002, two weeks


On a hill overlooking pectacular views of vinyards and olive groves and the nearby hilltop town of St Gusme.

Nearby Amenities

Within 10 minutes driving were fine restaurants, supermarkets, coffee shops, pastry and wine shops. Also a Town Market once a week.

The House/Apartment

The villa was historic and was like living in some's own home. Which it is.


Lovely stone pattio where we ate at least once a day. Beautiful pool and gorgous gardens that were maintained almost daily.

Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Many antiques. Paintings. And comfortable furnishings.


Two beautiful bedrooms with extraordinary views and a charming large bathroom.



Problems or Bonuses

Many good; none bad.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

Ran like clockwork.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

We will stay here again without question.

Things to do in this area

The owner left a comprehensive folder of his (and now our) favorite restaurants, places to visit a varied as Mother Florence to a little restaurant in the hill of Chianti. One would need more than two weeks to visit all the places suggested.
