Palazzolaccio, June 2012

I can't recommend the experience we had at Palazzolaccio more highly.

From the first contact with Merrion Charles via the internet to our sad, final drive down the driveway it was an experience we will all remember forever. The villa is beautifully decorated, very clean and the attention to detail exceptional. Palazzolaccio is in a perfect position to explore all that beautiful Val d'Orcia has to offer an area full of so much to see, a hidden paradise. We were aware that much of driving is on dirt roads and it was a perfect area for much of our group, who loved cycling. Those of us who didn't were happy to sit by the pool, go for walks or find a cosy spot in one of the many comfortable rooms.

When we arrived we had thought we would have a couple of meals 'in house'. As it turned out Cristina was such a sensational cook we had every evening meal at the villa..they were all exceptional and unbelievable value! Christina was more than happy to cater to all our needs including time, menu and special dietary needs. The wine selection was great and very reasonably priced.

Elisa greeted us when we got there, her English was very good. She was on hand all hours to help us with all our needs. She organized bike hire, booked restaurants, organized spas and arranged a very memorable wine tour in Montelcino.

I can't recommend the villa highly enough and the wonderful crew of people that come with it to make it the perfect stay. Merrion Charles being the lynch pin, was on hand all hours and always responded quickly to emails and enquiries.

Podere Sant Adele, Tuscany August 2013

We had the most amazing villa outside of an adorable old town, Cetona. We visited briefly the towns of siena, montepulciano, chiusi, citta della pieve, san casciagno di bagni and sarteano. Saw a lot and also chilled a lot in the villa which was sooooo perfect i will forever dream of it. Chickens laying eggs for breakfast, picking san marzano tomatoes from the garden and grapes and plums from the poolside. Gorgeous and plenty of different dining tables for al fresco enjoyment. There were hammocks about for afternoon naps, lush rosemary and lavender creating a heavenly smell and great views in all directions. We felt very comfortable inside the home which was decorated in elegant and traditional tuscan fashion. I could have stayed forever.

Villa Tombolino, Tuscany - July 2013

Spencer and I have just arrived at our own house in Bass Harbor, Maine. On our way we have visited Rome, London, and New Hampshire. Our friends and family joins us in expressing awe that the week at the Villa Tombolino was amazing, a once in a life time, truly memorable, magical time. We are all wishing we could continue to have that breakfast tart. Giovanna and her team treated us to delicious meals. Elisa went out of her way to help us. She took my daughter, Margaret, to a doctor who successfully treated her dislocated hip. The five children were delighted with the swimming pool.
Thank you for all your patience, expert planning, and attentive correspondence to make the week such an outstanding success. It was a very lucky day nearly two years ago when I saw you mentioned in "Departures.".
