Perfect villa in beautiful part of Tuscany
Ideal location, beautiful villa. Ian made booking and planning very easy.
Beautiful villa in beautiful surroundings
This is a wonderful villa in an almost perfect location. We could spend hours just looking at he view from the terrace across the rolling fields. When it gets too hot, the pool is excellent relief. The villa is comfy inside and well appointed. It seemed to have everything we needed, but we spent very little time there.
This side of Tuscany seems much quieter than the west but with just as much charm and plenty to see and explore. The villa is just outside the village and is extremely quiet and undisturbed. Everywhere we went the food and wine was delicious and inexpensive and the people extremely friendly. We managed an ideal mix of relaxation and activity.
Stunning home in a beautiful and relaxing location
We had an absolutely fantastic two week stay at Villa Bengodi. We were two families, (4 adults and 5 children) and the villa was spot on in terms of size and facilities for us. The house had literally everything we needed to make ourselves at home. The huge swimming pool, gardens and amazing views made this a very special holiday for both adults and children. So much space and privacy for swimming, exploring and just relaxing.
The location is an ideal base for experiencing real Italian life (very few tourists), with great local restaurants serving delicious traditional Tuscan food and welcoming families. There is ample opportunity to explore the more famous historic towns and cities if you don't mind driving further afield, or closer lovely local towns with restaurants, woods, walks, churches, shops and bars.
This home is beautifully decorated and a real holiday treat. We went with a view to exploring Tuscany and Umbria (which we did a little) but found the location just too perfect to want to move very far. We managed the holiday goal of just switching off and making the most of the perfect, peaceful and thoroughly relaxing surroundings, usually very hard to do with 5 children under 8, but they were constantly occupied with the pool and garden!
Ian was very helpful when booking the villa and providing local information. We could not recommend this villa and location enough if you want to switch off, relax and enjoy all that Italy has to offer from a very comfortable and beautiful traditional Tuscan home.
Beautiful house in stunning location.
We stayed for a week in the wonderful Villa Bengodi but I wish it had been a month. The house has been beautifully renovated and is simply but comfortably furnished. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the view from the terrace took our breath away. The kids were straight in the pool before we'd even unpacked and the adults enjoyed a nice chilled bottle of Prosecco overlooking the hills. We had day trips to Florence and Siena which are lovely and the local town of Anghiari is very pretty. The second half of the week brought a heatwave so we spent most of our time lying in the shade by the huge pool with the occasional dip to cool down. The house is very rural so if you like to be close to the action it's probably not the most suitable but if you're happy to drive there are some wonderful places to visit for a day. Ian was very helpful prior to our stay and he and Marie even moved out a day early to accommodate us. We had a fantastic time, many thanks.
A fabulous family house.
A beautiful rural property with amazing views. We shared the property with another family and we had plenty of space. The children had lots of fun in the large heated pool and the outdoor terrace was great for eating meals together and barbecues. The owners were very helpful and we liked their recommendations for restaurants. A great family holiday home.
We are glad you had a good time!
Beautiful villa and pool
Villa Bengodi is a beautifully restored Tuscan villa with an fantastic pool and the most gorgeous views of the countryside. We had a fantastic week staying here. There were 4 children in the group who were kept very happy by spending time in the pool. The views of the countryside were particularly beautiful from the terrace where we had our lunches. Locally, the region is very remote but there were true gems closeby. The closest town of Anghiari is a beautiful medieval walled town and good for evening meals (particulary good pizza) in the main piazza. We also spent a lovely evening in Buca Caprese Michaelangelo which served really good local tuscan cuisine with stunning views. The drive to Florence is about 1 and a half hours.
