The perfect retreat
After a long climb through the winding roads we finally arrived at La Tanelle. Entering in via the poolside we were blown away by the breathtaking views, the rolling tuscan hills seemed endless.
The house itself is stunning, all bedrooms were very spacious and the kitchen was well equipped. We spent most evenings out under the pergola drinking wine and playing cards. We took it easy in the daytime and ventured out to local village hilltop towns. All very beautiful and relaxing.
It is quite remote so you will need to load up on the way with groceries.
Would highly recommend
Beutiful house and location
This is a very charming house, restored with great respect of the history of the house. This means that there are nice bathrooms (not shown in the pictures, btw), a well functioning kitchen and a modern pool, yet the style and atmosphere is like being a couple of centuries back in history.
The house is located in the mountains with a fantastic view. But it is not that easy to get to it (the location is not accurately specified in the rental add -- the GPS coordinates are 43.206814, 10.962262 ). It takes 20-25 minutes to get to the nearest store and and 1 hour and 20 minutes to Siena.
Exquisite in every respect
We invaded La Tanelle with a two week house-party to celebrate my 75th birthday with mixed guest list of family and friends. It could not have been more perfect -- the restoration of the house and its simple elegance, the practicality of the rooms for different pairings, the joy of the country kitchen cooking, thou outdoor grill and pizza over, with many good cooks and inside/outside settings for eclectic, boisterous diners, the panoramic view of landscape and distant hill towns that changes every day and every hour of the day, the pool, the wildlife and walks just outside the door, the markets and villages a simple drive away, and more. It brought out the best in all of us, made us better, deeper conversationalists, funnier, more creative, and more loving of all the good people who came to affirm family and friendship.
Tuscan family reunion
After a long drive from Florence airport we finally settled into the peace and quiet at Le Tanelle. This was an excellent opportunity to spend time with both family and friends for 2 weeks. When not relaxing by the pool with a beer or wine we travelled the surrounding countryside, visiting nearby towns and dining in local restaurants and wineries. We also did a full day tour to Cinque Terra and Pisa (with a separate company) and on other days visited Florence, Lucca, Sienna, Volterra and San Gimignano. Highlights also included a winery tour of Chianti and a cooking school conducted at Le Tanelle. The villa, while rustic, had all necessary comforts except Wi-fi. A problem we had when the pool drained half empty overnight was immediately addressed and we were soon able to swim again. The scenery was spectacular and many great photos were taken. We would highly recommend this villa for its peace, serenity and great views as well as local wildlife
There is now INTERNET at the Villa.
Stunning vistas, well-equipped, very comfortable
Stunning vistas of the hills and hilltop villages, remote from other properties, lots of forest to explore, within easy driving distance of towns and Siena, Florence, Volterra, and San Gimignano. A wonderful outdoor space with well-maintained infinity pool, herb garden, and landscape. A spacious interior space with two separate living rooms, a large, well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds. Everything works! And interesting wildlife: we saw deer, badgers, hares, fireflies, and heard a wild boar and lots of foxes. Suitable for all ages and interests. We had a superb time.
