Lo Scoittolo (also known as La Vigna) was everything we hoped for. It is so beautiful. Alessandro is a wonderful host. We were four couples who had more space than we needed. The villa is ideally located for many great day trips. Absolutely clean, comfortable, well-equipped, and aesthetically pleasing.
We opted for Alessandro's mother to cook a dinner for us one night. It was held in the taverna in the basement of the villa, with a roaring fire. It was a little pricey at 50 euro per person, but that included unlimited wine and 3 courses. We thoroughly enjoyed it and discovered that Alessandro is not only a wine maker but a metal artisan.
Just a few things that potential renters might want to know: if you need heat, it will be 40 euro per day. Apparently, it's not possible to calculate the actual usage exactly, so this is what Alessandro charges. It can be a little unclear about what the charges might be. But we felt Alessandro was being fair and that given the very reasonable price of the villa in low season, it was okay.
The wifi was spotty. We had none the first two days, which we understood was a problem with the local network. But even when it was working it appeared that there was a limitation to the number of devices that could be on a once. (Some of us got connected and others could not)
Overall, this place was wonderful and I would rent it again.
Villa Lo Scoiattolo was perfect! The home and property was everything promised and accommodations were great for our family and friends. Alessandro (owner) was helpful and welcoming. He worked on property site daily and so he was always accessible to us. I would recommend this property for the quality of the home and location. It should be noted that Subbiano is not a tourist area and therefore most businesses do not speak English. However the people are very friendly and helpful. Great property!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Perfect for our Yoga/Pilates retreat and day trips to Siena, Florence and Arezzo! Highly recommend, the owners have had this vineyard in their family for 4 generations and take great care and pride of their family estate. The perfect getaway I would go again! Thank you Rosie and Alessandro for taking care of our every need!
Très bon accueil par Alessandro. Aucune surprise quant à la location, conforme à ce que nous avions réservé. Et nous avons même goûter au vin de la propriété, offert par le propriétaire.
Ganz tolles Haus. Wir haben gegrillt und Pizza gemacht und eigentlich nur draussen gelebt. Wir kommen bestimmt mal im Winter um den Kamin zu erleben! Sehr gut war auch die Zugverbindung von Arezzo aus. So kann man ohne Parkprobleme nach Florenz und Siena fahren. Auch der Trasimeno See ist einen Ausflug wert, denn dort gibt es Wassersportmòglichleiten.
Davon haben wir geträumt: viel Platz in einem alten Landhaus mit grossen Räumen und hohen Decken und alten Kaminen und Weinkeller und einen Garten mit Schwimmbad mit Blick auf die Weinstöcke und einem Pizzaofen! Es war alles perfekt. Auf jeden Fall zum weiterempfehlen!
Luxus pur in schönster Umgebung. Wir haben uns in der grossen Villa sehr wohl gefühlt. Die Räume sind wahnsinnig schön und gut eingerichtet. Der Garten ist toll und alles war noch erstaunlich Grund! Wir hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub! Vielen Dank Posarelli Villas.
Really enjoyed our stay, certainly recommend it !!
