Villa Solata sits on the border of Chianti and Valdarno, both regions are famed for their beautiful countryside and great wines. It is an ideal base for exploring the region with Arezzo and Cortona 40 minutes away and even Florence and Siena can easily be reached within 60 to 90 minutes.

The large swimming pool is located at the rear of the property and is reached via stone steps at the side of the house. The relaxing pool area has loungers, chairs and a covered area providing some shade. From here there are great views over the Tuscan countryside and the extensive private grounds.

Formerly home to a Bishop and Solata's 'casa podronale' the villa has been fully restored, retaining many of the original features. Surrounded by acres of private garden including an orchard and an olive grove – this really is a very special place to stay.



Entrance to the villa is through a grand doorway into the hall which has patterned tiled flooring and a marble staircase on the right hand side. To the left is the downstairs bathroom with full sized bath and handheld shower.



Straight ahead and to the left doors lead into the spacious L shaped lounge/diner. This is a bright room with beautiful tiled floors, sofas, digital TV and two sets of double doors leading on to the large terrace.




The terrace has dining table and chairs and great views of the garden and countryside.


The dining room is located at the other end of the room and is adjacent to the kitchen. Here another set of double doors lead out onto the smaller terrace at the rear of the property. This is also furnished with table and chairs.




The large fully furnished kitchen has a built in oven, separate gas hobs, double sink, dishwasher and a fridge/freezer. There is also a large walk in larder.


The marble staircase leads up to the first floor landing, which has tiled flooring. At the top of the stairs double doors open onto a ‘juliet’ balcony above the front entrance. The bedroom at the front right hand side of the villa has wooden floors and an antique brass double bed.

The second bathroom with shower, is situated between the two bedrooms on the right of the property. The bedroom at the rear of the villa on the right has wooden floors, an ironwork double bed, painted wardrobe and its own 'juliet' balcony.



In between the two rear bedrooms is a further lounge space, in which to relax, with chairs and a huge open fireplace and a bookcase with a selection of books.



The fourth bedroom at the front left hand side of the property has a wooden double sleigh bed with matching wardrobe. All bedrooms have two windows each, and all have views of the countryside, gardens or both.



Great location for exploring the Tuscany region.
Local towns with markets nearby.

Salt water swimming pool.

Internet WI-FI available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.

Pros I've given a score excellent for location because we wanted something remote with far reaching views and Solata fitted that bill perfectly but the remoteness might not be to everyone's taste.
The villa included everything you could need.
Cons The track to the village is a bit daunting first time and care must be taken. We had a people carrier and had no problems on the climb or hairpin bends The internet was a bit intermittent. The satellite tv did not work (apparently it had been a problem the week before) The pool was freezing, needs heating somehow.

Pros Le cadre, le confort, le calme.
Cons Des conditions d'accès difficiles : Un chemin qui peut abîmer une voiture qui n'est pas un 4X4
Local attractions Nous avons visité Arezzo, Cortona, Sienne, Florence, Castellina in Chianti, Pise, Lucca et déjeuné dans ces villes. Il faut réserver les billets à l'avance pour visiter certains monuments à Florence. On peut laisser la voiture à l'entrée de la ville et utiliser ensuite le tram. A Lucca , on peut dormir dans un hôtel à proximité des remparts, Le Napoléon par exemple. La ville se visite à pieds ou en vélo. Les lieux que nous avons préférés : Sienne, Lucca, Cortona (charme particulier et moins envahis par les touristes que Pise ou Florence).

Accès internet impeccable

Pros Een heerlijk huis in een mooie - ietwat afgelegen - omgeving. Goede voorzieningen en alles was er. Geen vakantiehuis, maar gewoon een echt huis.
Cons Qua locatie was het prettig geweest om iets dichter bij een dorpje te zitten, zodat je 's ochtends bijv. snel even een boodschap zou kunnen doen of een kop koffie zou kunnen drinken.
Local attractions Siena is erg dichtbij; de creten onder Siena zijn daardoor ook goed bereikbaar.

Stay: August 2012
Pros Great villa. Very high stadards of finish and spec. Loads of games/ DVD's etc for kids . Lovely pool and grounds. Views and setting were very beautiful
Cons The location was extremely remote on the top of a mountain in a village with literally a handful of houses and no facilites etc. This would not usually be a problem, and we have stayed in remote Villas previously. However I think the access road to the villa can be described as extreme. Much of it is a gravel track up an extremely steep mountain track with multiple hair pin bends. I was in a Land rover and still found it very tough. I would not want to do this track in the dark in a non 4 wheel drive car. Whilst the details did explain the road was not tar macked I do not believe the details are explicit enough and like us I think families will be shcked by the conditions. I felt certain we must have be going the wrong way on our arrival and the location discourgaed us from travelling away from the Villa too many times.
Local attractions There is nothing very close by.

Pros Wunderschöne, saubere mit Liebe eingerichtete Villa mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht und noch viel mehr.
Die Bilder und Beschreibungen sind exakt so wie beworben.
Die Lage und Aussicht ist wie man sich ein Urlaub in der Toskana vorstellt. Die Anfahrt über eine unbefestigte Serpentinen-Straße ist sehr Abenteuerlich, aber gut machbar. (Tiefergelegte Autos werden aber kleine Schwierigkeiten haben)
Die Hausverwalter Lorena und Giuliano (wohnen schräg hinter der Villa) samt ihren lieben Haustieren geben sich sehr viel Mühe, daß die Gäste rundum zufrieden sind und sich wohl fühlen. Pool wurde auch während unserem Aufenthalt gereinigt.
Wir waren begeistert und kommen gerne wieder!!!
Cons Ab ca. vier Uhr (kommt auf die Jahreszeit drauf an, wir waren Mitte August) ist leider am Pool keine Sonne mehr... aber es ist ja trotzdem noch schön war. Stechmücken und Bremsen finden den Pool und die Villa leider auch ganz toll ;)

Pros Der Ausblick ist einfach unglaublich. Dazu der Pool - ein wahrer Genuss. Lorena hat uns sogar noch eine Eismaschine vorbei gebracht. 100 Punkte, wir kommen wieder.
Cons Der Aufstieg ist in der Tat unpraktisch - den Porsche sollte man zuhause lassen. Ansonsten geht es mit jedem normalen Auto gut.
Local attractions Florenz, Siena.

Review date:
Stay: May 2010
Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Das Haus hoch oben auf dem Berg, der Ausblick -vor allen Dingen morgens, wenn der Nebel aus den Tälern hochzog-, die absolute Erholung, die Ausflüge nach Florenz, ...
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Liebevolle Einrichtung, man merkte sofort, dass in dem Haus "gelebt" wird. Wir haben uns sofort wohlgefühlt.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Na ja, wenn man es als unangenehm bezeichnen will, dass man mit dem Wagen nicht auf das Grundstück fahren konnte, weil er dann aufsetzte. Nein, unangenehme Überraschungen hat es nicht gegeben.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Ich würde jederzeit wieder über To Tuscany ein Haus buchen, beim nächsten Mal würde ich nur darauf achten, dass man den nächstgelegenen Ort auch zu Fuß erreichen kann.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Der Blick vom Domizil aus, der Gesamteindruck der Unterbringung, das Anwesen an sich.
Sicherlich die Weinverkostungen im Chianti Gebiet und die Ausflüge nach Siena und in die Abbazione del Monastery (?).
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Toller Ausblick, tolle Villa, gut ausgestattet, die Verwalter haben die Reinigung des Pools zweimal getätigt - von daher sehr zufrieden.
Es sollte jedoch, wie in einigen Kundenbewertungen beschrieben, deutlicher auf die serpentinenreiche, steile Anfahrt hingewiesen werden, die
bei vollbepackten Auto auf der Hinfahrt zuerst ein Schock, später dann aber kein Problem mehr darstellte.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Zuerst die steile Anfahrt, später aber leicht zu händeln.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Vielen Dank, wir werden sicherlich wieder in die Toskana fahren und dann wieder ein Angebot der Internetseite heraussuchen.
