Villa Alessandra is a semi-detached villa about 1km from the town Cavriglia. This lovely Tuscan villa has been built with all the typical Tuscan characteristics and it is perfect for families with children.
The large, extremely well maintained garden has a private tennis court and large pool with excellent views. The garden is dotted with trees providing plenty of shade for the warmer days. It has views up the valley towards Florence on one side while the other side looks out towards Arezzo, with the mountains in the background.
Villa Alessandra is split level. The front of the villa has a pretty little furnished terrace which has fantastic views across the fields and towards Florence. The entrance is through a small courtyard.
On entering the living area is open with arches between the various parts. On one side is a small dining area with a wooden table and chairs for 4 people. Passing under an arch there is the lounge area which is furnished with a leather sofa, a couple of armchairs and several tables. This part of the room has a large fireplace with a glass front, ideal for cooler Tuscan evenings. From this side of the house there are three double wood and glass doors providing plenty of light and access to the garden.

Through another arch there is a larger dining area which has direct access to the kitchen. This area is furnished with a big table that has the typical Tuscan benches. Double doors lead from here to the front garden.
Through a door off the main dining room there is the spacious kitchen. It is well equipped with a large oven, gas hobs, fridge with freezer. In the centre of the room is a wooden table with 4 chairs. To one side, down some steps there is a storeroom with laundry facilities and an extra fridge/freezer. Double doors from the kitchen provide access to the furnished terrace with stone barbeque.
The bedrooms are all on the first floor. At the top of the stairs there is a small landing, off which there is a corridor to the right. From here there is access to two of the bedrooms. The first is a double bedroom which cannot be made into a twin. This room is furnished with a dresser and wardrobe, double doors open onto a Juliette balcony which looks out to the front of the villa. On one side of the bedroom is a small room with bunk beds, only suitable for  young children. This leads into the en-suite bathroom with shower.

At the end of the corridor there is a double bedroom which has access to the upper garden and pool area. The room is furnished with a wardrobe and dresser. This room can be made into a twin on request when booking.
Directly off the landing there is a triple bedroom with a double bed and a single bed. In the spacious room is a chest of drawers with mirror, large wardrobe and a sturdy cot. The windows look out to the back gardens of the villa. Next to this rooms is a bathroom with large hydromassage bath and handheld shower.

The fourth bedroom is also accessed from the landing. This is also a spacious triple bedroom with a traditional Tuscan wooden double bed and a simple single bed. There is a wardrobe and chest of drawers. A small en-suite bathroom with shower completes this bedroom.


The neighbouring villa is also rented to holidaymakers. Although Villa Alessandra is semi-detached there is privacy provided by a high hedge between the two properties.


The owners take great care of the villa and will be present to maintain the gardens, pool and answer any questions, although they only speak Italian.

Electric fans are available on request.

Private villa in an elevated position with huge grounds, a great pool and stunning views. Met on arrival by a very friendly Italian man with very little english but he gave us a tour whilst we waited for another family member for check-in.

Villa is far more impressive than the website pictures and is well kitted out with the advantage it has a pizza oven and a vegetable garden where you can pick salad for lunch! Smooth check-in & out process. Cavriglia itself is smaller than we expected and whilst there are shops there we drove to montevachi to coop fi for food and drinks.

Take insect spray the bugs love bare flesh covered in sun cream!

Overall a fabulous place which is everythign you would expect in Tuscany.
Local attractions San Gimignano is well worth a visit, a picturesque down with shops and restaurants and a market. Parking was a nightmare so go early or abandon on the side roads near car park 1

Zeer ruim en zeer goede ligging. Met name de buitenruimte is fantastisch met jonge kinderen. Het huis heeft ook een geweldige moestuin, waar we de hele week met heel veel plezier en smaak uit gegeten hebben. De eigenaren waren ontzettend vriendelijk en behulpzaam.
De inrichting is wat ouderwets, maar daarom misschien ook wel kidsproof.

Location was central to many of the cities we went to. We loved the pool. The pool and land were kept up nicely and our hosts were pleasant. Dick recommended Lorenzo Migliorini from Gastronomia Biagioni (https://www.facebook.com/GastronomiaBiagioni) for a cooking class. All of us (4 adults, 3 children) LOVED him. He is not only a great teacher, but also a great person. He was very resourceful when it came to places to visit (high quality leather and clothing), food to eat (the biscottis rocked), and alcohol to try (we are big into organic wines). He was key in making our stay awesome. The owners invited us to take from their garden. It was very nice of them!
What I would improve is having the keyholder/check in person walk you through the house. We weren't aware that the screens were retractable, and spent most of the days with our windows closed because we didn't want the mosquitos coming in...and it was VERY hot when we stayed. We only discovered the screens halfway through our stay. It wasn't until a week later did our hostess tell us about the fans, too. They were kept in a locked downstairs room. As for being isolated, it was not the case. The house is actually two dwellings, and we stayed on one side, and the owner stayed with his family on the other side. We could hear them clearly. However, the hedge blocked most of our views. Oh, and, the washing machine was leaking and walked when used.

We were sorry to hear it took a while to discover how the nets worked. The fans are available on request. We will make this clearer in the description. The owner has now fixed the washing machine.

We enjoyed the large pool, playing tennis, the spaciousness, the views, the easy access to Florence by rail from Montevarchi.
The owners were very pleasant, helpful and contrary to warnings Federicca speaks good English
Cavriglia and Montevarchi lack Tuscan character
Local attractions Favourite restaurant was PAPASOLINO in Cavriglia. Great food generous portions and wine. Rada in Chianti and Valpaia worth a visit, try UCCI for food in the latter.

The villa was very well equipped. The outdoor areas were excellent and lovely. The linens were fresh and plentiful. We were greeted by the key holder, who, although he did not speak English, had arranged to have someone (his son?) who did arrive very shortly after our arrival, which made the check-in and check-out process much easier. All the facilities (keys. locks, heat, etc.) were well-explained. It was very nice of them to leave us a bottle of their wine and their olive oil.
One of the showers did not have any shower curtains, which made a wet mess every time it was used..
Local attractions Our first evening, we went into Cavriglia and ate at Papposileno, which was excellent. We did not really explore the town of Cavriglia until near the end of our stay, but we would recommend walking around Cavriglia on the first week-day of your rental to learn the available facilities. There is a Coop, a gourmet deli, a very good pizza place (carry-out), a gelato shop, in addition to Pappoliseno, which is right in town.
