What an amazing property and experience in Tuscany. We rented Villa Il Cerretino in June for 1 week. We were 2 families traveling with young kids (ages 5-9) and a nanny, so 9 of us total. We couldn't begin to fill the house - it's absolutely massive and the pictures don't show half of it. The room accommodations are set up perfectly for a larger group. We had lots of privacy and space to spread out. The pool area is lovely and the grounds are huge with lots of room for the kids to run and play. It's all very self-contained also, which is great for families with smaller children who like to roam. The best part was the service - Benedetta and her team are absolutely top notch. No ask is too much. She took care of everything, from arranging tours and local dinner reservations, to daily breakfast service and a private chef for dinners at the villa. I had planned to do a lot of this planning legwork myself, but Benedetta handled everything and made it so easy for me. I would 100% recommend this place to anyone traveling to Tuscany. It's great for families and larger groups. It's close enough to Florence and the surrounding villages for convenience, but tucked far enough in the hillside to feel removed from the hustle below.

Where to begin? This home is heaven. I visited in late May with a group of 10 friends and we had the most wonderful time. The property and home are appropriately represented in the photos, but what the images can’t capture is the impeccable degree of hospitality offered by Benedetta, the property manager, and her staff. She went beyond offering us local tips and helped us set up transportation, assisted with grocery shopping, and even delivered a birthday cake to the house when I hadn’t even mentioned that we would be celebrating mine during our stay. The weather during our trip was less than ideal, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the Tuscan countryside, visiting the town center (where we ate delicious pizza at Benedetta’s recommendation) and swimming in the pool. Even in the rain, it was blissful to open the shutters in the morning to a stunning view of the Italian countryside and to hear the birds singing. The home has fascinating history and even on our last day here, we were still discovering new rooms and corridors. If you plan to travel around, we definitely recommend a car, though we also could’ve stayed happily within the property walls for months. Our group would recommend this Airbnb for any occasion and we all hope to be back here, sooner rather than later.

We had the great fortune to spend several days at the amazing Il Cerretino in Poggio a Caiano. The villa is spectacular with large tastefully decorated bedrooms and several impressive common spaces filled with contemporary art. Although this place is rich in history (a large part of its charm), it is also very modern and extremely comfortable— perfect for relaxing and leaving behind the cares of the world. The stunning grounds of Il Cerretino are meticulously attended. The view from our bedroom window brought us joy every morning! Although it was too late in the season to use the beautiful pool, there were many other areas that provided peace and quiet in an outdoor setting. Benedetta, the house manager, was a tremendous help to us before and during our stay, providing advice, itineraries, and maps to make our visit in the area as rewarding and stress-free as possible. Her commitment to going above and beyond for guests is a prime example of the personal attention Il Cerretino offers its guests. We could not have asked for a better experience and would love to return!

Response from villamanager2017, Responsabile relazioni con la clientela at Villa Il Cerretino
Responded 2 Nov 2018
Our pleasure MNelz! You have been super sweet guests and we really loved the fact that you could appreciate the stay at the villa even in Fall, when the countryside starts turning in warm orange and yellow colours and breathing outside is all about ripe grape, chestnut and new olive oil scents! Please come back in Summer to enjoy our luxurious pool! Thank you, thank you, thank you for your great review!

Il CERRETINO is a most impressive villa. While the structure and largesse of the property are stunning, the elegant comfort of the “home” is staggering. The total staff and the chefs became like family laughing and loving the villa experience with us. The extensive art collection is of museum quality and a wonderful coexistence with the historic property. The reality of being at the property far exceeds what was expected through the online pictures. The villa is lovingly maintained including the immaculate grounds. We were an extended family of 14 including 3 generations with 6 children ages 15-20. The villa more than adequately accommodated us all. The large bedrooms with air conditioning were appreciated in the very hot August. It’s truly hard to find the adjectives that adequately describe our memorable stay at Villa Il Cerretino.
