We stayed at L'Antica Cisterna for a week. Our group was made up of four adults and three small children. The house was spotless and large enough to accommodate all of us with room to spare. The bedrooms and common areas were both very spacious, comfortable and charming. The decor is rustic, cosy and tasteful--just what you would hope for... More

My family and I stayed in Charlie & Anne's incredible villa for three weeks. We had a wonderful time. The villa is lovely and has all the amenities and facilities you could need. We hosted small gatherings every night; there's plenty of space for meals and parties. The location is beautiful - quiet and remote but not too far away... More

L'Antica Cisterna is a fabulous place to spend a week in Tuscany. Charly and Ann couldn't be better hosts providing all sorts of useful information. Be sure to ask about their olive oil! Three couples plus one spent the first week in October in this farmhouse and had wonderful day trips to the region, including a visit to a "farm"... More

L'Antica Cisterna is an amazing villa for a Tuscany vacation. Our family of 7 had a wonderful week - the view is magnificent, the villa is spacious, clean, comfortable, and has everything you need. The owners are very helpful and the location is perfect. We highly recommend this villa.

I'd definitely recommend this place - we had a super time and felt so at home. It's a bit remote but with a car and directions you're good to go!

To celebrate my 60th birthday I chose L'Antica Cisterna because of its stunning location and because it was easy for my friends to travel via Pisa and Florence from their various worldwide locations. When we arrived there was an audible gasp.............it is one of the few places I've travelled to that really has that WOW factor. The views are simply... More
