“Magical villa”
Reviewed 30 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

You couldn’t do better than this! There were 14 of us in a big family group ranging in age from 6 to 16. It was perfect for us all and even the teenagers had nothing to complain about! There is a wonderful sense of space, luxury accomodation but very comfortable and family friendly. The pool is large and was constantly in use and the smell of lavender was sublime. The villa is quite remote which is part of it’s charm but it's within easy reach of many beautiful villages and towns. Our favourite was Anghiari . There are also lots of wild swimming places with spectacular drives.

“A wonderful holiday villa for two families enjoying a relaxed time together in beautiful surroundings.”
Reviewed 22 August 2018 for a stay in August 2018

We all had a wonderful time. The layout of the property was perfect for our party. The house, pool house and pool were so well planned out with form and function coming harmoniously into play. We loved the many seating areas and long tables to enjoy our many home cooked meals. Also, the women who arrived to clean on Saturday morning were so gracious and friendly. The gardener was great too! A wonderful holiday for two families enjoying a relaxed time together in beautiful surroundings.

“Stunning Tuscan property”
Reviewed 13 August 2018 for a stay in July 2018

Our family and two others (6 grownups and 6 children) have stayed in Sterlinghe for one week mid July. It was heaven on earth. The house is absolutely magical: you live in an old Tuscan style house but have all the amenities of a modern home. The impeccable white bed sheets, the scent of lavender in every room, the high ceilings and shutters which even in very hot days kept the house noce and cool. The pool was perfect with the sunbeds. The pool house was our favorite place to sit in the evenings listening to either cicadas or to music on the stereo (its in the house). The grounds are big but you can grasp the size and not feel overwhelmed and the position of the house atop the hill - gave us not only superb views of the valley but also a cool breeze which lowered the July temperatures down a bit. We really enjoyed the pizza evening which was organized by Cecilia. Thank you Vicky - you gave us beautiful memories of our 2018 vacations.

“Absolutely stunning!”
Reviewed 28 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

When we first approached the property, the drive was a bit of a challenge. However once we parked the car and saw the beauty of the property, it made it so worthwhile!! The accomadations were everything we could have hoped for. The beautifully landscaped villa with lavendar and fresh herbs was incredibly beautiful. The pool house with its newly installed pizza oven was a haven from the Umbrian heat. The house itself was comfortable and inviting. All of the guests were happy with their individual accomadations. The kitchen was a pleasure to cook in, complete with convection oven and dishwasher. The quiet in the mornings allowed one to enjoy the bird songs and solitude. It was absolutely the BEST vacation, ever.

“Amazing Location”
Reviewed 26 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Let me start by saying that the pictures do not do Sterlinghe justice. When you walk through the gates the view just stops you because it is so beautiful and quiet up in the hills. We traveled with 9 of us and there was plenty of room for everyone without stumbling over each other. The rooms were spacious and each had its own bath. The best part which isn’t in the pictures on here is the new pool area. The ping pong table has been moved to the porch of the villetta and the pool house now is four walls with glass doors on 2.5 sides. The pool house has a kitchen area, couches and a table along with a stereo system with speakers outside too. The outside of the pool house has a very large stone patio that is stunning. It has 4 different sitting areas and a covered area with a BBQ and new pizza oven and a large stone table. We spent most of our time in the pool and pool house area. It was a wonderful surprise. The owners were very helpful and the packet they provided was very helpful, especially the directions since you have to use coordinates to find it on Google Maps. The owners also provided information on different activities such as catered meals, truffle hunting, bike tours, pizza chef, wine tasting, salami tasting, babysitting and a couple other activities. These are arranged by Cecelia who was wonderful to work with. We did the catered meal, the pizza chef and wine/salami tasting. I would recommend booking activities with Cecelia because is a wealth of knowledge about the area.

Liked best: The pool and pool house!
Liked least: The drive up was a little scary the first time as it up and over a large hill but it also adds to the charm of the house.
