We stayed for one week at Villa Luogoceleste in the family room, 2 adults and 2 children (16 and 10 years old).
We had seen a lot of pictures of the venue beforehand so expectations were high. As soon as we arrived, we knew our expectations would be easily exceeded. So true.
The place looks like the perfect postcard and Ann en Paul are splendid hosts.
Everything and each detail in and around the Villa breaths quality, combined with the five star service and cookery art of Ann and Paul. What more a (wo)men want?
What comes first to our mind 2 weeks after leaving the Villa:
-the infinity pool with a view (our favorite place). What a view. Tuscan hills and sunflowers! The pool is even more impressive than the pictures. Imagine that!
-delicious breakfast including latte di fiori (I apologize for my Italian) and many more local products at the gazebo ;-) Everyday another fresh-made juice.
-Useful tips and tricks from Ann and Paul for the places you want to visit. We visited Sienna, San Gimignano, Cortona, Pienza and Montepulciano. Some of them with the Vespa.
-Clean rooms, excellent beds, a lot of kids entertainment (PS3, XBox, DVD movies...) and smart space organisation
-If you are into having a chat with Ann and Paul, you get one. If you prefer to be more on your own, they will feel and they disappear to the background.
-The hosts advise and make reservations for restaurants in the neighbourhood.
-With a one day notice, they serve an excellent dinner: primo e secundo piatto e gelato. Not a 'one size fits all solution', but reasonably tailored to the guests' preference (vegetarian lasagna, pistache ice)
-The wine cellar including some (obviously) excellent Vino Nobile and Brunello.
-We enjoyed Ambra, Cliquot and Tresor (I am not referring to the rooms...)
-Did I mention 'the infinity pool with a view'?
We like and higly recommend the place.
Thank you Ann and Paul for the lovely time we had in Tuscany!
