Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

This villa was so beautiful and the views were breathtaking. We were a group of two families with 9 people total - the villa was huge and could easily accommodate more people. The pool was incredible and perfect for the kids to unwind in after a day of touring the area. Titti was wonderful to work with and very accommodating. The only comment on location I would make is that the location is tricky to get to - very narrow and winding roads with a steep incline in one spot. We had a long van which complicated matters, so definitely recommend smaller cars to make the trip up the mountain, if possible. The only comment on the home is that internet access was intermittent. Overall, this is an amazing villa!

We had a great time in the villa. Titti could not have been more helpful as we had a difficult journey. Everything was clean and beautiful. The bed linen was lovely and there were plenty of towels provided. The views from the terrace were spectacular and we sat out every night for dinner. Marco came every day to clean the pool and was most helpful and kind. Our only problem was the extremely steep ascent up to the villa. The small cars we had hired were not powerful enough to climb the steep hills and hairpin bends. We did find a different route, however this involved driving through an extremely narrow tunnel. Amazing as it was, I am not sure we would have chosen the villa had we known about the difficult access. Having said that, now we know what to expect, we would return.

This Villa was AMAZING. Our Grandkids loved everything about it.(Especially the pool). Titti our host was great, the location and views were AMAZING. When you first decide you want to rent a Villa in Tuscany, this is what your mind thinks about....and then when you get there your dream comes true. I'm 100% certain we will be back and our Children will be as well. I'm telling all my friends and family that when they want a place in Tuscany....THIS IS IT! Bob Russo & Family

Our stay in Pistoia was all we hoped it would be! When we arrived late in the evening, Titti met us at a nearby restaurant so she could escort us to the house, a beautiful Tuscan villa nestled in the hills with spectacular views of the city as well as the surrounding hills. She was very helpful, giving us suggestions for restaurants and grocery stores in the area as well bringing us some basics (coffee!) for our first morning. Marco met us a few times, taking us on a tour of the house and surrounding structures and telling us it's history, and bringing us fresh cherries from the trees, inviting us to pick more if we wanted. There were other fruit trees as well as the olive groves. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and we slept with windows wide open. We spent many evenings on the patio enjoying antipasti and wine we picked up on our day trips to the wine countries. We were able to take day trips to Florence, Lucca, Pisa, Sienna, and other smaller hamlets, and other days just enjoyed the villa and pool. As another reviewer pointed out, the villa is a 20 minute drive down to Pistoia, so there's no "running to the store" to pick up something forgotten, but planning ahead will prevent any need for that, and the trade off of being away from the noise of city life is worth it. There are a few restaurants on the roads up to the villa, as well as tiny "towns" which unfortunately we weren't able to explore, but Pistoia has some wonderful restaurants as well as many historic sites. Don't miss the underground tour which starts near the piazza at the old hospital. At the end of our stay, Titti came to visit and brought us a platter of delicious Italian pastries! We highly recommend this villa, especially for large families or groups. It was the perfect place for us to unwind and take advantage of the beautiful Tuscan countryside and close enough to the fascinating historic cities, and the Italian hospitality was everywhere. Thank you Marco and Titti!

The villa was everything we had hoped for and more. The pool was a huge success and it proved difficult to extract the children to see another batipstry or duomo! The whole family had an absolutely fabolous time and i would just like to take this opportunity to thank you. It really was a lovely gesture, love. The Leavys

When you think of a villa in Tuscany this is what your mind dreams of. Nestled in the hills above Pistoia the villa offers spectacular views. Titti and Marco are wonderful and very helpful, taking care of any small repairs and offering suggestions on where to eat, ristorante la Cugna was our group of elven people favourite place. Titti arranged two local women, Daneilla and Leanna, to come into the villa and cook a fantastic meal for our group the one evening and our group had so much fun with them it is a meal that will not soon be forgotten. The villa is central to Pisa, Pistoia, Lucca and Florence and after a busy day of touring to be able to return to the villa and relax poolside was great. Very clean and comfortable accommodations throughout the villa, you will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here. p.s. to Titti & Marco, hope your father is feeling better. Larry & Friends

Many thanks for the cure & the villa. We really enjoyed the local knowledge you shared with us, recipes for real italian tomato sauce and, of course, wine recommendations! A special word & thanks to your father for opening up the wine cellar. The pool was a huge successand it proved difficult to extract the children to see another baptistry or duomo! We had a wonderful holiday in Tuscany. Thanks again for helping to make it so enjoyable!

Our group of eight had a fabulous time at Villa Mario in September, 2016. This spacious country house on the hillside above Pistoia, with its fantastic views, provided a wonderful base for our ten-day visit to Tuscany (the pictures on website do not even convey the overall feeling of the villa!) . Accessible by both car and train, we enjoyed our time there, whether relaxing at the villa (with its wonderful pool!) or heading to beautiful sites and historical towns and cities throughout the province of Tuscany. Titti, the proprietor, was exceptional from the very beginning. She answered questions and provided input even before our arrival, but once there, she helped make our stay even more enjoyable. She was easily reachable for any issue that may have surfaced; she arranged for a private tour for us in Pistoia; and she put us in contact with a local cook who we hired to prepare two delicious meals for us to enjoy while at the villa. All in all, a very memorable stay at a wonderful country house!

Good morning Titti, it's a pleasure write a comment on our week at Villa Mario, we really enjoyed your heaven in the country, we had a very good sunshine all week. Your pool is glorious, in a fantastic spot with great views and the children have been out of it all week! We thank you very much for your sparkling hospitality, for the olive oil and for the use of your beautiful home. We hope very much to return again in the future and take Mario up on his offer to farm the olive grove next time. With very best wishes, Brenda and the family

My family and I had the pleasure of renting this fabulous villa in Pistoia for two weeks in June, 2013. We used the villa as our home base to travel to many villages, towns, and cities within a one hundred mile radius. It was close to the highway, train station, the town of Pistoia and Florence. The accommodations were perfect for my husband and I, our son, daughter and her family (which included a one year old child). This lovely villa was situated on a high mountaintop which overlooked the lovely town of Pistoia. Sunrises and sunsets were amazing! Views were breathtaking and picturesque! The huge, gorgeous pool was immaculate and was also situated overlooking the town. It was used daily and on many warm evenings, as well. The villa was very clean and well maintained. Titti, the property manager was extremely helpful in answering all questions, recommending restaurants, places to visit (off the beaten path) and was always available to address any concerns. If you are looking for the perfect vacation in Tuscany, you will find a "home away from home" here.
