Vecchio Fienile Casa Vacanze
Reviewed 19 May 2015

In May 2015 we stayed at Vecchio Fienile with our family for one week. As the house has five separate appartments, it was ideal for our group since we were with five families and had the location on our own.

First of all we were welcomed very friendly by Maurizio and his family. They had done everything tot prepare everything in the best way. The house, garden and views are even better than all the pictures show and also the appartments are spacious.

During the week the hospitality was perfect with our wedding with the dinner on the terras of our appartment as a highlight. With the cook that they arranged, they showed to be able to prepare a beautiful decorated setting for the dinner with antipasti at the pool and a 3-course menu at the table.

It is very easy to reach cities as San Gimignano and Siena as it is only a few minutes to the highway, but far enough away to be quiet.

We can only recommend Vecchio Fienile to people interested.

This was our second year at Vecchio Fienile, and we've booked for two weeks next year. The Villa is set in a quiet Tuscan hillside but still near a well equipped local town. We have two big dogs which have always been welcomed, and they even helped us with the local vet this year as we don't speak Italian. This for us was way beyond what an owner would do in our country. They have also been very helpful with hints on places for us to visit as a family. This is an ideal spot to visit the Tuscan area with Florence and Sienna only being 30mins away from the villa. The villa we have stayed in was Fieno and had everything we needed, very clean and well laid out for a holiday rental.

We enjoyed a two week holiday in July with friends (8 of us in total) at Vecchio Fienile staying in La Balla and Fieno. Both were well supplied and comfortable. The overall atmosphere was very friendly and relaxing. Maurizio, the owner, was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, arranging activities and pointing us in the direction of a great baker and a local cheesemaker! The pool was fantastic (the best I've come across in 20 years of staying in Tuscany) and the site provided incredible views across the countryside including to San Gimignano. Only (minor) gripe - there was a good barbecue but no pizza oven for the more intrepid cooks! Thanks Maurizio for helping make what was a a lovely holiday. Bill & Mike

My family and I have been going to this villa for around 10 years now and it never fails to disappoint. The owners couldn't be more welcoming and hospitable giving great recommendations for restaurants and places to visit in the area. It is located in the middle of the beautiful Tuscan landscape with lots of wonderful historic towns and cities to visit just a short drive away. This is by far my favourite place to visit, already looking forward to our return! A car is a must to make the most of what the area has to offer. This holiday suits those who need a relaxing peaceful vacation with plenty of fine food and wine with trips to local areas steeped in history and outstanding architecture.

The management are most accommodating & will organise anything for you, the location is idyllic and in close proximity to many interesting towns and cities. Whether you want to visit many locations nearby, chill by the pool or both, this is the place to go. Many restaurants nearby if you do not want to make use of the excellent barbecue and herb garden. Look on the website at the photographs, if anything they do not do this location justice. K Cumberland.

Room Tip: I have stayed now in every room over a 11 year period, each one is home from home.
