The grandness whilst still remaining relaxed and stylish with its modern twist allowing for remarkable weekend or week long wedding stays.
There are few words to describe HOW AMAZING our experience was at Il Cerretino. We hosted family and a couple friends (13 total) for a five-night stay + our wedding in early May. The weather was colder than usual, and it rained on our wedding day —and we can still look back and say it was AMAZING! Benedetta, our host, went above and beyond. Seriously. We have traveled extensively, and it’s rare to find hosts (and people in general) who are as hospitable and accommodating as Ms. Benedetta. The entire week was planned without ever seeing the villa — so we heavily relied on Benedetta’s guidance, suggestions and accommodations. Including a last minute change of plans to host our ~50 person wedding inside. The villa has so many different rooms, beautiful art, lots of seating, and plenty of open space downstairs. We couldn’t have planned it better. Not to mention, Benedetta was so helpful in arranging all the small details that weren’t a part of her job description as a VRBO host. She truly goes out of her way to make you feel at home. As for the villa and our stay, all the guests had plenty of space in the bedrooms. The extra bed was very useful too. Would strongly recommend for couples — as there are mostly queen sized beds in each room. All the bedrooms have their own bathroom, with one exception. The courtyards (!) are stunning. You can see Florence on a clear day. We loved how secluded the villa was. There’s a grocery store within a 5 min drive, which we used several times. Plenty of cups, plates, silverware, etc. And we loved the communal spaces.
The villa is kept in MINT condition – inside and out. For as old as it is, they do an excellent job keeping up with the grounds, and interior to make it feel as though it’s new. If you look in the books & magazine room, you’ll find a 1978 Vogue Home Edition magazine. The villa has a 3-4 page spread written in Italian. The photos from 1978 might as well have been from last week – furniture and all. It’s incredible how well they’ve kept up with the place. If anything did come up, they are on top of it right away.
Book this villa. Get to know Benedetta and the whole staff. Enjoy your stay in Italy!
I visited in late May with a group of 10 friends and we had the most wonderful time. The property and home are appropriately represented in the photos, but what the images can’t capture is the impeccable degree of hospitality offered by Benedetta, the property manager, and her staff. She went beyond offering us local tips and helped us set up transportation, assisted with grocery shopping, and even delivered a birthday cake to the house when I hadn’t even mentioned that we would be celebrating mine during our stay. The weather during our trip was less than ideal, but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the Tuscan countryside, visiting the town center (where we ate delicious pizza at Benedetta’s recommendation) and swimming in the pool. Even in the rain, it was blissful to open the shutters in the morning to a stunning view of the Italian countryside and to hear the birds singing. The home has fascinating history and even on our last day here, we were still discovering new rooms and corridors. If you plan to travel around, we definitely recommend a car, though we also could’ve stayed happily within the property walls for months. Our group would recommend this Airbnb for any occasion and we all hope to be back here, sooner rather than later.
While the structure and largesse of the property are stunning, the elegant comfort of the “home” is staggering. The total staff and the chefs became like family laughing and loving the villa experience with us. The extensive art collection is of museum quality and a wonderful coexistence with the historic property. The reality of being at the property far exceeds what was expected through the online pictures. The villa is lovingly maintained including the immaculate grounds.
We were an extended family of 14 including 3 generations with 6 children ages 15-20. The villa more than adequately accommodated us all.
The large bedrooms with air conditioning were appreciated in the very hot August. It’s truly hard to find the adjectives that adequately describe our memorable stay at Villa Il Cerretino.
