Great place - only minor flaws
Super house and fantastic pool. Location of bathrooms/bathrooms not optimal, though Two of the 4 bedrooms were interconnecting and shared a common bathroom below via a very rough set narrow staircase. The two other bedrooms shared a bathroom on the floor. We were expecting more privacy on that count.
Grounds fantastic, badminton, table tennis, pool👍� shepherds coming in the late afternoon was great. Internet so-so.....
All clean and all amenities available..
The nearby towns are not very lively, but if you want to drive 30min it it possible to find some picturesqe small villages. Not a big issue.
Great and accommodating hostess couple, but mind you that they are living in the house. Not a problem for us, though, as theyy are not intereferingin any way, but keeps the pool clean every morning..
Rustic farmhouse in an absolutely stunning setting
Lovely, rustic farmhouse in a secluded location with absolutely stunning views. The pool was immaculate and kept the kids entertained all week while the view did likewise for the adults. We spent the majority of the day either around the pool or sitting on the covered veranda area which was very pleasant. The kitchen is very well equipped and could easily cater for a legion or two.
Very easy and straight forward booking process and Martyn was always quick to reply to questions and in response to requests for advice. Once at the property he was equally helpful and played the perfect host in being always at hand to help but never intruding.
Despite being close to a couple of modest sized towns this farmhouse does have an 'entertaining' road up to it that makes this not the kind of place if you fancy nipping out to the shops every morning and twice whilst cooking dinner - however this is a perfect place to go to get away from it all and relax in a lovely setting. The view of the hills and valleys is simply stunning and will literally stop you every time you see it. We considered heading into Florence which is very accessible thanks to the local train station but were only put off by the heat at that time of the year and having young children in tow.
Would go back again without a doubt.
A fantastic stay at a marvelous location
The road to the house was a bit rough the first time; but the house and the view was worth it all. Our hosts did an excellent job and offers a house that is nicely kept, clean and offers all the room and space you could need.
They were always available if needed and helpful beyond what could be expected. Only the best recommendations from us.
The house is extraordinary place on the hill side and offers an amazing view from most of the garden and pool area.
Beautiful villa in Tuscan mountains
Martyn and Margaret were wonderful hosts, and we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay at L'olmo.
We had booked L'olmo for a special birthday celebration and Martyn and Margaret had kindly offered to prepare a meal on arrival, which was delicious. They also arranged a birthday cake and throughout our stay, helped with restaurant bookings. They provided lots of useful advice and suggestions for day trips and eating places in the local area.
The road up to the villa is a steep 10 minute climb, but the views are breathtaking and well worth it. When we arrived, our kids immediately jumped into the pool, and played with the inflatables that Martyn and Margaret had thoughtfully provided. The pool was fantastic, surrounded by lavender bushes, which attract lots of butterflies - a wonderful sight. The grounds are vast, with lots of play areas, a badminton net, table tennis and cricket set. After which there is a hammock to relax in (or swing) when the kids wished. The kids also loved seeing the sheep being herded by the sheepdogs and the very kind shepherd.
The villa itself is superb, and well cared for. It had everything we needed, with lots of thoughtful touches including fresh herbs, home made olive oil and a well stocked larder, which we replenished as we used. As we stayed for two weeks, the villa was cleaned, and beds changed on the middle Saturday. Something we have often had to request and sometimes paid extra for, on previous holiday rentals.
To get the most from your stay, we would recommend speaking to Martyn and Margaret in advance, although we also found they were easy to talk to throughout the stay. The location is a good base to explore Tuscany, such as Florence, Siena, San Gimigano and others you may not be familiar with.
A perfect place for a vacation
The house is perfect, spacious and well equipped with everything you need for cooking, relaxing etc. The swimming-pool area is great with lots of sunbeds and, of course, a large pool, well suited for both young and old. It is a long and bumpy road up to the house, but the fantastic scenery makes the drive more than worthwhile. Adding that the owners, Margaret and Martyn, are wonderful hosts you cannot ask more for a time of pure pleasure.

Wonderful Tuscan family retreat
The L'Olmo farmhouse was a wonderful setting for a superbly relaxing holiday with plenty of very comfortable accommodation for three generations of our family. The pool is perfect and the view outstanding. Kids and adults alike were thrilled to see a deer run across the bottom of the garden and we all enjoyed the daily sheep crossing. The great hosts organised for their friend Marie to cook us some wonderful Italian meals and booked us into a great local restaurant where we had a very reasonably priced delicious meal. Thanks for everything!
