"Would you recommend your villa?: YES
Service while on trip: Very good
Villa location: Beautiful but too remote from everything. Nearest decent supermarket was 35-40 min away.
Staff in the villa: Super helpful and pleasant
Cleanliness: Very good. Only thing was that the indoor warm salt water pool was not cleaned nor check for bacteria during the week we were there. To our past experience such a pool needs to be check daily for bacteria level.
Home in Italy assistance: Very good
How would you rate this property?: On a scale from 1-10, I would rate the villa 7 because of location and the situation with insects (please see below in comments)
How would you rate Home in Italy services?: On a scale from 1-10, I would rate your service 10.
Comments: Villa Armonia was beautiful and we liked the Nordic, modern style inside with a personal touch. Our biggest problem was the number of insects – both inside and close to the house. We found 3 different wasps nest “on the house” of which one was in the corner of the veranda (main eating area). We recommended to Maria Pia that they were more careful in the cleaning procedures, keeping doors and windows closed and checking. When you travel with children this becomes a problem and for that reason we will probably not go back to the same villa at least for some years."

"We were 12 in search of a home base for a week spent on Tuscan backroads, but what we found was a home--a beautifully appointed, beautifully renovated, incredibly comfortable home. Mornings with coffee at the grand table in the middle of the garden, overlooking one of the staggering panoramas I've ever seen...afternoons in the pool or walking with the cows and goats and sheep that roam past the front gate...evenings with a personal chef (hired from her own Michelin-starred restaurant down the road) using the vegetables growing all about you for your dinner...it was all a most lovely dream. I could not recommend Armonia highly enough. The pictures don't do it justice, and dealing with the staff made it all perfect. Just perfect!"

"Thank you so much for welcoming us. This has been such a wonderful escape from reality. The house, garden, cows, and surrounding area are beautiful and charming and we are so sad to leave! We loved picking vegetables from the garden to make our lunches and we had Iside come cook dinner for us several times. We are trying to convince her to come back to the US with us! Drinking coffee on the back porch admiring the landscape was the perfect start to every day. The architecture and design of the house are spectacular. We felt comfortable and at home from the moment we got here. We feel very fortunate to have spent a week of our lives here and will always cherish the memories made here. We are already planning our visit here! Grazie!"
