Villa La Pietra - Tuscany

Gardens in Italy

If visiting Italian gardens is your thing, visiting this Tuscan garden will not only impress you, but inspire you for so many reasons!  The grand sculpture, the perfectly manicured vegetable and fruit gardens and the incredibly lush pastures adorned it seems in perfect harmony with the tall standing trees, makes Villa La Pietra one of our favorite gardens in Tuscany

Named after the first milestone on the road from Florence to Bologna, and is set back at the end of a 0.8 km (Half a Mile) long cypress 'viale' - road up to the estate. It appears entirely seventeenth century, but neither the house nor the garden is as it seems.  

The original house, a typical four-square Renaissance country villa, received a new facade in the 17th  century when a stately baroque exterior was grafted on to the fifteenth-century building like an architectural second skin.

When we visit these gardens, it is on request only by the property owners and like so many places in Italy, not open to the general public, the care keepers themselves will show you around and it is as though you are stepping into a 'secret garden' of sorts when coming here.

Client Testimonials

Dear Guiseppe and Jesse,
We just returned from our most wonderful vacation to Italy and wanted to first thank you for putting together such a wonderful trip, and second to provide some feedback for the future.

Hotels
1. Hotel Sovestro in San Gimignano was wonderful. The staff were very friendly and helpful and made the first portion of our journey very stress free. They made us feel like we were part of their family. I would recommend it to anyone and would specifically ask for it if we were to make a return visit.

2. Hotel La Baia in Monterosso was nice and it's location was very good especially for us older folks humping luggage from/to the train station.

3. Hotel Lucchesi in Florence- what can I say expect FANTASTIC. The rooftop view at sunset is well worth it. Again very friendly and helpful staff. Would recommend it to everyone.

Wine Tour
Money well spent. We had a great time overall. The driver Mario was OUTSTANDING. He had lots of local knowledge as well as about winemaking. USE HIM AGAIN!!!

The various wineries we visited on tour:
Altesino- fantastic and they were not cheap on their pouring. Great experience.
Azienda Agricola Patrizia Cencion Sloaria- Again a great tour by one of the owner's daughters. We felt like we were the only thing on their mind although there were other customers there. A great way to complete the day.

Again we had a fantastic time and are very appreciative of everything you booked for us. We wish you continued success and if our travels should bring us back to Italy, we know who to call.
