A lovely house in a quiet location
We rented this property for 4 weeks so that various family members could join us at various points during our stay. Everyone loved it particularly the swimming pool. The location was such that many “sites” were within no more than an hour’s drive. As we had young (grand)childrenwith us for much of the time, our eating out was primarily at lunchtime when many restaurants do not serve pizza. Worth bearing in mind that Lo Strettoio -2km from La Salceta - does do them at lunchtime on Tuesdays ! Sunday lunch is an institution and we very much enjoyed joining the locals on all 3 Sundays during our stay. Our nearest restaurant - Casa del Buono - was the most sophisticated ( lovely fish dishes) and the staff were both friendly and helpful.
Marina has helpfully produced some information sheets with restaurant and other recommendations. We would not have run out of places to go and/or to eat if we had been there for 12 weeks let alone 4!
We did go off piste on a number of occasions and enjoyed visits to Anghiari and Asciano, the former in particular being amazing.
The kitchen is fairly simple but then so is most Italian food. We are already missing the fabulous tomatoes and mozzarella!
Finally, Marina is a delightful owner and the wine from her vineyard is lovely
I thank you for the nice review and I am happy that your stay in Salceta was happy and relaxing. I look forward to seeing you again, there are still many interesting places to visit nearby.
Villa Salceta is a stunning house set away from the bustle of the cities.
The house has everything one would need for a comfortable stay and Marina was extremely kind and helpful when we arrived tired from our journey. It is easy to get to Arezzo, Sienna and Florence, but also lovely to be away from the cities in a beautiful country house with cooling pool. We had a series of friends and family stay and the house was ideal for a large group. The wine is excellent, WiFi good , and local amenities easy to access.
I thoroughly recommend.
Thank you Sophie for your nice review. I'm very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay at Salceta and that you specially liked the quiet peaceful countryside and… my wine.
Looking forward to meeting you soon.
Perfect property, wonderful owner
We just enjoyed a fantastic week in Tuscany and can’t imagine finding a better home to rent than this! We were 4 adults & 1 teenager so the house gave us more than enough room to spread out. It is a mid-1800’s farmhouse that has been meticulously updated while maintaining all of the original charm. We cooked almost every night, sourcing fresh herbs from the garden and dining al fresco. The pool is enormous and the perfect way to refresh following a day of exploring the Tuscan countryside (it’s only 2 years old).
The property owner, Marina, is phenomenal! All correspondences beforehand were prompt and clear. We arrived late Sunday, when all the nearby supermarkets had closed; Marina escorted us to a small store nearby whose owners spoke no English, and helped us pick out some essentials. She has a wealth of knowledge of the area and made excellent suggestions for our stay. Last but not least...her wine & olive oil! Both excellent!
A car is most definitely required, and makes day trips to nearby walled towns like Siena & Arezzo very convenient. Took the train from nearby Montevarchi in to Florence...very simple. The location, like everything else, is superb. We’re so happy with our decision and hope to return one day. Grazie Marina!!
Dear Colin & Co,
I thank you for the wonderful review. It was a real pleasure to welcome you to Salceta and I'm glad you had a great holiday in Tuscany. It will certainly be a great pleasure for me to welcome you again in the future. A hug to all of you . Thank you. Arrivederci!

Nous avons été enchanté par toutes les suggestions de Marina depuis l’épicerie en passant par les restaurants,le vignoble Il Borro et la ville médiévale de Cortona!
Nous recommandons fortement cette propriété et pourrions y retourner avec grand plaisir pour poursuivre notre découverte de la Toscane

Chère Geneviève, Je suis contente que vous ayez passé de bonnes vacances chez moi. Avoir une famille comme vous était un réel plaisir, gai, gentil et curieux. J'espère vraiment que vous pourrez revenir, il y a encore beaucoup à découvrir ici ou tout simplement vous amuser dans le jardin en jouant au ping pong.
Fantastic Tuscany Accomodation
If there were more than 5 stars, we would have selected the higher number. The property is wonderful, clean and quiet. The relative central location to amazing sites in Tuscany is exactly what we wanted. Very highly recommended!
Dear Todd and Catherine,
thank you for taking the time to express yourself with such kind words.
I'm happy that you had a relaxing and pleasant stay at Salceta.
Beautiful house and gracious host
We had a lovely time at Salceta. The house is very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The location is gorgeous - peaceful and relaxing. The pool was warm and a welcome relief from the hot weather. Bepe came everyday to clean the pool and sorted out a wasp invasion! The mosquitos were irritating so we would advise stocking up on sprays etc. The markets locally were excellent for fresh local produce and the Coop in Montevarchi was good for the other shopping. We would recommend Marina’s wine and olive oil - both delicious. She is also a very gracious host.
We would highly recommend the house and will definitely return.
I was particularly pleased to read your comments on Salceta and that your vacation was relaxing and peceful. I am sorry for the annoyance of the mosquitoes that I will try to eliminate with natural methods
Looking forward to see you soon.
Salceta is located in an almost magical triangle, Florence, Arezzo, Siena and Cortona are only 25-35 minutes by car. Nearby there are many places to explore and visit: the villages of Borro and Loro Ciuffenna, the medieval church of Gropina, the Pratomagno mountain with pristine forests and paths for long walks. For wine lovers and good food choices are numerous: the house is located near renowned wineries, where you can make particularly interesting tastings and restaurants in the area marry tradition with innovation with careful use of local products.
For those who are looking for thermal waters, the well-known San Giovanni thermal baths in Rapolano Terme are less than 50 minutes away by car
