Testimonials

We loved Villa Bruno

Hi John!
We got back last night and I can’t begin to express how much we loved Villa Bruno. It exceeded all of our expectations and we could not have been more thrilled! Everything from the insanely gorgeous setting to the food was amazing and we will definitely go back. We loved Bruno, too, who is so lovely and a true Italian gentleman!

We didn’t end up staying in the Annex as it was not on par with the rest of the villa, but we were all quite comfortable in the villa and there was plenty of space for the three families. We also particularly enjoyed two of the restaurant recommendations you gave us in your paperwork – La Logge in Siena for the ambience, and for the food our #1 award went to Antica di Torre in Castellina in Chianti. The latter was the best food we had in all of Italy and none of us can stop thinking about the truffle pasta special they had, and their insane jars of tiramisu (unrivaled anywhere). And of course the serene, firefly-studded walks to our local gem, the Rignana restaurant, were spectacular….the magic prevailing right down to the family of kittens that kept the kids entertained for hours (we went there two out of the seven nights and one family even returned for lunch).

Thank you for everything and hope you have a wonderful rest of the summer!!

Best,
Heather

The trip was wonderful!

Hi John,
The trip was wonderful! It rained, but we were looking for a week of rest and we got it. There was plenty of sun too. The home is lovely and the staff, Rafael and his wife, were very nice. Bruno came to say hello a couple of times and was an interesting fellow. Very gregarious.
I attached some photos from the trip. Thanks again for your help. We had an unforgettable time in Italy.

Bruno was wonderful

Hi John – Bruno was wonderful.  Not only lovely in and of itself but a great location – easy to Florence as well as lots of other smaller towns.   We really enjoyed coming back each day to such an idyllic setting and lovely villa.  We ended up leaving later and coming home earlier from day trips because we liked the villa so much.  Rosa’s cooking was delicious and she and her daughter were very nice and helpful.   I appreciate your help too – the packet was really helpful as a source of info and you were a delight to work with.  One comment – you might want to make clearer that the name on the villa gate is not “Bruno.”  Even our Italian driver had a hard time finding us because I hadn’t thought to call him and let him know to look for a different name.  We stayed in a villa in Amalfi the second week.  It was also lovely but very different – more modern and of course located overlooking the sea rather than the hills!  We really liked Amalfi too but if I had to choose just one place to return to it would be Bruno.  We liked the style of Bruno – It was more relaxing at Bruno and it was great having the option to eat in and not have to cook it yourself.  Also having someone to grocery shop was really convenient.  Hope to get back there soon!  Nancy

We loved the property

We loved the property very much. As I said before it was as advertise.  Alex and Rosa were very kind, accommodating and patient with the children. Rosa’s cooking was simply amazing and I would recommend that anyone staying there take full advantage of her culinary skills. The kids also claim that this was their favorite part of the trip by far.

Here are some of the suggestions from the group:

When we ordered the meats and cheese we all expected it to be prepared when we arrived.

A heads up about the mosquitoes would have been nice so we could bring a decent repellant. One of our group a particularly bad time with the little buggers.

The check out time caught us by surprise. Alex told us 9:30.  If we were aware of this we would scheduled a later train. Alex and Rosa were kind enough to let us leave at 11.

Other than that we had an amazing time!  Hope all is well.

We completely enjoyed the Villa

John,

Sorry it took so long to get back to you.  Things are back to normal after getting caught up with work. We completely enjoyed the villa.   The home and grounds were beautiful.   I  wish we had spent more time there actually enjoying it and relaxing, but we were on the go every day.   Bruno and Rosa took great care of us and everything was fantastic.  The birthday cake and prosecco  were a perfect addition,  and I appreciate the extra effort.   No complaints at all.  I would recommend it to anyone who is interested.

Too bad we can’t swing this kind of trip more often.  We would not hesitate to return and hope to someday. If only I had won the lottery last weekend . . . .

Thanks for setting this up for us, and please pass on our thanks to Bruno. It was a special time.
