Description

Le Rondini is a very special property located on the same estate as La Capinera, one of our most popular houses.

It is furnished with some antiques and with all modern facilities such as air-conditioning in all bedrooms, well equipped kitchen, stereo system, fax machine, wi-fi connection and satellite TV. A particular feature of this property is the spectacular swimming pool (salted water), without doubt one of the best in our program. As at La Capinera, Le Rondini is a good base to explore Tuscany, being conveniently located only 10 kms from the highway connecting Pisa to Florence. Resident cats in the neighbourhood.

Guest Reviews for Le Rondini

Lesa S. (Lewisville, Usa)

We have just returned from 30 days in the Tuscan hillsides. We rented 2 villas through Salogi, Villa Le Rondini and Villa Camporempoli. We began our first 2 weeks at Le Rondini. It was a wonderful and comfortable home. The nights spent on the front patio overlooking the countryside were magical. The home was clean, the rooms and beds very comfortable and the kitchen was very functional. Its location was a great launching spot to visit other areas like Siena, Lucca, San Gimiginano, Florence etc. Our communications with Salogi were always timely and effective. They were very attentive to our needs and requests. They pre-shopped for us a bit before arrive which really helped. There is a local grocery 10 minutes away and we dined at Quattro Hotel Gigli at least 6 times while we were there. Our second 2 weeks was in the Chianti region close to Panzano.


Justin G. (Potomac Falls, Usa)

The owners could not have been any nicer. The house was as nice as the pictures show. The pool is huge and the bedrooms
of good size. I would recommend this place to anyone thinking of traveling to Tuscany in the future.

As two couples, we absolutely loved our week-long stay at Le Rondini. We were welcomed by the owners with fresh eggs and a lovely bottle of local vino! The villa is picture perfect, set in idyllic roaming gardens which lead down to the pool. We enjoyed many meals on the balcony overlooking the lush green valley. We walked in Montopoli for caffe' which is an easy 4 kms round trip. One evening we even enjoyed a huge open fire in the very comfortable lounge. A huge highlight for us was having Letizia and Raphella cook for us a superb 4 course lunch made with all local organic produce. Gorgeous women who cook with love and passion.

We stayed here with four friends the last week of September. There was nothing we did not like about this villa! Our greeters were friendly & helpful. The main outside entrance has a grand staircase that is both beautiful & impressive with columns & cherubs at the entrance. The outside dining area has a stunning view of the pool as well as the valley below. The weather was perfect so we were able to enjoy the saltwater pool. The villa itself was very comfortable & clean. The three bedrooms we used were very nice & all had a view. I was worried about having WiFi problems but it worked great. In addition to the outside dining area, there is an outside covered patio on the opposite side of the villa with a couch & chairs to sit & enjoy a glass of wine. The kitchen has a good sized refrigerator, dishwasher & pretty much everything we needed. We had chef services on two nights & it was wonderful! We watched the sunset while enjoying dinner. We loved this villa & hope to stay here again.”

Beautiful scenery. More rural than we had expected. Lovely house and pool. We loved our private pool and eating our meals on the veranda. Our on site Manager was awesome it that they picked us up when we were trying to find a cab and sent flowers on my birthday. Wonderful


S T. (Usa)

Our family stayed at Le Rondini - 10 of us were there and the accommodations were very comfortable. The pool was a great choice as it gave the family something to do on the days when we didn't feel like exploring the countryside.


E G. (Usa)

Villa was perfect. Villa was well maintained inside and out. It was just what we wanted it a Tuscan villa. Location was great was us. it was private. Meal at Macelleria's was so good. I have no least favorite. We even liked the cats


G G. (Usa)

We are home now after a wonderful trip. We absolutely loved La Rondini! I could have stayed all summer.


A G. (Usa)

We loved Le Rondini and hated to leave. When you stay there you feel immersed in the gorgeous Tuscan countryside... feeling the breezes, hearing the birdsong, and smelling the aroma of rosemary and jasmine. The location and view were captivating, the grounds spacious, the landscaping beautiful, the pool indulgent, the interior completely charming and comfortable. Dinners on the terrace while admiring the view were the highlight of our trip


J C. (Usa)

Our stay at Le Rondini Villa was perfect. The villa was amazing, the owners were outstanding and everything was excellent. Even better than advertised.


B T. (Usa)

Le Rondini was an excellent villa and location. The owner were very helpful and made us feel at home. The villa was a beautiful home with plenty of room for the 6 of us. I would highly recommend this villa for a vacation stay in the Montopoli area. The owners were friendly and helpful

Wir (4 befreundete Paare), waren im September im Le Rondini. Es war schon das 3. mal, dass wir uns ein Haus in der Toskana gemietet haben. Dieses aber hat unsere durchaus schon sehr hohen Erwartungen übertroffen. Die Lage ist sehr malerisch und man überblickt eine kleine Hügelkette und schaut ins Tal. Das Grundstück ist sehr groß aber auch wirklich top gepflegt. Mediterrane Vegetation, so wie man sich das erwartet, Rosmarin, Lavendel, Feigenbaum, Olivenbäume etc............ Das Haus besteht aus Erdgeschoss und 1. Stock. Die Ausstattung und hier vor allem die Küche sind extrem hochwertig und lassen wirklich keinen Wunsch offen. Geschirrspüler, riesiger Eiskasten, Bestecke, tolle Weingläser etc........... alles vorhanden. Alles in allem ein traumhafter Urlaub in einem super Haus, das extrem hochwertig ausgestattet ist. Eine top Empfehlung. Preis/Leistung stimmen hier absolut! (We - 4 couples of friends -, were in September at Le Rondini. It was the 3rd time that we rented a house in Tuscany. But this surpassed our already quite high expectations. The location is very picturesque and overlooks a small ridge and looked down into the valley. The grounds are very large but really very well maintained. Mediterranean vegetation, just as you would expect, rosemary, lavender, fig trees, olive trees etc ............ The house consists of ground floor and 1st floor. The facilities and especially the kitchen are extremely high quality. Dishwasher, huge refrigerator, cutlery, wine glasses etc ........... everything available.All in all a fantastic holiday in a great house that is extremely high quality. A top recommendation. Price / performance ratio is right here absolutely!


S M. (Usa)

Great property in an interesting area The house was done with a high level of finish. It was very attractive, inside and outside. We were very happy with the welcome from the owners and they were very accommodating to our requests. The maid service was great. The kitchen was really well equipped, definitely one of the best of the 20 or so villas that I have rented. I would highly recommend this property.


A H. (The Netherland)

We stayed with eight persons in this beautifull house and we had lots of space inside and outside. The house is very complete and everything worked well. The owners made us feel very welcome and we enjoyed their home-made pizza very much! The position of the house is good for making trips.


J B. (Usa)

Beautiful Tuscan countryside, lovely villa, spectacular pool. This was a perfect setting for our family vacation. The owner was gracious and helpful. We loved dining outside surrounded by beautiful views, shopping at local markets, relaxing in the pool, enjoying the beauty of the gardens, seeing daily life in Montopoli, and touring nearby Tuscan towns and cities. Easy and short access to the Pisa airport. Nearby train station at Montopoli/San Ramono makes travel to Florence easier than driving and worrying about parking. Would not hesitate to refer people to this villa. Pay attention to the recommendation to not drive a low slung car or van..


G R. (Usa)

The location of Le Rondini was wonderful. We were 30 kilometers from Pisa, 30 from Firenze, 20 from Lucca and a stone's throw from many other smaller towns in the area. We were easily able to tour the wine country and the Chinque Terra. The home was very comfortable and the owners, Erika and her family, were very helpful to our entire group. Erika and her Mother prepared a wonderful dinner for a group of 8; it was delicious!


G G. (Germany)

Wir , eine 8-köpfige Familie mit Hund fühlten uns vom ersten Tag an sehr wohl. Alles verlief bestens - jeder Tag war ein Highlight - das Haus ist groß genug um eine ruhige Ecke zum Nachdenken zu finden. Pool und der große Gartengrill sind eine Schau! Lediglich empfehlen wir allen ein gutes Antimückenmittel parat zu haben - man ist trotz langer Hose und Socken ein gnadenloses Objekt. [English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] We, a family of 8 with dog felt very comfortable from day one. Everything went perfectly - every day was a highlight - the house is big enough to find a quiet corner to think. Pool and barbecue are a great show! We only recommend to have a good mosquito repellent ready - the mosquitos are merciless despite our long pants and socks.


J V. (Canada)

When we arrived at Le Rondini, we were speechless! It is truly the villa of our dreams. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is simply amazing. The interior offers modern conveniences, but is beautifully rustic. The terrace offers an amazing view of the surrounding hills as well as the mountains in the distance. There are 8 of us and this home provided plenty of room for all. We did cook and the kitchen was well stocked and we even cooked steaks and pizza on the outdoor wood oven! Mauricio met us and helped us find a grocery store that was wonderful! Montopoli is the town and it is quaint. Also a wonderful restaurant at the hotel. The villa is located in the Pisa region. We were able to reach many sights within an hour's drive of the villa. Luxury Retreats delivered exactly what we were looking for and Vladimir was a great help in setting it all up flor us. Rent Le Rondini and you will not be disappointed!

Das Haus entsprach völlig unseren Erwartungen. Schöne Zimmer und Bäder, große Küche mit guter Ausstattung, Schönes Esszimmer, Wohnraum mit gemütlicher Sitzgelegenheit und tollem offenen Kamin (der auch wirklich gut funktioniert)!!!! Der Pool ist wunderschön angelegt, mit ausreichend Liegen und Sonnenschirmen. Auch die ganze Gartenanlage ist sehr gepflegt, der "Poolboy" kommt regelmäßig und säubert den Pool. Für das Haus kommen 3x in der Woche 2 Putzhilfen und bringen wieder Ordnung in die Schlafräume und Bäder. Die Handtücher werden jedesmal gewechselt, die Betten gemacht, die Bäder geputzt, die Küche und Wohnräume gefegt,........und sogar der Müll wird entsorgt. Erika ist sehr hilfsbereit und die Verständigung klappt sehr gut in englisch und natürlich italienisch. Bei Fragen oder Problemen einfach kurz eine SMS an Erika senden, Sie kümmert sich schnell darum. Lage des Hauses schön im Grünen gelegen, bis ins Dorf Montopoli sind es ca. 25 min. Zu Fuß. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in der nähernden Umgebung, Penny, Lidl, Coop, ...... Ausflüge nach Pisa,Florenz in ca. 40min. Erreichbar. Es waren 2 wunderschöne, erholsame Ferienwochen die wir dort in den Pfingstferien 2013 verbringen konnten. Mille, Mille Grazie an Erika [ The house met completely our expectations. Beautiful bedrooms and bathrooms, big well equipped kitchen, nice dining area, sitting room with comfortable sofas and open fireplace (perfectly working!)! The swimming pool is wonderful with several sun beds and sun umbrellas. Also the whole garden is very well cared, the poolboy came regularly und took care of the pool. For the house 2 maids came three times und cleaned all the rooms and bathrooms. The towels were changed each time, the beds made, the bathrooms cleaned, as well as the kitchen, including taking out the rubbish. Erika was very helpful and the communication with her in English or Italian was very easy. For any problem we just had to send her an sms and she was taking care immediately of it. The position in the green is nice and easy to reach the nearest village, Montopoli, in about 25 minutes by foot. Food shops and supermarktes very close, so were the airport of Pisa, Florence.. We had 2 wonderful, relaxing weeks of holiday during the Pentecost.] (Translation from Germany by Salogi)

sehr schönes Haus, herrlicher Garten, fabelhafte Lage, ein toller Ausblick und sehr liebe und hilfsbereite Eigentümer! Definitiv ein Ort, den man gerne wiederbesuchen möchte!


S W. (Usa)

We cannot say enough wonderful things about our week at Le Rondini. Erika and her family were delightful and were always available to answer any requests( train schedules) or questions. The property and home were beautiful and immaculately kept. The pictures provided on the website do not begin to bring justice to how beautiful the grounds and the surrounding countryside are. The charming village of Montopoli was also a delight. Our week at Le Rondini was everything we had hoped for when we decided to rent a villa in Tuscany. Thank you for a fabulous experience!


S B. (Usa)

Le Rondini was so much more than we could ever have expected. The owners, Maurizio, Valeria and Erika were wonderful hosts and did everything possible to make us welcome -- even to the extent of tracking down luggage that the airline lost. They even guided us to the local grocery store which has great produce and cold cuts as well as everything you would expect from a supermarket. The villa was beautiful and had every convenience that we could require. Even olive oil, condiments and spices were provided -- we imagine that other guests had left some items that they had purchased. The views from the villa were a delight and made us want to explore the local countryside. Getting lost on the back roads was simply fun. However, a GPS is a requirement. The areas for alfresco dining were perfect - we ate outside at every opportunity and had wine by the pool. Montopoli is a beautiful village with surprisingly wonderful restaurants and incredible scenery. It was also perfectly located for day trips to Firenze, Pisa, San Gimignano and the coast.
