Villa Pennella è semplicemente perfetta! Abbiamo soggiornato li per una settimana in luglio, 2 famiglie con 4 bambini. La casa è funzionale, arredata con gusto, la vista è paradisiaca e gli spazi perfetti! L'acqua della piscina è un po' fredda ma faceva talmente caldo che finalmente ci è andata bene così :) I proprietari sono disponibili e gentilissimi.
Da rifare ancora e ancora!

This villa is the perfect stay when visiting the southern part of Tuscany. The landscape is simply breathtaking and surprises you every time you look at it. You will not regret your booking. Also the interior of the villa is well taken care of. This is Dolce Vita optima forma!

As we sit in Pennella looking over the grays, the browns, the creams and the greens that together with the lovely shadows make up the Val d'Orcia and enjoy the end of a day, we thought we should say thank you to the owners of this lovely villa and surroundings for allowing us to enjoy their land. We have thoroughly enjoyed our week. The appointments are so tasteful and the kitchen and sitting areas work so well. We would love to return in the future. We have enjoyed ourselves totally and we have found the Italian people to be warm and friendly - the Val d'Orcia is Divine.

Wonderful house. Great space, very nicely furnished. Pleasant pool for lounging. Good and efficient kitchen. Tremendous view of the Val D'Orcia. Approximately 10 min from Pienza. Would go back again.

Perfekt für den schönsten Urlaub.
Wir waren zwei Wochen in Villa Pennella. Leider nur 2 Wochen... Dieses Haus ist einfach perfekt, wunderschön eingerichtet und bietet eine unglaubliche Aussicht auf Pienza und die herrliche Toskana. Alle Geräte funktionieren und die Küche bietet alles um ein leckeres Abendessen zu kochen. Geschirr, Gläser und Besteck sind reichlich vorhanden. Dank der unglaublich netten Marcella ist das Haus komplett sauber. Sie kümmert sich um Fragen und bringt frisches Focaccia zum Frühstück. Sie ist der gute Geist des Hauses.
Der Pool ist unbeschreiblich... Nur wenige Meter entfernt vom Haus kann man in Ruhe seine Bahnen ziehen, mit den Kindern plantschen oder einfach nur abkühlen. Es sind ausreichend Sonnenstühle vorhanden - ebenso ein schöner Schattenplatz. Der Pool ist absolut sauber. Früh morgens in aller Stille wird er vom Gärtner gereinigt - so ist man völlig ungestört.
In wenigen Minuten ist man in Pienza und kann dort die Lokale, die herrliche Altstadt und die Museen und Kirchen genießen. In Montecchiello sind ebenfalls die wichtigsten Läden (Alimentari, Lokale, Bäcker) vorhanden. Siena ist ganz in der Nähe und sollte auch besichtigt werden.
Wer einen wunderschönen Urlaub in der Toskana verbringen möchte, sollte dieses Haus mieten. Wir kommen gerne im nächsten Jahr wieder. Wir freuen uns jetzt schon darauf und bedanken uns bei Filippo für eine herrliche Zeit in seinem Haus... mille grazie

My family and I (from Australia) had the privilege of staying at Villa Pennella for a week during September 2014. Our party was 5 adults and one baby so we had the whole villa. The villa was absolutely magnificent, just as shown in the pictures. It was immaculately clean, beautifully presented and had everything you could possibly want. Outside, the loggias were beautiful for afternoon drinks and dinners, the views are so stunning. The pool area was also beautiful and well maintained. The location was perfect for visiting many of the small towns in the region. Pienza was our favourite, and we were spoiled for choice with some amazing restaurants. Our favourite was Terazza Val D'Orcia, but we didn't have a bad meal while we were there. A must-do while you are staying at the villa is a dinner cooked by Mrs Marcella. The food was so amazing, we had her cook for us for a second night! Although there were Wi-Fi issues during our stay, the management was exceptionally helpful in trying to rectify the issue. Although they could not fix it during our stay, we're sure it will be fixed for future visits. The only real difficulty we encountered was finding the property. If booking the property we would probably recommend getting actual gps coordinates. It was difficult to find using the maps given. We will definitely return to this property and would have no hesitation recommending it to anybody who wanted to visit the Val D'Orcia region.

Wir haben La Penella schon zwei Mal besucht. Das Haus erfüllt alle Erwartungen. Es ist liebevoll eingerichtet, wunderschön gelegen und die Ruhe ist Erhohlung pur.Der Pool ist herrlich groß und die Haubesorgerin ist stets bemüht, einem alle Wünsche zu erfüllen. Der Ausblick auf 360 Grad Toscana lässt allerdings wenige Wünsche offen. Wir kommen sicher wieder!

Encore un grand merci pour la villa Pennella que nous avons louée du 6 au 13 juillet.
Cette maison est merveilleuse, décorée avec beaucoup de goût, accueillante et reposante. Nous y avons passé une semaine extraordinaire dans un décor de rêve.
La vallée d'Orcia est splendide et nous ne nous lassions d'admirer les alentours de la villa. Depuis la brume du petit matin jusqu'au coucher du soleil, le paysage évoluait tout en perfection. La nature y est paisible et sereine, tout respire la quiétude.
Encore un grand merci à Marcella pour son accueil, son dévouement (elle nous a réservé un resto alors que nous arrivions très tard) et pour ses bons petits plats italiens.
Nous n'oublierons pas de sitôt ces vacances.

Wow!! I kept saying it all during our stay. When you rent a villa for a holiday, you are always apprehensive about what it is going to be like until you've actually seen it, especially as we are quite discerning and critical. Have no concerns whatever about Villa Penella near Pienza. The photographs were true, the descriptions were accurate, the communications excellent. Quality goes all the way through from the website, right through to the actual property.

The situation is panoramic, set a short distance up a bumpy lane off a quiet road, with unobstructed all round views of typical Tuscan countryside. Pienza, only five or ten minutes away, similarly Montichello. Penella is close to all the main Tuscan towns, no long journeys anywhere, with spectacular breathtaking views over vineyards at every twist and turn.

The whole villa is exceptionally well appointed; so much thought has been put into everything in and around the place you can tell it has actually been fitted out for the owners personal use rather than a holiday let business. Very comfortable and well furnished large sitting room, smart and fully equipped kitchen, ideally positioned shaded loggia with comfy chairs and outdoor eating facilities. The bedrooms each with views over the countryside, comfortable beds and fine linen, and of course luxurious bathrooms that Italians with their sense of style, seem to excel at. 

We had a car problem which couldn't have been easily solved without the time and help of the Massimo the gardener... and Mrs Marcella who met us with a splendid basket of essential foods, including good wine, coffee and much more. The owners of this Villa are obviously very committed to ensuring that their guest have a relaxing and great stay in their own private villa.

In the child safe garden, at the end of a very hot and dry summer, the Swallowtail butterflies chased each other over the flowers, shrubs and herbs. Down the steps is a well maintained, good sized pool, shower and shaded seating area.

The nearby town of Montichello has a superb restaurant, La Porta,  that shouldn't be missed, and on the SLOW journey along the lane back to the villa, car headlights pick out Porcupine, Deer, Badgers, Hares, Foxes.

Would we go again... in a heartbeat, would we recommend it - absolutely.

We stayed one week in august 2011 on this beautiful location.
We spend our holidays for more than 10 years in Italy, but this region is by far the best of Italy. The house is built on a small hill with wonderful views on the countryside of the val D'Orcia.
This is a ideal place to relax : the daily walks at sunrise, the outside breakfasts with panoramic view, the quietness, the large swimmingpool, the dinners at sunset.
The accommodation is very tasteful, comfortable, clean and well maintained.
We met the owners twice, they are very friendly, generous and do everything to make it the guests as comfortable as possible.
We are so pleased about this location that we have already booked again for this year. We highly recommend this villa to anyone who wants to visit Tuscany.

Marc B. (Belgium) – 18/03/2012

 

We visit the Tuscany since many many years, but this was really the best location we ever had. The house is amazing and full of lovely details. The kitchen was great and we also had a big new barbecue station outside. The pool was clean and had a wonderful view. Our three little pugs enjoyed the holiday like we did!
If you would have a luxury special trip you have to choose this house!
Thanks also to the very friendly owner!
We hope to come back in 2012!!!!!!

Pennella is a typical Tuscan farmhouse reached via dirt track. It’s beautifully situated on a small hill which gives a 360 degree panorama of Val d’Orcia, across the farm land to the hills that surround.
The interior is typically Tuscan, we stayed near the pool area. The pool area is a sun trap and we were grateful for the shaded area when the sun got too hot as well as a dip in the pool. The outdoor shower with hot water is a real luxury whilst looking across the fields!
We had a lovely relaxing time and would not hesitate to recommend. The location is very good for sight-seeing or just relaxing away from the rest of the world.

Shut your eyes and imagine your favourite place to be… And that is Pennella. Whether you want to lie beside the pool and soak up the sun overlooking a landscape which is so beautiful that it has been protected by Unesco as a world famous landscape. Or whether you want to sit on the terrasse with friends and drink some wine you have just picked up from Montepulciano, and eat from a platter of local delicacies picked up from Pienza. Or whether you want to lie in your bed with crisp Italian sheets surrounded by antique Italian furniture reading your favourite magazine, and feel like you are part of a magazine cover for Architectural Digest or Vogue Living. Or whether you want to be the traveller, and each day visit yet another exquisite village in the Val d’Orcia – and return each evening to heaven… Whatever – you will find it all at Pennella.

Thank you for the lovely time my wife and I had staying at Pennella. We really enjoyed ourselves and very much appreciated both the villa and the tremendous views in every direction.
We would very much like to visit again particularly springtime as the green fields, wild flowers and poppies must be wonderful to see.
A very relaxing holiday and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the villa.
