Apartments to let for that ultimate relaxing holiday in Tuscany



Tuscany has a special charm that combines the beauty of nature and the genius of mankind, each complementing the other.  The arrow-straight pale green vineyards are caressed by lines of darker green cypress trees.  Rust coloured farm houses and moss-coated castles nestle amongst the winding sandy roads.  The symmetrically rounded hilltops are surmounted by charming towns and villages each with a unique charm.  Orciatico is one such small village affording spectacular views of the archetypal Tuscan landscape.  Every inch of land has been sculpted, first by the elements and then by generations of inhabitants whose goals were always twofold:  make the land produce as much as possible, make the land as beautiful as possible.

Me and my daughter spent a wonderfull first may holidays in Orciatico. The village is charming, the accomodation was perfect, we had everything we needed. Tuscany was ours, we were in the middle of it. We enyojed our stay despite the fact that our car broke down - once again thanks to Jill who organised the repair and was most helpfull! She was our Tuscan guardian angel. It was also very touching experience to meet someone like Jill.

I always say to my friends, that I'll come back to Lajatico as soon as possible. It is place from a fairy tale with Jill as a good fairy (but much younger :) She took care for every wish we had. We where there with our baby and she enjoyed it! Lajatico is beautiful place with everything that you need. We were traveling a lot to see other cities, but we could easily stay at Jill's apartment for whole week and enjoyed in a marvelous view from the pool!!

Hi Jill - can't thank you enough for such a wonderful holiday at Bellosguardo Lajatico. You made it a perfect holiday for us - always there to sort any problems or enquiries. Veronica and I now call you "Mrs. FIX IT" The tickets for the concert could not have been better. The appartment was great and the views fantastic. Many thanks for a perfect holiday. Thank Flavio for the airport transfers

Hi Jill, Thank you for making us so welcome in Tuscany. We had a lovely relaxing time and really enjoyed being in a beautiful location with stunning views and in a village where we were truly able to feel at home and most welcome. The plunge pool was lovely and you and your husband very kind and helpful. Lajatico is ideally situated to explore Tuscany and we enjoyed using some of the buses and being relatively near to the railway station and catching the train to the airport.The local market was interesting and being able to buy food that was locally scourced and very fresh was a treat. Thank you again. Kindest regards. Claire and Anne

Our first time with Jill and definately not our last!!! My boyfriend and I had a fantstic time in Italy especially in Lajatico. We we're a short walk away from the Theatre of Silence (Andrea Bocelli) and within very close distance to several major towns (we visited Volterra, San Gimignano, Florence, Sienna and Pisa during out one week stay). Would definately recommend Fattoria Fabbiano (vineyard) and the very quaint and wonderfull bakery on the door-step of 'La Mangiatoia', at Lajatico. Wonderful hospitality and a WONDERFUL holiday - Many thanks Jill!!

Me and my friend stayed in Lajatico for a week. It was a beautiful village and the appartment was perfect. The photos did not do it justice and the views from the pool were breath taking. Jill was the perfect host and told us how best to get around and where the best places to go were. Our trip was made all the better by Jill's suggestion to go to the beach, which we enjoyed so much we went three days running! I will definately be contacting Jill again for my next trip to Tuscany.

My wife and I have just returned from our Honeymoon in Orciatico where we stayed at La Torre. The place is picture postcard perfect, the weather great, and an excellent base to travel throughout Tuscany (Sienna, San Gimignano, Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Voltera and more!). Jill was an amazing host and knows the local area very well and is full of good travel tips. I also cannot recommend the local restaurant enough, which is run by Evelina. We ate there 5 out of the 7 nights we were there! This is a great place to stay for couples and families alike. A true jewel in the Tuscan countryside.

Orciatico is a fantastic place for a great relaxing holiday for both families and couples and Jill is the most accommodating host imaginable, my wife and I cannot recommend it enough.

My family and I had a fantastic holiday in Tuscany, and we thoroughly enjoyed Orciatico and "Le Torre". Orciatico is a very beautiful location, and provides a good base for exploring the Tuscan region. Thanks must go to Jill who really helped to make our stay memorable. I would definitely recommend Orciatico to anyone who seeks a genuine Tuscan village holiday experience.

The entire experience in Orciatico was amazing. So much so that we extended our stay in the village for an extra week. This is the perfect location in the country to "get away from it all". Centrally located and many locations are an easy 30-45 minute car drive away. Our host JILL was just what the doctor ordered and went above aqnd beyong what we expected to make sure that our stay was an enjoyable one. The entire family loved the the area and we will be back, no doubt.
