Villa Description

This luxury villa costs a little more than most of our holiday rental houses on the Tuscany Umbria border, but when you consider the high standard of the furnishing, the fittings, the finishes and the spacious rooms, it really does offer incredible value, book early to avoid disappointment. Each of the three bedroom suites has an en-suite bathroom with designer sanitary-ware, a balcony and room to sit and relax in comfortable chairs in your own space. The generously proportioned kitchen / dining room is very well equipped and there are two spacious lounges on the ground floor. A fourth bathroom is accessed from one of the lounges. There are mosquito nets on all the windows.

 

This is one of the best villas of its size and price available for self catering holidays on the Tuscany Umbria border, it is also suitable for a wheelchair user as the second lounge with the bathroom has a large sofa bed and can be turned into a fourth bedroom with en-suite bathroom. Villa Forconi is near the top of a hill with magnificent views across the Tuscany Umbria border and the beautiful Niccone Valley. The views stretch to the more distant Apennine mountains of Umbria and Le Marche.

We had an amazing time!!! The house was beautiful - total paradise! We couldn't believe how gorgeous it was. We will definitely go back again.

We had a fantastic time at the Villa Forconi (13th - 20th August) - the house was wonderful and our grandchildren really loved the pool. The facilities were perfect for us. The weather was superb (not too hot at night) and Mirella (the housekeeper) was most helpful.

We had a wonderful time and absolutely loved the villa. It's of a very high standard and in a beautiful location. I didn't meet Mirella but our friends said she was lovely and very helpful. We shall definitely return next year or the year after.

We had a lovely time at the Villa, thank you so much for such a beautiful home to stay in. We were more than comfortable and loved all the facilities you provided.

We loved the ambiance, décor and quality that the villa exuded and we would have no hesitation in returning in the future or recommending to others. We appreciated it's privacy, the stunning views and the tranquillity of the location.We achieved all our objectives...train to Firenze, car to Siena but failed to find suitable time for some wine tasting! Enjoyed being a "pool boy" for the week and made frequent use of BBQ.

Wonderful Villa

We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday at your wonderful villa and would love to return one day. Thanks you so much for allowing us the privilege of staying in Villa Forconi. It was lovely to be able to see Castle Reschio from our room as we have fond memories of performing a concert there some years ago with a young choir from England.

Stunning Location

The villa provided everything we expected - and much more, what a stunning location Mirella was absolutely charming - and very helpful.We very much enjoyed Martin's wine-appreciation evening. We had downloaded his book of walks but decided that they were perhaps for a slightly younger age group than ours. We confined ourselves to visiting as many of the hilltop towns as we could sensibly fit into our two week stay- all beautiful in different ways.

Wonderful Place for a Family holiday

We had a wonderful time at the villa which is really lovely and well set up. It is charming!

Outstanding

This is a first rate villa. The villa has all of the amenities, is wonderfully decorated and has tremendous views. We would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a luxury villa experience.

Marvelous place

Villa Forconi is a wonderful place. We have stayed there together with our two children (11 and 8 years) and we really enjoyed our stay.
The villa is extremely comfortable, it lacks really nothing and is very tastefully decorated, extraordinary class for a holiday villa.
The House is a bit away from the village, but thereby you also enjoy absolute peace and privacy.
The villa is also very well located to do several excursions within Umbria and Tuscany.
We will definitively return !
