Within an ancient monastery, the little villa opens on a spacious garden encircled by very old cypress and pine trees. A gate from this garden leads down to the swimming pool, surrounded by olive trees and with lovely panorama. An intimate location, ideal for a couple.

We absolutely loved our stay in such magical surroundings. Gabriella and Gabriel were so nice and made us feel at home from the moment we arrived and so did Milo (one of the three friendly dogs). We were in the smaller cottage, which was plenty big enough for two people and alth…

We had a lovely stay with Gabriella and her son. Both made us feel very welcome and, when we had a problem with our hire car, really helped us out. The accommodation is basic but perfect for couples needing to stay a couple of nights - a quiet retreat in the Tuscan countryside wi…

We stayed at La Badiola for 5 days in August and enjoyed every single minute. It's a quiet little paradise, the house is nice and cosy, perfect for a couple, the garden and the pool are fantastic. We met Gabriella herself only once, but her son and daughter are perfect and friend…

We have stayed at the little white villa for 17 days in July/Aug 2015. It was a mixed experience. Let us start with the positives. It is a great location on top of a hill, with many beautiful (olive) trees around you, a beautiful garden and a lovely swimmingpool which is frequen…

Response from Gabriella:
1) There were four glasses in the house and multiple knives. When you needed better-performing knives we provided them to you immediately. We would have done so with the glasses if you had asked more of them. Stove buttons have been fixed in the meantime, but let us just stress that the little problem you are talking about was cause of no danger at all. Bath curtain: it was a choice, we didn’t think it was crucial and no one has ever complained about it (anyways it’s a small fix that can be done in a day if regarded as absolutely necessary). 2) The statement on cleanliness is so vague that we cannot really answer it. 3) Scorpions are rare, but during a long stay like yours it can happen to find one. For the readers, we are talking of small (few centimetres) *harmless* animals. 4) Not drinking water from tap: that’s the way it is and we prefer being conservative on these issues with guests. Tap water can be used for all other purposes though. 5) Sorry if this happened - we try to keep the dogs on our section of the property, but sometimes they find a way to come say hi to the guests. They are small-medium size and friendly. 6) We quote from our airbnb page “We speak Italian and basic English”. Gabriele speaks enough English for the job and indeed we never had communication problems with any of the guests. Gabriella does not, but she is not involved in first person in the relationship with guests. You say “At first they seemed to be really nice, but they turned out to be not so hospitable at all”. OK, let’s face it. You seemed to like our place very much, to the point of referring to it as “a paradise” and of asking us if two of your relatives could join you here for a couple of days. After our negative answer, you had an explosive and rather inappropriate reaction and cut all communication with us (see also our commentary on your airbnb page). We think this is the one and only reason for your backstabbing in the form of a negative review.

We really enjoyed our stay at Gabriella's Litte White Villa. The location in the mountains is lovely and absolutely quiet, so it is perfect for getting rest and relaxation. The pool was very clean and is in a sheltered and sunny postion so it was perfectly usable even in late Sep…
