Hi Lucia We had a great stay at Villa Il Cuculo. A wonderful house in a beautiful environment. Vincenzo amended a wonderful pizza supper for us, and we enjoyed his restaurant as well. We went to Siena, Arezzo and Firenze and to your wonderful National Forest. The food, the weather and the pool are fabulous. And of course the Vino Rosso, Vino Bianco and Limoncello. From Ottawa, Canada.

Cinque giorni stupendi, in una casa ancora più stupenda, volati via come l’anno passato. Con la speranza che il 2012 sia almeno splendido quanto un briciolo delle colline di Stia, un saluto e un abbraccio dai “RAGAZZI DEL MARE”.

Enjoyed the large, spacious villa, including the propery which we explored most days. My son loved watching the chickens and crawling up and down the stairs. Pizzeria in town was family friendly with fantastic spaghettis and pizzas. Got along fine in stores even with very limited Italian. Lucia is very resourceful and helpful with anything! Thank you for a great experience in Stia! Ciao ciao

Dear Lucia and family,
We have had two wonderful weeks in your beautiful house. The kids enjoyed the pool and we adults enjoyed a relaxing time by the pool and some nice meals prepared by Nella and her helper. Also very nice restaurants in Stia. This was our first trip to Tuscany but not the last! Friendly people, beautiful area and very good food and wine. All the best!!!

Thank you to Dalle Macchie family for making our stay at the Villa Cuculo so wonderful. Our meal prepared by Manuela was out of this world and all who stay here should enjoy her cooking and warm smiles. We suggest taking the drive to La Verna to see a part of Tuscany seldom seen by tourist. If going to Florence, drive to Sieci and take the short train ride to avoid traffic and parking.
Many thanks, the Welkas. Tony, MaryAnn, Paul, Kathy

What a wonderful time we (my family and friends) have had in Stia. To Florence-Pisa-La Verna-Siena. Our last day we found sun and beach in Grosseto. My husband + sun in law braved the cool pool and when we saw clear skies the view was amazing. The best was our evening meal at the grand table. Thank you for your Villa.

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful villa, and exploring Stia and at surrounding Tuscany. Thanks to Manuela for the delicious dinner! We could not have imagined a better vacation. We came from Baltimore, Maryland, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, North Carolina and California. All that travel was definitely worth it! Hope to be back one day…
Beautiful home, great people, we love Italy

You have a very beautiful Villa in this beautiful village. The water was very cold in the swimming pool but children liked it. We adults have been jogging all over these beautiful hills. The castle of Porciano was so wonderful in the sunset. Ci siamo trovati molto bene da lei!
