    "Rented the entire villa with 17 people and it was fabulous - old world style, gorgeous grounds, beautiful pool, gracious hosts, Liliana and Dante, the sister and brother team who pull everything together. Had a lovely wedding on the grounds and dinner near the pool, no better place to have a wedding then here overlooking the town of Arezzo. It pulls you back, time and time again with such great memories of a fantastic vacation."

    "It seems like forever that our party of 17 spent at the villa; it is like a memory that cannot be erased. The beauty of the villa and its grounds were the perfect wedding site; and the keepers of the villa, Liliana and her brother, Dante, were the extreme hosts, making us all feel like family. I hope someday soon we can once again travel to Tuscany to enjoy the villa, Liliana and Dante and Arezzo with all its beauty and friendliness."

    "We had the most wonderful wedding and holiday here at the end of May. The location is perfect, you have complete privacy and also close enough for an easy walk into the beautiful town of Arezzo. The villa is stunning with traditional Tuscan style and charm. It is beautifully clean and very well equipped throughout, you can really feel that Liliana and Dante have put much love and attention into making it a truly special place. As well as a fabulous holiday Liliana supported us with every detail of planning the wedding she made the whole thing so easy we could not recommend her services highly enough. We also took part in a cooking class with Fabrizio which was excellent, we really enjoyed learning some more about local food and wines. All round an incredible experience. We will be back again, no doubt!"

    "I cannot say enough about our wonderful two weeks at Villa Rossi Mattei and the wonderful owners Lilliana and her brother Dante. We were 16 people and occupied the entire Villa. Lilliana graciously worked with me over the months prior to our arrival regarding special requests i.e. stocking the villa with beer/alcohol and planning a Tuscan dinner prepared by their chef the night of our arrival (plus two breakfasts). The food was delicious and a perfect way to start our vacation.Lilliana helped us call taxis, recommended and booked restaurant reservations and responded helpfully to our many questions. The Villa itself made it a perfect Tuscan experience. The view breathtaking. Each had their own room and bathroom with sitting area and kitchen. The communal gathering area plus the pool and outside kitchen gave all the perfect balance of group gathering space and privacy. Arezzo is the perfect central location to see Tuscany. Although you need a car, the proximity to the train Is a plus. We went by train to Florence and Rome. One of the bonuses to the trip was the friendship we developed with Lilliana. We left our hearts in Tuscany at Villa Rossi Mattei."

    "Villa Rossi-Mattei was our home base for a 2 week Tuscan vacation/adventure. Our group of 16 friends had a truly memorable visit. The villa had a combination of rooms and small apartments that gave everyone some privacy. The rooms were spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable. The communal areas were large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably. Built into a hillside, the 4 level villa had amazing views, gardens and a lovely pool with outdoor showers.Liliana, the proprietor, was a warm, friendly and very helpful hostess. We shopped at the nearby grocery store, a giant, well stocked, well priced 5 minute drive away. Don't miss the Saturday fresh market, right down the street from the villa. The villa is also close to downtown and the historical center. Arezzo, a city of 80,000 people, is located about an hour outside of Florence, We found the location a great stepping off point for many day trips. We easily travelled to Cortona, Pienza, Siena and even over to the Adriatic.I would highly recommend a smart phone for directions, as the routes are not clearly marked. The trains (station a 10 minute or 10 Euro taxi) get you anywhere. We took an express train to Rome, and got there in an hour. Don't forget to validate your ticket at the station before getting on! Overall, I cannot say enough about this lovely place. It felt like home. Get your friends and family together and go! As an aside, Liliana is a wedding planner and I can only imagine that she would be a spectacular one. Her love of Tuscany and for the people she hosts shines through her entire being."

    "My beautiful wife and I got married here in August and I must say it was like a dream. Liliana and Dante were brilliant and very helpful. Fabrizio is an amazing chef and catered our wedding to perfection. The villa itself is stunning, the views, the gardens, the pool, the rooms, all exceptional and pictures do not do them justice. Will definitely be going back here in the future!"
