"What an unforgettable holiday at Villa Radicata! The villa is very comfortable and delightfully cosy, surrounded by stunning scenery and with a beautiful lake view. Especially enjoyed swimming in the large pool and dining out 'al fresco' under the pergola."
“Fantastic location, amazing food, the best break I have had since becoming a mum."
Sara Niven and Honesty Dorset

“To Rita and all other warm and generous Italians who have made our stay in Tuscany a delight. It almost made it so easy with a 3 month baby. The combination of baby play and mummy activities worked so well"

" Thank you for an amazing week at villa Radicata. Your hospitality has been amazing and your house is so beautiful. I adored the views and the fresh air It was a real home from home and we hope to return."
The Lashmeres, London
"Would not have thought a holiday with a 13month baby would be relaxing but it was. It was a real treat to have time with Ossian and time to myself to do daily yoga and cooking lessons. I loved the views, the garden, the pool, the relaxed pace, the wine. The house is great and would love to return."
Isabel Choat and Ossian
"An Amazing spot, so picturesque, Hospitality was typical Italian and the fresh air wonderful. Thank you Rita and Alessia"
"A wonderful week in a lovely surrounding. Really loved exercising watching the top of the house with all that light."
Lucia and Emilia, Jersey
"A special week with my son at a very special place. Thank you Rita for your hospitality and wonderful food. The fresh air has been a welcome change from London"
I loved the house, the garden and the views but what makes this holiday is the people. Rita has created a true home from home experience, she is so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. Marina our fitness instructor is inspirational and the 4 exercise classes were varied, fun but still tough! Fernanda our babysitter was so so good with the babies, although she didn't get much of a look in with my mum in residence! The other mums were so friendly and the atmosphere completely relaxed. Both mum and I were sad to leave and felt as if we had been on holiday with friends - we would definitely love to return to Rita and Villa Radicata.
