We visited this hostel in August 2011 and I wasnt going to write a review but to be honest I am still quite gutted about the experience so thought I would finally share.

Me and two friends stumbled upon this incredible villa in Tuscany trying to pursue our dream of sleeping in an old vineyard under the Tuscan sun. It delivered beyond expectation. The architecture is classically Tuscan and reflects the villa's 600 years. The views and tranquility are incredible. Guido (the owner) prepares some of the best authentic Italian meals I encountered...

This hostel is up on a mountain above Pisa and is a place to relax not travel out from. They pick you up in Santa Maria N. Florence train station and drive you 1 hr into the agricultural areas. The owner's family has acres and acres of olive groves , spectacular gardens, and best of all a 3 star pool,...

We stayed in a private en-suite - it was like a hotel suite with separate lounge, bedroom, kitchen and roof terrace. Lovely swimming pool, great location, great rates. Can't fault it in any way. A real gem

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Fattoria di Villa Rossa is situated in the hills of Montalbano, with incomparable views of the valley below, close to Florence, Livorno, Pisa, Montecatini and Pistoia. Just 7 kilometres down the road you can find Vinci, home town of the great Leonardo. Set in the middle of 65 hectares of olive groves and woods, Villa Rossa is a self-contained hamlet, with "cottages" of varying sizes, surrounding the main villa. Each "cottage" has been completely restored. ... more   less

“WiFi is only available in the main house. FYI: the WiFi password is EXTREMELY long (picture included). The Villa that I was staying in, the shower is above the toilet (picture included). Yep, leave the TP outside in the kitchen. It will get wet while you shower.”
