We stayed at Le Argille to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary with our children, their spouses and our grandchildren. There were 12 of us - six adults and six children ranging in age from almost 2 to almost 12 years.
The villa is beautifully located amongst olive groves with a commanding and lovely view of the surrounding countryside. While quiet and secluded, It is very convenient to Florence, Sienna and other hill towns.
We used both the villa and the guest house and were extremely comfortable. The property has been beautifully restored with every modern convenience while still retaining its charm and original character. The facilities include a large, wonderful infinity pool and hot tub, which was used and appreciated by us (especially the kids) after a day of sightseeing. The children also loved the soccer field and the wonderful tree house on the property. There is air-conditioning, a washer-dryer in the villa and another in the guest house. This property is ideal for families but would be equally wonderful for 3 -4 couples. The entire property was well maintained, immaculate and comfortable.
We enjoyed having drinks and dinner (prepared by the resident caretaker/cook), at the outdoor kitchen/ dining area and pavilion. (The dinners and breakfasts are at an additional, but very reasonable cost and were wonderful.)
The agent for the property was welcoming and extremely helpful. She made sure that all was perfect. The caretaker/cook made us so comfortable and prepared meals that everyone loved. She was indispensable.
The only problem with staying at Le Argille is that we had to leave - no one wanted to.
