Villa Bongiove was the ideal location for our holiday with two of our grown up children, and their families (nine of us in total). The location was very quiet, but near enough amenities if needeed- we bought croissants for breakfast each day from the local village shop about 1.5 miles away.
The villa itself had extensive accomodation which was well suited to three separate families. There was everything we could have wanted and anything extra we needed was always supplied promptly including the owner's own olive oil! Delicious. The only slight disadvantage was lack of wi fi which meant ipads did not work!
The grounds are wonderful and very very extensive including an olive grove, formal areas and open fields. The two eating areas and loggia allowed for much al fresco dining either in or out of the shade according to weather. The small grandchildren loved running round and just exploring. The large pool was well equipped with loungers etc just as shown in the photos, and was a slight distance from the house which was good when small children were running around, but not so far that it was an inconvenience. The dogs , which were mentioned in another review, were well behaved and an assett rather than the reverse
The owner could not have been more welcoming and was always a ready source of local information and advice. The week disappeared without feeling the need to go far - we visted Florence and Greve- but we had been to the area in general before. We were just looking for the location for a relaxing family holiday and this was perfect.
