The villa was exactly what we were expecting. San Donato in Perano is a lovely place in Chianti and the villa is beautiful, surrounded by vineyards. Privacy was an important aspect to this villa. The view from the pool area was amazing as well as the sunsets from the other side of the buildings. The closest little town, Gaiole in Chianti, was very helpful for grocery shopping and restaurants. The stay in Cavalcanti villa was truly an unforgettable experience.
