The home is ancient and up to date. The owners are very nice and accommodating. The pictures don't do the home and location justice. One of the most picturesque locations in Italy. We traveled all over and this is the nicest place we stayed. Much better than the Hilton in Venice. If you cook you should be prepared for the spartan conveniences no microwave, no coffeemaker, and only a few pots and pans. We only had breakfast and a 2 dinners there so it was not a big deal for us. You should note that there are only a few restaurants locally and you can drive to Florence in 20 minutes. There are plenty of dining locations there. It truly is a gem and would recommend it to everyone.
