When we arrived and opened the front door we were so impressed with the ambiance and warmth of the great room with the gorgeous large floor tile and the country style furniture. The view from the balcony through the french doors was beautiful. The owners hadn't forgotten a thing to make our stay enjoyable. The kitchen was lovely and well equipped complete with dishwasher. We had plenty of seating for meals. There were laundry facilities and a media room with a vast assortment of dvds. Several of the bedrooms had balconies with lovely views. The bathrooms were equipped with everything we needed. They had written directions for everything inside the villa. There were umbrellas, maps and travel books. They thought of everything and to top it off, it is a convenient location, close to the rail station and many charming places in Tuscany.
