My husband rented Villa Le Botti for my 60th birthday celebration. Our party consisted of 8 adults (4 couples). I had painted a picture in mind of what I expected to find in such an experience and let me tell you that Villa Le Botti exceeded my expectations. Emilio, the property manager, was there to great us when we arrived, helped with luggage, made sure we were settled and happy with the place. The villa was immaculantly clean. You walk into a foyer with a grand piano and couches. To the back of this is a large, well equiped kitchen with the laundry room off of it. To the right of the foyer is a large cozy living room and to the back of this is a table that seats 18 people comfortably. Upstairs there is a large foyer with 2 bedrooms to the left and 3 to the right. All bedrooms have large wardrobe closets and their own appointed full bathrooms. You cannot open a window without having a beautiful country side view of vineyards and olive trees. On the 3rd floor is a crows nest with panoramic windows for viewing the countryside, reading a book, just relaxing. Between the main villa and the cottage (has 2 extra rooms you can rent) there is a large patio area with tables/chairs. We spent a lot time here at night listening to music, drinking wine, enjoying each others company. About 50 feet from the villa is the large pool. From its deck there is an amazing view of all the rolling country sides and beautiful sunsets. The most wonderful thing that happened to us in Tuscany, was finding Laura as our chef. Emilio recommended her. She cooked for us the weekend we arrived and it was so mouth watering that we asked her to come back on the last night we were there. It was such a special experience having her cook for us. We wanted to bring Laura home with us! Believe me she is wonderful and if you visit this villa you must ask for her. We visited Siena, San Gimignano, Florence, Monteriggioni, and Greve on day trips. Greve has an amazing wine tasting room with 110 Italian wines represented. There is a town called Lamole a short ways from Greve with a beautiful restuarant on top of the hill overlooking all of Tuscany with amazing sunsets. Had my birthday dinner here. Montesportolli is the closet biggest town to the villa and it is has most of what you will need. Drop by the Castello Sonnino Winery and you will not be disappointed. We have been to Italy before - but not like this. It was a trip of a life time! Thank you Marco & Gloria for sharing it with us.
