The property belongs to the family since the 19th Century. It was the summer home and around there is a working farming estate. All the farming estate is located in a very quite area away from main road. We start renting the property for holidays since 1979 and we still have from that time clients who come every years. We make our best for helping people to have a great time so they will come back.

This property is very close to the main Tuscan town and besides offers the quietness of a rural place.

Quite and relax joined with cultural visits are the main purpose for staying in Villa Iolanda.
