Nice authentic Tuscany experience as promised.
Our family just got back from a wonderful week in this Villa.
The property is as advertised: ideally situated in Tuscany for making small day trips to numerous worthwhile towns and sites, including a castle just a few minutes away.
The house is clean, equipped with essentials, and the pool is great way to relax after a days travels. Note that it's not heated so it's only warm in the summer months. I believe it was 68F (20C) when we arrived and 71F (21.7C) when we left.
Giada and her mother were wonderful hosts helping us get oriented and providing info on the area.
Restaurant options are limited in the area unless you go into Sienna.
Owner's Response: Dear Brian and family,
thank you for the nice review, we are happy that you and your family had a pleasant stay at the Villa and that you have taken advantage of the ideal location to enjoy the surroundings of Siena.
It was our pleasure to facilitate your stay in Tuscany, and give you all the tips to guide in your choices.
About the pool, the pool temperature this year has depended on the season of May and June 2013 rather rainy and cold more than the standard, in Italy and throughout Europe. The pool area is very sunny and normally our guests are swimming from May to October very willingly!
The first restaurants are at the village of Quercegrossa, 3 km from the house (one pizzeria,an osteria and one restaurant), otherwise (for example, but the choice is really wide) at the outskirts of Siena, in Via Fiorentina (5 km from the villa), there is a very good fish restaurant "Il Mestolo" renowned for its excellent quality. Or in Vagliali (15 minutes), two good restaurants with typical Tuscan recipes. Nearby, the castle of Monteriggioni, Castellina in Chianti and Lornano, and other villages with restaurants at 10-20 minutes from the house.
Best Wishes, Giada
