Family Tuscan experience

We stayed for 2 weeks in a Type B apartment (2 bedrooms). We stayed in the main house rather than one of the annexes and it was the right decision as the high ceilings in our particular apartment which was on the first floor, helped us cope with the heat. Not all the apartments have high ceilings such as this one, so worth enquiring first.

The pool is lovely, clean and there is a separate pool for younger children. The hosts really made us feel welcome. The surrounding garden is pretty with lots of tables, chairs and barbecues. There are swings and boules for the kids to entertain themselves.

In terms of evening entertainment, there was always something going on either in Guadistallo itself, which is a charming small town, or within the grounds of the villa such as wine tasting, a communcal barbecue and on one evening a concert provided by the local police band with the music from 'La Traviata'.

Kitchen is well equipped although potential guests should note there is no oven in the properties, which would have been beneficial. There is also one coin operated washing machine on site at 5 Euros for one wash, so be prepared not to do alot of washing!

Villa is in an excellent location for trips out to cities such as Pisa and Volterra. We went to Elba from Piombino as foot passengers on the ferry for the day, which was a great trip. San Gimignano and Siena are about 1 - 2 hours away if you wish to travel further afield. But there is no direct motorway, so prepare for windy roads on route.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and the villa, although basic, was clean and comfortable.

Would recommend to other families.

There is internet avallability. The swimming pool and garden are large, clean and very impressive.
The family,who owens the place, showed a lot of hospitality.
