We rented this villa for a week in July 2012, and had a wonderful stay. There is really nothing to point your finger at. From home we communicated efficiently via email with the owners and when we arrived we were welcomed by Sergio who took good care of us during the stay; gave an introduction to the facilities of the villa and answered our request for advice concerning shopping, dining, sightseeing etc. Our arrival was during the day of the Casentino rally, which is right in front of the villa. Sergio made sure we arrived before the road was closed and gave us the opportunity to watch this spectacular event. We were three families there and ended up spending the entirely week around the pool (weather was perfect). The view from the pool area is stunning. After sunset, we enjoyed the evenings outside with candle lights on the table. The house itself is spacious and well refurbished; it is really what we think of as a typical Tuscan Villa. About 2 miles from the Villa you will find the village of Talla, this has all you need: grocery, pizzeria and a coffee bar. We would definitely recommend this place for a quiet vacation in Tuscany.
