What a wonderful place to stay! Easy to get to many citiies, the bus to Florence worked well and was so close to the location. We would travel during the day and then spend time at the pool and relax. The views were amazing! The apartment was well equipped with everything we needed, very spacious and very clean. We slept well in the comfortable beds. The staff was very helpful and nice. I did laundry one day and it was easy to do and convenient. The castle is amazing, beautiful and one of our favorite things about the trip. I would suggest it to anyone, including families with children that want to be in the tuscany area, great views and also away from the crowds. A small town is just down the hill with a bus stop, stores, coffee, etc. We loved our stay!
