Property was beautiful. Very restful 3 days. If you want to experience staying in a piece of history and beauty this is the place. Make sure when you book during the summer months you request an apartment with a/c. We did and were very grateful since it was 96 degrees while we were there.
Emplacement idéal dans la campagne toscane à seulement 30 mn en voiture de Florence et à distance facile de San Gimignano, Sienne, Pise. Un bar et une petite restauration de bonne qualité, une piscine très agréable. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour.
