A beautiful property located in a quiet, vineyard setting. The villa itself has old-world charm, but is modern, clean and welcoming, with excellent quality throughout, and with a few "designer touches" here and there.
We really liked our genuine Tuscan villa and the property is quite spectacular,situated on a vineyard. Our villa was very spacious with two bedrooms , lots of living space, nicely furnished and with up-dated bathrooms. Biggest negative is the lack of air-condtioning . It was very hot during our stay and fans provided were not able to cool the villa enough for comfortable sleeping. Unfortunately, the windows do not have screens so opening them let the bugs invade.
We enjoyed the beautiful pool and even played bocci.
Patrick, the property manager is terrific - very knowledgeable about the area.
The location of the villa is ideal for day trips to all the wonderful hill towns in Tuscany and yet close enough to Florence and Siena.
