The villa was clean and quite large inside. The hot water in the lower bedroom did not work and office clerk was notified but nothing was done to fix it. Some of the outlets in the kitchen didn't work so we had to find ones that would so we could plug in the microwave and toaster. Plugs wouldn't go into the outlets. Power got turned off the day we left so glad we didn't have to deal with that, the poor folks staying who did. Now that I am more familiar with the area I probably would have stayed a little closer to Florence, but the location was perfect if one wanted to see Siena, Cortona etc.
Nous avons passé une excellent séjour à la Villa La Selva! Nous avons été bien reçu et avons beaucoup apprécié la visite guidée de la propriété et du vignoble. La piscine et le terrain de tennis ont aussi bien aidé à notre détente. Très bien située dans la campagne du Chianti. Merci
