Everything about the villa was perfect! Our family of 14 had more than enough room and enjoyed it very much. The pool was incredible on the hot days and the view just can't be beat! The rooms were spacious and each had its own bath which was very much appreciated by all. Daniela was waiting for us when we arrived and walked us through the house. She was awesome! I can't think of a single thing that we didn't like. The location of the villa made day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Cinque Terre, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, and the Chianti Valley very easy. The rental process went very smoothly. All my questions (sorry about asking so many!) were answered promptly and patiently. Thank you Daniela and everyone at VacaVilla for providing my family with a perfect vacation! I would definitely recommend Villa il Guercina to anyone looking for an enjoyable, peaceful, roomy place to stay in a great location in Tuscany.
