Very beautiful house in a great setting with fabulous hosts. The house was very well maintained and clean. The hosts were always there to help and provided for all our needs. The pool area and sitting spaces were great and the location was good - less to see than other spots in Tuscany - and very picturesque. This was a highly relaxing spot to be. Only issues were a small kitchen that did not really work for a large group.
Me and my family stayed in this house for a couple of weeks which turned out to be the most incredible of our life. Everything was great, seemed to be in a country dream. There’s nothing we haven’t appreciated about the Villa, it was so calm, silent and relaxing we forgot to be just miles and miles away from home. This Villa is absolutely amazing, it offers the chance to relax near the pool, immersed in the verdant country side surrounding or to enjoy some time with your family if you like tennis (as there’s a private pitch also). Everything like we expected it to be and even better!
