Peace and tranquility
We relaxed immediately . Our hosts explained the house well and then left us to enjoy our surroundings. The house was well equipped and with very comfortable beds. The BBQ area by the pool was rustic but a great place to sit read eat and enjoy a glass of wine.
Day excursions were easy from the house with its great location and with the train station only 5minutes away we didn't always have to take the car.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and leave feeling relaxed.
A great Tuscan break
We recently visited Tuscany and had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay at this villa. Its location made it ideal for site seeing, with the local town having a train station made Florence and Rome easy to visit too. The house, pool and garden were all well cared for by the owners who live on site. They were very discreet and made us very welcome. The possibility of meals by the owner was also a great option we utilised. We would very happily return to this villa.
Enjoying our family time together in Tuscany
We had a lovely stay here and, thanks too to Jonti for her kindness in helping us with our plans (by the wway she is not just a good chef - but a GREAT chef!).
A very lovely setting, surrounded by fields of wheat? corn and of course sunflowers . heaven!
Although Jonti has the ground floor apartment here, we had the full run of the gardens and the pool for ourselves. The villa accurately described and we would be happy to return again.
Lovely setting, nice property but not as private as we would have liked.
Lovely setting in the valley. Accommodation is of a good standard. Beautiful towns and villages are within easy reach for exploring. For us the fact that the family live below would prevent us from returning as we really value our privacy on holiday and their home is right next to the pool and garden. Our children went down to the pool one day after lunch to find one of the family using the pool. They did get straight out but we had assumed that 'Private pool' meant just that. The other niggle was that we did not have access to a washing machine which is listed as a facility on the website.
