The unit shares a large property with six other units. But, it is set up so that you are not aware that anyone else is there. (But, we did spend some pleasant time with our "neighbors".) It sits up on a hill top with stunning views. Not right in town but still conveniently located.
The unit is very spacious, very comfortable and well-equipped. We had everything we needed. Would definitely stay again.
Beautiful property in a fairy tale location
The house is wonderful and in perfect shape. Around are only hills and vineyards: a breathtaking landscape. We enjoyed the garden and the big swimming pool very much. We could pick our own vegetables (which were super fresh and delicious) from the garden and we were even invited to a winetasting by Ian, one of our lovely neighbours, who owns a small vinyard. Finally, the house is perfectly located, close to
Florence and all the main places of interests, such as Siena and San Gimignano. A fantastic vacation!
P.S.: if you go, make sure to book Serena to cook you dinner for a night. One of the best Italian meals I have ever eaten. And I am Italian!
Tuscan Top Spot
Great location, superb views, central position for travel to anywhere in Tuscany.
Good food, some great restaurants and of course 'The Place' to sample the local wines.
Beautiful spot with fantastic amenities
The property is in an idyllic location. It has a lovely garden to relax in and the swimming pool and tennis court are a real plus. It is well positioned for restaurants and sight seeing (a short drive away) but in a peaceful and rural location with amazing views.
The house is well maintained and has everything you might need.
A very relaxing place to stay.
A great place to relax and explore Tuscany
My family and I spent one week at the property and we all had a great time. We relaxed on some days in the lovely garden and in the huge pool, which the kids enjoyed very much. On other days we travelled to nearby historic towns and local vineyards, making use of the property's ideal location! The regional food was of course great, but even better was the meal cooked for us in house.
We found the property charming, with stunning views, and the amenities generally very good. There is also a community garden which helped us out on occasion.
A little piece of heaven on earth
We had a wonderful holiday in Tuscany. Mainly sightseeing but also some shopping and wine tasting. Best was being able to relax in the confines of Le Bagnaie, this small hilltop complex of 8 villas is a couple of Kms off the main road in more or less perfect isolation. Pool was fantastic - a great size and only a handful of fellow residents in sight. Also, good tennis court and boules.
We made use of a local contact for a full blown Tuscan dining evening and would thoroughly recommend that to anyone.
The villa/farmhouse was clean, tidy and friendly with all the essentials. Some may see it as a problem that there is no TV - not in our case. My personal lizard count was above 30 and the wandering cat just added a lovely slice of something to the experience.
Its Tuscany in July so you have to expect mosquitos and other bitey things so be prepared for that. My only criticism, and its a personal thing I guess, is that the beds were quite hard.
Thank you for your lovely review. We have noted your comment about the beds and have since bought a mattress topper for the double bed in the master bedroom which will hopefully soften this new mattress.
