Stunning views, great facilities and in a beautiful location

5 of 5
We had a superb holiday at Seccarille. The villa is in a beautiful part of north Tuscany with breathtaking views across the forested hills. The villa has a large pool, which everyone loved, with beautiful, immaculately-kept terraces and garden around it. We also made daily use of the villa's tennis court, one of Seccarille's big attractions. Lunches and dinners on the villa's first floor terrace were always magical. Kitchen facilities are great and the villa has everything you need. A gardener keeps everything looking perfect and Jeremy, the friendly local manager, deals with any problems or questions instantly. The bedrooms/bathrooms are a touch dated, but we spent so little time indoors that it did not really matter. Showers are high-pressure, which we thought was the most important thing. There are fantastic walking trails through the hills and it is only a short drive to Anghiari, a delightful walled Tuscan city which has very good restaurants. A perfect all-round holiday. We have rented many villas in Tuscany over the years and this is one we definitely want to go back to. Mark W
