We can wholeheartedly and unreservedly recommend this villa and the owner. We cannot fault it. From booking to leaving was a pleasurable experience, any queries were quickly addressed. There is ample room and more for a large family gathering that catered well for all ages from 1 to 70+. The facilities are superb ranging from a bread/pizza oven in the kitchen to games and activities around the pool including a table tennis table. There are extensive grounds to walk in and enjoy. Each day the swimming pool was cleaned early along with the patio areas. We loved being able to pick fresh figs and herbs each day though sadly we were a little early for pomegranates. We were surprised by the owner delivering fresh pastries one morning as well as some bottles of delicious local wine. The area is lovely and the only slight disappointment was that there was no bakery or village store within walking distance.
Lovely secluded farmhouse in a scenic setting. Agro-tourism. Very nice, hospitable family. Facilities good - but don’t plan to run a business on the WiFi. A safe environment for the kids. The pool is refreshing. Lots of wildlife seen in immediate area from boar to deer to wild tortoise. If going in Summer insect repellent and plug ins are highly recommended. Central location for a days drive out to Pisa, Sienna or Florence or the beach. We had a great two weeks there with the kids and can highly recommend.
Local villages - Ribolla: Cappuccino at the bakery at far end of town (just past T junction) - btw one can dump rubbish in a skip nearby. Fruit and veg shop great and there is a supermarket (street market Tuesday). Castellaccia : very small but has a great friendly little restaurant ‘Osteria Borgo Pesca’ specialising in authenticate simple Tuscan cuisine. Popular with the locals.
