                                                                                                This place is absolutely amazing. As you walk up the garden path you are surrounded by beautiful flowers, and their scent, and then stunned by the mountainous scenery. The villa is what I would class as 'typically Italian', with tall ceilings, large airy windows, and all the furnishings you would have in your own home. The facilities were exactly as described, was immaculately clean and very well maintained. We went in May, and the weather was perfect, hot but not too hot. The children loved the place, especially the swimming pool, and the large garden area. One of the most magical things for me was when the sun began to set, and the mountains take on this pink glow, and the fireflies come out. It's definitely not something you can get at home. The owner was fantastic. Any questions we had about local amenities, she was able to answer, and promptly, and she was a delight to deal with. The local facilities were also fine, and you're not too far from Pisa or Florence when it comes to venturing out a bit further. All possible to visit as a day trip. I would definitely recommend this property to my friends and family, and am considering returning again.

We asked to prolong our stay in this place as we liked it so much. There was enough space for 2 families, 9 persons in total. Both adult and kids liked the villa very much. Drive to the villa was a bit challenging, but when we used to it, it was OK even with our big SUV. We will definitely return to the same place in the future.

We sailed to the 'Golfo dei poeti' with skipper Andrea and hostess Silvia, who let us feel very much 'at home', and pointed out many beautiful places. We also enjoyed a wonderful lunch completed wit a birthday cake, and champagne. It was a day that we really want to do again soon!!!!!
