What a fantastic villa!! Take a steep drive up an unsealed stoned track and arrive at this little gem of a property. Totally secluded but only 3 mins drive from San Gimignano, 4 mins drive from Poggibonssi PAM supermarket and if you drive the 3km of the unsealed track before turning up the hill, you'll fine a great organic winery with amazing views and equally amazing wines to sample for a small fee (12 euros ea with local cheese, breads and chutneys - and water to cleanse the palate) - and you'll probably be the only ones there! The villa was very clean, has all of the tools required for cooking lovely food, great outdoor seating, immaculate gardens and the pool was cleaned daily whilst you awoke in the mornings and what a great pool.
You can catch the train from Poggibonsi to Florence - just remember to validate your ticket PRIOR to getting on the train - it's the little box on the train station wall that looks like a hand sanitising dispenser.... otherwise it's a 60 euro fine per ticket!!
This was our 2nd stay in two separate villas in Tuscany, both have been exceptional - this one wins it on location and idyllic setting. It comfortably sleeps 6 people in 3 rooms - past this it's a sofa bed in the lounge.
We stayed here for the last 5 days of our holiday - it was lovely and peaceful but close to a Chianti village with shop, bar and restaurant which was all we needed. It would have been even much better if the weather had been kind but unfortunately we chose the wrong time to visit.
Just a couple of niggles - there were only 2 easy chairs to sit and relax on indoors and due to weather we would have appreciated one each!! Also we were surprised to pay 30 euro tourist tax on top of the villa cost - not a lot but this could maybe be mentioned on the Homeaway website. - we did not have to pay this on the other property which was also booked through Homeaway.
Having said this the house had everything we neeeded, a beautiful upstairs terrace to sit and read plus a terrace outside the kitchen to eat breakfast when the sun was shining!!
Just one more problem we had which was probably our own fault but we arrived at the wrong Lecchi at first - not that far away but maybe again worth a mention on your website!!
