Chaque petite famille avait son propre espace. Chambres spacieuses. Salles de bain nombreuses ce qui a été fort appreciable. Nous avons pu apercevoir des animaux chaque jour : chevreuils, biches, renards... Accueil très sympathique de la part d'Élisa qui faisait l'effort de nous parler en français. Nous avons aussi fait une dégustation de vin dans le domaine et elle nous a très bien conseillés. Un seul défaut pour la maison : c'est un peu sombre. A conseiller surtout que la villa est très bien située pour visiter la Toscane qui est une région remplie de merveilles.

I am convinced it has the most beautiful views in Tuscany. The property is lovely, beautifully maintained, surrounded by lush greenery and a perfectly situated infinity pool. "The Barn" is in a separate, stand alone building at the end of the villas and offers more outdoor space, privacy, and sunrise and sunset views. Driving in Tuscany is not for the faint of heart, but for many, well worth the effort and the only way to see it. Each of the villas I have stayed in is nicely appointed and the location is perfect for exploring Siena, Florence, and all of the Chianti region. You can even go farther afield to parts of Umbria and the Cinque Terra with Tuscany as your base. I cannot recommend Le Bagnaie and The Barn, in particular, more highly. You, too, will keep coming back ... or want to!
