The villa works great for a multi-generational get-together, as it is divided into 3 separate apartments. The grounds of the villa are gorgeous and well-kept and the pool is well-maintained. A car is necessary for any outings, as the villa is quite remote and only accessed by dirt roads. There are no restaurants, shopping or other amenities within walking distance, so a vehicle is necessary to enjoy the wonderful Chianti area. We only have good things to say about the housekeeper/keyholder, who assisted us in many aspects. All in all the villa lived fully up to our expectations and more.
