The spectacular views, the rustic Barn, the food, the wine, the people, and of course Serena made it unforgettable. We hope to make the visit to Tuscany and The Barn a new Thanksgiving tradition. The property was exactly as described on the website and viewed in the pictures. It was very clean and well maintained. The house had everything you needed from pots and pans to umbrellas, espresso maker, tea kettle, spices even sporting equipment. There's even thyme and rosemary growing around the property. I highly recommend this property to anyone looking to make unforgettable memories with friends and family. Oh, one more plus, each bedroom has its own bathroom!

The design & layout of the property is such a great use of the space, the villa was really well equipped, the bed is very comfortable & all linen etc is as anyone would need & the spec of the property is very high. The view from the terrace is actually better than photos can show. The little hamlet in which it stands has been beautifully restored to be an excellent isolated place but near other properties. The pool was great - especially as there were not many properties occupied when we were there, in September - and Roberto, who welcomed us on arrival & checked on us occasionally through the week, was most helpful & charming. As throughout the whole booking & staying process, was Colm, the owner - even though he was actually in Dublin. It is a perfect base for what is perfect Tuscan scenery & tourist spots within an hour or so- but we enjoyed the walking too. We found the Via Francigena, which we had no idea of until we arrived. What a lovely stretch it is there between Gambassi Terme & San Gimignano. A perfect week. Many thanks. Phil

The new town is nearby and well equipped with more shops and restaurants and is a good base for exploring Tuscany. The property description is accurate. It was very clean and well equipped. There are steps within the apartment and to the nearby free car park but you can park outside for unloading. There is a convenient balcony outside the kitchen for dining and a sun terrace below that with comfy chairs for relaxing. The owners are very friendly and on hand in the premises during the week if any help is required. We would recommend this apartment to any reasonably active couples.
