A stunning home set in the most beautiful Tuscan countryside, comfortable & homely with everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The pool area is great & the fact that it's separated from the house by the garden is an added bonus with 2 young children. We enjoyed exploring the area with trips to Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona & the lake all in easy reach. A great family holiday & we very much hope to return!

The beautiful villa and surrounding gardens include an excellent sized pool making the facilities perfect for relaxing all day in the sun. Whilst it is about 1 hr and half drive from Pisa airport the villa is well placed for exploring both the Umbrian and Tuscan towns., We would definitely consider returning here again as one week was not enough!

We loved everything: location, views, pool, furniture, atmosphere. A holiday to remember, in a great villa at a very reasonable price. Went for dinner a few times to the restaurant run by the owners and loved it, not to be missed. Also Cortona, with its Medieval center, is just a short drive away. Cannot fault, all perfect. See you soon again!
