Fantastic property, Perfect hosts

5 of 5
From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Simona and Roberto we're the perfect hosts. The vine yard is in the perfect location to explore Florance and rest of Tuscany. The apparent we stayed in was finished to a very high standard with a real attention to detail. The views from the garden are some of the best in the area. My wife and I would highly recommend this property . Simona and Roberto could not have been more helpful from telling the best ways to visit Florance to helping us to change a tyre on the car when we had a puncture. If you visit this area you can't go wrong staying here.
