It was definitely 5 star accommodation set in amazing, well kept grounds. The pool was crystal clear and was the perfect way to cool down in the hot Tuscan sun. The villa itself was beautiful and spacious, with plenty of room to relax. There was also a number of pleasant seating areas in and around the villa where we could enjoy a meal together. Adriano the caretaker was always polite and friendly and made us feel very welcome. The location of the villa made it very easy to travel out to numerous attractions including Pisa, Vinci and Florence. I highly recommend this villa as your perfect location to explore and relax in Tuscany. Rupi
