Villa Elisa is far more beautiful than these pictures suggest - seriously, they really undersell just how lovely it is! It is spacious, pretty and has great amenities. The pool area and balconies are a nice touch - the perfect places to relax. The views across the Tuscan countryside are also incredible and Elisa was a joy to work with in organising details of our stay. The property is in a quiet spot, a five minute walk from the town of Scarperia, which has a supermarket, pharmacy, some little attractions, shops and restaurants. Not the most rocking town in the world but pretty and historic. It is a great base for exploring Tuscany and is close to the famous race tracks of Mugello, the famous Medici Villa Demidoff (now a park), Lake Bilancino and the Barberino Designer Outlet.
I will say, however, that you are in the Tuscan countryside so you should expect bugs and my father and I were eaten alive by mosquitoes. This is not the fault of the owners but something you should definitely prepare for - bring repellent and antihistamines. Also, there aren't a lot of sockets that can handle laptops or electrical items bigger than lamps or phone chargers, this is a little irritating but a minor complaint within the grand scheme of how lovely this villa is.
