Perfect

5 of 5
This villa is everything I hoped it would be. Surrounded by lavender, rosemary, and rolling hills, it is the perfect Tuscany hideaway. The inside is exactly as pictured and very clean. The owners are exceptional- very friendly and very helpful. My only regret is that we didn't stay long enough to spend more time relaxing at the villa. Give yourself at least a week here, as there is much to see, and you'll want time to just sit and take in the view or enjoy a meal on the beautiful patio.

Everything was ok! We've made a lot of visits around Radda and that was amazing to discover Tuscany ! The villa was just like the pictures and the children were very happy ! Finally, we bought some wine near the house, very good ! Petra is very sweet and she can answer at all the questions, even in a bad english ;-) ! Thank you very much! Benedicte
