The pictures are nice but the villa itself has to be seen to be believed. We were 2 couples and we stayed in the 3 bedroom upstairs apartment and absolutely loved it. Less than a half hour from Sienna and about 1 hour from many popular destinations (San Gimignano, Montalcino, Montepulciano), we really had the time of our lives. We decided to take the italian cooking class with Enzo (the owner of the villa) and his 2 sons (Duccio and Max) and it was a night to remember. The sweetest people you can imagine and just mouth watering food and wine. They come to the villa, prepare their class, and then treat you to a 4 course meal of typical Tuscan cuisine. Definitely a highlight of our trip. Needless to say, we 100% recommend the villa. Romantic getaway, family vacation, travelling with friends, it's the perfect place to go. We were given a tour of the 2 bedroom apartment at the ground floor, equally stunning but we liked the fact that the upstairs had more than 1 bathroom. We left the villa with heavy hearts but I am certain that we will return one day. Can't wait!

The setting is incredible! We played, we relaxed, we went sightseeing, we drank local wine and had the time of our lives. The pool is huge and the pool area fantastic. The BBQ and kitchen are top notch as are all the rooms. Marina was very helpful both before we booked and afterwards. We could not have been happier and will definitely go back. Tough to beat to be honest!

Comfortable, fully applianced kitchen, beautiful scenery and so close to Siena - 10 minutes Italian driver; 20 min. American driver! We were there for 3 Septembers - 2014/15/16 that's how much we liked it. the host family were exceptionally kind and generous. Anyone who spends time there will be the better for it. We loved every minute.
