I would recommend this property to anyone ... friend or relative, that would love a perfect getaway. Lilliana, Enzo and their sons were just wonderful to speak with and would do anything to please. The Villa is outside a typical Italian town were you can meander, buy your household food, eat with the locals or go out for a typical Italian dinner. The Villa is on a wonderful secluded road ( with a gate) , on a hill overlooking an enormous grove . You can hear some sounds of civilization, but see no one . You can relax on the enormous patio which surrounds the villa on 3 sides and look out for miles and miles. The inside of the villa is a home-away-from- home. It is warm, cozy and has everything you would need at your fingertips. From this location you can get in your car and go visit all the wonderful historic places within an hour or so- depending on how long you spend gazing at the countryside along the way, and then return home to sit on the veranda with a glass of wind and watch the sunset. When you leave here ... and you really are not going to want to, you will feel that you have just left PARADISE !

We spent a good deal of our time relaxing by the pool. My husband a keen cyclist spent his mornings cycling L'Eroica and Strade Bianche (white roads). There are plenty of pretty little towns to visit not to mention only half an hour to Siena. We received a very warm welcome from our host Franco who gave us lots of advise and when we had a little hiccup he was very quick to respond. The villa had all we wanted and was clean and spacious. We hope to return one day.
