lovely villa for friends and family holidays

5 of 5
Our time here has been excellent with a great tennis court, swimming pool and villa. Great welcome from the housekeeper - despite him speaking no English - we were able to understand the basics! We would recommend going to Radda, Florence and Sienna with some amazing sights. Advise pre-booking some of the tickets for the museums in Florence so that you can avoid the queues. Do look at the great range of guide books in the drawers. There are some great restaurants in the area, one we especially liked was Malborghetto in Lecchi. Amazing views and a great house to be based from. Well maintained swimming pool and tennis court. Very relaxed time - fantastic time base to explore the area and also excellent base to chill. Rustic charm - next year they are looking at extending which sounds very exciting. Would love to come back some day. The Britton family

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
