The villa was spotless with a modern well stocked kitchen and beautiful modern bathrooms with counter space. The views were exceptional, the outdoor spaces were comfortable and well landscaped and we were fortunate to be there when everything was in full bloom. Our hostess Caterina could not have been more accommodating and made us a delicious dinner one evening. Truly a week to remember. One minor downside was no clothes dryer.

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
