The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. Exterior spaces are inviting and provide great venues for conversation, food, and wine. The owners and overseers are very friendly, generous, and helpful. All in all, it was one of our best vacations sites ever.

Arrival and departure arrangements worked well. Everything was spotlessly clean on our arrival. Enjoyed Monica's meal. Kitchen however was cramped when catering for 7 people. Some noise on weekend evenings from nearby outside bar. Otherwise reasonably quiet despite proximity to the village and the main access roads.

The pool was a perfect size for my 17, 12 & 10 year olds, myself and my wife to play "catch", to swim and to dive into and the depth was great (my 12 yr old was able to walk the full length). The sun loungers were comfy but the location, based on top of a hill within the Tuscan HIlls was so picture perfect, we must have taken one hundred pictures. The pool was also lit, so night time games were also enjoyed. Even tho the pool is right next to the house, the house also has a fantastic courtyard, which allowed us to also opt to sunbathe right next to the kitchen (cool drinks, ice cream and the odd beer),,! Wifi in the house was good (we are a mobile /social media hungry family), TV had a number of sports channels and the Playstation came in handy (especially to play DVD movies). The kitchen was very well equiped, the bedrooms were huge but for us, the table tennis table, the football table, swing ball, boxing bag and...the indoor Archery in the massive games room were brilliant...! We loved the peace, we loved the serenity and we found lots of countryside walks and nature around. The villa was perfect to visit Montalicino (15mins in the car) a beautiful town (with a great supermarket), but we also went to Siena (an hour) and indeed Florence (2hrs),a great base in Tuscany. Would I recommend renting this villa,,,only one answer,,,,,Yes..,!
