The challenging drive 'up the hill' is worth it! An ideal location and genuine Tuscan experience for us, especially when sandwiched between stays in the equally stunning San Gimigagno and Florence. Although there is plenty of space inside the house - especially perhaps in the 3 main bedrooms - we especially enjoyed the extensive outside spaces that included a lovely pool area. Our excellent hosts Francesca and Eugene were interesting, friendly and very helpful. We like to think we have made some new friends.

The villa was very clean and had comfy sofas and beds. It was very well equipped including a well-stocked bookcase which we made great use of. The beautiful pool (cleaned very day) was a very welcome retreat on hot days. From the villa there are some lovely walks round-about - through the olive groves and vineyards. The location was ideal as it was very easy to get to towns and cities in that part of Tuscany (Castiglion, Arezzo, Cortona, Montepulciano). We also made use of the rail network, taking a train to Arezzo from Castiglion (the parking is free at the train station). We had a wonderful trip to Lake Trasimeno - the lake is very clear and warm so perfect for swimming and it is not very deep near the edges. If you have small children there are beach areas around some parts of the lake but otherwise you can go into the lake from several sites. Great wine and olive oil from Santo Stefano which is only a few miles from the villa. Several supermarkets in Castiglion which are open on a Sunday too. Barbara was a wonderful host - she was a great source of information and was able to recommend good restaurants in the area - thank you.
