                                                                                                      4 of 5

The villa works great for a multi-generational get-together, as it is divided into 3 separate apartments. The grounds of the villa are gorgeous and well-kept and the pool is well-maintained. A car is necessary for any outings, as the villa is quite remote and only accessed by dirt roads. There are no restaurants, shopping or other amenities within walking distance, so a vehicle is necessary to enjoy the wonderful Chianti area. We only have good things to say about the housekeeper/keyholder, who assisted us in many aspects. All in all the villa lived fully up to our expectations and more.

The kitchen and common areas have everything you would want in a holiday home, the pool was warm and sunny with a great view and a great size for either swimming laps or kids playing. The grounds were big enough for the kids (aged 6-8) to run around and play. Service was great as was the night with the chef. The air conditioning worked well and a great benefit. We had only 2 families (could easily fit more) but chose to pay the supplement for one extra bed as we wanted the 3 kids all together in one room /cottage and that was the only way to get that arrangement. The perfect place for a holiday/vacation in Italy.
