Ideally we wanted somewhere peaceful but reasonably close to a town or village and centrally placed to get out and about, we weren't disappointed. The house is no more than 1 mile from the beautiful town of Volterra, historic streets lined with lovely shops, bars and restaurants, we had to tear ourselves away to explore the region! The owner was very easy to deal with when booking the house and provided detailed information not just about the house, but the local area as well. Upon arrival, late at night, we were delighted with the welcome hamper that had been left to greet us, with some delicious local goodies it made a very nice start to our break.The view from the veranda that greeted us the next morning was incredible - and we spent one entire day just sat out admiring it - with some local produce to keep us sustained! The house was spotlessly clean and contained everything we needed, of particular use was the wifi, which, despite the owners warning, was very reliable in terms of connection for the entire week. Very comfy beds with plenty of storage space and a lovely garden to roam around, the house is accurately described, with a perfectly acceptable kitchen should you decide to self-cater.We travelled to San Gimignano (twice) and would recommend the ice cream from the shop in the square with 'world’s best ice cream' on their sign - we wouldn't disagree! Also the view from the point on right hand side of the main street - spectacular. We drove to Poggibonsi and caught the train to Florence - 7 euros each - free parking by the station and an hour on the train with return trains every hour - perfectly simple.An hour’s drive in the other direction is Sienna via Monteriggioni - well worth a visit and have a lunch at the restaurant half way down the main street on the right - not cheap but worth every penny. We also went for a drive west from Volterra to Bolgheri via Montecatini - the only problem being we had to stop every few miles to take photographs of the view! Our final trip was up to Viareggio north of Pisa, a beautiful walk on the beach, even in October - and some very high class shopping on the front, we called in at the leaning tower of Pisa on the way back home - amazing. All in all a busy but very interesting week. I would certainly recommend that you stay here, the only thing we didn't try was the well proportioned swimming pool - well it was the last week in October!

The design & layout of the property is such a great use of the space, the villa was really well equipped, the bed is very comfortable & all linen etc is as anyone would need & the spec of the property is very high. The view from the terrace is actually better than photos can show. The little hamlet in which it stands has been beautifully restored to be an excellent isolated place but near other properties. The pool was great - especially as there were not many properties occupied when we were there, in September - and Roberto, who welcomed us on arrival & checked on us occasionally through the week, was most helpful & charming. As throughout the whole booking & staying process, was Colm, the owner - even though he was actually in Dublin. It is a perfect base for what is perfect Tuscan scenery & tourist spots within an hour or so- but we enjoyed the walking too. We found the Via Francigena, which we had no idea of until we arrived. What a lovely stretch it is there between Gambassi Terme & San Gimignano. A perfect week. Many thanks. Phil
