Lovely old Tuscan property with commanding views of the surrounding countryside. We were a group aged from 5 1/2 to 85, and the size of the property and its grounds enabled people to either join in with everyone or to sit and read somewhere quiet. Outside dining table seats about 22 and there's also a large dining table in the kitchen if it rains. Lovely pool, maintained daily by Andrea the house manager who is a great source of help and advice about the surrounding area
We were a large group of extended family with several young children ranging in age from 10 months to 9 years and the property suited us perfectly. It had everything we needed including a great swimming pool and tennis court and the house itself was really spacious with great grounds. What really made the difference, though, were the hosts Sonja and Michael. They were so friendly and accommodating and made us feel like old friends from the outset! Sonja cooked us many wonderful meals and whereas we had intended to cook ourselves or to go out, chose to stay in and be catered for on most of the nights we were there. It would have been easy to not leave the villa at all for the week, but it is really well located to visit both Sienna and Florence on a day trip and close to many excellent vineyards where we sampled some of the best wine Italy has to offer (I am a convert to Montepiulciano Vino Nobile - some of the best red I have ever tasted!).
A few of the rooms in the Villa could do with a spruce up, but aside from that, this is the perfect holiday accommodation for any large group in the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
Thanks Sonja and Michael and I expect you'll see us all again soon!
