Man wohnt ungestört auf einem kleinen Hügel, kann die kleinen Ortschaften aber mit dem Auto schnell erreichen. Die drei Wohnungen mit je zwei Zimmern und einer Küche sind gut aufgeteilt, es gibt hier unterschiedlich große Zimmer, ein weiteres Zimmer geht von der Hauptküche ab, ist aber durch 2 Türen von ihr getrennt. Der Außensitzplatz ist toll für gemeinsame Essen und gemütliche Abende. Der nette und sympathische Verwalter steht einem bei jeglichen Fragen zur Verfügung und hilft sofort weiter, hält sich aber sonst diskret im Hintergrund. Der herrliche, gepflegte Garten und Pool machen den Aufenthalt perfekt. Schöner kann ein Aufenthalt mit einer großen Gruppe nicht sein, absolut empfehlenswert.

The grounds are impeccable landscaped and the outside pool is truly breathtaking The main house has all the charm of a historic Tuscany farm house however every modern luxury convenience is provided for. The gourmet kitchen, the indoor dining room, the beautiful outdoor dining space and the various patios with unbelievable views surround the house. We cooked in nearly every night as two of our guests were outstanding chefs and we would eat wonderful Italian meals outside to the sound of Italian music - It does not get much better than that. The Villa is perfectly located between Rome and Florence and nestled among numerous historic Hill Towns - Pienza, Montepulciano, Orvieto, and on and on. The train station to Florence or Rome is only 25 minutes away. We cannot write a complete review without mentioning Samuela, the housekeeper. She was such a wonderful treat to see every morning and she was so helpful. Since we did not speak Italian and she does not speak English we had fun communicating to one another thru Google Translate. All in all this Villa exceeded all expectations. The owners were meticulous in their design and thoughtfulness. We could not have picked a better place to stay and will certainly stay again on our next trip to Italy.

The pool is amazing; a slate oasis that is cleaned each day--absolutely pristine. Mariacristina, the owner and host, is very responsive and was kind and flexible with our last minute changes to our plans.The suggested chefs were excellent and the outdoor dining was so enjoyable after long days touring around Tuscany. The grounds are stunning and the views from the photos do not accurately portray the beauty surrounding the villa from every direction. I can't say enough about how perfect this was for our families. My only note of caution is to be aware that screens are not on the windows. But the breeze felt fantastic!
