Highly recommended!

A Beautiful And High Quality Villa Oozing Character In Glorious Tuscany. Fabulous jacuzzi, private pool, country views and grounds. A large, generously equipped kitchen with high quality appliances and lots of preparation surface. Four very good sized bedrooms with clean and comfortable beds ( we slept well here despite the very hot weather) and very nice bathrooms. Spotlessly clean. Well located for Tuscan touring and Autostrada, 1km to gorgeous Cetona with local supermarket and shops, cafes and restaurants. 10 minutes to large PAM supermarket. Excellent BBQ with wood provided. Owners Valerio and Daniela are welcoming and knowledgeable. The pool is cleaned at 7am each morning. The gardens are beautiful and overlook olive groves and sunflower meadows. This brings mosquito bites in hot weather so do come prepared if you are susceptible.

Too good to share!

We had a wonderful time at this lovely rural house. It is beautifully appointed and there is a feel of the modern mixed within a rural setting. It is clean and beautifully furnished with wine included in our welcome pack! The photos do not really do justice to the pool, bedrooms and surrounding area. It is so lovely we'd love to keep how good it is to ourselves. The lack of TV suited us perfectly and we had no problems with the WiFi whcih is also accessible by the pool. The grounds are extensive and collecting fresh fruit and veg from the gardens was a superb addition to our holiday experience. Each bedroom has en-suites which was perfect for our adult family. Air conditioning was much needed and we enjoyed some spectacular thunderstorms too. We loved Cortona and Castiglione and Fabio at the Poggio Bertaio winery gave a wonderful tour. Communication with the owner was excellent and travel could only be improved if you could fly to Perugia on a Saturday or lets were from Sunday to Sunday. We loved it. Thank you!
