This is pretty much the best holiday home I have ever stayed at. What strikes you first when you arrive is the amazing location, perched on the top of a hill. Frankly, you could spend two weeks just walking around the grounds looking at the view of vineyards, olive groves and Tuscan landscape. We stayed during a heatwave so spent most of the time outside on the many verandahs and patios, where we ate, sampled the local drink, snoozed, read, played games, watched lizards catching flies, and just looked at the view, especially the incredible sunsets. The villa is well equipped with everything a modern family requires - in our case, with sons aged from 15-20, fast and reliable wi-fi, table tennis and a pool table kept them happy. I couldn't resist making pizza on the table outside the kitchen door, ready for my husband to cook in the wood-fired pizza oven. I now want one for my garden, but sadly the weather in England probably doesn't justify it! There are so many wonderful places to visit nearby (within 60-90 minutes' drive). There's the biggies: Florence, Siena, Pisa, Lucca. But also San Gimignano, and a tour of Chianti villages including Castellina in Chianti, Volpaia, Greve in Chianti and Montefioralle. Rita and Edoardo answered any queries we had very promptly and were very friendly and welcoming. We, very reluctantly, came back home and immediately starting talking about booking again for next year. It was such a fantastic base for a holiday. You know when you sometimes get back from holiday and within a week of being back at work it seems like a distant memory? It was the complete opposite of this after our fortnight at Villa Andrei, we keep on reliving the wonderful heat, the steady chatter of cicadas, the smell of olive groves and vines, the comfort and relaxation of being on holiday in Villa Andrei. I want to go back. I want to live in Chianti!
