We found it very comfortable and spacious with good kitchens , plenty of crockery. Some nice pieces of furniture which helped the ambiance. We all really enjoyed the holiday.

The pool is a good size and very welcome for cooling off and exercise. If you forget to bring a book, don't worry, there is a library to suit all tastes and moods. Montisi is unspoiled and pictureque and nearby San Giovanni d'Asso harbours an excellent restaurant, Il Castello - highly recommended. A bottle of Brunello is a must. The wine centres of Montalcino and Montepulciano are both nearby and are good to visit and the village used for filming 'The English Patient' is about 5km away. We will be recommending it to friends and hope to return ourselves one day.
