GORGEOUS HOUSE, PERFECT FOR FAMILY HOLIDAY

4 of 5
We all loved this house, loads of room for our extended family, well equipped kitchen for the cooks, gorgeous swimming pool and large terrace for relaxing, perfect covered area for our family meals. The location with magnificent views of Siena and the surrounding countryside was amazing. Only negative was that the internet didn't function at all for most of our stay which was a problem for members of the family who needed to do some urgent work

A slice of heaven

5 of 5
This is a most peaceful and comfortable house situated in a beautiful location. We have been coming to Tuscany on holiday for many years and this is really the best holiday home we have ever found. Adi, the owners' representative, is a fluent English speaker and is very helpful. The view from the rear of the house is outstanding and watching the changing of the light is mesmerising.
