It is convenient (10 minutes by car) to restaurants and shopping in town. The location is an excellent base from which to visit Florence, Siena, San Gimignago, Certaldo and other attractions in Tuscany. The hosts, Maurizio and Angiolina are warm, friendly, gracious and helpful. Maurizio speaks excellent English and Angiolina speaks excellent French. We stayed in the larger apartment, and it was very clean, spacious, comfortable and very well maintained. We were totally pleased with our experience. I would gladly recommend this property highly.

The villa works great for a multi-generational get-together, as it is divided into 3 separate apartments. The grounds of the villa are gorgeous and well-kept and the pool is well-maintained. A car is necessary for any outings, as the villa is quite remote and only accessed by dirt roads. There are no restaurants, shopping or other amenities within walking distance, so a vehicle is necessary to enjoy the wonderful Chianti area. We only have good things to say about the housekeeper/keyholder, who assisted us in many aspects. All in all the villa lived fully up to our expectations and more.
