The shared inifinity pool was very attractive and suitable for all abilities of swimmer. There was plenty of seating around the pool to enjoy the scenery.The recycling arrangements are a bit complicated but it is good to know they take it seriously. The mosquitoes restricted our evenings on the terrace, however. We were lucky that there was no one in the apartment next to us whilst we were there as the outside seating areas were right next to each other. We left some information on local supermarkets as there was no obvious information available in the apartment other than some leaflets and maps of things to see by previous occupants. We did thoroughly enjoy the holiday and had a very relaxing time exploring the local area.

Our 2-storey lodgings were delightful, so picturesque, the views magnificent, changing all the time with the light. A little rustic – no hair dryer, microwave, AC, washing machine or American-style coffee maker – but this is the countryside, and we managed and loved it! And the internet service was excellent. And when we figured out how to use the espresso coffee maker we had wonderful coffee! We sat outside every morning and evening in our private little garden. A car is a must, in my opinion, and driving in Italy is much easier than I had been led to believe. I would not want to drive in the cities but country driving for me was most enjoyable and a lot of fun. On the days we went to Florence we drove to the train station in Poggibonsi and took the train in, a very pleasant ride. I would love to return to Tuscany and would definitely stay here again.
