Property is kept to high standard and handy for many Tuscan location (need a car rental although there is a train station a couple of miles down the road) but mostly the hosts are wonderful people. Don't get put off by the vicinity of the fast rail tracks, you'll hardly notice it. We were there as a family of 5 and loved every minute. Grazie.
A very pleasant and charming romantic house. Very cosy and the house stays real cool and had all the comfort we needed. The owner of the property lives nearby and is very friendly, charming and helpful, as well as his family. We had a huge part of the garden for our own with real privacy. The pool was 5 x 5. Not big but my two sons 11 and 13 had a great time. Especially with the small cute dog and lots of young cats, so adorable.
If you want some peace and want to relax, reading a nice book enjoying the environment, its possible here. You don't hear the cars in the streets its very peaceful and quiet. Except for some dogs barking further on and the TGV(train) you hear once in a while.
For us this place has given us a warm, beautiful memory.
