Review of Villa Agostoli Casa Argo F
Villa Apostoli was a beautiful place in a picturesque setting that looked as if it had been taken from a painting. The house was a perfect location for us, as it was only 15 minutes from the heart of Siena and central to every place we wanted to visit. Our party had 3 couples, so Casa Argo F was perfect for us, as it had 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. The house was neat and clean and the individual checking us in, Elisa, was there to greet us when we arrived. During our stay, one of the individuals in our party began having severe back pain, and Elisa and the Windows on Italy staff were quick to provide assistance and recommendations for a medical doctor, who actually came to the house.
The weather was warmer than usual for September, and the villa does not have air conditioning. However, Elisa was quick to provide fans for us. The villa was very nicely decorated and furnished, and the beds, while firm, were comfortable. The patio table located right outside our door was perfect for dinner each night, and the swimming pool was a treat. There are a few things that would have made our stay easier. First, the bedding which consisted of top and bottom sheets and a heavy quilt, works well during chilly weather, but is too warm for the weather we had while there. It would have been more comfortable to have had a light blanket as an option. Secondly, the kitchen had very little room to prepare food and it would have been helpful if it had been stocked with more basic supplies - such as a sponge, dish soap, paper towels, sharp knives, and some essential cooking elements such as salt, pepper, olive oil, etc. We left quite a lot of supplies in the kitchen, and rather than clearing them all out, it would be nice to leave them for the next guests. Many guests may not cook much during their stay, but we enjoy fixing our own meals, and found it a bit awkward. One really nice plus about Villa Agostoli is that it has a large garden which we were invited to use, so frequently we picked tomatoes and peppers for our meals. Thirdly, having some basic toiletries in the bathrooms (in addition to the toilet paper, which was provided) would have been nice. Finally, while we were delighted to have a clothes washer available to us, it did not work very well, and we ultimately had to wash our clothes by hand. We were told that it was going to be replaced.
Overall, our stay in Casa Argo F was comfortable and enjoyable. I would definitely recommend it.
We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Argo F
We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Argo F. The landscaping and views around the property were beautiful and we enjoyed long walks and runs along the winding roads. The home was very clean when we arrived, and was the perfect size for our group of 3 couples quirk 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. We used the outside dining space on the terrace every evening for dinner and some other meals. The swimming pool just down the hill from our apartment was maintained quite well and was a nice feature.
Summer In Italy was available during our stay. At one point, one of our party needed to see a doctor, and Valeria was quick to find someone who spoke English and made house calls. He came within a few hours of our request and was great! You are doing a wonderful job! Continue to do what you are doing. You guys were great!
