The property is well equipped, and the kitchen has all mod cons - oven, hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, etc..
There is a large enclosed, private, well kept garden overflowing with flowers, and well equipped, with at least three al fresco eating areas - a large covered terrace, an enormous uncovered terrace, gazebo, and two BBQ, as well as a tree covered area with picnic table.
For relaxing, there are the good quality sunbeds around the large private pool (6 m x 12 m), recliners and of course a hammock.
Fuller details of house: Enter house via large uncovered terrace, into large living room with fireplace and arch vaulted beamed ceilings.
From the living room one finds the kitchen diner, with oven, hob, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and dining table. A modern kitchen but given a traditional feel with the beamed ceiling.
Also from living area, there is a light and spacious upstairs shower room.
The living area also leads out onto large covered terrace perfect for those cooler nights, and also offering shade for mid day eating. The terrace overlooks the garden and pool, with views of uninterrupted countryside.

It is a wonderful please to stay.
Very comfortable and cosi .
The house , the view around, the pool and little town down the road are just marvelous .
We had the best dinner with Renzo and Loretta in their house. They were very helpful with the instructions how to get around and recommendations on the restorants .
I close my eyes and see that place and dream about seeing Italy again
Thank you Renzo and Loretta
We had an excellent fortnight here and thanks to Renzo and Loretta for their unobtrusive care and friendly nature. Renzo makes a very nice wine too!
The property is set in a beautiful spot with truly stunning views out over the valley; the peaks in the background will certainly tempt anyone who enjoys hiking. The pool is a great size and is surrounded by immaculately trimmed lawn (great for our toddler) and Renzo keeps the garden, with masses of flowers, looking spectacular. The house itself is spacious, cool (no need for a/c, even in mid-July!) and comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped (although the oven isn't the most modern) and there are various places to sit and eat, although the terrace was our favourite. One of the best aspects for us was that you can walk down into Campogiano no problem (be prepared for a stiff walk back up - great for a bit of exercise) and down there you can buy any provisions you need, plus have a drink at teh bar, eat at the pizzeria and get cash out. There are plenty of day-trips nearby and some fantastic places to eat in the vicinity. Loretta and Renzo were so friendly and helpful that it felt like a home from home. We re-booked as soon as we got home!
Friendly owner, good pool service.
House , kitchen,.. well maintainted.
Only the comfort of the beds are poor. I woulds changed all the beds.
We had a fantastic family holiday here. The house is spacious, well equipped and immaculately clean. Our children loved the enormous garden and good sized pool. The views are stunning! The owners were great, extremely friendly and helpful. We booked with Tuscan Retreats who were also excellent. All in all we can't fault it!
