We spent a month enjoying this lovely retreat and using it as a base for occasional trips to other parts of Tuscany. It is quite remote, about half a mile from the nearest small village but we could hear the neighbours chickens sometimes, though we couldn’t see them. A car is essential, there are lots of interesting and beautiful places to visit within a 15mile radius but significantly the local railway station is only 10 minutes away by car and Tuscany is then your oyster. The villa is will equipped, although basic, gas stove, electric water heating and lighting and a wonderful fire necessary in the late September evenings.
The owner, Paolo, was contactable and very anxious and prompt to help in any way he could, for example when the internet failed he solved the problem within a few hours. We were invited to help ourselves to the wonderful produce in the garden attached to the villa.
The house sits by the side of a quiet road in a chestnut forest, it’s close to nature but also close to lots of history and the railway to wherever you’d like to be in Tuscany.
Our stay at Paradiso was fantastic, we where welcome by Daniele, who was very friendly and also provided us with fresh veg from his garden, then off he went and left us to it.
The house is small an comfortable and as everything you need. If you are after peace and quiet, I don't think you could find any better and hope to return in the future. Thanks to Daniele and Lorraine and the team at Tuscan Reteats
