A beautiful villa in a secluded and peaceful valley. The scenery is amazing: rolling farmland in the foreground and impressive hills in the background, with olive trees and cherry trees abundant at the villa. The pool is idyllic and our family enjoyed meals al fresco under the excellent pergola. There are plenty of bedrooms and the villa is decorated to a high modern standard. It is spread over several floors, however, with lots of steps throughout - so is not perfect for families with small children/toddlers.
The owner and local property manager were both excellent - before and during the stay - very helpful and responsive.
There are interesting local towns not too far away, eg Anghiarri and Sansepolcro (around 40 minutes) but not a great deal of amenities closer to home, so suggest stocking up further afield.
Overall, a great stay in a fantastic hidden away location.
The house is located in a beautiful setting and was very clean with everything we needed. It consists of two good sized bedrooms; kitchen and bathroom, the kitchen being in the centre of the property. There is no lounge but the kitchen does have a couch. The patio area outside (where we spent all our time when not sight seeing) is a substantial size and we were able to view the sea in one direction and Mt Etna in the other. It was very hot the whole week. The property is set among lemon and orange groves and was prone to mosquitoes. There is a machine at the property to repel them. Fairly reliable wi fi. There were four of us (two adult children) my son decided to come after I had booked so he slept on a camp bed in the kitchen which Mario and Angela very kindly made up. They were so helpful and even took my daughter and myself to the supermarket to stock up whilst my husband made a turnaround trip to pick up our son from the airport. The property is further out than I expected; and although it is only 4 km from the sea it actually took a while to get there due to the winding roads. I would recommend this property and the owners who were extremely obliging but without being intrusive. Thank you Mario and Angela
