Beautiful, peaceful, relaxing and great accommodation for what you pay! We got our true tuscan experience basing out of this wonderful property while we explored tuscany. Be ready to speak the language with locals in the small country villages- English is not as common as you might think!

We had only been in our apartment, shutters open with a view of the valleys and vineyards beyond, when we said to ourselves (family members: 7): this is it, this is what we have wanted to experience all our lives, and we will come back. This may sound like excessive enthusiasm from a novice traveller. But we know Tuscany, we... More

We had a great time here! Owners were friendly and helpful without interfering. Apartment was large and well stocked. Ambra is the cutest town ever. Great place to escape the crowds and enjoy beautiful Tuscany.

Beautifullly renovated apartments with lots of room and everything you need for a relaxing stay. Close to Siena, the Chianti, the Crete & Florence. We stayed for 6 nights & managed to pack in a heap of sightseeing. We would... More

This place was absolutely gorgeous. We used it as a base for visiting Siena, Florence and Perugia. The hospitality was beyond measure. Fortunato and Gisella were wonderful hosts. I want to come back and spend more time here. I loved the quiet of the tuscan hills.
