Beautiful property on the top of a little hill in the middle of Tuscany. Fall asleep listening to the cicadas chirping and awake to the sounds of wild boar and birds. Stayed in the Giovanni apartment with four adults and two children, was very spacious, clean, and comfortable with all the comforts of home available including free WiFi, use of a barbecue (wood burning style) and the awesome pool area with gazebos for shade. Everyone also has their own private patio/table for outdoor eating and entertaining. Fortunato and Gisela are wonderful, helpful hosts, be sure to buy some of their inexpensive wines especially the prosecco. There are a few restaurants within a 10-15min drive, along with a couple good grocery stores in nearby small towns. The road up to the property is narrow and windy with little room to meet another car (though do-able), so just be careful. Bike riding at this location is on difficult inclined terrain so most would be better off taking a hike instead. You can also do laundry at 3euros per load. Be sure to take Fortunato's advice about taking the train to Florence as we got very lost driving there and back. Other day trips to Montelpulciano very worthwhile by car as were Siena and San Gimiano. Driving in Italy is interesting to say the least, locals drive very fast with no regard for lanes, signalling or yielding to others. Signage on roadways is also somewhat confusing as there can be arrows pointing two different directions to get to the same place, so pay attention and be aware, and have a very good map/directions or a GPS. Would highly recommend this property for a peaceful change from the big busy Italian cities. Be certain to have a tour of the estate by Fortunato along with an amazing lesson in history. Unwind, relax and watch the sunrises and sunsets!!
