Villa Cardeto is a beautiful stone country home nestled in the picturesque Tuscan hills 10 minutes from the quaint, and relatively tourist-free, mediaeval village of Anghiari, and approximaly an hour from Florence and Siena. The rooms are spacious, tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. Screens on the windows prevent insects from coming into the rooms, the washroom was brand new and equipped with a good hairdryer and the rooms even had adapters for international plugs! Umbrellas were available for all the guests, there was a library with a wide variety of international books, magazines and CDs for guests to enjoy. The swimming pool and sauna were sparkling clean, deck chairs and bathing towels were new. The breakfast buffet was to die for: homemade breads and marmelades, a variety of local cold cuts and cheeses, freshly prepared eggs, a selection of cereals, yoghurts and dried fruits and fruit juices, outstanding coffee and freshly picked fruits and tomatoes from the garden. Cold drinks are available for purchase at all times of the day. The patios and stairwells are lit with candles in the evening and there are homemade products to buy and take home if guests wish to do so. Ilona and Rolf are the sweetest, friendliest and most helpful hosts one could ever hope for. I guarantee you will be impressed and will want to return! Make sure you ask Ilona and Rolf to organize an olive oil tasting evening at a nearby 600-year-old Tuscan family-run farm. Great fun!
