Only problem was the lack of ice. Not only at the villa but all over the area. Only certain rooms had A/C which made the stay hot and uncomfortable. The wine at the estate was excellent. Breakfast were very good but could have been varied from day to day to break things up. There is only so much parma ham and cheese one can eat. The venue is perfectly suited to a big group.
Chianti is fantastic and I can definately advise on a visit to one of the many wineries in the area. We found a butchery in Grieve that will make any
The self catering facilities are average but adequate. Which helped to keep food costs down by buying food from the local supermarket in Poggibonzi (PAM). The prices of goodsin the supermarket are very reasonable even sometimes cheaper than at home.
The venue is within an hour or so drive from Sienna, Florence and Chianti which gives you plenty of day trip options
