Very imposing villa, clean, comfortable, and helpful staff. Set high on a hillside, the very old Villa retaiing a lot of 'old' but charismatic features, affords lovely views, particulalrly from the swimming pool, down into the valley and beyond. We stayed for four days having been in Florence for the previous 3, and it was a lovely contrast. However, it is a short drive, and is accessible by train, so it could be used as a base to travel into Florence if required. We did travel to Bologna, and Pisa to fly home, which are about 90 mins, and 2 hours by car respectively. Generous self service buffet breakfast, and very good food available at lunch and dinner.
Only minor complaint is that you have to ask at reception every time for drinks during the day and the evening.
