“Great location and pool, but some improvements needed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Just returned from week at Malvasia with family. Overall, enjoyed the holiday but felt some comments would be helpful for potential future guests. On a positive note, Malvasia is excellently located for exploring the beautiful Tuscan countryside and towns, the villa is certainly spacious and the pool and surrounding garden area are very good. The restaurant in the tiny village of Lornano within walking distance can also be recommended and the nearest small supermarket is only a couple of minutes drive away in the neighbouring town of Badesse. The weather we experienced was very hot, high 30's, and this was the source of some of the potential issues with the villa. Whilst appreciating that the climate is out of control of the owners, there are ways of mitigating the effects and feel more could be done in this area. In common with a lot of older villas in Tuscany, there is no air-con and as the bedrooms are on the 3rd floor, it was extremely hot at night and difficult to sleep. There was only one small portable fan provided despite request locally for another, so we had to make a choice as to which bedroom it would be located in. Surely, for a minimal cost, an extra fan could be provided to ease the comfort of the guests ?. Also, be aware of the presence of a lot of mosquitoes at this time of year as well and the likelihood of ending up with a considerable number of bites. Whilst not wanting to put people off, all I would say is think carefully before booking this villa at the height of summer for the reasons above. Also, as previous reviewers have alluded to, the property would be improved with more comfortable furniture in the living areas and also on the terrace outside the kitchen, which was actually quite poor in comparision with the other two, larger villas in the complex.
