5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Had a fantastic fortnight staying in Casa Marginetta in Northern Tuscany. The scenery is amazing, spoilt with wonderful places to visit, Cities such as Pisa, Florence, Siena & Lucca all within easy driving distance. Close to the coast too, especially worth visiting just over the border in Liguria is Portovenere and the Cinque Terre. The views on the mountain roads are breathtaking. The house is well supplied with everything you could need for as busy or relaxing a holiday as you want and the views from the windows made me smile every morning they are so gorgeous. more

When we arrived the property was clean and tidy. There was a jug of iced lemon water in the fridge, a bowl of plums and a bottle of local wine together with a very welcoming note.

The property was spacious, very well equipped and had everything we needed.

The location is amazing though. Stunning views across the village rooftops and then out across the tree covered hills.

Best things were the level of equipment in the property, its location and the warmth of the...
