What a fabulous location...close to San Gimignano and Volterra. We were provided with detailed instructions not only regarding navigating to the property, but also helpful 'hints and tips' about car hire, supermarket shopping and generally about etiquette in restaurants. Good communication from the owner. Excellent accommodation furnished very tastefully. Plenty of recommended restaurants locally which we enjoyed too. Only niggles... more

I have had no other complaints about... more

When you walk up the path to the villa you are surrounded by fragrant lavender and jasmine swaying in the breeze. Opening the door the cool temperature is thanks to the terracotta... more
