    Additional amenities & feature info
    The house combines a sense of history with all the features which go to make this idea of modern living. The whole property has central heating for the colder months and for the chilly Spring and Autumn evenings, we have a wood fire. The house combines a sense of history with all the features which go to make this idea of modern living. The main and most imposing feature of the living room is the hugely magnificent Tuscan fireplace with its wood burner. There is wireless internet access and this is provided with small charge subject to fair usage - we like to feel that we provide a real opportunity for you to keep in touch with your work and regular life while basking and relaxing in the Tuscan Countryside.

    The kitchen is beautifully fitted with ample utensils, crockery, cutlery etc...

The service and information provided by the owners at the time of booking was exceptionally good and very informative. Replies to my subsequent emails about the property were answered very promptly.

We stayed at the property for eleven days in mid/late September. The weather was hot with temperatures for much of the time at around 30 degrees. We had a couple of days with thunder-storms and heavy showers but were still able to get out and explore.

We enjoyed a wonderful welcome by the owners at this fabulous house in a beautiful setting. We had everything we needed and more- a real home from home! The pool and garden were great. We were able to combine relaxing peaceful days in the sun with fascinating visits to beautiful Italian villages and Florence, Arrezo and Siena (all easy to get to). The information left by the owners was invaluable- we followed their restaurant recommendations and had some really lovely meals out. more
