I have made numerous reviews but until now never enjoyed making one as i have with this.
This place is above perfection! The house is full of antiques and frescos with the most well found furniture and beautiful original features. From the moment we were greeted (lovely glass of Chianti wine) to the overall experience, this is a place where no one is allowed to give less then 5 stars. EVERYTHING is just fabulous. Amazing 12th century manor house, lovingly restored and maintained to perfection. The rooms are far beyond what you would expect from an agriturismo. We booked 2 rooms and to saying we are happy with everything is just not enough. Comfortable beds, extremely well equipped and decorated with the most charming taste. The views from our room (#1) was just like a painting.. Absolutely amazing...the most perfect Tuscan experience, period!!
The manor house, gardens and swimming pool are so well maintained and all of the above made us re-schedule our itinerary and decided to spend a whole day enjoying it all.
Last to mention the most delicious food served for breakfast and dinner and the hospitality of the people working in Villa Il Leccio is second to none. Friendly, available, honest, really made us feel as the Villa was ours (I wish) ... Close to Florence (20 minutes drive ) also to Siena and San Gimignano makes it the perfect place to stay.
