Great place ; thanks to Steve who made booking an absolute breeze, very helpful. Directions perfect. Views from all areas fantastic. Villa is semi detached but still very private , we saw 1 other person during a week at the end of September. Within a short drive there are vineyards and villages, it’s also just a great place for relaxing, painting, reading, BBQ and the pool area was just lovely! Recommend a trip to Volterra, and obviously San Gimignano. We chose to park at Certaldo train station (realistically a 35min drive away) straightforward direct trips by train to both Siena and Florence 40 mins to 55mins away, easy. And- WiFi was great, kitchen had all we needed; beds were comfy, thank you for the welcome pack; Completely and fully recommend this villa.
We spent a super relaxing week here, and it is ideally located near (like 20-30 mins) Volterra, San Gimignano, Colle d'Elsa, and Sacromonte di San Vivaldo. You definitely need a car if you are staying here. The room downstairs was nice for my mom, and had a bug screen on the window, which was great. You can drive up the narrow gravel driveway on the LEFT of the house only if you are good at backing out in reverse (my mom has limited mobility so I would park there so she didn't have to walk up the hill up all the stairs from the lower parking area). Owners had a nice welcome basket for us with some basics like bread, jam, etc. The pool is shallow enough that I could stand the full length of the pool (I'm 5 feet tall) with just my head sticking out. If you or your kids are really buggy I recommend bringing some Scotch Removable Mounting Putty and some mosquito netting to improvise bug screens for the two upstairs windows. Washing machine onsite upstairs (time delay for opening it after it runs), drying rack to hang your clothes to dry on one of the porches downstairs. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO ARRIVE IN THE DARK as you will miss your turn! The turn-off is a SMALL gravel road on SP4 Volterrana. We had a great time at this place!
Idyllic Tuscany setting with 360 degree panoramic views. Really enjoyed the tranquility. Comfortable villa ideal for up to 6 people and set up with absolutely everything one would need. The welcome package was a very nice touch and happily consumed. We made constant use of the 2 terraces/patios and the pool and were also glad to have the BBQ to use. My only recommendation is to try and arrive on the first day during daylight as we personally had trouble finding the entry road in the dark. We would definitely like to come back again.
It was very nice.
Steve is so helpful.
Beautiful Toscan country landscape.
The house is so pretty.
We would like to come back.
Great location in the centre of Tuscany. Couldn't of hoped for better views form the property. Very adequate property for 3 adults and 2 children. The children enjoyed the pool apart from being a little chilly!
We enjoyed our weeks stay in this beautiful location.
Would highly recommend.
