After two weeks of traveling throughout southern France and Italy, we landed at this location in the beautiful Tuscan region of Italy. The home was the perfect place to recharge ourselves. The sweet home has a true sense of enchantment throughout; from its views & architecture to the thoughtful way the homeowners have decorated and furnished it. I enjoyed being able to park our car securely here and easily walk up into the old town city center for shopping and delicious food. We had several homemade meals with our family here; the kitchen and dining areas were perfect - both inside and outside.
There is a lot of space in this home; an upstairs with a full bathroom and two bed rooms, each with two twin beds (or one kind beg depending on configuration). A downstairs that includes two twin beds, two comfortable futons and also a room with a king bed and a beautiful window view of the vineyard filled valley and hills (can also see several lakes from this view). The terraced balconies were perfect for morning and evening relaxation with gorgeous views that no camera can adequately capture.
The homeowners were extremely helpful and readily available for communication. If you're after an enjoyable Tuscan getaway, this is a magical destination. Thank you!

Myself, husband, and 2 boys (12 & 17) are at the tail end of a one month trip through Europe. We have stayed at 8 places so far in Spain, France, Italy, and Switzerland. Staying here was a define highlight to our trip.
Many of the places we've stayed feel like rentals. This felt like home. All the utensils and dishes necessary for a home cook meal, a private parking spot, random extras like novels and travel books to read, framed pictures of the gorgeous Tuscany region, drawers, desks, and clothes hanging racks... and the there is the DROP DEAD GEORGEOUS VIEWS! ...from the bedrooms, bathrooms, terraces, living room. Seriously, I took at least two dozen photos trying to capture it, but they don't do it justice. This house is sitting on a hill overlooking the most beautiful view in Tuscany... my humble opinion.
The location is ideal too. You can walk to the undrivable historic center, and you have the country in your backyard. The town is sweet. We enjoyed the Farmer's market, a yummy little pastry shop down the road, dinner at a place Erika recommended, and soaked in the view as much as we could. What a gem!!
