We were a group of 8 Canadian women who stayed at Villa Treggiaia the first week of September. The views are breathtaking and the architecture amazing to look at. The owner, Maria, does her best to communicate and help you with any issues that may arise. If visiting make sure to partake in Pizza Night at the local community centre, (only Sun evening) and visit I Casilini, the small winery, next door. You won’t be disappointed. A car is a necessity, due to location, to pick up groceries, tour the beautiful country side and visit wineries, etc. A few changes would make this rental perfect: Upgrade WIFI - it is very poor; a coffee maker that makes more than 2 cups/a kettle/and a couple of hair dryers that can be used in the bathrooms.
We were two families in this large farmhouse in Tuscany just outside of Florence. The owner was absolutely lovely and the view outside our bedroom window was wonderful to wake up to. The grandchildren loved all the rooms and spent time exploring. Because of the size of the house we were able to have our own space. I would highly recommend it.
