My husband and I just returned from a 3 week trip to Italy and the 9 days that we spent at Villa Il Pozzo were by far the highlight of our entire stay. The villa is wonderful - furnished with beautiful antiques and yet provides you with all the conveniences needed. The grounds and the views all around the property are amazing and the area is peaceful and quiet, and a great location to tour the Tuscany towns, such as San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena. Allesandro is the perfect host - welcoming, helpful and gave us a great wine tour and wine tasting. We stayed in the Terrace apartment and enjoyed eating breakfast outside in the morning and a glass of wine in the evening as we watched the sunset. I highly recommend Villa Il Pozzo!
Allesandro, Bob and I are already talking about our next visit!!! We will be back!!!!

Stucco, frescoes, and high hand-painted ceilings make Villa Il Pozzo the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation. At walking distance there are a family-owned Tuscan Restaurant, a mini-market, and one of the oldest churches of the region.
