We've been there during 4 days in May living in "La Francigena" appartment. The appartment is very nicely decorated, has very large rooms for very comfortably accommodating a family of 4, is very well equipped and has a wonderful view on the Tuscan hills from the terrasse. The property itself is really charming with very nice facilities and a large swimming pool. Guido and his family did a real paradise of this place. That's definitely the place to stay if you want to live in a quiet and comfortable place and visit Tuscany.
