Our stay at the Villa was beyond amazing. The house was picturesque, and our party of ten fit more than comfortably in the surroundings. We spent our days relaxing by the pool and the beautiful garden, and our nights cooking wonderful meals which we enjoyed at the dining table looking out over the landscape. We explored the property, and it is worth the mosquitos to trek down to the lake and the vineyards. You need a car to really explore, but we did pretty well with the local bus that took us into Florence. The town of San Casciano is not too far away, and make sure you eat at Cinque di Vino while there. Guilia can help you set that up. She was an amazinf hostess. I LOVE this place, and hope to go back soon.
