My daughter's family had stayed here 3 years ago and suggested it as a fine spot for a larger family gathering. Can't praise it enough. Nothing was too much trouble for Ron, who visited every day with his lovely dog, Pepe (a favourite with us all). Accommodations were spacious, comfortable, well-equipped, and finished to a very high standard indeed. The...

Additional amenities & feature info
In typical Tuscan fashion, the villa has an outdoor staircase connecting the top and middle floors, so in essence it can function as two separate living suites. The house is furnished with Italian and English antiques, original oil paintings and oriental rugs, including some brought back from a trip to Morocco. The master suite on the top floor is the Zanzibar Suite, a large romantic bedroom with French doors overlooking the mountains, features a pair of canopied antique beds, carved from rosewood and mahogany and inset with painted glass hearts, imported from Zanzibar especially for this room. The master suite on the middle floor is the Venetian Suite, with a queen-sized pillow-top bed imported from the US and classic Venetian furnishings. A staircase from this room leads down to French d... more
