Our group of 9 spent a perfect week at this lovely villa during the grape harvest September/October of 2013. Our second evening we were served a wonderful Tuscan meal including what was easily the best lasagna any of us had ever tasted. We "helped" with grape harvest one morning, shared the lovely patio area every evening (with a glass or two of wine) and enjoyed the view of the vineyards and olive trees from the pool area, even tho the pool was already closed for the season. We were met by the owner (no English) and her daughter, son, and other family members a few minutes later (English) who showed us the property, etc. and presented us with a bottle of their wine. The location made it easy to plan day trips by car to Cortona, Greve in Chianti, Sienna, and more as well as to Florence (twice) on the train. We would return to this villa in a heartbeat. Villa il rocolo is a "good year in Tuscany."

We were a group of 7 and decided on this villa as my grandmother was coming with us and couldn't manage stairs and this villa has 3 downstairs bedrooms. It is a lovely villa - beautifully decorated and furnished. Unfortunately the lady who owns it couldn't speak any English so the only time we managed to successfully communicate was when we first arrived and she had brought along someone who could speak English. On arrival we received a complimentary bottle of her own wine which was gorgeous and we would have bought more off her if we had had the opportunity. Two things we weren't keen on was the close proximity of the lady's house to the villa, although we scarcely saw her so it turned out not to be a problem, and the fact that the pool was above ground and so seemed quite temporary. However it was lovely having the pool all to ourselves. One thing I will say is that the place could have been a bit cleaner. We had to clean the cutlery drawer out ourselves as it had old crumbs from...
