The villa Tenuta Contessa Chiara was well worth the week long stay for 12 of us. The owners, the Grisori brothers, spared no effort to insure that we were taken care of. The large pool was loved by everyone, especially the 4 bambini, and the adults enjoyed to tennis court. A great place for a family vacation.
