Charming cottage, great location, a bit tricky in bad weather
Left on 09/26/2013 for a stay in April 2013 | Peter
The cottage is great, the location is great,the nearby town of Cetona is great, Emma Villas were great. The weather did cause some problems because the property is located on a long dirt driveway off a dirt road and when it is muddy the roads can be very treacherous as we found to our cost! We ended up parking on the street and walking the long muddy driveway because there was nowhere to turn. I would love to visit the property again in the summer.
