The property itself is very nice. Unfortunately nothing works and no one cares. When we arrived we pointed out that the air conditioner wasn't working and the pool was rather green. Through record high temperatures, the aC never did get fixed. The pool got worse and worse until they dumped in chemicals. From then on it was cloudy and smelled of the chemicals they added. They did try to fix some things, but things don't move quickly in rural Italy. The owners were not at all reasonable in making amends. It's a good location for day trips to Florence, Pisa, Lucca, et al. They see to have changed the name (used to be Villa Valle), but this is definitely the place we stayed.
