This review is a little late, but the experience we had is well worth taking the time to write it. My wife and I were trying to find a place to relax and enjoy our 25th anniversary with our family and we couldn't have found a better spot. The grounds and property are amazing, with a private pool enjoy all to ourselves. The pool terraces and out kitchen very cozy and had everything we needed to just relax and enjoy the real Tuscany. With everything so close including wineries and restaurants, there was plenty to keep us busy when we went sight seeing. But, the best part about it, is that some of us didn't want to leave the villa - simply relaxing by the pool and just enjoying the endless scenery and villa - a vacation in itself.
For our "big Day" we arranged for a local chef to come along and prepare the most awesome lunch for us all. Everything from canapés to a fabulous cake - We were spoilt!
We can easily highly recommend this vacation home if your looking to enjoy either Tuscany's countryside,go touring or, simple enjoy living in an amazing Tuscan villa that will make you want to return - before another 25 years! . Thank you Gerry for all that you did to make our trip a great experience!
