The overall experience was great. We used the villa for a group of 6, and it worked out perfectly.
We enjoyed the locale quite a bit. You really are in the country, with a beautiful view and quiet nights. The pool (and its awesome view) is also a nice touch. The caretaker was also unbelievably helpful and nice. For example, wine, cheese, and fresh eggs were left for us upon our arrival. He also gave us driving directions, restaurant recommendations, etc.
It is a great location, particularly if you want to visit both Umbria and Tuscany. We visited Montepulciano, Siena, Montalcino, Perugia, Panicale, Castiglione Lago, etc. We also took the train into Florence. The train station in Chiusi (off the Rome to Florence line) is quite convenient.

We had a marvelous time at the villa. Perfectly located with a great host. Besides being everything we were looking for in terms of beauty, location, cleanliness, accommodations, pool, Tuscan view...we were very happy to find that Raffaele, our excellent host, was there to help us arrange everything we needed including private wine tastings and fresh cherries. Marcella came over one night and made a tremendous Tuscan dinner with excellent wine. Lorenzo offered translations and suggestions for places to visit. The location made for great trips to all the wonderful "old towns". The marvelous cat, Stella, made it a lasting memory. Highly recommend.
Besides the great location (near town but out in the vineyards), the villa is quiet and has both a swimming pool and a tremendous view of the surrounding hillsides.
The villa is centrally located near most all the Tuscan towns and locations. We made easy drives to many lovely spots and with the help of Lorenzo he made it even more special. Lorenzo took us on a tour one day to all the wonderful stops and of course, great wine locations.

We had an amazing month. The villa hosts, Raffaele and Lorenzo, went above and beyond to ensure that we had an enjoyable vacation and we really appreciate all of their thoughtful efforts. Raffaele, the villa host, brought us many amazing local foods and meals, which were so appreciated and delicious!
Peaceful, amazing sunsets, modern bathrooms (great soaker tub with jets), very private, nice yard and house. Well equipped kitchen. We liked the open floor plan with dining room table and couch area, which was helpful for keeping an eye on our small children. Also, the screened windows to keep the bugs out.
Amazing hilltowns, views, food, wine and very friendly, kind people.
