I was fortunate to discover this lovely villa in the Tuscan countryside for our four-week stay. It is situated about 4 km from Chianciano which has a quaint "old town" and the views over the surrounding rolling hills of various cultivations are superb. We were a family of six adults and three children and it was made so enjoyable because of the ample space in this traditional double story stone house. There are all the modern conveniences, including a perfectly situated pool, to make it a perfect escape in the Italian countryside. The owner Raffaelle was excellent in helping us sort out anything that needed attention and very generous with local produce and wines. We have spent many holidays in Italy and this is one of the best properties in which we have stayed.
