The estate is composed of two pretty houses which have been divided into sixteen apartments set in a lovely oasis of well kept grounds with lawns and colourful flowers. As well as the azure swimming pool (16m x 6m), which also has a hydro massage section, the attentive owners have added other extra facilities such as a barbeque, games room, laundry room, childrens play area and even a dining room where breakfast and dinner (high season only) are usually served on request.

The apartment opens onto its own loggia terrace area perfect for relaxing or dining al fresco.
Close by is a large swimming pool (16m x 6m) bordered by a terrace with gazebo and surrounded by lawns. The pool enjoys a view over the fields and countryside beyond and is a lovely spot for sunbathing . The estate also has a golf driving range and games room keep the little ones amused.
The little village of Braccagni is within walking distance only 1km away and has a supermarket and local shops, whilst the large town of Grosseto, at just 10kms, has a wider selection of amenities. The gorgeous coastal town of Castiglione della Pescaia is just 15 minutes drive away and boasts a lovely sandy beach.
The location is perfect for a relaxing holiday combining sightseeing with days at the sea or by the pool. The many sights of the Maremma such as the national parks, pretty towns of Sovana, Pitigliano and the famous thermal spas of Saturnia are all within easy driving distance and main road links nearby make Siena, Florence and even Rome.

The house and it's location was just perfect. The main tourist attractions are only 30 min. drive. Also the owners are very kind. We loved the tomato's and cucumbers from their own garden. The children loved the swimming pool and the swing witch hang on a three. The garden looked great and the view was nice. And also the weather was perfect.

Beautiful location and view from terrace and garden! We stayed in wila 2 families with small children for 2 weeks.Villa is for very good value. Garden is very clean and nice, kept very well. Surrounding area of villa is real tuscany country side! The fact that owners live next door was very helpfull. We had over privacy but when we needed help (medicine doctor because of fever of our baby) they helped us promptly and cheerfuly what we really appreciated. They were to our disposal whatever we needed and Pizza from Lucia was the best we tried in Tuscany! We hope we will come again to this great villa again in future. Two thumbs up for owners Gabrielle and Lucia!!! Definitely we recommend to our friends to go there. Martin, Slovakia
"An absolutely Delightful Villa - Five Star Hospitality"

Arriving at Villa Carol after a 3 day drive through France, Switzerland and Italy we were all looking forward to something special and we were not disappointed. The welcome we received from Gabrielli and Luccia made us feel at home straightaway and the meal that Luccia had prepared for us was delicious, washed down with some of Gabrielli's excellent wine. Something we enjoyed througout our stay. The accommodation was excellent from the comfortable lounge to the superb bedrooms and en-suite bathrooms. The only complaint we had was that Italian matresses are too hard, but after a few days we soon got used to that. The view from the garden over the local countryside is wonderful and spending an evening eating in the garden, drinking some more of Gabrielli's wine was an ideal finish to days visiting the area. Both Siena and Firenze are within an hours drive, but there is much more to see than that. San Gimgnano and the Chianti trail to mention just two are both worth visiting, although we found afternoons a better time to go out as the heat of the day is going and the shops re-open after an extended lunch. We had never been to Italy before and it lived up to all expectations, including the confusing traffic signs, the winding roads and numerous tunnels. Although Poggibonsi was a little of let down as it did not live up to our expectations of a typical Tuscan town, but we had much more to see. We were all very sad to leave after having brilliant weather, brilliant hospitality from our hosts, but we will be back for sure.
