We stayed at this gorgeous villa for 4 night in April. In one word, this villa is truly amazing. The villa is 18 century house but with beautiful renovated interior (that still keep the ancient house feeling) . The villa is big and there is plenty of room for 6 to 8 people. The villa has an amazing huge back yard, which is actually a private park. The village where the villa is located is quite and beautiful.
The villa is well equipped; the kitchen is amazing and has everything that you need if you want to cook. Wifi is good; you also get soap, shampoo, towels etc... The shower room and bathroom are beautifully designed. Over all, the villa is just special, it is a blend of ancient and modern and you really feel like you are back to 18 century in Tuscany, not to mention the place was spotless!
The owner left us a bottle of wine, all kinds of tea and a lot of information regarding places we can travel around the villa. The owner is an artist so throughout the villa u can find all kinds of beautiful artwork. The villa is filled with books, so you will not get bored. The villa is a perfect place for serenity, and I must say anyone who goes there will not be disappointed, this place is like a dream and there is no doubt we going to come back. Again the atmosphere in there is magical. This place is highly recommended, seriously.
Also there is a great restaurant 5 minutes’ walk from the villa which is very nice! The villa is managed by a Women named Sabrina, and I booked the trip with her via email. She is so nice! Professional and helpful, she accepted us when we arrived and throughout our stay at the villa, she always stayed in touch with us asking if everything is ok and if we need anything else.
