The apartment was nice and comfortable. The location was excellent and we enjoyed the quietness.
We believed that the private gazebo was some kind of terrasse. But only some of the apartments had a terrasse where the guests could enjoy having a drink and meals. Ours was not easily accessible. I understood that cleaning of the apartment would be done everyday; but only the beds where made. Linens were changed on Thursday as opposed to Wednesday. The satellite TV was not working when we arrived and it took 2 days to fix it. The kitchen was nice but missing some appliances; a coffee maker (we bought one and left it in the apartment) and a corkscrew would have been appreciated. Also, the dinner we had the first day at the Trattoria was expensive and only fair in quality. However breakfasts were OK.

Wow. A fabulous location AND a beautiful, beautiful accomodation. Everything was done with the highest quality...incredible.
Everything was good down to the details - screens on the windows and cleaned meticulously. Staple foods were provided and replenished so we were never totally empty shelfed.
They were doing some work in the area...so there was some noise in the a.m. - earlier than I would have liked. Probably a very temporary situation.
It was remote without being inaccessible. The pool and facilities were nice. The nearby towns were not places you would have heard of, so we saw more of Italian life (as opposed to tourist life). Yet, it was a nearby drive to Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, etc.

We were very happy with the property. It would have been nicer if there was a CD player to listen to music. The patio area did not have a table for outside dining. The pool was not within walking distance for small children.
The location was excellent and the view of the Tuscan hills could not be better.
You could not walk to the pool with small children.
Great suggestions from the reception as for restaurants in the area.
