My family of six loved every minute of our time at this villa. We had never used this site before, but everything was exactly as described.
The villa is literally a 5-10 minute walk (depending on whether you stop to take pictures, eat a pastry outside the village walls, stop to look at the amazing views, etc) from Monticchiello, which was very convenient for me to do a pastry run in the morning, or for my boys to go exploring. The views from the property were terrific, especially from the second floor patio, where we often had dinner and watched the sun set behind Pienza on the next hill. The large,deep, well-cared for pool was just what we needed to relax after long days in the countryside. And there always seemed to be a breeze, even on the hottest days.
The pace of life was wonderful and unhurried. The townspeople were friendly and welcoming. There were many towns and villages within a very short distance--Pienza was 15 minutes, Montalcino a short 30 min. ride through gorgeous wine country with wineries a-plenty. Every inch of the countryside around our villa was breath-taking!
