We enjoyed the peace and quiet although we were the only ones staying on the property. Not sure how we would have felt if we had to share. The staff were very polite and friendly. .
Only problem was a very expensive guided tour to Montepulciano and Montalcino with a guide who knew absolutely nothing other than to speak English. She was early 20's, had never been to the cities and didn't drink wine. We paid 120 euros per person for six of us and basically had only transportation.
Very accessable to everything but you must have a car. Would recommend something small since you have to drive everywhere.

It was all sooooo spectacular! Arriving from Rome after traveling overnight, we were pleasantly surprised by the mature tree-lined drive at the property, and the pheasants who made the golden fields their home. The house was everything we needed - comfortable and well-equipped we were even able to hook our IPODs up to the CD player! The creme de la creme, however, is the pool. Set on a private knoll overlooking open fields and distant hills, it was the perfect place to start and end our days of sightseeing. The view is to the west, so the sunsets were incredible. You don't get an idea of the size of the pool from the on-line photos - it's huge. There were just 3 in our party and the house next door to us was vacant while we were there - so we enjoyed the entire property alone. All 32 chairs lining that pool, all to us. It really is spectacular! Having air conditioning throughout the house was awesome! We were there the first week in June and already it was in the 80's. We got a LOT of use of the pool!
Nothing. If we had traveled with children, the fact that there were not bath tubs, showers only, may have been a problem. I was surprised there were no bidets in the house, too.
You can't beat the convenience. It is literally right off the Superstrada. The book they put in the villa describes very well the surrounding towns, restaurants and shopping. The proximity to Florence is unbeatable, too! Less than 45 minutes drive.

This was fabulous place. the setting--on the top of a winery overlooing the Pisano Mountains--was breathtaking. Great service by Mathilde who provided many extra services for us. This place far exceeded our expectations.
The house was clean--tasteful and high quality furniture. Everything matched. It was not a house that was pieced together haphazardly. There was a sense of style to all the rooms; there were eight of us in the house and we had plenty of space--both inside and out. The outdoor pool refreshed us after a hot day of sightseeing. The landscaping made us feel we were aristocratic Italians. We felt overall we had a great value for the money. Eating outdoors for breakfast and dinner was pleasant.
No screens on the windows--but no one in Italy has screens. Air-conditioning didn't work in two rooms--but it was quickly remedied. Kitchen could have used more light space. Pool hours could have been longer in the evening; it does't get dark until almost 10 pm. these are very minor complaints. This place far exceeded expectations.
The small towns surrounding the property were much larger than expected. the vistas from the room were breathtaking. The great advantage was its location near the superstrada.
