It exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful week there and hated to leave.
The location was convenient to visit many areas of Tuscany with an easy drive.
All of the amenities were first class.
Rebecca (the manager) was extremely helpful and friendly.
We loved the view and the many areas to walk. The pool was beautiful.
The convenience to the highway and grocery shopping.

We all loved this property, including our 3 teenage girls, and hope to return! We will definitely recommend the property to others. Both of the property managers were lovely and very helpful. We accidentally left a piece of luggage on the platform at the train station in Florence, and Roberta called Tren Italia to find out what we should do--we just picked it up the next day at the Baggage Claim area. We also had a great experience one night at a local restaurant, recommended by the managers. All of the local people we met were kind and helpful, but this was almost unbelievable!
The location was very convenient for day trips through out Tuscany and Liguria, but at the same time it was peaceful, with a nice view of the surrounding vineyards and Tuscan hills, and with a number of good local restaurants for dinner. The villa was spacious and comfortably furnished for a family of 5. We loved the pool after mornings of sightseeing. Although, there were three other families in the building, all with children or teenagers, the property did not seem busy or crowded and there was no problem with noise. We would love to go back.
The kitchen is very small. We used the ironing board as additional counter space when needed.
The property was very close to the FI-PI-LI, which made day trips very simple. Nonetheless, the estate itself was very private and peaceful, with no views or sounds of the highway. There was a lovely view across the vineyards and hills. There were numerous small villages close by, which offered necessary services such as a pharmacy and a plethora of good restaurants. Our usual daily plan was a 45 minute or so trip to a scenic spot Florence, Lucca, Siena, San Gimignano in the morning, returning to the villa after lunch for swimming, resting, and a good, quiet meal in one of the nearby non-touristy villages. We could recharge in the evenings for the next day of sightseeing.

We rented three properties, and we loved this one. It was more of a small apartment complex, but we were the only ones in our building, and nothing but positive comments on the professional staff and the quality of the place. We really loved it. We used the local town for purchasing food for cooking; the kitchen had excellent cooking items. The outside seating area was outstanding; the bedrooms were great, and the environment was outstanding. Would go back to this place in a minute. Least expensive of the three villas, but really enjoyed it. The staff were very concerned about our stay, helped us with travel and followed up with answers to questions.

This was honestly more wonderful than represented. It provides the perfect blend of being close enough to train stations for getting to Lucca, Florence, Pisa, Napoli or easy driving distance to countless wonderful sites, or serene enough for just lounging by the pool.
It's hard to choose, beginning with the entry drive, everything is fantastic. The pool overlooking the vineyards is not to be missed. The fresh bread delivery every morning, right to our villa was an unexpected treat, too.
We never did figure out how to use the phone other than to call the main reception. Thank goodness for international cell service!
The small towns, markets and their restaurants. The people in Montopoli, Pontederra, San Romano and everywhere else were so very friendly and open in spite of our murdering their beautiful language.
