Left on 09/12/2013 for a stay in June 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Sep 12, 2013Stayed Jun 2013
Beautiful villa renovated with taste. The welcoming was very warm. Everything is high quality and the owners are very pleasant and generous. We were very happy to meet them. I highly recommend this place especially if you like luxury and elegance. The location is very good, close to Lucas, Pisa and Florence. Great choice.
