We were a family of 10 with teenagers and younger children. (8 and10)
All of us were simply in awe when we drove into the villa and saw the accomodations. It is like a feature property in Travel and Leisure magazine.
Modern kitchen, bathrooms, individually controlled AC in the bedrooms and spotlessly clean. It appeared that we were the first to use the villa. The view from the terrace is beautiful and we had Mattisse cook a meal for us which we ate under the arbor looking over the hillside. How could it be better?
Beautiful scenery--close to many attractions. It is halfway between Florence and Siena, Pisa not too far of a drive, San Gimignano Greve in Chianti.

Fabulous! Beautiful views, so many different places to take it all in. The Villa is centrally located for travel to Siena, Florence and of course Monteriggioni. The Villa has elegant furnishings. We had to address one of our companions as "Lady" beginning shortly after our arrival.
The many outdoor sitting areas to have morning coffee or evening wine and take in the view! We used it all, the pool area, the terrace, the tree-lined front garden and even the area just off the kitchen.
I would recommend a visit to Monteriggioni. An incredible walled village with great vistas, shopping and restaurants.

Wonderful location. Beautiful house and property. Extremely helpful owner and caretaker.
The 18th century house is a pleasure to inhabit. The location is perfect for access to cities and hill towns, not to mention fattorie and restaurants--you might mention a nearby restaurant, Vallechiara accross from Lilliano, 10 min. from Vianci. Wonderful setting and food, but not obvious.

I will come back. It so easily became HOME for me, that I felt when I left that the next guests were intruders! Again, it was so much more than I imaged in every way.
EVERYTHING! The villa was more enchanting and scenic than I could have imagined. The rooms were spacious and comfortable. Each bedroom comfortably served our guests. The kitchen, though small and simple, was often filled with happy people and delectable smells. We had many meals on the spacious veranda. The pool area was also larger and so enjoyable. People used it in the AM and in the PM. The friendly caretakers provided an added delightful authentic experience. She watered all the plants daily, and he helped with the pool cleaning. The Italian people in the towns. Though it took several times to receive their hearty smiles and greetings, it was priceless when it happened.
The LOCATION was excellent. 1 hour from Florence, 20 minutes from Siena, and in great proximity to so many gorgeous locations.
The countryside, which was magnificently viewed from all windows as we are on top of a hill. I came to love the Tuscan countryside more and more. No pictures can do it justice. I shall attempt to show you our pictures! The food was always outstanding. I choose the more simple dishes, but all were made with such fresh ingredients. We all laughed about how we could never eat in an American Italian restaurant again.

We loved staying at the villa. The pool was lovely, and the housekeeper extremely friendly.
It is a magnificent house, very beautiful and spacious enough to allow for privacy even with a large number of people.
The surrounding area is spectacularly beautiful, and the location of the house allows for easy day trips to nearby towns and villages. We went to Florence, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano, and the Chianti villages, among other places.

The villa is heaven. It was a lovely and gracious home that exceeded our expectations. I was amused at how much of a home it became for the eight of us even though it is so grand and none of us ordinarily inhabits a villa! It was large enough so that we all had a sense of our own space. Since we were there in October, we did not use the pool, but it is a lovely part of the grounds.
