Great Villa to rent. We took the entire main house, which can be subdivided into three units. There were two kitchens in the house, and they were able to accomodate a group of 12 with special permission.
It turned out to be a great location for access to local Tuscan towns and villages, as well as Florence, Pisa, and other larger Cities.
Olive goves, vinyards, small medieval towns. Access to Tuscany by the nearby Florence-Siena highway.

We had a wonderful time. The villa is beautiful, with spectacular views. Our point of contact, Gloria, was very kind and sweet. She even brought us herbs from the villa garden to use for cooking.
There isn't any one thing that stands out...it was all so perfect! There were six of us at the villa and we had more than enough room to sit back and relax, take walks, or lounge on the patios, by the pool or in the BBQ area. We enjoyed breakfast watching a beautiful sunrise and dinner with spectacular sunsets.
The views are spectacular. The vineyards and olive groves and surrounding villas and farmhouses are beautiful. It's peaceful and quiet and very relaxing.

Everything was perfect---from my first contact with my Rentvillas Travel Advisor who was extremely helpful in helping me find a villa, to the lovely villa we stayed in for one week.
The villa was well equipped, and the property managers were very charming and helpful. The pool was lovely. One morning I woke up early to swim and do yoga by the pool and I had a visual delight of seeing the hot air balloons hovering over the Tuscan hills.
We were close to Tavernelle where we did our grocery shopping. The property was very close to Florence; it only took us about 20 minutes to drive to Florence, Pisa, and Siena.
