What our guests have had to say:
Very spacious villa with outstanding pool and patio garden area which overlooked stunning views of the rolling hills, olive farms and vines. One of the most peaceful and secluded places Ive ever stayed in, a perfect Italian countryside break. We loved the main town Castiglion Fiorentino which was only 10 minutes drive away. It was a quaint little town, not touristy at all and we enjoyed dinners out in the piazza and wondering through the narrow streets of this walled town. There is also a lovely restaurant overlooking the valley and a family owned winery, both just 5 mins drive. The hosts were very welcoming and communicated well and always met our requests.
What a pleasure to experience Tuscany and enjoying this huge home for our family ( 10 if is). Overlooking grapevines, olive trees and some sunflowers still blooming in the fields below. Clean and welcoming, Good pre arrival communication helping us with our visits and tours. Very kind owners taking care if when we had little needs Good location and a place worthy of return
Good well kept large family villa - VERY large bedrooms and LOTS of space both inside and out. Views over the vineyards and groves of olives from the bedroom windows and from the garden and large private pool. Very pleasant outside kitchen and bread oven for pizza allowed for many feasts in the garden terraces which overlook the pool and are prefect to keep a watchful ey on the kids in and around the pool area. The closes shop is about a 2km walk, and there is also a restaurant nearby . In the town of Fiorentino many festivals, restaurants and activities to enjoy.
