Nous étions 5 amies et avons séjourné quelques jours en Toscane. La Villa est sublime, spacieuse, pleine de charmes. Les équipements, surtout la cuisine, sont haut de gamme. Le jardin est grand et permet de profiter de déjeuners, pauses ensoleillées au calme. Quelques œuvres atypiques s'y glissent délicieusement à côté du caractère traditionnel. Les chambres, la piscine, ... tout est grand et impeccable. Les hôtes sont très chaleureux et veillent au petit soin. Leurs sourires contribuent au charme de la maison. Un vrai havre de paix pas loin du Chianti, et tout près de Florence ou Sienne. On se sent chez soi version grand luxe : je recommande grandement !
This beautiful villa was perfect for our Italian vacation. We couldn't have asked for better views, they were simply gorgeous and the location is such close proximity to Florence and Siena. The family style dinners arranged by A. and E. (our hosts) were delicious I've already requested recipes! The local wine and olive oil is such quality we enjoyed far too much of both. I love the décor, it's fresh with a wonderful mix of modern and antiques and the abundance of windows let the beautiful Tuscan countryside in. Our weather didn't allow pool time but all the terraces and pool area are lovely, beautifully maintained and the perfect spot for reading, having coffee and/or wine or just relaxing after a long day of touring. One highlight was the concert by two local opera singers we enjoyed in the chapel on the grounds of the villa. It was very special! The beds are quality and our bathroom was private and roomy. I cannot wait to return to this little slice of heaven.
