This place is amazing!!! There are no words to describe quite how beautiful and special this villa is. It's a beautiful Tuscan villa, perfectly laid out for indoor and outdoor entertaining and the kitchen is equipped with everything you need. Then there's the pool.... It's completely private, with incredible views. Also it's larger than usual standard and feels like a hotel pool, except you have it to yourselves : ) There are all some lovely bakeries, restaurants and food stores within an easy x-minutes drive. It was our perfect holiday and we'll definitely be back. On a final note, the hostess who looks after the place was so lovely and very helpful. She just added to the experience
Weekend agréable en Tosacne. La Villa est un endroit raffiné, les pièces sont agréables , un coup de cœur pour les la salle de bain (supers matériaux), jardin agréable. Cette villa est située dans une région qui mérite que l'on s'y attarde (pas uniquement pour les musées!) mais aussi pour une ballade œnologique en visitant les superbes propriétés.
