This was really a special treat for us. The pictures do not do it justice. The villa is beautiful and has many amenities you will need. The owner was very helpful, with little English but has a friend to help with anything she did not understand. There are so many reasons we all loved this villa: Location: Although tucked away in a quiet country setting, the villa is easy to access and was a perfect base to go off an explore. The added benefit of the train station in Castiglion allowed us a relaxing day trip to Florence (euro 12 return!). The accommodations were outstanding. We had a party of eight and had more than enough room. Spacious bedrooms, amazing sitting room, all the little touches - all so welcoming. The home was immaculately clean and offered more than enough for our need it really was a special treat to stay in a place as beautiful as this. The garden and pool are beautiful. We took full advantage of both the shaded terrace and the lovely patio areas around the pool to eat and drink.The whole experience wonderfully relaxing and enjoyable. The closest shop (supermarket) is a about half a mile to walk, or there are numerous other quaint shops in the old town of Castiglion plus many other supermarkets around. Restaurants too were all good value, family friendly and high quality. Our favourites: Muzicone in the town, Antica Pieve along the main road.

A warm welcome, and helpful guides. The villa was all we wanted for our two weeks to explore this area. The added bonus was the Palio horse-race and the Medieval festivals in the local town of Castiglion Fiorenitno,. Lots to see and to do. The setting of the villa has lots of authentic character, a warm homely feeling for us to relax. Having come to Tuscany before, it was also nice not to have to travel on bumpy white roads! A walk to the supermarkets and generally goo access to everything. This gave us peace and quiet, but good reach for towns and sightseeing. The local train station also a good option if you want to go to Florence without a drive. just on an hour and, not so expensive (euro 13. return ticket !!). Good and authentic restaurants in the area (lots of Italians - always a good sign). We were happy here and no doubt we will return in a year or so when next visiting Tuscany
