“We recently stayed in this beautiful Tuscan Villa. This Villa is perfect. It's so elegant and yet comfortable. There are 9 rooms with en suite bathrooms, a dining room, living room, kitchen within the Villa and Guest House. Outside there is a pool, jacuzzi, shaded pergola with a comfy couch set, sun loungers and a dining table for eating on the terrace. The views are spectacular. The best part of our stay however was the food prepared by master chef Patrizia and sous chef Antonella! I can't even begin to tell you how amazing they both are. Not only was the food delicious but Patrizia constantly went out of our way to make sure we were taken care of, had fun and well fed! The wood fired pizza is not to be missed. The al fresco dining is a wonderful treat in the summer. The house manager Cristine was super nice and helpful and the house was cleaned daily and was always pleasant to return to after adventures through Tuscany. We will absolutely come back and have made friends for life!”
