The villa lived up to the description we had been given. It was large, clean, well equipped and sat in its own spacious grounds. The pool was lovely. There were 8 in our group and we all felt that we had plenty of space, with the outside area of tables and seats being particularly accommodating. With two older members in our party (both in their 80s) the two bedrooms and bathrooms on the ground floor meant they could be accommodated without them having to climb stairs. Mr Rossi, the owner, could not have been more pleasant and helpful. He was easily contactable by phone if you needed him. Camucia is just a short drive away (5 mins) with a decent supermarket, shops for bread and a nice cafe and gelateria. Cortona is a bit further (15-20 mins, you look at on the hill from La Poventa's garden) and is well worth visiting.

Lovely villa, clean, plenty of space, Tuscan charm but with modern bathrooms and there was a nice outside eating area.The garden and pool were great, private, and with a view of Cortona.The instructions for reaching the villa were good. We went out of Camucia on the SR71, you go past a large Coop on the way to the villa. Mr Rossi was very helpful and easy to reach. Cortona is only a short drive and is lovely but Montepulciano was our favourite. We had a fantastic meal on the last night at Osteria del Teatro, a great end to a great holiday. We just rang Mr Rossi and he booked us in and sorted a taxi to pick us up. Our only problem was the weather, not good for Italy and my granddaughter would have loved to have use the pool more. more
