As we arrived at the villa, we were stunned by the beauty of the place: the view of San Gimignano especially during sunset is amazing, the pool, our appartement «Rita», was cute, spacious, very functionnal and cozy. We had a warm welcome by Virginia who was very nice and helpful.. and Dante, her funny cat!
The location is perfect : a 15-20 walk to the city through a nice cedar path or 5 minute drive to the multiple parkings just outside the city. It is also close to the Chianti region which we visited.
We had one breakfast and one dinner there, both were delicious, especially the homemade lasagna. We had the chance to taste their wine (white and red) and their olive oil.
Our only wish: staying there longer! We'll have to come back! Thank you for your hospitality, it was the highlight of our trip in Italy. Grazie mille Virginia!
