My family and I stayed in the Villa Leonardo for 1 week from 27/7/13 in the charming and sleepy village of Brenna which is about 5 miles from Siena. We had travelled from Pisa and Florence (Freinze) and decided to stop over to discover the 'real tuscany'. The villa is set on the edge of hillside village where less than 200 local Tuscans reside. Here, we got to experience the authentic village lifestyle. We did not have a pool but then you don't need one when you have a freshwater river and in the Nature Reserve which was less than 5 minutes away by foot. We all enjoyed the dramatic Tuscan scenery from our breakfast table and I would thoroughly recommend a car for great days out to some fantastic hillside villages. You can expect biscotti, freshly baked bread and croissants from the breadvan who arrives each morning at 10am to serve the villagers. In my opinion, we all needed to relax and get away from the stresses and strains of everyday life but meeting the locals really made our vacation a special one. We headed onto Rome for three days but will certainly return to Brenna for another taste of Tuscany.
