I treated my wife to the Andrea Bocelli Concert at Lajatico, near Volterra on 20th July. We arrived at Villa Rioddi on the 17th - which I discovered by netsurfing - and found that it surpassed my expectations in all aspects. The quality and cleanliness of the accommodation, the very friendly (but not in-your-face) hosts, the excellent breakfasts and the relaxing pool area all combined to make a perfect break. We have been to Italy several times before (hotels, agriturismo, allbergo and rented villa) - following this trip I can honestly say that this is the best place I have stayed in. Upon departure after 6 days I was were asked to suggest improvements - the only thing I came up with was for more english-speaking channels on the TV system....but then what were we there for - definitley not to watch TV. However I did prize myself away from the pool to watch the German Grand Prix on Rai Uno- with a fine bottle of Vin Nobile de Multipulciano Reserva and the Hostess's husband for company - no english spoken - but lots of gestures and noise!
