This is a villa stuated in the countryside about 1 1/2 miles outside the small town of Imprunetta. We attended a lovely afternoon and evening celebraton event at Villa Cesi this May. There is a nice patio area outside for drinks and cocktail snacks. A sit down meal was served inside. One side of the room is open to the elements. This is very attractive, with candles burning at night, but take something warm to put on. Our meal was nice, with an empasis on traditonal tasty rustic Tuscan fare. Overall it was nice, with a local rather that lavish feeling.
It is convenient to stay overnight if you have been celebrating, but I really recommend that you dont make it part of a holiday experence! The villa hosts a constant stream of events which means that all of the outside areas, where you might like to sit in the sun, are full of party or confeerence guests everyday. There is no space, service, facilities (or peace and quiet) for other guests. We found our room rather utilitarian in style and noisy (thin walls and tnoisy tiled floors!). You really do need a car if you are staying here!
(We paid E100 per night)
The restaurant just opposite the bottom and to the left of the Villa Cesi driveway is lovely. It has a great wine list, English speaking waiters and a refined decor.
