I've waited a bit to write this review - in order to let conflicting impressions become more resolved. On the plus side is an incredibly attentive staff for whom, no request is too difficult. Without them, your stay would not be as enjoyable. The property is well maintained and in very good condition. The villa's location practically guarantees that you'll hear little or no auto traffic, and is quite pleasant to sit out under the large trees in the later afternoon with your favorite glass of wine.
We stayed in the Abbot's room which had a large in-suite bathroom and a typically uncomfortable Tuscan bed. Our first night was somewhat marred by my wifes' discovery of bed bug bites the following morning. While we have read about this problem, it was our first-ever critter encounter. Strangely enough, there were no repeat attacks.
The in-house Internet proved to be a perplexing issue of our stay, and one not unique to us - Apple computers and iPads, with rare exception, could not obtain an Internet connection. The technician was unable to help and the staff admitted that this has always been a problem for Apple computers - and (incidentally) that most of their customers used Apple computers!
Upon our return one late afternoon, we were simply too tired to think of going back out to find food, and stayed in - snacking on what snack leftovers we had about. It was at that point that we realized that we would have appreciated our time there more had in-house dining been an option.
Comparing our stay here with another property some 40km to the south which had a several pools, a tennis court, and an in-house gourmet restaurant (providing for fine dining under the stars), I would not rate this property as highly as others have.
