A really lovely 14th C villa - modernized in the 17th C. The staff were lovely and super helpful. Wonderful views of the Tuscan countryside from the terrace and (infinity) pool side.
A beautiful place to rest and relax - but still only 30 minutes from Florence and not much further to Siena, San Gimignano etc
Room was large and lovely. Separate rooms for the shower and loo - both small but functional. Wifi not reliable everywhere but they do have relays if you really need it.
Breakfast and dinner on the terrace. Dinner slightly chaotic but came together in the end - and tasted great.
Infinity pool is a bit smaller than the pictures make it look - but nevertheless lovely. Great view as noted above and surrounded by a wonderfully fragrant rosemary hedge.
Stayed for 3 nights - would have loved to stay 3 more
