We arrived into Vicchio by train assuming we would be able to find a taxi. After realizing this wasn't so, we called the villa and they were quick to send a driver to pick us up. Had we known we would have pre arranged transport as it was offered by the resort at a reasonable cost.
The drive up to the resort was spectacular. The views from the resort across the valley are breath taking. Many walking and biking trails to explore.
Staff was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. Dinner service is worth the price. Amazing views coupled with delicious meals that showcase the olive oils are fantastic.
A great experience overall. Highly recommended for a different experience in the Tuscany area.
