Beautiful villa with a commanding view on the edge of a small and very quiet village. We were 8 adults and the villa was more than big enough to accommodate us all comfortably. Although there is no pool, the spa pool was a great place to relax at the end of the day looking out over the sunset. We would stay there again if back in the area.
We stayed at the villa in December 2016, and it was fabulous. From the outside it seems quite modest - located in a really beautiful little Italian hill top village with ancient stone walls and cobble stoned alleyways, but as soon as you enter you'll see what a find it is. Sunny, bright and spacious, it has amazing 180 degree views over the surrounding countryside. Even in December we had amazing golden sunlight. The interior is very modern and looks like it's been recently renovated - the bathrooms and kitchen are all gorgeous. No shortage of bathrooms either - there was a WC on the lower floor where the living areas are, as well as en suites or a shared bathroom for each of the other bedrooms - plus the laundry. The bedrooms are lovely and very comfortable and most have views out over the countryside.
We flew into Pisa and hired a car (you could also fly into Florence) - which worked really well, and meant we could explore the local area easily. I'd recommend stopping at a supermarket before you get to the town and picking up some supplies, as there are some great shops on the trip from Pisa airport, but I'm not sure there's much in the town itself (especially since we were there during the holiday period).
This is a great place to go with a group - there's a fireplace in the lounge room, the kitchen has a large dining table and everything you need to prepare your own food. There's also a little local restaurant a five minute walk away where you can eat out - really good, simple, delicious (and very reasonably priced) local food.
The villa is spread over three stories, with big marble staircases so if you have small children or can't manage stairs it's probably not ideal, but for a group of adults it's just perfect. One of my favourite parts is the hot tub - it's in a separate building just through the garden, and was a perfect way to relax after a day of walking and exploring the local area. The garden itself is beautifully maintained and there's a BBQ and an outside dining table that would be perfect in the summer.
If you're planning a stay in Tuscany, I highly recommend this place - absolutely stunning, I can't wait to go back!
