Our stay in the villa in Radicondoli was probably the best holiday ever.
We visited Tuscany in a big group of 9 people. (Big by our standards anyway) The villa is very spacious and easily accommodated all of us. The setting is very private and we only heard and saw other people when we wanted to, which suited us to the ground. In fact, the villa is set in a Nature Reserve area and we saw deer near the house on a number of occasions.
The swimming pool is surprisingly big and deep (something to consider if you are thinking about visiting with small children, they would not be able to stand in the pool.) As we are all adults, we were well pleased with how deep the pool is - diving is no problem. The pool (and the Jacuzzi - incidentally best visited with a glass of Prosecco in hand) were major assets of the villa - both look over the hills of Tuscany - fabulous.
The hot weather and consistent sunshine meant that we took most of our meals outside.
We used the villa as a base to visit Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra.
We were very well looked after by the housekeeper Paolo and his wife, who provided us with helpful information.
The villa's strength - its private location - is at the same time its main weakness. It is necessary to have a car to get around. We used a big supermarket in Poggibonsi for shopping - trips there would usually take 40minutes either way. The villa was difficult to find initially. The road leading up to the villa gets smaller and smaller and the final bit is not even tarmacked. The final approach is not for the faint hearted and I would hope that the road gets tarmacked eventually.
Once up there, it is well worth being there.
For a private holiday in a luxurious setting in the heart of Tuscany, I would highly recommend this villa.
We enjoyed everything about our stay in Randicondolli. The Villa is a litle hard to find and off the beaten track but once there it was perfect for our family holiday. Well loolkjed after by the house keeper and had everyhthing we needed.
