Situated on the fringes of a small village, and set in its own stunning grounds, this really does promise something out of the ordinary. In practice, it is not quite that. Our room in the Villa Florentine was a little on the small side, but pleasantly furnished, the bathroom however was poorly maintained, and the shower refused to stay in place (a fairly basic maintenance item that should have been reported by housekeeping). The main building is smartly furnished, but like other reviewers, we were unconvinced by the restaurant situated around the indoor swimming pool. The food was good, without being outstanding, and the service was neither, being inattentive and unsmiling. Breakfast next morning seemed a bit of an after-thought (a modest help-yourself buffet in the bar) and the service again routine and unsmiling. Wi-Fi was free and worked well. It is handily situated for a trip to Giverny (Monet's Garden), and Paris is not far away.
We did not feel overcharged at 140€ per night, but still thought that there was room for improvement. Worth considering in the future in case they get their act together!
