The location is perfect for day trips to Cortona, Arezzo, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Perugia, etc. The first time we went looking for it we thought we might be going the wrong way, it's up a tiny road in a quiet residential area, with great access to main roads. It's situated in the quiet hills with a spectacular postcard view of the Tuscan valley. The Villa is rustic, quirky and endearing. The furnishings make you feel like you are staying in someone's home. Our room (number 10) was spacious with a gorgeous view and the only one with a door leading out to the beautiful communal terrace. Our room was equipped with a blow dryer, big towels, soap, shampoo, mini bar, safe, bidet, television (only Italian language) and a large bed. They had a bar and wifi in the lobby but once we connected downstairs, we could access it in our room. There is a pool and free parking. Free breakfast in the morning with breads, fruits, eggs if you wanted them, juice and any kind of tea or coffee. I have to say however, the thing that made the hotel so special and memorable to us were the hosts, Angelo and his wife. The entire staff was very accommodating but Angelo made you feel like you were more than a guest, you were a dear friend staying with him while enjoying his beautiful country. He regales with stories and recommendations, directions, anything you need, he will see to it that you are happy. They are the most hospitable people you can imagine. Be sure and have dinner in their restaurant, the food and Angelo's wine are out of this world and one of the best dinners we had in Italy. I'm hoping they put their recipe for the Tuscan bean and barley soup on their website it was sublime. Seriously, we can't go on enough about the warm and kind people that own and run the Villa. If you love getting to know people, their culture and the surrounding area, do yourself a favor and stay here for an authentic Italian experience. Believe what all the other reviewers say about the hosts, it's true!
