We stayed in Scuola, as part of a wedding. The booking arrangements were simple, efficient and very welcoming. The villa was a good price, especially split between 3 couples and there was plenty of room for us all to share very comfortably. The grounds are huge, with lots of wildlife, privacy, stunning views and in a superbly central location for... More

Anyway we can provide a good service of taxi thanks to the several taxi drivers that live in the surrounding area, but a car gives more freedom.

We stayed in appartment Guardialo for 2 weeks. The appartment was not very clean and there was always something like a sewage smell. The toilet is located in a very small area, and people taller than 1m80, can hardly sit on it, because their knees are hitting the opposite wall. Not a pleasant situation. Several appartments are located in the... More

Dear 19Travel, thanks for your commentary. Guardiola is one of our "smallest" apartment and it is true that the toilet is not so large, but it is also true that you have not to spend all the time of your vacation in the bathroom. Guardiola has a very beautiful and private outdoor area, it is close to the swimming pool,... More

The property is set in fantastic grounds with truly breath-taking views over the Tuscan countryside. The properties are well spaced out with 2 large pools,... More

“Wi-fi doesn't work in apartments farthest from villa and check-in/out point.”
 of 5 bubbles MMBBE99, 23 Oct 2014 | Read review
“All the apartments are very different, with different advantages and disadvantages but they are all well furnished and typically Tuscan. I would say La Caccia has one of the most incredible views and is a good size and layout, it also boasts good access to the pool and has a fabulous, covered terrace and BBQ area. The Villa is incredible, all the rooms are ensuite and are pretty similar in terms of layout and size. La Scuola is very spacious but I wouldn't recommend the terrace for small children, would be fabulous for winter or if you don't like to sit outside.”
