We were a large group of 12 people on this holiday. We stayed at Villa mondi (villamondi.it) and it was much better than expected. The pictures don't do justice for how pretty and awesome this place is! it's huge! more than enough space for 12 people. The courtyard was perfect for late night dining and wining. included in our stay we got our own pizza chef that made us pizzas of our choice in the pizza oven in the courtyard.
The pool is bigger than it seems on the pictures, and we spent several hours here. The annex down at the pool was very pretty and luxurious.
biggest drawback is that is says there are 12 beds, and 5 bedrooms. We therefor planned to take 2 of the mattresses in to the living room to make a sixth bedroom. In reality it was only 11 beds and some air mattresses. We made it work, but hopefully the owner either alters the information on the site, or adds one more mattress.
The owner was very helpful throughout our stay. he's not fluent in English but he brought a interpreter, so everything worked out fine.
you have to rent a car to live at Villa Mondi, since the public transportation is bad. We managed to get a wine tour bus to pick us up at a restaurant only 2 km from the premieres. Google maps says that it is 2 hours to Florence, but it's more like 1 hour. 15 min to Siena. 1,5 hrs to the beach if you choose the highway and not the shortest alternative suggested by google maps. The shortest alternative is often a country road with sharp turns and steep hills, forcing you to drive slow.
