Excellent location, great house and very clean and large pool. Staff is available to fix problems if any. Only weak point: temperature is too high inside the house... close to 30°C.

Thanks for your review. So glad you enjoyed your time in Tuscany - even despite the heat wave. We will place more fans upstairs and downstairs, in case this summer's high temperatures are repeated! All the best - Kristina
