Antica Sosta is a wonderful Tuscan villa located in a small collection of 10 houses nestled around a quiet crossroad a short distance from the road between Florence and Volterra. This was originally a staging post for passing travelers and now has become a single family owned hamlet.
The villa has a perfectly manicured garden surrounded by a fence and tall hedging. To the back of the property is lovely, sparkling oval pool perfectly positioned to relax during the warm Tuscan days. Attached to the villa and overlooking the pool area is a pretty terracotta paved, covered terrace furnished with an iron table and chairs.
Antica Sosta is on two floors. In front of the house is a large gravel parking area, which leads to the front door. Inside is a small hall from which stairs go to the first floor. To the right of the hall is the open plan dining and living area.
In this bright and spacious room there is a large table that can seat up to 10 people comfortably. huddled around a fireplace are two armchairs while a large sofa which can seat four people completes the furnishings. Double doors lead out to the back garden and pool area.
Passing under a rectangle arch there is hall off which is a laundry room. At the end is a country style kitchen, fully equipped. It has a large wooden work table in the centre of the room with fridge and separate freezer to one side. Next to the traditional Tuscan stone sink is a terracotta work top, while a large oven and gas hobs are to the other side of the room, here more work space is provided by a typical marble topped table.
Next to the kitchen is a bathroom with shower and a double bedroom. This room is done in a pretty, dark peach colour and faces the front of the property. It has a lovely handmade bedspread. The room is furnished with a large wooden wardrobe, a small chest of drawers and a table with chair.
From the entrance hall grey, stone stairs lead to the first floor where there are four bedrooms and two bathrooms. At the top of the stairs are two large arched windows which overlook the pool and onto the views beyond the villa. To the left is a one and a half size bed bedroom done in pale green colours. It's a bright room furnished with a table with chair, a wooden wardrobe with mirror and a matching chest of drawer with a black marble top. A door opens onto a Juliet balcony which looks out onto the garden.
The second bedroom on this side of the floor is done in a soft blue. It is furnished with a writing desk with chair and a wooden wardrobe with a couple of drawers. Double doors open onto a Juliet balcony which looks out to the front garden and the crossroads. Next to this room is a large bathroom  with shower.
To the other side of the stairs are another two bedrooms and a bathroom with tub with an overhead shower. The first of the two bedrooms is done in a pastel pink, this has a small one and a half size bed. It has a pretty wardrobe and a desk. The double doors open onto a Juliet balcony and look out to the back garden and pool.
The last bedroom is a large double which can be converted into a twin room if requested when booking. The double doors open onto a Juliet balcony and look to the front of the villa. The room is furnished with a large wardrobe with matching chest of drawers. Like the rest of the first floor there is the typical Tuscan style ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
Only one of the double bedrooms can be made into a twin room. This must be requested on booking otherwise the bedrooms will all be double.
There are mosquito screens on all the windows except in the bedrooms and the other arched windows.
Antica Sosta is well maintained villa both internally and externally. In the front garden there is a small trampoline with netting and a table soccer for the younger members of the party.
There are neighbouring villas and although there is a high hedge the garden and pool can be seen from the neighbour's upper floors.

Pros Das Haus ist liebevoll und gepflegt eingerichtet, gleiches gilt für das Grundstück.
Es ist alles sehr sauber und selbst der Pool ist immer picobello.
Cons Die Unterbringungsmöglichkeiten für Kleidung sind nicht so üppig in den Zimmern, gerade wenn man 14 Tage dort ist, aber man arrangiert sich. Die Wände zwischen den Zimmern sind sehr dünn, denn man hört alle Gespräche in den Nebenzimmern.

Pros It was like being in a family home. Very comfortable and very well equiped.
Cons For comfort i gave good because it really needed more comfortable seating for the evenings especially if it is cold. There are not enough chairs for 10 people. The Villa is advertised as child friendly. This is not quite true as the pool is not fenced off or alarmed. Also it would have been nice to have had a cover on the pool in the evenings to help warm it up. It was so cold we never really used the pool. Obviously to have it heated would been wonderful.
Local attractions The B&B just up the road Celtardo.

Pros The villa was really beautiful clean and large enough for 8 people. The garden was full of roses and other flowers. The pool was cleaned every morning. Thanks to free WLAN we could use our mobiles to search places to visit and find the routes.
Maria cooked for us once and the food and service were excellent.

Cons During those two weeks the weather was very hot and at nights we missed air conditioning. The villa was in the middle of nowhere and if you needed something you had to drive to Castelfiorentino. Of course we knew this in forehand, but we would have appreceated a small crocery or small restaurant nearer the villa.
Local attractions Mostly we cooked ourselves and cannot give any restaurant names. We shopped at local Coop. There we got everything we needed. We visited many small towns and Pisa and Firenze. The situation of the villa is very good and those towns are not too far by car. You don't like to drive, You Can also use the Train.
