Pros The fresh mountain air, quietness, wonderful pool, excellent outdoor grill, space both in rooms and kitchen. After busy work period, this is all you need.
Cons The only minus I could think off was the curvy way to grocery, and even that was not so bad.
Local attractions Wine tasting possibilities in various farms near by any road. Greve in Chianti, Radda in Chianti, day trip to Cortona or Siena and of course Firenze. The restaurant nearby called Ristorante il Borgo Antico Greve in Chianti Figline Valdarno is definitely worth of trying out. Try Porchini grilled, tutti belissimo.

Pros We liked the layout (indoor and out) and location within a small village. The villa kitchen was well-equipped. All the bedrooms were of a generous size and the bathrooms of good quality. Views are lovely The outdoor space offered a variety of options and the multiple seating areas are ideal for a varied group. The Friday and Saturday night pizzeria in the local village is fantastic. And the play park is a godsend if you have toddlers, as is the local shop and pharmacy.
Cons The pool was freezing and meant our two under 2s didn't make as much use of it as we hoped. The lack of soft furnishings makes the house noises very noticeable and a little sterile in some rooms. The very nearby church bell rings the hour and half hours - this takes some getting used to, especially at night.
Local attractions The local pizzeria and bar/cafe/ice cream shop. Greve offers the main attractions. Wine tasting and lunch at castello verranzo was a lovely experience.

Pros we liked the whole setting of house and pool and garden.
Cons There was a problem with the water supply from sunday afternoon to wednesdaymorning. The keyholder rang the water supply company and she told us about a well that is on the property but that could only be used for garden watering. Those two days we could not use the shower or the washingmachine, which was something we did not expect to happen when you look at the rental price.

Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Ein wirklich sehr schönes und gepflegtes Haus! Bisher unsere beste Adresse in der Toskana!
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Das auf ihrer Homepage empfohlene nur einen Kilometer entfernte Restaurant hielt das Versprochene leider nicht! (Schlechter Service und das Essen war nicht schlecht, aber wirklich nichts außergewöhnliches. In einer einfachen Pizzeria (direkt am Turm) in Figline haben wir wesentlich besser gegessen!)
