The cottage has two floors connected by outside stairs; the first floor has a reception room with a balcony, which enjoys the morning sun, a lavatory, and two twin bedrooms with open view windows. There is a well-fitted bathroom including a bathtub and shower.
From the main entrance there is a reception room that leads down three steps into the dining area, the glass patio doors open onto the terrace, the ample fully fitted kitchen which includes a fridge/freezer, gas hobs, oven and dishwasher is to the right and has a pantry with a second fridge and washing machine.

Pros Die einsame Lage, die Aussicht auf die Hügel, schöne Terrasse und Pool, perfekte Ausstattung der Küche und vor allem der Charme des gesamten Anwesens. Sehr gerührt hat mich das sehr persönliche Fotoalbum über den Ausbau des Hauses. Man spürt mit wieviel Liebe das Haus wiederhergestellt wurde.
Cons Die Anfahrt über den nicht ausgebauten Weg war deutlich beschwerlicher als gedacht. Die Strecke ist sehr holprig und zum Teil sehr steil. Eigentlich wäre ein Vierradantrieb zumindest bei großen Autos von Vorteil.

Pros Sa vue son extérieur
Cons l'accès sur le chemin qui est impossible avec une grande voiture merci de le préciser aux prochains locataires ,la non propreté générale , des serrures et des volets récalcitrants, des fourmis en colonie dans la salle de bains à notre arrivée je pense qu'elle y était lors du ménage avant notre arrivée, pas de cafetière le wifi annoncé est en fonction de la ou vous vous trouvez dans la maison bref decu car la vue ne fait pas tout

Thank you for your comments. Care is needed on the bend of the road but it is passable for vehicles including trucks and ambulances etc...As in the description, Approach road - 1km adequate unpaved road - includes steep tar bend. The owner apologises that the cleanliness was not to standard. This has been reported to the caretaker and due care will be taken in future. The issues with ants and the shutters will also be checked carefully. The WIFI issue has also been reported to the local provider.

Pros The views are awesome, the seclusion and tranquility wonderful. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The gardens are very pretty The local walks (suggestions in the book in the house) are great.
Cons My elderly mother was frightened by the very long, steep and uneven approach to the property. We were pleased we had hired a car that could cope with it (only just with 5 plus luggage inside). We were cold in the evenings and would have liked there to be firewood available for use in the wood burner.
Local attractions Figline for Co-op. Greve for lunch. San Gimignano for day trip Train from Figline for day trip to Florence.

Pros It was a joy to return to this house again with a new group of friends. We love the peace and seclusion of the house at the end of the road and our second visit was as wonderful as the first. We enjoyed days by the pool, our daily espresso at the Alimentari in Lucolena (and discovering that it is 90 years old), and especially cooking local produce in the well-equipped kitchen and dining every night on the terrace with THAT view across the valley.
Local attractions The Alimentari in Lucolena is great for basic supplies and a daily espresso.

Pros This is an idyllic villa in a beautiful but very remote location.Tuscany at its best,wonderful views,super terraces to relax on and enjoy the delicious local fresh produce.Amazing wild life-lizards,wild boar,squirrels and every type of bug. Great walking and proximity to many medieval villages.Well equipped kitchen,gorgeous open plan dining and sitting area-,double doors everywhere opening onto the terraces.We loved the pool and wooden sun loungers.Kitchen has been modernized since photo.Lavender,roses and jasmine around the house very fragrant.A very special place we loved it!
Cons Great for us, however difficult to find initially and up the most steep and rough lane (about 0.5mile)-glad we had a hired car!This was my adrenalin rush every day up and down although we did get used to it. Possibly not ideal for young children or older folk as the walk up and down to the pool was also quite steep. No Shop or restaurant for several miles.A car is essential with this property
Local attractions We liked exploring Radda and Greve.

Pros Perfekte Kücheneinrichtung (sämtliche Geräte und ausreichend Geschirr vorhanden). Gute Aufteilung des Hauses (absolute Privatsphäre im 1. Stock). Wunderbare Zimmer und sehr schöne Badezimmer. Schöne Terrassen mit herrlichem Ausblick. Absolut ruhig gelegen. Schöner Garten.
Im Haus selbst hat es definitiv an nichts gefehlt.
Cons Der zum Haus führende Weg ist gelinde gesagt etwas abenteuerlich. Unseres Erachtens nach kann man hier mit dem ein oder anderen Auto oder als nicht geländeerfahrener Fahrer sicherlich Schwierigkeiten bekommen. Der beschwerliche Abstieg durch den Garten zum Pool und vorallem dann wieder bergauf zurück zum Haus ist nicht gerade komfortabel. Man hätte zwar mit dem Auto zum Pool fahren können, aber dieser Weg war noch schlechter, als der Weg zum Haus.

Pros Location remote, villa very well appointed, you can tell that it has been loved over the years by the owners. Amazing pool, everything you need to hand. Sitting outside in the evening with a wonderful view of the valley below. Even better than on the photos!
Cons There are some rugged steps down to the pool, which would be difficult for people with mobility issues. The monster flies around the pool are vicious and almost enough to put us off returning due to the size of the bite and irritation afterwards. The owners do give good advice about how to avoid, which is worth heeding.
Local attractions Nearby Radda very nice - amenities, traditional Chianti town. Florence only an hour away.

Pros It was very secluded and peaceful. With outstanding views. We stayed with our grown up children and all had plenty of space for our own independence. We cooked some lovely meals and really relaxed. It was perfect.
Cons Because of the position high in the hills the September temperature felt cool as it was several degrees cooler than in the towns lower down. It may have been better to go earlier in the season.
Local attractions It was fairly close to Siena and Florence which were both beautiful but it was very quiet in the immediate locality.
