Pros Magical location. Beautiful house. Outdoor area excellent. The housekeeper was excellent, attending to broken wifi and washing machine very promptly, despite not speaking any English.
Cons All 5 adults on our group, occupying the three bedrooms with double beds, commented on how uncomfortable the beds were. We all suffered poor sleep as a result. A property of this quality should not be let down by cheap quality beds. The house was otherwise excellent.

Pros The position and the garden and pool / the outside areas were very well looked after.
Cons The interior is very dated and lacked style for the money. We nevertheless had great enjoyment from the outside.
Local attractions The nearby pizza restaurant and the restaurant and Carla's restaurant in Volpaia as well as Paula's cafe. The regular small restaurants in Radda were good too

Pros La situation géographique.
Qualité de l'accueil.
La propreté, l'équipement de la maison (électroménager, ustensiles cuisine)
Les terrasses ombragées
L'entretien extérieur. Magnifique jardin et piscine régulièrement nettoyée pendant notre séjour, tôt le matin.
Cons Le confort des couchages. Les matelas sont très, très mous, et ce n'est pas très confortable notamment en fin de nuit.
Local attractions Très bien situé : Sienne a 40min, San Gimignano 45min, Florence 35 min...

Pros The views, the open feeling of the grounds, ease of use all made Tuscany seem at our fingertips
Cons The downstairs bathroom, shared by two couples, was too small
Local attractions We found two restaurants we loved, the pizzeria just down the road and a more upscale restaurant in Rada, ten minutes away. Sorry don't remember the name but it was in the Michlein guide book

Stay: August 2012
Pros We were very impressed with the spacious gardens, pool and large BBQ area.
Cons There was nothing that we did not like about the villa. The only slight difficulty we experienced was upon collection of the key. The caretaker was very pleasant but did not speak any English. There were a number of forms which clearly we needed to complete all of which were in Italian so it was a little confusing but we managed to get by and complete the process. Perhaps a little information or warning about the key collection process would have been useful.
Local attractions The villa is equal distance from Radda and Castellina. Both are lovely villages with a number of good restaurants and shops.

Pros This was a beautiful, isolated farmhouse which we loved. We had privacy and the local villages were only 5km away in either direction.
Cons We did have problems with the wi fi connection which was necessary for contact with work. We recognise this was due to the isolated area but warning about the unpredictability would have been useful. There were masses of insects, which again was expected, but we were all bitten despite taking precautions.
Local attractions We spent time at both Radda and Castellina, both beautiful villages with friendly locals. We were spolit for choice with restaurants, all of which were of high quality.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Tägliches Frühstück und Mahlzeiten auf der Terasse vor dem Haus.

Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Sehr gut. Das Haus hat genau auf die Bedürfnisse unserer Familie gepasst. Der Garten und der Pool sind sehr gepflegt. Im Haus selbst hätte es ein bisschen sauberer sein können. Im Bad hatte sich schon ziemlich Schimmelpilz gebildet.

Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Leider war kein DVD-Rekorder wie angegeben vorhanden. Zum Glück war das Wetter durchgehend gut, daß wir ihn nicht gebraucht haben.

Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen?

What were the highlights of your holiday? Driving throughout Tuscany seeing the sights and enjoying the food and people were the highlights of our visit. When nearby the villa, we ate at the Castellina restaurants, enjoying the small village feel and delicious food. We stumbled upon a village celebration for children for Easter, we think, involving costumes and court jesters and arts and crafts, which the kids with us got to enjoy as well.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The villa is very nice. It matched the description and pictures on your website. It was very clean and well-maintained. The owner and caretaker were very pleasant and helpful, despite the language differences. They were friendly and willing to show all of the contents of the villa and how things worked. They were organized and flexible, willing to meet us on Friday morning instead of Saturday morning to accommodate our travel plans.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? There were no unpleasant surprises.
Do you have any other comments? We suggest that the owners consider having written directions in English (and other relevant languages), if possible, for how to work the dishwasher, washer, and central heating (maybe the stovetop and oven, too). They did provide written instructions in English for many policies and rules on what to do and not to do in the villa, but the booklet did not specifically contain any appliance instructions. Despite their efforts to instruct us verbally, though, (and our best efforts to understand), we never quite got the dishwasher to work properly. The washer worked fine, although it would have been handy to know in advance how long the process takes, given that it was about two hours and we are accustomed to machines that take 30 minutes to wash in the States. The heating system really cooked the second floor while we froze on the first floor. We're sure there was something that we didn't quite have set properly, and written instructions addressing the proper way to set the system would help. Also, the owner may want to lay in the second upstairs bedroom at night and listen for the "clicking" sound. We never saw an insect, although maybe there is something in the roof. We did not determine the source of the sound, although it occurred every night.

The owners have now put the manufacturers instruction manuals in to the villa for the various appliances so that guests can read them in whichever language they need. DD 04/09
