Review date:
Stay: August 2014
Pros This was a fabulous holiday, not least because of the excellent hosting by the villa owner, Stefania. We arrived late into Pisa which combined with a slow hire car pick up (never use Avis again) meant we didnt get to the villa till after midnight. Stefania still met us with a smile, some groceries to keep us going and some home grown tomatoes. This set the tone. The villa is recently refurbished. It is spotlessly clean and whilst the beds and pillows were a little hard for our taste, the linen and general fittings were all in excellent condition. The pool is very close and I was initially concerned about noise, In fact, this did not present a problem at all. The owners live on site and were able to provide advice on restaurants and even made us some home made pesto - which the children loved. The road to the villa is a little steep in places, but not to the extent that you need a 4*4 - we didnt and were fine. The villa`setting is superb, with excellent views and breath taking sunsets. I hired a mountain bile from the local village and ther tracks from the villa were challenging but great fun. The family dogs (small, extremely friendly) and horses give the villa a very calm, home from home feel. We loved it and will return again. Good value for money, overall, highly recommend for families.
Cons Please note that this is a small villa, two bedrooms, with a functional but basic kitchen, no dishwasher. All of this is covered in the details so were not surprised.
Local attractions Restaurant - Bocco Del Vino - Montalcino - amazing views, great food and very reasonably priced.
