Pros We asked for a secluded and quiet place and we got one. Away from everything. the Villa is spacious and the grounds are nice too. Pool is big and fine for children.

Lisa and the Tuscany team were extremely helpful and on the end of email.
Cons Not much to not like except wifi is a bit on and off as you might imagine. Also judging by previous comments, the downstairs shower still hasn't been fixed in so far as it floods the floor. Mosquitos are a problem here, so take a very strong repellent and you should be fine. This is not specific to the property though and the same everywhere in this region in the middle of August.
Local attractions Food in Tuscany is pretty rustic, so don't expect your traditional Italian type food. There isn't much around to be honest, but you can drive to Florence (really pricey), but beautiful, or the little town of Siena, which is lovely. Pisa is a drive away too. The small town is pleasant enough for a few of the local restaurants, but the main bit is the café. They have loads of ice cream there, so the kids loved it. It's open late too and the owners are really friendly. Check out the Pizza takeaway in the square. Freshly made Pizza, and its good. The Coop store will serve all your grocery needs.

A member of the To Tuscany team has recently visited the villa. The shower is now fixed, the Wi-fi is fully working and there are mosquito screens on every window. The owner will also have a full pest control done to rid of the mosquito problem.

Pros Sehr schönes und gepflegtes Haus, tolles Ambiente.
Einmal hatten wir kein Warmwasser, das wurde vom Vermieter innerhalb von 20 Minuten repariert.
Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter/Verwalter war generell sehr nett und problemlos, alle waren sehr bemüht und flexibel.
Cons Das Wasser im Pool war - wohl aufgrund der großen Hitze - ziemlich trüb. Das WLAN funktionierte nicht.
Local attractions Florenz, Siena

Unfortunately a large leaf blocked one of the filters causing the pool to be cloudy, the WiFi was down due to a thunder storm, it was repaired as soon as the owner was notified.

Pros La maison est décorée avec beaucoup de goût, des bibelots et des objets personnels, c'est un peu comme si on partageait la vie de la famille du propriétaire. Elle a beaucoup de charme et nous nous y sommes sentis très bien. La bonne ambiance des repas pris à l'ombre sous la tonnelle, la beauté du jardin qui est magnifiquement entretenu et bien sûr la belle piscine, si bonne a plonger dedans après une journée de visite et de chaleur. Nous avons également apprécié la WiFi tout juste installée.
Cons Le charme dégagé par cette maison se mérite par une certaine tolérance envers son âge et sa situation entourée de nature, elle ne convient peut-être pas aux personnes qui ne supportent pas araignées et autres petites bêtes. L'utilisation de la très belle piscine est légèrement entravée par un robot nettoyeur un peu encombrant.
Local attractions -Papposileno à Cavriglia, cuisine authentique dans un cadre magnifique et service très attentionné -Osteria di Montegonzi à Montegonzi sur une colline avec vue magnifique à quelques km de Cavriglia. Service très agréable.

Pros We liked everything about the Villa. The Pool, the location, it's cleanliness, the village and the relaxed atmosphere with the chickens etc. Having the owners living nearby was more of a positive than a negative as they were very warm and friendly people who were nice to talk to, very helpful and really went out of their way to ensure we had a great holiday.
Cons Nothing!
Local attractions Picollo restuarant was very enjoyable, owner spoke good english and was really helpful, this restuarant was within easy walking distance to our villa. Siena was an awesome place. Enjoyed the smaller vineyards nearby.

Stay: August 2012
Pros Its location, the tranquility, the accomodation and the pool were all very good
Cons Mosquitos! There is a real problem at this property because I have never experienced so many and such aggressive mosquitos by the pool side. They would even sting you on the face while swimming. Even with repellant they would find the chink in your armour to sting you. Both my partner and I took over 50 bites each and three weeks later, we are still itching. I would not return to the property because of this, such was the scale of the problem
Local attractions We had lunch or dinner in Radda & Gaiole in Chianti and also visited Arezzo

Pros Es lag sehr ruhig, zum entspannen perfekt. Sehr schöner großer Pool.
Cons Die Küche war etwas sehr verschmutzt, d.h. die Schubladen in der Küche klebten auch das Besteck und die Teller waren stark verschmutzt, so das wir erstmal die Teller und Bestecke erst mal in die Spülnaschine stecken mussten, und uns auch niocht getraut haben die Schubladen zu nutzen.
Local attractions Florenz ist jedem sehr zu empfehlen, eine wunderbare Stadt.
