Pros The beautiful little house we were in (v spacious for 2), the stunning views, the wonderful scent of jasmine, the huge saltwater pool where we spent many relaxing days. Most of all, our kind and generous host, who even took us out for dinner one evening and with whom we spent many enjoyable evenings drinking prosecco and watching the sunset. It really was a little piece of paradise where we relaxed completely and forgot about the rest of the world.
Cons Nothing, it was perfect, I only wish we could have stayed longer!
Local attractions We had a lovely evening in Cortona and went to a very nice wine bar called Barrachi. Our host took us for dinner in Pienza, where we had incredible Tuscan tapas. Mostly, however, we stayed by the pool because it was such a perfect place! We went to Siena for the day after we left (about a 40 minute drive), which is definitely worth a visit as it is stunning. San Gimignano is also nearby and worth visiting.

Pros the location was excellent - convenient for a lot of trips out
the hosting was very comprehensive- both in the material and literature supplied and the superb knowledge of Mr Barra who was most charming
excellent Wi-Fi which for us was essential as we were working alongside our holiday
small extra touches were a constant source of delight to us
the gardens and particularly the roses which were in full bloom were delightful, pool a good size
Local attractions Too many to list but all available in the comprehensive folders available on site. We loved Arezzo as it was not so full of tourists and Pienza was charming. Lake Tresemino - around 15 minutes away was lovely.

What were the highlights of your stay?    The friendly owner and family, the grounds staff, the gardens, the nice pool, the quietness, the views and the sunsets!
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The villa was very comfortable and just right for a single person or couple. The location was great and very convenient for visiting interesting sites and towns that were nearby. The villa was clean and seemed to be well maintained with all the equipment/conveniences. The gardens, pool and views were fantastic.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? I was a bit disappointed with the strength and reliability of the WiFi. With the cost of communications, it is becoming more important to be able to use WiFi with Smart Phones to basically eliminate these costs. Other than that, nothing unpleasant at all.
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Everything was just great and I enjoyed my stay immensely. My only suggestion for the owner is to improve the WiFi and perhaps replace/improve the quality of the mattress for the bed.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Seeing all the famous sights in Rome, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Colossum, St Peters etc, then Venice for our Gonola ride and the beautiful Orchestra's in St Mark's square. But without a doubt just relexing around Il Rattoppo and the pool over-looking the valley.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Put quite simply, no words can do any justice as to how wonderful this villa is. From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, we just would wander around the villa saying to each other how beautiful the villa and surrounding area was.
We went to Italy for our honeymoon, spending 3 days in Rome then 3 days in Venice and finally a week in Il Rattoppo. The honeymoon just got better and better with each location, and we couldn't have wished for our final week in Italy to be any better.
Luciano phoned us at home before we even left England to check if we needed any information about places we wished to visit while we were there so he could get it ready for us. He phone us again while we were in Venice to ask us if everything was ok and give us some final details about the area around the villa, ie supermarkets etc, and to explain that himself and Gisela wouldn't be there when we arrived because they had to go to France for a family wedding for a few days, but said that we would be met by their neighbours Nadia and Felice.
Upon arrive at the villa Nadia and Felice greeted us like long lost friends and then proceeded to show us around the villa and grounds, explaining where everything was. Inside the villa Luciano and Gisella had left us a freshly made loaf of bread and homemade Il Rattoppo wine to greet us, and as a special treat because we were on our honeymoon, a bottle of sparkling wine and some freshly cut roses from the garden, which was a lovely touch and very welcoming.
Later that week Luciano and Gisella invited us to dinner which was fantastic with homemade local Tuscan cuisine.
We got treated like great friends throughout our stay at Il Rattoppo, and will be returning to Italy again sometime in the future and we will not be even bothering to look at any other villas to stay at, for us now there is only one choice, Il Rattoppo.
Bella Tuscana
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Only the prices of food and drink in Rome and Venice
Do you have any other comments? Can't wait to come back to Italy
