What were the highlights of your stay?    First and foremost our hosts Stefano & Mirella were AWESOME! The meals they prepared were top notch and made my guests very happy. The serenity and beauty of the villa and surroundings.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Excellent!
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? No a surprise because we were advised before trip but it would be nice to add swimming towels to the mix.
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? The entire experience was awesome. Dick was fantastic and our hosts in Italy were the best. We will use your services again - maybe even twice a year!

Nearest town

The nearest town Civitella in Val Di Chiana is only 4km from the villa. Here you will find a grocery store, supermarket, pharmacy and a bank. There is also a small selection of restaurants. The town was once fortified with walls and towers; the remains of one of the towers has had some restoration work done to it. Places of interest are the church of Santa Maria, the Rocca and the Palazzo Pretorio. The second week in September is when the Feast of Grape, Olive Oil and Wine, is held, and there is plenty of opportunity to try the local products.
