Pros We adored every single part of this villa. I believe there should be a special feature about it in the broadsheets! Spotless, stylish, tasteful & comfort itself. The owners couldn't have been more welcoming! Even the local stray (but extremely well-fed) cat welcomed us every morning by the door, much to my 6 year old son's delight! I speak enough transactional Italian to survive and the owners speak a tiny bit of English but we communicated well. The rooms are huge with 3 stunning bathrooms and a well-equipped kitchen should you wish to cook a risotto or some linguine! The view over the vineyards is truly breathtaking and the villa grounds are magical, lit up at night so that you can sit out and enjoy a lovely grappa or whisky. Our trip was to celebrate my 50th birthday and I will remember it forever. The organisation by To Tuscany prior to our trip had been seamlessly executed between themselves and Lucia and Gabriele, the owners. Nothing was too much trouble for them. The couple live in the villa above with their small daughter, Carolina, and whilst they were accessible and helpful whenever needed, were not intrusive at all. The villa is central to the main place sof interest and a huge supermarket (PAM) is a couple of minutes' drive away. We are people who like comfort, space and cleanliness. This place beats every place we have ever stayed in, and we are pretty hard to please! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to Lucia, Gabriele, Carolina "Conkers" the cat and to TO TUSCANY for a gem of a holiday! ("Conkers" the cat now has a loving home with Gabriele's mum, you'll all be glad to know - so even he had his dreams come true!!)
Cons there isn't anythin negative to say about Villa Paradiso (Villa Carol).
Local attractions San Gimignano takes you breath away and is a short drive. Chianti, Pisa, Siena (gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!) Volterra is staggeringly beautiful - very mediaeval, as are all places in the region. We loved the market at Poggibonsi (Tuesday am) which was just like being on the set of the cookery programmes of Jamie Oliver or Nigella Lawson, selling fruit and vegetables twice the size, variety and flavour of our paltry offerings in the UK! There are lots of restaurants to choose from and it's difficult to recommend one because they ones we visited were all great. Trip Advisor have an extensive and trustworthy list if you need a recommendation. We will be planning our return for Summer 2014!

Pros Villa Paradiso was a clean, well equiped and comfortable home during our stay in Tuscany. It offers a lot of space and privacy for a relaxed holiday. Beautiful garden is perfectly maintained with a nice views on the town below, especially during the night. There are a lot of sunchairs available throughout the whole garden and pool offers a nice refreshment in the hot days. Unfortunately we did not use the jacuzzi during our stay. TV has a wide variety of channels and WiFi is available in and around the house. Kitchen is new with all the necessary equipment. Every bedroom has its own bathroom. Owners Gabrielle and Lucia are one of the most pleasant and hospitable hosts we ever came accross who also make a great pizza.
Cons We could sometimes in the morning hear owners in the upper floor walking around or doing the dishes. Villa is not very soundproof but it is not disturbing.
Local attractions Very good location for making daily trips. Most of the attractions are easily accessible within 1 hour with a car. There is a supermarket nearby (3 minutes by car).
