Pros The Villa San Giovanni was awesome. It is exactly how we envisioned before arriving there. The house represents the rural style of homes in Tuscani. The pool is of good size and maintained very well. We enjoyed our two weeks immensely and would return to visit again. The area as a whole is very picturesque and very beautiful. The restaurants in the area serve great food and make for a very enjoyable time when dining out. We can highly recommend a stay for anyone there...you will not regret it. The owners were friendly and always available when needed.
Cons The website does not show how close the other homes are to the villa and that the villa is part of a three family home-complex. The neighbors are however friendly and very helpful. One thing that we did not like is the fact that the neighbors have a dog that stays outside in the garden area and barks a lot, especially early in the mornings.
Local attractions The owner of the home provides an information booklet that also lists all the restaurants and sight s to see in the area. The restaurants for the most part serve great food and are affordable. The restaurant by the lake has great food but also great scenery.

Pros Très belle et agréable maison ancienne avec une jolie vue sur la campagne environnante du fait de sa position perchée. Les chambres sont très vastes avec de beaux plafonds peints. C'est de plus une maison très fonctionnelle. La piscine est très agréable au calme et entourée d'oliviers. Maria est une charmante hôtesse qui nous a reçu avec beaucoup de chaleur et de gentillesse. La villa est idéalement située pour visiter les grand sites touristiques toscans : Florence, Sienne, Pise, Lucques, etc...

Pros Le lieu, la vue, le calme.
La piscine dans les oliviers.
La situation : la villa est facile d'accès, et les sites les plus beaux ne sont jamais très loin.
L'accueil de la propriétaire.
Cons Déception question piano : sa mention nous avait attirés, mais l'instrument n'est absolument pas en état d'être joué. L'équipement de la cuisine un peu juste et vieillot.
Local attractions Volterra, magnifique ! Et San Geminiano... Florence, bien sûr, facile d'accès. Toute proche : la Fattoria de produits bio délicieux.
