Stay at this villa and you won’t be able to tear yourself away from the spectacular views across Tuscany to the Appennine mountains beyond. The architects certainly made the most of this modern property’s prime position in the landscape, focusing it on those views by creating a huge covered terrace with attractive red-brick arches on the ground floor, as well as a large balcony, reminiscent of a loggia, on the first floor. When you do venture out, you’ll find this is an ideal base for exploring wine country, with gems such as the medieval village of San Donato on your doorstep and the road between Florence and Siena close by.
This villa is a good choice for a multi-generational family or group of friends with its spacious accommodation, which includes a separate annexe. Inside, clean white walls lend the property a modern feel, with wood furnishings and luxurious rugs adding warmth. There is an internal balcony overlooking the lounge-diner, and guests in the first-floor bedrooms have doors onto the balcony. Aspiring chefs will enjoy creating tasty meals on the brick barbecue (book one of our recommended chefs to prepare dinner when you fancy a night off), before settling down on a sofa on the terrace to admire the other great view this property affords – the night sky.

Our Thoughts
We think this is a fabulous retreat for a large family or group of friends looking for a peaceful haven in which to enjoy each other’s company while also having some space. And of all our properties, this villa has some of the most remarkable wide open views of the Tuscan landscape. Conversely, the separate annexe has a very private furnished terrace backing directly on to an olive grove, which might create a peaceful escape for grandparents travelling with family. The fact that the pool is completely fenced makes this property a relaxed choice if there are small children in your party.

Geweldige plek om lekker tot rust te komen. Helemaal vrijstaand en schitterend uitzicht. Veel plaatsen om te zitten, zowel in de schaduw als in de zon, uit de wind etc.
Sanitair mag beter/schoner. Eigenaren doen wel hun best om het naar je zin te maken.

Anfahrtbeschreibung ist falsch, die Abfahrt ist nicht nach ca. 2km sondern ca. 4,5 km.
Schlüsselübergabe hat gut geklappt, Roberto und Frau sind sehr hilfsbereit und bemüht.
Tolle Lage mit herrlichem Blick.
Heizung musste aufgrund der Außentemperatur zeitweilig angestellt werden, hierzu fehlt eine Beschreibung, damit Roberto nicht extra kommen muss.
Kleine Probleme/ Mängel wurden von Roberto sofort beseitigt.

Thank you for letting us know. We checked with the owner and the directions should read that the exit is after about 4.5 km. We have amended the instructions.

Die Villa liegt an einer sehr schönen Lage mit super Ausblick. Die Loggia ist genial (Sonnenschutz für die Mahlzeiten) und der zusätzliche kleine Pool für die Kinder ist ideal. Der Coop ist sehr nahe und somit besteht die Möglichkeit, täglich einkaufen zu gehen ohne grossen Anfahrtsweg. Die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit, wir wurden sogar zum Arzt begleitet.
Die Bäder sind stark renovationsbedürftig und die Pools sollten öfters gereinigt werden (wir waren es uns bisher gewohnt, dass der Pool täglich gereinigt wird). Auch wäre es von Vorteil, wenn die Schlaglöcher auf der Zufahrtsstrasse aufgefüllt würden.

the location, the seclusion, the views, the facilities particularly the 2 pools. It was roomy well equipped.
overall hard to fault the villa
Internet needs to be resolved. Whilst it did not spoil our holiday it would have made life a little simpler
We did have some minor problem with the property gates. I think one of the keys did not work these too well.( only 1 side worked sometimes withthe key)
We suspect the annex may have a bat problem. We only went down there once and there was a smell of bat droppings. We actually saw a bat asleep in the shutters. I am not sure you would want use the annex to sleep in.
It would be useful to have a more detailed information "book" about the villa i.e. what to do with Rubbish and recycling. Also how to use some of the appliances.
Local attractions we visited the restaurant on the right on the road into San Donato which was excellent. Also we visited the pizzeria in Castellina in Chianti. The first one on the the right. Again the food was excellent as was the service and setting. Very good value for money. Also the Black sheep hotel next to belvedere. The setting, staff and food were again excellent.

Thank you for your review. The owner has checked the WIFi and it is working. It sometimes needs rebooting when there is a problem. The annexe has been checked and cleaned on departure. The owner would have wished to have resolved any issues for you during your stay. Thank you for your feedback though - it is always very helpful.
