This was our first year at Casa Botticelli, although we know the area very well, and it is in a fantastic location. The house itself was clean and comfortable and the outside space was excellent with a garden, a shady terrace and easy access to the lovely pool. There is no aircon but there is a ceiling fan in the bedroom, which we appreciated.
Local attractions Radda is the nearest town and it is well worth several visits as there are a number of excellent restaurants there. Don't bother going to Gaiole, it really isn't worth a visit when you have Florence, Siena, San Gimignano etc to see.
