La Macchia is an estate of 8 villas located in two buildings all within easy reach of Pisa, Volterra and Florence. The hill top position provides all the villas fantastic 360 degree views of the countryside covered with fields, forests, vineyards and olive groves. 
The sparkling pool is located to one side of the houses in the perfectly maintained garden. It is surrounded by sun beds and umbrellas which look out towards the rolling Tuscan hills that are beyond the estate.
The six rental villas are located in two buildings. The owners stay part of the year on the estate and have a dog with them.
There is a resident family and caretaker in a villa which is in a detached building a short distance away from the rental apartments.

Stay: July 2015
The views from the balcony of Ginestra were beautiful. We liked the location as it was remote but still we were able to easily visit many towns easily. The pool area is very relaxing, clean and the loungers are very comfortable. Anything we wanted was available to us, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful.
Local attractions We really enjoyed visiting Volterra.

Stay: June 2015
Prachtige ligging, mooi uitzicht. Heerlijk zwembad met prachtig uitzicht. De hartelijkheid van zowel de eigenaresse als van de beheerder. De uitstekende staat van onderhoud van het complex.
De vele muggen en vliegen. De banken in de zitkamer zijn alleen geschikt om op te slapen, niet om op te zitten. Daardoor zit je steeds op een keukenstoel.
Local attractions Restaurants zijn in directe omgeving niet aanwezig en dat was een tegenvaller.

Owner Comment: Dear Peter and family, First of all, thank you for the compliments. Unfortunately, mosquitoes and flies are a recurring problem in very hot weather. But I have planned for a treatment. I hope this will be efficient. I'm sorry you found uncomfortable the sofas for chatting or watch TV. I can add maybe a couple of armchairs Best regards
