We had a wonderful and relaxing time at the villa. It is a spacious well equipped vacation home that offers a lot for a wonderful time in Tuscany. The unit is quiet and there are some paths to walk on as well as the road. I highly recommend this villa.
Local attractions Radda has the best market but they do close in the afternoon. Bar Dante was a wonderful restaurant. The shops there too are very nice. We used the tour company To Tuscany twice - a vineyard tour - FANTASTIC and a walking tour in Sienna. Highly recommend both of them. A Cooking class in Volpaia at the winery was also a highlight. San Gimignano was a great day trip and very interesting and beautiful.
