Family with older children
MARLBOROUGH, United Kingdom

Stay: June 2016
We had a wonderfully relaxing week at an incredible location. Truly stunning gardens, excellent pool, amazing views and the whole property is spacious and very well maintained. The owners - Franco, Maria and son Mattia (and Lola their dog) - were delightful and very helpful. Happy to recommend and we hope to return.
Local attractions Good local train service to Florence.
