The property is beautiful and we felt the pictures, particularly of outside, did not do it justice. So private and quiet yet within very easy reach of small village shops that catered for all our day to day needs. Twenty mins drive away the larger supermarkets were easily accessed. We were two families, 7 people and the kitchen was a little cramped if cooking inside for everyone with limited storage space to put things away but we were on holiday and really not a big deal. We enjoy cooking so tend not to go out to eat too much and so we had lots of lovely fresh fruit and veg to store from the local shops and the fab veg patch in the garden that we were encouraged to access.
The thing that made this week for us was the swimming pool, it was incredible. No harsh chemical but all natural rock salts the pool was big and inviting, set in the most beautiful and well maintained gardens with no one nearby. We loved it. With only 6 sunbeds and 7 of us we took it in turns not to have a sunbed and it usually worked out OK. We had planned to venture further afield to Florence, Perugia etc but found it too hot and based ourselves at the villa. We did make it to Montepulciano and Cortona for late afternoon visits and both of these were memorable outings and worth a visit. We would all go back to the Villa in the future, there were lots of places to explore and its on our list for future holidays.
