Our family stayed for one week at this beautiful countryside villa & it surpassed all our expectations. We were greeted on arrival, given a tour of the property to ensure we would know where everything was kept & invited to use the vegetable patch & fruit from the orchard at any time. The setting of the property was simply stunning, a picture postcard with lavender greeting us along the driveway, a lovely garden & a pool that you just never wanted to leave. The BBQ was set in the garden overlooking the vines of the winery & to watch a sunset or eat a meal outside in this location was simply breathtaking.
The villa was recently converted and was therefore modern & new in all respects. All rooms had air conditioning, perfect to escape the summer heat. The bedrooms were large, had comfortable beds & linen & very nice new & modern bathrooms. Traveling as a family with children, the washing machine was also a huge plus & the property also had wifi so you could stay connected to life at home should you want to.
The location of this villa is one of the huge highlights, to go sightseeing & explore nearby cities/towns, we found most places to be no more than an hour away, (Assisi, Siena, Appiano, Florence-1.5hr)The closest village is only a few minutes away for staples of groceries, but 20mins away is a larger town with a full grocery store- co-op, Lidl, delicatessen etc. Cortona is also only 20minutes away for sightseeing. We would return to this villa in a heartbeat, it was simply perfect in every way & felt it was a privilege to stay.
