Only downside would be the mosquitos but that comes with the territory- Not an issue with the villa. Highly highly recommended.
Arrived without any hassle by car to be greeted by Selena- she was wonderful- so helpful, friendly and chatty.
The room, a double room by reception was lovely- down a few steps to a cool room, blue colour scheme- You can tell a lot of thought went into the rooms- very authentic.
The rest of the Villa was class- the gardens, the swimming pool, the view- the homemade wine and olive oil. You can walk the farm grounds, through the groves and vines. We took the bikes for a spin until we met the hill and then turned back to get the car! Didnt get a chance to see the wine cellar but did sample 2 of the wines- excellent.
The staff, especially Selena know how to look after the customers-
The kitchen was great for breakfast. you can work away at your own convenience, with the buffet laid out. The brochures and area guides we were given were excellent, showing all the tourist stops and spots within the area, along with directions and maps- very very well done.
Selena recommended the Villa's sister restaurant La Vasca in the town of Montevarchi- A must visit- from the outside it looks a bit plain at daytime but the food is top notch. The big fridge of steak as you walk in, still drooling over it! We had pasta and steak/osso bucco after. Best pasta by a mile.
