From the outside, this is a lovely old farmhouse and villa in a very pretty location. The owners are very welcoming and the extra little touches – a bottle of their own Chianti (delicious) and coffee – were much appreciated. We booked the larger villa which had the kitchen downstairs and the bedroom & living upstairs. The beds were comfortable and the central heating was very efficient. There was also a large selection of books and games if boredom sets in. The downside – a tiny spiral staircase is the only internal access from the kitchen to upstairs-not the best to carry meals and drinks upstairs to the living area. There was also a faint odour throughout which reminded me of kerosene or something similar. Perhaps the pre season cleaning? The wifi is limited to a very small area which we found frustrating. The access road from Greve to the villa was in desperate need of maintenance. Rocks and gullies are great if you have a 4WD but not so kind to the Audi. We decided once a day in and out would be the go. In summary, a lovely place to stay if you really like peace and isolation. Probably more suited to couples or large groups of friends.
