We had a wonderful stay here during our time in the Tuscany region! The villa is beautiful and exactly what I pictured for a stay in the Italian country side, but still extremely convenient to all the other locations we wanted to visit. The drive to Florence is 15 minutes, Pisa is one hour, Siena is an hour and twenty minutes, and Cinque Terre is an hour and a half. We saw it all while using this beautiful property as our home base. We also took a cooking class with Arianna, the owner of the property. I HIGHLY recommend this if you have time in your schedule. She is a lovely hostess and the meal was wonderful! The only negative to the property is that the heaters have a hard time warming such a large space. We went in early April and the house was still quite cold downstairs. In the summer and early fall it would be perfect though!
