Our week staying in this villa could not have been more perfect. The villa is MUCH more beautiful in person than in the photos. The view from the pool is spectacular. Sunrise and sunsets here were something special. Patrizia was the most kind and warm host. She was always quick to reply to messages, and popped in a number of times throughout the week with home-made or bought snacks for us to enjoy. She was relaxed and kind, which made for a much more enjoyable experience than some hosts who are extremely strict. She also made home-made cakes, pizza, muffins, etc. which were all waiting for us on arrival. The house was so well-equipped with everything you could possibly need. We cooked a number of large group meals for 15 people and always had enough cooking space, utensils, plates, glasses, etc. We also really appreciated having 3 fridges throughout the house to store our groceries (and another bar fridge near the pool). The outdoor undercover seating area was the perfect place to share group meals. The pool area was AMAZING with sun beds and an umbrella, meaning we could sit out there all day long and not get too hot. You MUST book the dinner made by Patrizia's mum. This was one of our favourite meals in Italy (especially the ravioli). The setting was like a fairytale. Honestly we had the best week ever here, and hope to come back! Could not recommend more highly! One thing to note is that it was pretty much impossible to get taxis, so would recommend hiring a car/cars if you're going to stay here and want to be very active with exploring. We walked to Collina Dei Venti winery which was 10 mins down the road for a wine tour which was stunning, but there are no grocery stores etc. within walking distance.

Nido del Merlo was our amazing home away from home on our family Tuscan vacation. It has spectacular views of San Gimignano, farms and vineyards. Our granddaughters loved the kitties and were able to be outside to play on the beautiful grounds. When we arrived late, tired and hungry, we were surprised with food and wine, our hostess, Patrizia kindly left for us. She spoiled us daily with homemade cakes, biscotti or cookies. We also had a delicious anniversary dinner prepared by Patrizia and her mom, Maria, in a beautiful building next door. An abundance of Tuscan delights. We highly recommend this villa, but note that some of the pictures do not accurately portray the amount of bedrooms. And it now has a family room.
