"The other reviewers have not exaggerated about this exquisite house and the lovely countryside surrounding it. The photos do not do it justice. It is larger and much more grand than it appears. It is stunningly beautiful inside and out. The views are incredible, and the peace and quiet were only interrupted by the sounds of the children playing in the pool.
As a group we totaled 4 adults and six children ranging in age from 6 to 14. The house was incredibly spacious. Had we wanted alone time, we could all ten of us have found it simultaneously. As it was, we spent most of our time in the well equipped and very pleasant kitchen, and in the pool. The kitchen looks small in the photos, and it is compared to the other rooms, but it's actually fairly big. My daughter baked a me a birthday cake from scratch in it! The pool is spectacularly large, perfect for the kids to play and for the adults to swim laps - sometimes at the same time! The house has air-conditioning in two of the 5 bedrooms, and screens on many of the windows - luxuries you don't find in many houses in Italy. All of the other bedrooms have fans. The three full bathrooms upstairs were completely adequate for all of us. The smallest bathroom is actually ensuite with one of the air-conditioned bedrooms. I liked the privacy that entailed and also the fact that I wasn’t taking over a larger bathroom from the rest of our party. The bedrooms are enormous, and the beds are very comfortable. The house was cleaned every other day which was wonderful considering how large it is, and that there were 10 of us. The washing machine worked perfectly and made it possible for us to travel lightly. There is also a ping pong table outside! The owner's very thorough guide about the house and the area was an invaluable resource. We took advantage of many of her recommendations.
This was our first trip to Tuscany, and the house and surrounding area couldn’t have been more perfect for our two families. I was not at all ready to leave after one week, and I would love to come back and see it in every season. If you’re a large group, I highly recommend staying here. It may seem a bit expensive, but split in half by two families (who in a hotel would need at least two rooms each) it’s really quite reasonable, especially for what you get!"
