"My dream did come true of staying in a villa with the most beautiful view, peaceful, close to two small towns (not many tourist) and close to trains to take us to Siena, Florence and Rome. The villa is clean and very well kept! Patrizia, had a wonderful tart and wine waiting for us, which we enjoyed every morning! We requested dinner for the first night, prepared by Linda was just perfect. Of course we ate on the covered patio-did I mention how amazing the view was? Linda was very helpful with pre-trip questions and suggestions of cities and restaurants to visit.
We loved the Cetona, just a short drive from the Villa, where we visited a wine/cheese shop where the owner gave a a tasting! (There are also some really good restaurants) One week was not enough to enjoy the villa and everything else there is to see! Thanks Linda and Patrizia for making this a trip of a life time for me, my sister and friend."

"We rented the villa for a group of 14 friends and family members. The configuration of the rooms into various "suites" was ideal for our group, and provided a very useful mix of private time in the suites as well as time with the group in the common dining and living room areas. The location of the villa was also ideal as a central location for trips to San Gimignano, Sienna, Orvieto, Assisi, Florence, Cetona, Chiusi and many other small hill towns. We rented four cars and had a wonderful time exploring the Tuscan/Umbria countryside. As noted in other reviews, the WiFi is inconsistent. I'd also strongly recommend either bringing a GPS unit with an installed Italy map, or renting one from your car rental agency. It was priceless and aided our explorations immensely!
Linda was fabulous in helping us with our stay. Her advice as to things to see and towns to visit was invaluable, particularly since our visit spanned two Italian national holidays. The connections she has made with local wineries, restaurants and shopkeepers was also very valuable.
In summary, our stay went without a hitch. We'll be back...."

"This villa was a wonderful place to base our visit to Tuscany/Umbria. It had ample room for our 14 guests. The villa owner /manager and his co-workers did an excellent job ensure the facilities and the property was in good order. Also, the meals they prepared for us were excellent. The American contact organized a wine tour which was one of the highlights of the trip. Will and have recommended the villa to others. Note: for those wanting American coffee bring your own coffee as well as #4 coffee filters, we could not find any #4 filters in the local stores."

Charming, secluded beautifull villa in tiny village in Tuscan hills
"What a charming most beautifull villa in a tiny hamlet in the Tuscan hills. Surrounded by the Fighine fortress (now privately owned) a few homes and a darling little churche (not in use but can be visited). All rooms are very well appointed and comfortable with a working fire place and relaxing living room area. The kitchen has all of the necessary cooking tools and appliances in addition to a washing machine. The two bedrooms had their own shower equiped bathrooms and were imaculately clean just like the rest of the villa. To our surprise a high speep wifi had just been installed and it was a bonus that we did not expect allowing us to keep in touch with family and friends back home. Considering that it was late in the season the pool had been removed. The grounds and gazebo with table and chairs were well maintained including a BBQ. There are basically 2 dirt road accesses to the hamlet with pretty villages within 20 minutes to half an hour with great restaurants (very reasonalble) especially Daniella in Castiganio di Bagni. Great base for day trips in both Tuscany and Umbria.
The info provided by both the property manager Linda and the owners Grazzia and Cesare was very helpfull in deciding on our daily itinerary.
Crucial to the enjoyment was the easy communications with Linda the property manager, always responding to our queries within a day or two. The owners were very nice and helpfull. When we could not operate the washing machine Cesare was there the next morning to fix it.
We were also fortunate to meet Linda as she was in the area to arrange a wedding. She organized a cooking class for us at another villa. It was fun and gave us a chance to exchange info with other guests. Thank you to Linda, Grazzia and Cesare for making our vacation memorable.
I would recommend this villa for 2 couples or small family wanting privacy and to relax."
