My family and I were very happy with our stay at Barbara's beautiful home. The pool and the view of the surrounding hills, including San Gimignano was more spectacular than the pictures showed--and since we were there in the middle of a heat wave, we spent a lot of time there!
The villa was a great base for our family of 6--we felt very comfortable there. The a/c was a real plus--yes. you have to pay extra for it, but we were able to be very comfortable when it was very hot outside. We had a meal there our first night, which was very welcome after a day of traveling. The proximity to San Gimignano was also a real plus. Barbara is a very gracious host, who also did a pizza making day with my family. Overall this is a place we would love to return to again.
