It was a "bucket list" item to vacation with friends in a villa in Tuscany. We were originally 4 couples but eventually whittled to three. This villa was spacious and would have accommodated all of us nicely but with only 3 couples we had more than enough room. We were warmly welcomed by Leonardo and Sarah to this amazing place with a view to die for. The house was very well equipped and lovingly cared for. Beds were firm and comfortable. The kitchen area was wonderful for gathering as was the large living area. The restaurant suggestions were perfect-don't miss the local pizzeria on Friday or Saturday. This location offered us easy access to all the usual spots: Greve, Sienna, San Gimignano, Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, etc. Leonardo conducted a marvelous olive oil and wine tasting; it was great! The villa itself has such a rich history; it made our stay there that much more special and the olive oil and wine at the vill were amazingly good. All in all-a very memorable vacation!
We had a fantastic week's holiday staying in an apartment at Villa Castellaccio.
Leonardo, the owner, was attentive and very helpful but not overbearing.
The apartment was well appointed and very comfortable.
The Villa is well located for the major cities and towns of the region (Florence, Siena, Arezzo and Montepulciano to name but four) and we took day trips to these on most days.
However, our lasting memory will probably be the couple of lazy days spent by the poolside at the villa with the its breathtaking scenery and complete tranquility followed by a juicy barbecued steak in the evening.
All in all, a brilliant find and we are looking forward to returning.
