We were a group of 7 and this was our first visit to Tuscany so we wanted some time to relax and soak up the beauty of Italy. When I booked Le Scalette I was hoping it would be as beautiful in reality as it was in the photos - it was. In fact the villa more than lived up to our expectations. It was superbly furnished and spacious enough for 7 adults for 6 nights. The villa itself is superb and Patrizia's textile and ceramic designs added a touch of luxury. Patricia herself was a wonderful host and she ensured that we wanted for nothing. While we cooked a few times in the well-equipped kitchen and enjoyed some wonderful meals on the terrace (because the weather was as perfect as the location) we did venture out to a few local restaurants. Patrizia was able to suggest places to eat which were always perfectly suited to our interests and she always made reservations for us after telling was to expect of the food. I think the meals we ate at her recommended restaurants were some of the best we had during our trip. While you do need a car to stay at Le Scalette the villa is so relaxing that we were often tempted to stay and do nothing. We absolutely loved our stay at Patrizia's villa and I have already recommended it to a friend who is travelling to Italy in 2019.
The property (semi-detached house) with the lovely garden is very romantic with the country style written all-over it! I loved it - since I am a detail-lover! It has a large working fire-place, the kitchen is small, but fully eqipped. The bedrooms are lovely, however it might be very hot during the summer as they are located in the attic (we stayed there in April/May and we had to make a fire and we asked for the central heating to be turned on). It is located on a very steep hill (18-20%), but it is worth to be up there as it is very quiet. The land-lady is extremely friendly.
