We were part of the group from the Pacific Northwest that stayed at this Villa, what a wonderful place to stay there was so much room for 8 people and everyone had their own bedroom and bathroom. It was well equipped for what we wanted. Our hostess was so informative about the area and was so helpful to get us a van and a personal guide. We relaxed, took wonderful day trips. The cooking class was fun and informative. The meals were exceptional (it sure beats cooking) I would recommend anyone wanting to enjoy the real Tuscan experience to stay at this Villa.
