Amazing. Need a car though. Secluded retreat but easily accessible to all the regions attractions, shops etc. generous accommodation, perfect for summer with the private pool and courtyard with the most spectacular views. Owner close by but left you completely alone. Cooking facilities adequate. Bed firm, bathroom good size. Stunning and perfect for couple. Recommend ++. Only downside, wifi advertised but only available if you sat outside the owners front door. Very frustrating if you needed to work or get travel information.

“Perfecto!!!”
Reviewed 15 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

A gem. This property was perfect for our holiday and the plans we hoped to realise owing to its situation within easy reach of Volterra, Pisa, San Gimignano, Florence and Chianti.
Facilities in the apartment are adequate and in good condition. The bedroom is spacious and well laid out. Bathroom/wetroom ideal. Patio and pool are fantastic and the views from both are stunning. Whilst the drive in to the apartment gave us some difficulties owing to road closures and a later than expected arrival, Brian and Christina were perfect hosts in assisting us by telephone in guiding us in. Brian provided us with some provisions due to our late arrival and having missed shops and restaurants as a result and we were extremely grateful to him for doing so. The seclusion the apartment offers cannot be overstated and even allowing for the proximity of the owners' residence so close, the privacy they afford guests is excellent, whilst they are on hand should you need them. All in all this was one of our most enjoyable and memorable holidays and the apartment and the surroundings were a huge part of that.

“Beautiful, peaceful, idyllic”
Reviewed 16 October 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We spent a week at this amazing apartment and loved every minute. The views are spectacular and it was fantastic to have our own pool for the week. The apartment has been nicely kitted out and is very comfortable. It has a decent kitchen which was great as i did a lot of cooking, inspired by the fantastic regional produce. A car is a must as it is quite a rural location. There are some great restaurants nearby in Volterra and loads to see and do in the surrounding area with Siena, Florencea and San Gimignano all reachable by car.
Brian was very friendly and helpful in suggesting local places to eat and things to do. We went on some walks in the countryside keeping an eye for wild boar, but didnt see any - much to our disappointment. We hope to return next year to what is a truly idyllic tuscan retreat.
