“Perfect Villa to Tour Tuscany”

My family of six--two grandparents, two parents, two children (11 & 13) stayed at Podere La Villa for a week. The villa was beautiful, spacious, and comfortable. Each bedroom had its own bathroom with excellent water pressure in the shower. Ilaria, the owner, had all the necessary amenities for us: large towels, soap, shampoo. She even had stocked the refrigerator with milk, orange juice, butter, yogurt, bread, and gave us a bottle of the family wine. The children enjoyed the large pool after a hot day of touring. There were two tables outside for eating and even a BBQ. The setting was magnificent--one of the prettiest we saw in all of Tuscany. The location was perfect--about a 20 minute drive to Florence and no more than 1-1/2 hours to all the small towns we wanted to visit: Sienna, Pisa, Voltare, Lucca, etc. The villa was also less than 10 minutes to a lovely town with a large grocery store, the COOP. The charming center of the town had wonderful restaurants. We would definitely stay there again and recommend the property with one exception: Ilaria, her husband, and two young children (3 and 5) live in a separate part of the building and you can hear their activities. We found them to be a delightful family, but think carefully if you want total peace and quiet., it may not be for you. Only one other concern: a washing machine is available, but it costs 8 euros a load to use.

“Wonderful stay, wonderful hosts”
Reviewed 2 June 2012 for a stay in May 2012

Our visit to the Tuscan countryside was a terrific experience, thanks to Ilaria and her family and her delightful villa. We especially appreciated hearing the background and history of the lovely villa (some elements from the 14th century, etc), and what happened near it during WWII. The Chianti town of San Casciano was very close and we loved eating at the country-style Tuscan restaurants every night. Location of the villa was perfect--the most beautiful countryside you can imagine, and smack dab in the middle of working vineyards of the Chianti region. Ilaria asked for our opinion on her newest vintage, and we were very happy indeed to provide it (consensus: Yum). Would we return here? Just try to stop us!
Just as a BTW--the villa's address does show up in the sat navigation system, so no problems finding the place.
