“excellent accommodation, great location, value and host”

I dont normally review but this property was so beyond my expectations that I felt others should know about it. I had not booked using trip advisor before and so didnt know what to expect, but when we got there I was very impressed at the effort and thought that the owner Cristian has taken. The property is very high quality with excellent facilities including showers and towels and wifi by the pool, bikes to use, an expansive selection of kitchen items etc, and comfortable beds and bathrooms (our property has 3 bedroms and 4 bathrooms enough for all the kids!. The property has terraced gardens where you can pick whatever fruit, vegetables and herbs you need. Cristian is an exceptional owner who was constantly helpful and provided us with extra treats such as cold drinks when we got there, a well stocked welcome basket, and trays of pastries and cakes every few days. The location is based on the top of a (steep!) hill and is great if you like peace quiet and staggering views and is ideally located for short drives to many of the stunning villages and towns. (You would need a car as the only thing within walking distance is a winery which does tastings)
There are two properties at the site . We booked one and the other was empty which meant we had the place to ourselves, even so there was plenty of room and it woild make an exceptional location for extended family or friend gatherings.
This property was exceptional value for money and I thank Cristian for his hard work in making our stay as special as it was.

“Our own private park in Tuscany”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

I stayed here in July with my family (two daughters and my husband) and our friends from the US (husband, wife, two sons, and grandmother). For us, it was the perfect set-up. My family took the smaller two bedroom Casita and my friends had the larger house. We are friends and enjoy each others company but it was perfect to be able to spend time together during the day and then retire to our own private residences at night. The houses were immaculate and the landlord, Christian, and his wife take great pride in their property, as they should, welcoming you with friendly and thoughtful care. The grounds are like your own private park with swimming pool, terraced vegetable garden full of wonderful tomatoes to be picked and eaten, turtles, mountain bikes, all that you could ask for. The house overlooks several of the classic medieval Tuscan towns including Certaldo Alto (with a Michelin Star restaurant) and San Gimignano. The house is remote but, most things in Tuscany are. We usually rent homes when we vacation and this one was definitely the cleanest and most well equipped (laundry detergent provided-perfect). I would highly recommend this property and if we decide to make another trip to Tuscany I would gladly stay here again.

Liked best: The setting of the property
Liked least: There is a tenant living on the property and although he is not a problem it was a little shocking to find out that someone else would be occupying the space with you.
