Peace and Quiet
Absolutely wonderful. It was beautiful, and peaceful, and comfortable. The swimming pool was large and clean and refreshing. My husband loved the outdoor shower! Frederica was charming and helpful.
The swimming pool and terrace/balcony.
Needed a few more chairs in the living room.
Beautiful view of the valley, beautiful sunrises from the terrace, proximity of other towns. We visited Florence, Siena, Monteriggioni, Vinci and San Gimignano.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montaione. Possible to walk, we drove. Lovely town. Good shops, good restaurants, nice piazzas, outdoor concert one evening - lovely!
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring binoculars - view is outstanding.
Bar Aione was great for gelati and sandwiches.
La Tarvernetta had a good menu, all the meals were good. Service was prompt and friendly. My niece claimed the gnocchi was the best she had ever tasted. Pizza at L'Erasmus Di Iuppa Enzo was delicious. I could have eaten there every night.
Yes, we used GPS- very helpful.
The villa was everything we hoped for and then some.
The grounds were beautiful and the pool was clean and lovely.
The access road was a bit rough.
The location was ideal for day trips to other Tuscan towns. Firenze was very close.
The immediate area was clean and lovely. Very rural.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montaione was the nearest town. It was not necessarily within walking distance but it was a very short, easy drive.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring binoculars to view the distant mountains and towns. The little restaurant right across the street from the entrance to the villa's road was wonderful.
I arrived a day late and so was picked up by others.
It was a wonderful trip experience. The Villa was centrally located to many of our destinations and the village of Montaione was wonderful.
The rooms were very good size, the outdoor pool was very nice and the overall location/scenery was wonderful.
There are insects/bugs, but that would be expected given that it is a relatively rural setting.
The geography is wonderful, the little village of Montaione is great, it is centrally located to Piza, Florence and Siena, plentiful number of wineries nearby as well.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Montaione. It is walkable to Montaione, but it is uphill to the town, so you have to be in decent shape to do it in reasonable time.
We used a GPS and it helped tremendously.
