We had a wonderful stay. The villa was just what we were looking for.
The property manager was very good and gave us great information about what to see and where to eat.
The view. The pool. Just being able to relax and enjoy ourselves. There were a lot of daytime excursions, two of which were Siena and Firenze, so the location is wonderful. The town Tavarnelle Val di Pesa has a large supermarket and we were able to get Internet at the library.
There was no internet access. The living room was really not functional for 4 people to gather in. We spent our time mostly in the kitchen or outside. There was no radio either, so with no internet and no radio, we had no music. That would have been great to have.
It was the scenery. Grapes were being harvested and everyone was busy, yet we were still able to go for wine tastings all around the area.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest small town was Noce. This is a very small town with really no stores, but Tavarnelle was only 12 mile away, so we were able to go to great restaurants, get good food supplies, and shop.
Tips or Restaurants:
We went to some excellent restaurants. The villa is not luxurious, but it was exactly what we were looking for and it was affordable.
Everything was there, so we didn't need to buy anything.
We did have a GPS, which was very helpful. The directions given were also very good. It is quite easy when you are coming from Rome. We were coming from Rimini, so we had to cross mountains on a very winding road. We did not have a cell phone to call the property manager, so had to go into town to find a phone. She met us at the store and drove with us back to the property.
