It was a peaceful and beautiful property and we had a great week there both using it as a launching pad for sightseeing and as a great place to hang out with the kids and relax.
We loved the grounds and the view. The villa itself was beautiful and spacious with the right number of bedrooms and good room size. The pool was terrific as was the furniture. We also appreciated the games/toys/books that were there.
Since the property is not air-conditioned the top floor became very hot at night even with the fan on. Because not all the windows were screened, we could not open them due to heavy mosquitos.
Also, we liked Francesco and Liliana but it would have been helpful if someone had spoken some English.
We enjoyed running/walking to the nearby villages--the nearby Co-op for shopping and proximity to Firenze and Pisa.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Palaia was not exactly walking distance. Genovese was within walking distance but there is not much happening there.
Tips or Restaurants:
Bring lots of good bug spray from the US. The Italian spray was fairly useless.
Check In Out:
It was smooth and painless.
