Overall:
Beautiful place for our group. Lovely big villa and lovely grounds. Remote, so needed rental scooters and bikes to explore nearby towns. Pool was a hit.
Enjoyed Most:
The house was big and cool and comfortable. Very grand. The dining room was where we had the most togetherness as we prepared most dinners.
Enjoyed Least:
The kitchen was okay but the dishwasher didn't work well so lots of dishes after big group meals.
Surrounding Area:
Beautiful country, nice biking, neighboring towns were fun to visit by van, bike, e-bike and scooter. Good grocery store and views at Montaione, and land hill bike shop was awesome there, too.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Gambassi Terme was closest. Not within walking distance, but Montaione, and Gambassi were bike-able and scooterable.
Tips or Restaurants:
Rental bikes, e-bikes and scooters are a must so you're not trapped at the villa. Cell service was spotty and the wireless internet not so great either.
Directions:
Make sure you have a data plan and charged phone so Google Maps can help navigate.

Overall:
The property is wonderful. The home is nicely decorated and the rooms are very spacious. We loved the big dining room and large sitting rooms for our big group. The grounds are huge and beautiful and nice for walking around. It's a wonderful location.
Enjoyed Most:
The scenic location and the big rooms. It was also great that from the upstairs bedrooms you cannot hear any noise going on on the first floor. It was a great place to gather with a big group of friends.
Enjoyed Least:
The beds are firm.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty and the tranquility.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Gambasse Terme is close by (5 minute drive), but not necessarily walking distance. But there is a restaurant and coffee bar just across the street. San Gimignano was about 10-15 minute drive.
Tips or Restaurants:
The coffee maker takes the little one-use canisters! We brought ground coffee which we could not use.
Directions:
Those who used GPS did well; Google maps was great when you put in the full address. Those who didn't had trouble finding it.
Check In Out:
Giulia was there when we arrived and very helpful. Since we brought the wrong kind of coffee she was able to sell us the little pods. But she was not there on our 3rd or 4th days, or when we checked out. We had some laundry in the washer that we could not get to since she was not there and the laundry door was locked. We had to find the caretaker to open it up. There was no one there at check out. We did not know what to do with the garbage.
