It was fantastic.
Enjoyed Most:
We loved the panoramic views, and the beautiful swimming pool was so refreshing after a hot day in one of the nearby towns.
Enjoyed Least:
The washing machine was a little temperamental.
Surrounding Area:
We were well-situated for day trips to many amazing spots Florence, Siena, Lucca, San Gimignano, Piensa, and Montalcinoto name a few.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Poggibonsi. No. About 10 mins. Very charming!

Just enjoy! It was a slice of heaven!
It was hard to find and we ended up at the rental office but it wasn't very well-marked.

No. Went smoothly!

Thie villa was beautiful and very large. The view was spectacular with San Gimignano in the distance. The pool was enormous and well maintained. The management were very helpful (as much as their limited English allowed).
Enjoyed Most:
The pool, the view and the spaciousness were all excellent.
Enjoyed Least:
The cost of using the air-conditioning was high. We were there in a heat wave and the air-conditioning was used extensively during the afternoon and overnight.
Surrounding Area:
Villa Riccardo was very well located being close to San Gimignano, Poggibonsi, Monteriggioni, Siena and other local medieval sites.
Nearby Events or Locales:
You would definitely need a car to get around. Poggibonsi was about 7 kms away which was where the large supermarket was located.
Tips or Restaurants:
Get your groceries stocked up by Saturday evening as not much is open on a Sunday.
The directions were good.
Check In Out:
Ask the manager what is included or not - the water in the fridge was free but we didn't realize it until check out. There is limited information about the place however if you are prepared to ask questions, the managers will help. They do have limited English so if you have a translator on your phone or a English-Italian translation book it would be helpful.
