Excellent. Tuscany is exceptionally beautiful in the winter, and with the sun shining almost every day, all in all it was a lovely week.
Enjoyed Most:
As I was there with my two dogs, I think the space around the house and its location far from a road made it ideal.
Enjoyed Least:
There was a big problem with hot water, i.e. there was hardly any. We learned that the hot water heater was broken, and that was rather inconvenient. Luckily we are adept at heating water on the stove and carrying it upstairs to the bathtub.
Surrounding Area:
What's not to enjoy about the Tuscan countryside? Long walks, good food, visits to local sites - everything was close enough to get to by car.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Tavernelle. Not really within walking distance, but close.
Tips or Restaurants:
I think the week around Christmas is a bit tricky for first time Tuscan visitors. Many restaurants and shops are closed, and the famous Italian pausa complicates things even more. I would bring along a first meal just in case.
Barbara, the local agent managed to contact us by cell phone and send us the co-ordinates to the house, else we would still be circling around Italy. She was extremely nice and helpful. The GPS was basically useless, as the villa does not appear on it. If at all possible, I would advise arriving before dark.

Relaxing We loved it. The stunning views really made us know we were in Tuscany...probably the most beautiful part of Tuscany. Although narrow winding dirt roads made driving slow, there were some wonderful places to visit nearby. The villa was homey and spacious and comfortable. This property worked well for our group of 8 friends.
Enjoyed Most:
Location, stunning views, lovely huge relaxing lounge area with open fire we used as it was quite cold at times and the terrace for drinks at sunset. The colours of the walls in the changing light were SO Tuscan. Hiring the local chef twice for dinners...pre-booked for arrival dinner and later booked for final night...a great idea. Delicious, plentiful food, lovely chef (Tiziana)...table set in lovely dining room and all cleared away, dishes it! Own wines for dinner purchased during the day on our travels. Views of nearby Castello Banfi, Argiano winery and numerous hilltop towns really enhanced 'living' in the heart of Southern Tuscany. The property manager (Lourdes) was so friendly and helpful...glad two of us spoke Italian though as no English spoken.
Surrounding Area:
The stunning views, sunsets, serenity, truly Tuscan landscape everywhere we looked....special wineries, ristoranti, and nearby hilltop towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
No towns withing walking distance. Sant'Angelo di Scalo for basic supplies, but shops not always open...otherwise off to Montalcino (a slow 10km drive away but well worth it!!) or Sant' Angelo in Colle...
Tips or Restaurants:
Argiano (tasting) and Castello Banfi wineries (fabulous tour and tasting and lunch)...both can be seen from villa and are stunning properties. La Pieve ristorante and church nearby a must for tastings and lunch or dinner. Wonderful people too. Montalcino town around 10km drive...winding roads but worth the trip. Trattoria "Il Pozzo" for sensational local food...the cinghiale (wild boar) well worth the visit. Il Poderuccio Girardi winery in Sant'Angelo in Colle...smallest producer of brunello...lovely wines and winemaker. Great shopping in Montalcino, wine tastings and eateries. Bring paper towels, milk, tea, coffee, sugar etc...breakfast foods, toilet paper, shampoo etc...antipasto, bread, wine, water if you prefer bottled. Linen and towels provided and changed/housekeeping mid-week (make your own beds).
One of our group had a small car and GPS which we relied on for our mini van to follow. Not an easy villa to find even when we booked a 'local' driver to go to Avignonesi winery near Montepulciano.
Check In Out:
When we arrived later in the day at the villa we were welcomed by the manager. No paperwork was required. Check-in and check out couldn't have been easier or faster or more friendly.
