Harri, July

Overall:
We enjoyed the property. The surroundings were beautiful. The history very interesting. Our overall experience was fantastic.
Enjoyed Most:
Probably being centrally located to the places we traveled to.
Enjoyed Least:
That it wasn't in walking distance to a town. We would have loved to walk into town for a nice meal or just a cup of coffee.
Surrounding Area:
All the small hilltop towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Certaldo. No
Tips or Restaurants:
We did find a quaint little pizzeria by mistake, but couldn't tell you how to get there or even the name. It was off the beaten path by a lake with a beautiful outdoor BBQ.
Directions:
I think the directions were very involved. We used a map app. It was great.
Check In Out:
We requested to receive our refund of the security deposit early since we checked out in the wee hours to catch our flight.

Linda, October

Overall:
I was so happy with the villas; we also rented La Solaia, which is on the same estate. I would recommend both villas to anyone.
Enjoyed Most:
The views, the history and meeting the owners. They were both such interesting people. Their historical information about the estate made the villas even more special.
Enjoyed Least:
The distance from facilities. It really is necessary to rent a car.
Surrounding Area:
I love the ancient city of Certaldo, all of the vineyards, the weekly local markets in both certaldo and Poggibonsi and the proximity to many other great destinations.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Certaldo. No
Tips or Restaurants:
A great restaurant very close by is in Sciano and is the only pizza parlor there. Very good and very reasonably prices. Be sure you get your euros before coming to Italy. There is no place nearby in Certaldo to exchange American dollars. Learn a little Italian. It would have been a big help to know a few basic phrases.
Directions:
I did not have a rental car with a GPS, nor GPS on my cell phone. That would have been the easiest solution. I don't think there is much you can do to improve.
Check In Out:
None. It was very easy and the owners were very helpful.

Donna, August

Overall:
Fantastic! Like new property, bright and clean and wonderful.
Enjoyed Most:
The sitting area outside was darling.
Enjoyed Least:
Couldn't figure out that it was an induction stovetop for a little while.
Surrounding Area:
Close to lots of charming towns. Easy to catch the train.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Sciano and Certaldo. Sciano just has a pizzeria but it's walkable. Certaldo is 10 mins by car.
Tips or Restaurants:
Plan to stay at the property and hang out. It's a great location. This villa has all the amenities a US family would expect and want.
Directions:
Use a GPS. Call the owner, she is very helpful in finding it, especially the last few turns, which are poorly marked.
Check In Out:
No, Elizabeth was wonderful and flexible.
