Kerry Baldwin, Hailsham, United Kingdom

The villa has beautiful surroundings and we had a very relaxing holiday, the pool is ideal for a family and you could hardly keep us out of it! I would like to thank Rita, the villa owner for all her help, we found her very friendly and helpful. Mercatale Valdarno is within walking distance and has necessary shops. A charming village.

The villa and surrounding area were delightful. We very much enjoyed our stay in this wonderful part of the world, and offer a special thank-you to Rita herself, who was a wonderful hostess during our vacation.

I would suggest more clearly stating that the villa is near Mercatale, a town with every amenity (alementari etc.) Mention of Ipercoop in Montevarchi would be helpful.
The house was delightful, location excellent, accessible to the autostrada, close to town, very walkable, but at the same time, secluded.

Good swimming pool and lovely garden, we did find some good restaurants in the neighbourhood and Siena is not far.
