Daniel Ratner, , Others...

The location is fablious. Fantastic view; Isolated and quite; A lot of rooms inside and a lot of outside to have activiies. Lovely pool. The bulding (mainly internally) has a character. Outside the house a lot of possibilities. The owners (Barbara and her parents) make sure the site is green with flowers and clean - make u love the site. Indeed out of the building, one can rest, the other can enjoy the view. The whole visiting gang can have breakfast in the shadow, BBQ at the other side or simply enjoying the flattering sun. Internally there is a lot of rooms - we were a party of 11 people and we did not use all beds. The internet was practically useless. One needs a car. Barbara waited for us when we arrived in the near by village, although it was very late. We communicated well via e-mail (which I had on my mpbile) Ottobre 2015

Outdoor facilities and good arrangement with dinner Monday evening superb experience. Descriptions and images fit the facts, which is often not the case in Italy.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderfull. Only suggestion for improvement - better coffee makers, better towels. The reality of the location and villa exceeded exceeded our expectations... once we found it :-)

Anne Radford, Bethesda, United States

We appreciated the breathtaking view, the lovely pool, the outdoor dining areas, the stunning garden, the cool indoor sitting areas, and the Tuscan meals that were prepared for us (twice)by the helpful, friendly owners.
Pistoia is very interesting, not touristy, has good restaurants, and is nearby. Take the "Underground Pistoia" tour from the hospital. Pistoia stays open late (til midnight) on Thursdays and has music, nightlife on that day. Lucca is beautiful. The villa is also convenientt for Florence.
What did you like on our website www.tuscany-villas.com ? This is the second time we've used your website and would certainly do so again. We like the search choices (because we're a large group and always want a pool). The staff are always helpful an respond immediately.
