Jonathan Lovett, , United Kingdom

Marvellous setting, very good swimming pool/area, Mazzina the receptionist/cleaner was very helpful. It's excellently positioned to visit the principle sights/cities but ensure you have vehicle and plan your city visits carefully for parking...avoid ZTLs even if a additional walk/tram etc is required for peace of mind.

Beautiful place and surroundings. Great tuscan experience. Don't miss in Peccioli the Pasticeria Ferretti, a family restaurant with a great food and friendly atmosphere.

Everything was great from the location, to the warmth of the owners/management to the welcoming gathering in the restaurant just down the way. Most sights were central enough by car (less than 45 minutes) which made us happy about our choice of this Villa. Lovely area. Great hosts. Nice and relaxing pool. We enjoyed the Wednesday Pizza party, outside, as it gave us a chance to converse with other travelers and have a relaxing evening. The dinner recommendation at a rustic restaurant down the road, will remain in my memory for many years. Molto Bene! Although directions were good to the property, if you have a Garmin you might wish to use it.

Superb! Great hosts and excellent accomodation. Great location in the hillside of tuscany, isolated by close enough to town, very central to explore tuscany, great hosts, the owner lives just down the road and will come striaght down if you have any problems, excellent hosts. Be prepared by buying food etc before you get there, BBQ are great so stock up on supplies, we flew into Pisa and found it very easy to access from there.

Very nice appartment house in wonderful conutryside, appartment is large and well equipped. Staff was very friendly, giving us a lot of useful advices about the possibilities of making the trips around. Interesting offer of own-made products (olive oil, honey, wine, etc.). Dont forget to ask the staff about the tasting of olive oil and honey - both are perfect!

We loved this place! Good value for your money. Very calm, clean and friendly place with an astonishing landscape. It's easy to reach all important destinations, such as Florence, Pisa, Siena, Volterra, San Gimignano or Populonia. Give yourself a chance and try the Michelin advised restaurant close to the old town of Peccioli. It has a really great cuisine.
