Our family totally enjoyed the stay!
I loved our stay in this beautiful country house. The views were amazing and the kids got to enjoy the pool all to themselves. The nearby town provided lots of opportunities to shop and dine and we got to explore the olive groves and vineyards with our new found friends. I loved the spacious house that was tastefully decorated and furnished and the large garden. The hostess was also incredible - friendly and vocal and she really got the kids to warm up to her.I would love to visit again.

"We spent a wonderful relaxing week here for our first wedding anniversay and it was perfect! We were lucky enough to have the entire gardens and pool to ourself as the larger apartment had not been rented so it was like having our own private Tuscan house amidst olive groves and vineyards. The photos really do not do the apartment justice, all the little rustic touches and attention to detail really made this a home from home. Within walking distance of the nearest town, Tavernelle, with it''s lovely quaint square where you can drink coffee and eat cake at a fraction of the cost it would be in Florence or Pisa, devour a delicious Italian ice cream or shop at the weekly market for some amazing bargains, this really is a great base whatever type of holiday you are looking for. Ideally placed between Florence and Siena in the Chianti region you have so much on your doorstep if you want to travel around and the peace and quiet of the Tuscan countryside if you decide to camp out by the pool! We had some great meals, one in Barberino Val d''Elsa at Il Campanellino, another at Vicolo dei Golosi on Vico d''Elsa and the final one at a lovely place recommended by the Silvia, the owner of the property, just outside Barberino called Sosta del Pio. Silvia was so helpful before and during our stay, nothing was too much trouble, she is a most gracious host and as welcoming as her lovely property. Just one tip on car parking: when parking in a limited time zone you MUST write a note of your arrival time and display it on your dashboard or purchase a parking disc (3 euros at the Tobacconist in Tavernelle square) and set it at your arrival time, or like us you could find yourself down the local police station explaining you were less than an hour in the car park and still have to to pay the 39 euro fine, we''ll know next time :-) All in all a perfectly relaxing time in a wonderful location with so much on your doorstep and a wonderful welcoming host, thank you for everything Silvia!"

It was close to the town of Tavernelle, with bakery, coffee shops, restaurants, etc. and close to the supermarket."
The kids enjoyed the pool the most!
A perfect location to explore vineyards, towns, and close to Siena and Florence.
We could not have asked for a better experience.
