This well-renovated villa has been our vacation home every year since 1996. It is a great location for day trips to Florence, Pisa, Siena, Lucca...even Arezzo. The only sounds are cuckoos and sheep's bells. The vista from poolside is marvelous...you can swim in the nude if you want to, because of the privacy. Food shopping is adequate in the local town, Gambassi, and COOP and PAM supermarkets are not far away in Certaldo and Poggibonsi. If you are lucky enough to meet the owners, you will find them friendly and helpful (if you speak Italian it helps). You can't go wrong!
