“We greeted the New Year 2020 from the top of the tower at Francesca and Marco's amazing villa, it was a really special family occasion for us all. The tower was perfectly located an easy bus ride from Florence and day trip to Sienna which we loved. We did a couple of walks from the villa which were perfect, stunning views of Florence in the distance. We loved the village and the shop keepers were super friendly and helpful, everything available. The tower was warm and very comfy, lots of hot water, super comfy beds and tastefully decorated and set up. A wonderful stay altogether and absolutely everything we wished for. Thanks to Francesca and Marco!”

“Majla and Marco were exemplary hosts. They made us feel so welcome and at home. The castle is beautiful, the location idyllic! We took part in their cooking classes, which were so much fun with Steve and Louisa who were both patient teachers. An absolute Must Do if in the area. Thank you so much to both of you! ”
Where is it?
THE VILLAGE Local deli, freshly baked bread, cheeses, wine and beer shop, great cappuccino and top butcher of the valley all right across the street, 5 minutes walk. NO PROPER RESTAURANT WALKING DISTANCE, but you can buy all the food you need to make your own meals, and the local butcher also offers lasagne and grilled chicken and beverages, to eat there or take home. Very nice family style trattoria only 5 minutes driving from home, serving great pizza, pasta, steak and more Italian food.
The tower is the top of the villa which sits on top of the hills on top of the village...Great views and breeze, but only 5 minutes walk from the little shops, (veggies, meats, freshly baked breads, cappuccino, and a rotisserie which also serves meals etc). A community center/bar will serve caffe and aperitivi, with a great panoramic terrace. Plenty of hikes start from here.
