Our Tuscan Villa

The Bedroom

The villa that we rented in Tuscany was wonderful!  It was a little one-bed vacation apartment located near the small town of San Sano and between the larger towns of Radda-in-Chianti and Lecchi-in-Chianti.  This meant that it was only about 25km from Siena, which meant that you could parked in Sienna in less than an hour (even accounting for missed turns on the way); and, it was only a little over an hour to Florence (40km or so).  Overall, it was about as perfect of a location as we could have asked for!

View from Terrace

As far as accommodation, it was very good.  The downstairs was adequately outfitted with a small kitchenette, sofa, and TV.  While the upstairs had a comfortable bed, closets, and lovely double-doors onto the terrace.  As far as the villa was concerned, there was only two small complaints – the shower and the lack of extra pillows.  The shower never got really hot and lacked water pressure … while it was okay, there are times when you really want a really hot shower after being a tourist all day!

On the other hand, the staff were great!  When we had trouble with our rental car on the final day, they let us use the villa after check-out time and talked to the rental company to give them directions.  So, if you are looking for a place to say, may I recommend To-Tuscany and the Montefiorile complex.
