    This is a beautiful Italian villa in the heart of Tuscany surrounding by olives groves. It is everything I imagined Tuscany would be. The evening meals were exquisitely prepared and absolutely delicious with outstanding views and a great atmosphere, with overviews of Tuscany. The pool is equally amazing where you can view the sunset. A Tuscan experience I will never forget. Riding the bike in the area was equally fun. For travelers wanting to get away from the city, this is the place to be.
