Monte San Savino
Struttura eccellente, camere ampie e ben arredate, bagni puliti e spaziosi. Eravamo 7 adulti e abbiamo trascorso tre giorni bellissimi in questa villa. xxx è stata sempre gentile e premurosa. La vasca idromassaggio riscaldata è stata un extra molto apprezzato. L'unico neo riguarda la strada sterrata per raggiungere la struttura ma una volta raggiunta ci si dimenticava di tutto. Un piccolo prezzo da pagare per trovarsi a contatto con la natura (abbiamo incrociato cinghiali, cerbiatti, istrici e fagiani)
We decided to pay more for a property that had it all (facilities, space and view) and were not disappointed. The rooms are all of a fairly good size (although there are compromises to be made: great view from two large windows & smaller bathroom or small window but corner bath). We were worried about the pool size but it's big enough and there are plenty of loungers. And the views are incredible, sunshine all day and perfect view of the sunset from the al-fresco/BBQ area. We also highly recommend paying for the chef who does everything including setting up/clearing up. We booked him twice (one indoor and one outdoor meal). It was cheaper and more convenient than eating out. The downside of having these wonderful, secluded views is the access. There is a very poor road up the hill to the property, which cannot be accessed without a 4x4. DO NOT use it. However, when you meet the team to collect keys, they provide you with an alternative, slightly longer route (down hill to the property). Although this is also rough in parts, it is easily manageable. We had 4 cars (2 xx , and a xx and xx) all of which managed the 1.6 mile off road track on numerous occasions without incident. Hire cars to get very dusty but nothing a hose down won't fix. Other thing to note is that electricity bill can rack up so we decided not to use air con which would require generator to be turned on due to remote location. Managed without air con despite average daytime temp of 35C. The final thing is that the support team are very friendly and excellent. Loads of helpful advice and assistance (helped me book city centre parking and advanced museum tickets for Florence as well as booking local restaurants when no one spoke English). The pool was also cleaned daily and person doubled up as a handyman for any minor issues. All in all, a wonderful property for those who want to get away but still be in the Chianti hills - highly recommended.
