"Stunning Place"

This was a perfect holiday for us- the house had such beautiful views and the pool was gorgeous. Everything is wonderfully clean and well kept with lots of places to relax, the balcony, daybed with mosquito net etc- we were glad of the very quiet air conditioning too! There is nothing better than spending the morning in Volterra and the afternoon swimming and reading followed by a barbeque and some Chianti in the evening. The children had a great time too, if you get the chance to sample some of Sara's cooking, it's well worth it. We hope to return.

Recommended for: Age 55+, sightseeing, families with teenagers, families with young children and romantic getaway

Villa Colle is superb!
Left on 07/10/2013 for a stay in June 2013
Villa Colle is a separate Villa at the other end of the property with delightful views up to Volterra and down into the valley. Newly built to a high standard with quality fittings, we could not fault it. The upstairs balcony, straight off the master bedroom, was a real bonus ideal for breakfast and in the evening. Sara is wonderful and very welcoming, her English is excellent. They have put a lot of thought into all the outside amenities, loungers, gas barbecue, extensive shade cover, the whole place is a delight. Tom,Glas UK
Fantastic place!
Left on 08/19/2012 for a stay in July 2012
We stayed at the villa that has just been built and thought it was brilliant. From booking the Villa and arriving in Italy, Sara was really helpful and made us feel at home, she also got some shopping in for us as we arrived quite late. The Villa has been built and finished to a brilliant standard and amazing view Nottingham.
