Fabulous,peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

It's the second time we have stayed at this fabulous villa in the Tuscan hills near Villafranca. The addition of the new fantastic pool made our families experience even more enjoyable.Great supermarket nearby for cooking in and fabulous hotel restaurant 50metres away if you can't be bothered to cook on your holidays.Best of both worlds.

The house itself has a great view of the Tuscan hills in the lunigiana and sleeps everyone comfortably.

Helen and Jimmy are lovely boasts and they always leave a bottle of fizz in the fridge, which helps!

The house is also very close to a great hotel which does lovely local food, where the head waiter speaks English for those non-Italian speakers.
