    We stayed in this house for a week in late August. It was absolutely perfect for three families of three generations. The house is very clean and well-cared for and the photos don't do it justice. The garden is natural and pretty and the views are superb. The pool is away from the house, which was fine for us because our kids are 11 - 14 and can swim but this might be something to consider if you have younger kids who need supervision. The pool is well-fenced and safe. Highly recommend this home.

    We had a lovely stay at this house, didnt meet Susi but she was very helpful leading up to our stay - The owner Caterina is lovely and so so helpful - check in was easy, house is great for 2 families, we were just 4 adults and a toddler - Caterina recommended restaurants that were great and only a short drive away - views are spectacular - we did get bitten quite a bit by mosquitoes even though we did go prepared. Would definitely recommend staying here

    First of all: This is a beautiful place! Susi managed the booking very well (she helped us with two baby cribs and high chairs for the children and answered all of our questions) but we diden't met here. We met the owners of the house, Katerina and Alessandro. They live in a separate part of the house and they were very kind, friendly, descret and helpful. We arrived after midnight but still Alessandro welcomed us and gave us an introduction to the house. And the house is great! Beautiful garden, perfect pool, big and spacious, bbq. We were 8 grown ups and 4 children. We all enjoyed ourselves. We had a cooking class, arranged/held by Katerina. A great experience for our family. She also offered to arrange guided tour in Florence and wine tasting at a local winery. Very helpful. A short walk from the house is a Micheling star restaurant. We ate there and enjoyed ourselves. One morning we got a surprise visit from Alessandro's mother. She came to give us a homemade caramel pudding, witch was delicious. She is so sweet. The private garden and swimming pool was perfect for children and grown ups to enjoy. Since the house is beautifully located in the middle of the wine yards, be aware of mosquitoes. There are mosquitosnet on the windows, but you should still be prepared and bring the right equipment. Alessandro and Katerina's house is the best place to stay. We would highly recommend it.
