    May 2022. 3 cousins - 2 from America, 1 from UK plus husbands have just spent 10 days at Patrizia's lovely villa. We were extremely pleased with our choice. Patrizia and her mother (Grandma Maria) were wonderful hosts and so generous with gifts of eggs from the hens, vegetables from the garden , even pizza, cold meats, bread, fruit and wine for a scratch meal on arrival, plus a selection of cakes and biscuits to go with coffee or tea. The villa, its elevated position with its view across to San Gimignano, the pool area and large garden were all wonderful. The pictures of the garden on the website need updating as they do not do justice to Grandma Maria's tireless work in the beautiful garden which was a riot of colour with a fantastic display of roses. We made good use of the barbeque (wood supplied) and Patrizia and Grandma Maria cooked a marvellous meal for us one evening which we ate in the lovely pergola in the garden of Grandma's adjoining house. The location is rural but not remote and very peaceful so it would have been easy to spend all the holiday at the villa. Being rural there were of course there were the usual country noises of barking dogs and the early morning call of cockerels. The 5 bedrooms were all very spacious and the terrace surrounding the 4 upstairs rooms was a real bonus. We used the downstairs bedroom and 2 upstairs which meant that each couple could have their own bathroom but it would have been easy to share. The furnishings were all very good. Missing from the website is a photo of the large comfortable lounge but the weather was so good we hardly used it and were able to take all our meals outside. The 9 score for the kitchen is only because there is a shortage of power sockets so it is necessary to juggle between appliances but this was no real problem. We would certainly return to Nido del Merlo and think anyone booking the villa would be as pleased as we were. The house number of the villa is No 42, on SP95 so feeding that into the sat nav as well as the co-ordinates would help getting there. Thank you once again Patrizia and Grandma Maria. Jennifer and the cousins.
