    It may be an issue to get there via google maps, but read the suggested direction as detailed in the communication once google maps got you to the closest point. The location of the house is great, you're basically viewing this valley with grapes and olive trees and San Gimignano, which is just letting you relax. The house does not offer AC but it's possible to manage as the weather in the area should not be as hot, and there's breeze when all windows are opened. It has beautiful pool to cool in, seating areas to drink wine/coffee, the owner are very helpful and will verify every once in a while that you have all that you need. They did treat us with bottle of wine and olive oil that they produce from their own grapes and olives as well as fruits and baked goods that they baked at home. overall we felt very welcomed and relaxed. been there for 7 days, and I wish we could have stayed additional 7 days :-) highly recommended, come with English/Italian translator to use when needed as in Italy not many people speak English and with the house owners it's needed. The Food, Wine and Gellato are the best it was a treat to visit Italy.

    We just completed an amazing Christmas vacation at Nido del Merlo! This was a truly a special vacation made even more special by our amazing host Patricio. She warmly greeted us on arrival, and really made us feel welcome and comfortable. The villa was perfectly appointed with sweets, cakes, and fruit etc which really made the perfect home for our Christmas celebration with two families. The bedrooms were roomy, and the grounds, & views from the villa were simply amazing. The location was very central to the Tuscany region, and allowed us to make many day trips throughout the region. This is a special place, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

    Wir haben einen sehr schönen Urlaub in diesem Haus verbracht! Patrizia hat uns mit ihren Köstlichkeiten aus ihrem Garten und aus ihrer Küche verwöhnt! Auch ohne Klimaanlage hatten wir Mitte August angenehme Nächte!
