This was truly living "la dolce vita". This villa is like a fantasy come to life with a gorgeous pool, amazing grounds including olive orchards, and panoramic Tuscan views. It literally bears a striking resemblance to the villa in the movie "Under the Tuscan Sun" . Its proximity to town was perfect as well. We loved our host Vittorio, he was warm and gracious and even brought us his personal wine. We are already plotting when we can come back.
