On our way to the villa, we followed the directions which led us on paved roads and then finally onto a dirt road that started an incline. We didn't think much of it until it became a narrow lane barely wide enough for one car! Did I mention it was on the edge of a mountain with no guard rails?! I was clinging to the door of the car in total fear of falling off the road! There were even mirrors in the trees so you could see around upcoming turns and you had to beep the horn in case anyone was coming in the opposite direction around the same turn.
Anyway, this property is owned by a family that run a winery and olive oil factory on it from their own vines and groves. It was amazing! There are about six or seven buildings on the property including the office building, the rental buildings, the owner's building and even it's own little chapel! There was also an inground pool but, unfortunately it was just a little too chilly to use it.
Our unit was like a dream! We had our own little two story, 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, stone house with typical Italian terra cotta tile floors and beamed ceilings. My favorite aspect, and the point that made me choose this property, was the bedroom. There were huge arched windows from floor to ceiling with the most stunning views of the rolling hills of Tuscany!! This was the first sight we saw every morning and it was breathtaking! We also had a cute little kitchen and living room with a TV.
