Just got back from a month here and it was absolutely perfect!
If you're looking for a tranquil base to chill out in, this is the place to go.
Having a car is great, but if like me you don't have a car, then getting around by train is incredibly easy and surprisingly inexpensive. So it's easy to get to all the traditional tourist places, for example, from here I went to Florence, Pisa and Siena.
It's a leisurely stroll into Vicchio town where you'll find plenty of places to eat and drink, and the local supermarket has more than you'll need to be able to stock up on provisions for your stay.
The owner of the property is so lovely and very helpful.
If you're into cycling, this is area is perfect - so be sure to take your bike!!!
