I think all of us agreed it was one of the best and most relaxing holidays we have ever had. Alessandra and Steven were both charming and attentive hosts, and ensured that we were spoiled rotten in both the quality/quantity of food and wine and the high standard of accommodation. I almost felt embarrassed by how little I had to do as we were waited on hand and foot. My children had great fun with her 2 girls and they occupied themselves by swimming in the oversized pool, playing with the jack russell puppies, jumping on the trampoline, running around the property and visiting the horses, hens and geese!

Alessandra has impeccable taste and has decorated her home beautifully. We had all our meals outdoors at an oversized glass table with lovely views of the valley. The property is perfectly placed as it is down a dead end road so there is never another car in sight, yet it is just 30 minutes from both Florence and Siena (once you have found your way around). Our first adventure found us very lost yet we drove through some of the most spectacular countryside so no one was bothered! There are also many quiet spots to be found on the grounds should you want to escape from any sign of life at all (ie over excited children!).

They also have a wonderful selection of wines in their cellar and they were more than happy to share them with us as we are fellow wine lovers. Also, in case you felt like giving Mimi and Alessandra a break from cooking, there is a great family run restaurant just up the hill with an outdoor playing area for children to keep them occupied while you enjoy yet another 3 course meal!

We all have very hectic lives and more often than not, find it difficult to wind down on holiday particularly with young children and only a week away. Villa Alessandra and its welcoming family had the magic ingredients and all of us reluctantly left on the Sunday, with every intention of returning there as soon as possible! We also fell in love with one of the most fantastic dogs ever. Her name is Zulu and she is a Rhodesian Ridgeback...Alessandra has promised us puppies as soon as we move to the country. I could go on for ever bit I am sure you get my point!

Thank you very much Sarah for organising the villa for us...

For anyone considering staying there, I cannot recommend it enough..

Regards
