Spectacular renovated villa with park-like setting

From the moment I saw the photos of our rental villa on the Plum Guide website, I was enchanted and wanted to go there. I was looking for something in Tuscany in an area we hadn't stayed in before, and was traveling with my husband, our adult daughter and our adult son and his wife. Arriving at the villa we were greeted warmly by the owners and fell into easy conversation while they showed us the facility and its amenities. I am an interior designer so notice the details and ambience first. Discovering that the owner's wife is a designer accounted for the thoughtful decor and amenities. This villa had everything you might need for a family stay and was simple with no extraneous cluttered items to distract. The rooms were spacious, traditional Tuscan style but elevated with a modern feel. The renovation of the villa was very well thought out, such as location of and quantity of light switches and outlets, sumptuous fabrics, some antiques and overall immaculate cleanliness. The gardens and pool and surrounding grounds are like a park and was an unexpected extra treat. We used those outdoor areas extensively as we were blessed with great weather. Parking is spacious (a luxury in Tuscany), security is good with an automatic gate operated with a key fob, and having laundry facility was a bonus. The kitchen is well-designed and outfitted and it was a pleasure to prepare meals with easy clean up. Bathrooms are large and using classic Italian materials cararra marble and gleaming polished chrome fixtures and white plumbing fixtures for style that will endure. The hosts had a great list of area sights and restaurants and the location allowed us to explore more areas of Tuscany on day trips, wine tastings, and castle visits. In short, the experience was even better than I had hoped and I feel thankful that we discovered Plum Guide and its elevated standards for rental properties.
