Casa Colonica is a great place to stay while in Tuscany. Sara, the owner, provides wonderful accommodations, complete with technically enough food for the entire week we were there, although we enjoyed visiting the local markets and coop's for added treats.

The villa is set atop a hillside with amazing views all around -- we were greeted by a breathtaking sunset on our first night. Inside, there's a spacious and elegant dining room, then an inviting kitchen that begs cooking, followed by a quaint TV room in which we enjoyed cartoons (can you say "Captain Cave-maaaaaaaannnnnn!") in French and Italian via the satellite (Sara was also nice enough to supply us with DVDs to watch as we were a little under the weather on our trip).

Upstairs features two very spacious bedrooms and a ginormous walk-in bath. The home is lovely, spacious, and well-kept, but the hospitality was even better. The surrounding area has easy access via trains and car to other towns -- we visited Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, and Firenze. This is a great place for families looking to experience the real deal in Tuscany.
