Lajatico is within walking distance and there you will find a selection of restaurants, shops and sites to see.

This is a natural amphitheatre which is calved into the beautiful surroundings and hills of Lajatico and hosts regular music and arts events. It is really something to be seen.

We were very satisfied with our accommodation. Great room, fantastic view and very nice service.
The apartment and the view are beautiful, it's Bella Vista, - we really enjoyed the Margarita apartment, but it was too cold, when the temperatures got below 20 degrees. It was cold at night and it was cold in the evening in the apartment and when you've only got a sheet and a thin blanket, as covers, a wool blanket doesn't help that much. It was also really difficult to get hot water. We were cold and that took away some of the joy of the beautiful apartment and the surroundings. Stefania, who's the hostess, was incredibly sweet, but they were very busy with the harvest and because of that there weren't wine- and oil tasting.
I think it is a small paradise, when the sun is shining, because the pool area and the small gardens/terraces, are lovely and the view is incredible.
We were two families away together and everything went really well. Kind owners, who had everything under control, and always were ready to help. Lovely place and great restaurant. Beautiful nature and view - and lovely with a small private garden for example for breakfast and a nice pool with lots of space. The apartments was nice and cool in the hot climate. All in all a great place which we would like to return to.
I booked the Girasole cottage at Bellavista for 4 friends attending the Andrea Bocelly concert for 3 nights. I wish I had booked a week long break here. We only saw the owners on arrival , departure and dinner on the first evening. The cottage has everything you need- except AC, but a fan was supplied for the warmer bedroom upstairs. We felt we had our own private pool as there was rarely anyione else around. Views are breathtaking and endless over the Tuscan countryside. The village of Lajatico was a 5 minwalk uphill and had everything we needed.
In -Italia were very quick to respond to all queries pre arrival.
Peace and quiet, relaxation, Tuscany nature and food.
We think that we were well received
InItalia have also been incredibly helpful during the whole trip .
