A villa in Tuscany for 2?

We have heard about lovely villas in Tuscany for 2. Does anyone know of any, the costs and whether air-conditoning is necessary?

I think this could be a help in your trip planning.
> I've been in Tuscany many times, but I wonder to stay for a long period
to know it with more details.
> So after a homework I decide to rent a villa in the outskirts of Siena.
That was a lovely experience!
> From this point we went to the Chianti region, San Gimignano, Florence
(twice), and south of Siena to Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, etc.
> A car is a must. The roads are great and the little back roads very nice.
> Le Meridiane ís a villa in Siena. It could suit you. My wife and I have
been at Le Meridiane, for a week, last year.
We liked it very much. The accomodations are very clean, large (you can see
the bedroom where we slept at the website), comfortable and has all
amenities. It has all cooking facilities and we had many meals at home.
There is a good view to the gardens with many olive trees and to a valley
with a avenue. It is located at the outskirts of Siena, fifteen minutes by
car to the Centro Storico and very near to the auto-route to Florence.
> >There is a small grocery store nearby and a supermarket (COOP) a ten
minutes ride near the railstation.
> >>The street, with many houses, ends at a cul-de-sac at Le Meridiane in a
small plaza where you can park your car. We had a car (leased from Renault
in Paris) and we've made many trips to the Chianti Region and south of Siena
(Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Sinalunga, etc.). Twice we went to
Florence (50 minutes by a no-toll auto-route). La signora Ana, who is in
charge of the villa, is very helpful and lives in another house nearby. I
looked for the website and I found it:

you might find something there. I have rented from them before on the Amalfi Coast! It was fabulous!

www.rentvillas.com is one of the best rental agencies for Italy. They also offer great advice, at reasonable rates.

Try www.calboccia.com (hope I spelled that right). They have a villa for many and a small building next to it that would be ideal for 2 - or one, ME, if I can ever get away! Owned by an American who hires a local to attend to their visitor's needs. Fills up fast.

We stayed at a beautiful place in November that was near Umbertide (border of Tuscany and Umbria). It is about 25 minutes from Cortona. Check out www.italiareservations.com.
We were very pleased - was cozy and romantic. I don't know if they have AC.

The best site for rental of Tuscan villas, castles and country homes is www.tuscany.net;

Each property is well detailed with many photos so you can zero in on what's most important or appealing to you. Prices (vary by season), ammenities, etc are well documented.

We used the site to book a private suite (for 2) in a Tuscan castle this past December. Great experience!
