Feedback 1st September to 8th September 2012
Good Day Monika,
Our (four couples, one person in a wheel chair) visit to Villa Ovidio was wonderful. One could not ask for a prettier location in the rolling hills of Tuscan wine country.
The owners family went out of there way to make us feel at home by shopping for us prior to arrival and than having us over to there home for a fantastic dinner party with their family. We did not speak the language but it is easy for people of good will to enjoy each other and have a wonderful night.
The Villa itself met all my brother-in-laws needs in his wheel chair. It was easy for him to get around the house and the yard to get to the patio and pool area.
It would be nice to have some printed matter about the area and day trips for people in a binder at the Villa. Also directions (with address) of places to eat would be a big help. With address you can enter it into GPS o find your way.
Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing visit,
George & Barbara, Jim & Barbara, John & Donna, Rosina & John

Monte San Savino is only 5 km from the villa, and is one of the most important centers of Val di Chiana with all kinds of shops and services and offers many cultural and popular events.

Its walls protect many important medieval and Renaissance buildings.
