Other things to note

IL CUCULO: some say the name is inspired by the place where it stands, i.e. on the top of a hill (cucuzzolo=little peak), others say it comes from the bird of prey which lives in the area (cuckoo).
The house has been recently rebuilt. We respected its ancient structure (it was a 150 years old country house belonging to peasants).

The owners have created a beautiful villa with plenty of functionality. The villa is set within the most stunning scenery, about 25minutes drive from Monte San Savino. The villa itself is massive and everything is well maintained and looked after. We had seven people staying including three young children there was plenty of room for everyone, with a number of different communal areas and we all loved the pool. We loved our stay, I would stress that the payoff for such privacy and surroundings is the villa is isolated, you are miles away from everything! The route off the main road to the villa is a a dirt track, perfectly fine for most cars but it is somewhat off road. It is about 1hr 30mins from Florence by car and both Sienna and Arezzo are about 30-45mins away and represent what you would want to see in a Tuscan town. Monte San Savino is the closest town with shops and is around 25minutes drive, a very good supermarket, restaurants and cafes are all there. The hosts were great, very helpful and kind, their responsiveness was fantastic, with any issues being dealt with quickly.
