"Wonderful peaceful stay in the heart of the Tuscan countryside"
The apartment at Radicondoli was wonderful. Just perfect for our requirements. It had everything you could need (except an ironing board). It was exceptionally clean, had an amazing shower and 2 lovely bedrooms, one with an outstanding view of the countryside.
The apartments were converted buildings which had been done up to a very high standard. The complex also had a lovely, clean swimming pool, which we used nearly every day of our stay. Although we didn't have our own courtyard to our apartment, we could use any of the tables and chairs in the gardens. There were quite a lot of steps in the apartment, so it wouldn't be easy for people with disabilities.
It was kind of the owners to provide a complimentary breakfast on our first morning, which was very tasty, this enabled us to meet another family who were staying also.
The owners were around most of the time, so if any questions arose, we could ask their advice etc, and they were lovely.
The village of Radicondoli was a short walk (approx 15 mins) up a hill where we found 3 restaurants, we ate in La Pergola, which had a fabulous view of the countryside and the food was good and also Il Grande and the food there was great.
The village only had a few shops, no freshly baked bread, but we found a supermarket nearby (Casole Van d'Elsa) which had everything you could need.
Overall, we had a lovely, relaxing stay. I would recommend bringing a car to enable you to visit some of the places nearby, but there were plenty of bus stops around, but we didn't use the buses so I can't vouch for them!
