This impressive, independent villa stands in beautiful, landscaped gardens on the edge of the village, just a short stroll from a small selection of restaurants and a pizzeria. As well as the large swimming pool and sun terraces the garden is also home to a well maintained tennis court. Internally the house is spacious and well furnished with a well equipped kitchen and even a games room featuring a card table and pool table. Air-conditioning has recently been installed in all first floor bedrooms to provide cool respite in the sultry, Tuscan evenings. The historic town of Cortona is just 4 kms away and Lake Trasimeno is a 20 kms drive away over the Umbrian border.

Farnham Family parents and brother
Could do with a good clean. En suite could do with an upgrade the toilet was loose and loose wiring was hanging over the shower, for this reason we didn't use the shower. There was a lot of noise from dogs barking, crying and howling both during the day and at night which was a real shame. We did have a lovely holiday and didn't let any of the above spoil it for us. The owners where lovely and very helpful Angela made us a fantastic flan one evening. The area is amazing we loved Cortona.

Surrey UK Group
The Villa is extremely spacious and outdoor area good. One minor detail, the villa sleeps 9 yet there is only 4 sun loungers. The owners are very friendly and live next door but this is not an issue. overall a lovely Villa however there must be a dog compound very near as dogs bark constantly all day. if you can manage to block this out then its a great holiday accommodation.

Cortona Group
A very spacious villa, ideal for our extended family with plenty of bathrooms!
We enjoyed the large pool and quiet location, apart from neighbourhood barking dogs.
Very useful supermarket, bar and pizzeria at the end of the street which we made good use of.
Corona is a pretty, nice size town with some interesting shops. We recommend Dandano restaurant and the butchers on the same street who supply them with their meat.

Hertford Family (the eldest child is at school)
Lovely villa, photos on the website don't do it justice. Fab large pool, tennis court, table tennis, pool table, loads to do. Lovely area, great views.
Shame the downstairs rooms aren't air conditioned as it got very hot!

Ludlow Family with grown up
Villa Sapphire was a lovely villa for us to stay in. It has 4 double rooms (one double + ensuite) 3 twins and a single room. We are a family of four with grown up children and it suited us to the ground. On Google maps it is labelled as Cascina Zeffiro. There is air conditioning in the three upstairs bedrooms and fans for the two downstairs bedrooms. The villa is roomy and contains a full size pool table. Outside under a roof is a table tennis table and table football and the grounds contain a tennis court as well. The pool is quite simple - rectangular. It is about 8 ft deep at one end and 4 foot at the other. The pool is not overlooked by any of the neighbours as it is well screened by hedge. Sun loungers and tables and chairs are around the poolside. There is a well stocked small supermarket just 200m away run by a very friendly family, although it doesn't have any plug adapters. Siena is an hour away, Florence about another 45 mins away. Just to the south is Lake Trasimeno. Just to the east are some beautiful hills that allow you to look down onto the valley below. The owners introduced themselves at the start of the week. They live next door and we didn't see them again for the rest of the week which we thought was fine.
There are two kitchens one upstairs and one downstairs. The villa is roomy and keeps relatively cool despite daytime temps of 36.

Last minute booking, ideal small village setting. Villa good size and acommadating - although the outside living area could be improved. The pool was not the cleanest, however the hosts were helpful when needed.
