Our stay here at Machiavelli has been absolutely magical! From the beautiful villa to the warm and lovably staff, everything has been wonderful. Our three children felt comfortable and welcomed and loved playing on the grounds among the beautiful landscape and sculptures. The wonderful staff went out of their way to make certain that all members of our family felt comfortable and pampered! Tuscany is absolutely breathtaking and Villa Machiavelli has been a special place in which we were able to fully immerse ourselves in our surroundings. We can't thank you all enough for making our time here memorable and unforgettable! - Felix B.
