Our stay at Rica was a joy. The villa is very comfortable. We stayed there with 4 couples (our family). When we arrived we were greeted by Damian and Francesca (the owner). A big surprise awaited us at the kitchen. Francesca treated us with a table full of the most delicious Italian food there even was wine from her own vineyard. We recommend this villa highly. Beautiful gardens, nice surroundings. Francesca's restaurant just down the street a treat to have dinner there, ambiance and good food. A place to really call home for your vacation. - Anke V.

Outstanding rental, it is more beautiful in person than the wonderful pictures. It was a perfect location to take day trips throughout Tuscany and come back to a restful oasis. The entire family enjoyed the house, the beautiful grounds and the wonderful pool. The owners were very gracious, Francesca spoiled us the entire week. The family restaurant was just a few steps down the hillside and was excellent. We highly recommend this rental and would definitely return. - Sue & Brian
