Lovely spacious apartment, the cleanest we have ever stayed in. Absolutely spotless! Beautiful location! Our apartment was right by the pool which was a lovely area to sit/swim in. This is the second time we have come to Sant’Ilario, and both times we have had a lovely holiday. Staff are always helpful, it is a beautiful place to come to, pool area is well thought out and lovely to spend time in and the accommodation is so clean and comfortable? We'll be back!

Very good, clean and well appointed. Great location. Equidistant between Florence & Siena and many other places in between. Your knowledge of the resort and surrounding area was excellent and allowed me to make a booking there and then. Throughly enjoyed the holiday and would recommend Essential Italy (and have) to anyone. Thank you.
