Very happy to hear that you spent a memorable holiday at the villa!
As for the comments on the barking dogs, we must say that it is the first time that we are reported this as an issue, very likely caused by some occasional wandering wild animals bothering the dogs in the surrounding area.
Tough Montalcinello is a small and secluded village, it should be born in mind that this is a bit the characteristic and at the same time one the most appreciated aspects of the Tuscan countryside. However there are quite a few things to do & see within 15 minutes’ drive (the famous abbey of San Galgano, hermitage Monte Siepi, the historical center of Chiusdino, numerous ancient castles, spas, bathing rivers, etc.) while 30-45 minutes by car to reach larger towns are actually not so many considering the pleasure of traveling in the green and pleasant countryside
It’s a pity that we were not immediately reported the issue with the dishwasher drain, as we could have solved it immediately by advising the home manager or sending along a technician if necessary.
