A fantastic,perfect and clean property a terrace with a view enchanting

5 of 5
We loved the property it has loads of character, space and charm. The apartment felt safe and was in a safe feeling district. The terrace has amazing views of the Duomo and over the city of Florence, breathtaking something to see in every direction. We were greeted on arrival by the hosts son a lovely charming and helpful young man who gave us useful information on places to eat, where to buy groceries, places to visit and great information on places he thought were good to go to, like the best ice cream place and he was right. A property we will be returning to and recommending to friends who want to visit this beautiful city.

Exceptional cottage with great pool in a stunning area of Tuscany

5 of 5
We were very impressed from the outset with this sympathetically converted hamlet. The property itself, The Hammock was exactly the standard as show in the photos so were not disappointed. The view and the pool exceeded our expectations and ticked all members of families boxes including the teenagers. We mixed the days with relaxing by the pool and visiting the local hill top towns all which had their own character. I would definitely consider returning and would highly recommend the property. Claudia, the owner and Fabio were very attentive throughout the booking and greeting process. Thank you for letting us share in your wee piece of paradise.
