We had a wonderful stay in the apartment. The attention to detail was amazing. Stefano was brilliant, he showed us around the village and presented us with a basket of essentials and a plate of individual cakes. I would highly recommend his apartment to couples wanting to explore the surrounding areas. I would rate his apartment above the 5 stars if I could!
Arriving at a non descript gated entrance in the dark and loading the suitcases into our well equipped and quaint apartment was a joy in itself, however awaking to the wonderful sunrise creeping through the curtains over the windows at the end of the bed and pulling them open to reveal rolling farm land, with only one house in sight, was INCREDIBLE!
Over coffee on the balcony we read through the welcome book and info on the property, with real excitement at the prospect of making pizzas from the dough bought at the local pizzeria in the pizza oven and cooking huge T-bone steaks on the BBQ! We didn't actually get round to doing this however as we had too much chilling by the pool to do on this holiday.
Which is AWESOME!!!
It was created using a huge natural pond, which was lined with pool lining, it's filled with fresh water on a regular basing and has really low chlorine content but is crystal clear and due to the white lining it has a beautiful green hue and so it was like our own private Cenote! BOOM!! Oh and the fridge in the pool plant room was a serious nice touch! It felt like the kind of house we would have if we buy and convert a property in Europe, a real home from ...possible future home!
We arrived at the beginning of September and the only snag was that lots of the top restaurants in the very local area were closed either for the winter or just to have a break.. we still found good places to eat though as they are abundantly obviously!
On our last day we visited Maremma National park for a long walk to reduce the pain on the scales on returning home, this was a great idea from the wife.. we walked for 1.5 hours to the end of the beach at Marina di Albrese and had the whole beach to ourselves where I constructed one of the ubiquitous driftwood beach huts that line the beach.. after a last hurrah of Tuscan indulgence of prosciutto on focaccia with fresh pecorino and truffle paste... well we had walked along way!!
On the walk back with the sun setting we picked up as much plastic from the beach as we could, a local storm must have whipped it up so as we'd enjoyed the beauty of the beach so much we wanted to give something back. I hope you all agree and do the same! Ciao Cheers laters
