Gabriele and Patrizia are welcoming, relaxed hosts who have a super little apartment just right as a self catering base for a week in the Val d' Elsa countryside. Their driving directions were easy to follow, and the apartment was well equipped. We loved the little garden which was delightfully warm in the late October afternoons even though the property is on a hill. We highly recommend this apartment and would certainly book again if returning to the area.
Set in a picturesque rural location, the property offered us the perfect place to relax and get away from it all. It’s well located for those wanting to do site seeing in Florence, Pisa and Siena.” As it’s just around an hours drive from each. Very convenient for stunning San Gimignano just 15 mins away.
The property could be described as a beautiful little 2 story house with kitchen with living area down stairs and bedroom and bathroom upstairs. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is excellent (hot and powerful).
The kitchen although small offers plenty of facilities and enough space to prepare a meal. There is a small well maintained garden with outside table with 4 chairs to enjoy the evening over a bottle of wine.
The property is part of a complex has 2 pools, tennis court, children’s equipment. The complex was once included a spa resort with restaurant which unfortunately has since gone out of business. However the residents work hard to ensure the grounds and facilities are immaculately maintained.
The rural location does mean that a car is essential, as even the closest restaurant would involve a 30 minute walk down unlit country roads. Our host Franca was very attentive and ensured we had someone to meet us and show us around on arrive despite our heavily delayed flight meant we didn’t arrive until nearly mindnight.
Would highly recommend for those looking for a quite life. But will require a car to get around.
