                        We stayed for one week in casa Beppe and our friends at casa Marta. Both of houses have a fantastic views. We were lucky with weather for first days, children and we too, really enjoyed the pool. Houses are simply but nicely furnished. Bring your soap and you have to buy toilet paper, salt, sugar,pepper.. Te owner Paola is really nice and friendly, all booking process from beginning was very easy, I get always very quick reply for all my questions. Paola even call me at arrival day in the morning to confirm our arrival time. We haven't visited this time Siena or Florence. This time we visited Montalcino (15 min drive), Montepulciano, Castiglione del Lago, Pienza and design outlet the Mall (1h15 m. drive), you will find there Gucci, Prada, Tod's and many others brands. A shop in San Giovanni is small, in Sinalunga is much better choose. Thank you and best regards from Finland, Helsinki; Olga, Janne, Liisi, Peppiina, Isra, Mervi, Jurkki, Simo, Ismo
