The most beautiful place to spend a week together

5 of 5
Loredana's property is the perfect setting for an idyllic week in Tuscany. The views are stunning and the surrounding area has so much character with endless hilltop towns to discover and explore. We had a brilliant time and would recommend it to anybody looking for a place to unwind. Loredana was very helpful before we arrived and during our stay, and we thoroughly enjoyed an afternoon chatting to her by the pool whilst we were there. Thank you Loredana and we hope to see you again soon.

Review for stay from 03 June 2017 to 17 June 2017

5 of 5
Mit drei Familien und 10 Personen im Haus. Riesengroße Villa mit riesigem Park, komplett abgeschirmt zur Straße. Viel Schatten, da sehr viele Bäume, schöner Pool, wunderbare Sitzgelegenheiten verteilt im ganzen Garten. Die Besitzer waren sehr hilfsbereit. Alles sehr sauber und sehr gepflegt. Unsere Erwartungen wurden mehr als erfüllt. Wir würden jederzeit wieder diese Villa buchen. Durch die Größe des Hauses und des Gartens (Pool ets.)ist der Grundverbrauch des Stroms sehr hoch und es bietet sich an, darauf zu achten. Selbst wenn man extrem sparsam mit dem Stromverbrauch umgeht, überschreitet man die Freigrenze um mindestens 50%. Das sollte man im Voraus mit einkalkulieren.
