Es ist mit viel Liebe und Sachverstand restauriert worden und man merkt, dass es nicht als Ferienhaus, sondern als Privathaus konzipiert wurde. Es ist wie wohnen bei Freunden. Wir haben alles blitzsauber vorgefunden und die Vorortbetreuerin (Dagmar, spricht deutsch) war sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Es ist alles, wie man sich es wünscht! Das Haus ist riesig und mit allem, was man benötigt, eingerichtet. Es gibt eine große, überdachte Veranda, von der aus man einen phantastischen Blick auf die wunderschönen Hügel hat. Der sehr gepflegte Pool liegt direkt am Haus. Im Haus befinden sich 4 Schlafzimmer mit je 2 Betten und 1 Schlafzimmer mit einem Einzelbett. Es gibt 2 Bäder mit DU/WC und eine 3. separate Toilette. Die Küche ist komplett ausgerüstet, so dass man am liebsten einziehen möchte. Es gibt einen großen Kühlschrank mit Gefrierfach. Außerdem Geschirrspüler, Herd und Backröhre, eine Kaffeemaschine und eine Espressomaschine, Toaster, ect. Es gibt eigentlich nichts, was in der Küche fehlt. Wir haben uns noch nie in einem Haus so wohl gefühlt und können es zu 100% empfehlen.

Liegt ganz nah bei San Gimignano und Florenz und Siena ist in weniger als einer Stunde erreichbar. Das Haus hat eine tolle Lage, etwas erhöht mit schöner Aussicht. Die Mieter sind sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Mit dem Pool, der nur für die Feriengäste dieses Haus ist, lässt es sich super nach den Städtebesuchen erholen. Wir würden das Haus jedenfalls wieder mieten, sollte es in die Toskana gehen. Vielen Dank für den tollen Urlaub
