Traumurlaub!!!

5 of 5
DAS war mit ABSTAND der schönste Urlaub, den wir je hatten!!!! Wer Stille, Frieden und die Natur sucht wird hier voll auf seine Kosten kommen. Die Wohnung ist sehr stilvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet. Die Küche ist mit den modernsten Geräten ausgestattet und einem großen geräumigen Kühlschrank. Luca der Vermieter ist der beste Gastgeber den man sich vorstellen kann – er war immer für uns da. Schon vor dem Urlaub hat er uns alle Fragen sofort beantwortet. Da er perfekt englisch und italienisch spricht war die Verständigung kein Problem. Als wir da waren stand er uns mit Rat und Tat zur Seite und hat uns tolle Tipps gegeben wo man hinfahren kann. Und der Service den er anbietet – unschlagbar! Uns ist einmal während dem Kochen mitten in der Woche um 21 Uhr abends das Gas leer gegangen – eine kurze Nachricht an Luca und 10 Min. später war auch schon sein Mitarbeiter mit einer neuen Gasflasche da und hat uns diese eingebaut. Das nenn ich Service! Das Schlafzimmer hat ein rieeeesen großes Bett, bestimmt 220x200m, einfach nur genial, wir haben dort soooooo gut geschlafen! Am Pool – den wir auf Anfrage nutzen durften – haben wir ebenfalls ein paar entspannte Tage verbracht. Unser kleiner Hund war natürlich mit dabei und er hat den Urlaub ebenfalls sehr genossen! Das Wetter war perfekt für ihn: nicht zu heiß. Er konnte auf dem Anwesen frei laufen und wir haben tolle Spaziergänge rund ums Anwesen mit ihm unternommen. Wir haben uns sehr willkommen und aufgehoben gefühlt und kommen bestimmt wieder!

Lovely property in a peaceful, secluded setting.

5 of 5
We stayed at this lovely house for two weeks in August 2017. It is a delightful property within a 5 minute drive of the little village of Pari. Siena is about a 20/25 minute drive away and it is a similar distance to Grosseto. The house is about 800m up a small road (which is, for the mostpart, properly surfaced and fine for a normal car). The house itself is entirely secluded and not overlooked in any way. As currently furnished the house is ideal for a couple. Upstairs is a bathroom with shower and three bedrooms one of which is furnished with a double bed, one with a (comfortable) double sofa bed and the other as a dressing room. Downstairs there is a further shower room , a sitting room with a two seater sofa and a couple of chairs and an eat in kitchen. Externally there is quite an extensive garden with a spa pool, shaded terraces and a pizza oven. We were met just outside of Pari by Tracy, an English friend of the owner, Marco, who contacted us several days before arrival and she took us to the property and gave us a few recommendations of things to do. Other than that we were undisturbed throughout the holiday but could contact Marco and Tracy if the need arose. There is limited information at the property on local restaurants, etc so you will need to use your own resources and investigations. The house does have mobile internet but do watch the data usage - we managed to blow it with a (long) business Skype call early on and it took a couple of days for Marco to be able to top it up. Pari has one restaurant - fortunately it is a delight and amazingly reasonably priced (It is called Le Due Cecche or Sandra and Barbara). It is the bar in the tiny square of Pari - don't be put off by the plastic chairs and ice cream signs - it is great (Closed Weds) . There is also a quirky little trattoria in Casale di Pari (about a 10 minute drive from the house) - again, simple local food at a great price (Closed Monday). There are also a couple of other pizzerias/restaurants within relatively easy striking distance but you will need to drive to all the local places particularly at night. Pari has a tiny local shop and there is a supermarket at Paganico (c. 15min drive). There are a number of wineries within a relatively short drive of the property. Many of these are tiny so it may be worth calling ahead. The coast is less than an hour away and we had a very nice trip for lunch to Castiglione della Pescaia . A great property - highly recommended.
