                                                                                        My wife and me (50+) were visiting Tuscany fourth time in recent 10 years. This year we spent a week in this great apartment near San Gimignano and a week on the cost (Calabrone). This apartment was definitively the best we have had during all stays - great compromise between Tuscany tradition and the convenient, new equipment. Very well equipped kitchen, bathroom (including washing machine), no surprises versus apartment description at all. Superb pool and surrounding area - even if on the pictures pool looks a bit bigger, it very nice - you can sit on the sun-chairs directly next to pool or lay on the well managed grass area. The view from the pool is marvelous - you can delight Tuscany hills and Volterra. You also have a small but nice private garden with a lot a plants. Ideal place to have an evening wine! If I would have to find any cons (still, with overall apartment evaluation 5/5) I could say that the last 2 km of the road is quite dusty (gravel road), but that's the price you pay if want to be a bit aside - usually such apartments have last 1-2km of the gravel road. Overall we really loved the apartment and can definitively recommend it. Thanks to Daniele and Fabio for all support during the stay.

Our 2-storey lodgings were delightful, so picturesque, the views magnificent, changing all the time with the light. A little rustic – no hair dryer, microwave, AC, washing machine or American-style coffee maker – but this is the countryside, and we managed and loved it! And the internet service was excellent. And when we figured out how to use the espresso coffee maker we had wonderful coffee! We sat outside every morning and evening in our private little garden. A car is a must, in my opinion, and driving in Italy is much easier than I had been led to believe. I would not want to drive in the cities but country driving for me was most enjoyable and a lot of fun. On the days we went to Florence we drove to the train station in Poggibonsi and took the train in, a very pleasant ride. I would love to return to Tuscany and would definitely stay here again.

You can easily access San Gimagnano and Volterra 10Km and also a huge grocery store at Certaldo. You can visit Chianti area as you want, perfectly situated between Firenze and Sienna. When you're back from the visit you can enjoy the calm in this village (only 6 houses) with a huge pool and a view of volterra and the country side of Toscana.
