Fully heated with Air Conditioning (if required). Starting in the bedroom-at the back/side of the flat. . There was a large wardrobe, with lots of hanging space, double bed, and radiators, and additional bedding/pillows if required. The window at the end of the bed overlooked the vineyard, but the view was hampered by the bricks... not a problem. Fully fitted bathroom, with bath, shower, sink and toilet. Then up a step into the lounge/kitchen, which has been furnished with TV, Settee, Bookcase, Fridge/freezer, Sink, Oven and Wi-fi. There is a patio outside, with a table and chairs and parasol is available. There are fresh herbs in the garden, with olive trees. A washing machine is available, along with an iron and ironing board. We could not have asked for better hosts - Jane & Giampero know the area . There is a booklet/guide to the accommodation which also recommends various restaurants....for whatever type of food you fancy. We walked round Pontassieve / Pelago which was most enjoyable. As we were on a driving holiday we had a couple of days when we went to Pisa and Florence by train. We drove to the station parked the car and then caught the train. It was fairly easy and cheap to buy tickets. (The one drawback, is that the flat is quite a way out of town, so we could not walk into town have a meal and then walk back.) The Alba was very clean and well maintained. Yes, I would go back and would gladly recommend it to a friend. ************Excellent We were late arriving so Jane emailed us a shopping list, which we sent back with our requirements. Our shopping was waiting for us when we arrived.

                                                                                                      I cannot recommend this place more ! Firstly we had a very disastrous start to our holiday, the hire car company didn't take debit cardswhen we went to pick up the car, we were devastated as we knew we needed this car to get to the villa. So there we were me and my girlfriend at 10 o'clock at night stranded after a days travel, I rang Jane the host not expected much more than "I'm sorry to hear but ...." That didn't happen, Jane was absolutely lovely on the phone and emailed us with directions from the airport to the centre of Florence, where we would catch a train and meet her at the Pontassieve station. Bearing in mind this was very late at night I cannot overstate how Jane basically saved our holiday. After all of drama and we got to the villa it was beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. There was a helpful guide in our room with suggestions of restaurants and places to visit nearby. The wine tasting at the Castle just above the villa was a highlight of the trip, a great location and was very welcoming of a complete wine novice such as myself. To sum up the hosts are lovely, the location is brilliant, a variety of things to do close-by and remember to correctly book when getting a hire car! Tom and Lola

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The owner was very friendly and helpful, we had a fantastic week-long relaxing stay and would love to return.
