une maison où il fait vraiment bon vivre

  • 5 of 5

Idéalement située à quelques kilomètres, cette demeure offre l'une des plus belles vues sur les collines toscanes. Elle est parfaitement aménagée, avec élégance mais sans ostentation, ce qui permet de s'y sentir rapidement chez soi. La salle de billard est parfaite pour les ados. Les pièces à vivre sont vastes, idéales pour des moments de partage en famille ou entre amis. La cuisine est formidable, remplie d'ustensiles de toutes sortes pour donner envie de se mettre aux fourneaux ! Et enfin, une mention spéciale pour l'accueil, très généreux, des propriétaires, discrets mais toujours prêts à rendre service et faire connaitre cette Toscane qu'ils adorent. Une adresse rare et précieuse...
