Pool / Spa
We enjoyed immensly our stay at Archi. It was just what we wanted, only a few apartments at the house, lovely pool, close to a little village. We spent a lot of time walking, there are some lovely trails in the woods nearby and the countryside is really beautiful.
The apartment is very comfortable and spacious, we had many meals on the covered terrace right off the kitchen which was lovely. We did a bit of touring, Florence nice but we preferred Siena and San Gimignano both nearby. It was a very relaxing vacation and we enjoyed it very much.
Accommodation tax indicated is per day per person. The costs for each extra bed is max € 70.00
