Pool / Spa
We absolutely loved this location in the countryside but so handy for visiting Tuscany, we enjoyed immensly Florence and Siena had had some amazing drives through the countryside with wow views at every turn. The accomodation was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, nice terrace area and lovely pool. Kind and helpful owners too and the internet and air conditioning a definate plus point. It was very hot and mainly we made use of the pool, but did use the tennis court, and enjoyed walks around the estate and into the nearby village. We would certainly return.
Best apartment in Chianti
This charming apartment looked perfect for a couple so we decided to give it a try. Everything was expected and we had a great time here, also thank to the owners who were so nice and friendly. We loved absolutely everything, and we really appreciated the fireplace in the dining room, around which we used to read a book and relax in the evening. Even though it’s not an independent house (it’s part of a bigger and totally environmentally friendly establishment) it turned out to be silent and welcoming, just what we needed. Thank you to La Bella Toscana for their great job!
