Comfortable apartment near San Gimignano
This apartment was just great: roomy, comfortable and very very clean. Fully equipped and furnished with real taste in country style, something we do appreciate. It’s part of a bigger establishment but in spite of this is very calm and quite. The pool outside was perfect for a fast dip or to linger at, sunbathing and the garden, furnished with table and chairs was perfect for a barbecue.
We loved it, we will recommend. Thank you to la bella Toscana for helping us with every booking step.
Beautiful, we would happily stay there again
Beautiful location set in the middle of the rolling hills of Tuscany. I imagine it would be hard to find a nicer swimming pool & surrounding sun-bathing area. Whilst the pool is shared with a few other properties, we still managed to have the pool to ourselves at various times of the day. The property we stayed in, Voltaire, was clean and very nice and rustic and we would happily stay there again (& plan to). In hindsight,we would have probably paid for the air-con during our stay due to daily temperatures of +35 degrees C, although it wasn't a major issue because Voltaire is a ground floor property with thick walls (the air-conditioning unit is in the main living area, but, I can't comment on it further due to not using it). A car is required to get to La Bella Toscana due to being approx 1Km along a single track road which adds to the charm of the place & really makes you feel you're getting away from it all. We arrived late at night which made this an interesting drive, but, we were thrilled to see our property and La Bella Tosacana in daylight the next morning. Several supermarkets within convenient driving distance. Lovely local medieval town a short drive away (San Gimignano). Good location for touring from with trips possible to Florence, Sienna, Pisa and no doubt much more day trip options. There is a high quality small restaurant on site (pre-booking required) which is popular with the locals. Bread can be delivered fresh to your door each morning for a good price and is much appreciated. Office staff very helpful & friendly
