House in fantastic location!

The location of the house is fantastic. It's quiet, the view is simply amazing and the atmosphere in the house is cozy. We were three families there and what more than enough space for all. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms ... just perfect for everyone. The kitchen and the living room werewolf big enough for 9 people. In short: a very nice, spacious, spontaneous house. The atmosphere feels very quiet and relaxed, but so close to the vibrant everyday life of Tuscany. Even the location of the beach is perfect: just 2 km far away. There are lots of beaches to choose from, so-called 'spiaggies libere' (public beaches) and 'Bagni' (beach resorts). For Those who like going on day-trips there are many destinations to choose from. Picturesque villages are not distant and the cities Follonica and Grosseto as well. We would really love to spend our next holidays in this house.

Great holiday

  • 4 of 5

My family and I had a great time in this house. We had all the amenities that were needed and the Baldelli family was very accomodating when we had questions and/or request. We had lots of space and there was a corner for everyone in the house and so it was easy to also have privacy from each other if needed. Moreover the house was very charming and cozy. The only downside which was also an advantage was that the house was high up on a hill so walking to the beach was not an option. Having said this, the house has a great view of the sea.

Buena casa para familia grande

  • 3 of 5

Es una muy buena alternativa para estar cerca de la playa; la casa es amplia y espaciosas, con una vista espectacular. Respecto al equipamiento, la cocina está bien equipada con todos los utensilios para una familia grande (9 personas). La casa necesita hacer una remodelación de sus muebles, que los hay de todos tamaños y estilos, pareciera que solo los muebles de familia que se ham ido acumulando con el tiempo. Con pequeños cambios más una renocavión de las camas (varias de ellas muy incómodas) esta casa es una excelente alternativa para la zona. Importante destacar que para ir a la playa se debe conducir approx 1.5 kms, lo que junto al tráfico de la época son 10-15 mins.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your positive comments regarding the location of our property and its equipment. You seem to have fully enjoyed the contact to nature and the view over the sea and hills you can see from the garden and inside of the house. In fact there are not many private properties in the Mediterranean from where you can admire a 180° panorama with absolutely no human constructions. Regarding the interiors of the apartment, furniture follows different styles as we bought some pieces during trips abroad (for example there is a handmade Tuscan Terracotta floor, Sicilian, Japanese, Thai and Sri-lankan and English pieces of furniture). I am sorry it does not reflect your individual interior design taste but the good news is there are hotels or residences in the area with other (anonymous) styles. Sleeping rooms are big, with a wardrobe, large beds and 3 out of 4 have a direct access to the garden (yes there is a picture for every room). Regarding the distance to the sea, the first 1km is on a street down the hill with absolutely no traffic even in peak season while the other 0,5km are on a main street that in some cases during peak season from 6-7pm may occasionally have some traffic jams.

Haus in fantastischer Lage!

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt in fantastischer, ruhiger Lage, der Blick, einfach umwerfend! Eine Weitsicht, die einem sofort in Bann zieht. Dazu kommt das vorteilhafte Innenleben des Hauses. Wir waren drei Familien und hatten ausreichend Platz, mit den vier Schlafzimmern und den zwei Badezimmern, einfach perfekt. Auch die Küche und der Aufenthaltsraum sind geräumig genug um sich mit 9 Personen gut darin bewegen und aufhalten zu können.

Ein sehr schönes, geräumiges Haus, im einfachen Stil eingerichtet, wobei es an nichts fehlt. Man fühlt sich in vollkommener Ruhe und ist trotzdem sehr nah am Puls des toskanischen Alltags.

Auch die Nähe zum Strand und zu Castiglione della Pescaia (ca. 2 km) sind perfekt. Die Auswahl an Stränden ist sehr vielseitig, vom gut besuchten "Bagno" bis zur grosszügigen "Spiaggia libera", alles in unmittelbarer Nähe.

Des weiteren gibt es unzählige Ausflugsmöglichkeiten in die nahe gelegenen, malerischen Dörfer oder in die Städte Follonica und Grossetto. Wir werden auch nächstes Jahr unsere Ferien wieder gerne in diesem Ferieindomzil verbringen. Herzlichen Dank, Max Baldelli!
