Overview

About the property

Tower apartment with 2 bedrooms, new shower room, sunny loggia and garden place

La Romola is a small village in the heart of Tuscany, situated 15 km southwest of Florence. In the towncenter you find two bars, a little supermarket and a post-office. In the next village about two kilometers away there is a shop with biological products, owned by a friendly, English speaking lady, a pharmacy and additional shopping facilities. Every day several busses travel from la Romola for example to Florence.La Romola is an ideal starting point for day sightseeings to famous towns like Pisa, San Gimigniano, Siena, Lucca and of course Florence and also the ocean is not too far away.

What can be nicer after an exciting visit full of new impressions than to relax in the garden enjoying a glass of wine and perhaps be amazed by a spectacular sunset, or to watch some fireflies or even a shooting star?!

The apartment in the tower consists of three rooms: One marvellous, bright room with windows towards every direction from which you have a beautiful view over the top of the trees onto the gentle tuscany hills. Here you find two comfortable single beds which can as well be put together and serve as doublebed while in the second room there is a third one. In the sunny loggia, a cosy sofa which can also serve as additional bed, invites you to relax. The modern bathroom with shower and bidet has been completely renovated in 2013 and gives you every comfort.

Included in the prices are linen and towels, central heating, a free parking place as well as free wifi and a small music system with speakers for the mp3-player. The minimum booking is two nights.

On demand we also serve a continental breakfast at a price of 10 €/person and/or a nice dinner including dessert at a price of 25 €/person (additionally drinks). The meals will be served downstairs either in a beautiful room with fireplace or in the garden.

For guests who prefer to prepare their meals themselves there is a completely equipped kitchen at the small chapel in the garden and a sunny/shady private place next to it to enjoy the meals.

We love to have guests from all over the world and are happy to make them feel at home. We are always ready to share a glass of good wine or a cup of cappuccino with you and give you some advice for interesting places or the best pizza around.

About Meike Licht

We are Hans from Zurich and Meike and Melina from Hamburg. Several years ago we have chosen the beautiful Tuscan countryside as new home and in 2013 we have renovated the historical house with a lot of fun, biological products and respect to Tuscan traditions and the nature. The house is equipped with a mixture of traditional furniture in Tuscany style and some unique items. Hans is an artist in designing and creating wooden furniture with metal elements that you find all over the house and in the garden. Meike loves painting and sewing and therefore you can see some walls and textiles in varied colours. Both of them appreciate good, natural food and like cooking and spending time outside in the huge garden caring for the flowers or vegetables or reading interesting books.

We enjoy having guests from all over the world and are happy to share their little paradise with them and make them feel at home. We are always ready to share a glass of good wine or a cup of cappuccino and give some advice for nice places or the best pizza around.

Apart from all the wild animals living in the near forest you will also find three lovely cats who live with us: Mikesch – the grey-white boss, Matisse - a red tiger and the little Lilly – a grey tiger and two tiny turtles - Flossy and Freddy.

Very Nice.

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time here! Meike and Hans were delightful hosts. We did have them cook breakfast and dinner and that was a delectable experience. Hans had some incredible meals prepared for us especially the Parmesan egg plant! WOW. As newbies to Italy we appreciated their openness & friendliness but privacy when we desired it. We were treated like family here. They brought us to town and ate pizza at the local restaurant with us and had awesome ice cream with the local Italians. On top of all this their house is very nice and the countryside is beautiful. Their location was a short drive to many wonderful towns to visit. We would highly recommend staying here and hope to come back soon! Thank you Mieke and Hans for a wonderful experience!

Wundervolles Anwesen in traumhafter Umgebung

  • 5 of 5

Meine Freundin und ich machten eine Rundreise durch Italien und waren für drei Nächte zu Gast bei Meike und Hans. Das Haus ist sehr schön abgelegen ohne direkte Nachbarn und mit einem wunderschönen Ausblick auf die typisch toskanische Landschaft. Wir sind durch die Toskana gereist und haben zum Glück festgestellt, dass die Landschaft um La Romola und Cerbaia zu den besonders schönen gehört. Die Lage eignet sich perfekt für Tagestrips nach z.B. Florenz, San gimignano, Luca ect. Die Zimmer waren sehr geräumig, sauber und sehen sehr toskanisch aus (wie das ganze Haus). Die sehr freundlichen Gastgeber und der abendliche gemeinsame Ausflug mit ihnen in ein wunderschönes Restaurant, machten unseren Aufenthalt perfekt :)!!

Unsere persönlichen Highlights waren die Naturdusche im Garten, sowie der vino blanco von Hans.

Auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen!

Bis zum nächsten mal,

Jacqueline und Jan

Erholsamer Urlaub mit Hund

  • 5 of 5

Gerne denken wir an diesen Urlaub in der Toskana zurück! Die Wohnung mit Turmzimmer ist schon etwas besonderes. War sehr sauber und stilvoll eingerichtet. Wir wurden freundlich empfangen. Meike und Hans haben uns immer wieder wertvolle Tips für Ausflüge und Restaurants gegeben. Es war ein sehr erholsamer Urlaub - gerne kommen wir wieder!

Ein wunderbar entspannter Aufenthalt!

  • 4 of 5

Das was wir gesucht hatten - eine ruhige entlegene Unterkunft von der man aber doch auch einige interessante Städte der Toskana und das Meer in überschaubarer Distanz erreichen kann - hat sich erfüllt!

Meike und Hans sind wunderbare Gastgeber, die mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stehen, ohne "aufdringlich" zu erscheinen.

Das gemeinsame Essen war eine willkommene Abwechslung zu unseren Mahlzeiten unterwegs.

Was wir besonders geschätzt haben war die Outdoorküche.

Frühstück und manchmal auch Abendessen in Morgen- und Abendsonne - was will man mehr :-)

Die Turmwohnung beherbergt alles was das Herz begehrt und ist gemütlich und liebevoll ausgestattet. Für 2 Personen die sich nicht auf die Füße treten wollen ideal!!

Wir können einen Aufenthalt bei Meike uns Hans sehr empfehlen.

Einen Stern Abzug geben wir, da wir den Preis für einmal Abendessen und Frühstück zu Beginn unserer Reise doch zu hoch fanden.

Eine Woche Genuss pur

  • 5 of 5

Mir hat die Woche super gefallen. Das Haus, die Turmwohnung, der Garten sind sehr schön. Ich konnte mich frei und entspannt überall bewegen, mir die Hängematte hinschieben, wie es mir gefiel. Der Service ist wunderbar. Hans hat lecker gekocht, Meike organisiert, als ich die Kunst in Florenz besichtigen wollte. Beide waren sehr nett und aufgeschlossen. Der Charme der Landschaft hat einiges zum Wohlbefinden beigetragen. Auch ohne Auto kann man sich bewegen: der Weg zum Bus ist ein schöner Spaziergang durch den Olivenhain. Ich war rundum zufrieden und komme gerne wieder.

sfeervolle in natuurgelegen woning in buurt Firenz

  • 5 of 5

Sfeervolle woning die prachtig in de natuur in de heuvels onder Florence ligt.

De verhuurders hebben het huis en de tuin mooi opgeknapt en ingericht.

De verhuurders zijn vriendelijk, behulpzaam (telefonisch museumtickets reserveren) en hebben veel tips en ideeën.

Vanuit het dorp Romola kun je met de auto of bus Florence bereiken, vanuit Scandizi met de tram (aanrader!).

Na 4 bezoeken blijft deze locatie hoog op ons lijstje staan!
