Depends upon your needs and comfort level
We stayed here in February, during the off season. While we were here, Italy was hit by the Beast from the East, a Siberian cold front that brought unusually cold, windy, and snowy weather to the region. The apartment was cold at times, when the radiator heat cycled off. This left the apartment uncomfortable, a situation that probably would not happen most times of the year. The couch in the kitchen area was also uncomfortable, which had nothing to do with the weather. A more comfortable seating option would be helpful, since it is the only seating option in the apartment other than dining chairs.
If you are planning on exploring the Tuscan countryside by car, this is not a bad option. First, there was an on-site parking space available, which was very helpful. The surrounding countryside is beautiful and tours of wineries are no doubt available in season. Be aware that there are no restaurants in Pelago, so you have to go elsewhere for restaurant dining. Resources are available for cooking in the apartment. There is a very nice Co-op grocery store around the corner from the apartment and a butcher shop down the street in the other direction. Pot lids for at least some of the pots would have been helpful for cooking.
If you plan on using this apartment as a base for exploring Florence, Pisa, Lucca, Siena, etc., it is possible, but not as convenient as basing yourself in Florence. Regular trains run from Pontassieve to Florence. It is about a ten minute drive from Pelago to Pontassieve and there is a large (and always very full) parking lot at the train station, or you can take a bus from Pelago into Pontassieve. From Florence you can take trains to Pisa, Siena, and Lucca. Staying in Pelago adds an extra step and loss of some time efficiency in the process.
The apartment is small. There is one bedroom, and a set of bunk beds in the entry area. There is no seating other than the couch in the kitchen/dining area. The bathroom was fine and there was no shortage of hot water for showers.
The owner was very nice and responsive. The wi-fi connection problem was resolved promptly and when we noted that there was no coffee maker in the kitchen, she went out and purchased a new moka pot.
non sono assolutamente d'accordo con la recensione dei signori Fee per i seguenti motivi:
- i signori sono capitati nella settimana più fredda di tutto l'anno, penso quindi che invece di fare delle belle escursioni si siano messi a verificare ogni minimo dettaglio e non hanno considerato che hanno pagato 13 euro a persona a giorno compresa biancheria ecc.
- per pretendere un servizio come descritto dovevano andare in città e spendere 130 euro a persona a giorno.
Penso inoltre che nell'annuncio era ben evidenziata la lontananza da firenze e che i signori non si sono neanche ben informati su i servizi, mai nessuno si era lamentato di questo.
Sehr nette im italienischen Stil voll ausgestattete Fereinwohnung
Nette typ. italienisch eingerichtete Ferienwohnung an einer Straße gelegen, hellhörig, sehr zuvorkommende, sympathische Vermieter. Im Zentrum eines kleinen Dorfes gelegen, Einkauf im kleinen Supermarkt um die Ecke. Viele Möglichkeiten zu wandern in den nahegelegenen Wein und Olivenhainen, 25 km nach Florenz, gut erreichbar mit Zug von der nächstgrößeren Stadt.
Casa accogliente posti incantevoli gentile la signora Mariangela forse un po più di pulizia.
