A perfect blend of old and new
The property is a mix of old and new in an untouristy part of Tuscany. It is located in a wonderful old hilltop village with fantastic views but private enough to be away from it all if you so wished. The house has a modern kitchen that is well supplied and also modern bathrooms with good plumbing. The wifi was also reliable and quite speedy. Johnny was always available for any questions and his father Carlo was also extremely helpful. The village had a small grocery that had the basics and two good restaurants. I would thoroughly recommend this property to holidaymakers and would most definitely stay again.
Beautiful, historic house with stunning views.
Unique and wonderful
We were two couples and stayed in the house for the week of June 18 through 24. The weather was very hot but the house was very comfortable. Johnny, the owner was there to meet us when we arrived and showed us everything we needed to know. The house itself is beautiful and has everything you need. It is very clean, the garden is wonderful and if you are looking for relaxation and quiet, this is the place for you. Pereta is a small 14th century village perched on a high hilltop so from the terrace you can see miles of Tuscany, very beautiful. There are a couple small restaurants in the village and the food is excellent. Everyone is very friendly but not many speak English, however communication is not difficult. There are lots of interesting things to do in the area for day trips. The four of us loved it and we recommend it strongly.
Delightful Home in Historic Village
We thoroughly enjoyed out stay here and found that the online pictures accurately represented the character of this house. The Owner met us upon arrival and spent extra time telling us about the area and possible places to visit. The house was very clean, well stocked and very livable. It worked well for our family of four. There is a wonderful garden connected directly to the kitchen area which received sun from early morning until sunset. The town is very small but has 2 great restaurants and a small market which we used every day for bread, milk, cheese, etc. Cars do not drive through the town's stone paved streets so this makes the house's experience even better. Hot springs were 30 minutes away, the ocean was 30 minutes away and southern Tuscany towns were all about and very beautiful. We reached Florence in 2 hours and the house is less than 2 hours from the Rome airport. This was one of the best houses that we have ever rented and the fact that the Owner's frequently use this home themselves adds to its character even more.
Unsere größte Enttäuschung
Normalerweise sind wir keine Schreiber von Bewertungen, aber diesen Aufenthalt können wir nicht unkommentiert lassen. Wir haben in den letzten Jahren über 20x Urlaub in Italien gemacht, davon die meisten in historischen Gebäuden.
Der Start in den Urlaub über FeWo war vorbildlich, auch ein netter Kontakt mit dem Vermieter. Er ist uns beim Preis entgegenkommen. Bei der Anreise haben wir uns aufgrund Sprengarbeiten in Österreich deutlich verspätet. Dies war für den Vermieter kein Problem. Im Ort angekommen, hat er uns am Stadttor abgeholt, da im Ort ein Fest war und eine Anfahrt an das Haus nicht möglich war. D.h. Gepäck ca 300 Meter tragen, der Vermieter hat mitgeholfen zu tragen. Im Haus hat ein netter Geschenkkorb gewartet. Dann ging das Grauen los: im ganzen Haus sind Salpeter Schäden mit aufgequollen Putz. Es ist vermutlich den ganzen Winter nicht beheizt worden, entsprechend kalt, nass und klamm war alles im Haus. Alles war feucht und es stank nach Dreck, Muff und Schimmel. Die Flecken auf dem Sofa: Blut/Rotwein? Die Putzfrau hat gut 20 cm vor dem Rand seit Jahren nicht mehr geputzt. Lt. Johnny sei sie sehr engagiert....... Es waren Tiere und Insekten in sämtlichen Größen unterwegs, von denen wir nicht wussten, dass es sie überhaupt gibt. Überall hat es gekrabbelt. Im Klo waren braune Spuren..... Lt Johnny (Vermieter) sei dies in einem alten Gebäude ganz normal. Auch ein ca. 6 cm großer Skorpion hat mit zum Inventar gehört. Dieser wurde noch von Johnny getötet. Wir hatten unsere Katze dabei. Das Haus hat die Einrichtung, als ob eine Familie erst 2 h vor uns ausgezogen ist: alte, dreckige Puppen, Stifte, Papier...... Wir sind in der gleichen Nacht wieder abgereist, an Urlaub war in diesem Haus nicht zu denken. Schade, der Ort hat Charme gehabt. Auch das Handling nach unserer Abreise war unfair: Es gab keine Rückerstattung, selbst die Reinigungskosten sind voll einbehalten worden. Angeblich wurde versucht, das Objekt anderweitig zu vermieten. Wir hatten uns seit Monaten auf diesen Urlaub gefreut und sind noch nie in Italien so eingegangen, zumal dieses Objekt alles andere als günstig ist.
When the guests arrived they seemed tired for the long drive but very happy about the house.
Next morning we received a call where they told us that they had left because there was a scorpion in the house and they were worried for the cat without mentioning any of the nightmarish scenario that they describe in such detail in their comment: incidentally dirt and bad smell is one of the reasons where you can get a full refund...
We immediately went to the house and noticed that the front door was wide open, the house was perfectly clean (as it normally is and confirmed by other guest comments) with no such trace of the ' wild beast inventory' they refer to!
We believe that they left for another reason and just wanted their money back.
We wish they would have confronted us on their issues instead of calling when they were already 2 hours away.
Regarding the cleaning fee we will surely reimburse them as soon as possible- in the spur of the moment this just didn't occur to us.
Altogether sorry this couple and their cat could not enjoy their holiday as planned, for one reason or another.
Phantastic old house with a lot of charme and a wonderful terrasse and view
We had a very remarkable time in the house! It felt like home, the owner was always reachable, had lots of nice tips for sightseeing tours.
It's a very nice little town, with a mini market (where you can learn a little bit of italian language while shopping) and 3 good restaurants.
Parking is safe outside the citywall. We'll be back!
