Lovely pool. Amazing panoramic scenery. Very peaceful holiday retreat with only sheep bells tinkling away in the distance. Very clean, quite basic accommodation but we had everything we needed. Very friendly hosts.
Thank you for your review!
We are glad you enjoyed your holidays at Agriturismo Marcigliana with our sheep!
Great week in Tuscany
We joined friends and spent a week here. The converted barn was lovely. There was great attention to architectural detail. Window screens would have given it an excellent rating. Living next to the sheep created millions of flies! The building was a little underpowered. If the water heater and the refrigerator powered on at the same time, we lost all power. And you could only use the oven if you turned off the breakers to the lights! Pietro and family are hard workers. They are busy with the farm from sun up to sun down.
Little things that would have made the week easier--a simple sheet describing where the breaker switches are, where to take the trash, how to use the washing machine (and where to find it). Also, I would recommend charging a little more and including things like toilet paper, paper towels, salt, pepper, oil, vinegar, etc. When you arrive on Saturday afternoon from a long airline flight and you are miles and miles away from any store that might possibly be open, it is hard to get supplies quickly.
Also, to me, charging a euro a day per person for linens implies fresh towels might be supplied at some time--but no, it was one towel per person per week = 7 euros. In spite of my complaining, I would return--it is a beautiful, relaxing place to be!
I could live here it is so amazing!
I loved this place! We rented the unit that faced the building where the sheep get milked, it was quiet, clean and just lovely! The sheep are adorable and only come twice a day. The pictures don't do the place justice, the rooms are large and clean and the beds are comfortable. It is close to many charming Tuscan towns, we had so many fun adventures! Some of our friends even walked to some of the nearby towns. Pietro and his wife are the most charming and helpful hosts! We arrived very late and got lost, Pietro not only met us in town to show us to the house but he waited while we had dinner and joined us for some fun conversation! I would come back again and again!!!! The views are stunning and the property is just enough off the beaten path to be the relaxing vacation you are looking for!
Thank you for appreciating - it was lovely having you! We look forward to having you back! Pietro and Madda xx
Urlaub für Frühaufsteher mit schöner Aussicht aufs Tal
Schöne Aussicht auf das Dorf Radicondoli. Steile schmale steinige Zufahrt zur Ferienwohnung. Satelliten-Kabel-TV, Kaffeemaschine nicht vorhanden, nur eine Espressokanne.
WiFi in Capanna nicht vorhanden, nur am Pool oder auf dem Weg neben dem Haupthaus eine sehr schlechte Internetverbindung. In Capanna ist morgens um sechs die Nachtruhe zu Ende, da neben dem Haus der Melkstall für die Schafe ist (o.k es ist ein Bauernhof).
Pietro betreute uns sehr freundlich, konnte aber am fehlenden TV-Programm oder Internet auch nicht weiterhelfen.
Thank you for your review.
To access the property you need to drive on a 800 meters narrow gravel winding PRIVATE road maintained in excellent condition considering that type of road.
A moka, one of the greatest coffee machine in the world, is always available at our apartments!
As clearly described in the advert, this is an ACTIVE farm with sheep where the genuine farm life still exists with its pros and cons. I am sorry if sheep didn't let you sleep.
The Wi-Fi signal is strong enough by the pool and inside the common room, unfortunately not inside Capanna. Pietro was also kind to set up a table for you near the pool or to give you the key of the common room to let you work inside.
I am sorry you didn't enjoyed your holidays as you wish, especially after the car accident.
I will be very happy to suggest you a more suitable accommodation for your next hoilidays!
Un séjour extrêmement agréable , idéal pour les familles ! Accueil extrêmement chaleureux !
Une vue imprenable sur la Toscane dans une propriété perdue dans la campagne. Les enfants ont adoré s'occuper des moutons et bien sûr profiter de la très belle piscine privée ! La maison est spacieuse et agréable. Idéalement située pour des visites à Florence, Sienne et tous les villages alentour. Après 10 jours passés ici nous recommandons fortement cette location. Merci encore à Pietro et à sa femme pour leur extrême gentillesse !
We all are very glad your family had a great time in Tuscany and you loved our property!
Thank you for staying with us!
