Clean, quiet and well kept property
The owners, Alessandro and Lucia are very welcoming. They looked after us during our stay. Nothing was too much trouble. The owners helped by guiding us to the places to visit and local restaurants.
Beautiful, wonderful hosts, fantastic and comfortable rooms.
Our family thoroughly enjoyed our vacation here. It gave us the opportunity to rest and relax but was close to local amenities. Alexandro and Lucia were wonderful hosts who were available to help and give direction as needed. We will definitely return if we come back to Italy!!
We made new friends with other guests
Alex’s place is very welcoming and comfortable, nestled on top of a hill, it’s quite and peaceful. There are common areas for residents to meet up and and have a local wine together. We ended up making friends with another couple from vancouver. Rooms were spacious and everything worked well in the baths and kitchen. There is lots of parking by the side of the house.
lex welcomes new guests with water and wine and gives a good overview of local restaurants and shopping.
Owners were extremely pleasant and helpful. The facilities were very clean and spacious compared to other places stayed. The nearby golf course was in walking distance and beautiful. Only wish I had played. The only negative is the narrow one lane roads you have to drive on.
Perfect place to relax
What a wonderful place to spend a few relaxing days! It is set in an olive orchard with a beautiful covered veranda and a pool! Alessandro is a perfect host! He is friendly and informative! He took us to a local farm to buy meat, eggs and wine. What a treat! The apartment is rustic, but clean and efficient. There is a golf coarse just up the hill and many hill towns nearby to visit. I would highly recommend to fellow travelers.
Suberb Tuscan Apartments
My wife and I booked a one bedroom apartment in July 2015. The apartment was good and reasonably well equipped. The gardens are lovely and Alessandro (the owner) spends a great deal of time maintaining them and the large swimming pool to a superb level.
There are seven apartments in the building but apart from seeing other guests in the garden or at the pool you would not be aware that the whole place is not your own. There are several tables around the garden to sit or to eat at and there is a barbeque for the guests’ use.
Parking is only a few metres away, close to where Alessandro and his wife stay when renting the apartments. The property is surrounded by olive groves and is on a very, very, quiet lane. (Some cyclists might go by.)
The property is remote and has no immediate neighbours. It is a short drive (10 minutes) to supermarkets. Bars and restaurants are a drive away.
Alessandro and his wife Lucia are often around but not intrusive. They are good for recommendations. They will also tell you where the herbs are in the garden for your use.
If you are considering this property you will know that Pisa, Lucca, Pistoia and Florence are all within reasonable driving distance.
I highly recommend this property.
Many thanks for your review, you were the perfect hosts, we value our guests, our goal is to make them feel at home. I hope to see you in Marchiano again. A hug Alexander & lucia
