Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

To make it short. For all those who love a peaceful and quiet holiday in Tuscany nature. The panoramic views from the house over the valley are breathtaking. The house itself is really perfect with all the antique furniture, you just feel more than comfortable. We had a wonderful time in Molbena house although the weather wasn't that perfect first two weeks of may but we will definitely come back !!!

belle maison grande, propre, route difficile

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cette location (propre à notre arrivée avec des équipements modernes et des pièces très grandes). Nous avons pu obtenir sans aucune perte de confort 2 couchages supplémentaires (soit 10 personnes). La piscine est immense et très propre. Vue splendide sur la vallée.

La situation géographique était telle que nous la souhaitions à moins de 100 kms de l'ensemble des sites que nous voulions visiter (Toscane et Ombrie) et relativement proche de la voie rapide (15 kms).

Il y a cependant deux bémols concernant notre séjour :

Un chemin très accidenté avec un nivelé assez important sur les deux derniers kilomètres (montée en 1er, nous ne prenions pas les véhicules sans une bonne raison).

De très nombreux taons ont quelque peu perturbés notre séjour à certains moments de la journée ainsi que deux nids de frelons que nous avons rapidement exterminé).

A part cela le propriétaire est très disponible pour répondre à nos demandes.

"We spent two weeks in this beautiful house with a breathaking view over some Tuscany''s valleys.

The house itself is very comfortable and large enough to allow everybody to have its own space when not we didn''t gather all together.

We spent most of our time outside, using the huge bbq or laying around one of the largest swimming-pool I ever saw in a house."

Take the Florence-Rome (A1) motorway and turn off at exit 'Val di Chiana'. Then proceed on the Siena-Perugia freeway towards Perugia for about 3km and take the exit to Cortona. Once you reach the town of Camucia, follow the directions to Montanare/Mercatale and when you reach Montanare proceed on the same road for about 1km. You should then find on your left a green gate, just before the dirt road that leads to the house.
