Tuscany is very VERY beautiful
This place was wonderful. We have stayed in many self-catering places in Europe over the last couple of decades and this place has by far the best views. I could sit all day and look at them. And, a couple of times, I did, once from inside when there was a big storm. The massive windows really helped with this.
Daniele, the owner, was very helpful before arrival and all his information was provided quickly and in detail.
The house is clean as a pin thanks to Anna and is very well equipped. The beds were very comfortable and, with the quiet that comes from being somewhat remote, we slept very well.
September is a great time to go to Tuscany. It is neither too hot and nor have the winter chills set in. Towns have slightly fewer tourists to crowd you out, although there are still plenty of them. Again, the view from many of these hill towns, like Montepulciano, are breathtaking. We did eat out a bit but as we learnt more about local produce we also ate in. The kitchen has everything you need to cook for a family. We were three but there was evidence that rather larger groups had stayed.
The neighbour, Giacomo, was there to help, although he speaks no English. He interrupted his olive harvest to safely retrieve a juvenile starling that got stuck in the chimney. His neighbour, Suzanne, who is Swiss and speaks good English, has a number of cats, one of whom has no teeth and was very friendly. But it was clear that if you don't like cats, they expect to be shooed away.
It should be said that it is about a mile from the nearest town and so somewhat remote but for us that is an ideal distance. It is a nice walk to get there. There are lots of really beautiful walks in this area, although it is best if you get your navigation right!
The very clean communal pool is supposed to be closed at the end of September but Daniele kindly arranged for it to be left open a few more days. It wasn’t that cold and certainly very refreshing. I can imagine that in the hot months it would be great to lean on the side of the pool and admire the view, which is even tremendous from there.
We have never stayed in any place twice but with this one we are very tempted indeed.
Wonderful, restful house with a spectacular view
We had a wonderful stay in Daniele's house. Our hosts were really helpful in advance, providing excellent directions, even giving us restaurant recommendations for our drive from Rome. The house is spacious, very comfortably furnished and well equipped. It's very private, and the outside deck has the most amazing view - a great place for a glass of wine in the evenings. Our kids loved the pool, which although communal, we largely had to ourselves. The house is well located, a short drive to Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino. Throughout our stay Daniele checked up on how we were enjoying the holiday, and offered great advice on where to eat and things to do. A great house, highly recommended.
Einfach nur super
Das Objekt entspricht absolut genau der Beschreibung. Netter Kontakt mir dem Vermieter.
Das Haus steht in einer traumhaften Lage auf einem kleinen Hügel. Der Weg zum Haus führt von der Straße über eine kleine Schotterpiste. Genau das richtige für meinen Subaru Outback. Traumhafter Blick vom Haus in die Natur. Der Pool immer gepflegt und sauber. Fünf Minuten bis zum nächsten Restaurant und 20 Minuten bis zum Supermarkt. Ein perfekter Ort zum Entspannen und Entschläunigen.
Das Haus und die Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht.
Sämtliche Restaurants in der Umgebung sind zu empfehlen. Sehr gutes Essen und gute Weine.
Toskana von ihrer schönsten Seite.
Ein sehr sehr schöner Urlaub
Insgesamt war es ein sehr sehr schöner Urlaub. Der Blick über die Toskanische Landschaft ist ein Traum. Das Haus ist mit allem ausgestattet, was man im Urlaub benötigt. Im Fernsehen gab es zwar nur italienische Sender, was uns jedoch nicht störte.
Der nicht beheizte große Pool wurde jede Nacht gereinigt, so dass am nächsten Tag die Abkühlung immer wieder eine Freude war.
Die Anfahrt zum Anwesen ist nicht mit jedem Auto zu bewältigen, da die Schotterpiste teils sehr steil und teils mit ausgespülten Querrinnen extrem schlecht zu befahren ist. Hier sollten die Besitzer etwas tun.
Fazit: Das Haus ist auf jeden Fall weiter zu empfehlen.
Great accomodation in scenic Tuscany
We definitely recommend this place to our friends. The view is fantastic!
The pool is a little walk down hill, but it is a big pool, with a great view. The pictures do not do justice to the property, and especially the scenery. The beds are great, though one room is a little tiny for two persons.
The kitchen is well equipped. Finally the outdoor cooking facilities are outstanding: the pizza oven and the huge barbecue make it worth the effort to skip some nights of eating out.
