If you like being away from the main road in the heart of natural countryside this is great. The owners were fantastic and their olive oil the best I have ever had. It is part of a larger restored development with a shared large pool but there were not that many people there when we were, which made it very quiet, great for us. The wildlife and scenery were beautiful, hoopoes, baby deer and incredible butterflies. Facilities are all a drive away so I would say it suits peole who enjoy splendid isolation. Gardens excellent, just sat out on the patio reading into the evening, chianti classico to hand. The flat itself was cool due to large rooms and perhaps basic in some areas but for the price and the surroundings, superb.
great holiday, helpful and friendly owners
My husband and I were looking for a relaxed holiday to unwind and we got it. We stayed in the one bed roomed Leccio apartment, set up on top of a hill top overlooking a valley full of vines. It is one of about 12 dwellings that have all been converted from the old farm house and outbuildings and very tastefully converted. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. There was appropriate furniture for both indoor and outdoor living and the kitchen was well stocked with crockery and cutlery. The owner was very helpful and friendly and answered all our questions about Italian living as well as questions about the flat and the surrounding area. His English was a bit hesitant but we understood each other OK. The best views down the valley were from the swimming pool. The pool was clean and well maintained. The tennis court was concrete - a bit crumbly in places but good enough for us. You approach the hamlet via a windy dirt track which was great. Tuscany was more hilly than we expected but was beautiful. We visited many of the local hill top towns which were beautiful and great to wander around with eating places and enough history to blow your mind! We didn't eat out much as we preferred the patio!! We would definitely recommend the place to a friend and in fact are thinking of going back ourselves!!!
Thanks - Sheena
You can take stressless for granted
Very nice apartment. The kitchen is perfectly equipped with all useful things, such as toaster, coffee makers for italian and amerikan coffee, freezer compartment and cookware for a lifestay! We brought along our own pillows because the italian ones are flat and tight. We found enough adapters for the three pin to two pin plug connectors, but were happy that we brought along a multiplug for our smartphones and tablets.
We stayed the 3rd week in September.
Sitting outside on the terrace, most of times, closing my eyes, I heard absolutely nothing! No car, aeroplane, no voices, radio or else.
Maybe a soft wind in the olive trees or a thick bumblebee passing. Absolutely suitable for mental healing and forgetting overtime working hours. Strongly recommended.
Hele rustige plek in goed onderhouden woning
Een prachtige plek in alle rust met een mooi zwembad en een geweldig uitzicht. Airco op de slaapkamer en dat was erg prettig.Wij waren er in september en de andere appartementen in het blok “ de verbouwde schuur” waren niet verhuurd dus heel veel rust ook om ons heen. Een goede plek om zowel de Chiantistreek te ontdekken als de richting van Volterra en San Giminangno. En Florence was met 35 minuten natuurlijk ook goed te doen.
Goede vakantiewoning in een oud gerestaureerd authentiek gehucht in Toscaanse stijl.
Prachtig gelegen, heel rustig en centraal gelegen in Toscane, goede uitvalbasis voor uitstapjes Mooie uitzichten. De vakantiewoning oogt beter dan op de foto's lijkt. Een updaten van de foto's is aangewezen. Vriendelijk onthaal.
Fuori dal caos
La location posizionata alla testa di un piccolo borgo ristrutturato in mezzo al verde della Toscana risulta un punto strategico per visitare tutti i centri abitati della zona, una volta rientrati in appartamento la tranquillità del borgo esalta ancora di più il senso della vacanza. Tutto perfetto.
The hamlet is situated half-way between Castellina in Chianti and Poggibonsi, inside a natural park with endless woods, vineyards and olive groves. Siena (30 km), San Gimignano (15 km), Firenze (42 km), Volterra (56 km) are all within easy reach, so that you can combine cultural tours and relaxing walks in contact with nature through the Chianti countryside. The colours of this area are a feast for the eyes all the seasons of the year. The magic view from these apartments will recharge your mind
