SCHÖNES ITAL. LANDHAUS

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben zwei herrliche Ferienwochen in diesem wundervollen Feriendomizil verbracht und uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
Alle Angaben im Online-Inserat bzgl.Lage und Ausstattung waren zutreffend und korrekt.
Das Haus war behutsam modernisiert,stilgerecht ausgestattet und möbliert, sehr gepflegt und sauber.
Die Vermieter-Familie, Nancy und Carlo sowie Andrea und Erik haben wir als überaus freundliche Gastgeber erlebt. Während der gesamten Zeit haben sie uns sehr zuvorkommend betreut und uns,soweit wir es wollten, an ihrem Leben teilhaben lassen (gemeinsames Essen, Einladung auf den Reiterhof, Vorstellung von Freunden, Künstlern, Weinbauer etc.)
Außer Besichtigungsfahrten in die benachbarten Städte und Regionen gibt es sehr gute Möglichkeiten für Wanderungen in der Umgebung des Hauses.
Wir werden dieses Feriendomizil unbedingt im Freundes-und Bekanntenkreis weiterempfehlen.

UN LUGAR MARAVILLOSO PARA ALOJARSE EN LA TOSCANA

  • 5 of 5
Frontignano está en uno de esos montes de la Toscana que uno ve al viajar y desearia visitar y poder ver ,a su vez, desde alli ,el paisaje esplendoroso que al abrir cada ventana se despliega . ¡es increíble estar en un lugar construido hace 1000 años !! Sus paredes de piedra , los frescos en algunas habitaciones , la amplitud y comodidad de sus ambientes , son sencillamente impactantes ¡y con una iglesia en la misma propiedad !! Hay que ir en auto , y desde alli se puede visitar Siena en unos minutos y con la misma facilidad para ir y venir en el dia, visitar Florencia, Monteriggioni , con la certeza que nos esperará un descanso reparador en un ambiente de ensueño . La cocina , con su enorme campana lo traslada a las imagenes de la edad media , y a la mañana podrán desayunar alli con un paisaje de ensueño a los pies . El paisaje de La Toscana desde Frontignano y desde las habitaciones de este castillo, son tan hermosas ¡que duelen!!

The Val di Merse is an unspoilt area south-west of Siena, characterized by a large presence of forests, rivers and streams but also rich in history and cultural attractions. The Upper Merse Nature Reserve is a reserve of flora and fauna of great value for the Sienese territory, while the Museum of Forest Orgy is a place where they have gathered all the evidence of the close relationship between man and environment. They are part of the museum also three routes for walking excursions that are of interest in anthropology, botany, fauna and landscape.

With regard to the cultural and historic attractions, of great value are the Romanesque cloister of the small village of Torri Frontignano and a few kilometers from the famous Museum Antiquarium of Poggio Civitate Murlo, an Etruscan museum of national importance, which contains treasures of the highest quality historical and cultural heritage. The discovery of the Etruscan area of ​​Murlo has contributed significantly to a breakthrough in the research on the Etruscan civilization from the seventh to the sixth century. C.

It is impossible not to mention the famous Cistercian Abbey of San Galgano, a real jewel in the crown of this area as well as a symbol of this land. And 'one of the most important religious buildings of Siena and is the most authoritative expression in the Italian Gothic-Cistercian. A special feature of the Abbey as it is today, is the lack of the roof, so it is particularly striking to see in the dark, to admire the starry sky from a place lost in time. Another popular legend associated with the Abbey is the 'sword in the stone', ie a sword stuck in a rock, from which they originated many legends and beliefs.

For food lovers, Val di Merse, with its endless forests, it is also a place for breeding of pigs of the breed Cinta Senese, a real jewel in the crown of the whole territory of Siena. This kind of goes back to an ancient breed pigs reared only in Siena and surroundings, that produces high quality meats and hams.

For those who love to visit the area, they are definitely places to visit the river Farma, to go to cool off and take a bath, or the Petriolo for a day of pampering, relaxation and renewal through the warm thermal waters. You can go hiking and bicycling throughout the Val di Merse, or go horseback riding in the beautiful Tuscan hills.
