A perfect italian mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The house was in a lovely mountainside location with beautiful views. The surrounding areas were excellent for exploring rustic Tuscany, with many lovely little villages dotted around for us to explore. We enjoyed our evenings relaxing on the terrace, using the BBQ to cook fresh food from the markets. The days when we didn’t feel like cooking we ventured up the hill to the on site bar/restaurant, adjacent to the pool. There we enjoyed some really tasty traditional Italian food made with all fresh produce from the local area, proof of this was the handwritten menu! The swimming pool had breathtaking panoramic views of the valley below and we spent a couple of evenings just drinking at the bar by the pool soaking it in, a big reward for just a 5 minute walk up the hill! The house was close enough to Pisa and Florence for us to make a day trip to each, with a toddler in tow. However out of all the places we visited we fell in love with Castagneto Carducci, a perfect example of a sleepy Italian town with friendly locals and ice cream to die for, just a 15 minute car ride down the mountain. Overall we would definitely go back again and again, perfect for our little ones during the day and us adults in the evening!

Tolle Sicht - nettes Haus

  • 4 of 5
Das "Le Rondini" ist ein nettes Eckhaus mit Garten rundherum. Man kann teilweise schön in die Ferne blicken. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet. Es hätte noch ein klein wenig sauberer sein können, aber das war der einzige "Nachteil". Der Pool ist riesig, aber es wird immer Musik gespielt, mich hat das nicht so gestört. Die Straße zum Strand es sehr kurvig, hier sollte man immer Kaugummi parat haben, falls jemandem von so was schnell schlecht wird. Castagneto Carducci ist ein sehr malerischer kleiner Ort und der Strand unten in Donoratico bietet neben mietbaren Liegen auch endlose Weite, wer lieber fernab der vielen Touristen liegen möchte. Hier kann man einen sehr schönen Urlaub verbringen!!

Owner's Response: Ich bin so froh, Sie genießen Ihren Urlaub in Le Rondini. Es tut mir leid Sie die Küche nicht sehr sauber gefunden. Wir werden sicherstellen, dass es nicht in Zukunft passieren wird. Sie haben mir gesagt, dass Sie gerne wieder kommen und bleiben im nächsten Jahr und werden Sie herzlich willkommen.

Nice view - nice house

  • 4 of 5
We liked "Le Rondini" very much, especially the nice view. The size was perfect, the kitchen was well equipped. In some corners there could have been more cleanliness. The pool was huge but they were playing music all the time, maybe not everybody likes that...For me and the kids it was ok.
A winding road leads to the beach, my kids needed always chewinggum to prohibit sickness. The Beach at Donoratico is perfect and Castagneto Carducci (the next "city") is really beatiful and a nice spot for dinner and short walks.

Enchanting Get-Away in Tuscany

  • 4 of 5
We spent a delightful week at La Civetta, tucked way in the remote mountains between Monteverdi Marittimo and Sassetta. The villetta was lovely, the pool delightful and refreshing - this is obviously a popular weekend spot for Italians wanting to escape the heat and hustle of nearby cities. The small villages in the area offer a true taste of Tuscany, friendly people, quaint cafes, delicious food. Close enough for day trips to Pisa and Florence, and with the closest beach only 8 miles away, our only regret was that we didn't have twice the time to explore the area!

La Civetta

  • 4 of 5
La Civetta is beautiful and well equipped. The patio is like an additional room, that we have intensively used during our stay. The pool can be reached easily by a lovely little path and is a wonderful place to relax. Cloud and her husband have affectionately assembled a map with a lot of information about the region, the beaches, restaurants etc. This map has been extremely helpful.
The only constraint that we would make in our praise, have been the cupboards that we partly couldn' t use because of the unpleasant smell inside.
