Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We recently had the pleasure of staying at apartment Salvia where we received a warm welcome, helpful instructions on use of the many amenities and suggestons on places to visit in the area. Salvia is the best equipped lodging we have found in more than a decade of renting holiday homes in Europe. We were particularly happy to see a large refrigerator, as it cuts down on trips to the grocery store, although the "Pam" store is quite close and easy to reach using the new highway. The location at San Galgano is convenient to San Gimignano, a must-see in this area, as are Siena and Volterra, among a host of other charming towns. After a full day of touring, we enjoyed relaxing under the canopy with a glass of local wine, guide books in hand to plan our next outing. Bella! Bella!

Home in the middle of Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for a week and it was fantastic! The owner and his family were very helpful and the apartment was wonderful. Very clean, welcoming, had everything we needed, and well maintained. It is as described except that the family who owns it went above and beyond to make our stay pleasant! We would certainly come back to stay again.

Our children had an amazing week petting the donkeys, playing on the property, and enjoying the countryside. It is in a great location for visiting hill towns and for exploring Tuscany.

Country comfort, great views, San Gimingnano close

  • 5 of 5

Within easy walking distance of Ulignano, and a short drive from the many-towered San Gimignano, the small villa containing the apartment “Salvia” was wonderful. Also within easy driving distance was the town of Poggidonsi when shopping was needed. Nearby Certaldo, a city with a wonderful ancient walled section that can be accessed by a funicular, was also close.

A reclaimed farm building containing two apartments, the villa had been completely and beautifully restored. With views of distant farms, hilltop towered towns and olive groves, the grounds had several outdoor sitting areas. Our favorite overlooked a small pond (fishing allowed!) where we feed bread to the resident turtles and fish and cheese to the very friendly “gatto”. It was a short walk down the road to a small river with a dam. You could hear the water running when you sat outside in the evening.

Although the area was perfectly safe for walking, the gated entrance not only instilled a sense of privacy but also gave us a very “Italian Villa” feeling.

We would unhesitatingly recommend “Salvia” to friends!

Calme et tranquillité au centre le Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Cette location est idéalement située entre Florence et Sienne. La situation géographique de la maison permet de rayonner afin de découvrir les principaux sites touristiques de la Toscane.

La maison est agréable et bien restaurée, idéale pour une famille de 4 personnes. L'équipement est suffisant :

- 2 douches, c'est appréciable

- un peu de vaisselle supplémentaire serait un plus.

Le point fort est le jardin, que dis-je le parc ! la place pour se faire bronzer ne manque pas, coin salon de jardin et barbecue pour profiter de l'extérieur (prévoir produit anti moustique), possibilité de se promener dans les vignes voisines. Que du bonheur pour qui a envie de se reposer et déconnecter, en pleine campagne.

Et cerise sur le gateau, Léandro, le maitre des lieux est aux petits soins pour ses locataires. Il est d'une gentillesse rare. Ce fut un plaisir de faire cette rencontre.

Le rapport qualité/prix est excellent pour moi (d'où mes 5 étoiles)

Une suggestion serait d'avoir une piscine, car en été, la température grimpe vite dans cette région.

A presto.

WONDERFUL; VACACIONES PERFECTAS

  • 5 of 5

It is a wonderful place, inside the Toscana countryside; We have spent one of the best holiday time in our lives. There are a lake, just for you, where you can fish or just enjoy the beautiful sights... or an excellent wine (San Gimignano or Chianti). It is ideal for kids, they can play with any danger, a lot of green places just for them, feed some animals (cat, fish, turtles, hens, monkeys...).

It is a warm and friendly house, nice, tidy and pretty and have everything you can need. There are a medieval market very close (Certaldo, 8 Km) and you can enjoy of San Gimignano, wonderful village (8 Km) or the main cities of La Toscana (Siena, 35 Km; Pisa, 80 Km; Florencia, 55 Km) or smaller village, also close to the house, like Volterra (35 Km), San Miniato (40 Km)...

And, maybe the best it is Leandro and his family, absolutely kind, lovely and charming people, which are made to our family feel like in our home... Thanks a lot Leandro!!!!

Just a problem... In the future, we always will compared with via San Galgano and are going to be difficult to find something so perfect!!!

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung zum Wohlfühlen

  • 5 of 5

Wir (zwei Freundinnen) waren für 6 Nächte in dieser wirklich sehr schönen Ferienwohnung.

Die Restaurierung der ehemaligen Scheune ist äußerst liebevoll durchgeführt worden. Überall merkt man das Herzblut, das die Besitzer in dieses Haus gesteckt haben. Bei den Materialien wurde nicht gespart.

Die EG-Wohnung Selvia ist großzügig mit gut eingerichteter Küche und jeweils einem sehr schönen Bad zu jedem Schlafzimmer. Man schläft sehr gut in den Betten. Alles ist noch ziemlich neu und gepflegt, auch sehr sauber.

Es war wundervoll, die Türe aufzumachen und vor dem Haus zu frühstücken.

Die Kfz-Stellplätze sind sogar mittels einer Art "Carport" vor der heißen Sonne geschützt, man hat wirklich an alles gedacht.

Der Kontakt zu den Eigentümern war äußerst angnehm. Auch im Vorfeld hat alles wunderbar geklappt. Doriano, einer der Besitzer war fast täglich vor Ort, ist aber sehr diskret gewesen, so dass man ihn gar nicht bemerkt hat. Wenn es aber Fragen gab oder man ein Problem hatte, so war er sofort zur Stelle und äußerst hilfsbereit und zuvorkommend.

Das Grundstück ist sehr groß und äußerst gepflegt.

Die Lage ist - obschon es nicht allzuweit von der Hauptstraße Poggibonsi/Certaldo entfernt ist - trotzdem sehr ruhig. Die nicht befestigte Straße vor dem Haus staubt etwas. Wir haben das Haus sehr schnell gefunden, da die Wegbeschreibung wirklich super war.

Es gibt einen etwas weiter enfernt liegenden kleinen See auf dem Grundstück, in dem man Fische fangen könnte. Auch ein Grill steht bereit. Mücken hatten wir keine !

Kleine Kinder in der darüberliegenden zweiten Wohnung hört man natürlich, sind aber nicht wirklich störend. Wenn man natürlich absolute Ruhe möche, dann muss man auch die zweite Wohnung oben drüber mitbuchen...

Der Garten verfügt über zwei - extra für eine jede Wohnung zur Verfügung stehende - überdachte Sitzgruppen und Liegestühle. Jede Partei ist also separat wenn das gewünscht ist. Ideal geeignet ist das Haus für zwei befreundete Familien geeignet, da man die beiden Wohnungen auch verbinden könnte....

Einzig mit dem Internet (W-Lan) und Mobilfunknetz hatten wir etwas Probleme. Man hatte nicht zu jedem Zeitpunkt Verbindung, jedoch in einem der beiden Schlafzimmer hat es dann doch regelmäßig geklappt.

Die Gegend ist gut für regelmäßige Ausflüge geeignet.

Alles in allem wirklich ein zu empfehlendes Domizil, sicherlich auch für Familien mit Kindern!
