We have traveled to many rental units but never have we found one this exceptional. In every way this apartment provided what we needed.
The spotless rooms were so well equipped, everything we needed to live as at home. The usual rentals have a few pans, a few dishes, some silverware, etc. Maura had EVERYTHING. Dinner service for many, all matching, and for any type of food. Pans and preparation equipment for a range of levels of cooking. Excellent stove, refrigeration and washing machine. All of the cleaning products and supplies. We did not have to purchase anything but our food. The included parking arrangements were also superb.
And Colle Val d'Elsa is a hidden treasure. The walk from the apt. toward the upper village provided all we could hope for to experience life in this small town. The marvelous architecture, the Churches, museum, and shops were delightful. A special highlight is the superb quality of the food options, from Farm to Table to Michelin star.
Traveling to the rest of Tuscany was convenient, we had a car but public transit was available.
If you venture off to the lower village there is a weekly market and other crystal related sites. Voltera, San Gimignano, Siena are all within an hour. The Chianti trail is near by. Less than an hour to Florence if you use this as the home base. All so convenient.
Our host was warm and accommodating. Although we had few requests, she was prompt and accessible. She checked in several times to assure that we were satisfied.
We had been looking for a small Tuscan experience and were certainly found it here!
