We stayed in this beautiful house for almost two weeks. The location is ideal, it's 15 minutes from the center of Firenze by car, but when you are at the house it is really serene and it feels like you are far, far away from any city. The house is at the end of an old road. I would describe it as a small compound where some families live. In the middle there is a beatiful pool with great view on the typical Tuscany landscape. You share the pool with the people on the compound, but it feels like a private pool, since there arn't a lot of people around.
The appartment is perfectly taken care of. Everything felt completely new and it was really well cleaned. Laura is just the perfect host. She picked us up at the center of a small town nearby the house, since the car navigation had some trouble finding the house. When we entered the house she left us a bottle of wine, home-made yoghurt ice (best we had ever) and delicious chocolate cake.
I would recommend this house to everyone, BUT ONLY if you have a car that you can use. In a way the house is quiet secluded, since you would have to walk a rocky road for 2 kilometers if you want to get to the nearest town. With a car you can easily occupy yourself for two weeks. Siena, Firenze, San Gimignano are all 'within handreach' and we even went to the beach one day which was only a 1,5 hour drive.
Normally when you rent a place the pictures are always better than the actual house, but in this it's just vice versa. Everything is better when you are just there.
Laura, thanks again and we might see you again :)!
