Tutto perfetto!

  • 5 of 5

Accolti con gentilezza squisita dalla signora Gigliola , abbiamo passato un soggiorno perfetto in un'appartamento pulitissimo e curato in ogni particolare. Le giornate di sole ci hanno permesso di godere anche della terrazza. È veramente speciale e la colazione all'aperto con vista sul panorama circostante è il migliore inizio! Comodo punto di partenza per visitare la Toscana: è vicino a tutto, ma abbastanza lontano per stare tranquilli. Veramente consigliato, ritorneremo sicuramente!

vacanza nella casa di Gigliola

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati in Toscana nell'appartamento della sig.ra Gigliola, siamo stati ospitati in maniera squisita dalla padrona di casa che ci ha accolti e viziati con una sorpresa all'arrivo: una torta deliziosa ed ha continuato con la piena disponibilità in caso di bisogno. La casa è spaziosa e luminosa. Consigliamo vivamente a chi intenda fare una vacanza con la sensazione di sentirsi a casa.Esperienza da ripetere sicuramente!

Just 5 km from the mysterious Abbey of San Galgano and his sword in the stone, just 10 minutes from Petriolo, Monticiano is the ideal point from which to explore Tuscany. Siena can be reached in 30 minutes in an hour and arrive in Florence, if the road is not there to admire soffermerete Colle and San Gimignano. Located on the border of the provinces of Siena and Grosseto allows you to move between the beauty of the two areas (Maremma and Chianti). with extreme ease. If you want to go 50Km drive from the beaches of Castiglione della Pescaia Follonica, but with the same distance to reach the summit of Mount Amiata.
