  • 5 of 5

We have travelled to various parts of Italy over the past seven years and this was by far the best in terms of location, accommodation and Giancarlo, who was the most charming and helpful host.

The property, both inside and out was extremely well maintained and the gardens and pool were idyllic. The location was superb and was within easy reach of all the main towns of interest. , Castiglione was a short drive away and had plenty of restaurants and bars, all offering excellent value for money, service, delicious food and wine.

Giancarlo was amazing. He never stopped working around the gardens but always had time to help us and advice us on places of interest. We will be recommending Podere Pescia to all our friends and relatives and can't wait to return with our family. Thank you Giancarlo

Owner's Response: After working so long to well maintain the house and the garden it is a great pleasure to have the appreciation of our guests.We give them before the arrival and almost daily advices on places of interests which are not only historical towns but unknown villages,markets,antique markets,village fairs etc.We are of the opinion that a few weeks after the holiday is finished they will not remember many churches or monument but persons or a shop , restaurant , market or how they discovered a little convent will be part of their memories. Grazie Podere Pescia Giancarlo

Angenehmes Wohnen und guter Ausgangspunkt

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben mit Vergnügen zwölf Tage im Appartment "Old England" verbracht. Das Appartment liegt in einem schönen Garten mit Schwimmbad, ist sehr gepflegt, sauber und mit vielen Sammlerstücken dekoriert. Das Bett ist ebenfalls eine Antiquität, aber sehr bequem! Podere Pescia ist ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für das Erkunden und Kennenlernen von Umbrien und der Toskana; der Besitzer Giancarlo hält viele Empfehlungen für Unternehmungen/Besichtigungen/Museumsbesuche bereit. Wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt, Grazie!

Sehr schöne Anlage in zentraler Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für 14 Tage bei Giancarlo zu Gast, sehr netter und zuvorkommende Gastgeber, sehr schöne Anlage mit tollem Pool, tolle Wohnung mit guter Ausstattung. Sehr sauber schön eingerichtet. Exzellente Lage, nur circa 2-3 km vom Ort entfernt, sehr zentral, viele Sehenswürdigkeiten von Umbrien und der angrenzenden Toskana in unmittelbarer Nähe und gut mit dem Auto zu erreichen. Wir kommen sicherlich wieder. Einziger Nachteil ist - wie sehr oft in Italien - das mangelhafte WLAN, mit dem es nicht gelingt, Dinge up- oder downzuloaden.
