Nice apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment is within walking distance of the beautiful village of Barberino Val D’Elsa. Very friendly and helpful owners live on ground floor but there is a separate entrance to this & the apartment above. The apartment has spacious private terraces & is extremely clean and well equipped. Ideal for exploring San Gimignano, Siena & Florence. The village has a good variety of restaurants & a delightful organic wine bar & shop connected to the La Spinosa vineyard. We would have no hesitation in recommending this place.

A marvelous 10 days

  • 4 of 5

Barberino is the perfect spot to visit all of Tuscany. Each day we took off with our rental car in different direction and found amazing surprises of phenomenal views and ancient villages all around us. We railed to Florence but otherwise driving was easy and fun. The key element of ease of driving was the 4G WiFi devise we rented from Europecar. It worked seamlessly with the smartphones gps. Our apartment was perfect and especially enjoyed the balcony for morning coffee and meals. Michele and Alberto were marvelous hosts. ReNae and John

Owner's Response: Thanks Renae and John for the fantastic review, you have been very nice hosts, we would have liked to meet you more often but we were very much taken from our farm activity in Montieri, where we have a beautiful and large chestnut tree. We do not understand based on your review, why four stars and not five? we would like, to improve our structure, to know where, thank you very much and a dear greeting from Michelle and Alberto

Beautiful spotless apartment in a charming town.

  • 5 of 5

Barberino Val D'Elsa is a lovely small town and close to all of the other towns and wineries of the Chianti Valley. Our hosts, Michele and Alberto, we're welcoming and helpful. In the entrance area of the building they have maps and brochures on everything you could be interested in. They were very attentive but not intrusive. Spotless apartment with a modern kitchen and beautiful bathroom. We hope to return some day.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was sparkling clean and had everything we needed, and the owners were extremely accommodating, right down to insisting on carrying our luggage up and down the stairs. It was a perfect location for visiting all the small Chianti towns and is close to Florence, Siena, Pisa, and San Gemignano, and the owners have all necessary information and maps for getting around. We loved sitting with a glass of wine on the terrace and enjoying the beautiful country view.

Perfect for exploring

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very comfortable and perfect for exploring the Tuscan countryside. We traveled north to Cinque Terre (overnight)and south into the Val d'Orcia from here.

The owners are very accommodating and friendly. They shared their homemade olive oil with us, when we needed some to cook our dinner. The place was very clean. Our only complaint is that we had booked this as a two bedroom, but upon our arrival, the second bedroom was locked. We were never given access to it. Yes, we were only 2 people using the apt, but we had booked it as a 2 bdrm, not just 1. We could have addressed the situation with the owners, but didn't want to get into a confrontation, so that was our choice. We never ate in any of the restaurants in town, but returned to Ristoro L'antica Scuderia in nearby Badia a Passignano - delicious food!

It's always important to me to have a view out my window when in Tuscany, and this apt didn't disappoint. We had beautiful warm days (autumn), but still not quite warm enough to use the veranda. Overall, a very lovely apartment.

Owner's Response: Thanks anyway for the many appreciations Corinne, but we need to clarify some points: the closed door is not the second bedroom but a small utility room service, the second bedroom is obtained as described in the saloon, thanks to a very large sliding doors system is completely independent. If you wished to have, each your bedroom was enough to ask and we would have prepared the sofa as second bed that thanks to the addition of a latex mattress offers excellent comfort. We remember that your stay was in November, and you have had a particularly mild weather with temperatures during the day were over 20 degrees centigrade. Sin you have not taken advantage of the excellent restaurants in the village or a very short distance. The rest except the extreme discretion, guests impeccable in every way.
