Tuscany forte

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this place! We’ve never made vacation at the same place twice before, but when we planned our next summer vacation we were thinking about going back to that place a lot and even the kids were demanding to return to “the house”. We were a bit afraid that it wouldn’t live up to our meanwhile high expectations since our stay last year was so lovely, but it turned out to be just perfect. We now knew where to buy food and where that exceptionally good drinking water can be bottled for free and which restaurants serve excellent gluten free food (my wife has celiac disease). I’ve set-up our family hammock again between two olive trees in the garden and due to the lack of neighbors could practice playing accordion in the garden. This year I’ve brought my big binoculars and enjoyed roaming the wide view over Tuscany and the awesome stars at night. We made more day trips by car and stumbled about an excellent jazz festival in beautiful Volterra, enjoyed a big music festival in Castellano Maritima and went to a street art /acrobatic festival in Rosignano Maritima and one day we all had fun at a high rope course. And –of course- we made regular day trips to the beach, which is about 15 minutes by car.

Luckily it cooled down at nights considerably and we didn’t need the A/C at all to get some sleep but could let the windows and doors open without being eaten by mosquitoes thanks to the modern fly screens all round and enjoyed the sounds of nature in Tuscany instead. You are really living in Tuscany landscape and not just looking at it. We did some hiking in the close vicinity and earned some complains from the kids but afterwards they told us that they’ve enjoyed the walks. They found lots of stones and much alabaster, there even once was an alabaster mine quite close by. The very friendly landlord showed up every other day to check on pool water quality and to water some plants. Unfortunately we don’t speak Italian and he doesn’t speak English or German, so communication is not easy when their daughter is not around.

However, we definitely found what we needed and what we came for: A beautiful, quiet and private place to relax, well equipped but not big and luxury, with a private pool, a wonderful view and a nice garden with olive trees to put up a hammock. We’ve enjoyed good food and wine, culture, music and a bit of adventure in the area and had some nice days at the beach. Three weeks were too short.

We will come back, definitely.

Romantisches kleines Haus in ruhiger Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren begeistert und unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen. Es ist keine umgebaute Scheune sondern alles höchstens 2 Jahre alt. Das Haus ist zwar eher klein, aber für uns passte es gut. Wir Eltern schliefen im Schlafzimmer, die beiden Kinder (5 + 8 Jahre) auf dem Schlafsofa im Wohnbereich. Die Ruhe und der weite Blick auf die wunderbare toskanische Landschaft, der große Garten mit gepflegten Pool nur für uns, das war Urlaub und Erholung pur! Das Haus hat ringsum Fliegengitter, aber für den Aufenthalt im Freien sollte man speziell in den Abendstunden auf Mücken vorbereitet sein. Das fußläufig erreichbare Land-Restaurant ist zu empfehlen und durchgängig geöffnet, falls man mal keine Lust auf selber kochen hat. Das Meer ist etwa 15 Autominuten entfernt, Pisa und Florenz gut mit dem Zug ab Rosignano erreichbar. In der Gegend sind mehrere Restaurants die sehr leckere glutenfreie Pizzen anbieten. Einziger Wehrmutstropfen ist die große Chemiefabrik Solvay, die von vielen Orten aus das schöne Panorama aufs Meer verschandelt und über die Jahrzehnte mit der Einleitung von Schadstoffen ins Meer den Strand bei Vada weiß gebleicht hat. Wir sind lieber etwas weiter südlich bei Cecina ans Meer gefahren.

Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und wir hätten uns gerne mehr mit ihnen unterhalten, aber leider können wir kein Italienisch und die englisch sprechende Tochter war nicht immer dabei.

Alles in Allem ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt. Wir kommen wieder!
