Ein sehr schöner Urlaub im Herbst (November) in der Toscana.

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus Casa Bianca ist wunderschön gelegen zwischen Pisa und Florenz.

Wir waren das erste Mal (mit Hund) in der Toskana und unsere Erwartungen wurden hinsichtlich Landschaft, aber auch der Unterkunft übertroffen. Auch im November ist die Toskana eine Reise wert.

Das Ferienhaus Casa Bianca ist liebevoll eingerichtet und gestaltet. Wir haben es einem mehr als einwandfreien und sehr sauberen Zustand vorgefunden. Der Wohlfühleffekt war auf Anhieb gegeben.

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Urlaubszeit und haben schon für das nächste Jahr wieder eine Buchung an Marica und Luca übermittelt.

Marica und Luca sind sehr sehr liebe Menschen, die einem stets mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stehen.

Das perfekte Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Das Ferienhaus von Marica und Lucca ist wunderschön, perfekt eingerichtet und liegt ruhig in der Mitte zwischen Florenz und Pisa. Ideale Ausgangsposition für Touren in der Toscana. Das Haus hat 2 gleich gute Schlafzimmer mit jeweils tollem Bad und superschöner Dusche. Insgesamt für 5 Personen. Unten gibt es noch ein drittes Bad mit Dusche. Marica hat uns nett empfangen und eingewiesen, und uns sogar am Sonntagabend noch Pizza und Wasser besorgt. Sie war immer per whatsapp erreichbar und hat kleine Dinge schnell erledigt. Viele gute Tips von ihr zu Ausflügen und Orten, Supermarkt und einer tollen Badebucht bei Livorno. Gemüsekorb vom Vater und Brombeermarmelade von ihrer Mutter. Man fühlt sich sehr wohl. Toller automatischer Kaminofen mit Pellets und ein grosser wenn auch kühler Pool haben uns erfreut. In diesem sehr neuen Haus fehlt nichts und alles ist liebevoll und sauber geplant. Unbedingt das historische Montopoli ansehen. Wir kommen wieder.

A beautiful villa finished to a high standard.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in an excellent location and only a couple of miles from the main Fi-Pi-Li road, which is a direct route to Pisa, Florence and the airport.

When we arrived at the villa we were met by the owners, Luca and Marcia. They were extremely helpful and even brought us to the local supermarket so we could buy some supplies. They left us plenty of suggestions for local restaurants and places to visit.

The grounds of the villa are stunning and maintained to the highest standard. The pool area is very clean and a perfect size. The covered patio provides some welcome shade from the midday sun and contains seating, a large dining table and a hammock which we really enjoyed.

Inside the villa is also finished to the highest specification and again is spotlessly clean. The kitchen area is well stocked with everything we needed and much more.

We had a wonderful holiday and were sad to leave. We would love to return again in the future.

Das Haus ist traumhaft schön und liebevoll eingerichtet. Zum Wohlfühlen - es fehlt an nichts. Der sehr gepflegte Garten und der tolle Pool laden zum Entspannen und Erfrischen ein.

Das Haus befindet sich in bester Lage, um von hieraus die Toskana zu erkunden.
