Review for stay from 05 June 2017 to 15 June 2017
Très bien situé pour visiter les alentours. Le site du château est très beau avec son jardin et sa grande piscine. Le restaurant est très bien aussi. Par contre, au niveau de la villa, la propreté n'était pas au rendez vous... équipement de cuisine désuet et usé. Aurait grandement besoin d'être changé. Il aurait été apprécier de fournir un minimum comme par exemple un peu de savon pour la vaisselle et des sacs à ordure (2 sacs pour 2 semaines...) quand on sait que l'on doit payer 95euros pour le ménage final, on s'attend à un minimum de propreté... décevant sur ce point.

Great location for visiting the surroundings. The site of the castle is very beautiful with its garden and large swimming pool. The restaurant is very good too. On the other hand, at the level of the villa, the cleanliness was not at its best ... kitchen equipment obsolete and worn. It would greatly need to be changed. It would have been appreciated to provide a basic equipment such as a little soap for the dishes and garbage bags (2 bags for 2 weeks ...) when we know that we have to pay 95euros for the final cleaning, we would expect a perfect cleanliness ... disappointing on this point.

Beautiful spot - everything was as expected and the hospitality was outstanding. Location is perfect for touring around the Florence area.

Le Castello dans lequel se trouvent certains appartements, et autour duquel sont plusieurs maisons, ou villa, a beaucoup de caractère.
le paysage de Toscane environnant est d'une grande beauté.
Hormis la possibilité de rejoindre Florence par le bus tous les autres déplacements doivent se faire nécessairement en voiture.
