il nostro appartamento si trovava nella dependance del castello, posto meraviglioso. L'appartamento è composto da 3 camere matrimoniali di cui una con bagno in camera e le altre due con bagno esterno (tutti e tre ristrutturati recentemente e con doccia ). al piano sopra c'è un'altra stanza senza porta con due letti singoli.
Il proprietario della villa non lo abbiamo mai visto, per fortuna il custode Rodrigo ha fatto il possibile per farci avere la legna ed accedere il camino. Quella casa era gelida pur avendo richiesto l'accensione dei termosifoni con anticipo ( considerando il fatto che il riscaldamento si paga a parte 25 € al giorno). Siamo riusciti a scaldarla quando ormai era il momento di andare via.
Non c'è il forno ma solo il microonde, è presenta la lavastoviglie senza detersivo e sale.
Il custode veramente disponibile in tutto.
è stato comunque un bel soggiorno che ci ha permesso anche di visitare Firenze con soli 30 minuti di macchina.
Very nice villa with enough room for a larger group. Castle amenities were a big plus - concierge services, good food at the restaurant.
Restaurant and concierge services at the castle were a big plus. Beautiful countryside setting.
Lovely setting, very comfortable and spacious. Very nice and helpful staff
Just far enough away from the crush of Florence to be peacefully bucolic but still convenient with a car. Very clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly and helpful with all of our needs!
