We spent a wonderful holiday in a very nice location
Very nice location and incredibly nice people. It is a proper vineyard with wine fields all around.
The apartment itself, at least the one we had, was pretty basic but spacious. It was unfortunate that our apartment did not have a balcony or terrace (most of the others apartments) did have one.
Overall we we much enjoyed our stay there.
joli site, au calme en pleine campagne; cuisine bien équipée, logement spacieux, décoration "rétro", la salle de bain notamment aurait besoin d'être modernisée..
This apartment was spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped. We enjoyed it immensely - but much of the enjoyment was its location, on the grounds of a working winery. The views are breathtaking. The only difficulty is the access road, but once you've traversed it, it becomes much less daunting. We were in and out of the property every day, and access became a non-issue. Proximity to San Gimignano made things very easy (there's a supermarket there, along with some very good restaurants) and access to other tourist attractions was great. The hosts, Andrea and Claudia, and David, our wine expert, made us feel welcome. We would return for another visit in a heartbeat.
Wir (Familie) haben einen wunderschönen Urlaub auf Il Piano verbracht. Die Wohnung ist einfach, aber sehr zweckmäßig eingerichtet. Alles was man braucht ist da. Angefangen von einer voll eingerichteten Küche über das Geschirr, die Töpfe, Pfannen, Besteck usw. Das Bad könnte eine Renovierung gebrauchen. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett, die Betreuung supergut.
Man sollte tolerant gegenüber Hunden sein. Der Hofhund (mittelgroßer Hund) knurrt und bellt Gäste an.
Das Schönste an Il Piano ist die unberührte Lage mitten in Reben und Olivenhainen. Man genießt die Ruhe und die Aussicht auf die Hügel und auf San Gimignano.
Jederzeit wieder !!!
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] We (a family) have spent a wonderful holiday at Il Piano. The apartment is simple but very functional. Everything you need is there. Starting with a fully equipped kitchen on to dishes, pots, pans, cutlery etc. The bathroom could need renovation. The owners are very nice, the service super good.
One should be tolerant towards dogs. The farm dog (medium sized dog) growls and barks at guests.
The best thing about Il Piano is its unspoilt location in the middle of vineyards and olive groves. You can enjoy the peace and the quietness and the views over the hills and San Gimignano. Every time again !!!
