After a late arrival and a few wrong turns we had a fantastic stay in Paola 2. The setting is lovely and peaceful. Very comfortable accommodation and beautiful swimming pool. The owners were very welcoming leaving pastries one morning & home grown tomatoes another. To top our holiday all the guests were invited to an evening of freshly made pizzas and a wine. A very special touch to end a lovely stay.
Great location very nice property and the owners are very helpfull
Accueil des propriétaires chaleureux. Ils ont été très attentifs à nos demandes tout au long du séjour qui réserve de nombreuses attentions délicates de leur part. Gîte spacieux et confortable, au calme et avec une vue imprenable sur la vallée. Belle et grande piscine très propre (nettoyée quotidiennement) entourée par de nombreux transats et parasols. Bravo à Paolo et Sandra pour leur gentillesse et leur accueil.
Les chiens sont bien accueillis. Bon rapport qualité/prix.
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] Warmly welcomed by the owners. They were very attentive to our needs throughout our stay. We got many delicate attentions from them. Spacious and comfortable lodging, quiet and with a breathtaking view over the valley. Large and very clean swimming pool (daily cleaned!) surrounded by several sun loungers and parasols. Congratulations to Paolo and Sandra for their kindness and hospitality.
Dogs are welcome. Good quality/price ratio.
My wife and I have stayed here (travelling from Australia) and had a magnificent stay. The property is only 40 minutes from Florence and is set on a hillside farm above the village of Dicomano. The accomodation is very high quality with all of the conveniences you'll need including the huge swimming offering spectacular views.
From this location you can make day easy day trips to the major tourist destinations e.g. Sienna and Chianti. The hosts are the most friendly people, surprising us on a couple of occasions with pastries from the local bakery and wood fired pizza.
