We had a wonderful holiday at Le Rondini in July 2014. The property is a classic rustic villa with a great pool and well maintained grounds. It comfortably accommodated our group of 17 in clean and tidy bedrooms, and with more than enough bathrooms to go round. The kitchen was well set up to cater for a large group and the upstairs open balcony was an excellent spot for lunch on a hot afternoon. The owner was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The location is fantastic, close to the beautiful town of Lucignano and in the middle of beautiful Tuscan countryside - but only 5 mins from a supermarket and outlet shopping at Valdichiana. We would love to return to Le Rondini and would happily recommend it to friends and family.
Property is clearly due for a major! renovation. Blinds are broken, fridge is terribly old, interior is dark and smelly. Many items in the rooms are broken and not maintained. We felt we were out camping... Location is beautiful, owner doesn't speak English but friendly.
[counter comment from the house managers - English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] We spoke with the owner. He told us he has already replaced the fridge and will change the broken items in the house.
As for the lighting, the house is bound by the Ministry of Cultural Heritage and therefore it's not possible to do mayor restorations but we asked the owner to add lamps or enhance the existing ones.
Das Haus ist schön. Der Vermieter/Verwalter war aber ausgesprochen unhöflich und hat unter anderem Personenkontrollen nachts um 22.30 durchgeführt. Das Misstrauen, welches uns entgegen gebracht wurde, war absolut unerträglich. Der Vermieter muss sein Verhalten unbedingt überdenken. Wenn er ein Problem damit hat, dass junge Menschen das Haus mieten, soll er dies doch im Vornherein klar stellen - man hätte sich dann anderweitig umsehen können.
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] The house is beautiful. The owner / manager was extremely rude and, among others, has conducted checks on persons at 22.30 in the evening. This distrust against us was absolutely unbearable. The landlord must rethink his behavior necessarily. If he has a problem with the fact that young people rent the house, he should make it clear in the outset - we would have booked elsewhere.
Le rondini kann man auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Tolle große Küche, genügend Kühlschränke und ein super gepflegter Pool.
Das Anwesen ist sehr groß und sehr gepflegt.
[English translation courtesy of Easy Reserve] We can definitely recommend Le Rondini. Great big kitchen, plenty of refrigerators and a super well-kept pool. The property is very large and very well maintained.
