Perfekt zum Entspannen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben hier zwei wunderschöne Wochen verbracht. Bei unserer Ankunft wurden wir herzlich von unserer Vermieterin Donatella empfangen - sie hatte uns im Vorfeld mit allen nötigen Informationen versorgt. Die Wohnung ist mit allem ausgestattet was man braucht. Der Garten und die Aussicht sind einfach traumhaft. Für Ruhesuchende genau das Richtige.

Absolute Entspannung in wunderschöner Lage

  • 5 of 5

Absolut empfehlenswert: Das Studio ist gemütlich und sauber. Das Haus liegt ruhig an einem Berg mit wundervoller Aussicht, ein kleiner Garten lädt zum Entspannen und Frühstücken ein. Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen und hatten alle nötigen Informationen schon vorab bekommen. Perfekt!

Von Montigiano aus kann man viele Orte in der Umgebung und auch das Meer schnell erreichen. Das Dorf selbst ist winzig, hier findet man absolute Ruhe und Entspannung. Toll!

Great place for a peaceful and relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent in Donatella's wonderful apartment a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

La Tinaia has a wonderful terrace and a beautiful little garden with lots of herbs which makes this place a really typically Toscana place. The originally rebuild house and apartment is as well typically furnished and it was very clean.

Therefore we have had a very relaxing holiday in the early summer.

We would be glad to stay sometime again in this wonderful place.
