Fantastico !

  • 5 of 5

Melhor impossível ! Tudo perfeito. Desde a negociação inicial até a hora da despedida, sem problemas. Apartamento super limpo, vista maravilhosa, silêncio total. Realmente um lugar para relaxar a aproveitar a bela Toscana.Super fácil para visitar Siena, Florença, San Gimignano, Volterra, Colle di Val D'Elsa e a Rota do Chianti. Filippo e sua irmã são super atenciosos e prestativos.

Chegamos bem antes do horário programado e bastou uma mensagem e a irmã de Filippo chegou para nos recepcionar. Local extremamente agradável, inesquecível. Não deixe de ir ao La Laconda del Borgo, você não vai se arrepender. A comida é excelente e o atendimento impecável. Recomendo e pretendo voltar.

Back again to Francesca

  • 5 of 5

It is nearly eight years since I found this apartment on the internet. I booked a two week holiday in August and was so delighted by the experience that I have been back there every year since. Once again I was greeted by the owners , first by Francesca and a little later by her brother Filippo. It was like meeting up again with old friends. The whole holiday, however, was like this as I renewed acquintance with other people from the village that I had met over the years. They were welcoming on my first visit and are still as friendly today. The apartment was clean and sparkling and had everything one could require on a self-catering holiday, although with its situation near to beautiful villages and fantastic cities there is no need to cater for yourself at all. There are an abundance of restaurants within easy reach by car and maybe some in walking distance too. The food, and of course the wine, in the area can be fantastic. It is such a peaceful place to relax in, especially with a glass of wine on the terrace in the evening, but within half an hour you can be in Siena and an hour in Florence. A new addition this year was the wi-fi, so it was easy to keep in touch with people at home and to have access to the internet. 'Francesca' has become like a second home and my visits have covered all seasons, each one having its own fascination. It is great to stand on the terrace and look to the left and see the vineyards on the hill and to the right and see the olive groves. The owners are very helpful and always at the end of a telephone and ten minutes away. I would thoroughly recommend this property to a friend and look forward to returning there again.

Ein wunderbarer Ort der Erholung und Ruhe

Die Unterkunft entsprach ganz unseren Erwartungen. Sauber, groß, gemütlich, mit herrlichem Ausblick. Jeden Morgen Frühstück auf der Terrasse. Zeit anhalten und genießen. Herzliche Begrüßung durch die Familie und Filippo war jederzeit bei Fragen erreichbar, An-und Abreise wurden unkompliziert organisiert.

Une location en tout point conforme à l'annonce: tout est propre et confortable, aucun problème à signaler. Tout fonctionne parfaitement. Les pièces sont assez vastes, et ont une magnifique hauteur sous plafond.

La vue est sensationnelle, encore plus belle que sur les photos. Quel plaisir de profiter de la soirée sur la terrasse!

Les chambres sont bien séparées de part et d'autre du logement, ce qui offre une bonne intimité.

Nous sommes venus en famille, et nous nous sommes régalés! Nous espérons avoir la chance de revenir!

Entspannung pur in schöner Lage

  • 4 of 5

Die Wohnung liegt sehr ruhig in dem kleinen mittelalterlichen Weiler Montegabbro. Vom Patio kann man nach Ausflügen in die Umgebung (San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena und viele weitere sehenswerte Orte) entspannt die Nachmittagssonne genießen, die wir Ende Oktober noch ausreichend hatten. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis ist sehr gut. Die beiden Schlafzimmer sind großzügig geschnitten und in der Küche ist ausreichend Platz für 4 Personen. Die Vermieter (Filippo) reagieren sehr schnell auf Emails/SMS. Der Empfang vor Ort war sehr freundlich und man war um unser Wohl bemüht.
