Paradise in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We are always sceptical when renting a home as I think most people are, is it as described, are the pictures deceiving, well I can say with confidence that this home was above and beyond our expectations! We booked months in advance and the communication from the owner Marco was absolutely fantastic, upon arrival we were met by the Housekeeper and her family who took the time to show us absolutely everything we needed to know about the villa. The property is absolutely beautiful and no detail was missed we had everything needed to enjoy a very peaceful and relaxing vacation. Just everything about this villa, the location, the amenities, is just perfect, we will be back and I would not hesitate to recommend Marco's home to friends and family. Experience this Tuscan Gem for yourself!

Authentique Maison Toscane dans un lieu enchanteur

  • 5 of 5

Nous venons de passer deux semaines en famille dans cette villa où tout contribue à la détente et au repos. La maison est fonctionnelle, elle dispose d'un équipement très complet et est décorée avec raffinement.

L'extèrieur de la maison présente de nombreuses " bulles" de détente invitant au repos et à la dilettante

L'hospitalité , le caractère attentionné de nos hôtes Marco et Adèle et la réactivité, dont ils ont fait preuve pour répondre à nos demandes ont largement contribué à la qualité de nos vacances. Je ne saurai terminé cette appréciation sans évoquer la beauté de la campagne environnante, composée d'oliviers centenaires et d'essences méditerranéennes.

En conclusion, nous avons passé d'excellentes vacances à Pelago et recommandons vivement cette villa.

Wonderful, quiet and elegant location to spend restful days

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to describe how relaxed you can feel here - it is a marvelous house surrounded by olive trees, interior and exterior are very tasteful decorated. Everything is top clean and in best working order. Whether you prefer to rest and read a good book in the shade or to visit Florence (some 20 km away) or maybe have a long walk int he hills surrounding Pelago, you can do it. Probably the best place and way to spend time in Tuscany.

Ein Traumhaus

  • 5 of 5

Tolles Ferienhaus mit klasse Blick Richtung Pelago und erstklassiger Ausstattung, tollem Pool und einem riesigen gepflegten Grundstück. Habe noch nie ein Ferienhaus mit vergleichbarer Ausstattung (iPod, Nespresso Maschine, Stabmixer, Mückenbekämpfer....). Man merkt, dass die Vermieter das Haus auch selbst nutzen.

Das Haus ist eine absolute Empfehlung.

Bitte Mückenrepellent einpacken und ein Moskitonetz - die Kids werden sonst doch sehr von den Mücken ausgesaugt (da kann aber das Haus nichts für und ist halt recht typisch in dieser Jahreszeit).

5 Sterne sind absolut verdient.

Traumlage

  • 5 of 5

Die Bilder können gar nicht wiedergeben, wie schön sich das Haus in die toskanischen Berge schmiegt. Aber nicht nur die Lage ist bemerkenswert, sondern auch die Ausstattung und der Zustand des Hauses und der Anlage. Alles ist vorhanden, was man zum Kochen und zum schönen Leben benötigt. Der Pool krönt das Anwesen noch. Unsere Kinder waren teilweise noch vor dem Frühstück in den Fluten. Sie haben den Aufenthalt genossen.

Marco und seine Frau sind äußerst unkomplizierte und nette Vermieter. Es gab ein kleines Präsent zu beginn mit Öl aus eigener Herstellung, Wein und Nudeln. Es war alles perfekt.

Einzig kleiner Wehmutstropfen waren die vielen Mücken. Hier hat Marco zwar schon ein Spezialgerät zum Fang der Mücken aufgestellt. Aber das süße Blut unserer Kinder, war nachts doch eine zu große Herausforderung. Wenn man sich darauf einstellt und vorsorgt, ist das alles aber kein Problem.

Danke Marco für die schönen Zeit auf Deinem Anwesen.
