We stayed at ANTICO FIENILE for 2 weeks and enjoyed it for several reasons:
1. The house and the apartment are simply beautiful, craftsmanship at its best!
2. It was terribly hot this July (37 to 40 degrees Celsius), so we only survived because of the cooling system in the living room and the bedroom ;-) it worked perfectly!
3.) The landlords were so incredibly helpful and friendly, communication worked fine although we hardly speak any Italian and they speak little English.
4.) It's a fine place for golfers: 4 minutes to walk (!) to MONTECATINI GOLF.
5.) It took us an hour drive (in any case) to all the places we wanted to see : Pisa, Siena, Volterra, San Giminiano, Firenze, ... so the house is kind of centrally located :-)
6.) The house is at a hill, quietly situated within olive groves ... we loved the peace!
7.) Thank you, Marco and Paolo, for beeing so helpful and friendly! :-)
