Outstanding Stay in the Tuscany Region!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had the opportunity to stay at the Fontesettimena farmhouse and it was the best part of our trip to Italy. We're from Montana, USA, and enjoyed the quiet and peaceful surroundings. The location is excellent for exploring numerous small towns (Volterra and San Gimignano) that are within 30 mins drive. The apartment was comfortable and perfect for two.

Sandra and Fabrizio are wonderful hosts and were able to direct us to a couple local restaurants that were very good. We had full access to their property for numerous morning and evening walks and enjoyed the green hills covered in forests, wheat fields, olive trees and wildflowers.

We would certainly recommend the farm to everyone and plan on returning sometime in the future.

Fantastisch, sehr Empfehlenswert / Maravilloso

  • 5 of 5

Wir möchten Sandra, Fabrizio und Famiie recht herzlich für die nette Gastfreundschaft danken!! Wir hatten zwei wunderschöne Wochen mit Ihnen verbracht, vor allem war es sehr nett den Ferragosto mit Ihnen zu feiern. Fabrizio hat uns auch seine Bienenzucht gezeigt und erklärt wie der Honig hergestellt wird. Wir werden auch unsere Abendspaziergänge mit dem Hofhund "Leo" vermissen, Leo hat uns immer begleitet und auf uns aufgepasst ;-)

Das Apartment hat uns sehr gefallen, es war alles sehr sauber und schön hergerichtet.

Sandra hat uns immer sehr gute Tips gegeben um Gegend und Ortschaften der Umgebung zu besichtigen.

Fontesettimena ist sehr empfehlenswert.

wir kommen sicher wieder,DANKE!!

Gran lugar y grandes personas!!!!

Tanto el lugar como las instalaciones son tal como indica la descripción del anuncio. Un remanso de paz y tranquilidad en plena naturaleza y una familia maravillosa donde Sandra te da todo tipo de explicaciones sobre posibles actividades y visitas de los alrededores en la Toscana. Fabrizio también, si quieres te introduce en el interesante mundo de las abejas y la producción de miel que ellos elaboran, al igual que su hijo que que trabaja maravillosamente el albastro.

Y qué decir de "Leo", el perro de la familia que es un encanto y fiel acompañante en los paseos al atardecer alrededor de la finca.

En fin, más que recomendable, para quien busca tranquilidad y disfrutar de la Toscana.

Owner's Response: in circa 12 anni che mi occupo di Agriturismo ho avuto la fortuna di conoscere tantissime persone provenienti da tutto il mondo ..e credetemi credo di essere fortunata per questo. questi incontri casuali mi danno la possibilità di conoscere persone stupende , che dopo pochi giorni trascorsi insieme si instaura tra di noi un bel rapporto di amicizia e stima , ecco questo è quanto è successo con questa famiglia Spagnola -Austriaca , grazie ancora a nome di tutta la mia famiglia e del mio Leo . Sandra

Schöner, erholsamer Aufenthalt

  • 4 of 5

Wir waren dort um das Teatro del Silenzio Konzert von Andrea Bocelli zu besuchen.

Ideale Lage für Ausflüge nach Volterra, San Gimigniano und Siena.

Haus ist perfekt sauber und mit allen notwendigen Küchenutensilien ausgestattet.

Gastgeber sind sehr freundlich und herzlich.

Der Schotterweg von der Hauptstrasse zum Haus zeiht sich etwas, alles in allem ein wunderschöner Aufenthalt in den Hügeln der Toskana.

Wer Ruhe nach mehrstündigen Besichtigungen der Umgebung sucht ist hier perfekt aufgehoben.

Urlaubsparadies

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten zwei herrliche Wochen in Fontesettimena verbracht. Besonders die Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit hat uns sehr gefallen. Die Wohnung ist nett eingerichtet und in einem tadellosen Zustand. Ganz herzlich bedanken wir uns bei Sandra und ihrer Familie, die uns den Aufenthalt so angenehm gemacht haben. Auch Hofhund Leo, der uns treu Gesellschaft geleistet hat werden wir vermissen.
