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.

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.

Un havre de sérénité dans un décor dont la Toscane à le secret.

  • 5 of 5

L'accueil des propriétaires, la situation de la propriété, le charme de la région, tout concoure à passer un séjour agréable dans cette partie de la Toscane.

Volterra, Pise, Siene, San Giminiano et autres cités des environs sont autant de lieux où l'on aime flâner, découvrir ou re-découvrir l'architecture du passé, apprécier les produits locaux et la gentillesse italienne des commerçants.

Location confortable, située sur un piton rocheux qui bénéficie d'une très belle vue, l'accueil et le sérieux des propriétaires, nous ont permis de passer un très agréable séjour.
