|Minimum Stay||3 - 7 nights|
Tuscan hills, the farmhouse is surrounded by hectares of woods with typical Mediterranean plants that extend inside the property offering the possibility of lovely walks. Recently renovated maintains the charm of the old farmhouse while being equipped with all the necessary comforts. Ideally placed to reach the wonderful art cities of Tuscany with scenic roads.
Georgio and Isabella are very nice and will go out of their way to be helpful. Isabella provided us a great deal of information in her welcome. The flat is in a very nice setting and quiet. Georgio and his cousin were harvesting olives when we arrived. It rained most of the time we were there so we did not see as much as we wanted. We did take the train to Pisa, it was very easy and comfortable. Finding dinner the first night was a little difficult as we were tired from a long drive and restaurants did not open until 19:30 if at all on that Monday. We ended up shopping at COOP and making it ourselves.
There is a COOP grocery nearby but there is also a nice market just inside of town. There is a farmers market on Thursday. There a truck there that sells great food. We got roasted chicken and potatoes that were as good as home made.
I did not realize the Georgio did not live on the property. The neighbors that occupied the Rose apartment were loud well into the evening. Mostly their children.
The kitchen is of adequate size but has only one dish towel, it is missing some lids for some pots, and a dish rack. I am sure if I had asked Georgio he would have provided them.
The bedrooms are of good size. The duvets are missing their covers. The second bedroom did not have sheets and blankets. Perhaps she thought we did not need the bedroom.
The washing machine needs to have a cleaning solution run through it as it has an odd odor and residue from the oil based detergents used.
I don't have a good suggestion for the living room. The TV faces away from the couch. Perhaps use chairs instead of a couch.
The Windows let in bugs, even with the screens.
The unit she gave us is not the one from the pictures. The villa gave me an apartment building feel. It is well thought out and the owners are very nice people.
Todo muy limpio. Camas cómodas y los propietarios se portaron genial. Isabella y Georgio son de una amabilidad excepcional.
