Ferien in Santa Luce

  • 3 of 5

Wir waren als Familie mit zwei Kleinkindern zufrieden mit unserem Urlaub in dieser Anlage. Was uns allerdings enttäuscht hat, war die Richtigkeit in Bezug auf die Wohnungsbeschreibung, denn mit 5 Personen kann man sich dort nicht gut aufhalten! Wir hatten für ein Wochenende Besuch von einem Paar, das allerdings wegen der "Kleine" des Appartments in einem anderen auf dem Grundstück liegenden Appartment unterkommen musste. Als wir Herrn Manzoni diesbezüglich informierten, dass wir Besuch bekämen, fragte er gleich, ob wir ein anderes Appartement mieten wollten, da unseres für so viele Leute zu klein sei. Die Ausstattung war eher bescheiden, so gab es z.B. keine Salatbestecke, (ohne die man natürlich auch zwei Wochen auskommen kann, aber bei dem Mietpreis doch erwartet werden können). Sehr gut ist der freie Zugang zur Waschmaschine. Abgesehen von den genannten "Mängeln" haben wir uns dort aber sehr wohl gefühlt.

Wunderschoenes Toskana Ferienhaus

  • 5 of 5

Das Objekt verfuegt ueber wunderschoene sehr gepflegte Aussenanlagen, die es mit jedem 5 Sterne Resort aufnehmen koennen: grosser Eternity Pool mit Blick auf die Insel Elba, Kinder-Spielplatz mit allem was dazu gehoert, BBQ Bereiche, Aussenterassen, Original Stein-Pizzaofen, Parkanlagen etc.

Ausserdem verfuegt das grosse Grundstueck ueber weite Gruenanlagen, Olivenhaine und Weingaerten. Die Innenbereiche sind toskanisch urisch eingerichtet. Der Vermieter selbst spricht zwar kein Deutsch/Englisch, ist aber sehr freundlich und zuvorkommend - bspw Empfangs-Spaghetti. Die Lage ist noch etwas ausserhalb von Santa Luce und die Anfahrtsstrasse definitiv nicht fuer tiefergelegte Fahrzeuge geeignet - jedoch entschaedigt das Objekt mit unvergleichlichen Ausblicken und sehr viel Ruhe.

Balsam für die Seele

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage der Ferienwohnung ist traumhaft! Wir konnten das Meer sehen, Livorno, Pisa (insbesondere bei Nacht), Olivenbäume und Wald. Die Landschaft ist so lieblich, so friedlich, einfach idyllisch.

Der Vermieter war jederzeit ansprechbar, sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Die Wohnung ist einfach und zweckmäßig ausgestattet, sehr sauber.

Wir würden useren Urlaub wieder dort verbringen und können dieses Domizil, besonders an Familien mit Kindern empfehlen..
