Lovely house with great pool

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a lovely holiday in Toscane. After a nice mail-contact with owner Kenneth, we were kindly welcomed by Carlo, who speaks (in my Dutch ears) perfectly English! The house was spaciously, clean and fully equipped. There was a review about the children's room being small, but my two teenaged kids had no problem with it. They found him large enough.

The wi-fi was great, especially appreciated by my son and husband! My daughter though, was very happy with the large, clean pool. Maybe there could be more sun beds and some could be replaced, but that was the only tiny minus.

The residence is nicely located and give a save feeling due to the electric gate. The surroundings are lovely and the place is very central, you can visit al the nice towns within the hour.

In short, I certainly can recommend this place!!

Perfect for relaxation, nature and culture...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two and a half weeks and it was one of the best holidays we have ever had. As a couple looking to relax and recover from the stress of modern day life, we found this to be a perfect location.

Located in the middle of the Tuscan hills, surrounded by vineyards, beautiful little villages, castles, churches, lakes.....it is exactly what you imagine when you think of holidaying in Tuscany.

For peace and quiet the appartment is perfectly located with the only noise pollution provided by the crickets at night. Reading by the pool or sipping Negronis on the terrace gazing out at the surrounding hills....awesome! Facilites were also spot on. A large lounge and well equiped kitchen area with terrace which, as cooking enthusiasts, was very important to us (and barbeque). Two large bedrooms and two spacious bathrooms.

I am a keen mountainbiker and the immediate area provides scenic trails taking you through local villages, settlements, vineyards and past lakes...and all outside the front door.

Ambra is within easy walking distance and has enough shops, bars and restaurants to keep you satisfied for a couple of weeks. Corte di Bacco is one of the best restaurants ever.

Supermarket 5 minutes drive in Bucine.

For a bit of culture and adventure Siena, Florence, Arezzo are within 30 minutes drive. Montepulciano less than an hour away.

As the apartment complex is self contained and very secure, I'm thinking of going back with the kids next time.

nice!

  • 5 of 5

A nice, clean spacious and well-isolated apartment in the heart of Tuscany. Large swimming pool. The house keeper (Angela) was very friendly and helpfull. So was the owner Kenneth ! It was a very lovely place : lots of room and well equiped on the inside and outside. Large fridge ( !!!) . It's well located between Siena and Arezzo and the vineyards and also not far away. One minor detail : there were not enough sun beds at the pool but the owner has 2 more extra sun beds in the house ( good of you Kenneth!).Lots of good restaurants within a range of 5 kilometers.

this residence is one of the best we've been to !

In one word : nnnniiiiicccceeee

Owner's Response: Dear Anita and Frank. Thank you sooooo much for these kind words! I am glad that you enjoyed your stay and Sandra and me look forward to hosting you once again. I am sorry that there were not enough sun-beds by the pool but it is good to note that now the condominium management has just bought extra beds for the pool so this issue is sorted as well. Thanks again! Sandra and Kenneth

Tolle Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten einen sehr schönen Urlaub in der Ferienwohnung der Vepri Residenz. Die Wohnung entsprach genau dem Inserat. Sie liegt im Erdgeschoss und ist angenehm und funktionell eingerichtet und nicht abgenutzt. Das Kinderzimmer ist recht klein, was uns aber nicht gestört hat. Die Küche verfügt über alle notwendigen Gerätschaften. Der Kühlschrank ist sehr geräumig, das Eisfach verfügt über ein etwas größeres Fach. Waschmaschine, Bügeleisen, Fön, W-LAN – alles da. Der Pool hat eine gute Größe, so dass man ein paar Bahnen ziehen oder etwas tauchen kann. Überfüllt war es dort nie, manchmal waren wir sogar allein dort. Die Straße hinter der Residenz kann man sehr gut als Joggingstrecke nutzen. Die Wohnung liegt günstig für zahlreiche Ausflüge zu den toskanischen Sehenswürdigkeiten oder in die toskanischen Städte. Siena und Arezzo ca. 30 min, Florenz und Montepulciano unter einer Stunde. Während unseres Urlaubes war es in der Anlage sehr ruhig, so dass man nachts gut schlafen konnte. Insgesamt haben wir uns gut erholt und uns wohl gefühlt. Vielen Dank an die Vermieter!

Our Holiday August 2011

  • 5 of 5

The description and photos don't really do this holiday venue enough justice - the views from the apartment terrace were really lovely and the house was beautifully clean and modern. Usually on holiday, we eat out a lot, but because the kitchen was so well equipped and the views so excellent, it was a real pleasure preparing and then enjoying a family evening meal watching the sunset.

The property owner, provided excellent service, he telephoned and also texted us to ensure everything was OK - it was nice to know that had there been any problems, then there is someone approachable to assist.

During our stay, there were only a few other families also staying in the other apartments, so it was very peaceful and relaxing and also mean't we often had the pool to ourselves which my teenagers loved!

We visited Florence which we enjoyed and is easily reachable by train from the nearby village of Bucine and took about an hour (do check the train timetable on bank holidays though as we didn't and found that not all the trains stopped at Bucine!). There is a nice, friendly bar in the next village which is walkable (Amara).

Arezzo is also within easy reach by car and well worth a visit as is the lake at Castiglione del Lago

I would definitely recommend this property as it is well placed for visiting surrounding towns and cities while also being a lovely place to relax and enjoy some peace in the beautiful countryside.
