A bit misleading
We booked this property for our 3 generation family summer holiday.
We knew there were three properties on site but as we thought we were booking the entire place we assumed we’d have all three properties between the 15 of us.
About 3 weeks before the start of the holiday our daughter discovered that the same property was advertised for groups of up to 30!
We contacted Loris who confirmed that we would have half of the main house and would be sharing the pool.
Too late to cancel so we decided to make the best of it.
There are actually five properties on site plus Loris’s house. We had the 4 bedroom farmhouse and a one bedroom annexe (not accessible from the house) which had two beds in the kitchen!
Plenty of bathrooms almost one per room.
Only one actual double bed, in a room so small we couldn’t walk round it, had to shuffle.
Outside terrace for eating was great, fantastic views.
Inside communal space was too small for 15 of us. Only one sofa! Luckily we had some camping chairs so brought them in.
TV was tiny and not set up (it was perched on the wood burner) so we didn’t use it. If the room had been more comfortable we would have used the tv on rainy afternoons - lots of those!
Kitchen was tight on space for preparing meals for 15, not the best equipped either. Lots of crockery and cutlery though. Kept banging into cupboard door which refused to stay closed ! Toaster didn’t work.
House felt generally run down! Not enough towels provided, luckily we had lots of swimming towels with us.
Share the washing machine with the owner so felt a bit uncomfortable about using it, but with lots of children we had no choice.
The first day when all we wanted to do was relax around the pool after 2 days of driving, we were joined by 2 Italian women who I don’t think were staying there, then a group of about 8 to 10 teenagers who certainly weren’t staying there! Friends of Loris maybe? Not ideal!
Luckily for us the other family who were staying there hardly used the pool and were out all the time, if they had been using the pool at the same time as us it would have been crowded!
Loris did seem very pleasant, but we definitely prefer to have the place entirely to ourselves and if we’d known there would be so many people coming and going we would not have booked.
As for the area, it is beautiful. But, there’s not a great deal to do in the local area and it takes a long time to drive anywhere on the mountain roads.One week is enough.
Ottima location ,silenziosa con panorama impareggiabile forse anche per il bel tempo che abbiamo avuto.Il signor Barbieri ci ha fornito tutte le notizie utili per sfruttare al meglio il nostro soggiorno.Consigliabile per tutte le eta'
Bilder täuschen ziemlich
Abgewohntes Ferienhaus, Zimmer und Küchengeräte teils sehr defekt und in die Jahre gekommen.
Das Gelände, Waschmaschine und Pool muss sich noch mit mehreren anderen Familien teilen und der Vermieter ist mit der Benutzung der Geräte und dem Pool dabei.
Wenn man auf einen entspannten Urlaub hofft sollte das Anwesen meiden.
Et hus der er perfekt 2 famillier med mange børn.
Vi var 2 familier på ialt 10 personer i en uge og der var rigeligt med plads. Huset var hyggeligt og praktisk indrettet og vi kunne alle samles i stuen, på terrassen, i haven eller ved svømmepølen. Værten Loris opholder sig i et selvstændigt hus på grunden og går dagligt og plejer alle blomsterne i haven og lave praktisk ting uden dog at forstyrer på nogen måde. Huset var lidt slidt og et par ting virkede ikke, men Loris var altid i nærheden og kunne hjælpe med både instruktion og eventuel hurtig reparation. Vi har både cyklet, gået og kørt i bil i området, som er smukt og med et vidt forgrennet vejnet af små stille veje med fantastiske landskaber, nydelige huse og charmerende italienske byer. Loris tog sig tid til at lytte på hvad vi ville og udfra dette anbefale os hvad der ville være interessant for os i området. Vi har nydt opholdet hos Loris og vi vender tilbage en anden gang.
persone corrette e gentili
Posto ideale per famiglie
Abbiamo trascorso un fine settimana in questo bellissimo posto per sciare nelle vicinanze. Eravamo in quattro famiglie e visto che i bambini volevano stare tutti insieme la sistemazione con le quattro camere é stata perfetta. La casa era tutta per noi, abbiamo fatto anche la brace fuori. Un posto bellissimo da visitare anche nel periodo estivo per sfruttare la piscina.
