We highly recommend this quality apartment!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in this lovely apartment for 1 month, and wished we had had longer. The apartment itself is spacious, light, and beautifully decorated. Attention to detail is everywhere, and everything one needs is provided. It was sparkling clean with good quality towels and linens. Note that you are provided with indoor, secure parking for your car a short walk from the apartment. The location provides an authentic medieval hill town experience. Calle di Valle d'Elsa is not much touristed so it is quiet, though it is interesting and has the shops and stores that are needed. It is perfectly located for visiting many interesting places and towns: Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, to name the big ones, and many, many smaller spots to discover. We enjoy walking, and the Francigena path criss-crosses all over this area, so we made many walks to small villages and little churches. Finally, Maura is a helpful and responsive host who went out of her way to make sure we knew of interesting places to visit, and was available for any question. We travel a lot, and have rented many similar apartments, and we highly recommend this one!

A real home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Maura's lovely apartment for nearly five weeks. Maura is very kind and helpful and has thought of everything to make the apartment comfortable and welcoming. She even provides free, secure, undercover parking (though for anyone with mobility issues, be warned, there's a climb up to the old town from the parking and you can only ever park outside the apartment itself with a permit that Maura organises and then only for a few minutes to unload luggage or groceries. This would be pretty standard though for any old hill town). Colle itself provides a great base for exploring Tuscany, being more or less right in the centre. It's also great because it's not as touristy as many other hill towns. We loved our stay there. Thank you again Maura.

  • 5 of 5

"From the fact that this was our second stay in the appartment you can see that we really like it. It is very clean and spacious for 2 or even 3 people. We were warmly welcomed by Maura and again enjoyed our stay in this nice town. (On the weekend there was some night-life in the bar/restaurant below; however, this will not deter us from returning again some time.)

Dies war bereits unser zweiter Aufenthalt in diesem Appartment, was zeigt, wie sehr es uns gefällt. Es ist sehr sauber und mit Stil eingerichtet. Die Vermieterin Maura war wieder sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Wir freuen uns schon auf den nächsten Besuch und lassen uns auch nicht davon abschrecken, dass am Wochenende von der Bar auf dem Platz vor dem Haus ein gewisser Geräuschpegel ausgehen kann."

"This apartment was the nicest place we have stayed during our stays in Italy. It was very clean, beautifully appointed and contained all that we required. It is very conveniently located to all the major centres which meant we were able to do and see so much during our stay. Maura is a delightful host and she provided us with lots of local infomation which we found very helpful. Thanks again, Maura. We will happily recommend Colle di Val d'Elsa and the appartment to our family and friends who are lucky enough to visit the area."

Stilvolle und komplett ausgestattete Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Die Lage und Ausstattung der Wohnung entsprach 120 % ig der Beschreibung.

Die Möblierung war stilvoll. In der Küche fanden wir nicht nur von Geschirr bis zu den Töpfen alles, was man auch zu Hause hat, es wurde sogar vorab für kalte Getränke gesorgt! In den Küchenschränken fanden wir Kaffee, Salz, Zucker, Essig und Öl.

Das Bad besaß außer den im Text beschriebenen Einrichtungen einen Abzug und im Schrank befanden sich von Dusch- und Körperhygieneartikeln bis zum Haarföhn alles, was man sonst nur in guten Hotels finden kann.

In einem großen Dielenschrank fanden wir vom Bügelbrett, Bügeleisen, Staubsauger, Besen etc. bis zu allen erdenklichen Reinigungsmitteln und Waschmitteln alles, was wir benötigten. Die kleine Waschmaschine im Bad arbeitete problemlos.

Selbstverständlich waren mehr als genug Handtücher und Bettwäsche kostenfrei vorhanden.

Für eine Endreinigung der Wohnung fielen ebenfalls keine Kosten an.

Alle Kleiderschränke der Wohnung waren sauber und in ausreichender Größe auch für einen längeren Aufenthalt vorhanden.

Im Wohn-Esszimmer befand sich eine große Schrankwand, in der sich überall wissenswerte Literatur in Buch- und Heftform über die Attraktionen der Stadt und der Umgebung befand.

Die Vermieterin hatte zusätzlich noch eine Aufstellung von Ausflugsrouten mit Besichtigungszielen der Umgebung angelegt.

Unser Mietauto konnten wir bei ihr in einer abgeschlossenen Sammelgarage sicher abstellen.

Die Wohnung ist für die Erkundung der Toskana ideal zwischen Sienna und Florenz gelegen.

Obwohl die Wohnung einmalig stilvoll oben in der alten Festung von Colle di Val d´Elsa liegt, gelangt man über einen öffentlichen Aufzug direkt bis in die "neue" Stadt mit dem ca. 700 m entfernten Einkaufszentrum, das wirklich sehr gut an Lebensmitteln bestückt ist.

Für Rollstuhlfahrer ist sie, wegen der Lage im ersten Stock, nicht geeignet.

Diese Wohnung werden wir, auch wegen der perfekten Organisation durch unsere Vermieterin, auf jeden Fall unseren Freunden und Verwandten weiter empfehlen. Danke Maura
