                                                                  Only negative point is the road that leads to the house, especially the first part is desastrous."

                                                                  Anne-Michèle T.

                                                                  Vacances en septembre au coeur des vendanges. Nous avons particulièrement apprécié le hameau isolé et très soigné . La maison procure un confort moyen mais adéquat pour des vacances en pleine nature. La route principale est à deux km mais le chemin difficile à certains endroits ( surtout à l'arrivée) donne une impression d'isolement et de liberté. Paola est souriante et attentive lors de ses visites. Si vous aimez marcher, l'endroit est idéal. La situation géographique permet de belles découvertes tant culturelles que gastronomiques....

                                                                  An interesting road, simply a nightmare

                                                                  Manuela M.

                                                                  The 2km of "unmade" road to the apartments Il Navico is very steep in places, uneven, and for the most part is made by gravel. At a few points, especially near "Mulino Nuovo", there are several hard ridges and our car bottomed-out, in both directions.

                                                                  Having attempted to leave the car parked at Mulino Nuovo (which seemed to attract frowns from the B&B), and instead walk up to Il Navico, we found the 35-40 mins required was just too much, especially with the large number of flies which descend upon you near the river.

                                                                  After 2 nights at the apartment (which is very nice, quiet, well equipped and with great views) of trying to make a go of it, we contacted the owner asking to cut-short our stay, as access to the car is essential in this location, and we simply could not safely traverse the very tricky access road with our city car.

                                                                  The owner offered no compromise on our original 1 week booking, and insisted on withholding the full amount which had been paid in advance, in good faith, and at their insistence, in cash.

                                                                  They helped bring our belongings down to the main road, but refused to accept that our car had an issue, and insisted it was our fault.

                                                                  The fact is that the access road IS difficult, perhaps even dangerous in places, and our car was not up to it. There was no advance warning of this when booking, and after the initial "experience" of traversing the road, and then a second attempt, we reluctantly decided to abandon our stay.

                                                                  We spent the remainder of our 2 week tour of Tuscany in a number of other Agriturismo's & B+B's; everywhere else we went was flexible on dates and accepted payment upon leaving. We had no other issues with any other roads in Tuscany for the remainder of our holiday.

                                                                  So, thanks to the rest of Tuscany for restoring our faith, but NO thanks to the owner of this apartment, who was ultimately ungracious and mean-spirited when we hit an intractable problem (no pun intended).

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Cara Manuela, spero che coloro che vorranno soggiornare in futuro presso il Navico abbiano la pazienza di leggere le recensioni a 4 e 5 stelle che precedono la Sua e capiscano che io non posso farmi carico dei problemi personali di chi viaggia con un mezzo deteriorato. Che due km di sterrato precedono l'abitazione è indicato nella descrizione pubblicata sul sito, ma le recensioni ricevute fino ad adesso, in 18 anni di attività , non solo tramite Homelidays, dimostrano quanto questo particolare, da tutti menzionato , sia poi irrilevante. In tutti questi anni sono arrivati ospiti da ogni parte del mondo, con macchine vecchie o nuove, sia alte che basse, sia sportive che fuoristrada....Praticamente di tutto. L'unico requisito richiesto e, mi scusi, dato per scontato, è che siano auto funzionanti.

                                                                  Ma muoversi con un'auto deteriorata, già carica di bombole per un impianto a gas e di valige, oltre che di tutto l'occorrente per trascorrere una seconda settimana in campeggio (tenda compresa), lo ritengo poco responsabile. Lei stessa ha potuto constatare al Suo arrivo , un parcheggio pieno di macchine di ogni tipo e genere, che sono arrivate e se ne sono andate non certo volando!

                                                                  Sicuramente non posso farmi carico delle conseguenze di una partenza così arrangiata e precaria. Nessun ospite ha mai lasciato la nostra casa prima della fine del soggiorno e molti di loro hanno soggiornato qui più volte

                                                                  nel corso degli anni.

                                                                  Le auguro una buona serata e le consiglio per i suoi futuri viaggi una macchina a noleggio.

                                                                  Relax in Chianti
