3 Wochen Villa Serrantica

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist in einer einzigartigen Lage. Die Aussicht ist traumhaft, das Grundstück riesig, das Haus ohne direkte Nachbarn. Ein Kieswerk (Gipsabbau?) befindet sich in der Nähe - diese "Geräusche" nimmt man für diese Immobilie aber gerne in Kauf.

Das Haus ist groß und verfügt über eine gute Aufteilung: EG mit großer, gut ausgestatteter Wohnküche, kleines Wohnzimmer, größeres Wohnzimmer, Badezimmer, im OG 3 Schlafzimmer und 2 Badezimmer, alles sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet. 2 der Schlafzimmer haben eine wunderschöne Meersicht. Die Küche verfügt über sämtliche Küchengeräte (mehr als ich von zu Hause gewohnt bin)

Unsere 4 Hunde durften uns begleiten, sie fanden genug Platz in der Wohnküche, das restliche Haus hielten wir wie besprochen Hundefrei - sie konnten sich auf dem riesigen Grundstück austoben und so haben wir alle einen wunderbaren Urlaub verbracht.

Wir verbringen jeden Herbst Urlaub in der Toskana und wir haben nur gute Erfahrungen gemacht, aber dieses Haus war bis jetzt das schönste. Ich kann jedem empfehlen, den Urlaub in der Villa Serrantica zu verbringen.

De belles vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes un couple avec 2 bébés et avons passé une superbe semaine dans cette villa.

Les lieux sont bien plus beaux que les photos de présentation.

Il y a tout pour passer une superbe semaine : ustensiles de cuisine, barbecue, beaux espaces pour le repas, du soleil, de l'ombre, la piscine (un peu froide : une bâche pour la nuit serait bienvenue pour garder la température :-) ), les salons pour se détendre, les grands espaces, l'isolement complet et la liberté de faire ce que l'on veut (chanter, danser, s'amuser,...)

Formidable villa, Stefania est à 1 minute de la villa si besoin ! Le jardin et la piscine sont entretenus pendant le séjour !

Il faut se batailler avec le wifi mais l'essentiel n'est pas là, et finalement on est bien content d'avoir le minimum d'Internet ce qui permet de se concentrer sur la vue!

Bref vous l'aurez compris... Foncez-y ! Le proprio est très sympathique et rempli d'humour !

  • 5 of 5

We spent 9 weeks at the Villa Serrantica, from mid-April to mid-June, and fell in love with both the house and the area.

Highlights:

- A great house, larger and better that the pictures show. Well equipped and comfortable - this is not an average vacation house, but a real home.

- A huge property, completely private, surrounded by olive trees and flowery meadows.

- Fantastic view of the Tuscan hills and Mediterranean

- A large garden, very children friendly (our 1 and 3 year old kids could run free without much supervision)

- A glass of wine by the stone table under the fig tree during sunset is plain magic

- Castellina Marittima is an authentic, non-touristy little village that really grows on you.

- The location is great for a variety of activites. Close to the sea and nice, sandy beaches (or cliffs if you like that), close to the gorgeous inland Tuscany and towns like San Gimignano and Volterra, close to the famous Bolgheri wine district.

- The villa is a great starting place for both running, cycling and hiking (there are plenty of very nice footpaths in the hills - a bit hard to find but they are there)

Lowlights (this is really minor stuff, but all is not picture perfect):

- The internet connection is not much to rely on. It works for the occasional e-mail, but not much more.

- The nearby mining plant is in view from parts of the property, and produces occasional noise.

- The outdoor area could use some more maintanance

Recommend? Yes!

Go back? I hope so

  • 4 of 5

No complaints regarding the property - nice house in a very calm and quiet place. Restaurants and supermarkets easily accessible by car.

The only issue (not stated in advertation) is a huge industrial object in veasibility. Don't know anything wether it is dangerous or not. Anyway it is worth notice.

  • 5 of 5

Super séjour dans cette magnifique maison au calme dans la campagne toscane.

Maison spacieuse, très confortable avec tout l'équipement nécessaire.

Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Stefania qui est à votre disposition si vous avez le moindre problème.

A recommander sans hésiter.
