Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The house is lovely, with a warm lived-in feeling, and unbelievable views of the Tuscan countryside. Highly recommended place to stay for enjoying San Gimignano, Siena, and Chianti.

  • 5 of 5

"The apartment is situated in quiet surroundings with excellent views over Tuscan countryside. From the pool and from the courtyard there is a beautiful view of San Gimignano. It is situated in the hamlet of Casaglia, just a few kilometres from the town of Poggibonsi, where you can find all the facilities for everyday living (supermarket, gas station, post office, train station); and above all, Poggibonsi is strategically placed halfway between Firenze and Siena with direct access to the highway. Other towns (San Gimignano, Volterra, Colle di Val d'Elsa) are also within thirty minutes to one hour drive.

Friendly owners, Marcella and Andrea, explained us all the basic necessities; there was even a delicious meal of typical local appetizers, lasagne and cake waiting for us upon our arrival. The apartment itself is comfortable, furnished in cosy Tuscan style and adorned with paintings of the surrounding countryside. The apartment is one of seven in what appears to be an old farm. The windows don't offer direct views of the countryside, but that actually doesn't matter if the goal of your Tuscan stay is sightseeing or if it is warm enough to stay outside enjoying the pool or the private plot of garden with barbacue. It is reasonably priced and equipped with everything you need for a pleasant stay; there is also access to a fenced parking space. For us, it was also very important that we were able to use central heating, as in the evenings of early May it became somewhat chilly. "

VACACIONES INOLVIDABLES

  • 5 of 5

Estuvimos en el apartamento de Donatella y Antonio. Es un piso independiente que forma parte de una mansión toscana situada en Casaglia, una preciosa colina rodeada de viñedos y olivos. Espectaculares vistas de San Gimignano desde las ventanas del salón o desde la piscina, en un lugar tranquilo y relajante.

En cinco o seis minutos se baja a Poggibonsi, una localidad con grandes supermercados, gasolineras, comercios de venta directa de productos locales (vinos, aceites, quesos...) y situada junto a la autovía que une Florencia y Siena, lo que fácilmente permite moverse por la región. Ciudades y pueblos encantadores, valles y carreteras perdidas, playas, termas naturales... todo un sinfín de excursiones para disfrutar.

El piso es acogedor, está amueblado con buen gusto, y dispone del equipamiento y comodidades necesarias.

Es fácil llegar con las precisas indicaciones de Marcela.

Tanto Donatella, que nos recibió calurosamente a nuestra llegada, como su marido Antonio, o la propia Marcela, son unas personas muy amables y de un trato exquisito.

Sin duda volveríamos a repetir esta inolvidable experiencia.

LOGEMENT TRES AGREABLE, CALME ET PROPRE. BIEN SITUE ET PROCHE DE SAN GIMIGNANO AVEC UNE VUE SUPERBE MAIS AUSSI UN POINT DE DEPART IDEAL POUR VISITER LA TOSCANE ,A MI CHEMIN ENTRE SIENNE ET FLORENCE.

L'ACCUEIL DE MARCELLA A ETE CHALEUREUX ET NOUS AVONS APPRECIE LE REPAS OFFERT LORS DE NOTRE ARRIVEE, CE QUI NOUS A EVITE DE SE PRECIPITER POUR QUELQUES COURSES

.NOUS RECOMMANDONS VIVEMENT CE LIEU .MERCI POUR CES QUELQUES JOURS
