Logement beau et confortable proche de Florence

  • 5 of 5

Logement très agréable dans la campagne toute proche de Florence.

Aménagé avec goût, en très bon état et très bien équipé (clim, salle de bain et toilettes pour chaque chambre).

A seulement 2 mns de voiture + 12mns de train du centre de Florence.

De plus, accueil très sympa d'Andrea et de son fils Lorenzo. Discrets, ils sont toujours disponibles pour vous aider.

Grande piscine, ou l'on peut vraiment nager. Peut-être moins bien adaptée pour les tout petits.

Toller Urlaub, immer wieder gerne :)

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zu viert im Hayloft Appartement und es war super! Das Appartement wurde neu renoviert, die Zimmer waren groß genug, die sanitären Einrichtungen sehr sauber, eine Klimaanlage ist in den Schlafzimmern vorhanden. Der Pool ist in ca. 2 Gehminuten zu erreichen. Dieser ist groß genug um einige Bahnen zu schwimmen. Der Ausblick und die Ruhe in den Bergen inmitten der Olivenhain ist einfach nur wunderbar und man kann sich hier wirklich gut erholen. Andrea war ein wunderbarer Gastgeber. Er hat uns herzlich empfangen und uns alles gezeigt, ebenso konnten wir immer auf seine Hilfe und Unterstützung zählen!

Macht weiter so, wir kommen gerne wieder!

Beautiful house in the Tuscan countryside

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at la Fattoria for a week in June. We had a wonderful stay - beautiful house and surroundings, great location and a very warm welcome from the Passigli family. Highly recommended for a family/friend holiday or a romantic break. Perfect place if you're looking for a chilled, relaxing holidays.
