"absolutely first rate accomodation and reception. Well equipped, comfortable and beautiful to boot. Very gracious, friendly and discrete hosts. A special treat were the fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs delivered to our doorstep, and the stocking of the kitchen on our arrival (day when the food shops were closed). Would definately recommend and do intend to return."

Wunderbar und erholsam

  • 5 of 5

Es war ein wunderschöner Urlaub und wir wurden herzlich von Gianna und ihrer lieben Familie aufgenommen, und bestens versorgt mit frisch geernteten Tomaten, Pfirsichen und frischen Eiern. Das Haus liegt idyllisch mit Blick auf einen Hügel samt Castell und Olivenhain. Florenz in 20 Minuten mit dem Auto erreichbar. Die Kinder waren verzückt von Garten und Pool. Genauso wie unser Hund, der herzlich willkommen war. Nur zu empfehlen für Familien mit nicht zu kleinen Kindern- viele Stufen, und perfekt für Erkundungen der Chianti-Gegend. Wir kommen gerne wieder! Vielen Dank!

Posto stupendo !

  • 5 of 5

Siamo stati in questo fantastico posto una settimana accompagnati dai nostri due amici a quattro zampe !! La casina è perfetta per chi ama stare nella natura e per chi ama viaggiare con i propri animali!!infatti la casina possiede un ampio spazio esterno tutto recintato e di un'area con la piscina in cui rinfrescarsi e prendere il sole!! Inoltre la casa è situata in una zona non molto lontana da Firenze ed è quindi comoda per chi vuole visitare la città, ma allo stesso tempo restare fuori dalla vita frenetica e dalle folle di turisti che popolano regolarmente Firenze. La disponibilità della signora Gianna e Riccardo ( i proprietari di casa) è unica !

Sehr schöner Urlaub vom 29.7.-12.8.2017

  • 5 of 5

Vielen Dank für den sehr schönen erholsamen Urlaub an die Familie Aterini.

Von der ersten Minute an haben wir uns wohlgefühlt, die Familie Aterini ist sehr Herzlich und familiär.

Wir 2 Personen 55 J und 57 J mit Hund haben in der Fewo einen sehr schönen Urlaub verbracht.

Bei der Ankunft wurden wir sehr herzlich von Gianna empfangen, die Wohnung ist sehr gut vorbereitet gewesen. Kalte Getränke im Kühlschrank , Klimaanlage eingeschaltet, Käse, Marmelade, Kaffee, Tee, Pasta , Wein und Hausgemachtes Olivenöl für den ersten Bedarf haben wir in der gut eingerichteten Küche vorgefunden.

Ein liebevoll gestaltete Mappe mit Informationen der Region und Bahn und Bus Fahrplänen.

( Bahn 5 min entfernt, direkte Verbindung nach Florenz 25 min Fahrzeit) haben wir auf dem großen Esstisch im liebevoll eingerichteten Wohnzimmer vorgefunden. ( die hat uns sehr geholfen).

Wir sind reichlich mit frischen Gemüse, Obst und Eiern aus dem Garten von Ewa und Gianna versorgt worden.

Waschmaschine und Trockner steht zu Verfügung.

Den Terrassen und Gartenbereich der Fewo mit einem sehr gut gepflegten Pool haben wir reichlich genutzt. Der nahe Ort (5 min.) Pontassieve bietet sehr gute Enkaufsmöglichkeiten ( Coop und Wochenmarkt am Mi. von 6-15 Uhr ist zu empfehlen).

Ausflüge in die wunderschöne Toskana sind ein muss.

Am Abreisetag sind wir von der Gianna und Ewa sehr herzlich verabschiedet worden. Man merkt das es der Familie Aterini sehr am Herzen liegt das die Gäste sich wohlfühlen.

Wir kommen gerne wieder.

Liebe Grüße von Ewa und Hinni an die Familie Aterini
