"We really enjoyed our st...

  • 5 of 5

"We really enjoyed our stay in this old, beautifully renovated country house, surrounded by a big garden with swimming pool. The kitchen is very well equipped. The children appreciated the toys available (petanque, football game and toys to play in water). For those who like to take pictures, the surrounding landscape is very scenic. In the distance you see the towers of Volterra. As the villa lies on the top of a hill, there''s often a slight breeze which helps you to survive the heat at noon. For most of the rooms, The thick walls and small windows are helpful too. Mosquitos can be ennoying in the evening, as they are in a lot of places in Tuscany. The villa lies on a calm spot next to the strada regionale which links Volterra to Colle di Val d''Elsa. A 15 min drive takes you to Volterra where you find shops and supermarkets. The house owner is very friendly and helpful. For all who want to combine sun bathing with culture, calm and good food, this is an excellent place to stay.

la maison est grande, pratique d'accès à coté la route et bien située pour visiter la maison a beaucoup de cachet et possède une grande hauteur qui permet de manger à l'ombre par beau temps...

Par contre beaucoup d'insectes à l 'interieur de la maison : araignées ,cafards...surement le charme des vieilles maisons!

et un équipement de cuisine qui serait à revoir ( des assiettes qui ne sont plus blanches mais jaunes...)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We always listen carefully to our guests comments, in fact we have gone through our kitchen equipment and replaced items that were outdated (a few pans and a toaster oven). Regarding the dishes we would like to point out that there are 2 sets, 1 is white and 1 set is cream colored (it has never been white!). We do all that we can to make sure that the villa is spotless when guests arrive. However, it is normal that there are beetles and insects in the country, and it is natural that living in the property, and going inside and outside some insects may come in the house, but this is part of living in the countryside. We are glad that you enjoyed the location and the character of the house, we hope to have you here again in the future.

Grande maison pour 1 à 2 familles

  • 3 of 5

Grande maison agréable et propre à notre arrivée avec une belle piscine très bien entretenue.

La maison est très bien située pour effectuer des visites comme Volterra, Sienne, Pise.

Nous remercions le propriétaire pour son accueil et sa disponibilité.

Petits points négatifs :

- la maison est assez proche d'une route très fréquentée et est dérangeante la nuit.

-l'équipement de la cuisine laisse un peu à désirer au vu du prix de location demandé en haute saison.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, it was a pleasure to have you! We are glad you enjoyed your stay here. We have not previously received complaints about the road before, but we are very clear on our website about its proximity to the house because we want guests to know as much as possible before they arrive. We always compare the price of our house to other similar properties, and we believe it is a very fair price for an independent villa with private pool in Tuscany (32 euros per night per person for a group of 12). However, we will look at our kitchen and see what we can change to improve for the future!
