A lovely, modern family apartment with huge garden

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four - two adults and children aged 7 and 4 - stayed here for two weeks in August 2017. Nicola and his family made us hugely welcome from the start and we were delighted with the apartment which was much larger than the photos make out and very thoughtfully furnished and well equiped. Nicola made sure we had everything we needed, including some lovely local wine and olive oil! The apartment was perfectly placed to explore the region - we had lovely days in Florence and Pisa interspersed with visits to some of the beautiful countryside and hill top towns (Volterra San Gimignano and Certaldo being particular highlights), and the Chiani region too of course! We also spent several relaxing afternoons and evenings in the lovely big garden. Overall we had a fantastic time and can't recommend this property strongly enough - it was a perfect family holiday and we left with brilliant photos and wonderful memories. We will absolutely be back!!

Super semaine en Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons trouvé ce gîte super agréable et très bien aménagé. Nicolas nous a très bien accueilli ainsi que ses parents qui sont adorables, une famille souriante et très généreuse.

De plus, la ville Castelfiorentino est très bien placée pour visiter les grandes villes de la Toscane.

J'ai hâte d'y retourner avec mon mari.

Un grand merci à Nicolas ainsi qu'aux parents.

Paradise in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the best holiday's we have ever had as a family. Such a beautiful location, the tranquility in the air was intoxicating. The owner and their family were so helpful and friendly.To top it all, we were only a 5 minute drive through country roads to the historic town of Certaldo which has a stunning public swimming pool for only 7 euro for the day. My daughter loved the children's pool which has a fountain and a Jacuzzi.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone which is great value for money! We look forward to our next visit. Thank you for such a fantastic experience.

Une semaine extra

  • 5 of 5

Un grand Merci à Nicola et à ses parents de nous avoir accueilli dans son gîte. L'emplacement est idéal pour sillonner et découvrir la Toscane. Le gîte est propre, spacieux et bien équipé (moustiquaires à toutes les fenêtres). Les ventilateurs étaient vraiment appréciables. La connexion internet est d'excellente qualité. J'avais soucis à cause du train mais nous avons passé des nuits paisibles car les fenêtres donnent de l'autre côté et il m'a semblé qu'il n'en circulait pas la nuit car, même avec les fenêtres ouvertes, nous ne les avons pas entendu. Les enfants adoraient les voir passer en pleine journée et ils ont pu jouer dans le jardin en toute sécurité. Les propriétaires sont accueillants, aimables et serviables. Nous avons pu goûter aux salades et tomates de leur potager... un vrai régal. Ils nous ont également invité à un apéritif à la fin de notre séjour. Nous avons apprécié les conseils et l'adresse d'un château dans le Chianti qui fût une belle découverte. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir dans ce gîte.
