House located in very quiet environment outside of the city. Well fournished with kitchen tools ans beds. It was clean and in good condition. Just a bit difficult to find on our arrival but it was really worthing it. Garden is a bit small to eat outside. I would cerrtainly recommend the place.

The accomodation was awes...

  • 5 of 5

The accomodation was awesome. Clean, tiday and very spacious. Ideal for families - our three boys ended up playing soccer at the grounds near by with some of the local kids. Also very close to some lovely Tuscan villages without having to endure the throngs of tourists all of the time.

Un lieu plein de charme!

  • 5 of 5

Nous étions 6, quatre adultes et deux ados. Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette très belle location. Nous avons tous été charmés par ce lieu, ancienne abbaye divisée en plusieurs logements dont la location qui dispose d'un espace extérieur très confortable, avec une table en terrasse, des chaises longues, un barbecue. A proximité, le terrain de foot a fait le bonheur de certains d'entre nous. La maison est spacieuse, extrêmement bien équipée, le calme environnant, les vignes, les arbres fruitiers, sa situation à l'écart (un peu) des lieux les plus touristiques et les voisins très sympathiques nous donnaient envie de ne plus bouger. La maison est très bien située pour visiter San Gimignano, Sienne, Florence, Voltera. Sienne et Florence sont accessible par train de Certaldo avec des trains fréquents.

Un très grand merci à Giacomo pour son accueil et sa gentillesse. Nous recommandons très vivement!
