Lovely flat with incredibly welcoming and warm owners

  • 5 of 5

Had a great week using the flat as a base to explore Tuscany and returning late afternoon to use the fantastic pool and gardens.

It was a great place to stay for our family (3 children) and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed. Great visit to the Pinocchio Park just 15 mins away....

Very nice little apartment with amazing views in a beautiful tuscan house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5, with 3 children and a golden retriever, was very warmly welcomed by Gabriele and Daniela to this very nicely furnished apartment in the second (top) floor of a beautiful tuscan house. The apartment is comfortable, with all needed amenities, and even has air conditioning, something that is not obvious in Italy. At night, at least in August, it is great to leave the windows open while turning the air conditioning off for optimal coolness (mosquitos are held at bay by perfectly installed mosquito nets). The host are really great people, open to explain everything and show you around their place.

The pool is very nicely set in a perfectly groomed garden, even with a small toilet house and shower right beside it. If one ventures just 50 meters beyond the pool and across olive trees, one will find their personal vineyard and lots of fruit trees, from figs to pears and apples. Coming late August and early September will yield plenty of fresh, ripe fruit moments, picked straight from the trees.

The tuscan house itself is placed right beside three other houses, inhabited by locals. All of them are warm and welcoming people, and respect the silence needed for a good sleep from dusk till dawn, even during weekdays.

The region itself is slightly different from the inner tuscan country side, but this doesn't make it any less beautiful. The quaint town of Monte Carlo can be seen from the apartment, and really is a gem waiting to be discovered. Make sure to try the refreshing white wines of the region, being itself a DOCG region. And while discussing wine, Gabriele and Daniela make their own wine for personal use, and have shared a few delicious bottles with us.

All in all it has been a very pleasant stay, and we are looking forward to returning soon. A great thank you to Daniela and Gabriele for making our family vacation so special.

SEJOUR INOUBLIABLE EN TOSCANE

  • 5 of 5

nous venons de passer 1 semaine à MONTECARLO , chez DANIELA et GABRIELLA.

la villa est comme décrite sur le site, MAGNIFIQUE, un lieu reposant et idéalement situé pour la visite de FIRENZE, LUCCA, PISA, S GIMIGNANO etc...

ce qui est exceptionnel c'est notre rencontre avec nos hôtes, chaleureux, accueillants toujours disponibles( malgré leur emploi du temps très chargé); ils étaient toujours prêts à nous donner les meilleurs infos pour nos différents déplacements, et à l'écoute de nos impressions à nos retours de ballades.

très bons contacts, également avec les différents commerçants du secteur.

nous avons fort apprécié vos petits cadeaux, à notre arrivée; nous ne manquerons pas de conseiller à notre entourage cette adresse MAGIQUE....

Fantastic place - nice apartment, lovely garden and very kind hosts

  • 5 of 5

Our family, two adults and three kids visited the apartment two weeks in July 2017. We were welcomed by our hosts Danielle and Gabriele, who are extremely kind and friendly. At our arrival, they quickly presented the facility and we felt welcome right away. There were very helpful with any question we might have, that being where to buy food, local wine or olive oil, but also how to travel with train to Florence or information regarding other things we wanted to explore.

The flat is on the second floor (there is two flats for rent), in an old beautiful Tuscan house two kilometers from the small town Montecarlo. First floor is workroom and our host lives in ground floor. The house have a very nice garden. You can sit under the trees and enjoy your meal, you can enjoy the pool, walk under olive trees or between wine plants in the wine field. There are plenty of garden games and even a ping-pong table.

The flat have all you need and is well equipped. A small room with one bed, a combined kitchen and living area with a double size sleeping sofa, a nice bathroom and a big bedroom with a king-size bed. At nights, you can use the air-conditioning or you can simple open the windows for a natural cooling. All windows have Mosquito net.

At ground floor, you have access to a small kitchen fully equipped with glasses, plates etc. for your use. There is even a separate toilet in the garden near the pool area.

The house is located centrally, not long from either Lucca, Pisa or Florence and in quiet surroundings.

As stated on the side of the house: “This must be the place”

Parfait à tous points de vue, allez-y les yeux fermés.

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes une famille avec deux enfants, âgés de 4 et 12 ans. Le séjour a été parfait à tous points de vue.

La maison est encore plus agréable à vivre qu'elle n'en donne déjà l'impression sur les photos, qui sont pourtant déjà alléchantes. Il est tout à fait possible d'y passer des journées entières si on le souhaite.

Si l'on souhaite visiter dans les environs, tout est possible (à condition, tout de même, de faire un peu de route) : Lucca assez proche (25 min environ), pour de petits déplacements réguliers (visite de la ville, shopping, resto, marché,...), Pise, Florence, petits villages dans la région de Pise, bord de mer, carrières de marbre de Carrare.... Un peu plus loin, (1h-1h30) on peut aller jusqu'à Sienne, faire la route du Chianti,..., et j'en oublie.

Une combinaison parfaite entre le bien être à la maison et les possibilités de visite, adaptables en fonction de l'âge des enfants.

Et pour finir l'accueil extraordinaire des propriétaires, Gabriele et Daniela, qui parlent très bien français (avantage non négligeable quand on ne parle pas du tout italien...). On sent que tout est fait dans la maison pour rendre le séjour des visiteurs agréable (installations de qualité, mise à disposition de beaucoup de choses qui peuvent parfois manquer dans d'autres locations). Et une très grande gentillesse qui met tout le monde à l'aise.

Bref, un séjour que nous ne sommes pas prêts d'oublier.

Exceptionnel !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons vraiment passé une excellente semaine. L'appartement est spacieux et très propre, le jardin magnifique et immense, et la piscine très agréable. La localisation est également excellente, proche de Lucca, de Pise, de la mer, mais aussi d'une gare pour se rendre à Florence. Et cerise sur le gâteau, nous avons été vraiment super bien accueillis par nos hôtes Grabriele et Daniella: ils sont super sympas, très prévenants et de très bons conseils. À recommander!!
