Great holidays in a wonderful house with a huge swimmingpool!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful holidays with family and friends in the beautiful old house in Londa! The landscape is amazing and there is much to explore nearby. So we visited Florence, Pisa and the beautiful village Poppi with its old castle, which is really worth seeing.

The house is located high in the tuscany hills and it is an adventure to get up and down, but with the help of our very caring and helpful hosts it was no problem to find it.

So we could highly recommend the house and would love to come again!

A pieni voti!

  • 5 of 5

Io e il mio gruppo di amici abbiamo affittato queste proprietà per ben 4 giorni (dal 28/12/2014 al 02/01/2015). Abbiamo passato un incantevole capodanno poiché entrambi le abitazioni disponevano di tutti i comfort necessari. Per noi è stato fondamentale quel soggiorno in cui vi sono un grande tavolo e un enorme camino il quale riscalda tutta la stanza ed è lì che abbiamo passato la maggior parte del nostro tempo. Il primo gennaio abbiamo avuto un problema con le tubature ma si è risolto in men che non si dica grazie alla disponibilità dei proprietari e di coloro che ne hanno fatto le veci.

Perciò promuoviamo questa esperienza a pieni voti!

Chouette séjour en famille

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un séjour en famille très agréable. Calme pour les parents et idéal pour laisser les enfants jouer sans déranger d'autres voisins. Un magnifique gîte au creux des collines de Londa. Une très belle nature (du coup beaucoup d'insectes dont il vaut mieux se prémunir). La piscine quasi pour nous seuls durant une semaine. Elle pourrait cependant, être un peu mieux aménagée (meilleurs sièges et meilleur recouvrement de sol). Florence est à 30 km mais il faut compter une petite heure de route tout de même.

  • 5 of 5

"Le case ed il contesto geografico sono esattamente conformi alla descrizione; ci si sta comodi anche in tredici, il riscaldamento e le attrezzature sono adeguati, e i proprietari molto disponibili. L''unico difetto è la ripida strada sterrata che conduce alle case: è molto sdrucciolevole e soggetta a ghiaccio, il che ne rende quasi impossibile la percorribilità nelle ore notturne."
