Good location for a home-base

  • 4 of 5

Alessio was very helpful and answered e-mails promptly. I had a disconcerting GPS problem taking me to a location 2 h away where I was supposed to meet Alessio and get keys for the house. He arranged for me to meet the person who takes care of the property instead, Remo who was very nice and helpful. We end up not having time to spend at the house since everyday we drove somewhere else but I cooked regular meals for breakfast and dinner and found all basics we needed. We had similar experience as previous guests. Being from NYC, proximity to the road didn't bother us and noise of cars very infrequent at night (I didn't hear at all). No cell phone reception in the property at all, I even crossed the road and tried different spots, but was ok without it. No internet connection as well but I was ok with. We kept ourselves busy, so even my 13yo daughter survived without internet. Since this is a basic country house, expect the common bugs (beetles, flies, daddy-long-legs, moths) around outside and some inside, which was a bit of my problem for my 10yo girl but her older sister made some pet friends with the abundant lizards around the place. We visited Siena, Firenze, Volterra, Massa maritima, Pisa, some hiking trails and monasteries and follonica beach.

Montagna e mare.....cosa si può volere di più?

  • 5 of 5

E' stata una settimana per ricaricare le pile. La casa e il posto sono stati fondamentali......la tranquillità, la privacy, il verde, la natura che ti avvolge ti rilassa veramente tanto. La casa ha tutto quello che serve, compresa la piscina e un bosco di proprietà tutto a disposizione. Si può scegliere di fare escursioni, andare a vedere i paesini e i borghi vicini come Montieri, Massa Marittima, Monterotondo Marittimo dove si possono vedere manifestazioni di geotermia. La Toscana è piena di località, borghi che vale la pena visitare, pensare che un giorno sbagliando strada in auto ci siamo imbattuti in una chiesa senza il tetto (abbazia di San Galgano) ed è stato un piacevole fuori programma. Si può vedere Siena, Grosseto, Livorno oppure si può fare un giro al mare che dista dalla casa solo mezz'ora di auto.... noi siamo stati a Follonica.

L'accoglienza dei proprietari è stata veramente genuina, ci hanno mostrato tutto quello che ci serviva e Remo ci ha indicato tre posticini dove andare a mangiare.

Cosa aggiungere.....la Toscana è sempre la Toscana, noi ci torneremo e ci staremo di più per disintossicarci dalla nostra pianura padana

Very great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, the welcome was very warm and friendly. The house was very clean and the garden was also a very beautiful place to stay with a nice pool to cool down. Even with outside temperatures of + 30°C the house was nice and cool. The beach of Follonica is about half an hour drive and very pretty. At night we had some company of the house fox who came over every night to search for some food. A very relaxing place to stay with very friendly owners and we will be back again!

Nice house in the hills with a large garden

  • 4 of 5

First I have to say, that both Filippo and Alessio were very nice and very helpful hosts. The house is situated in the hills, about 800 meters above sea level. We find this as an advantage, the climate during the day is much more pleasant than near the sea, because of the recognizable lower temperature. Since we are a family with two small kids, this house offering a good base when you decide to spend the whole day there. The big advantage is also the garden which is really large and nice, with lot of trees, small swimming pool etc. The nearest town(5km) is Montieri, nice small historical town hidden in the hills. You can buy the basics there(small Coop, bakery, butcher, for bigger shopping you should definitely visit Massa Marittima or Follonica), there is also restaurant, coffee, tourist info with very helpful staff and a lot of useful prospects. Massa Marittima is a historical town 15 km away on the way to the sea. The nearest beach is in Follonica (about 30 minutes by car). So be prepared you will travel a lot in your car, whether you want to try different beaches during your stay or you want to discover the inland with historical sights, thermal spas etc. But this is for me the essential part of the holiday in Tuscany and you have to be ready for that. Back to the house. On the ground floor, there are two garages used as a storerooms, the first floor is the living part, with two bedrooms, one living room with sofa-bed, bathroom with toilet and kitchen. In general you will find there everything you need for 2 weeks holiday with the family. The kitchen is fully equipped etc., you will have enough space inside or outside house. I have to say, we did not miss anything, but for those ones, who are looking for luxury, it is not the place, it is nice and basic. Talking about the disadvantages, there is a road going along the garden (direction to Follonica), not a big one or busy, but yes, cars are there. On the other hand, there is a very good fence around the garden and hedge up to it, so we did not have a problem with that. We did not like our double bed, it was somehow higher in the middle, going down to the edges, very soft mattress, so not very comfortable sleeping. The sink in the bath and in the lavatory outflow badly, we missed a mop also. For those who are addicted to their phones and have to spend half of the day on the internet, there is no signal. Anyway in general, we were very satisfied with this place.May be you will meet a fox as a bonus:)

Relax e natura a tutto tondo

  • 5 of 5

La vacanza che cercavamo: contatto con la natura, pace e completo relax! La casa è accogliente e dotata di tutti i confort, situata in una zona adatta sia a chi ama le escursioni, sia a chi ama una vita più tranquilla e rilassata alla scoperta dei paesini e dei borghi limitrofi. Il più grande pregio della proprietà sono il giardino e il bosco privato...unici per una vacanza a contatto con la natura al di fuori della porta di casa!!!! Infine devo ringraziare i proprietari, gentili e disponibili, ci hanno accolto come persone di famiglia...insomma un soggiorno consigliatissimo e sicuramente da ripetere!!!!!
