Bella accoglienza, casa bella e funzionale

  • 5 of 5

Ottima vacanza. Ospite gentilissimo e prodigo di suggerimenti turistici e enogastronomici. Zona tranquilla immersa nel verde e nella storia della Toscana. Anche il rintocco orario della campana (non notturno) è memoria di altri tempi. Accesso ad un bel mare (e.g. golfo di Baratti) e alle splendide città Toscane ( da Siena a Pistoia) lungo strade di grande valore paesaggistico. Provato cucina toscana semplice ma d'eccellenza (Agr. Gherardini), nonchè abbordabile anche per famiglia numerosa come la nostra.

I figli in particolare hanno apprezzato il tuffo in piscina al ritorno dalle gite quotidiane.

Charmante demeure ancienne au sein de la campagne Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons été enchantés par notre séjour en Toscane.Cette location à Alica est très agréable. C'est un bel appartement très bien aménagé, restauré avec beaucoup de goût et dans un superbe environnement. La vue panoramique sur la campagne Toscane est magnifique. On ne s'en lasse pas. L'endroit est calme et reposant. Idéalement situé à proximité des belles villes de Lucca, Pisa, Firenze, Siena, des beaux villages médiévaux de Voltera, San Gimignano... Fabio, notre hôte, a toujours de très bons conseils à prodiguer : pour les meilleurs itinéraires choisir, les auberges à essayer, les spécialités à tester... nous avons apprécié particulièrement le village de Lari avec la fabrication de pâtes artisanales Martelli et le dîner typiquement toscan à Palaia (Agriturismo Gherardini) et son fameux dessert : biscuits secs trempés dans le Vin Santo.

C'est sur, nous reviendrons en Toscane et chez Fabio.

Molte grazie e presto, Fabio. Ciao, Ciao

Maravillosa y excelente opcion para conocer la toscana.

  • 5 of 5

Toda la família hemos disfrutado del ambiente, comodidades y maravillosas vistas que se respira en la casa.

Cómo todo enamorado de su tierra, Fabio nos has mimado y aconsejado para realizar visitas y conocer sitios. Des del primer momento hasta el último se ha preocupado por nuestro bienestar.

La piscina a la que se puede acceder a 5 minutos en coche es ideal para los niños y descansar un poco los adultos de los paseos por estas maravillosas tierras, llenas de historia, paisajes de viñedos, campos de girasoles y olivos. Su ubicación es perfecta para ir a la principales ciudades y pueblos: Pisa, Florencia, Siena...

En coche a dos minutos hay dos supermercados muy grandes, en uno se puede comprar comida preparada.

Los niños un poco mayores pueden ir solos por los alrededores, es un ambiente muy seguro.

No tuvimos ningún problema con el aparcamiento del coche, hay sitio para aparcar a 30 metros.

Las noches en la terraza son mágicas, estrellas, silencio y vistas.

Recomendamos la visita a pastas Martelli en Lari, Volterra, Florencia y Siena.

La casa tiene todas las comodidades y accesorios que se describen en la web. La limpieza es excelente.

Buena opción para familias y parejas que busquen un ambiente toscano.

Si volvemos a la Toscana repetiremos. Muchas gracias Fabio.

Excellent séjour en Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans une location très pittoresque, un appartement situé dans une belle bâtisse toscane, restaurée avec goût. La vue depuis la place du château (sur laquelle se trouve l'appartement) est imprenable sur la campagne environnante. La piscine était momentanément hors service mais Fabio, notre hôte extrêmement serviable, a fait son maximum pour nous rendre le séjour agréable et nous a permis l'accès à une autre piscine à 5 minutes de l'appartement. Nous sommes ravis de ce séjour tant pour l'accueil réservé par Fabio que par l'emplacement de la location. Merci à Fabio pour sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse!

Magnifique demeure au milieu de la Toscane

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré notre séjour dans le magnifique logement de Fabio près de Palaia. Ce château offre une vue imprenable sur la campagne Toscane. Le logement est très fonctionnel, bien équipé et propre. Les enfants ont aimé la piscine (peu profonde). Nous avons apprécié la proximité des fabuleux sites de Lucca, Pisa, Firenze, les villages exceptionnelles de San Miniato, Volterra et San Gimignano. Fabio a été de très bons conseils, il nous a permis de visiter le village de Lari (fabrication de pâtes artisanales Martelli), dîner italien à l'Agriturismo Gherardini à Palaia que nous avons particulièrement apprécié par la qualité, la diversité du menu et le prix. Nous avons également visité les musés Piaggio (Pondetera) et Lenoard de Vinci (Vinci). Enfin, je tiens à saluer l'excellent accueil que Fabio nous a réservé, il a été durant notre séjour de très bons conseils et à notre écoute. Nous reviendrons très certainement. William, Virginia et les enfants.
