Das tollste Ferienhaus, daß wir je hatten :-)

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa LeVallecchie ist traumhaft. Wir können nur positives berichten und sie bestens weiter empfehlen!

Das Haus bietet für 8 Personen viel Platz und die dicken Wände sorgen für kühle Räume. Der Billard-Tisch ist ein echtes Highlight!

Die Terrasse ist direkt vor der Küche. Der große Tisch steht unter einem hohen und dichten Baum, der den ganzen Tag über für einen angenehmen Schatten sorgt.

Die herrliche Aussicht in die typisch toskanische Landschaft - mit Siena im Hintergrund - kann man von jeder Stelle des Gartens aus genießen. Aufgrund der enormen Größe des Gartens und der vielen Bäume kann jeder für sich ein ruhiges, schattiges Plätzchen finden. Und der Parkplatz befindet sich in einem kleinen Wäldchen, sodaß auch die Autos vor der Sonne geschützt sind.

Der Swimmingpool ist mit ca 12x6 m sehr groß und war bei uns in Dauerbenutzung.

Das gesamte Haus und Areal ist sauber und gepflegt. Sogar ein Gärtner kam von Zeit zu Zeit vorbei um den Garten und den Pool zu pflegen.

Für Mountainbiker sei erwähnt, daß direkt von der Villa aus eine Mountainbikestrecke mit vielen verschiedenen Wegen beginnt, welche meist durch den schattigen Wald verlaufen.

Für jeden, der einen ruhigen, entspannten Urlaub in der Natur liebt, ist die Villa LeVallecchie zu empfehlen! Man braucht allerdings ein Auto um dort hin zu gelangen, da sie direkt im Wald am Fuße eines Berges gelegen ist, zu welchem keine öffentliche Verkehrsmittel führen.

Wir waren noch nie so erholt wie nach diesen 2 Wochen.

Une petite merveille!Terrific spot!

  • 5 of 5

Un accueil extrêmement chaleureux par quatre personnes y compris la fille de la propriétaire venue spécialement de Rome, et comprenant plateau de fruit, vins locaux, eau, pecorino et jambon cru! Tout est fourni pour notre plus grand confort! C'est bien plus beau et plus grand que ne le laissent paraître les photos. Cette propriété peut convenir à tous les âges, du plus petit au plus grand. La région regorge de lieux magnifiques et Sienne, qui est juste à côté, est superbe. Bref, n'hésitez pas une minute à choisir ce lieu hors du commun!

Very warm welcome by four people including the owner's daugher especially coming from Rome, with fruits, regional wines, water, pecorino and local prosciutto. This house is fully furnished with everything and anything you would need during your stay. Actually it is far bigger and prettier than on the website pictures. This property is suitable for people of any age, from the youngest to the eldest. The region is full of wonderful places, including the very close Siena, which is amazing! In brief, just don't hesitate to book this terrific uncommon spot!

Amazing villa with a beautiful view of Siena

  • 5 of 5

The villa was very clean and fully equipped, exactly as described in the advertising. The host (Miss. Mary) kindly welcomed us on arrival and helped with luggage; she also explained how to use all the amenities of the villa (wifi connection, dishewasher, outside lights in the garden, the oven, etc.). Furthermore, a bottle of Chianti wine, typical Siena's cheese and ham were greeting us in the kitchen! Certainly the best place we have been staying at in Italy so far.

We would highly recommend the villa and certainly like to stay there in the future again if possible!
