Not good

  • 1 of 5

Well.. Honestly, I do not understand all the good reviews. Here are our experiences:

The location is very secluded and quiet - which we liked! However, getting there in anything but a small car is impossible. Very narrow, unpaved road with sharp turns. If your car is unable to get there, be prepared to park about 1 km away.

The property was pretty, large, and very quiet - no loud neighbors or noises - so that was a big plus!

Cons:

The kitchen was meagerly equipped - the stove was powered by a propane gas tank under the cabinet which had to be opened and closed every time you wanted to prepare a meal. Living room: dining table and chairs (uncomfortable!) and a 2 seater-sofa... so where would 4 people sit other than at the table??

Bathrooms: shower was a mere drizzle - no hot water! When I addressed it with the landlord he first said that it was fine... then he admitted that there was a problem which he will repair once we are gone... great!! The shower stall was very narrow - only 85 cm wide, no duct or window. Only 2 hooks - so where would 4 people hang their towels??

Bedrooms: Master bedroom was big and spacious - but only 7 clothes hangers in the closet - so do not bring many clothes! Second bedroom did not even have a door - just a curtain- no privacy!. No room for a chair even - only 5.2 m2. The beds were okay - not too good - but the pillows were very hard - woke up with a stiff neck every morningl...And so on... Could be a nice property if one took the time and a little bit of money to make it comfortable.

Will definitely not come back!!

A lovely house

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely house with a fantastic garden. A great location to be based with good access to the wonderful mountains or for visiting the local towns and cities. Cristina and her father were very helpful and we would love to return again at some point.

Great, quiet house with great views

  • 5 of 5

We loved Casa del Sole! A great place to enjoy the nature and come to peace. We used the big garden for our kids, to run around and we set up a swimming pool. The house has everything you need to have a relax stay. Thereby is the location also functional, 45 min to Pisa, 75 min to Florence, 120 min to Siena. We would recommend the house because the owners take really good care of their guest and make you feel at home with special attention (we received to taste tomatoes of the field nearby the house and wine from the region).

Tuscan paradise

  • 5 of 5

My stay here with my friends was absolutely fantastic! We were completely shocked with the views surrounding this beautiful cottage, it's far better than the pictures!

The inside has a cozy feeling, making you feel at home with all the basics supplies you could want.

Just down the road is the train station with regular times to all the main sightseeing spots, like Florence and Luca!

We ate in a local restaurant, about a 10 minute walk down the road, which was also really lovely and great value for money.

Cristina and her Father welcomed us into the cottage, and gave us lots of useful information and were very kind!

Overall, it couldn't have been any better! We thank you so much and hope to return one day!
