Beautiful location, great view, and fantastic pool!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent, private location. Owners are very helpful. Prospective renters should be aware that there is a factory down the hillside directly in front of the house, which isn’t shown in pictures and can be heard, as well as a train. Also, the kitchen is very dated and not inviting or very usable...no spices provided and appliances are very old. House does NOT come stocked with essentials such as soap, paper towels, trash bags, etc... There is also a narrow, spiral staircase connecting the two levels of the house which is tricky to navigate. Again, the location is stunning, the pool is fabulous, but the house ammeneties do leave much to be desired.

Owner's Response: Hello Jessica, thanks for your review. I am happy that you have enjoyed the house and the pool. Thanks also for the other suggestions that will be helpful to improve our property. As for the criticism about the lack of spices, soap, etc. I just have to specify that there was no written word in the announcement that they would be provided. Hope to see you again in Tuscany, warmest regards, Luca
