The photos of your wonderful home popped up in preparing my review and they immediately whisked me back! The photos do not do justice to this beautiful property. It is ideally located just a short drive from Volterra and offered easy access to numerous Tuscan cities. The property offers sweeping, panoramic views of the the countryside and the lights of Volterra are beautiful at night. The property is nicely appointed and the pool is great. It was a pleasure to meet with the property owners, who were very nice and offered great advice on travel, dinning, etc. This property would be great for a group of people traveling together who would also like their own space as there are three units available. There's a supermarket about 10 minutes away but the town of Montecatini is just a few minutes down the road and has essentials, i.e. pharmacy, bakery, cafe/bar, restaurant, hardware store, etc. The farmers market on Friday was nice. Our apartment (Bosco) was very clean! We would highly recommend this property and look forward to visiting again!
Wir hatten einen tollen und erholsamen Urlaub. Die Beschreibung sowie die Fotos in dem Online-Inserat stimmten voll mit dem vorgefundenem Feriendomizil überein. Sauberkeit und Ausstattung waren super, kompletter Wäschewechsel nach einer Woche (incl. Bettwäsche) klasse. Die Vermieter waren immer für unsere Fragen da und gaben uns Tipps für Ausflüge und Restaurantbesuche. Wir werden dieses wunderschöne alte Stein-Bauernhaus auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und würden gerne selber hier noch einmal einen traumhaften Urlaub verbringen.
