Nice property, spectacular views, but the interiors rather dissapointing
The property is really beautiful, located on the hill with the stunning view over the picturesque countryside and the medieval town of Rigomagno. There is a large swimming pool and a lovely garden, however the house itself could do with a bit of 'tender loving care'. It is a nice traditional farm house but neither well maintained nor cleaned properly, although additional cleaning fee is collected.
The description of the house was a bit misleading. The property was listed as a 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms house, while one of the bedrooms was certainly not up to the standards with mould on one wall, electric wires sticking out of the other one and a noisy water boiler inside of the room. The bathroom downstairs was very nice but the second bathroom upstairs was just a small toilet with a shower head, and can be accessed through one of the bedrooms only.
It was rather inconvenient that we had to deal with 4 different people. We booked through the travel agent who we talked to before. The check in and check out was handled by 3 different people. The owner and his son who did the ‘meet and greet’ were exceptionally nice and helpful (they gave us a lift when our car broke down on the way to the house). Sadly, the woman who turned up to do the check-out was quite opposite. She was unpleasant and her attitude was unacceptable. Clearly not a proper approach when one works in hospitality business.
The overall impression was that, although the estate is big and beautifully situated, the rental was not a good value for money when compared to the other rentals in Tuscany.
We thank the tenant for the compliments regarding the location, pool and garden. We don’t agree with most of the declarations that we consider unacceptable and are damaging us.
We do not agree that the description of the house is misleading. The home has been cleaned personally by Mrs. Diana on 16 Septmber, she is always very careful that everything is clean and in order on guests arrival. As written in the rental terms we ask the tenant to contact us within 24 hours to report any problem, so we do not understand why they did not us contact since, according to them words, the house was not cleaned well. The house has been rented for 10 years and NO ONE has never sent complain about the boiler in one of the double bedrooms on the first floor. In the room there is no trace of mold. We do not understand what they mean by "electric wires sticking out of the other one" (all the power outlets were controlled by the electrician in August). About the bathroom on the first floor between the photos there is a floor plan of the house where you can clearly see that the bathroom is inside the bedroom. There is also a photograph of the room where you see very clearly that the bathroom is inside the bedroom. There is a photo of the bathroom where you can clearly see that it is a small bathroom.
The day of arrival they met Alexander and Julius (who made 70 km to help since they had broken their car) seen Diana could not be there for personal reasons, while the day of departure the check-out has been made by Mrs. Diana. She called when she arrived at the house for the check-out to inform us there were dirty dishes, plates, glasses, etc in the sink and 8 sacks full of garbage. She reminded them that, as everywhere, the tenant has to clean dishes, plates, glasses, pots etc (…there is a dishwasher) and take away the rubbish. Faced with this situation the tenant could not expect a friendly behavior.
In other reviews on the site the tenants have written "Charmant accueil par Diana, the owner," "Owners are super nice and warm People", "The House was very clean and the owners was very friendly", "All kontakt med ägarna har fungerat Superbra och dom har varit väldigt trevliga och tillmötesgående "(translation: All contact with the owners has worked super and they were very nice and accommodating).
For a house with large garden, 13,5x5,5 swimming pool (all for exclusive use), 4 bedrooms (3 with air conditioning), the paid price is more than fair.
Superfint hus med underbar pool och trädgård
Superfint hus med lugnt läge. Stor trädgård med jättefin pool. Kommer gärna tillbaka, så jag kan verkligen rekommendera detta hus.
All kontakt med ägarna har fungerat superbra och dom har varit väldigt trevliga och tillmötesgående.
Bra läge för att göra utflykter till alla mysig byar och vindistrikt.
Restaurangen Scroccazucche i närmaste by kan verkligen rekommenderas.
We had a lovely few days at the villa. It's private and the grounds are beautiful. The views are amazing, especially from the pool! The BBQ was well used and the closest restaurant Scroccazucche (a short drive away) comes highly recommended!
Que la Toscane est belle, surtout vécue depuis un
Charmant accueil par Diana, la propriétaire.
Endroit idyllique, au sommet d'une colline, dans un endroit verdoyant et très calme.
Jolie piscine dans l'oliveraie et grand terrain sur lequel les enfants ont toute la place pour jouer.
Maison agréable et équipée à suffisance, pour de jolies vacances.
Mention spéciale pour les beaux fauteuils de terrasse !
Depuis la maison, la plupart des beaux sites du sud de la Toscane sont facilement accessibles (voie rapide à quelques kilomètres).
Location à conseiller vivement.
Nice house with beautifull garden. .
We stayed wih 4 adults and 2 children. The location is perfect. Beautifull views from the pool area. Very central towards Siena, Arezzo en Cortona. Going down the hill you will find a very good ristorante Scroccazucche. The house is very cosy and is very practical. The second bathrooms in one of the bedrooms is better usefull is more a big toilet then a bathroom. We loved it here.
Tuscany is a region on Italy's west coast, on the Tyrrhenian sea. It is one of the most popular places to visit in a country that is itself one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The first-time visitor to the lands of Tuscany can not but be amazed by the natural symbiosis between landscape and culture, history and the expressive means of architecture and town-planning, the urban and rural dimension, and its patrimony of art, architecture, monuments and museums. There are several reasons to visit Tuscany: some of the most important ones are visiting beautiful cities like Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa or charming town as San Gimignano, Volterra, Cortona, Montepulciano etc., eating Tuscan food and tasting the excellent local wines. Most of the important traditional wine producers are located along the axis formed by Florence and Siena. The most famous region is Chianti along with neighboring Montalcino and Montepulciano. Besides there are many other things you can do, for example, cycling, trekking, golf or go to a health spa. The Tuscany inland is characterized by hills, cultivated fields, farms, parish churches, castles, medieval hamlets. Tuscan mountains: in the Apuan Alps you will ascend into marble cathedrals, but you will also discover the kingdom of Lunigiana, full of enchanted caves and castles. The dazzling white of the quarries on one side and the wild, green valley of Garfagnana on the other. Go to the Casentino forests to discover their monasteries and hermitages along the way where nature is not the only thing to discover. You can be overcome by the triangular heights of Monte Amiata, so lonely, but at the same time full of roe and fallow deer, by mountains embraced in the world's most famous vineyards or by the wooded Abetone which transforms into pistes for ski lovers in the winter. There are miles and miles of pathways for trekking, mountain biking, skiing, but also for absolute rest. From southern Tuscany you can also easily visit Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy. Tourism is growing because of the unfamiliar harmony between nature & historic centres (the landscape is dotted with many picturesque medieval villages). Main places to visit: Perugia, Orvieto, Spoleto, Assisi, Todi, Gubbio but there are also many charming little towns and villages. The climate in Tuscany is very mild. The most beautiful season is May, September and October. So the main season to travel in Tuscany is spring, summer and autumn, especially because the landscape at that time of the year is very beautiful. Usually the summers in Tuscany are warm and without rain. Tuscany has 2 international airports, one near Pisa the other near Florence. At the airports car rentals available.
