LISA DE VINCI

  • 5 of 5

Nous sommes tous bien d'accord, le paradis est à Vinci !

Maman et moi allons y effectuer notre quatrième séjour, assurément ce ne sera pas le dernier...

Et je le confirme : la propreté, l'aménagement, l'accueil, la beauté et la quiétude des lieux, tout se conjugue pour un séjour parfait.

Mais ce qui a tout autant d'importance à nos yeux : le sourire et la gentillesse de Lisa. Non, je ne parle pas de Mona, ni de son sourire un peu fade, mais de "notre Lisa" qui nous a fait découvrir l'âme de la Toscane. Merci à elle.

Podere Zollaio

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in September 2008. It`s a very nice

spacy apartment which is located just outside Vinci. You have a

view of Vinci and its lovely castle and church. Vinci is within 10 minutes walking distance but you have no noice from the town apart from the church bells. The owners who indeed are very nice

make their own organic virgin olive oil which in our opinion is outstanding. They also make their own red/white wine which also

is excellent. We will definetly book this apartment again and it will

rather be sooner than later.

Unser Toskanatraum

  • 5 of 5

Das Weingehöft Podere Zollaio liegt auf einem Hügel gegenüber des alten Ortes Vinci. Hier erzeugt die Gastgeberin, die auch sehr gut deutsch spricht, mit Ihrer Famillie nach ökologischen Vorgaben einen guten Rot- und Weißwein sowie Olivenöl. Wir verbringen unseren Urlaub nun schon seit mehr als 8 Jahren an diesem Ort und geniesen immer wieder diesen herrlichen Ausblick auf Vinci, San Miniato und die angrenzenden Hügel der Toskana. Zur Verfügung stehen 4 liebevoll eingerichtete Wohnungen mit schattigen Außenplätzen bzw. Balkon und ein in einer Gartenanlage gestalteter Swimmingpool mit Jacuzzi. Die Ristoranti in Vinci sind fußläufig in 10-15 Minuten erreichbar. Die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten der Toskana liegen innerhalb einer Autostunde.

Der Traum von der Toskana hat sich hier für uns erfüllt.

Our ideal place in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Every year for over 10 years my friend and I have spent our holidays at "Podere Zollaio" in Vinci. We have also had many holidays with both our families in the large farmhouse "Casa Eden". We have always found the apartments and farmhouse clean and well maintained and exactly as described. Every holiday has come up to our expectations. The beautiful views, from the apartments, swimming pool etc., of Vinci and the surrounding Tuscan countryside, enhanced by Lisa's wonderful red and white wine and delicious olive-oil, make this our ideal place. We have visited many of the cities and towns mentioned in the brochure and found them well within a reasonable driving distance - many repeated trips to Florence, Lucca and S. Gimignano which are our favourites. We love strolling through the olive and vine groves down to Vinci, which has everything we need, including good restaurants and bars, everyone is very friendly, Lisa, Chiara and Ian do everything possible to make our holidays enjoyable. Great family, lovely place to relax and get away from it all. It is bliss.

Toskanafans aus Baden-Württemberg

  • 5 of 5

Ende April 2008 verbrachten wir eine Urlaubswoche im "Podere Zollaio". Unsere Ferienwohnung war "La Mansarde" mit einem prächtigen Ausblick auf Vinci und Umgebung bis nach San Gimignano. Die Ferienwohnung und die gesamte Anlage machten einen äußerst gepflegten Eindruck. Sehr angenehm war, dass bei der kühlen Witterung die Wohnung mit einem Klimagerät beheizt werden konnte und sich im Bad ein Heizlüfter befand (alles inklusive). Für Ausflüge in Städte wie Prato und Pistoia liegt die Anlage sehr günstig, Vinci ist bequem zu Fuß erreichbar. Die Besitzerin spricht perfekt deutsch und verströmt eine natürliche Freundlichkeit und Zuvorkommenheit, nichts ist "aufgesetzt". Wir haben fest vor, im "La Mansarda" wieder einen Urlaub zu verbringen und können die Anlage nur weiterempfehlen.

unser zweites Zuhause

  • 5 of 5

seit neun Jahren besuchen wir einmal jährlich Podere Zollaio. Dieses Gut inmitten von Oliven-und Weingärten ist unser zweites zu Hause geworden.Hier wird nicht nur ein qualitativ hochwertiges Olivenöl produziert sondern auch Wein. Die Räumlichkeiten sind sauber und gut ausgestattet.Die Poolanlage top, das Wasser hervorragend.Die Wirtin spricht fließend deutsch und hat auch für die verrücktesten Wünsche der Gäste stets ein offenes Ohr. Am Abend bietet das Gut einen herrlichen Blick aus das sanft beleuchtete Vinci, am Morgen verzaubern einen die sanften Hügel der Toskana, die mehr und mehr durch die lichten Tauschleier sichtbar werden.

Vinci liegt sehr zentral für Tagesausflüge nach Florenz,Siena,Pisa Lucca usw.

Wir werden in Juni 2008 wieder dort sein.
