A delightful rustic rural retreat.

  • 4 of 5

A delightful rural retreat with an excellent swimming pool that was well maintained. Mr and Mrs Martini were very helpful and supportive. The views down the valley from the pool were superb.........showing Tuscany at it's best. I do think it is an omission that there was no information about the access which is difficult as the accommodation is 800m from the road up a steep unmade road. The road is much better suited to a 4 wheel drive vehicle rather than an ordinary car. However we succeeded, with care, on all occasions to access the property without sustaining any damage to our hire car. The property is well positioned to access all areas of Tuscany between Firenze and Sienna.

Magnifique propriété

  • 5 of 5

Endroit idéal pour passer des vacances reposantes. La maison est confortable et est conforme aux photos. Dans le jardin on y trouve une grande piscine avec une vue splendide, un espace barbecue où il est bon de se retrouver pour déjeuner. Les propriétaires sont d'une grande gentillesse. À recommander !

Herziges, ruhiges Haus in toskanischen Hügeln

  • 5 of 5

Uns (eine 4-köpfige Familie und ein Ehepaar) hat der Aufenthalt sehr gut gefallen. Vor allem der gut unterhaltene Pool mit seiner schönen Aussicht ist ein Highlight. Das Anwesen ist gross und sehr ruhig gelegen (zu erreichen über eine nicht asphaltierte Strasse) und verfügt über eine gedeckte "Barbecue-Station" mit Grill, Pizzaofen und Esstisch. Das Haus ist nicht übermässig gross, aber authentisch und mit vielen kleinen Details versehen. Es deckt sich exakt mit den Angaben des Vermieters. Die Besitzer sind sehr zuvorkommend und nett. Vom Haus aus ist das relativ nahe gelegen, schöne Dorf San Donato gut zu erreichen, in dem man einkaufen und auch gut essen kann. Florenz und Siena sind in ca. 30-40 Minuten mit dem Auto erreichbar. Nur zu empfehlen!

good value for the money & nice owner

  • 4 of 5

The owner was Meeting us at the day of Arrival. He was friendly and open, although he can't speak German/English. He showed us everything in and around the house.

The property is beautifull! It's exactly what the pictures shows!

The house is not big. It's just enough for 5-6 People (3 sleeping rooms). The kitchen is good equipped with everything you could need. Washing Maschine is also avaliable!

Evrything was clean and well prepared (on the first view)

The selfmade wine from the owner is very tasty, but it seems it depends on the year it was made (2014 was the best one!) :-)

It was very cold in mid of May in tuskany, as we arrived at the house. So I asked for some Wood for the big oven in the living room. The owner was friendly and gave us burning Wood. (we had to pay it extra, but it wasn't expensive at all).

It was very romantiv to sit together in the living room at night, drinking good redwine and looking into the fire. The house is not build for cold temperatures, so we were freezing a bit as it was unusualy cold in tuskany for May.

I think you will be happy about it when you have +30° outside :-)

To the negative Points:

only 1 bathroom (we knew this before of course)

we get only 2 Tabs for the dishcleaner and only 2-3 rolls of toilet paper (1 week)

house smells burned Wood (due to the big oven in the living room)

it's up to a hill, so it could be colder up there

If you want to go to the next Supermarket/City with restaurants you have to drive 6km.

The "street" to the hoouse is a steep and Long gravelroad. I can't Image to do it with a motorhome/Caravan. We had to be very carefull with our VW T4 campervan.

Anyway, it was a good stay and we enjoyed the house and the wunderfull property!

If you look for peace and an undisturbed place. this house is absolutly perfect for you

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.
