Guestbook comments from the manager

My new wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon and I can honestly say that it was wonderful, so quiet and very relaxing. The views from the pool are amazing. The small town of Belforte has a very nice resturant with wonderful views over the hills and a very nice view of the sunset. We would recommend this villa to anyone.

Idylle pur

  • 5 of 5

Wenn Sie eine Unterkunft suchen, die Erholung pur verspricht, sind Sie hier richtig. Wir haben zu viert (zwei Kinder) eine wundervolle Zeit verbracht, die Betreuung war sehr freundlich, das Haus sehr sauber und gemütlich, der Pool genial, die Aussicht top - und man ist dabei völlig ungestört mitten in der Natur (inklusive quakender Frösche in der Nacht) und kann seine absolute Privatsphäre genießen. Die einzigen - im Vergleich zum Gesamtangebot recht kleinen - Mankos (zumindest Anfang Juli 2011): Zwei, drei große Sonnenschirme würden Pool und Terrasse noch gemütlicher machen, und auch eine Außendusche statt nur eines Schlauchs könnte nicht schaden.

In Summe absolut empfehlenswert und sein Geld wert!

The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennine Mountains to the North and East, the Apuan Alps on the north west and by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the West. From the Etruscan to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces. Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated.Siena is one of the most popular destinations for travellers to Tuscany. Siena is home to the famous horse race, the Palio, held in Siena's unusual central square. Belforte, a picturesque mediaeval village situated on an extremely panoramic hill at 550 m over the sea level.
