Beautiful retreat with the essence of Tuscany at your doorstep.
This lovely cottage is remote enough to feel you are enveloped in the Tuscan hills, but the beautiful village of Belforte is just a stones throw away by car. The property is well cared for and the owner was very friendly and welcoming without being intrusive in any way. His English was excellent and he very clearly loves, and is knowledgable about his local area. Our two boys (10 and 12) especially loved the pool.
We visited the local restaurant in Belforte both to eat in and for takeaway pizzas. The food was pleasant enough and the views were beautiful.
Best bits : Views, locals, Privacy and Pool
Worst: Easy drive but 30 mins from bigger supermarket ( basics available in Belforte/ Radicondoli - bread, ham, cheese, milk)
Very happy to know that you have spent a pleasant holiday in one of the most genuine areas of Tuscany!
It 's true that the supermarket is not right by the cottage, this should perhaps be seen not as a limitation but more as an opportunity to break, at least on vacation, the daily routine living a bit like the locals ...
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.
