Im August verbrachten wir eine Woche in diesem Landhaus. Genau wie es auf der Homepage beschrieben war, fanden wir es vor, äußerst gemütlich und mit jeglichem Komfort. Die Eigentümerfamilie war unheimlich besorgt, las uns jeden Wunsch von den Augen ab und sorgte dafür, dass wir einen wunderschönen Urlaub in der Toscana erleben durften. Wir können dieses Ferienhaus nur weiterempfehlen.
From the Etruscans 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. San Gimignano rises on a hill (334m high) dominating the Elsa Valley with its towers. The town increased in wealth and developed greatly during the Middle Ages thanks to the 'Via Francigena' the trading and pilgrim's route that crossed it. Such prosperity lead to the flourishing of works of art to adorn the churches and monasteries. The construction of the towers dates back to the 11th and 13th centuries.
