Paradise in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 6 night stay at the converted barn. The apt was spacious, clean, and very welcoming. The grounds had lots of open space, a swimming pool, fishing lake, gated entrance, plus three hungry donkeys and a loving cat.

It was centrally located and we took day trips to Firenze, Siena, San G, Volterra, and Chianti. Grocery shopping was nearby in Poggibonsi, where prices were very reasonable.

The owner was very nice and even met us the first day on the road when we got lost driving to the apt. (It was our fault we got lost not his!). We saw Leandro several times during our stay, and also his father and father-inlaw....they were all putting finishing touches on the beautiful new pool.

The lower unit was lovely as well, and could be rented together for a great family retreat. We hope to return one day and stay here again.

Gorgeous Private Estate in the Country

  • 5 of 5

Nestled outside a quaint village in the heart of Tuscany, this peaceful property offers a slice of heaven. From the moment my wife and I entered the gate we appreciated the beauty and comfort of this special place. The house itself is built of stone. It has large wooden arched windows that swing open for a wonderful view of the opposing hillside where a new vineyard has been planted. The view of lush greenery is enchanting. The property has a private lake that is loaded with fish and a half dozen turtles that were about a foot in diameter. The fish gathered in throngs to get the bread crumbs we threw in the lake from the overlooking deck. The turtles were hard pressed to beat the fish to the bread, try as they might. We fed carrots to Lola, Natalie, and Stella—the three resident donkeys. They seemed good natured and healthy. We truly enjoyed our discussions with the Owner, Leandros. The house has two two-bedroom apartments, that are tastefully decorated. We had everything we needed to cook meals and live in comfort for the 10 days we stayed there. We loved the arched stone walls inside and the stone floors. There was a large wooden table to spread out books, breakfast, and brochures on. Our biggest regret was having all this room to spread out, but no children and grandchildren with us to enjoy it as well. Our goal is to bring our extended family to this lovely home and take over the whole house. We thoroughly enjoyed it and highly recommend it. It’s easy to fall in love with the beauty and serenity of this location. Thank you, Leandros, for sharing your home with us. We’ll be back.

Amazing jewel

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing property. This rustic beautiful home with all updated conveniences. Along with it's owners was worth the trip. We didn't want to leave. You must have a car for getting around to all the hilltop villages. The market Pam was a few miles down the road in poggibonsi. Don't forget to buy carrots and apples for the donkey's. The cat also enjoys sharing your evening snak by the pond. My only complaint is pillows. I prefer feather. We will definitely be coming back. I suggest walking down the street to Tenuta Torciano Winery call make a reservation for the Silver lunch its 25e lunch and wine. The entire family makes it such a fun afternoon.

Beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful apartment, stone floors, two bathrooms, two bedrooms, perfect for a small family or a couple. A minute from Ulignano, twenty from Poggabonsi and San Gimignano. Worth the stay. Leandros is friendly, honest, and helpful about everything.

Schönes Haus/Wohnung mit tollem Grundstück

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus wurde sehr liebevoll renoviert und umfasst je eine Wohnung im Erd- und Obergeschoss. Wir bewohnten die Wohnung "Timo" im Obergeschoss. Es ist alles vorhanden, was man für einen schönen Aufenthalt benötigt (Wasch- und Spülmaschine, etc.). Das Vorhandensein von zwei Bädern ist sehr angenehm und somit wäre die Wohnung optimal für eine Familie mit zwei Kindern. Das Grundstück ist sehr groß und bietet im Prinzip drei Plätze, an denen man sich aufhalten kann (jeweils mit Sonnenschutz und Terrassenfläche): Den Grillplatz, ein schöner Platz am See sowie den Poolbereich (neu). Die Wohnung im EG verfügt zudem über eine eigene Terrasse mit Grill. Für Kinder wäre das Grundstück sicher toll. Es gibt Esel, die man füttern und streicheln kann, einen Pool (1,40 tief) und den See mit Fischen und Schildkröten.

Das Haus kann man auch komplett anmieten. Dann ist es perfekt für zwei Familien oder auch acht Freunde, die gemeinsam Urlaub machen möchten. Ganz allein ist man jedoch nicht. Das Grundstück ist das Baby des Schwiegervaters Doriani. Er ist jeden Tag vor Ort, was meines Erachtens kein Problem ist, da er zum einen sehr nett ist und sich zum anderen auch in Bereiche des Grundstücks zurückzieht, die man selbst nicht nutzt.

Die Lage des Hauses eignet sich perfekt für Fahrten nach Florenz, Siena, Volterra und natürlich San Gimignano, das quasi um die Ecke ist. Große Supermärkte gibt es in Poggibonsi und Certaldo, einen Bäcker mit tollem, komplett selbstgemachtem Brot in Ulignano. Das Grundstück befindet sich im Tal und man hat einen schönen Blick auf die umgebenden Hügel. Auf eine Aussicht, wie man sie von Häusern in den Hügeln der Toskana oft kennt, muss man allerdings verzichten.

Wir hatten eine tolle Zeit und können das Haus/die Wohnung absolut empfehlen!

Molto bene!!

  • 5 of 5

I spent two wonderful weeks in the TIMO apartment - very comfortable, quiet and spotlessly clean! The owner is extremely helpful and accommodating. He and his wife have thought of everything from fantastically comfortable beds, well-equiped kitchen in like-new condition, mosquito screens on the windows, and WI-FI. The convenient location is ideal as a base for visiting the entire area - Siena, San Gimignano, Certaldo Alto, Firenze as well as Umbria (Perugia is only 1.5 hours by car). The nearest city is Poggibonsi - don't skip it - lovely historical centre; Barberino Val D'Elsa - wonderful restaurant Bustecca. I highly recommend this lovely apartment to anybody wishing to enjoy this area from a relaxing and convenient location.
