A beautiful slice of tuscan beauty!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the Hydrenga apartment in mid august. from the moment we arrived we were welcomed by Paolo & Sara the owners and very enthusiastically by Mia and Petra the most delightful dogs! The apartment is very spacious, clean and has everything that you may need for a wonderful holiday. The views are spectacular and we enjoyed an apertif most evenings watching the sunset. Sara and Paolo were very helpful and recommended some fab days out for us. Their hospitality including a lovely supper and eggs from the chickens and the biggest tomatoes that i have seen were very gratefully received. Due to the heatwave at the time of our visit the pool was an added extra. As animal lovers we thought that the the owners animals are lovely and not at all intrusive - we miss the dogs very much especially Mia but dont tell Petra.. The only thing we would add to the apartment is a larger sofa.We look forward to returning in 2012 - its very peaceful and a wonderful location for a relaxing break - thanks again will forward you some of the photos that we are still dreaming over!

No spa - but a nice home for a family!

  • 5 of 5

If you're searching for a beautiful, secluded home, fit for a family vacation, where the kids can play around with the owners' dogs, jump in a small but nevertheless refreshing pool and stroll around the ground without fear, this is your place!

This ain't a spa, holiday ressort or agritourismo, it's simply the home of wonderful people, who like to share their very basic lifestyle with the guests.

Thus, you should seek the "enterntainment" yourself, if you really need some. We enjoyed the peace and tranquility there, with a small but well-sorted little supermarket in the nice town of Monterotondo Marittimo, just 1,5KM away.

In the holidays I like to cook for my family and tour to those places, I'd like to see, when I feel like it. For families, there's enough space to play, to rest, to enjoy the landscape, to do whatever you feel like, and the owners, who live in a house on the compound are very helpful and generous.

I'd like to travel there again - and my best wishes and thanks to Paolo and Sarah (sorry, it took me so long, to write it down. Back in town, busy again...)

Toskana pur!

  • 5 of 5

Bereits zum zweiten Mal haben wir mit unseren beiden Söhnen (zwei und vier Jahre alt) unseren Urlaub auf diesem idyllischen Anwesen verbracht – und in zwei wundervollen, erholsamen Wochen die herrliche Landschaft und italienische Gastfreundschaft genossen!

Was den Kindern hier geboten wird, findet man in anderen Ferienwohnungen nicht und kam bei unseren Beiden super an: ein riesiger, wunderschöner Garten (zur Straße hin abgeschlossen!) mit viel Platz zum Toben, Hühner, Hunde, Katzen und ein Pferd, die jederzeit in Absprache mit Paolo und Sara gefüttert werden durften, ein kleiner Pool,…

Das Meer ist zwar nicht direkt vor der Tür, in 45 Minuten Fahrtzeit (bis Populonia) aber gut erreichbar.

Sicherlich gibt es Ferienwohnungen mit mehr Komfort und weniger Insekten; wer Perfektion oder gar Luxus in Bezug auf Ausstattung und Zustand seines Feriendomizils erwartet, wird hier wahrscheinlich keinen entspannten Urlaub verbringen. Wer aber Freude an einem ursprünglichen und entspannten Lebensstil in der Natur abseits des Massentourismus hat, kann auf der Podere Bellavista wunderbar zur Ruhe kommen und seine Akkus aufladen.

Vielen Dank an die Gastgeber Sara und Paolo für die vielen Tipps und Hinweise zu Ausflügen und vor Allem für die Herzlichkeit, mit der Ihr Euren Gästen begegnet.

Toller Familienurlaub

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben hier zwei wirklich schöne Wochen verbracht. Wir d.h. mit unserem 6 Monate alten Sohn, meinen Eltern und unserer 13 Jahre alten Hündin. Nachdem wir (natürlich nachdem wir gebucht hatten;-)) die schlechte Bewertung hier lasen, waren wir auf alles gefasst und hatten Putzmittel und sogar Staubsauger dabei - dies war nicht nötig. Die Wohnung war sauber und auch in den Betten haben wir uns wohl gefühlt. Das es auf dem Land Fliegen gibt, ist wohl normal (Fliegenfallen würden wir nächstesmal mitbringen, die gab es nämlich nirgend zu kaufen). Auch andere Insekten können natürlich reinkommen, wenn man die Tür nicht verschlossen halten will. Alles normal und dafür lebt man hier wirklich absolut idyllisch, in Ruhe mit Hunden, Hühnern und dem wirklich lieben Pferd (das sich eher wie ein Hund benimmt). Was man zugeben muss: Das Haus könnte etwas besser ausgestattet sein. Wir hatten zum Beispiel nur einen Teelöffel. Und ein Schrank ist auch zu wenig für 4/5 Personen. Das Sofa dient eher der Optik und der TV ist winzig. Das ist aber nicht so schlimm, da dort sowieso nur italienisches Programm läuft;-). Die Gartenmöbel sind tatsächlich ziemlich alt und die Waschmaschine hatte auch schon bessere Zeiten - aber das ist alles nicht so schlimm. Man fühlt sich wohl und hier macht man keinen Luxusurlaub. Den Pool allerdings würde ich eher als Plantschbecken bezeichnen und das Foto ist sehr vorteilhaft aufgenommen. Ansonsten hat man aber wirklich so eine tolle Aussicht und wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder Urlaub im Haus Ortensia machen!
