Typisch toskanischer Urlaub........traumhaft.....

  • 5 of 5

Wir, Regina, Michael und unsere zwei Töchter verbrachten einen wunderschönen Urlaub in dieser Ferienhausanlage. Die Lage des Hauses ist einfach optimal um alle Sehenswürdigkeiten, wie Pisa, Lucca oder andere schnell zu erreichen. Man wohnt im toskanischem Hinterland und fährt zur Meer nicht mehr als 25 Min., optimale Lage also. Im Dorf, welches durch den Berg runter, ca. 1 KM gut zu erreichen ist, gibt es drei Lokale. In einem davon kann man auch Kleinigkeiten wie Wurst, Käse, Brötchen, Wein etc. einkaufen.

Der allgemeine Zustand des Hauses ist top. Sehr gepflegt, sehr gut ausgestattet , es fehlte uns an nichts. Besonders der schöne Pool mit einem tollem Ausblick, hat es uns angetan .

Die Vermieter wohnen in nächster Nähe und sind äußerst bedacht, dass die Gäste zufrieden sind und ihren Urlaub genießen können. Sehr freundlich und trotzdem wird die nötige Distanz gehalten.

Alles in allem kann ich diese wunderschöne Anlage nur weiterempfehlen. Wir selbst sind Vermieter einer Ferienwohnung in Bayern, am Brombachsee im fränkischen Seenland, und glauben zu wissen, was Gästen wichtig ist. Hier wird jeder seinen Wünschen gerecht. Top Lage, super Sauber, sehr heimelig und gute Betreuung durch sehr nette Vermieter....wenn erwünscht. Gerne kommen wir mal wieder.

Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung in Meernähe

  • 5 of 5

Die Ferienwohnung ist sehr gut ausgestattet. Lässt keine Wünsche offen. Zu der Wohnung gehört eine uneinsehbare Terrasse wo es sich schön entspannen lässt. Ein hübscher, gut inszenierter Pool mit herrlicher Aussicht. WLAN ist auch am Pool nutzbar. Der Besitzer ist sehr nett und immer hilfsbereit.

Ferien in der Villa Ricetro

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben wunderschöne Ferien in der Villa Ricetro verbracht! Das Apartement Francesca 3 war mit allem eingerichtet, was man sich nur wünschen kann, um erholsame Ferien zu verbringen! Die gesamte Anlage war sehr liebevoll gestaltet und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Die "Herbergseltern" waren sehr herzlich und zuvorkommend und haben alles getan, damit man sich wohl fühlt! Vielen Dank! Wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen und können dieses Feriendomizil nur weiter empfehlen!

Impressive and friendly Toskany

  • 4 of 5

We were really impressed by the standard of the house. Beautiful design, warm atmosphere, very clean, equiped with all necessary every day stuff and what's no of a less importance - uncomplicated and friendly owners.

After every trip to the beautiful cities of Toskany it was nice to come back "home". The area is also family-friendly and our little girl (14months) enjoyed walking not only in the house but also in the garden. As we were in April the weather was still not that warm, so we couldnt try out the pool, but it looked very nice.

Thanks a lot for this great stay, we will definetly come back one day.

Die Toskana von ihrer schönsten Seite

  • 5 of 5

Wir (2 Kinder und 2 Erwachsene) bewohnten das Apartement 3. Alle unsere Erwartungen wurden übertroffen. Die Wohnungen wurden sehr individuell und mit viel Liebe zum Detail gestaltet, so dass wir uns von Anfang an wohl fühlten und uns gerne in der Wohnung aufhielten. Die Ausstattung der Wohnung, wie z. B. Geschirr, Besteck, Gläser oder Handtücher, war mehr als ausreichend vorhanden. Unser perönliches Highlight an dieser Wohnung war der separate und uneinsehbare Hinterhof, wo wir morgens gemütlich frühstücken und abends schön essen konnten.

Den Poolbereich empfanden wir als herrlich, so dass wir hier mehr Zeit verbrachten, als ursprünglich gewollt. Die Aussicht von hier war einfach toll. Überhaupt war das gesamte Anwesen sehr schön und gepflegt. Mir kam es so vor, wie wenn alle Gäste ein Dauergrinsen im Gesicht trugen, weil sie sich einfach wohl fühlten.

Alle Fotos entsprechen der Realität, nur, dass es eben in Wirklichkeit noch schöner ist.

Um die Vielfalt der Toskana zu erkunden, war die Ferienwohnung für unsere Ausflüge der optimale Ausgangspunkt. Für uns als Familie war die Lage perfekt, da die Entfernung zum Meer/Strand sehr gering war. Auch kam jeder mit seinen Bedürfnissen auf seine Kosten, da sowohl das Kultur- als auch das Freizeitprogramm (Baden) abwechselnd bedient werden konnte.

Die Gastgeber, kümmerten sich wundervoll und unaufdringlich um die Anliegen ihrer Gäste. Hier haben wir das Wort Gastfreundschaft neu erfahren.

Vielen herzlichen Dank!
