Pros A beautiful well equipped apartment in a beautiful rural location. Very neat & tidy. It was not busy due to the Italian holidays and the complex was quiet. Being able to relax and BBQ in the evenings was lovely. Swimming pool was large & clean and all other residents were very respectful.

Pros Grande piscine permettant de faire des longueurs
Chaises longues et parasols et arbres
Bon entretien global du lotissement
Jardin privarif
Pas de caution demandée
Machine à laver
Cons Maison très chaude sans ventilateur ni AC mobile Pas de store pour la terrasse donc difficile d'en profiter Pas de vue alors que le paysage est magnifique Maison très sombre, d'autant que du fait qu'il n'y ait pas de store ni de ventilateur, il faut fermer la maison pour tenter de conserver un peu de fraicheur Route d'accès non goudronnée contrairement à ce qui était mentionné Check in et surtout check out très nonchalant : la personne en charge s'est faite remplacer pour le check in par une personne qui parlait pas ou peu anglais. Elle n'est jamais venue au rdv fixé la veille pour le check out, sans prévenir. Nous sommes partie au bout de 30 min d'attente Un welcome basket serait appréciable Fer à repasser marchait très mal
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

14.03.2014
The owner is sorry to hear of the issues mentioned and would have been more than happy to have helped in anyway if they had been made aware. UPDATE There is now a fan in the apartment. It is still advisable to keep the windows closed to retain the coolness within. The 100 metres approach road is a very good unpaved road. The iron has been tested and is in full working order. The owner apologises for any confusion with the check in and check out.
