Pros La piscine, le jardin, l'endroit très calme, l'accueil des propriétaires. Tout était parfait!
Cons Les moustiques (tigrés) présents à l'extérieur (près de la piscine et dans le jardin), pour l'intérieur, tout est bien protégé par des moustiquaires aux fenêtres et à la porte du jardin - donc prévoir anti-moustique et produits piqûres !!!

Pros De ligging tov San Gimignano en Siena. Ook de Chianti route ligt er nauwelijks vandaan. Het zwembad is perfect onderhouden en groot met genoeg ligbedden. Het huisje bevatte eigenlijk alles wat we nodig hadden.
Een grote ommuurde tuin waar de kinderen niet weg kunnen. Het grote muskietennet op het terras is geweldig ivm de vele tijgermuggen die er rondvliegen!!
Keuken is goed uitgerust met oven en magnetron en genoeg keukengerei.
De eigenaar heeft overal aan gedacht, zoals een extra ijskast, 3 ventilatoren en een wasmachine.
We komen hier zeker nog eens terug!!!
Cons Helemaal niets!!!
Local attractions San Gimignano en Siena liggen op steenworp afstand, wat goed te doen is. Het centrum van Poggibonsi is 5 km verwijderd van Carfini en makkelijk te bereiken met de auto. Op dinsdag is er een grote weekmarkt met veel kleding kramen en een apart gedeelte met vis en groente. De Coop is groot en divers met veel verse artikelen zoals vis en vlees. Restaurant L'antica Griglia ligt op 300 mtr van het huis vandaan en heeft de lekkerste pizza's!!

Pros Es handelt sich um eine sehr schöne Ferienwohnung. Die Lage ist für die Erkundung der Toskana optimal.
Der Pool ist sehr groß und sauber. Das Umfeld des Pools ist durch eine Hecke von restlichen Hof abgegrenzt und gepflegt. Die Liegewiese ist ausreichend groß auch wenn die Bewohner der anderen Wohnungen/Häuser am Pool sind.
Der Vermieter ist sehr freundlich und spricht Englisch.
Cons Leider ist das Umfeld des Hauses etwas ungepflegt. Es handelt sich eben um einen "laufenden" landwirtschaftlichen Betrieb. Die Bilder zeigen des Haus nur von einer Seite. Tatsächlich schließen sich an den abgebildeten Teil zwei weitere etwa gleich große "Reihenhäuser" an, die privat genutzt werden. Dies stört zwar nicht, aber auch hier könnte das Umfeld etwas "aufgeräumter" wirken.
Local attractions Alle Städte und Dörfer der Toskana. Die Entfernungen sind so gering, dass sowohl Castellina, Monteregioni, San Gimignano und Siena schnell zu erreichen sind. Sehr gute Restaurants gab es in Castellina - 15 Minuten - Monteregioni - 30 Minuten - und und und ...

Pros Great location in beautiful peaceful countryside. Loved having the private garden as well as being able to use the swimming pool grounds, all of which were kept in very good presentation. Only 5-10 minutes drive from Poggibonsi Co-op supermarket so quite easy to get hold of groceries/essentials. Loved having the shutters on the windows - we were able to keep the bedroom dark making it much easier to have a bit of a luxury sleep-in some mornings!
Cons The kitchen knives were really blunt - very difficult to cut bread / meat etc.
Local attractions San Gimignano - beautiful walled town with lots of boutique shops and great icecream. Siena and Florence - great for wandering around, soaking up some culture / visiting stunning galleries and churches etc. Scenic drive around Chianti countryside - easily done in less than a day, plenty of lovely villages to stop in and plenty of places to buy some good wines and olive oil.

Local attractions San Gimigniano, Florenz, Siena. Pogibonsi kann man auch ruhig mal 1 Stündchen durchstreifen. Vom Bahnhof geht es stündlich nach Siena und Florenz mit dem Zug. Pizzeria La Strolla in ca 1 km Entfernung sehr lecker!

Casa ai Carfini
Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? 1. Die Toskana insgesamt in ihrem grünen frühlingsfarbenem Outfit, wie wir es uns gewünscht hatten. Unser letzter Aufenthalt im Juli/August 2003 hatte uns die Toskana vorwiegend gelb und braun präsentiert, was wir auch als sehr schön empfanden. 2. Städte wie Siena oder Montepulciano, die wir schon kannten aber immer wieder schön sind.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Angenehme typisch toskanische Optik außen und innen, ruhige Lage - bestens geeignet für erholsame Tage. Die Ausstattung hat uns sehr gefallen, war gepflegt und zweckmäßig. Sehr angenehm war, dass für jede Familie bzw. Mietpartei ein separates Bad zur Verfügung stand.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen?
1. Nicht zu allen Elektrogeräten waren die Stecker passend zum italienischen Steckdosenstandard. Der Verwalter hat uns abernoch am Abend des Anreisetages eine Verteilersteckdosenleiste zukommen lassen und das Problem war damit behoben! Vielleicht wäre ein entsprechender Hinweis zur Ausstattung auf der Homepage sinnvoll.
2. Stromausfall am Abreisetag - ich habe mich aber an den außerhalb des Hauses befindlichen Hausanschluss mit der Hauptsicherung erinnert und die Sicherung wieder eingeschaltet.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Ständig Utensilien von der Anzahl her prüfen/prüfen lassen. Es fehlte z.B. ein Teelöffel.
