l'arrivé était parfaitement géré par les collaborateurs du site to-toscane.fr!!
Cons malheureusement "une autoroute" de fourmis et des guêpes cramées dans une lampe en pleine cuisine tous les jours, mais bon, ça doit être difficile à éviter en campagne! si possible d'ajouter des protections d’insectes, ça serait parfait!

Pros Unglaublich niedliches Häuschen in wunderbarer Lage. Ein Traumaufenthalt für jedes Paar. Wir haben jeden Tag genossen und die "Schlossherren" waren sehr hilfsbereit und nett! Das Dörfchen Vertine mit Umgebung ist wie aus einem Mittelalterromen, wildromantisch!!!
Cons Das versprochene WLAN funktionierte nicht, sollte aber baldmöglichst installiert werden. Es wäre vielleicht nett, wenn wenigstens Pfeffer, Salz und Zucker als Grundvorräte in der Küche zu finden sind?
Local attractions Das Ristorante Malborghetto in Lecchi ist grandios!! Alle Restaurants die wir besuchten waren prima, aber das war bei weitem das beste, auch im Preis-Leistungsverhältnis!
