Coccinella is a lovely, Tuscan, stone cottage only 1 km from the village San Pancrazio, near Bucine. It is a small, tastefully furnished cottage on two floors, with a pretty little garden around it. From the garden there are views of the nearby village.

In the garden down a short path there is the small pool. It is an above ground, good quality, prefabricated pool. Next to it are a couple of sun-beds. There is a lovely view of the village on the hill on the other side of the neighbouring olive grove.
On entering the cottage from the front door there are the stairs to the first floor and bedroom. Immediately to the left is a comfortable lounge furnished with a triple sofa. In one corner is a closed fireplace, ideal for the cooler spring or autumn evenings. The room is nicely renovated in typical Tuscan villa style with terracotta floors and the ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles.
Passing under a terracotta arch there is access to the small but well equipped kitchen. In the center of this room is a painted wooden table for dining indoors. To one side is the stone kitchen unit, which comprised of a traditional Tuscan stone sink with brass taps, two electric hobs and a small oven. The room is completed by a fridge with tiny freezer compartment and a sideboard.
To one side of the kitchen is a small corridor off which there is a bathroom with shower. In the corridor there is also a washing machine. To the other side of the room are double doors which lead onto the covered terrace where there is a table and chairs for dining outdoors and a large stone barbeque.
On the first floor is the bedroom. This floor is entirely open plan with the large double bed on one side. A unit composed of a bookshelf and cupboard separates the sleeping area from a small sitting area which has two armchairs and a TV. The floor is completed by a bathroom with shower.


Passing directly in front of the cottage is a small country road, therefore the occasional passing car can be hear and seen from the front. The pool and garden area is to the back of Coccinella.

Pros Het mooie huisje en de rust dat we er hadden.
En van de weg hadden we zeker geen last het is op beide handen te tellen hoeveel auto's of vrachtwagens voorbij reden. We hadden het daar zo goed dat we geen enkele keer weggeweest zijn gewoon boodschappen gedaan en dan lekker BBQ gedaan.
Gewoonweg super vakantie gehad voor mensen die van rust en van de natuur houden.

Pros Nice owners. cute cottage.
Cons Location-told it was a mile to the nearest town---but it was up a very steep hill. No view, no grass --just weeds. No TV. The description said a fireplace was available-firewood extra. Told her that we were cold. She offered me a sweater. We are used to certain things when renting a housekeeping place. Hand and face soap, TP and cleanings. No cleanings. If we had stayed one week she would have had to clean for the next guest. We were there for three and we got no cleaning. Lots of spiderwebs. Scatter rugs everywhere. Very dangerous on tile floors.

Pros First of all, the landlady Patrizia and her mother Anna who welcomed us just as we were old friends. Besides that, the house was very, very clean, with a bright new wash machine which was good since we had been on the road from Norway to Tuscany for several days. The house was also practically furnised, and in the bedroom a nice fan over the bed. We appreciated two bathrooms, and not at least the nice grill on the terrace which we used mostly every evening. Not to forget the nice swimming pool and for me, I enjoyed picking sweet plums from the trees in the garden.
Cons To be bit of the hourseflies, but that had nothing to do with the house.
Local attractions There are several restaurants in the area, but we enjoy better cooking and grilling ourselves at the house. There is a small "Alimentary" in the village near by, and they sell most of what you need of food and household. In Montevachi, appr 15 km from the house, you'll find all you need from the Co-OP Ipermarket.

Pros In Coccinella gibt es einen sehr schönen Garten. Die Grill- und Feuerstelle ist liegt direkt an der überdachten Terasse und ist einfach herrlich für einen ruhigen Abend. Das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und man fühlt sich schnell zu Hause.
Cons Leider liegt das Haus direkt an einer Straße, an der auch LKWs vorbeifahren, was die Nachtruhe stört.

Pros Loved the pool, the location, the decor of the house, the surrounding area. I especially loved picking plums off the trees while I was in the pool. Heaven!
Cons Just the insects but they are fine if you wear repellent.
Local attractions The drive from Coccinella to San Gimignano was truly breathtaking. Also we enjoyed a delicious dinner at Il Poggio which is within walking distance.

Pros Countryside location. Peace and quiet. We loved sitting out on the patio having BBQs and using the pool. The owners were very nice and welcoming. The cottage was very clean and comfortable.
Cons We went in July/August so there mosquitos at night and insects such as wasps everywhere all the time when we wanted to sit outside. Once we wore appropriate clothes we didn't get bitten and still enjoyed our evenings outside.
Local attractions The location was good because we were able to drive to different parts of Tuscany everyday such as Siena, Cortona, Arezzo and various Chiani villages.

Pros It was a pleasure to meet the owners. We were made to feel very welcome from the start. The beautiful villa was idyllic. Very quiet and peaceful. Everything that we needed was made available to us. It was like a home from home, except for the beautiful Tuscan sunsets and the heat!

Cons The dreaded mosquitoes! (The owners were on hand with advice).
Local attractions Visit Arezzo, a lovely, historic city. Monte San Savino is not far away, and has lots of places to eat out.

Pros Coccinella (which means ladybird apparently!) is a great little place. Very private and quiet. Get's the sun all day and the pool is plenty big enough - we had a couple of lilos which were great to bob around on in the very hot sun. Lovely gardens and great patio for breakfast lunch and dinners. We would definitely recommend a stay here!
Local attractions Good location for Siena, Florence and the beautiful Tuscan countryside - espially in Chianti and also south towards Montalcino.

Pros A beautiful authentic villa, with a fabulous garden and pool.
Cons There is really nothing about Coccinella to dislike, however the insects can be a bit awesome as this is rural Tuscany at it's finest so they are to be expected. However the insects tend to be in the garden (not the house). There is an electric device in the bbq area that works well too. Overall this is a lovely authentic villa and it has everything you need for the perfect holiday.
Local attractions We went in to the Co-op Bucine for our supplies, or sometimes the larger one at Levine. Both are very good. We tended to BBQ a lot as the villa and gardens are so beautiful you don't want to leave. We went in to Arezzo which is a lovely city and has fabulous restaurants, there are little villages around too with places to eat, lots of lovely things to see. San Pancrazio is walking distance. There are also bicycles that you can hire at the villa. We also went in to Florence which is only a 30min drive away.
