Stay: September 2014
Pros Urtypische Toskana. Das Haus liegt wunderbar in einem Edelkastanienwald, hoch oben. Die Ruhe und die gute, frische Luft ist sehr gut. Die Betreuung durch Herrn Rosadi war überaus freundlich und zuvorkommend.
Cons Ungewohnt waren für uns die doch vielen und kleinen Fenster. Auch die Raumaufteilung ist für uns gewöhnungsbedürftig gewesen. Aber es ist uns ja klar, dass dies der Baustil im 16 Jhd. war.
Local attractions ich weiß die Namen nicht mehr, aber wir waren in sehr vielen Lokalen und Bars direkt im Monterchi und alle haben uns sehr gut gefallen. die Leute sind sehr freundlich und liebenwürdig. die Qualität der angebotenen Waren ist erstklassik.
