Pros Die traumhafte Lage hat uns sehr gut gefallen, es ist genau so, wie die zahlreichen Bilder das vermuten lassen.
Der Fernblick ist phantastisch und lässt einen eins werden mit dieser wunderbaren Landschaft.
Die Räume sind sehr großzügig und komfortabel ausgestattet.
Auf dem Sofa im Wohnzimmer könnte durchaus eine dritte erwachsene Person bequem schlafen.
Cons Die Distanz zum Nachbar-Appartement (Terrasse) ist - wie schon in einer vorigen Rezension beschrieben - nicht ausreichend. Hier könnte durch Aufstellung einiger Pflanzkübel leicht Abhilfe geschaffen werden. Unsere Nachbarn waren jedoch sehr selten da, so dass das nicht weiter störte. Am Fuss des Weinberges befindet sich eine Anlage, in der an manchen Tagen laut gefeiert wurde. Vielleicht ist das aber nur im August so. Innerhalb des Appartements war es jedoch ruhig.
Local attractions Ausflugziele waren Siena, Monteriggioni, San Galgano und natürlich Castellina in Chianti, wo wir fast jeden Abend in der Pizzeria "Il Fondaccio" in der Fußgängerzone gegessen haben - eine unbedingte Empfehlung!

Pros Beautiful vistas, peace and quiet. Very relaxing. The villa itself was lovely. It was very convenient for Florence, Sience and all the hill towns we wanted to visit. Owners were very firendly
Its a very romantic place. I proposed whilst watching one of the stunning sunsets. We had a wonderful time
Cons Mosquitoes. We were bitten terribly despite having as much mosquito repellent as we could. Mosquito nets should be provided Horrible unmade road to gain access to the villa. Incredibly bumpy. We were bounced around as though in a washing machine And do not turn left out of the property as our sat nav suggested. We tried it once and the access road is extremely difficult and potentially dangerous We decided that to leave the property at night via the unmade road was too dangerous. This wasnt really a problem for us as we were out all day but it may well be for others The toilet seat was broken Front door was very difficult to close We didnt know that we could choose our food package. We should have been told what was already at the villa, so we ended up with lots of duplicates and items such as tea which we didn't need
Local attractions san gimignano, siena, florence, greve, orvieto (not close but worth the effort), pisa, monterigginio

Pros The views over the countryside, central location in Tuscany
Cons The road up to the accommodation is very uneven - not great in a small hire car
Local attractions San Gimignano is gorgeous as is Montalcino. Restaurants-wise, would strongly recommend Osteria di Fonterutoli and Trattoria "La Torre" in Castellina.

Pros Het uitzicht en de rust is heerlijk. Je kan lekker op je terras zitten of bij het zwembad.
Cons De handdoeken mogen wat ons betreft vaker gewisseld worden. 1 x per week is wel wat weinig.
Local attractions Florence ligt op ongeveer een uur rijden van het appartement en is een heerlijke stad om in rond te dwalen. Dat geldt ook voor Sienna, dit ligt op ongeveer 30 minuten rijden. Hier kan je ook leuk shoppen.

Pros Sehr schöne Anlage, tolle Lage, phantastischer Blick in die Landschaft bis hin nach San Gimignano an klaren Tagen. Netter Pool - ebenfalls mit tollem Ausblick.
Cons Auf den Fotos im Internet ist leider nicht ersichtlich, wie dicht die beiden Terrassen der Wohnungen Lago und Panorama zusammenliegen. Eine wirkliche Privatsphäre ist dadurch nicht gegeben.

Pros En plein coeur de la campagne, paysage magnifique, calme, ...
Cons Accès très difficile et non précisé dans l'annonce : nous avions une voiture + 1 remorque sur laquelle étaient 2 motos de route => nous avons eu du mal à arriver jusqu'à Cornino (route avec gravillons, très pentue sur une partie avec des virages très serrés). Nous avons du louer un garage à Castellina in Chianti pour loger nos motos, sinon nous n'aurions pas pu nous en servir. Ouf ! ... nous avons eu peur, mais la jeune fille de l'Office du Tourisme de Castellina a été très efficace et très gentille, elle nous a trouvé une solution. Vraiment merci à elle. Autre point : pas d'eau à partir du jeudi soir (ni pour la douche, ni pour la cuisine !!!!!). Pas très pratique, heureusement que nous partions le samedi matin.

Pros Extraordinary position.
Facilities - lovely accom. and swimming pool.
Relaxed, helpful owners.
Interesting area.
Cons My hire car was a little Fiat Panda (Ugh!) with small wheels. The road up to Lago was quite challenging.
Local attractions Castellina in Chianti Museum was excellent and led me on to the trail of the Etruscans in Volterra Museum and then on to the Archeology Museum in Florence during my final week in Italy. Fascinating. San Gimignano remains unspoilt despite the crowds. Made the mistake of going to Siena on a Sunday - very crowded with Italians who have for more right to be there than me!

What were the highlights of your holiday? The location and views from the property , the BBQ was good and we used it a number of nights even though there was a fully equiped kitchen . The owners were friendy and helpful and really contributed to the stay. There was a good walk from the property with views over the valley . Getting to Florence and Siena wasn't a problem and we visited a local Chianti wine festival , wines near the propoerty were also good
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Accomodation was great and the photos on the website didn't do it justice .
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? No
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Truely enjoyable time a delivered on what we expected from a stay in Tuscany

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Der ganze Urlaub war ein Highlight. Besonders hervorzuheben ist sicher der alltägliche Sonnenuntergang, den man von der Terrasse unserer Unterkunft beobachten kann.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Der Gesamteindruck ist gut. Im Vergleich zum Vorjahr (gleiche Unterkunft) scheint jedoch die Gartenpflege etwas reduziert worden zu sein.
Die Duschkabinentür müsste einmal grundgereinigt werden. Die Geschirrausstattung ist ausreichend, könnte aber etwas großzügiger ausfallen.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Die Zufahrt zur Anlage ist weiterhin in einem sehr schlechten Zustand. Die Bewältigung der S-Kurve auf den letzten 500 m ist nur nach Abschaltung des ESP-Systems halbwegs sicher zu bewältigen!

What were the highlights of your holiday? Views and sunsets from Lago terrace and sighseeing in Pienza, Siena, Lucca and San Gimignano.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Overall, the villa was excellent. It was clean, well equipped with stunning rural views and matched the description and photos on the website. The location was very good for sightseeing and the pool was much appreciated given the hot weather.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? The music from the restaurant complex at the bottom of the hill was an issue. On the Wednesday night of our stay it was totally unacceptable Very loud house music e.g. Prodigy's smack my b**** up went on until the early hours (1am) and disturbed our evening. This was not what we expected in a rural villa/location in Tuscany.
Do you have any other comments? Overall, we were very happy with the service and accommodation provided by To Tuscany and we would use the service again as well as recommending it to friends and family.
