Pros traumhafte Lage
schöne geräumige Ferienwohnung
super Pool
sehr nette Vermietung
Cons die Vermieterin hatte 5 Hunde, die manchmal ziemlich aufdringlich waren bzw. ihre Hundehaufen auf der Wiese und am Pool fallen lassen haben...man sollte in der Beschreibung der Unterkunft die Hundehaltung mit aufnehmen => es gibt auch Leute mit Hundehaarallergie...ansonsten alles BESTENS!!!!
Local attractions Montalcino => nette kleine romantische Stadt mit sehr guten Restaurants

Pros Fantastische ligging op een heuvel en heel rustig.
Kakelverse eitjes 's ochtends zo onder de kip vandaan.
Het appartement was uitstekend geschikt voor 6 volwassenen. Ieder had toch privacy.
De open haard was bijzonder sfeervol
Het uitzicht vanaf het zwembad was gewoon een droom.
Gastvrije eigenaresse.
Cons er waren wel erg veel honden (4 volwassen honden en 4 puppies), maar ze waren wel rustig en de puppies waren erg vertederend.

Pros Sehr nette Vermieter; toller Pool mit schönem Blick ins Tal, Schöne große Zimmer in ruhiger Lage; der Hauswein schmeckt sehr gut!
Cons etwas langer Weg von der Haputstraße über Schotter, da letztes Haus am Weg - dafür aber sehr ruhig und erholsam; Der Gemeinschaftsgrill könnte mal erneuert werden.
Local attractions Siena, Crete; alle Restaurants in der Nähe waren preiswert und empfehlenswert, wenn man auf luxuriöses Ambiente verzichten kann.

Pros Location was fabulous the views from the pool were outstanding and the owners were very nice helpful people
Cons Decor was a bit tired needed updating,lounge area was not very comfortable with cheap coverings on probably nice sofas and kitchen also needed attention

Pros Owners very friendly. The 7 year old in our family loved the animals and the play equipment, the 31 year old loved the nearby mountain biking and the rest of uod practice!s loved Buonconvento and surrounds - plenty to see and great food and wine. We were there for 3 weeks - very relaxing. Stefania helpfully allowed me to speak Italian with her - go
Cons Everything was fine for us. Others may like to know that you are directly living in the family compound so there are comings and goings (and family meals on the loggia).
Local attractions The abbey at Monteoliveto, Montalcino and Buonconvento itself (go to the museum about the sharecroppers). Restaurants we would recommend include the one at the abbey up the road, Il Griglio at Montalcino and the Via di Mezzardi on the main street in the medieval part of Buonconvento.
