Pros le confort, le design de la maisonnette , le jardin juste devant permettant de prendre les repas, le cadre dasn un ensemble de charme avec verdure et bcp de soing
Cons le fait que les maisonnettes soient fortement imbriquées entre elles, les bruits de voisinage peuvent rapidement être important par exemple l'espace table extérieure de la maison voisine était juste devant l'une des chambres aussi si des gents restent tard le soir à table et discutent cela devient vite gênant pour les occupant de la chambre. Autre point est le fait qu'il faut amener ses coussins de chaise longue à la piscine, serait mieux qu'ils soient permanent à la piscine avec un peu plus de fauteuil car pas assez en comparaison du nombre d'appartement et d'occupants.
Local attractions Restaurant à Volpaia et Pizzeria sur la route entre Raddi and Castellina environ 5 km avant Castellina.

Pros Ons beviel, ondanks de warmte, de koelte van het huis en natuurlijk de geweldig uitziend appartement. Alhoewel de keuken klein was was alles aanwezig en hebben daar dan ook dankbaar gebruik van gemaakt. De lokatie en het hele appartementen complex is schitterent en we voelde ons helemaal in Italie. Onze favoriete bezigheid was een koele duik in het zeer goed onderhouden zwembad met heerlijk helder koel water.
Cons Er was niet veel aan te merken op het appartement, het enige waar we aan moesten wennen was de afwezigheid van beheerder of iets dergelijks maar was op zich niet echt een probleem.

Pros Bijna alles! Prachtige centrale locatie, mooi opgeknapt oud dorpje, heerlijk rustig, goede inrichting, ruim huisje voor 4 personen, heerlijke bedden met muggennetten , die zijn hard nodig om rustig te kunnen slapen. Mooi zwembad met ook een leuk kinderbadje. En de wifi
Cons Als ik dan echt iets moet opschrijven, dan zijn het de ligbedden bij het zwembad, waarop je snel een zere rug krijgt. Voor even snel opdrogen: prima
