Pros The owners of Il Bacchino try very hard to please their guests. The kitchen is fully equipped. The private garden is fantastic!!! Superb views, comfortable beds and several places in the garden where you can sit.
Cons It’s true that the kitchen, the only space in the house where you can sit, has no sofa. On the other hand, when you have a well-furnished garden, with many relaxing chairs, you don’t need one.
Local attractions Many things to do, beautiful little towns, wine tastings and good restaurants.

Pros L'espace piscine et le jardin sont de très bonne qualité, un espace agréable et très bien entretenu pour se détendre (le must de la location)
Cons la maison a un confort limité, très sombre et la vaisselle est très simple partiellement en plastique. sans l'espace piscine cette location n'aurait pas un grand intérêt. il n'y a aucun commerce a proximité, pas de marché local, pas grand chose à moins de 30 km. Les petites supérette de Radha restent limitées et de qualité moyenne.
Local attractions Nous n'avons pas particulièrement apprécié la qualité des restaurants que nous avons trouvés chers pour des plats de pattes et pizza dans des cartes relativement identiques a chaque fois. UN peu déçu sur ce point alors que nous pensions plutôt bien manger.

Pros Verwaltereheleute sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Jederzeit zu einer Auskunft bereit. Zu unseren Kindern sehr offen und lieb. Schöner und ordentlicher Gartenbereich. Ruhig. Der Pool war unseren Erwartungen angemessen.
Cons Es war zwar gar kein Problem, aber in der Beschreibung wurde das Ferienhaus mit eigenem Pool angeboten. Wir gingen davon aus, dass er zur alleinigen Nutzung zur Verfügung steht, dem war aber nicht so. Es war ein gemeinsamer Pool für das Anwesen. Der Pool wurde von einer weiteren Familie mitbenutzt.
Local attractions Radda (mehrere gute Restaurants) Lecci Sienna In der Nähe gibt es auch die Möglichkeit zum Reiten
