Pros Zeer vriendelijke eigenaren, uiterst behulpzaam.
Heerlijk zwembad
Centrale ligging tov Lucca, Pisa, Florence en san gimignano
Local attractions Lucca, Pisa, san Gimignano. Allemaal mooie plaatsen. Lucca met name geschikt om te bezoeken met kleine kinderen. Aanrader om daar een fiets te huren en de stad te verkennen per fiets. Rondom en op stadsmuur zijn veel speelplaatsen waar je even kunt pauzeren en de kinderen zich kunnen vermaken.

Pros well decorated and lovely bedrooms. very well kept and clean swimming pool.
Cons the owners were very friendly and helpful.
Local attractions the directions are a bit confusing as it takes you to no entry. I recommend you print a good map when driving to the villa. the easiest way was to follow the main signs for Montipoli as the road bears left carry on straight ahead, go over the flyover, with the motor home car park on the left and the cemetry on the right then take the left hand turn and follow signs down to the camp site. go passed the camp site and galo is on the right hand side just as the road goes in to 1 way direction.

Pros Das Haus ist günstig gelegen, denn alle größeren Orte in der Toskana sind gut zu erreichen, u.U. auch mit dem Zug (Florenz). Wir haben uns lange nicht so wohl gefühlt, denn außerhalb des Ortes kann man am Pool wunderbar entspannen. Besonders hervorzuheben sind die Vermieter, die von Anfang an den Kontakt zum Gast herstellen und sich fortwährend auf angenehme Art nach dem Wohlbefinden erkundigen. Höhepunkte waren die Einladungen zum Familienessen, bei denen uns fernab der Restaurants das selbst zubereitete typische Essen der Toskana angeboten wurde. Es schmeckte fantastisch und wir fühlten uns sehr nett aufgenommen im Kreis der Familie - keine Selbstverständlichkeit. Daher auch hier noch einmal: GRAZIE MILLE!!!
Cons da jibt es nüscht zu meckern, wie der Berliner sagen würde!
Local attractions sehr zu empfehlen: Osteria La Tagliola auch San Miniato al Monte sollte man unbedingt einen Besuch abstatten

Pros Great, central location location, about 50 km. from all relevant sights in Tuscany - Sienna, Lucca, Florence, Pisa, San Gimigano, Chianti region, etc.
Plenty of space and apartment well equipped with all necessary household items.
Nice pool and garden + barbecue. Near the main road connecting Florence and Pisa, but far enough not to be noisy.
Best of all, very friendly but not intrusive owners who made us home made pizzas the last day which just confirmed a very pleasant stay.
Highly recommended!
Local attractions Local butcher hosts a restaurant during weekends. Book early and ask the owners for advice.

Pros The layout and location was excellent. The property was away from the road (a quiet lane) with plenty of room for parking and relaxing. The swimming pool is large, new and with plenty of room to relax around with views over the adjacent country side.

The owners in particular could not have been more helpful. Although they did not stay on site during the week they were always available for advice, help and suggestions for things to do and see. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble for them and they were "best friends" by the end of our stay!

All round, one of the best places we have stayed and we will certainly be returning very soon
Cons We liked everything
Local attractions We did not use any local restaurants due to travelling around Tuscany however Il Gallo is perfectly located for this with the main locations such as Lucca, Pisa, Siena, Florence all within an easy 50 mile drive (a car is recommended)

Pros Extremely well located within short journed from Pisa Galileo Galilei . Located within a few kilometres of railway station with easy access to Florence, Pisa , Luca etc. if required. Railway service also very good and regular.
Facilites provided at villa very good. Fine swimming pool with accompanying furniture to high standard " no wasps " . Not sure how the Giannini family manged that last bit regarding wasps !
This trip rapidly became one of our most enjoyable visits to Italy, principally through the hospitality shown to us by Laura Giannini her husband and parents who did everything possibly to make us welcome to the region and their property. The list of all their gestures of hospitality culminating in an invitation to dinner with other guests staying at Gallo would propably take longer than the 300 words permitted in this short review. A holiday that will shorten our Irish winter for sure. We all look forward to returning in the near future . Mille Mille gracie !!!
Cons Nothing ,
Local attractions Covered in summary !
