Pros le calme, la vue, le jardin privé avec ombre, le site où se trouve la piscine est fabuleux, les hirondelles qui viennent y boire, la gentillesse et la discrétion de l'accueil, l'équipement simple et néanmoins complet de la cuisine, l'ensemble de maisons duquel fait partie Ginestra est fort harmonieux...

Pros Das Haus ist sehr schön gelegen. Und durch die Nähe zu Siena sehr praktisch.
Wir waren während unseres Aufenthaltes die einzigen Gäste, sodass alles sehr ruhig und erholsam war.
Cons Die nicht passenden Steckdosen für Euro Stecker sind etwas unpraktisch. Selbst die vorhandenen Küchengeräte konnten nur mit Adapter benutzt werden. Daher unbedingt selbst Adapter und Mehrfachsteckdosenleiste mitbringen.
Local attractions Siena, Monterrigioni, Chiant, Crete.
