Glicine is a corner villa on two floors, in the main building of the hamlet Le Rocche di Valiano. This pretty Tuscan hamlet consists of 9 villas and the owner's property.

Outside the villa is pretty garden which wraps around the two sides of the Tuscan villa Glicine. In the garden is a table with six chairs which is shaded by a large umbrella. From here there are wonderful views of the Chianti hills covered in vineyards and olive groves.
Inside the villa is a large open plan room which has plenty of light provided by the two wood and glass doors that lead into the garden. In one corner of the rooms is an armchair that can become a single sofabed. This spacious living room is furnished with a simple sofa for two and a second more comfortable sofa also for two people.

Light is provided by a small door into the central courtyard. To one side is a bathroom with shower.
Travertine stairs lead to the first floor where there is the sleeping area. To the right at the top of the stairs is a bright room with a lovely warm atmosphere due to the red colours used that match the terracotta tiles of the floor and ceiling.

Pros Die Lage ist fantastisch, die Anlage selbst macht einen guten Eindruck, der Pool sehr groß, die Wohnung funktionell und nett eingerichtet, die Größe der Wohnung ist optimal, der Bereich vor der Wohnung sehr gemütlich. W-LAN funktioniert problemlos.
Cons Die Anlage scheint nicht optimal betreut zu sein, einiges wirkt sehr vernachlässigt (z.B. nur mehr die Hälfte der Sonnenschirme benützbarn die sind aber schmutzig), Kleinigkeiten funktionieren nicht (z.B. Geschirrspüler fehlt der Knopf für Programmeinstellung, man muss minutenlang am Schrauben drehen oder die Glühlampe im Aussenbereich funtioniert nur wann sie gerade will). Auch ist die Wohnung zur Nachbarwohnung hin sehr hellhörig, zum Glück nur für 2 Tage besetzt, länger wäre problematisch geworden. Insgesamt ein wenig schade, es sind zwar nur einige Punkte, die trüben aber das sehr gute Gesamtbild doch ziemlich. Die Empfehlung daher nur mit starken Einschränkungen, für die Zukunft wäre etwas mehr Ordnung und Betreuung notwendig.
Local attractions La Taverna di Vagliagli, die Osteria von Fonterutoli. Weingüter Dievole, Fonterutoli und Catello di Volpaia. Unbedingt die Nähe zu Siena, Radda und Castelline nutzen, positive Überrachung ist der mittelalterliche Stadtkern von Colle di Val D'Elsa

Pros Das Haus Glicine in der kleinen, sehr gepflegten Anlage Le Rocche di Valiano ist sehr empfehlenswert. Die Lage ist fantastisch. Das Haus ist für 4 Personen sehr gut ausgestattet. Der Pool liegt fantastisch und ist für ein Ferienhaus groß. Die Anlage mit 7 Wohnungen/Häusern ist gerade richtig von der Größe, man ist nicht einsam, aber für sich. Siena liegt 25min entfernt. Man ist in den Hügeln des Chianti, nah an Siena, aber nicht so nah, dass es sich nach Vorort anfühlt.
Cons alles prima!
Local attractions Siena!!!! Monteriggioni und das gesamte Chiantigebiet

Pros Die Lage und das Anwesend sind sehr ansprechend. Alles entspricht der Beschreibung. Die Ruhe und der Entspannungsfaktor sind super und trotzdem ist man gut erreichbar (guter Handyempfang und WLAN).
Cons Hin und wieder schankt das WLAN. Die Kurveneinfahrt zu den Parkplätzen sollte repaiert werden.
