Pros The location of "Le Vie Cave" can only be described as sensational...the views are spectacular and if you like walking, it is the place for you to improve your fitness!
Cons I can not say I disliked anything about Le Vie Cave, it has been an experience that the five of us will not forget......from temperatures of 30 in September to the most spectacular thunder storms that lit up the panoramic views after midnight.
Local attractions La Foresteria Restaurant that is at the highest point above Le Vie Cave is an architecturally beautiful building/restaurant/and splendid meal that must not be missed (but best saved until your walking is at its best)!! You can of course drive!!! Wineries and olive groves in abundance all around....great for an afternoons sampling !

Pros Le confort et l'espace de la maison. Le panorama.
Le jardin.
Cons Pour ce type de maison, la piscine mériterait d'être légèrement plus grande. Le manque de rangement pour les provisions dans la cuisine.

Pros Schöne Lage alleinstehend Die Kinder konnten toben und spielen.

Nicht weit entfernt ein guter Metzger Macelleria di Giacomo (Via della Repubblica 372) und einen guten Bäcker Gentili (Via Cavour 74). Kleiner Supermarkt in Monsummano Terme. Coop Via Biscolla 48, MASSA E COZZILE (Pistoia) (Supermarkt mit kleiner Galeria 10 Minuten Autofahrt). Das Haus ist super ausgestattet, vor allem die Küche. Wir haben gegrillt, Pizza und Panzarotti gebacken, Bruscetta und Tomaten mit Mozeralla als Snack nachmittags auf der Terrasse gegessen. Bis auf zwei Essen im Wohnzimmer haben wir ausschliesslich auf der Terrasse gegessen. Die Schlafzimmer mit eigenem Bad sind sehr komfortabel. Das Schwimmbad liegt auf einer kleinen Anhöhe und wurde viel genutzt. Der Garten verfügt über mehrere Feigenbäume. Ausserdem sind Rosmarin Thymian und Salbei im Garten angepflanzt. Der Garten ist sauber und gepflegt.
Cons Internet war mehr als langsam und nur in einem Zimmer war begrenzter Satellitenempfang. Hat jedoch nicht so sehr gestört. Wir haben Karten gespielt und auch die Stereoanlage war oft in Betrieb. Einige Möbel des Aussenbereiches können erneut werden. Uns hat ein Gästebuch gefällt in dem man seine Eindrücke hinterlassen kann.
Local attractions Lucca, Florenz, Pisa waren ein Muss (alle Ziele innerhalb einer halben Stunde zu erreichen). Ausserdem waren wir in San Gimignano beim Weltmeister des Speiseeis Gelateria Dondoli und haben die Aussicht vom Torre Grossa genossen. im Zuge dieses Ausflugen sind wir abends in Siena eingekehrt und haben doch zu Abend gegessen in der Pizzeria 4 Cantoni. Leckere Pizza und Nudelgericht. Auch das Dessert war super! Zu empfehlen. Wir waren mit den Kinder (Geburtstaggeschenk) im Freizeitpark Cavallino Matto in Castagneto Carducci und sind abends noch an der Marina de Castagnetto (gebührenfrei und für Kinder super geeignet)!

Pros Der Ausblick ist wunderschön. Die Innenausstattung ist sehr geschmackvoll. Die Lage für Ausflüge sehr gut.
Cons Internetzugriff war nicht möglich, da der Mobilfunk-Vertag abgelaufen war. Sat-TV nur im Hauptschlafzimmer. Garten sehr ungepflegt (vor allem beim Pool kein Rasen vorhanden).
Local attractions Lucca und Pisa sind sehr sehenswert. Aber auch Ausflüge ins Chianti sind zeitlich sehr gut machbar und unbedingt empfehlenswert. Wer eine malerische Küstenlandschaft sucht findet diese nördlich von La Spezia.

The owner apologies for the break in internet service - there was an issue for one day but it is now fully working. The TV has been checked and is also working.

Pros Aufgrund der Lage auf einem Berg bietet das Hauses eine traumhaft schöne Aussicht. Die drei Zimmer haben jeweils ein eigenes Bad und sind ausreichend groß. Eines der Zimmer ist über einen separten Eingang zugänglich. Das Haus ist sehr ansprechend eingerichtet und bietet in der Gartenanlage viele Möglichekeiten zum entspannen.
Cons Aufgrund der Lage im Berg ist eine Auto unbedingt erforderlich.
Local attractions Sehr zu empfehlen ist das Restaurant Sottogrotta am Marktplatz in Monsumano Therme (Piazza Giusti 93). Gutes Essen und freundliche Gastgeber. Monsumano Therme ist von der Lage perfekt für Ausflüge - Lucca und ein Tag am Meer in Viaregio. Eine absolut empfehlenswerte Fahrt, wenn auch etwas weiter, ist Siena. Diesen Ausflug unbedingt mit einer Besichtigung von San Gimignano verbinden!
