Stay: September 2014
Pros Grosszügiges Haus, Einrichtung wie Bilder, Möbel etc. waren sehr geschmacksvoll und edel und an die Umgebung angepasst. Ruhige Lage und phantastische Aussicht. Grosszügige Gartenanlage, Weinberg, Swimmingpool alles toll.
Cons Kücheneinrichtung: 1. ca 30 Trinkgläser aber nicht mal 4 Weingläser und keine Prosecco-Gläser 2. Dutzende von Pfannen. Aber vor allem die Bratpfannen waren teil unbrauchbar, abgenutzte, verkratzte Auflagen oder runde Böden. Die auf einem Glaskeramik nicht brauchbar waren. Allgemein: Leider ist man auf ein Auto angewiesen, obwohl Castellina so nahe liegt. Der Wanderweg ist eine rel. stark befahrene Autostrasse.
Local attractions Tolle Restaurants; In Castellina: Taverna Squarcialupi, Albergaccio die Gastellina, Osteria Chianetta. Locanda die Pietra cupa in San Donato Osteria die Fonteruttoli im selben Ort Geheimtipp: Il Pastello mitten im Wald zwischen Castellina und Poggibonsi.

Pros Anders als in der Beschreibung erwähnt, ist das Rauchen erlaubt und ein Toaster vorhanden.
Cons Es waren defekt: 1 Sessel in der Halle (Fuss abgebrochen) , Spülkasten der Toilette, Wasser läuft die ganze Nacht, Terrassenlicht defekt, Poollicht defekt, es wird nicht repariert, da man das Wasser ablassen müsste, d.h. abends gab es kaum Beleuchtung im Freien; der Geschirrspüler stank länger als eine Woche, bis er endlich repariert wurde. Vorher konnte er nicht benutzt werden. Die linke Platte des Ceranfeldes war durchgebrannt, auch waren einige Messer und Schneidebretter in desolatem Zustand.
Local attractions Pizzeria Fondaccio in Castellina Fondaccio dai Dottori in Castellna Ristorante Squarcialupi in Castellina

The property manager informs us that the toilet tank was fixed as soon as he was made aware. The outside light has been checked and is working. There is a light broken in the pool but this cannot be fixed until the end of the season when the water needs to be drained. A technician was called for the dishwasher once the property manager was made aware.

Pros un endroit de rêve dans un cadre idyllique
Cons L'entretien de la maison est très médiocre (fait de manière très superficielle). Le prix est trop élevé par rapport à la prestation proposée
Local attractions Visites et promenades. Sienne, Florence, la qualité des produits du terroir, les petits villages, l'accueil des commerçants (quels qu'ils soient)

Pros die Lage fanden wir sensationell
Cons im Inserat steht, dass ein Fernseher vorhanden ist. Leider wurde nicht erwähnt, dass Sportübertragungen nicht gesehen werden können, da die Übertragung verschlüsselt ist. Unsere Männer waren darüber gar nicht erfreut, da wir während der Fussball-WM dort waren. Dies müsste im Inserat unbedingt erwähnt werden.

Pros Quiet location, wonderful views, spacious accommodation, lovely pool ( but cold in May!), secure gated access and total privacy.
Cons Not quite as luxurious as expected more rustic than luxurious. No electric kettle! Inefficient heating ( towel radiators not working satisfactorily).
Local attractions Castellina in Chianti, San Gimignano, Greve in Chianti and Volterra in particular were delightful places to visit and explore. Restaurants in Castellina in Chianti; Rosticceria II Re Gallo and Sotto Le Volte were both fantastic, Antica Trattoria La Torre to be avoided at all costs... in my opinion not value for money.

The property manager has checked and the heating and towel radiators are working. There is a kettle but it was in the cupboard - many apologies.

The fireplace is decorative as in the description. There are no duvets but the blankets are normal. The owner did not charge for the heating that was used.
