Pros It is in a beautiful location, isolated and far from the madding crowds. The Chianti Hills are glorious, with a wide range of wild flowers and wild life. The outside space was well used in the morning and the evening.
The new TV was better than the one that was there before.
Cons Some of the furnishings and kitchen equipment could do with updating (sofa, fridge and dishwasher); a few more decent sized wine glasses would have been nice ;-)
Local attractions Castello di Meleto - tour and wine tasting; Castello di Brolio - the Osteria and wine tasting; driving around the Chianti Hills and visiting the towns of Gaiole, Radda & Castellina; Volpaia - for wine tasting and the Osteria (very nice food and great service); Siena - the Duomo and Baptistry are magnificent; further afield Montalcino - the Brunello and the tagliere (selection of meats & cheese) at the Enoteca Fortezza and the beautiful and peaceful Abbazia Monte Oliveto (including the drive through The Crete).

Pros Die Ruhe, der tolle Pool, die gut ausgestattete Küche
Cons Die schlechte, unübersichtliche Wegstrecke für unseren Motorrad-Anhänger. Wir haben die Motorräder dann beim nächten Weingut abgestellt.
Local attractions Die großen Städte sind sehr sehenswert aber total überlaufen. Wir haben unterwegs nur Kleinigkeiten gegessen, weil wir den Grill sehr genutzt haben. Das wetter war so schön, sodaß wir nur draußen gegessen haben

Pros le site magnifique. la maison belle demeure toscane.
très bien équipée.
Accueil très bon. merci à véronica
Cons malgré les ventilateurs, les chambres restent trop chaudes la nuit. fenêtres ouvertes les moustiques rentrent. moustiquaires mal posées.
Local attractions je recommande hors mis firenze (musée san marco, galerie pallatine,galerie della académia pour la statue de david !!) et sienne (la place du palio ), les visites campagnes toscane : volpaia, pieve di san leolino, azienda agricola san donatino (maison de léo ferré), arezzo, abbaye de san'antimo. Pise pour sa basilique et ses fonds baptismaux; voir la tour mais n'y monter pas (trop cher). Lucca. Le parc natuel de san miguele. Pas assez de place. la toscane c'est sublime.

Pros The hamlet is a lovely setting, surrounded by beautiful countryside. The buildings have been well restored and the borgo retains a sense of calm and peace.
Cons There were no mosquito nets on the windows - essential given the surroundings. The shutters were on the outside of the glass window which seemed pointless as you couldn't just close the shutters and allow for fresh air. The 'local information and guidnce' vailable in the house was fro a completely difficult location. This was very poor given it gave detailed directions to places. There were no restaurants or shops within walking distance. The pool couldn't be used after 9pm, this was very restricting given the intense heat
Local attractions Montepulciano The Chianti Sculpture poark

Pros Uns hat die Einrichtung und die Ausstattung sehr gefallen, auch die Terrassen zu verschiedenen Himmelsrichtungen ist ideal. Die Ruhe war unvorstellbar, der Pool ideal und auch fast alle anderen Gäste haben sich sehr angemessen und unauffällig eingefügt.
Cons Da uns nicht bewußt war, dass der Thermostat nicht nur für Heizung, sondern auch für Warmwasser nötig ist (er war abgestellt), hatten wir 2 Tage kaltes Wasser (weil wir auch viel unterwegs waren). Einmal war kompletter Stromausfall im Haus, was aber nach einem Telefonat schnell an der Hauptsicherung korrigiert werden konnte. Netzempfang war sehr schlecht, sodass das Telefonieren/sms Senden sich im Problemfall schwierig darstellte. In den Unterlagen (Mappe) im Haus, könnte das nächste Geschäft/der nächste Supermarkt in San Gusmè bzw. Castelnuovo erwähnt sein, nicht nur der auf der Hinfahrt im letzten Kreisel vor dem Ziel.
