Pros le gite était parfaitement conforme au descriptif internet. La petite terrasse était charmante et le village splendide. Montefienali est en revanche un peu difficile à trouver : même à l'office de tourisme de gaiole, l'agent ne connaissait pas le village et a du regarder sur internet pour m'indiquer la direction. Le premier commerce est à au moins 20 mn de route ; il faut le savoir même si le calme du cillage vaut vraiement la peine.
Local attractions gaiole situé à 25 mn de route. L'éloignement du village a fait que nous sommes restées au gite le soir, profiter de notre terrasse.

Pros schönes Örtchen, schönes Appartment, tolles Bad, Pool (könnte öfter gereinigt werden), der Gasherd :-) gibt es bei uns selten, aber ich leibe Gasherde,
Cons die Ausstattung der Küche war sehr schlecht, die Pfanne war nicht zu gebrauchen und müsste dringend ersetzt werden, auch die Töpfe waren sehr zekrazt, es fehlen Steckeradappter und es steht nirgentwo das man solche mitbringen sollte, den Toster kann man so aber garnicht nutzen, ebenso die Kaffemaschine es gibt nur 2 deutsche programme und man kann den fernseher selber nicht neu programieren

Pros Idyllische lage zum ausspannen und erholen. Direkter Zugang zum Pool, Einrichtung des Hauses und insbesondere das moderne Bad.
Cons In der Vitrine steht eine Kaffeemaschine, an der das Kabel abgeschnitten ist! Die Lage ist sehr abgeschieden, nächste Einkaufsmöglichkeiten nur mit dem Auto (ca. 30 Minuten) erreichbar. Liegemöflichkeiten am Pool sind zwar ausreichend vorhanden, aber sehr eng gestellt und kaum im Schatten (Schirme wären toll) an der überdachten Terrasse laufen alle Bewohner auf dem weg zum Pool vorbei, dafür sitzt man abends herrlich ruhig und ungestört.

Pros Het huisje was erg keurig en schoon. Zeker van alle gemakken voorzien. Rustige omgeving, vriendelijke mensen.
Cons De ligging. Montefienali ligt echt bij a een half uur van het eerste echte grote dorp. We wisten dat het afgelegen was, maar niet zo...viel wat tegen...
Local attractions Siena is en blijft leuk! Ook arezzo en Lucca zijn keuke stadjes.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Lovely village in good location.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accommodation was lovely and had everything we needed. Was very clean.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? The road was very steep!! (although you had warned us in the info before hand!)
Do you have any other comments? Would recommend this as a holiday to friends and family. We had a lovely time, thank you
