Stay: August 2013
Pros La restauration du village est très réussit avec tout le confort et très joli, la piscine est bien.
Cons La baie vitrée à l'arrière est exposée plein sud et n'a pas de volet ou de store alors pour ne pas avoir trop chaud nous avons dû mettre des serviettes de toilette. Il manque des verres, des assiettes et des couverts ainsi qu'un épluche légume et des plats pour aller au four, une théière. Où il faut un lave vaisselle plus petit.
Local attractions la Bottega à Vlopaia excellent avec une superbe vue et sinon tous les restaurants sont bons et pas trop cher.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

29.08.2013
The owner has checked to find there is a full compliment of dining service of six and ample glasses and crockery, plates can be used in the microwave oven and the dishwasher is standard size. He will arrange a blind for the back window for the hotter months.
