Pros The views are simply amazing - the view from the main room and bedroom are even more beautiful than they appear on the website. This villa also has very good privacy, situated at the far end of the property. There are multiple different outdoor seating areas just for this villa, all with privacy and amazing views. Scorpione was also very spacious, it was a great place to relax!
Cons The property was advertised as having wifi, but we found the wifi signal to be unstable and difficult to log into. For several days we could not log in at all, and then we discovered that we were able to log in if we sat in one specific spot near the french doors, with both sets of doors open (the connection would drop when the doors closed). Even then, the connection would not hold for more than a couple of minutes. The shower was difficult to get warm water through - it would provide very hot water (too hot to bear), but when adjusted slightly colder, it would move to very cold, with nothing in between.
Local attractions Our highlight was a private chef meal at the villa provided by Il Fiasco. It was expensive, but having a great meal served on your own patio with the amazing views at Scorpione was a better experience than we found in any restaurants. It also helped that the weather was perfect that night!

Pros The position was perfect, with views to die for.
Cons Just a bit of a toil taking luggage from the car to the villa as the parking is some way off. We did however use the farm track to re-load at the end of our stay, which is right next to the villa garden.
Local attractions Central location makes it ideal for trips to all the towns, cities and sights of the region.

Pros Die Unterkunft entspricht voll und ganz den Angaben im Angebot. Die Bilder zeigen genau das, was einen dort erwartet: Eine sehr schöne, sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung mit kleinem Garten und Terrasse. Der Pool ist wunderbar . Die Anlage könnte sicher ein noch ein bisschen besser gepflegt werden und was sehr schön wäre, wenn diese Anlage einen Raum hätte, indem man sich treffen könnte und mit den freundlichen Nachbarn etwas trinken oder essen könnte... aber natürlich gibt es auch in den nächsten Orten genügend schöne Lokale
Cons vielleicht für Familien mit kleineren Kindern beachten: Montrfiorile liegt mitten im Chianti, d.h. man muss viele Kurven fahren und man ist sehr sehr langsam unterwegs... und für ältere Menschen, die kein Englisch können, wäre es sinnvoll die Beschreibungen der Geräte in der Wohnung und des Procedere beim Auschecken in mehreren Landessprachen anzubieten
Local attractions Leider wissen wir den Namen nicht mehr, aber unterhalb in Lecchi, mitten im Ort , gibt es ein sehr schönes und sehr gutes Restaurant. Das beste Eis gab es in Florenz, in einer kleinen Gasse hinter den Uffizien...

Pros Le cadre au milieu des vignobles et des bois. Superbe panorama. Très tranquille. La location correspond bien aux photos vues sur le site Internet. Bien situé géographiquement pour rayonner dans la région. Bon accueil, formalités simplifiées avec un responsable sur place parlant français et disponible pour régler les petits problèmes techniques (dans notre cas, il a fallu régler le programmateur du chauffage).
Cons La douche : variation de température, passant parfois du chaud au froid sans toucher à la robinetterie. Une douchette serait appréciable.
Local attractions Nous avons apprécié la "Bottega de Giovannino" à Radda et "Il Cantuccio" à Castellina. Visites des "must" de la Toscane : San Gimignano, Sienne, Voltera, Cortona, Arezzo... et toutes les petites villes, villages et églises du Chianti.

Local attractions We hebben veel "niets" gedaan, veel gelezen en relaxen! We zijn een dagje gaan golfen in Bagnaia, we hebben prachtige autotochten gemaakt en oa de plaatsen Radda en Greve bezocht, we hebben oa gegeten in Lecchi (Malborghetto), in Gaiole, in Cavriglia en in San Sano.

Pros Eigenlijk alles, heerlijk rustig, mooi uitgerust, prima ligging om dingen in de omgeving te bekijken.
Cons Als er 1 punt te noemen is dan zou het de ontvangst van NL-zenders op tv kunnen zijn. Het regende een paar avonden, en met alleen BVN als ontvangst is het dan karig. Alle Duitse kanalen heb je na verloop van tijd ook wel gezien. Maar een goed boek en avonden zonder regen zorgen er direct weer voor dat je dit vergeet.
Local attractions Siena, Radda, allerlei andere prachtige kleine dorpjes. En de touristentrekkers San Gimignano en Montepulciano. Kies voor lunch/diner vooral de wat kleinere niet zo toeristische plekken, hier is de taalbarriere wat groter maar geniet je des te meer.

Cons Probleme mit TV: kein Emfpang von ARD, ARTE deutsch; Handling kompliziert, z.B. ZDF ist Sender Nr. 673. Empfehlung: kein verstellen durch Gäste (Hotelmodus); Liste mit deutschen Sendern, englischen Sendern etc. Wohnzimmer hat keine Beleuchtung zum Lesen (Stehlampen), die Deckenlichter sind ungemütlich und geben kein punktuelles Licht; die Terrasse ist zu klein und hat keinen Sonnenschutz; Lösung Haus Pesce (nebenan) ideal; Dusche schlecht für Frauenhaare, die immer naß werden; kein Schlauch für gezieltes Duschen; Schwimmbad ist eiskalt (13°) und morgens erst ab 9:00 Uhr geöffnet; zu spät, um vor dem Frühstück schwimmen zu können;

What were the highlights of your stay?    Hearing a cuckoo call in the morning; dining at La Grotta de la Rana; walking through the vineyards; relatively easy access to the places we wanted to visit; the peace & quiet we luxuriated in after a day's sightseeing.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    A great location, with a spectacular view over the vineyards; well equipped; a bedspread & rug which enabled us to remove the duvet. This was invaluable, as we both find the duvets generally provided in rental accommodation far too hot, which means a poor night's sleep.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? Getting a flat tyre on the way out over the dirt road & finding a narrower spare tyre in the boot! Noone had told us that this is common practice in Europe.. we thought Hertz had made a mistake in fitting the spare.
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? Forewarn people about the practice of supplying inferior spare tyres in Europe. Internet access would've been useful e.g. to reserve seats on the flight out. There was very little for English speakers to watch on the TV apart from BBC World & Al Jazeera English, not that that was a great problem.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Chianti valley beautiful; the setting was wonderful. Just driving around & visiting the nearby villages / castles. Florence and Siena fantastic.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    We stayed in Scorpione. Better than expected - website pictures were good but we were pleasantly surprised with the space and the standard of furnishings.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Florence was further away thatn expected - with reasonalble traffic its still about 90 mins.
The weather !
Do you have any other comments? The apartment could really do with an oven or at least a grill or toaster / toasting machine. We didn't plan to eat in much, but cooking (especially breakfast / lunch) would have been a whole lot simpler with these facilities.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Trips to Siena, driving around enjoying the countryside.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Great! Clean, modern, all amenities provided for.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Yes, in the office there was a notice that there are scorpions! Luckily we did not see them.
On the first day one of the workmen closed off the area where the bbq and the wash line are put. That wasn't too clever...We had to undo some of his work in order to get to the washing line!
The owner (not the guests who arrived later in the week!) of the neighbouring apartment (we stayed in La Scorpione) used our frontyard to get to his property. That invaded our privacy somewhat.
Do you have any other comments? - In the bathroom of La Scorpione install shelves for putting things (shampoo, soap) on. We had to place ours on the floor.
- A bigger television perhaps? Though we did not come all the way to Tuscany to watch telly, due to bad weather we were at times forced to stay in.

- Overall; great location, great apartments. Would definately recommend.

Did you have any unpleasant surprises? No hot water for 14 hrs but it was resolved
Do you have any other comments? In today's society wireless internet is almost standard. They were in the process of installing wireless internet here but it was going to be for a fee. Many people will see this as a negative and will choose somewhere else with free wireless.
