Pros Die traumhafte Lage mitten in den Weinbergen ist traumhaft schoen. Dieabsolute Ruhe und der wunderschoene Garten haben uns sehr gut gefallen.
Local attractions San Gimignano, Siena,Monteriggioni und Pisa waren unsere Lieblingsorte, aber auch Panzano und Castellina sind total schoen.

Pros Die Lage in den Weinbergen, die Nähe zu den Städten, der erfrischende Pool und die Freundlichkeit des Vermieters, das Flair des Anwesens und der typischen toskanischen Einrichtung haben uns sehr gut gefallen. Außerdem war die Wohnung gut ausgestattet, es hat uns an nichts gefehlt.

Pros The location was beautiful. The house was very well equipped, especially the kitchen. With a good barbecue area and clean pool.

We had a fabulous time although the weather was not very good and did not have the opportunity to try the pool.
Cons The road leading to the property.
Local attractions Everywhere. We loved Volterro, Sienna, San Gaminianno and Ponzano. We ate locally in Ponzano, and Osteria alla Piazza, amongst a few and all were wonderful.

Pros Bis wir endlich dort waren, war es dann ein schöner Urlaub. Die Leute waren sehr nett. Der Pool war auch schön. Die Wohnung und die Betten waren gut. Wir waren sehr viel unterwegs und es ist eine sehr schöne Landschaft.
Cons Die Adresse hatte nicht gestimmt. Navi führte uns irgendwo hin. Man hat niemanden Tel. erreicht. Auch die Tel.Nr. in Deutschland bei Ihnen niemand. Bis sich der Eigentümer gemeldet hat, hat es fast zwei Std. gedauert. In Navico wusste niemand Bescheid wir hätten da nie hingefunden das ist so abseids. Es waren nur zwei Liegestühle vor Ort, wir waren aber vier Erwachsene. Die Anfahrt muss genauer beschrieben werden und die Straße dort hin hergerichtet werden sie ist in einem sehr schlecheten Zustand, da meint jeder das kann nicht stimmen (Adresse)
Local attractions Eine Pizzeria in San Castelina war sehr gut. Wir waren in: Siena, Florenz, Pisa, Lucca, Voltera, San Gimingano, Arezzo und noch einige weitere.

Pros Nous avons beaucoup aimé :
- le charme de la vieille batisse
- la piscine au milieu des vignes, des cyprès et des oliviers
- le calme
- le lieu, la superbe vue
- Typique des images que nous avions en tête de la Toscane !!
Cons - Le jardin avec coin barbecuing n'est pas au pied de l'appartement. Même s'il n'est pas loin, ce n'est pas du tout pratique quand on veut y manger et qu'il faut faire plein d'A/R à la cuisine de l'appartement à l'étage. Nous ne l'avons donc au final pas beaucoup utilisé. - Dans la même bâtisse, il y a d'autres appartements en location en RDC avec un petit jardin, ce sont plutôt ces appartements que je recommanderais.

Pros Alles. Es war wie im Film oder Traum. Das Haus war toll, der Pool sauber das drumherum war einfach klasse. Ruhe, die prädistiniert zum entspannen und erholen. Es hat einfach alles nach unserem Geschmack gepasst und Harmoniert. Es war urig und die einfachheit war , mit einem Wort, klasse. Wir schwärmen immer noch. Auch der Vermieter war super nett und zuvor kommend. Er hat uns selbst ,die unter den Autositz gerollt Tomatensoße, am letzten Tag noch gegeben und sich dafür entschuldigt. Dem Wünsch ich Gottes Segen.
Cons Na ja, die Zufahrt war ein Abenteuer, aber auch irgendwie gut. Das ist Toskana mit all ihren Reizen. Natur und Schönheit pur, trotz Hindernissen. Das einzige was wir nicht toll fanden in der Toskana, sind die Spritpreise. Alles andere kann man steuern, indem man halt einfach verzichtet.
Local attractions Siena als Stadt und dann der Markt, Radda mit kleinen schnuckeligen Pizzerien, San Gimignano ist für sich eine Reise Wert. Siena empfehle ich für alle Frauen und Mädels. Schuhe und Taschen wie im Paradies.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Visiting Pisa, Florence and Sienna.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    It was a very nice apartment. We did find it difficult to sit inside comfortably as there was a very small sofa in the kitchen.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? No
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? We loved Tuscany and would probably visit again. We were very impressed with the level of service you provided and would use your company again.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Die ganze Woche in Navico war ein Highlight. Die Umgebung ist einfach traumhaft schön. Jedes Dorf ist einen Ausflug wert. Besonders gefallen hat uns Siena. Nach jedem Ausflug wartete ein herrlich erfrischender Pool auf uns und ein Abend voller toskanischer Köstlichkeiten.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Gelsomino ist eine sehr schöne Ferienwohnung, in der es uns an nichts gefehlt hat. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt! Navico ist ein herrliches Grundstück, liebevoll gehegt und gepflegt. Der Pool ist wunderbar erfrischend. Von dort, wie auch vom herrlich ruhigen, lauschigen Liegeplatz und vom ganzen Grundstück konnten wir einen traumhaften Blick in die Umgebung genießen. Besser geht es nicht!
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Gelsomino hat uns nur positiv überrascht.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Wir haben noch eine weitere Woche in Capaniole verbracht. Bekommen wir dafür einen extra Fragebogen?
