Stay: September 2014
Pros Het ligt heel centraal in de Chianti. Het uitzicht vanuit het appartement is schitterend. De keuken is goed uitgerust en het appartement is schoon. De horren zijn goed wat een absolute noodzaak is gezien er heel veel insecten zijn (begin september).
Cons Er is geen goede zitbank in het appartement. Een zeer oude 1 1/2 zit die niet comfortabel is. Er zijn geen kussens voor de ligstoelen en de tuinstoelen. Bovendien is het jammer dat je in de tuin die bij het appartement hoort geen uitzicht hebt. Het is een kleine tuin met een tafeltje, vier stoelen en twee ligstoelen. Bij het zwembad mag je niet zitten terwijl het uitzicht daar prachtig is en ook vanuit andere tuinen is wel goed uitzicht. Toen wij er waren hadden we enorm veel last van insecten (horzels en muggen) waardoor buitenzitten sowieso erg onrustig was. De weg naar Gesomino is slecht en 2 km is dan een lang stuk om iedere keer te rijden.
Local attractions Veel leuke dorpjes in de buurt. Het pleintje in Panzano is erg leuk. De Enoteco die daar is schenkt goede wijn en een simpele pasta om te eten.

Pros Die Unterkunft war ein Traum und entsprach genau den Bildern aus dem Internet, was erfahrungsgemäß selten der Fall ist.
Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und in einem super Zustand. Der Vermieter sehr freundlich und total unkompliziert.
Cons Leider haben wir den Pool nicht so oft nutzen können, wie wir es gern getan hätten. Dies lag nicht am Pool selbst, dieser war phantastisch. Allerdings gab es so viele Bremsen, die sich auf einen gestürzt haben, sobald man den Pool betreten hat. Das ist sehr schade, aber wahrscheinlich nicht zu ändern.

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.
