Pros The owner has informed us that they are replacing all mosquito nets and fixing new ones to all the windows ready for 2015. They have also taken measures to address the problems with the cleaning.

Pros Die Lage, die Landschaft, der familienfreundliche Wohn-Essbereich, die gut ausgestattete Küche. Die sehr hilfsbereiten und netten Vermieter.
Cons Der Hahnenschrei unter dem Schlafzimmer vor Sonnenaufgang. Die Mücken ganztags. Das zusätzliche Appartement klamm-feucht und mit Getier, da undichte Mückennetze

Pros Für unsere Gruppe von 12 Erwachsenen (incl.unserer erwachsenen Kinder) hat ei Fach alles gestimmt. Die Anzahl und Ausstattung der Zimmer, die ausreichend ausgestattete Küche für fröhliche gemeinsame Kochorgien und vor allem der Steinbackofen für selbst gemachte Pizza waren perfekt; man brauchte nicht essen gehen. Der große Esstisch lud stets zu gemütlichem Beisammensein und die große Wiese zum Chillen oder gemeinsamen Spielen. Die Fenstergitter an allen Schlafzimmern ließen die Fliegen draußen und an den frühmorgens krähenden Hahn haben wir uns auch irgendwann gewöhnt. Ich könnte ins unendliche Schwärmen kommen und würde dieses Haus immer wieder buchen, aber den Anlass (Silberhochzeit) feiert man ja nur einmal. Die freundlichen Begegnungen mit der Eigentümerin runden das Wohlfühlpaket ab. Nur empfehlenswert !!!!!!!
Cons Die Mücken ;)
Local attractions Restaurants kann ich nicht nennen, da wir lieber selber gekocht haben. Ausflüge haben wir sehr gerne nach San Gimigiano unternommen; hier auch gerne die kleinen Konzerte besucht. Nicht weit entfernt sind auch Voltera, Siena, Florenz und Pisa einen Tagesausflug wert. Unsere Kinder haben auch einen schönen Ausflug nach Venedig unternommen. Das Meer ist leider etwas weit, um häufiger dorthin zu fahren, aber trotzdem hatte es sich sehr gelohnt.

Pros Very roomy, facilities were excellent, location was great including the rural setting and the fantastic landscape. We used the buses from Tavernelle to go to Pisa and Florence with no hassles and 2 of the group travelled overnight to Bologna
Caterina and Anna prepared a totally indulgent meal for us.
We also used the pizza oven on 2 seperate occasions.
Cons A couple of minor hicups with the appliances and the wifi but these were attended to promptly by the owners.
Local attractions The best food of the 4 week trip was at the restuarant on top of the wall at Barberino val de Elsa. I can throughly recomend the wild boar pasta!

The owner has checked and there is no problem with any of the beds. The showers are all working well but if all used at the same time it does restrict the hot water.

Pros Die Ausgangslage für Ausflüge ist gut da die Schnellstraße gut zu erreichen ist.
Die Aussicht auf die Hügellandschaft ist sehr schön, der Pool ist sauber und gepflegt, das Wasser frisch. Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet, auch gibt es einen Grill und sogar einen Pizzaofen auf der Terrasse sodass
Cons Missfallen hat uns nichts. Wer auf absolute Ruhe aus ist den könnte vielleicht die Landwirtschaft stören. In unserer Urlaubswoche wurden die Felder rundherum bearbeitet und man hat den Traktor schon morgens deutlich gehört ebenso wie einen Hahn in der Nachbarschaft.
Local attractions Florenz, Greve , San Gimignano sind gut zu erreichen. Da das Haus küchentechnisch sehr gut ausgerüstet ist waren wir nur einmal essen in der Pizzeria in Barberino - die ist schon wegen der wunderschönen Aussicht zu empfehlen und Pizza und Pasta waren bei moderaten Preisen auch sehr gut.

Pros Sehr ruhige Lage, ideal für Familien mit Kindern, (wir waren 10 Erwachsene und 3 Kinder, eineinhalb bis 5 Jahre ), besonders wenn die Dependance mit gemietet wird, (das Babyphone reicht bis ins Haupthaus), schöner Garten und grosse Terasse.
Die Räume sind gut aufgeteilt und komfortabel eingerichtet, das bestellte Kinderbett und der Kindersessel waren prompt vorhanden, die Vermieter sind sehr sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Wir hatten auch die Köchin für einen Abend gebucht - es war ein genussreicher Abend, sehr gut gemacht von 2 Fachkräften die typisch toskanisch aufgekocht haben. Alles in allem ein wunderschöner Urlaub, wo glücklicherweise auch das Wetter meist gut war.
Wir können das Haus bis auf einen kleinen Mangel (siehe unten) sehr weiter empfehlen.
Cons Das einzige was zu bemängeln ist "die Reinigungsmannschaft" !!! Die Reinigung der Räumlichkeiten von toten Kleintieren (Ameisen etc.), besonders in der Dependance, wurde vor unserer Anreise nicht durchgeführt, vielleicht wurde auch die Erstreinigung für die neue Saison zu früh gemacht, wir hatten den Eindruck dass wir die ersten Gäste 2013 waren. Schade, wegen dieser Kleinigkeit ist die Bewertung "ausgezeichnet" geworden.
Local attractions Florenz, Siena, Castellina in Chianti, San Gimignano, Barberino Val d`Elsa. Restaurant Bustecca nur knappe 2 km von San Romolo entfernt - sehr gute und preiswerte toscanische Küche, sehr nette Bedieneung. Weingut Rocca delle Macie, ca. eine halbe Stunde - in der Nähe von Castellina.

Pros Die Lage, das Haus an und für sich, die Grösse des Hauses. Genügend Bäder, die ganze Einrichtung mit viel Geschmack! Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt. Auch Catherina war sehr zuvorkommend und erreichbar.
Cons Die fehlenden Kissen für die Gartenstühle. Das Studio war nicht bereit, es wurde davon ausgegangen, dass wir dies gar nicht benutzen. Die positiven Punkte überwiegen aber eindeutig.
Local attractions Endlos, von Siena über San Gimigniano, Volterra über Florenz bis Monterriogioni.....Essen waren wir überall auch in Barberino val d Elsa...

What were the highlights of your holiday? all was great, weather, scenery, company, accommodation.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    fabulous, nothing less than we expected.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? only our welcome pack we had ordered was not there when we arrived at 2am, so very thirsty by the following day
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? will definately recommend you to our friends, and if we come to italy again, we will be using you, without doubt.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Baden im eigenen privaten Pool mit herrlicher Aussicht, Ausflüge nach San Gimignano, Siena, usw.
Die Lage des Hauses - nicht weit vom nächsten Ort - trotzdem völlig ruhig und ungestört gelegen.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Das Haus war sehr geräumig und gemütlich, perfekt geeignet für 9-10 Personen. Liebevolle und zum Ambiente passende Einrichtung, schöner großer Garten und der Pool mit herrlicher Aussicht auf die Umgebung, große Terrasse, auf der sich die meisten gemeinsamen Aktivitäten abgespielt haben.
Kleiner Nachteil: Küche war nicht 100% sauber, Backrohr hat nicht funktioniert
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? wesentlich mehr Gelsen als erwartet!
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Gastgeber sind ausgesprochen nett und freundlich

Nearest town

Barberino Val d'Elsa, 2km away, is the nearest village, it is a small hamlet but there are shops there. There is another village, Tavernelle, which is 3km away where there are some restaurants and a supermarket. In the town Poggibonsi, 10km away, there is a large supermarket and wide selection of shops. An excellent restaurant that we recommend you try is La Fattoria, which is located just before Tavernelle
