Pros Die Lage ist perfekt um sich die vielen schönen Städte der Toskana anzuschauen.
Die ganze Anlage ist sehr schön gestaltet.
Der Pool und seine Lage ist atemberaubend schön.
Es ist sehr ruhig und genau richtig, um die Seele baumeln zu lassen.
Es gab ARD und ZDF, sodass wir alle WM Spiele schauen konnten.
Die Küche und die Wohnung allgemein ist gut ausgestattet.
Cons Man kann vom Appartment aus nichts zu Fuß erreichen. Die nächsten Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind mit dem Auto 10-30 Minuten entfernt. Die Schotterstraße. Das Hotel auf dem Gelände ist noch nicht in Betrieb. Im Bad mangelt es an Abstellmöglichkeiten. Es gibt sehr viele Bienen, Wespen und Hornissen und sogar ein paar Schlangen. Naja, man ist eben in der Natur. Durch die Fliegengitter bleiben sie aber draußen.
Local attractions Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena, Grosseto und vieles mehr. Wir haben hauptsächlich auf Ausflügen in anderen Städte gegessen, aber in der Nähe gibt es das Restaurant von Alessandro, der die Schlüsselübergabe macht. Das ist gut, wenn man nicht weit fahren will. Außerdem das Tre Archi in Castel San Gimignano, wo man vor jedem Essen toll Öl verkosten kann. Und noch ein sehr gutes Restaurant, welches wir leider erst am letzten Abend ausprobiert haben und dessen Namen ich nicht mehr weiß. Es liegt ca 30 Minuten entfernt in Richtung Colle di Val d'Elsa und hat einen Tisch mit einer Weinflasche drauf vor der Einfahrt.

L'accueil est exceptionnel, merci beaucoup à Simone et à son mari pour toute la gentillesse et la dégustation du chianti. Notre séjour était tellement bien que l'on a envie d'y retourner! et toute la famille y a trouvé son compte. Merci encore Simone

parking souterrain très appréciable
Cons rien à redire !-
Local attractions - Volterra : ville très agréable avec son musée étrusque notamment - nous avons beaucoup aimé le restaurant "La Carabaccia"(cuisine à base de produits locaux) - San Gimignano : Ville touristique mais qui a su garder son caractère authentique - Délicieuses glaces - Sienne : on en rêve encore ...

Pros Es war einfach nur ein Traum. Die Wohnung ist sehr schön, sehr komfortabel und mit viel Platz ausgestattet. Alle Haushaltsgeräte wie z.B. Trockner, Waschmaschine, Mikrowelle, Spülmaschine usw. funktionierte einwandfrei. Der große Kühlschrank war wunderbar. Keine Probleme mit Elektrizität oder ähnlichem. Besonders möchten wir hervorheben, dass die Verwalterin Simone und ihr Mann ein ganz zauberhaftes Paar sind und uns während des gesamten Urlaubes besonders liebevoll und aufmerksam betreut haben. Wir haben richtig Freundschaft geschlossen. Keine Kaution oder Zählerablesen notwendig, man hat einander einfach vertraut. Wir werden mit Sicherheit unseren Toskanaurlaub jederzeit über To Toskana buchen, denn hier waren wir bisher immer sehr zufrieden. Wir können uns auch vorstellen, gerade diese Wohnung zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt wieder zu buchen.
Cons keinerlei Kritik - es war einfach nur phantastisch ! Für das etwas regnerische Wetter während unseres Urlaubes kann keiner etwas !
Local attractions Volterra, San Gimignano, Pisa, Florenz, Siena, Lucca, Monteriggioni. Wir sind nur einmal Essen gegangen aufgrund der Zöliakieerkrankung unseres Sohnes und zwar in Castelfiorentino. Dort waren wir im Restaurant: Osteria Da Carlo, gleich am Ortseingang rechts, für die glutenfreies Essen überhaupt kein Problem war. Sehr zuvorkommende Bedienung mit sehr guten Speisen (tolle Portionen) und Getränken und das auch noch zu annehmbaren Preisen !!!

Pros Ligging, zwembad, omgeving, rust
Cons Die gastvrouw was een beetje raar. Ze deed steeds tegenstrijdige verhalen. De elektriciteit op het complex deugt niet zodat de ijskast steeds uitviel en als je het ene apparaat aanzette, viel het andere uit. Daar hebben schijnbaar alle bewoners (kopers) al 5 jaar last van daar. Voor een weekje niet erg, maar ze had het beter even kunnen melden. Dan hadden wij niet op die ijskast e.d. hoeven "schelden". We zouden ook in het restaurant kunnen eten zei ze, maar dat bleek helemaal nooit open te zijn (vanwege problemen met de lectriciteit).
Local attractions We hebbeb gewoon alle bekende mooie plaatsjes bezocht in de buurt en lekker gegeten maar hoe die restaurants heten ??????
To Tuscany team comments for this review:

21.08.2012
The villas have 4KW of power which is usual for this type of villa in Tuscany, using the oven and iron simultaneously for example can cause the electric to trip/switch off. Fridges are normally defrosted before arrivals so when turned on and filled with food full cooling may take some hours.
