Pros We did not use the Steam room or Sauna, I did use the out door jacuzzi at midnight and watched the stars, which was magnificent! The pool was lovely and set in a sun trap for catching the rays, but with a shaded area if needed. The grounds were great, the owners relaxed and unobtrusive. The villa was cool in the daytime but heated if needed, everything was very good for a couple. Would definitely return.
Cons The lack of any kettle (gas or electric) and no coffee making stuff (a cafetiere should now be resident, as we left the one we bought!) otherwise the only minor comment would be that there was no "welcome pack" (most places we've stayed before had the basics and a basket of local produce) or basics like salt, so you'll need to buy everything. Maybe the cleaners are over zealous between guests? These are minor and would not detract from returning, just wish we knew before hand!
Local attractions There are plenty of vineyards to visit, worth a call ahead if you have specific ones to make sure they are open. In Gaiole itself is a small Co-op supermarket, a little deli shop (great) and a wine shop who has tables outside to enjoy his wines along with deli bits too (excellent), we ate once at "Il Pievano" a Michelin 3 fork which was wonderful, but best to go early rather than later as you don't want to be rushed! www.viamichelin.com has lots more. The village has some basic eateries too. Big supermarket means a trip to a big town, so 30minutes drive away.

Pros sehr nette umgebung, tolle lage, freundliche vermieter, sehr diskret,
sehr babyfreundlich
Cons "einlegerwohnung" recht dunkel, vermieter oberhalb teilweise gut hörbar (war ihnen aber sicher nicht bewusst) gasgeruch im schlafzimmer (vermieter meinten, sei kein gasgeruch) das mit dem gas war eher mühsam, wir mussten immer bei offenem fenster schlafen, war teilweise schon recht kalt. würde sestuccia trotzdem weiterempfehlen.
Local attractions waren schon oft in der toskana, immer wieder eine reise wert: siena, florenz, radda, greve, montalcino, montepulciano, .. und die vielen wunderschönen weingüter, und da unterhalb kein feld mehr ist, ich werde über to-toskana sicher wieder buchen!

Pros Ruhige Lage, typischer Toskanischer Stil, extravagante Ausstattung (Billard, Sauna, Dampfbad, Pool), freundlicher Vermieter, großflächige Anordnung und Gestaltung des Hauses und der Außenanlagen
Cons Es gab keine Beanstandungen
Local attractions Da das Ferienhaus zentral innerhalb der Toscana liegt, sind alle beliebten Ausflugsziele gut zu erreichen. Wer gut essen will, dem ist das Ristorante "Osteria alla Piazza" in der Nähe von Panzano zu empfehlen. Nicht ganz preiswert aber es lohnt sich wirklich.

What were the highlights of your stay?    Gorgeous private pool and garden.
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    The accomodation was excellent, in particular the owners brilliant pool. It was a shame my Italian wasn't good enough to converse with our excellent host Luciano and his family, however he made our stay as comfortable as possible and I would definitely recommend his lovely property.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us?
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service?

What were the highlights of your stay?    first time in Tuscany and loved it, we got engaged after a romantic marrage proposal in Florence by the Ponte Vecchio
50th birthday celebrations and fantastic food at cerullo
enjoyed our cooking lesson with Toscana Mia (booked from a link on your website)

What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    lovely standard of decor, spacious and beautiful facilities. good shower, whirlpool bath, firm bed, lovely homely kitchen, gorgeous quiet location and great views
nice swimming pool, sauna and a nice welcome from the owner who was warm and generous despite not speaking english. his daughter (who did speak english) and his family were kind and attentive to our needs / queries, particularly when the electrics failed one evening.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? mentioned the electrics failed (very quickly resolved); lights quite low wattage for a place with little natural light, but this was probably environmentally friendly and I bet in summer you'd be glad of the cool
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? delightful place, warm and generous owner, lovely location and great place for exploring the real tuscany

Quels ont été les point forts de vos vacances? Les prestations "loisirs" : billard américain, piscine, jacuzzi, sauna, hammam

Quelle est votre impression générale concernant l'hébergement? Un cadre plutôt haut de gamme

Avez vous eu de mauvaises surprises? Le bruit : - la chambre jouxte la pièce des "machines" (chaudières, générateur pour la piscine...)[To Tuscany: the problem of the noise has been sorted] - la proximité avec les propriétaires

Avez vous d'autres commentaires? Autres détails pas tout à fait à la hauteur du cadre : le manque d'ustensiles de cuisine et de couverts, l'absence de radio et de TV Le point très positif : la gentillesse du propriétaire, ses bons tuyaux. Et il parle plutôt bien français !
