Stay: July 2014
Pros Die Lage des Hauses ist für Familienferien hervorragend.Stark zu betonen ist die fantastische ruhige Lage und die aussergewöhnliche Aussicht. Die Poolanlage war sehr sauber und gepflegt, ebenfalls das Liegematerial. Die Terrasse ist ebenfalls zu erwähnen, die während den Urlaubstagen zum Mittelpunkt wurde. Es hatte sehr wenig Mücken und keine wespen oder bienen.
Cons Die Betten in den Zimmern entsprechen nicht mehr europäischem Standart.Matratzen und Unterbett müssten ersetzt werden. Entspanntes liegen und schlafen sind grundvoraussetzungen für schöne Ferien.
Local attractions Florenz, Siene und castellina in Chiantie sowie Cantona, Das beste Restaurant war ganz klar das "La Taverna " in Vagliagli.

Pros It was like living from a postcard, the views were spectacular, the owner was friendly and the place was very comfortable.
Cons We cannot fault it.
Local attractions La Taverna di Vegliagli - the food was excellent and well presented. All of our sites were fantastic, we visited, Siena, San Gimignano, Florence (twice). Our children and grandchildren enjoyed the the ride with I Bike Tuscany. And of course, the gelateria in Castellina in Chianti.

Stay: September 2013
Pros The setting with the view over to Siena is stunning. Very spacious with abundant bathrooms and a lovely pool. Rafaella (the housekeeper) was very friendly and helpful and we can recommend her delivered-in cooking.
Cons Mattresses on beds were mediocre and one double room had two single beds/mattresses that were at different heights. There was little useful information on the villa (although much about what we were not to do unless we wanted to face dire consequences), no guest book and very little literature about nearby attractions. Barbecue had not been cleaned and cigarette buts in the ashtrays by the pool.
Local attractions Castellina in Chianti - a beautiful small town with an excellent tower, museum and Gelateria. Siena with all it has to offer San Gimignano Meal-in service from Il Fiasco (wonderful!) Wine Tasting and lunch at Dievole vineyard (definitely worth the money!) Monteriggione Montefioralle (nr Greve) - truly the "oft-missed jewel" as per our guide book

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Ausflüge in die Umgebung
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Sehr gut
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Große Räumlichkeiten, genug Raum für alle
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Als wir grillen wollten haben wir einen sehr schmutzigen Grillplatz vorgefunden.
Man sollte auch diesen in die Endreinigung mitaufnehmen.
