Vecchio Fienile
The Vecchio Fienile is a collection of 5 houses that is located on the gentle slopes of the Chianti hills near the typical Tuscan hamlet of S. Appiano, which lies between Siena and Florence. This tranquil location has superb views of the surrounding countryside and is just 4km from the highway.

There is a large pool that lies in the gardens behind the building where in its raised position the pool enjoys the warmth of the sun the whole day. In its location slightly higher than the houses of the hamlet, the pool has complete privacy from windows of the houses although it is only 20 meters away. At one end of the pool there is a hydro massage.

In this characteristic hamlet there is ample covered parking and large communal gardens, although each house has its own private garden. The hamlet is ideally located with good access to many restaurants and shops in the area and to the main routes to historic towns.
There are open views around the Vecchio Fienile in this quiet and peaceful position.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Ganz klar: Unsere zwei Besuche in Volterra. Aber auch die sehr netten und ruhigen Abende auf der Terrasse mit italienischem Abendessen, Brunello und Sonnenuntergang.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Sehr gut, gute Ausstattung, exzellente Lage, sehr gepflegt (Vermieter war täglich vor Ort und hat sich zurückhaltend um alles gekümmert), maximaler Erholungseffekt.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Keine außer vieler Ameisen.
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Traumurlaub! :-)
