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.

Pros Très beau site, isolé et calme. Logement satisfaisant, très peu de promiscuité. Peu de locataires (5), donc calme et reposant, notamment autour de la piscine. Bien arboré. au niveau géographique, le lieu est central entre les sites, et autour, en sortant des sentiers battus, on peut découvrir des villages magnifiques.
Cons Pas égouttoir à salade.
Local attractions Énormément de choses à voir en Toscane, mais à proximité, Barberino, magnifique village, ses 2 restaurants à la vue exceptionnelle, sa rue piétonne avec quelques exposants locaux le soir venu....

Pros The grounds were well maintained and the views excellent. Although the weather was a little on the cool side for swimming the pool area was very nice and the provision for sitting and eating outside was good.
Cons The lack of local tourist information. Generally attention to detail with regard to items that become annoying i.e. the toaster was rubbish, no small tables to put a glass on, cheap cutlery. Pietra did not take advantage of the great views form within the property.

Pros Wonerful location though a car is a must. Pisa 75 mins, Siena 2o mins, Florence 30 mins. San Gimignano which is a beautiful small town 15 mins. Good comfortable accomodation for 2 people would be OK for 2 adults and 2 younger children. Fine pool though not used as it was October. Great views of Tuscany countryside. Good restaurant within walking distance. Handy if you want to sample the local Chianti. Very helpful key holder, excellent English.
Cons Very little. Kitchen equipment a little basic though quite adequate. Cooked in six out of seven evenings.
Local attractions San Gimignano, local walled town which is quite touristy but an excellent find. Local restuarant in Sant'Appiano (Antica Osteria) is excellent and a 15 minute walk.

Pros Die Außenanlage, es war alles sehr gepflegt. Die Nähe zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten. Die Aussicht. Die Ruhe.
Cons Dass es im Haus sehr kalt und keine Möglichkeit zu heizen war. In der Wohnung war es etwas zu dunkel. Die Betten waren sehr hart und wir haben daher sehr schlecht geschlafen. Deshalb würde ich es nur Leuten empfehlen, die sich gerne hart betten.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Die Umgebung und die vielen Sehenswürdigkeiten waren sehr beeindruckend.
Besonders gut hat uns Lucca gefallen. Alle Leute waren sehr nett und zuvorkommend.
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Alles sauber und gepflegt. Nur das Bett für die zwei Kinder war etwas zu hart und unbequem.
Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Nein
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Fanden alles sehr gut und auch unser Hund hat sich sehr wohl gefühlt.

Quelle est votre impression générale concernant l'hébergement? Très bien, cadre somptueux, entretien impeccable, rien à dire.
Avez vous eu de mauvaises surprises? Non à part le temps, mais vous n'y êtes pour rien !
Avez vous d'autres commentaires? Peut-être un peu de documentation et une chaîne TV en langue française !

What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    It was exactly as portrayed in the website - it was just what we were looking for! It was clean and the owners were very helpful.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us? None at all.

Was waren die Highlights Ihres Urlaubs? Das tolle Wetter, die überraschend tolle Lage der FeWo, und der Ort Colle val d'Elsa!!!!!
Wie war Ihr Gesamteindruck von der Unterbringung? Der war in Ordnung. Für diese preisgünstige Unterbringung, war alles vorhanden, was wir benötigten... vielleicht hätte es etwas mehr Besteck sein dürfen... ;-)

Gab es unangenehme Überraschungen? Heizung fiel aus, bzw. lief durchgehend, machte nachts Lärm, nervig! Hatten dadurch hohen Verbrauch und folglich eine hohe Rechnung!! (70 Euro für 10 Tage!!!!) Der nette Vermieter hat sich zwar bemüht, das Problem zu beheben, dennoch ärgerten wir uns darüber...
Haben Sie andere Anmerkungen? Nö, wenn wir wieder nach Italien fahren würden, würden wir es bestimmt wieder über to toscana laufen lassen.

What were the highlights of your holiday? Just being able to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views.
what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Lovely - more than we had expected. Paglia's upstairs was very roomy however the downstairs TV area was a little small for the 4 of us when it wasn't hot enough to sit outside. Pietra was gorgeous for the two of us.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises? Only that on the 2nd week, we were woken by the noisy gardners mowing and strimming at 7.45 am to midday for our last 4 mornings. They seemed to take an awful long time to do the mowing!!!
Do you have any other comments? We had very nice 'neighbours' throughout the holiday and we would definately consider using To Tuscany when we next book a holiday in Italy. Mauritzio was very helpful and it made me feel safe knowing that we could call him at anytime if we had an emergency.
