Stay: August 2014
Pros Prachtig uitzicht. Alles was aanwezig, handdoeken, parasols, ligzetels.... De keuken was goed uitgerust. Het terrein is goed onderhouden en het zwembed was zalig. Villa ligt in de buurt van grote steden zoals Firenze die gemakkelijk met de trein bereikbaar zijn. Ideale locatie voor ons gezelschap bestaande uit ouders, kinderen en kleinkinderen
Cons Het laatste stukje grindweg was in heel slechte staat waardoor ons de moed ontbrak om 's avonds nog weg te gaan om iets te gaan eten. Gelukkig was er de faciliteit om een privé kok in te huren waarvan we gebruik hebben gemaakt. Er was im sommige douches en in de keuken te weinig druk op het water.
Local attractions Geen resaturants bezocht wegens slechte onverlichte weg. Wel beroep gedaan op Emily Hardcastle, privé-kok. Was zeer goed. Eén van de kinderen heeft een voedselallergie en het was geen probleem voor haar om het menu aan te passen. Station was ongeveer 10 min. rijden. Van daaruit kan je de meeste Italiaanse steden bezoeken. Bakker niet te vinden. Pas na 3 dagen hadden we door dat je brood kan kopen in een plaatselijke allimentari. In Malmantile is een COOP waar je alles vindt wat je nodig hebt.

The owner apologises that you had problems with the water pressure. They would have been more than happy to help if they had been informed. They have now checked it and changed the filters and it is working at full pressure now.

Pros Excellent location near to Florence and with stunning views over the surrounding countryside. Spacious accommodation and well equipped, with an excellent pool and outdoor facilities which was ideal for children of all ages. A fabulous fortnight enjoyed by us all and seriously thinking about coming back again next year.
Local attractions We visited Florence, which is only 15 mins by train from the local station. Florence has to be one of the great cities anywhere in the world. Locally, we visited Edy Piu restaurant which deserves its no 1 TripAdvisor status.
