Pros ALLES !!! Perfecte locatie, erg netjes verzorgd. We hebben een super mooie week gehad en het uitzicht is werelds.... Heeeeeeeeerlijk huis.
Cons Niks.
Local attractions Arezzo. Is enorm gezellig. De Chianti streek is ook werelds. De wijn proeverijen zijn ook zeer aan te raden. Wat ook enorm te gek is, is dat er in cafés tussen 18.00 uur en 21.00 gratis hapjes buffetjes bij de drankjes worden geserveerd. Dit is onNederlands maar wat een feest. Was TOP !!!!

Pros Das Haus ist einfach fantastisch mit wunderbarem, ja eigentlich traumhaften Blick von allen Plätzen. Die Lage des Hauses ist auf einem Berg, fast alleine gelegen, mit befahrbarem Schotterweg und Blick auf Civitella in Val di Chiana. Es ist sehr gepflegt, alles, aber auch wirklich alles ist vorhanden, wir haben nichts vermisst. Die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich, die Gartenanlage ist gepflegt und wird regelmäßig von Stefano gewässert und der Pool saubergemacht. Die Zimmer sind liebevoll und gemütlich eingerichtet, die Bäder sind geräumig und gut, die Ausstattung ist überdurchschnittlich.
Cons Das Bad im Erdgeschoss ist einwenig klein, das Schlafzimmer zeigte leichte Feuchtigkeitsspuren und es ist zuwenig Stauraum vorhanden. Da wir aber nur zu 6 hier waren, gab es ausreichend Ausweichmöglichkeiten und alle konnten sehr zufrieden sein.
Local attractions Wir haben uns zweimal vom Privatkoch Andrea (Il Fiasco) im Haus bekochen lassen. Es lohnt sich sehr, tolles Essen, netter Service und rundherum nette Abende. Das Restaurant Casa Gecco in Malfiano, unweit des Hauses, ist auch wirklich empfehlenswert. Tolle Küche, netter Koch und traumhafter Blick von der Gartenterrasse. Sehr gut ist auch die deutsche Köchin Silvia in Anghiari, Restaurant Da Alighiero. Sehenswert sind: San Gimignano, Cortona, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena und viele andere Städte in der Region. Ein Auto und Fahrtzeiten von ca. 1 Stunde sind einzuplanen.

Pros The villa is in a lovely setting, the views are simply spectacular.
Our hosts were incredibly friendly & couldn't to enough to help us, even organising a birthday cake and flowers for my wife
Villa itself is stunning
Lots of space
Felt very safe
Cons Pool a little cold so kids didn't use it as much as we would like Location meant that we had to drive a little further to see main sites, but it was worth it when we got there. Kitchen a little basic but no big deal

Pros Nous avons apprécié cette grande maison. Une vue magnifique sur Civitella et la campagne toscane. La piscine. Plusieurs lieux pour déjeuner ou dîner à l’extérieur de la maison
Accueil très sympa pour la prise de la maison.
IL faut aimer être au calme car la villa est isolée. (de l'autre coté du village Civitella - 3 minutes en voiture)
Cons RAS
Local attractions Bien située, la maison est le point de départ pour plusieurs destinations. En une semaine nous avons visité Arezzo, Sienne, Florence (1 seule journée), Assise, Perugia, san giminiano, la route des vins du chianti.

Pros War der schönste Urlaub, den wir je hatten! Exzellente Betreuung vor Reisebeginn.Freundlicher Empfang vor Ort.Wunderschöne Aussicht! Eine Ruheoase auf einem Berg! Vollkommen Umzäunt! sauber, heimelig, traumhafte Gartenanlage-extrem gepflegt! Besitzer sehr freundlich. Kamen einmal Pool reinigen und im Garten arbeiten und das mit Terminangabe und bevor wir aufstanden waren sie schon wieder weg.Geben sich wirklich sehr viel Mühe und das strahlt das ganze Anwesen aus!!!
Cons Es gibt nichts, was uns nicht gefallen hat!
Local attractions Die gegenüberliegende Stadt ist wunderschön-wir wollten aber keine Ausflüge machen, obwohl es genug zu sehen gäbe.Wir kennen die toskana gut und wollten einfach nur in diesem wunderschönen Haus bleiben und die Einsamkeit genießen!

Nearest town

The nearest town Civitella in Val Di Chiana is only 4km from the villa. Here you will find a grocery store, supermarket, pharmacy and a bank. There is also a small selection of restaurants. The town was once fortified with walls and towers; the remains of one of the towers has had some restoration work done to it. Places of interest are the church of Santa Maria, the Rocca and the Palazzo Pretorio. The second week in September is when the Feast of Grape, Olive Oil and Wine, is held, and there is plenty of opportunity to try the local products.
