Sehr schöne Lage auf einer Anhöhe mit toller Aussicht. Komfortable Ausstattung des Hauses. Viele Freiflächen zum Fußball spielen, etc. Großzügiger Pool.
Local attractions Pienza und Montepulciano sind einen Besuch wert. Pecorino und Porchetta aus den zahlreichen Feinkostengeschäften sind sehr zu empfehlen.

So macht Ferien machen echt Spass, jederzeit gerne wieder und empfehlen, ja klar und wie. Danke ans Ganze Team ( einziger kleiner Mangel, war das Steinwerk gegenüber, kann recht laut sein... )

Sehr schöne neue Anlage mit hochwertiger Ausstattung und viel Platz. Der Jahreszeit entsprechend war der Pool noch viel zu kalt zum Baden.
Einziger Kritikpunkt sind die Matrazen, die sowohl bei mir als auch bei meiner Partnerin zu Rückenschmerzen geführt haben.
Zu erwähnen ist noch, dass es leider nur italienische TV-Sender gab, was aber des guten Wetters verschmerzbar war.
Local attractions Montepulciano, Siena, Montalcino, Florenz. Sehr zu empfehlen ist das Restaurant "Osteria Del Conte" in Montepulciano.

Een mooi huis in een schitterende omgeving! Het wild liep rond het huis! Zo'n mooie ervaring als er een vos naar binnen gluurt! En op een avond kwamen we op het pad naar het park 4 kleine wilde zwijntjes tegen!
Local attractions In de buurt zijn hele leuke plaatsjes! Pienza, Montepulciano en Cortona We hebben gegeten in Sinalunga bij een typisch Italiaans restaurant Il Cassero. Als je naar een Outlet wilt is die bij Betolle de moeite waard!

Zeer ruime woning met dito terras. Prima regeling van de binnentemperatuur. Prachtige, rustige ligging met veel privacy. Luxe inrichting met prima faciliteiten, bijna on-Italiaans en een zeer plezierige beheerder van het park.
De internetverbinding behoeft verbetering.
Local attractions Weinig/geen restauratieve voorzieningen in de directe omgeving. Het verdient aanbeveling hierover meer informatie te verstrekken aan huurders. In de omgeving ligt een aantal kleinere, interessante historische steden, die niet van de toeristen vergeven zijn. Daarnaast zijn er in de nabije omgeving enkele interessante wijnhuizen.

- Die Anlage als Ganzes, Die Aufteilung der Wohnung im Speziellen.
- Moderne Einrichtung
- gute Ausstattung
- sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Verwalter (spricht ordentliches Englisch und Italienisch)
- Keine Fliegengitter an den Fenstern
- kein Bidet
- Die Anlage liegt doch sehr einsam und man hat um in eine Stadt oder zum Einkaufen zu kommen immer ca. mind. 20 Minuten Anfahrt
- Bei Vollauslastung sind am Pool viel zu wenig Sonnenschirme und Liegen
- Keine Dusche am Pool
- Keine Sonnenliegen auf der Terasse der eigenen Wohnung
- TV hat nur italienische Sender (für Familien ggf. ein Nachteil - für uns nicht)
- sehr viele Bremsen (Stechmücken auf der Anlage) auf der Anlage und dem Zubringerschotterweg - daher ist Joggen auch nicht möglich.
Local attractions Ausflugsziele: Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Arrezo (am besten Samstags am Markttag) Restaurants: Le Macine (gehört noch zum Ort Trequanda) sehr nah (10 Min. über übel holprige Schotterstrecke, aber das typisch toskanische Essen und der Ausblick entschädigen mehr als genug). Dazu ein sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.
