The large swimming pool (14m x 10m) is found in the well-maintained garden area of the hamlet and has endless views across the Tuscan countryside below. For your comfort, sun loungers and umbrellas are sited on the terrace surrounding the pool. Built in steps lead you gradually in to the shallow area of the pool.

Belle propriété, belle piscine avec une vue exceptionnelle.Il manque peut-être des parasols à la piscine.
Les animaux de la ferme apportent une animation complémentaire, sans gêne.
Lieu calme (très appréciable), location agréable.
Selon nous, il manque juste une vraie table de salon (nous avons utilisé une petite table où se trouvait une lampe) et des ustensiles de cuisine neufs ou presque (type Ikéa) et non dépareillés (poêles, cocottes, verres...) et une cuisinière en meilleur état.
Accueil très agréable des propriétaires (gâteau, vin, eau), discussion très agréable (malgré la langue ! heureusement, l'anglais relie).
Expérience globalement positive.
Local attractions - Osteria Alla Piazza à La Piazza, Castellina in Chianti. - Ristorante - Griglieria Al Fierale à Pienza - Da Roberto, Taverna à Montisi (réserver) - Visites : Abbazia de Sant'Antimo, Pienza, Abbazia di Monte Oliveto Maggiore, bien sûr Florence, San Gimignano et Sienne, et les petites routes de Toscane avec leurs vues et couleurs exceptionnelles.

OWNER COMMENT: Buongiorno grazie per il vostro commento , avete ragione la cucina e' da rinnovare e quest'anno faremo dei cambiamenti in tutto l'appartamento per la prossima stagione. Il tavolo come da voi richiesto non lo abbiamo piu messo perche creava problemi con i bambini, dobbiamo guardare anche alla sicurezza, magari se mi facevi una richiesta specifica vi avrei dato un tavolo da salotto senza problemi. Gli utensili non sono Ikea ma acquistati in negozio per casalinghi a Siena Spero di rivedervi presto e cordialmente vi saluto Stefania e Giulio Good morning thanks for your comment, you're right the kitchen is to be renewed and this year we will make changes throughout the apartment for the next season. The table as you requested we did not put it anymore because it created problems with the children, we must also look at security, maybe if you asked me a specific request I would have given you a living room table without problems. The tools are not Ikea but bought in store for housewares in Siena I hope to see you again soon and cordially greet you Stefania and Giulio
