Die Wohnung liegt sehr schön in den Weinbergen. Der Schnitt der Wohnung ist ideal für 2 Paare.
Leider ist der Aufenthalt auf der Dachterrasse kaum möglich, da üble Gerüche vom Abwassersiel hochkamen. Das Problem sollte dringend gelöst werden. Auch die mobile Klimaanlage bringt recht wenig.

Erg ruime woning die heel smaakvol is ingericht. Mooi uitzicht vanaf het terras. Het gehele terrein is prachtig en voorzien van veel bloemen en planten.
Het was in juli erg warm en dan zou een airconditioning op beide slaapkamers erg prettig zijn. De airconditioning die op één slaapkamer staat heeft geen afvoer naar buiten. Koelkast heeft geen vriesvak. De douche in de slaapkamer beneden kan niet opgehangen worden. De douche boven is daarentegen erg goed. Een lekkere loungebank op het terras zou fijn zijn. De ligstoelen bij het zwembad zijn erg hard en oncomfortabel.
Local attractions Heerlijk, betaalbaar en met schitterend uitzicht eten bij La Bottega in Volpaia. Vriendelijke bediening bij La grotta della Rana in het prachtige dorp San Sano.

Great position. Lovely private terrace. None of the apartments overlooked each other. Well equipped and spacious and quiet pool area.
Weather very hot so could have benefited from fan in main bedroom. Portable air conditioning unit not ideal in bedroom as nowhere to put external unit.
Local attractions Radda in Chianti and Volpaia both pretty villages with a variety of good restaurants. Swimming pool complex excellent at Quercegrossa.
