La situation d'un charmant petit hameau perdu au milieu des collines du Chianti.

La rusticité des salles de bains, cela mériterait un peu plus de confort. L'éclairage extérieur ne fonctionnait pas durant la quasi totalité de notre séjour, dommage nous n'avons pas pu profiter de l'espace extérieur le soir au mois d'Août. Il y a beaucoup de moustiques, d'araignées et de scorpions, il vaut mieux être armé côté crème anti moustiques. Il serait agréable que la piscine soit chauffée. Enfin le lave linge était en panne 12 jours sur 14 que nous sommes restés, dommage quand on a une famille avec 3 enfants!
Local attractions Radda in Chianti est le village à proximité le plus proche avec commerces, restaurants...Il faut compter 15 minutes en voiture pour s'y rendre. Sinon Sienne est à 30 minutes et Florence 1heure.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:12.02.2018
Thank you for your comments. The outside lighting is connected to a mains control where it goes on at dusk and off at 1:00am. The washing machine was fixed as quickly as possible. It was necessary to order a part which took several days.
