Cuisine pas assez équipée en ustensiles pour la capacité d'accueil, wi-fi difficilement accessible dans toute la maison (salon), canapé sale et vieillissant (prévoir son remplacement), chambre du fond trop grande, impossible de l'aérer et très froide en cette saison, venue du propriétaire (?) pour aller à la grange pendant le séjour ...
Terrasse extérieure agréable, cheminée du salon agréable.
To Tuscany team comments for this review:20.11.2016
Thank you for your review. The owner was sorry to hear you did not find there to be enough equipment. They have checked and there are 20 of each crockery with ample glasses and cutlery. They were also sorry to hear you felt cold. They would have gladly added another heater.
