Sehr freundliche Vermieter. Alles vorhanden und in sehr gepflegtem Zustand. Starter Paket war sehr hilfreich.
Wenn alle Gäste am Pool sind, zu wenig Liegen (war bei uns zum Glück nur ein mal)
Local attractions Restaurant in Maria Pia in Sasetta war sehr gut (das einzige wo zum Abendessen im August ohne Reservierung ein Tisch frei war)

To Tuscany team comments for this review:

21.08.2016
OWNER COMMENT: Thank you for your kind review. We are sorry to hear you could not always find a place to sit at the pool. There are currently 8 sunbeds, two tables offering 6 more seats and a large bench. There is no more room to add anything further around the pool area without it becoming too cramped. We hope you enjoyed the terraces. The villa has 2 terraces, one of which offers a lot of privacy. Outside the villa, overlooking the pool is a terrace furnished with a couple of cushioned chairs and a two person iron chair to relax. To one side is a small dining table with 3 chairs shaded by an umbrella.

Das Haus ist ruhig gelegen, es hat uns optisch gut gefallen, der Pavillon war gemütlich, der Wohnbereich lieblich dekoriert, die Küche gut ausgestattet, der Poolbereich hat genügend Liegen samt Auflagen.
Als äußerst nett und zuvorkommend möchte ich jedenfalls die Vermieterfamilie hervorheben!
Local attractions Da wir nur zu Fuß die Restaurants besuchen konnten und uns der Weg von Sassetta zurück doch zu steil war, waren wir nur im Restaurant "Il Castagno". Dieses Restaurant war urig ausgestattet, die Bedienung äußerst freundlich und das Essen ausgezeichnet, die Wildschweinspezialitäten wurden in sämtlichen Variationen ausprobiert und haben alle gemundet.
