Das Haus ist für 4 Erwachsene bzw. 4 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder optimal.
Für 6 Erwachsene sind die Platzverhältnisse doch etwas beengt!
Schade war, dass der Laden entgegen den ersten Beschreibungen nicht geöffnet war und auch an den ersten Tagen kein Internet verfügbar war.
Local attractions Die Wege zu Einkaufsmöglichkeiten/Restaurants sind weit und kurvenreich. Mindestens eine halbe Stunde Fahrzeit ist für eine Streck einzuplanen. Empfehlenswert ist der Metzger in Mercatale Valdarno; gute Wurst und Fleisch/Grillfleisch - und auch der 10 Liter-Weinschlauch "Chianti" kann mindestens mit den 12 € Flaschen der Weingüter mithalten! Die Öffnung des Ladens in Montefienali sollte vor einer Buchung überprüft werden! Es wäre toll gewesen, hier vor Ort auf kurzem Weg Wein und Kuchen zu kaufen!!!

Sfeervolle woning. Ruim genoeg. Keuken goed. Rust. Midden in natuur. Zwembad aanwezig/ok. BBQ goed.
Mogelijk TE rustig. Sleuteloverdracht te ver van huisje. Badkamers geen sloten. Niet voldoende kussens voor tuinmeubilair.
Local attractions In Montefienali zijn geen restaurants. Directe omgeving geen. Niet nodig, na bezoek stad(jes) daar gegeten en daarna terug naar slaaplokatie.

Die Casa dell'olio ist zweckmäßig eingerichtet und hat eine gute Raumaufteilung; wir haben uns auf Anhieb wohlgefühlt. Da sich der Jahreswechsel nicht unbedingt dazu eignet draußen zu sitzen, konnten wir die beiden schönen Sitzgruppen vor dem Haus und den Grill leider nicht nutzen. Obwohl wir uns viel im Haus aufgehalten haben, konnten wir uns gut erholen. Es war eine schöne Zeit.
Wir hätten uns eine Spülmaschine gewünscht, da bei 6 Personen doch viel Geschirr anfällt, das dann in der etwas kleinen Küche gespült werden muss. Auf die Waschmaschine kann unserer Meinung nach verzichtet werden. Außerdem haben wir einen großen Topf vermisst.
Local attractions Wir haben und die Städte im Umkreis von Montefienali von San Gimignano bis Florenz angeschaut und in der Nähe schöne Wanderungen gemacht.
