Schöner Urlaub im wundervollen Ambiente!
Das kleine Studio ist gemütlich eingerichtet (abgesehen von der stark durchgelegenen Matraze des Doppelbettes, dass einen erholsamen Schlaf unmöglich machte !!) mit genügend Platz für 2 Personen und guter Ausstattung. Allerdings sollten Filterkaffee Trinker einen kaffeefilteraufsatz + Filter mitbringen, da es zu der Zeit nur eine kleine Mokka Kaffemaschiene gab.
Die Terrasse ist traumhaft, ruhig, sonnengebadet von früh bis späht, mit Weitsicht über die grünen Hügel und Weinberge. Super Lage, nur 2 km von San Gimignano, guter Ausgangspunkt für Aüsflüge in die Toskana.
Lucia, die Gastgeberin ist sehr freundlich und mit vielen nützlichen Tipps stehts zur Stelle!
