Im Haus und Garten haben wir uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Es ist ruhig und nur wenig Verkehr bis kein Verkehr hörbar.
Die Erreichbarkeit des Hauses ist gut möglich, allerdings nur über eine kurvenreiche Strecke.
Leider benötigt man 1 1/2 Stunden zum Strand. Dafür hat man einen sauberen Pool, mit ausreichend Liegen. Im Gartenbereich sind zudem Liegen und Sitzmöglichkeiten in ausreichender Anzahl vorhanden.
Die Küche ist voll ausgestattet: Stabmixer, Rührgerät und gute Messer sind vorhanden, welche ja gerne mal in Ferienhäusern fehlen.
Das Babybett und der Hochstuhl sind ebenfalls in gutem Zustand.
Local attractions Pizzeria La Grotta - sehr gute Pizzeria in Roccalbegna Monte Amiata - schöne Wanderwege Castel del Piano - Eisdiele
