Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Poggio Landi!
La maison et les installations (cuisine notamment) sont parfaites.
Tout est juste, il n'y a aucun excès ou oubli.
Nous avons vécu paisiblement et quitté les lieux non sans le souhait d'y revenir.
Les personnes qui s'occupent de la maison sont aux petits soins.
Un séjour très agréable!

Si nous devions cependant mettre en avant les points moins positifs:
- un WC supplémentaire isolé au RDC serait agréable
- la route est parfois longue pour aller faire les courses
