Ein überaus hübsches Anwesen, für alle geeignet, die Ruhe und Erholung suchen.
Sehr angenehm ist die Aufteilung der Wohnung, in der Mitte Wohn/Essbereich und links und rechts davon jeweils ein Schlaf- und ein Badezimmer, sehr praktisch, wenn man mit älteren und schon selbständigen Kindern reist. Ideal auch für zwei Paare.

Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und hat Geschirr für eine große Familie und für toskanisches Essen auf dem schönen Terrassenplatz.

Zu berücksichtigen ist die Anfahrt, mal schnell Frühstücksbrötchen holen geht nicht. Außerdem ist die Strasse sehr holprig und für tiefergelegtes Fahrwerk nicht geeignet. Wir haben dafür ein Auto gemietet, weil wir es im Vorfeld schon wussten.
Ein kleines Abenteuer darf auch im Urlaub mal sein:)

Dafür entschädigt die Abgeschiedenheit und die Lage mitten im Grünen.

Gerne empfehlen wir la Porcilaia sowie das gesamte Anwesen weiter.

Grüße aus Österreich
Local attractions Siena haben wir zwei mal besucht und es lohnt sich absolut. Crete Senesi und die Fahrt durch das Val d'orcia ist traumhaft schön. San Gimignano auch ein Muss auf der Besichtigungstour und über Castellina eine wundervolle Reise.
