Na de stijlvolle oprit met cypressen een fantastisch huis met beeldschoon uitzicht. Zeer smaakvol ingericht en heel erg ruim. Wij waren met ouder stel met kinderen en kleinkinderen (11 totaal), en er is zeker plaats voor meer mensen zonder elkaar in de weg te lopen.
Prettige slaapkamers en veel badkamers. Heerlijk zwembad met duikplank en verlichting!
Altijd buiten kunnen eten, dus feitelijk waren de zithoeken overbodig. Grote goed geoutilleerde keuken.
Jammer dat de week voorbij was.
Fabrizio de beheerder is vriendelijk en bereikbaar, omdat hij op het terrein woont. Hij kookt met een bekende op verzoek een heerlijke maaltijd (4 gangen). Hij was overdag bezig met de wijnbouw.
Local attractions Gaiole is een leuk nog niet echt toeristisch dorpje met meerdere prettige restaurants., koffiegelegenheden en een goed voorziene winkel. Verder nog een alimentari/bakker en slager. Radda, Siena in de buurt en natuurlijk ook Florence en andere bezienswaardige steden, maar het verblijf zelf is zo prettig dat er weinig behoefte was de hele dag op stap te gaan.
