Excellent relaxation, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We've just arrived home again after a beautiful and relaxing 2 week holiday in Tuscany.

Property is fantastic, features the most beautiful garden with an excellent swimming pool. Three different places to sit outside (patio, terrace, furniture in the garden under a tree) and that is not even including the relaxing loungers in the garden. So we typically had breakfast on the terrace, appetizers & drinks on the loungers and evening dinner on the patio.

House inside is large and cool, features 2 double bedrooms (each of them have their own bathroom, one with shower, one with bathtub/shower combo). Well-equipped kitchen including dishwasher. Nice sitting area with relaxing seats and lcd television (which fitted nicely together with our media player, which we take along everywhere we go on holidays).

Everything included in the price (no separate charges for cleaning, electricity or whatever, which was nice & easy).

Luigi, the owner, was most kind and made sure the garden was in top shape every morning. He even arranged for a candle-light evening swim on one evening. We got small tastes of the local culture on several occasions, including ravioli, melanzane etc, etc.

Very relaxing stay, no negative comments at all really. The only downside to our holiday was that it had to end after 2 weeks...
