Location is ok for roaming Tuscany but little around locally. Main feature was the pool albeit the strange pool vacuum which was frequently on and was moving around the bottom of pool was wierd and I often wondered if it was safe given it was electric. The apartment was large but was on the wrong side of rustic! Musty smell was a little too far. TV didn't work in the living room, only plastic wine glasses available, no adapter for the toaster (!!) and a host of let downs all round on the kitchen ware. Breakfast was unspeakable - warm and bitter tasting milk with cornflakes and warm yoghurt doesn't normally do it for me. All capped off by a stonking accommodation bill - felt like idiots staying here.
Everything about the place is basic with an air of minimum effort from the hosts. They seem friendly but for the price we paid we expected more comfort, cleanliness and a decent breakfast (it's outright terrible). For example the bed is hard, the fridge is old and makes noise all through the night. Aircon is charged €8 which is unreasonable seeing as the room is already way overpriced. Even though there was a forest fire across the field for two days with ashes floating in the air we only had the room cleaned once in four days and no change of towels. Generally there's absolutely no service but a lot of smiling and nodding. I would say it's not what they are advertising online although the pool is lovely.
Seven days in a fantastic little bed and breakfast where the family could not do enough for you. Nothing was to much bother for them. The room was large with a view over the vine yards and Tuscan Hills. I would recommend this little tucked away Jewel to anyone who need a base for there holiday. The railway Station is 10 mins away where you can get trains to Florence, Lucca, Pistoria. The train system is so good it was daft to travel in the car. 3.5 Euro's into Florence.. all clean and on time.
this bb place advertise with a proud 860 rating and in deed the pic are very inviting: What we got was a crummy 2 bed room w. a small bath room, a 8x8 " TV, outdated mix and match( not Tuscana style furniture as advertised), a balcony with an electric tower house obstructing the view in front of it, their website ( which we made our selection)rooms to rent show wooden support ceilings and a beautiful bed arrangement: Since we pointed this out to the owner, he refused to accept the misleading advertisement and offered for $ 20/ night a better room. Also the old TV gave up 1 day before we were scheduled to leave: He replaced it with a larger flat screen in the time of our absence!!?? The price for the room and breakfast quality is excessive and on top the price list on the entrance door ask for $ 8 /night extra for AC: We showed him the advertising ,which says it is included and he acknowledge that. Otherwise a very charming owner and family. Made the booking w. hotel.com- booking .com. Took a lot of pic if anybody is interested to see: We were devastated; for sure,we won't be be back!!!…
We booked the large apartment with kitchen and two bedrooms for three nights. When we get there, it turned out that the apartment was underground and smelled bad. When we complained we were switching rooms but it felt old and poorly. Also, the breakfast was a disaster. The only thing that was ok was the pool. We chose to leave after one day but still got to pay for all three. Disaster residents, we will never return.
