Abbiamo soggiornato in 11 amici e 2 bambini a casa di Giacomo per capodanno... La casa è bellissima come si vede dalle foto pubblicate dall'host, spaziosa e confortevole. La cucina ha a disposizione parecchi elettrodomestici anche se il forno è un pó vecchio e malfunzionante ( non si chiude bene). Nel salotto c'è un bel camino con stufa e fuori c'è un barbecue che abbiamo utilizzato comodamente. Purtroppo non abbiamo conosciuto Giacomo ma i nostri house sitting ci hanno trattato benissimo e si sono uniti a noi per le cene e anche per una corsette per le colline del chianti. Unico inconveniente del soggiorno è stato un problema all'impianto di riscaldamento,che abbiamo peró superato accendendo gli inverter presenti in ogni stanza ed una stufetta elettrica oltre al camino.
È stata una bella vacanza in un posto ben tenuto e con una stupenda vista sulle colline del Montalbano che consiglieremo ai nostri amici!!!
Grazie Velentina. Volevo solo sottolineare che solo la porta del forno era difettosa ed e' stata riparata e c'era un interruttore della caldaia che andava azionato ma purtroppo i ns amici che hanno fatto house sitting non lo sapevano ma comunque tutte le calde hanno condizionatori d'aria con inverter.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Giacomo. Le logement était comme sur les photos; nous avons eu la chambre bleue, qui était certes un peu sombre, mais avec une jolie vue. Le lit était vraiment très confortable, et c'était difficile de se réveiller tous les matins. La vue est vraiment sublime, et le cadre reposant. Il faut compter environ 50minutes pour rejoindre Florence, quand on n'est pas habitué à la route. Le wifi ne fonctionne malheureusement que dans le lounge (le séjour), et j'aurais bien voulu l'avoir dans la chambre. Si je dois revenir en Toscane, j'irai certainement chez Giacomo, qui était très accueillant.
Perfecto sitio para desconectar e ideal para viajar en grupo con otras familias o amigos. Muy tranquilo y bonito
We have spent 7 days at the Tuscany, but the best days were the 2 days at Giacomo's Home.
Giacomo and Rolly are very friendly and Helpful.
We were 6 adults, 2 children and 1 baby, and normally isn't easy accommodate one big group like this, and in Giacomo's home all was easy.
The views of the house are amazing and the rooms are good and the decoration is wonderful.
And Giacomo give us a really interesting tips for visit Firenze.
If in the future we return to the Tuscany, we will return at Giacomo's home.
Was a great experience.
Thanks for everything
Wij zijn een week verbleven op deze prachtige plek. En wat hebben wij genoten! Het uitzicht is adembenemend, de kamers zijn schoon, mooi en knus. Vanaf het zwembad keken we uit over de mooie heuvels en bergen van Toscane.
Met de auto waren de plaatsen Lucca, Florence, Pisa en Siena ook goed te bereiken. En dan was het heerlijk 's avonds weer terug te komen in The stone house.
Giacomo en Rolly waren heel aardig en behulpzaam. Het is zeer zeker een plek waar we nog eens terug zullen komen.
Groetjes Carlo en Hanke
We had a wonderful vacation at the old stone house in Tuscany. I traveled with 10 other people, family and friends, and we filled the house. The rooms were beautiful and comfortable and the common spaces perfect. Everywhere you look there is something beautiful...inside and out. The terrace was great for sitting with coffee in the morning, relaxing in the afternoon, wine in the evening. I could not stop looking at the view!! I highly recommend a stay at Giacomo's beautiful house! Giacomo and Rolly were perfect hosts!
Unfortunately we missed meeting Giacomo however, Rolly was a wonderful host meeting all our needs & requests. The old stone house in Tuscany was a unique place where to relax in comfort and enjoy the stunning scenery across a valley...a photographers delight. All rooms of accomodation have wonderful works of art on the walls. The kitchen works well yet there are restaurants close by. The nearest supermarket is about 15 mins. away by car. My husband and I stayed for 10 nights, an excellent base to travel from by car to Florence, Pisa & places of interest that you will find in books in the stone house. If travelling by car use the GPS to get to the stone house by putting in the street address as Montalbano 23 and town Lamporecchio and you will get there without difficulty. Enjoy your stay as we did. Delrae & James
