For correspondence by mail and telephone, I also speak ENGLISH, FRENCH, SPANISH. My mother will welcome you, she only speaks Italian, but I'm always available by phone or email.
Lovely apartment and well located in the Tuscany region. The apartment is just what you need when touring the region. Although the shower pressure is not great and the hot water is a little temperamental I can say that these didn't detract from our stay. Valeria and her mum where great and very accommodating as we we late due to traffic and the weather delaying us at the beginning of our day when we fear left Florence. Definitely a great place to stay!
This is the best apartment we've ever stayed while travelling. It's incredibly spacious and luxury. The location is perfect for car travellers. Beautiful Toscana landscapes are just around the corner. Valeria provided very flexible check-in/check-out timeframe for us.
It's very lucky and smart choice if you visit Valeria's house in Asciano. Her place is very clean and quiet, and the neighbours are very friendly. We were very lucky to meet Palio dei Ciuchi! We got invited by local people and celebrate their winning! We really enjoy our stay and have to thank to Valeria and her Mom's kind hospitality! I would like to visit her place when I visit Italy. Thanks Valeria!
Gute Vorbereitung und Organisation. Die Wohnung ist noch besser als in der Beschreibung, viel Platz und zwei Balkone. Sehr freundliche Nachbarschaft!
Consiglio vivamente l’appartamento di Valeria, spazioso, ben arredato e pulito, fornito di tutto il necessario.
Posizione comoda con la macchina per visitare questa bellissima parte di Toscana.
Un ringraziamento a Valeria ed alla mamma per la loro gentilezza e disponibilità.
L'appartamento di Valeria e' in posizione perfetta per scoprire i dintorni: Siena, Arezzo, San Gimignano, le Terme di Rapolano .... L'interno spazioso e ben fornito. Ospitanti gentili e disponibili. Molto consigliato!
We've been booking a place to stay from August up to now, stayed more than 15 flats traveling UK, France, Italy, felt Valeria's house was the best among all. And I need to say that I always check the reviews and compare the flat with others' a lot. Before booking this flat I also read the review about the train station, Asciano train station is just 50meters away from the flat, very small train station but if you want you could go to Firenze, Siena whereever you want, very convenient. Maybe the person who wrote the review down there was confused. Asciano train station and Asciano MOM train station is different, and at least if you are going to a place that you don't know, you can just copy the address and paste it on gmap, you can easily find this flat is just near to Asciano train station. And as the host replied, at trenitalia where you can book your train ticket, you need to click the tab of "Tutti I Treni" which gives you cheaper and more train tickets, maybe trenitalia made a default on "Le Frecce" because those trains are expensive but fast. This is little tip I can give you.
Flat was very spacious with big livingroom, nice kitchen with all the appliances maybe enough for more than 6-7 people at a time, two twin bedroom were very comfortable. In the bathroom, plenty of towels (big and small, very clean). On the ground floor, one more very nice bathroom and private parking lot, washing machine, two bicycles which were very nice for discovering the town.
Valeria was very helpful, giving us all the informations, always taking care of us on all aspects. We couldn't meet in face to face but on the evening of check-in day we could Skype. On the fifth day her mom came to give us present. Neighbors were very nice too.
If you have car, it's much convenient to go to supermarket which is 2km away from the flat. Price is cheap, host is super nice, good location, big and spotless flat.
Super strongly recommended!!
