Riccardo was very accomodating and made us feel extremely welcome. Riccardo provided information for getting to Florence on the bus rather than train and parking availability near bus stop. The accomodation was as described and everything was provided. It is in a rural location so having a car was essential, there was a village about 4 km away that had a small supermarket for groceries, for breakfast, although with a superb little restaurant 5 steps from our front door run by Mario and Tonia we could not fault the food for value and it was the best food we had had good quality down to earth home style cooking. If this food did not please you or anyone else I would be very surprised. Had the pool been up and running accept for going to Florence we would not have left the premises as everything was there.
We had a very nice time at your place, Short and sweet. It was very nice to meet you chat and we hope to see you next time. Cheers, Martha
The apartment is fantastic and quite comfortable. It was clean and had all the equipment which you can need. The location is also nice and close to other interesting places to visit. Ricardo is superb, he helped us to organize our days and gave us some tips regarding visiting wineries. We also recommend the restaurant in the farm, the food was delicious and the service fantastic. We are now thinking on coming back during spring or summer to enjoy the swimming pool and the activities of the region during those seasons.
A beautifully refurbished apartment on a Tuscan farm. This place is right out of a dream. Plenty f space an amenities, easy drives to Siena, all over chianti region, San gimignano, etc. Riccardo and his family were wonderful. Great restaurant on the property. Just a beautiful spot! We would love to come back for a longer stay.
Amazing place. It's pity that we stay there only 1 day. Next time, I certainly stay for 4 days at lest.
Le gîte est très bien placé, proche de Sienne, mais à portée aussi de Florence. Nous venions pour les peintures du Quattrocento et avons été comblés.
Le logement est très convenable, dans un endroit particulièrement calme, d'où l'on domine les merveilleuses collines de Toscane.
L'accueil de Riccardo est excellent. Un exemple : nous souhaitions acheter du fromage chez un producteur local, il a pris rendez-vous pour nous et nous sommes allés acheter le fromage (excellent !!) à 15 Kms du gîte.
Our experience with Riccardo was superb. The house is in an incredible location, the space was very large, and we had a wonderful day riding Vespa's around Chianti and the best dinner at the restaurant on the farm.
Riccardo is so sweet and interesting to talk to. We encountered a train strike on the Sunday and he helped us figured out a bus and really saved the day.
If you're looking to relax in a beautiful place- stay with Riccardo!!
