The Space

The area called La Valtiberina, on the eastern edge of Tuscany, is an attractive hilly landscape with woods of chestnut trees and fields for pasture, and offers, due its combination of art, history and nature, an image of a Tuscany still barely touched by mass tourism, yet full of medieval and renaissance art treasures. In this area were born two of the greatest Italian renaissance artists: Piero della Francesca and Michelangelo. Just 5 km from the village Caprese Michelangelo, where the artist who created the frescoes in the Sistine Chapel was born, lies La Radicata, surrounded by private, terraced grounds, with a marvelous panorama of the lake at Montedoglio and of the hills around it, offering absolute privacy and peace and quiet. This attractive stone farmhouse has been renovated to perfection, furnished comfortably and with taste, with ample external areas furnished for relaxing and dining outside, with a marvelous view: there's a courtyard, a pergola with BBQ area and wood-burning oven for bread and pizza, a terrace and, on the highest level, a nice furnished and fenced swimming-pool (12x5 m). This is an ideal place for a holiday in natural surroundings, for walking, bike-rides, or trips to the art towns, in an atmosphere of total relaxation. The last kilometer before arriving at the house is along a narrow, cement road uphill.

  • We had a few issues with the woman overseeing the apartment from slow response time to claiming we paid partially and now owe additional funds. All eventually got sorted out and we enjoyed our stay. The apartment is beautiful and well located. It's a shame we felt uncomfortable with how we were treated.

  • We loved staying at Mark & Bonnie's place in Sonoma. Everything was great and perfectly located for our needs. Fall in Sonoma is beautiful in it's own right, but this quiet getaway allowed us to enjoy it even more.

  • Great location as a home base for wine country excursions. Near the Historic Sonoma Town Square by way of the town's paved walking path - perfect spot to enjoy good restaurants, scenic hiking, local wineries and cycling. Just a few miles from the Russian River so kayaking is an easy option as well. Gateway to the Sonoma Valley, short drive up to the Alexander Valley, Napa Valley and Carneros Wine Region. Your own 1 bedroom place, with a furnished kitchen, wi-fi, a designated parking spot and a private back patio perfect for starting the day with your morning coffee. It looks just like the pictures!

  • Our stay at Rialto was brilliant from beginning to end. We especially appreciated Judit assistance in meeting us to hand over the keys she went much further than required and gave us lots of advice on our stay and how best to get back to the airport. This was fantastic as we had no idea without this advice .The accommodation was ,clean comfortable and centrally located. We felt secure and had easy access to market Rialto bridge and short walk to San Marco square. the apartment was attractive with plenty of bedding and towels ..The washing machine and dishwasher were a bonus. The apartment was large,spacious attractively decorated and made our visit to this beautiful location all the more enjoyable. We thank Judit Mark and Bonnie for such great stay in Venice
