de advertentie beschrijving was prima. Laura heeft nog een routebeschrijving toegestuurd.Goede ontvangst en uitleg over de omgeving.
Nous tenons à remercier LAURA pour son accueil souriant et chaleureux tout au long du séjour chez elle. Nous avons apprécié la chambre d'hôte ainsi que la cuisine, la salle pour les petits déjeuners très pratiques, aménagés avec des matériaux et mobiliers modernes avec goût et d'un très bon confort. Bon petit-déjeuner. Un plus pour le parking, le jardin très bien fleuri et entretenu et surtout la très belle piscine que nous avons eu la chance de pouvoir utiliser car il faisait beau. Un séjour très réussi dans cette belle région de TOSCANE.
Cher Patrick et Marie-Jo,
Je m'excuse pour ma tardive réponse.
Merci beaucoup pour votre belle revue.
J'espère vraiment que votre séjour a été agréable.

Il a eté un plaisir de faire votre connaissance et je vous donne mes meilleurs voeux pour l'avenir.
Really nice place to stay. View is fantastic and location perfect for Florence visit (20 minutes) and good departure for wine road.
Laura is a charming host.
Thank you for those few days,
My husband amd I had the most wonderful 3 days at Lauras charming bnb and its the best way to experience Chianti in all its beauty. She is the perfect host and really went out of her way to help us and make us feel comfortable. The bnb is gorgeous, amazing views of the chianti valleys and extremely well done up. The hot tub in the beige room was a delight. The entire house is brand new with state-of-the art yet aesthetic amenities. Laura served us a simple and delicious breakfast and also helped us plan activities around chianti. Its well located to visit vineyards and florence though hiring a car is highly recommended. Laura lives just next door and is truly generous and helpful. We will never forget the 3 days we spent at her bnb and will cherish the memories forever.
