Even though I did not see Paola in person, Elisabeth helped us with everything we need. There was a huge basket of fresh fruits and a bottle of nice wine waiting for us. The small kitchen has everything we needed.
The place is very homing with planty of spaces for the four of us. The location could not be better for our daily visit to the Tuscany cities. The view is unbelivable from each window and from the front yard or the terreced yard in the back. We enjoyed the place very much and hope to come back in the future.
We spent 6 days in this beautiful location. The setting is spectacular. We were made to feel very welcome by Elisabetta (the key holder). There was a lovely basket of fruit, a cake and a bottle of wine waiting for us. It is a wonderful place to explore Tuscany from and we would really recommend it. We were expecting to be driving around more but it was just lovely to spend time in the house and going on some walks locally.
Paola's apartment in Tuscany is a perfect place to visit places like Siena and for resting in a beautiful region. The scenery is beautiful and unique, the feeling of peace is great. The apartment is very comfortable, clean and spacious, we were a family of 6 adults and two children and the space was perfect.
We were welcomed by Elisabetta, who was very friendly and always willing to help us. Communication with Paola, was always excellent. We greatly appreciate the hospitality of Paola. We very much appreciate the fruit basket and local Chianti and other local products that you invited us to discover. We strongly recommend the apartment and hope to return one day.
Paola was great. Very responsive and accessible if needed. She provided great directions and promptly followed up to email, text messages or a phone call. The home is Tuscany was a gem. In fact, it's probably one of the best kept secrets. The views on your private terrace are incredible. We didn't want to leave and will plan on going back as soon as possible.
Wir reisten zu viert und wollten in der Mitte der Toskana für eine Woche eine Unterkunft, von wo aus wir die Region erkunden konnten. Zudem wollten wir auch selber kochen, uns wohlfühlen, einfach sein. Paolas Haus war hierzu ideal. Das Haus ist ein Teil einer kleinen "Siedlung" mit ca. 10 Parteien, die aber vor allem am Wochenende anwesend zu sein schienen. Alles sehr dörflich, rundum Landwirtschaft. Wir wurden persönlich willkommen geheissen und im Haus fanden wir alles, was wir brauchten. Da wir unsere Reise von Tag zu Tag organisierten, waren wir aufs Internet angewiesen, was auch nach einem Hilfe-Telefon klappte. Die Toskana ist ein unglaublich schönes Reisegebiet, und Paolas Landhaus ist genau der richtige Ort, um die Grosszügigkeit der Landschaft einzufangen.
First, I appreciate Paola´s promp reactions to my questions and requests prior to and during our stay at her place, which facilitated our journey. Thank you Paola.
The place itself, as written in the comments before, provides a unique opportunity to get a feeling of magnifiscent and idiosyncraticfeatures of Toscani, which could hardly be the case if we had chosen to stay in Siena. That was a real advantage of the place. It is about 20 km far from Siena, but it is worth having both, the beauty of the town during the day and the quiet and breathtaking Toscani nature in the evening.
The place itself is a spacious, two storey apartment attached to other appartments with their own inhabitants (we didn´t see much of them though). Everything was clean and ready for our stay including all basic groceries we could have used, which I think is very generous. There were plenty of towels for us and the bedrooms were very nice and comfortable. We stayed with two kids and they already miss the place (and the horse in one of the fields nearby). Simply, the atmosphere of the whole place, the way if is built in the countryline makes it worth visiting.
Paola is making all the effort to make her guests comfortable and welcome at her place and I believe that all she can do is to keep on doing it the same way. If you want to see Toscani, this place is an excellent choice.
