Interaction with Guests
We'll follow our guests needs closely and with the help of our cousin Giuseppina. She'll check you in, show you the house and take care of all your needs. You can even arrange a special Tuscan dinner prepared by her, she's a special cook!
The medioeval village of Cennina is located on an airy hill (500 m high) in a strategic position, 30 minutes from Siena or Arezzo and 45 min from Florence. It's only a five minutes walk from the cottage. In the neighbourhood there are plenty of lovely typical villages and small towns, that are worth visiting, as well as extraordinary wine estates.
You can either arrange for the classic wine tasting tour in the Chianti Classico, starting from Castel Nuovo Berardenga, a 20 minutes drive from Cennina, or choose the alternative local Chianti dei Colli Aretini wine tasting tour with a choice of tens and tens of small delicious producers.
Please note that the only option to reach the cottage and to get around is by car.
Please note the €50 fee for final cleaning to be paid cash on arrival.
We expect our guest to respect the place as if it were their own, to leave it as they found it and to be honest and tell us if anything went wrong (on both sides).
Nice little house for two, clean and comfortable. Great view and very quiet environment. Great hikes in the mountains nearby. Perfect location to visit cities nearby.
The reservation process went well, Filippo answered all of our questions very quickly. His mother welcomed us and showed us around. The guest book provided in the house was very useful.
Very nice cottage an easy to find. When we arrived in Cecinna, Lilia alreaded expected us and explained everything in the buidling. We found the appartment clean and cozy - the pictures tell the real story.
The area is very calm and just a perfect place to relax. Perfect stay.
Nous avons été très bien reçu par Lilia dans cette charmante (PETITE) maison qui est parfaite pour deux personnes .
par contre cette maison était très très froide en cette période de fin d'année et le chauffage était beaucoup trop faible pout rendre la maison confortable.
heureusement Lilia nous a fourni du bois pour la (petite)cheminée qui nous a un peu réchauffé.
bonne destination pour les beaux jours mais a déconseiller en hiver
We had a very pleasant stay at the Five Oaks Cottage! The welcome was warm and well organized. The house was exactly as described and equipped with everything we needed. It is a very comfortable and cosy place, perfect for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. In the neighbourhood there are good restaurants and lots of shopping facilities, you can have walks for hours around Cennina and the interesting cities of Tuscany are easy to reach by car. We hope we can visit this wonderful place again. Thank you very much Filippo!
The cottage was very cosy and clean, and in a quiet area. We were welcomed by Filippo's cousin who was very helpful and made us feel welcome.
The town is about half an hour drive from Sienna, and an hour from Val d'Orcia, which both made for good day trips.
Filippo was also very easy to contact - both before and after our stay.
Our stay in the Five Oaks Cottage was truly lovely. A perfect little space with everything you need for a week relaxing in the Tuscan countryside and seeing the local sights.
Cennina is a picturesque little settlement at the top of a hill, so great views and walks straight from the cottage.
Filippo was very helpful directing us to a local tyre repair place (look out for potholes on the local roads!) and check in and check out was warm and helpful.
Would love to go back some day and already miss our little cottage for the week!
Wer Erholung und Ruhe braucht, für den ist das Cottage genau richtig. Es liegt in wunderschöner Landschaft und lädt zum Relaxen ein. Das Cottage ist zweckmässig eingerichtet und es ist alles für einen angenehmen Aufenthalt vorhanden. Die Küche ist mit einem Gasherd ausgestattet, das Wifi funktioniert ausgezeichnet.
Da das Cottage ziemlich abgeschieden liegt, ist ein Auto zwingend erfordelich. Zur nächsten Einkausmöglichkeit und Restaurant fährt man ca 10 Minuten.
Filippo und auch seine Mutter sind unglaublich nette und hilfsbereite Gastgeber, die einem jederzeit mit Rat und Tat zur Seite stehen.
Wir können das Cottage für ruhige Ferien in der wunderschönen Toscana nur empfehlen!!!

I respect nature and don't like to pollute it.
I think we're all linked and we do not exist only as mere individuals.
I'm honest and respectful, I like others to be the same.
If you come and stay with us we'll be glad to give you hints about the city and how to live it.
