My little family and I had a wonderful vacation in the house of Maria. We enjoyed the beautifully and big garden, and the very quite surroundings. The house is situated almost in side a forest – this is the feeling you get – so the nature, both plants and animals are right outside. There are several terraces outside, so it is always possible to find a spot in the sun or in the shadow. Inside the house is all you need, and everything is carefully explained in guides to help you. There was a clean atmosphere.
It was nice with all the different coffee supply, for a coffee lover like me.
We experienced twice that the electricity died - but the very friendly landlord came fast to fix it.
We would come back.
What an amazing place! It is, according to us, a tremendous place. The images show something but do not do it justice. It is maybe a the choice of the owners. But really the accomodation has everything, is spacious, fully equiped, a tremendous garden and right in a natural resort. It offers peace, quietness and complete relaxing time. Next to that it is a perfect starting point to visit the lovely Tuscany. We were welcomed by the lovely Aldo who showed us everything, explaining it in Italian and with gestures, since we do not speak Italian. He was warm, gentle and very helpful. A delight to meet him at the start and end of our stay in Sovicille. It is a place that we truely recommend to all who are looking for space, relaxation, possibility to visit the nice features of Tuscany, not too hot since in an area with a lot of trees and green. We can only say: "Waauw" and look back in admiration to this venue. Be sure that we will not forget about this place and will keep it in mind for a possible next visit to Tuscany.
We just returned from a wonderful stay here. We spent one week at this home and it was just perfect. The hosts were very helpful and filled the house with fresh flowers for us prior to our arrival. The home is very well set up with everything you need including a fantastic espresso machine - the only thing I would add is an electric or stove kettle for cups of teas (being Australian we drink a lot of tea). There was an abundance of linen which was all beautifully pressed and the home was spotless. We traveled with our 3 year old son and the hosts thoughtfully left out toys for him as well as toddler bedding, a bed, towels etc. The BBQ and outdoor area is very well set up and the garden and grounds so relaxing. We ate at home most nights as the local produce was delicious and the setting so pretty. The house is in a great area and the hosts provided us with an extensive list of local restaurants and stores so we knew how to get around. We followed their guide, discovering the best pastry shop, bakery, butcher etc for our shopping.
I would highly recommend this property for couples and families. Its very tranquil, very well organized and set up as well as being spotless. It was a pleasure to stay there and we definitely want to go back.
