Siamo stati per il giorno di Ferragosto e tutto ha funzionato alla perfezione: il posto era carino e pulito, vicino a Cortona ma immerso nel verde, Wi-Fi funzionante, quello che ci aspettavamo di sicuro c'era! Kristina è stata gentile ed ospitale, sempre disponibile, la ringraziamo!
Great place - great host. The location is easy to find with google maps. There are so many places to visit and the location is perfect.
We had a wonderful stay at Kristina’s place, located in a really beautiful and peaceful area in Tuscany, where we could really enjoy the countryside. Kristina is kind and helpful. The flat is exactly what you see in the pictures, beautiful and cosy. There’s also a table, fridge, microwave oven and dishes so we could have breakfast or a snack. I highly recommend this place, also because it is near the most wonderful villages we visited there, like Cortona and Castiglione del Lago. We definitely are going to stay there again next time we visit Tuscany.
Kristina was a great host and our stay here was amazing! The views are fantastic and the property was extremely peaceful.
Overall, Kristina and her family were extremely kind and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. I would highly recommend staying here!
Kristina's place was awesome! Really nice spot in the middle of the country - a bit tough to find, but really worth seeking out. We only interacted with Kristina at check-in but she was really helpful and recommended some places for us to go see. One of our highlights of the trip was going for a run amongst the farms surrounding the place - what a beautiful place to be! We really liked that her place was central and we could take day trips to a bunch of little Tuscan towns. I'd definitely recommend Kristina's place to anyone looking for a quite spot away from all the tourists.
Kristina was an absolutely courteous host to us. We had a very friendly welcome and she picked us up at the meeting point within 2 Minutes to show us the way to her home. The appartement is really lovely and extraordinary clean, lovely furnished with a wonderful garten which we were kindly allowed to use. She even gave us a bottle of tasty wine of the region as welcome present which we found really pleasant. We are pleased to come back again in some time.
Kristina's Place is very quiet and relaxing. Beautiful surrounding with vine yards. Without a car, it might be a bit challenging, though, that was warned in advance. In fact, Kristina kindly met me at and took me back to a train station, which was greatly appreciated. All in all, her place provided me with a pleasant and relaxing stay in beautiful Toscana.
