How can I even start?! Kristina is adorable and so her apartment! It's clean, beautiful decorated, with a good bed and sheets very very confortable. The window's view is incredible, Tuscany painted right in front of you, so close that you can taste it.
Amazing experience and don't you worry about the location to find, just use a GPS! We found it so easily and even at night we could find without any trouble every single day after our Tuscany adventures.
You absolutely need a GPS to find this lovely room.
We loved our stay in Kristina's studio. Lovely quiet spot in the Tuscan hills, and Kristina was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Would definitely recommend!
This is just a perfect place to stay! I can highly recommend it! And Kristina is a very good host! We enjoyed our stay so much!
Great! Kristina's place is lovely, very clean and spacious. Plus at night you will enjoy the sky full of stars and in the morning you will wake up to a picture perfect view of Tuscany.
We had an absolutely lovely stay at this wonderful and very pretty (and clean!) apartment. (The little veranda and adjoining garden are fantastic and the view spectacular!)
Kristina and her David were both very welcoming and always had pieces of advice when needed. We were also one of those people that weren't able to find the apartment right away and yes- David came and picked us up even though it was very late at night.
This place is absolutely worth visiting!!!
This was a perfect place for us to escape from the busy world of traveling and 100% feel like a home away from home. We enjoyed the apartment so much we didn't go out exploring like we thought we would. It was so clean and comfortable. The bedroom is spacious enough to lounge around reading and watching movies on our iPad. Then a few steps to the outside alfresco where we could sit and enjoy wine looking over a very pretty Tuscan hill - let alone the olive trees. October was a very green time of year to visit, even though it was overcast and rained the place was beautiful. Kristina is a great host and obviously pays a lot of attention to detail in keeping the apartment clean (the bathroom was especially impeccable!). We couldn't have asked for a better place for a weekend of rest and relaxation.
Lovely, clean, tastefully decorated room in a picturesque setting. We only stayed one night but really appreciated the very comfortable bed and proper hot showers!
Kristina's place is wonderful! My friend and I stayed at Kristina's place for one night last week. We couldn't meet Kristina in person but her family were all very kind and helpful. Her house, the decor is just lovely and the view is so beautiful. We enjoyed our time biking and walking around. This is a perfect place for get away. I highly recommand.
Everything was perfect!! Navigated our way to the train station and used Christina's written map to get the rest of the way to the apartment. We were 30 min early and David was still able to meet us 5 minutes later. Location was amazing and we couldn't have asked for more (so quiet). Would stay again, and again, and again!!!!
