Angelo und seine Frau Tiziana waren sehr gute Gastgeber. Am Ankunftsabend wurden wir sofort mit Pasta und wildschweinbraten verwöhnt. In jeder der drei Wochen, die wir in fercole verbrachten, hatte Tiziana eine kulinarische Überraschung für uns, von Kichererbsengemüse bis Zuppa di pane, die absolut überzeugend war.
Angelo hatte fast täglich einen Blick für uns und stand uns mit Rat und Tat für Unternehmungen oder interessante Orte zur Seite.
Das haus ist wunderschön, vor allem die grosse Wohnstube mit Küche hat uns sehr gefallen. Von den Zimmern war das schönste das kleine Appartment, in dem wir die letzte Woche verbrachten.
Zum Abschluß gab es dann noch Olivenöl vom Nachbarn mit auf den Weg zurück nach Aachen. Da das Wetter auch noch mit sommerlichen Temperaturen mitgespielt hat, war es eine total schöne Zeit. Empfehlenswert für alle, die an einem etwas anderen Urlaub mit "Familienanschluß" interessiert sind.
Danke Angelo und Tiziana, euer Ableger ist schon im Garten verbuddelt.
What a lovely spot in La Toscana. Peaceful, spacious and comfortable. Angelo was a gracious host who had provided us with much information on the area and a lovely chocolate cake shaped in a heart as it was our honeymoon. I would highly recommend this beautiful home as a base to expolre the Tuscan region.
Thanks to Angelo and Tiziana for being such wonderful hosts - they greeted us on our late evening arrival with dinner (Zuppa di Pane) and dessert. They also recommended several local sights/events such as a harvest celebration in Roccastrada that we would not find on our own. We were 2 families and rented the whole house for privacy - very well fitted house for our needs. The kitchen was well equpped, including a dishwasher, oven and outdoor grill . It lacks television and internet, which suited us well. The swimming pool, which is in the grounds across the street was clean and excellent to use on a warm day. We also liked the pergola and outdoor area, which is child friendly. A recommendation in the area is to visit the thermal baths in Petriolo.
All in all, I recommend this house and the hosts.
