We had a great time in Max's place. The place was very much as described. And better! Excellent location - to enjoy the quiet countryside (and it is really beautiful in any direction), yet so close to Siena. The neighbour (Daniele) is not only very friendly, but has excellent tips for places to visit, including nearby restaurants. The restaurant "Il Ristoro" in the nearby village (Ville di Corsano - 3 km from the house) is really worth a visit. Daniele also makes and sells excellent salami. We can wholeheartedly recommend this place to others!
A comfortable and relaxing villa set in the Tuscan countryside but less than 30 mins from Sienna and within an easy drive to Florence and Pisa. The house was clean, well appointed and the booking system was very easy.
Max was very helpful when we were booking and contacted us during our stay with some ideas for things to do and to make sure everything was OK.
If I go back to the same region, I will check to see if house is available and, based on my experience, would have no hesitation recommending it to others.
The house was perfectly located in the beautiful countryside and at the same time very close to Siena (20-25 min by car). The landscapes around the house are beautiful.
Max is very nice, helpful, reactive and reliable. The neighbours are also kind and helpful people.
In the house, you find everything you need and it's very quiet at night.
The garden is very nice and it is a good place to rest.
The house is perfect for families and group of friends but it is a little bit too big for a couple =), even though we enjoyed our stay there.
sehr freundlicher gastgeber, der sich um alles gekümmert hat und jederzeit erreichbar war. das haus ist typisch toskanisch und ist sehr gut ausgestattet. wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können die unterkunft weiterempfehlen.
Nous avons passé une excellente semaine ! La maison a le charme des vieilles demeures de famille. Mais c'est dans le calme du jardin et de la cour que nous avons passé l'essentiel de notre temps.
La campagne aux alentours est époustouflante !
