SWIMMING POOL IS SHARED
We stayed in a section of an old converted farmhouse - surrounded by amazing countryside and views. The farmhouse was rustic - but it was the outside that made this holiday. It was beautiful.
The views, the gardens (with wild blackberries that my daughter loved picking) the table tennis, the swing - there was so much to love!
The pool was beautiful and Gianmario was at the farmhouse every morning to clean it - so it was always very clean.
We loved the sun loungers with proper comfy cushions.
It was just an amazingly relaxing week and we would be happy to return!

About the Host, Andrea
Ciao! I love Italy and it's beauty. I live between Rome, Tuscany and Sicily and i try to do my best to make my guest's stay memorable. I love food and wine, travelling, playing guitar and sailing; this is my brand new passion!
I usually use Airbnb as a guest too and every time i do that i learn a little bit more how to make my guests/friends more at home even if there are away from home.
