Franco was a wonderful host - he always responded quickly and in a very friendly way. He welcomed us very warmly and helped finding the (adventurous) way to the apartment. Once known, the way was easy to remember and should work for every car.
The apartment is beautifully located. We recommend breakfast/dinner in the garden. the view over Cascine Di Buti is very stunning. The apartment was clean, Grazia and Franco had prepared everything we needed, including tea/bread for a small breakfast for the first day.
Cascine di Buti is well located for day trips to Lucca, Siena, Pisa. Some supermarkets and a gas station are located within 5 min.
What we'll miss the most: Franco's cats, dogs and the little guinea pig.
We had a very enjoyable stay in a lovely location, with helpful and kind hosts!
Notre séjour à la casa belvédère a été super, nous avons été accueilli très gentiment, l'appartement est vraiment chouette, beau et fonctionnel avec plein de petites attentions délicates pour notre arrivée, des gâteaux, du café et du thé, des fruits, et la vue est vraiment belle, au dessus de la ville avec les sons de la nature tout autour et plein d'animaux dans la propriété, des chats et deux chiens sympas qui sont très obéissants!
Je recommande vivement.
I would recommend this place to anyone! It is a really nice, quiet spot in beautiful Tuscany. For everyone who likes a nice, clean apartment on a green hill full of olive and other trees this is the ultimate. Everything Franco writes is absolutely true and the pictures will tell enough. There is enough space for everyone and he and his family is always there to answer your questions. Do not hesitate, just book this one ;).
Der Aufenthalt bei Franco und seiner Familie war einfach grandios! Ein perfekt sauberes Apartment mit allem was man zum Leben braucht, und sollte mal was fehlen, dann ist Franco immer zur Stelle und bietet seine Hilfe an!
Die Ankunft ist dank der guten Wegbeschreibung ein leichtes - man erlebt sogar ein Abenteuer, wenn man von Franco abgeholt wird und den Schotterpfad zu seinem Haus hinauf fährt (Bitte keine tiefergelegten Autos :) )! Eine absolut schöne Aussicht erwartet jeden Gast und ein warmes Willkommen aller Haustiere - besonders Marta mag einen festen Krauler!
Wir waren sehr aktiv und waren nur morgens und abends zuhause, aber wir hatten in dieser Zeit immer unsere Privatsphäre und konnten die wundervolle Terrasse und den Ausblick genießen.
Am letzten Tag wurden wir durch die tollen Tipps von Franco noch mit einem Olivenbäumchen und tollen Mitbringseln versorgt!
Und wer abends ganz leise ist, hört "Für Elise" aus dem Haupthaus schallen. Leider konnten wir kein Olivenöl bei Franco kaufen, aber das holen wir nach, wenn die Saison gut läuft :)
Alles in allem ein perfekter Aufenthalt mit wirklich bezaubernden Gastgebern! 1+ mit Auszeichnung! Empfehlenswert!
We had a wonderful stay at Franco's beautiful home. It's such a great location for day trips in Tuscany (close to Florence, Pisa, and a ton of lovely little towns), although we did make sure to return by sundown to avoid navigating the very narrow and windy local roads in the dark! The apartment is very clean and well equipped and had everything we needed. There were grocery stores and shops nearby, as well. Gorgeous views, a cozy apartment, and kittens running around the yard - what's not to love! :)

About the Host, Franco
Me, my wife Grace and my daughters Sara and Zoe, live in the house that we renovated recently and where we welcome people in a separate apartment.
Life here is very nice although a bit 'hard, we live in close contact with nature, cultivating olive trees and we work for the maintenance of the house and garden / woods.
We made a choice for ecological restoration work: we heat with wood that we cut into the wood, producing hot water with solar heat and electricity with photovoltaic panels, we treat our waste with the wetlands, and we isolated with cork the roof of the house and ecological paints used for painting.
We are now beginning to offer hospitality with the excitement of sharing and exchange that has always characterized our own path oriented to solidarity, happy decrease and ecology.
I love to know people of different culture, music is my passion, my daughters play piano from many years, we love cinema and theatre, we love travel around the world but we can't so much because our house needs of us everyday..
