Wow... this is a great appartment. Een plek om even heerlijk tot rust te komen. Heerlijke tuin direct aan een olijfbomen gaard. Met een overkapping waar je in de schaduw kunt zitten. Binnen is het echt gezellig alles is aanwezig. Douche met heerlijk warm water. Raf is heel vriendelijk en voorziet je van tips over de omgeving. Een echte aanrader, wij zouden zo weer boeken.
Piloni настоящая итальянская деревня - тишина и спокойствие гарантированы. В доме синьора Raf и синьоры Lila, где мы жили, отличные условия: отдельный вход, большая комната с собственным туалетом и душем, во дворе удобная веранда для ужина на свежем воздухе с прекрасным видом на холмы Тосканы. Мы очень благодарны синьору Raf и синьоре Lila, очень доброжелательным, гостеприимным и интеллигентным, за то время, что провели у них. От всей души желаем им здоровья и отличного урожая.
Garantiscono a Piloni il villaggio italiano reale - il silenzio e la tranquillità. Nella casa di Raf signor e signori di Lila dove siamo vissuti, le condizioni eccellenti: un'entrata separata, la camera grande con proprio gabinetto e una doccia, nell'iarda una veranda conveniente da un pranzo nell'aria fresca con una bella vista di colline di Tuscany. Siamo molto grati a Raf signor e Lila signor, molto benevoli, ospitali e intelligenti, per quel tempo che gli ha effettuato. Calorosamente li vogliamo la salute e un raccolto eccellente.
Raf's place is very comfortable, and he was very helpful himself in giving us information, a lovely man. A car is a must, and good for a couple. Has a very comfortable bed, good cooking facilities, wifi and good shower. It is off the tourist route, although we went driving each day to different areas, which meant a long drive home at the end of the day. A unique area in itself to visit.
My girlfriend and I had the most lovely time at Raf and Lila's. They are such good people who will help you with anything they can. The atmosphere is exactly what we were after, tranquil and relaxing. There spot is ideally located for exploring the Tuscan countryside as well. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic stay in Piloni, all due to Raf and Lila. They were lovely hosts, incredibly welcoming even before we arrived with helpful driving instructions. Upon arrival, they showed us to our very clean and cosy apartment overlooking the Tuscan hills! They had great advice for day trips and restaurants and finished the check-in by inviting us to join them to dinner at a local agritourismo restaurant in town, which was fantastic. Our 5 nights were a perfect break from the big cities and we would definitely recommend staying with Raf and Lila.
Loved staying at Raff Lila
so much. The place is a unique experience. We had a private dinner by a local chef. We spent hours at the hot springs and enjoyed the beauty of the country side. A great spot.
Haben eine schöne Woche im gut ausgestatteten Apartment verbracht. Die Wohnung ist top in Schuss, sehr sauber, ganz ruhig gelegen, mit Sitzgelegenheit im Garten. Die Heizung funktioniert super und ist nicht so teuer! Wlan funktioniert gut . Wir wurden sehr freundlich empfangen, Raf spricht mehrere Sprachen, hat uns Bohnen aus dem Garten geschenkt, sowie Zwiebeln und Knoblauch.Man wird bestens mit Restaurant Tipps versorgt oder auch mit Tipps für Ausflüge oder Weineinkäufe. Wichtig ist ein Auto, zum Meer wie auch nach Siena oder Pienza etwa eine Stunde Fahrt über schöne kleine Landstraßen. Der Bäcker im nächsten Ort ist hervorragend! Wir würden wieder hinfahren, super Preis-Leistungsverhältnis.
