De eigenaresse stond altijd voor ons klaar, heel attent zonder opdringerig te zijn. Het heeft ons hier aan niets ontbroken. Zij heeft er zeker aan bijgedragen dat ons verblijf hier zo aangenaam is geweest. - Dit onderkomen is te mooi om waar te zijn. Het ligt fantastisch centraal in de Toscane. Vanuit de voortuin kijk je zo in het dal waar Florence ligt. - Het zwembad, dat net als het hele onderkomen brandschoon was, bracht aan het einde van de middag bij thuiskomst een heerlijke verkoeling. - Het was een genot om 's morgens in de ruime, zeer goed onderhouden tuin te ontbijten.
Accueil formidable et très très chaleureux de la part de Léa. Nous sommes arrivés tard, fatigués par la route et un paquet de pâtes nous attendait avec une sauce de sa préparation... Quelle délicate attention !
La maison et son jardin sont entourés de vignes. Il y a de nombreuses caves de Chianti à visiter à proximité.
La campagne alentour est splendide, reposante et Florence n'est qu'à 15 km.
La maison est très sympathique et très propre avec une grande cuisine toute équipée et tout un tas de petites choses bien pratiques...
Merci Léa !
My boyfriend and I really loved staying at Lea's. The setting is so peaceful, with amazing views from the garden looking out over the hills of Tuscany. You can even see the dome of Florence in the distance.
The flat is very well equipped, with a fantastic kitchen and a big dining table. Lea gave us some home-made pesto on arrival, and was so helpful and accommodating throughout our stay, as were her two daughters. We loved having our own private pool, and having a shaded space to park the car was a bonus too.
The apartment is located near to a small village, and there are some nice restaurants within walking distance. It's also the perfect base for exploring the Chianti region.
We would highly recommend staying at Lea's!
Lea was very helpful in her communication and waited up for us even though we arrived late at night. The apartment was clean and very well equipped. The garden and surrounding area was great and looked exactly like the pictures. A very nice place!
We really had a great time staying at this place. The surroundings are so beautifull. Especially the view from the apartment and the view from the pool are nice. Waking up between the vine- and oliveyards is what you want in Tuscany and this is what you get!
Lea is really personal and helpfull. At arrival she had given us the ingredients to make a nice pasta and we got homemade confiture.
The apartment accommodates everything you need. The kitchen is complete, the bed is ok, the living is nice and cosy and the bathroom is clean. Also the car could be parked beneath a carport so it stays cool.
We recommend staying here if you want to have a relaxed time in Tuscany. A car is needed to experience the best of the region.
About the Host, Anna Maria Lea
I'was born in Florence, but I like so mauch the country life! I've been living in this house since 1987. The house was several time modified during these years and most of the times it was mostly me and my partner to work on it. This was also to adapt the house to our growing family, with our two daughters now of 27 and 22 years old.
I worked for many years with childrens and education. I thought yoga and areobic and I have always been working on personal relations (counselling etc). I enjoy cooking (mainly dishes from our land), I bake cakes, make homemade jams and I enyoy taking care of our vegetables and trees in the garden. I love reading and writing.
My younger daughter is a dancer, she studies at the university and (email hidden).
My older one is mostly working outside of Italy, studying languages.
I speak a little english and french.
Vivo in questa casa dal 1987 e l’appartamento è stato più volte ristrutturato e adattato alla famiglia, con l’arrivo delle due figlie, ora di 27 e 22 anni.
Ho lavorato molti anni con i bambini nelle scuole dell’infanzia, ho insegnato yoga e ginnastica dolce, e ho sempre lavorato nel campo delle relazioni sociali. Mi piace cucinare (soprattutto cucina toscana), faccio dolci e marmellate fatte in casa; mi piace fare l’orto, leggere e scrivere.
Mia figlia più giovane studia all’Università, lavora da barista ed è una danzatrice per passione
Mia figlia maggiore è una giramondo (website hidden) invece parlo un po' d'inglese e di francese.
