We had an amazing time at Lea's apartment! The pictures don't do justice to how beautiful the location is. It was a perfect getaway in Tuscany to relax and explore. The apartment had everything we needed, plus a few special touches! It truly felt like home away from home. It was also very easy to get into Florence, and explore the area. You definitely need a car to stay here, but you need a car to really explore Tuscany as well. Lea was a perfect host and was quick with all communication. Thank you for a wonderful experience and we hope to come back again!
Todo fue perfecto. Lea y sus hijas nos dieron una gran bienvenida, con pesto y mermelada de cereza preparadas por ellas. El departamento es maravilloso: es amplio y cómodo, está muy bien equipado y el entorno es precioso, lleno de árboles y plantaciones. No me imagino un mejor lugar para conocer la Toscana!
This is exactly we we were expecting when coming to Tuscany: a wonderful flat with swimming pool right in the middle of Chianti. Our host Lea was adorable, she made sure that we were going to feel comfortable in our new home and we cannot recommend enough this place! Our best memory of the holiday will be the barbecue we had with Lea's family on sunday....that was so far one of the best moment we had, be able to connect with the locals was simply amazing... Lea's flat is very practical, clean, there is everything you need! Feel free to ask her anything about the region, she will be very pleased to help you! What else can I say...the view is amazing and if you are looking for peaceful holidays, you know where to go!
Lea gave us a really warm welcome and made us feel at home. The property was very well kept and had everything you could possibly need. The views are also amazing!! She gave us a great welcome pack which included home made pesto! Delicious! We used the pool and bbq which were both a lot of fun. Lea gave us plenty of recommendations on what to do, maps and advice which was really useful and didn't disappoint! We went to a restaurant walking distance away which had great Tuscan food at a reasonable price. Overall this is a superb place to explore all of Tuscany by car and we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
très bon accueil de Léa avec petit panier garni maison. logement conforme aux photos et situe en pleine nature magnifique ce que nous voulions avec les commodités juste à côté et florence a 12kms. le coin est parfait pour la route des vins et pour faire les villes de sienne florence et san gimignano + autres villages aux alentours. la location apporte un confort complet comme à la maison. le jardin est super et avec un barbecue privé transats.... piscine fermée à cette époque mais ne le savions. cet endroit de la piscine est très bien également. je recommande cet hôte.merci
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.
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 29 and 23 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 29 e 23 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.
Mi piace accogliere i miei ospiti in modo familiare e far trovare loro tutte le piccole cose che servono, in modo da farli sentire veramente a casa!
