We arrived to a fire in the stove, a bottle of wine and a smiling host; what more could you ask for?! Lovely little village and a wonderful cosy space, just watch your head in the bed and make sure you are prepared for narrow Italian roads. Great place for a quiet, relaxing getaway.
We had a great time on Ferdinano's place.
If you're searching a peaceful cosy appartment, perfectly located to visit Tuscany, this is the place.
Even in the winter, going for a walk in Pontepetri is really cute.
The appartement is as Ferdinando described it; cosy, well done decorated and as this magic "I don't don't what" that makes you feel at home.
Ferdinando was also a great host. Carring about us to be sure we feel confortable. We couldn't expect better for our first time in Tuscany and with airbnb.
Hope I can soon go back!
It was a pleasure! The flat was as told a cosy, nice furnitured one - there is everything you need to live: A well-assorted kitchen and a warm fireplace for cold autumn evenings. Ferninando was a great host, always cared about us and made us feel like home. We recommend the sleepy village too, because there its wonderfully calm and after a day you feel like as you lived there for ever. For good, regional food you have to try Alle Panche!
Ferdinando and his mother welcomed us around 20.00 in the evening. This was by far the best appartment we've stayed. It was comfy and we felt at home immediately.
All the essentials we're available in the house. We had milk, coffee, tea, pasta, wine, and many other things.
The appartment is located in a very small town in the hills in Tuscany. We've had lunch and dinner in the local restaurant and the pizza's we're amazing. The locals even treated us as 'family'. We felt at home here.
As you can see from the pictures: it is very rustic and views of the mountains are nice.
Lucca, Firenze/Florence, Pistoia, Pisa, and Siena are all close (within 1-1.5 hours driving) and Ferdinando told us where to park (free) or easiest way to reach (car/metro/train).
I will definitely come back to this appartment: either for a week of complete rest or as a perfect retreat to visit the major Tuscan cities.
Ferdinando, thanks for having us!
Tom, I'll wait to go skiing at Abetone.
We stayed at Ferdinando's apartment for two nights. The apartment is located in a hill top village that has a few basic amenities (small shop, cafe & bakery). The apartment itself is small but very nicely decorated with everything you would need to be able to cook. We enjoyed the balcony looking out to the mountains.
The only issue for us was the lack of WiFi. Once we arrived Ferdinando explained the WiFi was actually in the local cafe up the road.
This was a nice place with a host who was very easy to deal with. Would recommend.
Ferdinando was great. He met us at the apartment and showed us how everything worked. The apartment is great for a couple and very well equipped. Its clean and tidy and really cosy -bring a book and read by the fire or enjoy the views from the balcony.
The area is great for hiking and very scenic.
Everything was perfect! Ferdinando and his mamma were very very kind with us. They gave all we needed and more! The was very cozy and Breakfast was very generous. 100% recommended!
Ferdinando & Felicia Leparulo – augustus 2014
At Fernando and Felicia, we arrived in a real Italian home in Monsummano Terme, which was a great experience to us. We felt immediately a warm welcome. When we arrived, Felicia, the mother of Fernando offered us a real Italian pasta meal for lunch.
We had the biggest room and a big bathroom, all very clean and wel decorated in nice colours. In the evening we could sit on the veranda with candles and listen to the sounds of Tuscany.
Our 3 day’s stay at their big family home gave us a very good insight in their Italian way of life. Every morning Fernando baked a delicious cake with fresh figues from there own garden. From their place we could easily drive to Lucca, Florence, Pisa and in the mountains to Barga.
As a tip of Fernando, we experienced the best Italian coffee and chocolate in Mansummano Terme. It was really delicious.
We had a great time, feeling so welcome and free to do what we wanted to do at our time. Even when we wanted breakfast later than planned.
Thank you Fernando & Felicia for having us into your home. We like to come back and stay with you once again.
Jos and Hannah
Abbiamo trascorso 10 giorni fantastici, il monolocale di Ferdinando e' veramente una chicca... Pace, tranquillità e l'atmosfera romantica sono sensazioni che si sentono appena entri e ti fanno sentire veramente bene.. Il terrazzino domina tutto il paesino e si vive intensamente in qualsiasi ora del giorno.. Consigliato per chi vuole passare qualche giorno in tranquillità ma anche godere dei bellissimi posti naturalistici nei dintorni.. Ferdinando e' una persona splendida.. Una sola parola BELLISSIMO
Grazie Nadia per aver apprezzato la mia casa e aver colto l'energia che ho impiegato per renderla speciale ed accogliente! Sempre ben venuti ... :-D
We stayed at Ferdinando's beautiful house for three nights. We made our reservation on very last minute but Ferdinando answerd very quickly and her sister very kindly even came to pick us up from the train station.
They welcomed us to their home, were very helpful and treated us like we were their own family. We had such a great time!
The location is just perfect if you want to get out of the tourist zone still near for all the main cities of Tuscany.
Thank you Reetta, Graziella was very happy to be helpful, more than welcome anytime ! :)
Ferdinando is a great guest. kind, polite, quiet and respectful person, for us were a pleasure to meet him and would definitely recommend him highly as guest to airbnb community, and shall he returns in the future. Thanks Shapan
E' stato un ottimo ospite
Ospite discreto, ha utilizzato la casa solo per dormire, assolutamente raccomandabile.
Anni fa mi hanno presentato Ferdinando ad una festa e oggi siamo ottimi amici. Sono stato ospite da lui molte volte nella sua casetta in montagna e mi ha sempre fatto star bene. La casa è una bomboniera, nel vero senso della parola, ma c'è tutto quello che si desidera.. relax.. passeggiate montane fra sentieri.. alla ricerca di funghi, mirtilli, frutti di bosco o castagne tutto questo quando è la loro stagione.. e la neve è un incanto da favola.. e il rientro nella sua casetta un bijoux.. e Ferdinando un ottimo ospite..
..grazie Ferdi sei forte!!!
