Imprenditore, commerciante, affabile, molto socievole e educato.
We were 4 of us in Guilio´s appartement in Bagnolo near Impruneta and it was absolutely perfect and fabulous...if you are looking for great views, pool, calm and relaxing place, this one is the right one for you...the appartement is spacious and nice with all equipment (one bed is great, another one could be more cosy ;-)) but anyway we were happy there without any problems...Guilio and his brother Giovanni are charming, friendly and helpful and we really hope we will come back one day...another big plus is the location, nearby firenze and the whole Chianti area...LAST BUT NOT LEAST! Guilio has his own vino rosso and it is delicious, try it! As he says: It is very very nice.....checked and confirmed ;-)
We stayed at Oil Mill Anna with my friends for 4 nights.
We had a lovely time there.
Place is very nice: it's a historical building (from 1770) with wonderful views on Toscana and lovely swimming pool and terrace.
There are all necessary amenities in the building including wifi, so you can use it easily.
Location was very nice to explore Toscana - it's only 10 km from Florence.
Giulio was very helpful and gave us many recomendations.
We liked the place very much and strongly reccomend it.
We highly recommend Agriturismo I Poggi which is a few kilometers from Firenze. The landscape around the farm is just wonderful : you don't seem to be closed to a large city. We experienced a bath at sunset in the swimming pool and it was really great ! Giulio welcomed us and offered us to stay in another flat than the one which was first expected. And it was a really nice surprise as it was a large 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms flat, very clean and well equiped. Giulio and his brother Giovanni were always there to help if any question or need, always kind and cheerful. There is a large common terrace if you want to have a drink or lunch or dinner outside, we also had a little table and chairs just closed to the flat, to have a drink outside too. For alimentary shopping, Giulio indicated a supermarket (coop) in Impruneta, just a few kilometers from the farm and we also found another supermarket (Punto) in Tavarnuzze, no on the road to Firenze. In Tavarnuzze, we also needed a pharmacy and founded one there. To conclude, if you're looking for a nice place with a swimming pool near Firenze, go ahead, I Poggi is THE place...
THE PLACE WAS O.K., BUT FAR FROM WHAT WE EXPECTED; THE KITCHEN WAS VERY DIRTY WHEN WE ARRIVED, THEY HAD DIRTY DISHES IN THE MACHINE, THE COUNTER WAS DIRTY AS WAS THE FRIDGE.
THE BEDS WERE AWFULL, VERY BAD! THEY ALL HAD WIRES COMING OUT, LIKE A TORTURE BED, ONLY 2 DECENT BEDS WERE THE ONES ON THE 2ND. FLOOR.
THE POOL WAS THE GOOD PART OF THIS PLACE, VERY PLEASANT.
SO, WITH ALL THE OPTIONS AVAILABLE NEAR FLORENCE, WE WILL CERTAINLY NOT RETURN TO GUILIO!
ON TOP OF THIS, THEY PRACTICALLY THREE US OUT ON CHECK OUT DAY, VERY RUDE.
We enjoyed a lovely stay at your place, Giulio: neat appartment, great place to stay with a very enjoyable swimming pool: the pictures talk by themselves! Ideal situation to visit all around and a great help from your side to drive us to your place when we got there: this is precious! Thanks
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour chez Giulio et son frère Giovanni. L'accueil est excellent, l'appartement propre, très fonctionnel. La vue sur les collines environnantes depuis la chambre est magnifique. La piscine (grande) a fait la joie des enfants. Gros avantage : Florence à 20 min, l'accès à l'autoroute à 5/7 min. Nous vous recommandons vivement un séjour chez Giulio et nous ne manquerons pas d'y faire escale lors d'un prochain séjour en Italie.
We had a wonderful time with our 3 children by Giulio and Giovanni.
It is the perfect location for a visit of Firence. Culture in the morning and relaxing in the afternoon at the swimming-pool with a grandious view over the Toscana. The flat was very nice, clean and spacious.
L'endroit est somptueux. Nous avons eu la chance de vivre 1 an en Toscane donc nous avions déjà idée de la beauté des lieux mais ce lieu est particulièrement beau. Une vue sublime au bord de la piscine...Guilio est un homme au grand coeur, très attachant...Très accueillant. Adorable. Rien à dire. Nous recommandons vivement!!!!
Response from Giulio:
Salve Emile sono molto felice di avervi conusciuto siete veramente una famiglia eccezionale vi auguro tanta felicità e spero di rivedervi presto da noi.Un grande abbraccio Giulio.
I stayed in Oil Mill Anna with my family of three for three nights, Giulio and Giovanni are characters and were excellent hosts. The pictures on the site are true to the apartment, it is neat, clean and had plenty of room. The pool was clean and has an excellent view over the valley filled with olive groves, it is a very nice situation.
Giulio was recovering from surgery so we did not have an opportunity to eat in the restaurant, however Giovanni gave us a ride to the local market where we were able to purchase everything we needed to cook at the apartment, he even helped us pick the wine. He was also very accommodating and gave us a ride to and from the bus stop (about 2 klm) that took us in to Florence. As it is in the country you may encounter mosquitos. The only thing it is lacking is air conditioning or fans.
The brothers Guilio and Giovanni were excellent hosts--very friendly, helpful and accomodating! The appartment had everything we needed, was in good condition and was clean. The pool and the view is fantastic. A quite simple but very good Pizzeria (Nyx) and a supermarket are nearby. Florence can be reached in just 20 minutes by car (alternatively by bus). Also San Gimignano, Greve and Siena are easy to reach. Summing it up: Everyone / every family that is looking for a relaxing place with a nice pool will enjoy staying with Giovanni and Guilio. Thank you! We had a great time.
