Ciao, sono Giulia! Sarò felice di ospitarvi in Chianti o ad Alicudi. A presto!
Guilia is a wonderful host. She went out of her way to prepare us a welcoming home with lots of delicious Italian goods as gifts. The house had everything we needed for our stay and allowed us to visit the Chianti wine country, San Giminiano, Florence, Pisa and Sienna which we truly recommend. We had a true feel of what it is like to live in the Tuscany country. Just make sure to go after March so important places and wineries are open.
Really nice place, and thanks to the central heating warm even in winter. We spent four wonderful weeks in Nov/Dec with our little daughter (~ 10 months old) who loved to explore every corner of the big loft. In the ceiling there are even hooks to fasten a swing (which we bought there, because we wanted to buy one anyway).
My wife and I enjoyed hiking, especially after discovering that official hiking paths pass behind the house (you won't find many signs, though - check (website hidden)). Giulia is really nice and helpful, as the others have said here!
It was a 5 stars holidays thanks to Giulia.
We spent wonderful holidays, with the feeling of being " at home".
The house is gorgeous, 100% matching with the pictures, fully equipped including toys for our 2 and 5 years old daughters.
We enjoyed having lunch in the little garden front of the house, under the " pergola".
When we arrived, because it was late in the evening, a complementary basket of fruits, vegetables, jam, italian biscuits, as well as a Prosecco wine, was left by Giulia as a welcome gift !
Giulia is a very delicate host, taking care of her guests : in addition to the papers available at the house, she provided very useful information about restaurants, areas to visit, shops and she even found a baby sitter for us. The location of the house was perfect to visit the Chianti vineyards, enjoy the amazing landscapes and toscan villages, visit the beautiful city of Sienna.
Gracie Mille Giulia for your special care, your kindness !
Just an amazing house in an incredible landscape...
Giulia has beautifully arranged the place with great taste.
Alicudi is an experience!
What an amazing apartment we found at Giulias place! Everything
was excellent, the apartment is furnishes very tasteful, the warm welcome and her help during our stay was a gift. The nature around is amazing!
We can highly recommend Giulias place, we found a home from home!!
Giulia is an extremely friendly, generous and caring host, she gave a lot of good recommandations for any type of excursion, the house is beautiful and cozy and has everything one can think of as necessary for a great and relaxing time !
This is one holiday that I was truly emotional upon leaving. Everything about Giulia's house is utter perfection and Giulia is a more than helpful host! Our holiday involved an amazing fishing/swimming trip, dinner in local houses, soaking up the sun, and gazing at stars from the balcony at night. Big thanks to Michaela for organising so many great activities, especially the special boat ride at the end! I wiil never forget this incredible trip and hope to return next year. Thanks again Giulia. You were right 4 days wasn't long enough! All the best. Emily
Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans cette belle maison de (website hidden) situation géographique est idéale pour visiter la Toscane.
Maison spacieuse, bien décorée et bien équipée. Merci à Giulia et à son époux pour leurs conseils et les bonnes adresses.
It's a kind of magic... we enjoyed our h
oneymoon on Giulia's Casa Magica and it was exactly what we have been looking for - a place at the end of the world, incredible beautiful and silent - the perfect relaxation. All was very well organized so we felt warmly welcome and comfortable from the beginning on. Thanks Michaela - she is caring for the house on Alicudi - we got a short and smart introduction to the house and the island. Our luggage was carried by Donkey's to the house and she also supported us with our first shopping. Thank you so much for the self made cake, the bottle of wine and champaign which was waiting for us at arrival. And Michaela decorated the house wonderful atbour arrival :-) Alicudi itself is an island which I am unable to describe with words - it is a different world. I just hope that it will relast as it is for a long long time - that Alicudi will keep it's spirit and quietness aside the faster and faster turning world. We will come back for sure!
Giulia and her husband are a most charming couple and her loft is a great place to spend vacations. The pictures on the AirBnB website represent very well the warm, cozy and personal nature of her house. The nearby swimmingpool (50m away) is beautiful and clean, most of the times we were by ourselves. Giulia sent us before our arrival a lot of 'personal tips' on places to visit, restaurants etc - all the ones we visited were really good. The only 'thing' we had a little problem with were the hard tuscan beds - too hard for retirees like us. However, we found quickly a solution and had just 17 wonderful days at Giulia's place - a 'jewel' we warmly recommend. Thank you !
