“Keeping up appearances”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Indeed, like mentioned in the other reviews: This accomodation has class and style. The problem is that this seems to be more important than the comfort of the one week residents. There is a big lack of shadow. Umbrella's are not present/forbidden since this is ruining the classy sight. Our side of the building, we were obliged to eat inside in the morning and at noon! A lot of things are forbidden, such as drying the towels near the own appartment, jumping or dyving into the water, ... They are more or less forcing you into the restaurant, where no prices are indicated, but they do have umbrella's over there.
Located near the busy road towards Volterra, no airco in the poorly furnished sleeping rooms, no mosquito netting present in the windows ...
Not our cup of tea. Let the accomodation be honest and the leasure of the tourist be the most important thing!

Room Tip: Ask for the orientation of the appartment. At what time of the day can you eat in the shadow?

La Pieve Vecchia gives you an idea of Tuscany and its beauty. Sittuated on a hill, with an amazing view is a very romantic place. On the other hand is perfect for families with children, for active recreation (tennis court) and 2 swimming pools or simply for lazy reading by the pool. My husband and I stayed there for 3 nights but every day we vere going somewhere: to Florence, Siena, Montalccino, San Gimmigiano etc. That was our plan and the reason why we have choosen this location but we definitely could stay longer, just to enjoy the place. Also if you like to spend some time at the seaside but avoid crowded curorts it would be perfect (of course if you come by car). There is a big free parking. Local restaurant is beautiful and has perfect service but I don't really recommend the food. You can find better cuisine in nearby villages. Also our appartment was fully equiped with everything you need to prepare a dinner by yourself. There is even a floor heating in the bathroom. By the way, our bathroom was decorated with beautiful tiles from Valentino home collection. One more thing: we arrived quite late so the reception was already closed but there was a map left for us so that we could easily find our appartment and the key was left in the door. It's a fantastic place!

Room Tip: The ground floor is much better, you can open the french doors and enjoy a morning coffee or evening...
