“Wonderful Vacation Stay”
Reviewed November 17, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Carlo could not meet us when we called him but he made sure that his daughter, Victoria, met us (along with her grandmother) to make sure that we knew how to operate everything. She was a very charming young lady. Carlo stopped by later that evening and we spent a few minutes with him. Everyone was wonderful and the apartment had all the amenities that were necessary.

Excellent location and wonderful accommodations.

“marvelous views, excellent hospitality”
Reviewed October 4, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This room is wonderfully located in the high hills of Tuscany. The panoramic view is absolutely stunning. The pool is nice (although it was rather cold when we stayed and we did not get in). The hospitality was also wonderful, with warm, delicious home made cookies that were waiting for us upon our arrival, and willingness to address all our requests. The amenities are fair: the number of bed cloths and towels provided were limited, the kitchen was well equipped, air-condiiton and wi fi worked perfectly well.

“We'll be back”
Reviewed August 5, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The small hamlet, the region the house and especially the people made this one of our most favorite places. We are an active couple and biked every day around the region and for cyclists the region is the best. So much to see and do.but you do need a car. The nearby town of Volterra is well worth several visits as is San Gimignano.
The lovely sisters at the local supermarket just across the road helped us every day with our Italian and our hosts were the loveliest people we met on the whole tour. Carlo goes out of his way to help you and his parents are the true Italians that we all love to meet. We thank them greatly for the cherries each morning....
Great restaurant, great little bar great people....we'll be back and i'd recommend this place to anyone who loves the out doors.
Everything is clean and tidy. We had nothing to complain about...Perfect!

The apartment has everything you need. We spent a week here with our two young children. The surroundings were lovely with a fab pool we tried to get in every day. The hamlet has a local shop, cafe bar and great restaurant, we could not fault the food. Carlos and his family are very welcoming and we hope to go back when we visit Italy again.

“Excellent hospitality”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Stayed here as had previously stayed near San Gimingano .Excellent facilities, lovely surroundings, bar, restaurant, and shop nearby. About 15 mins from San Gimingano , Colle d'elsa , (supermarket) ,easy reach of Poggibonsi for Train to Florence.
Tip obtain directions to apartment as not easy to find from main road,
ideal location for Tuscan break, would highly recommend , although carlo's parents cannot speak much English , extremely friendly and helpful, enjoyed their supply of fresh home cooked biscuits upon arrival and fresh fruit (cherries) from their garden. Would happily recommend for couples/ family groups with own transport, most enjoyable stay
