We booked an apartment for our family of 3 adults, after seeing the reviews on TA. We chose this place for the convenience of being within walking distance of the town and not too far from the bus stop.
We found Elena's farm to be in a nice setting with a lovely view of the valley from the pool area. There's a separate under cover area on the level below where you can sit and enjoy a nice bottle of Elena's Chianti (thank you Elena for your gift of the wine). We rented the smaller apartment with a loft bedroom and a sofa bed on the lower level. It was very rustic and homely. There was a small fridge and tea & coffee facilities. Although glasses aren't provided, Elena will be more than happy to provide these if you ask her. The bathroom was modern, very clean and adequate (a hair dryer is provided).
Elena and her mother made us feel very welcome and were very helpful when ever we asked for anything. Elena even picked us up at the bus stop when we arrived which was more than helpful because we had several pieces of luggage. Thank you Elena for your fantastic service.
The breakfast provided is either a salty one of cold meat, cheese and boiled egg, or cake with homemade jams (delicious!), plus juice, fresh fruit, coffee and a selectionn of teas.
Although the walk into town is only 10 minutes away, if you are planning to stay here for a few days car hire is recommended. We found the very old town and its Square charming, with a nice selection of shops and restaurants. The Co-op supermarket nearby had a very good selection of alcoholic and food and the deli counter is particularly recommended. The staff were helpful when we explained what type of cold cuts & olives we wanted. You can also buy corkscrews in the Co-op for 1 Euro.
We enjoyed our short stay and chose the right place for its convenience.
