    Super vacances en famille

    La propriété est très bien aménagée et très bien entretenue tous les matins par Massimo qui est à notre disposition en cas de besoin. Elle est située dans un tout petit village avec une épicerie et 2 restaurants. Il y a un terrain de pétanque public en face de l'église, à 2 pas de la résidence. C'est idéallement situé à +/-1h de Pise, Florence et Sienne et +/-30 min de Volterra et de San Gimignano. L'appartement est spacieux et frais malgré la canicule et l'absence de climatisation. Gennaro avait proposé de mettre 4 lits dans la chambre enfants pour que personne ne doive dormir sur le canapé lit du salon. C'est un peu serré dans une chambre à 4, mais c'est tout à fait satisfaisant. Tout est prévu pour un séjour agréable: draps de bains en suffisance, petites attentions de bienvenue à notre arrivée sur la table (vin, huile d'olive, passata, pâtes), prises anti moustique dans toutes les pièces, ... Il ne manque rien. Et que dire des légumes du jardin mis à disposition des hôtes. Elisabetta donne des renseignements touristique sur demande. Elle s'occupe des commandes de pain qui est à disposition à la résidence dès notre levé (car il n'y a pas de boulangerie au village). J'ai hésité à rédiger cet avis pour garder cette bonne adresse pour moi, mais vu la qualité du séjour, je n'hésiterai pas à y retourner un jour.
