"Very kind owners."
"The owners (S. and P.) are very considerate and always available. The accomodation was good. Everything was there, in good use. The bed was a bit "kreeky", but overal it was oke. The satelite decoder reset everytime We didnot know what do. But tv is not so important during an holiday. There was almost no noise outside, we liked that. The environment was really beautiful, real tuscany! We had a bit of a problem with the opening hours of the shops in s.casciano. The train was not far, so we could go anywhere we want by train.(first 20min by car). The house temperature is cold, we turned it every night on. But with the hot weather outside we were glad it was so cold inside. We only missed a place to sit outside. But overal, it felt like Tuscany!"
"c'est un bel appartement au cœur d'un beau village médiéval. Il est spacieux, meublé avec goût et simplicité. Il est bien équipé (hormis le sommier à ressort du lit de la chambre qui est un peu ancien). Les hôtes sont très aimables et au petit soin. Il est bien situé par rapport aux sites culturels de l'Ombrie et du sud de la Toscane. Toutefois, la voiture est indispensable. "
"rien à dire, c'était parfait"
"Trés satisfait de notre séjour et de l'acceuil des propiétaires. Cette région est magnifique, le village est parfaitement placé pour visiter les nombreux endroits touristiques du sud de la Toscane"
