Customer Reviews

Overall:
This was a wonderful experience. Ricardo, Sandra and Simona were always helpful and responsive. They helped us work on our Italian language skills with a smile always.
Enjoyed Most:
The location.
Enjoyed Least:
The steps up to the pool.
Surrounding Area:
We wanted to feel like we were truly living a normal life and the proximity to supermarkets and other shops that one uses on a daily basis enabled us to do so. The ride to Siena and Florence by car, bus or train was extremely convenient.
Nearby Events or Locales:
San Gimignano--not within walking distance.
Directions:
The real difficulty was in getting out of the Florence airport area. We did not use a GPS or get coordinates. The Si-Fi-Pisa road is the one to use.

Ellen, June

Overall:
Good. The people there were very accommodating and helpful. Their English was good and they seemed very thoughtful.
Enjoyed Most:
Quiet. Old converted Abbey school. Well kept up and clean. Old world grandeur.
Enjoyed Least:
Two-edged sword. You have the beauty of where it is located but you also have a twisting gravel road to get there. The "oven" was a microwave and the coffee pot was percolator type that we found insufficient to make a good cup of coffee. Luckily, by the third day we found a coffee shop a few miles away. Since they only serve dinner Tues, Fri, and Sat, you have to eat in the other nights. Stove was OK, but restricted to frying and boiling. Going to San Gimignano for dinner meant driving over those back roads in the dark - didn't think that was a good option after a carafe of wine.
Surrounding Area:
Beautiful scenery right out the window. Be warned - no screen windows. You can figure that out!
Nearby Events or Locales:
San Gimignano - Definitely not within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Spend the extra - get an automatic transmission and a GPS. Italian drivers are scary. You have to have a car to use this facility. Be prepared to spend big bucks eating out.
Check In Out:
They let us check in early and were ready and waiting to assist us both in and out.

David, October

Overall:
I would stay here again and recommend it.
Enjoyed Most:
Peace and quiet, views, and the overall quality of the apartment.
Enjoyed Least:
I would prefer to have something better than a microwave oven to cook with. I have never used one and don't want to learn.
Surrounding Area:
Perfect countryside and very well positioned for excursions.
Nearby Events or Locales:
San Gimignano
