Serenity in Tuscany
Left on 01/06/2011 for a stay in September 2010 | Dan & Donna Van Balkom
We stayed at this property the second week of our month long vacation in Italy. After the bustle of Rome it was a welcome respite to recharge our batteries.
The property is beautiful, nestled amongst the trees in a quiet valley at the base of the hill that the town of Rigomagno sits. If you want some tranquility and an away from it all base for your Tuscan stay then this property is fabulous. Michela is a gem and checked us in and gave us a full tour. Her mother, Maria Pia was our hero when we locked ourselves out of the apartment the first day (don't laugh, it's extrmely easy to do). Frequent guests, Ray and Sylvia were a pleasure to discuss plans with. From here we were able to easily drive to and visit Sienna, Montepulciano and Cortona. If you love wine, Montepulciano is a must see.
The nearby town of Sinalunga is convenient for groceries, ATM access etc.
Not much. A car is a necessity as there is nothing within walking distance. We cooked half our meals in the apartment but if you want to go out the nearest restaurant are in Sinalunga (not particilarly picturesque) or Lucignano (beautiful small Tuscan hill town). The weather in September was unsettled and the shaded valley stayed cool (and frequently wet), so we didn't get to try the pool.
Overall, this is a solid property and we would not hesitate to stay here on our next visit to Tuscany.
Quiet country side living
Left on 07/06/2009 for a stay in May 2007 | Italy lovers
This is a quality apartment with all one needs for a stay. It is new and clean. Being in the country side it is perfect for nature lovers. It is close to Sinalunga where you can buy great food and wines at the Supermarket. It is also close to many tourist attractions.
