Bella villa nel verde con tutte le comodità.
The house is really good and located at a nice, quiet environment. But at the same time close enough to all the Toscane highlights, so absolutely a good choice. On the other side, compared to the price, the value for money is not on par. The kitchen is very impractical (outdated) and there is no dishwasher available. The kitchen knives can easily be used by small children without the risk of being hurt. For the price of 2249 euro you would expect more!
We recommend the owner to cut some of the bushes around the house. Although you have a lot of privacy, it also prevents you from enjoying the beautiful view around the house. A pity.
A big compliment to our host, Isabel. She is very helpfull.
We would highly recommend the Casa Cipressi, it’s in a beautiful remote setting with lovely views from the entrance over the Tuscan countryside, vineyards and olive groves. We loved spotting deer in the hillside, although vineyard owners aren’t so enthusiastic, as deer nibble and damage the vines!
The large garden is a delight, and lovely to explore, it has a little pond with very noisy frogs which leap into the water when they spot you coming! The pool is well maintained with sun loungers available. There is a nice shady dining area outside the villa where we ate all our meals.
The interior of the villa is rustic but very comfortable. There are fans in all the bedrooms which was essential when temperatures crept up to 40C in June!
The villa is situated in a good position for sightseeing. Make sure to take the train from Certaldo to Firenze as it takes you to the centre of the city. We also enjoyed San Gimignano, Siena, Volterra and Certaldo Alto among others nearby.
Lovely place for a relaxing holiday, you won’t be disappointed!
Wunderschöner Garten, zum träumen und austoben. Das Haus ist perfekt für einen Toskanabesuch. Der Grill draussen ist herrlich und Certaldo in der Nähe eine wahre Entdeckung. Ganz toller Ausgangspunkt für Besichtigungen der wichtigsten Städte.
Wonderful peace and still very close to the town, which is very nice. The house and the garden are well maintained and beautiful, the garden even fantastically beautiful with its many plants and shady spots and with the great pool. We are very nice greeted and looked after and recommend the house gladly. Also for excursions it is the ideal starting point.
Sehr gemütliches Haus, perfekt für die ersten Herbsttage, denn das Haus ist so schön, dass es sich lohnt auch dort drinnen zu wohnen. Die Umgebung läd zu Spaziergängen ein und natürlich zu Stadtbesichtigungen. In Certaldi gibt es viele ganz kleine Restaurants, die fantastisches Essen anbieten. Nicht ganz billig.
This property has the most beautiful and peaceful garden, full of mature trees, and a stunning view, especially out the front of the house. It is isolated and peaceful and you need a car. The swimming pool is lovely though rather small, and is cleaned once a week. The directions for getting here are confusing and not terribly helpful. The kitchen is very well equipped though rather cramped for cooking. It is part of the open plan living area, which has very comfortable sofas and a good dining table. It is rather dark, as per old Italian houses, to keep out the heat. The terrace also has a very good dining table, though the chairs are a bit low. There are mosquitos outside at night and no anti mosquito equipment provided, though there are good mosquito nets on the doors and windows. The 3 bedrooms are all a good size and there are 3 bathrooms. The bedroom in the annexe has a small sitting area with sofa too. The wifi is intermittent and limited - ours ran out two days before the end of our holiday. The house is 15 minutes by car to Certaldo, which has a good supermarket and a lovely old town on the hill. The house is very well placed for visiting other hill towns. Altogether, we really enjoyed our peaceful stay here and would love to return.
We hebben vele uitstapjes gemaakt tijdens ons verlof maar het was altijd heerlijk thuiskomen op het vakantiehuis. Het voldeed voor de volle 100% aan onze verwachtingen qua inrichting en ligging.
