Deze vakantiewoning is een indrukwekkende wachttoren die is omgebouwd tot een gezellige vakantieverblijf. Het huis is gelegen in een rustige omgeving op ongeveer 8 km van Pitigliano. De toren is verdeeld over 3 verdiepingen en heeft een oude, gesloten kelder van tufsteen. Behalve het grote privé-domein dat de toren omgeeft, kunnen de gasten beschikken over een groot en gemeubileerd terras en groot grasveld met barbecue. De toegang is via ongeveer 800 meter van de onverharde weg. De aankomst is alleen mogelijk 16-18 uur.
We (4 adults) stayed at the property in September 16. The house is situated in the countryside, about 10 km from Pitigliano. Advantage – it is very quiet and you are really undisturbed. Disadvantage- the last km is a dirt road, bumpy and with quite a few holes.
The lady in charge was very nice and accommodating
Three bedrooms come with three bathrooms which are rather well furbished. The room in the basement is nice but the window is very small, hence it is dark. The middle room has a bed and a sofa bed, so theoretically 4 people could sleep there but that would feel quite cramped. The top room is wonderful, all around are windows and it is spacious. BUT – you cannot open the windows fully as they are very big. Thus there is no breeze to be had and the room is hot, even in September we had to use a fan at night. I cannot imagine what it is like in full summer. For some people it might be important to know that the bathroom is not really separated from the bedroom as the separating wall does not meet the ceiling. AND – bring your own hairdryer and an adaptor for the socket.
Sitting room and kitchen are one room with good equipment and a fire place which was very nice as the second half of our stay was rainy. Disadvantage – the sofa is old, sunken and not comfortable. The house is advertised for 8 – if 4 people want to share a bedroom - fine. It’s fIne when you can be outside, but the sitting -kitchen-room is too small for 8 inside for a comfortable evening. Sitting arrangements outside though are nice and inviting with an oven for pizza.
One thing was really annoying:
The house comes with a swimming pool. The water is quite cool but hey – it was September .No chemicals are being used; the water is permanently pumped and filtered. We liked the idea – until we found out that the electricity bill at the end was more than 130 € for one week due to the pool! I think that tenants should be aware of this rather high extra cost. Best idea would be to include the electricity in the rent.
