Casa colonica del 1700, ampio giardino con piscina, inserita nell'antico borgo di S.Cristina a Pancole. Molto confortevole, rilassante e ricca di suggestioni. Casa, giardino e piscina esclusivi per gli ospiti. Ampia vista e assoluta privacy.
Very old rural house with lots of character. Pool very cool for hot Italian days. House has no air con but is not hot and sticky - shutters and thick old walls keep it cool. Need car as no shops or bars near by. Central for lots of well known towns and cities. Bring mosquito products as lots around due to trees but same in other Tuscan areas
Beautiful location, big house, perfect with little dog as ground is fenced, super outdoor shower, view from pool is amazing! The house is a bit worn down, you will find spider nets, Moskitos and bit of not fitting things here and there, it somehow adds to the charme. The old wood beams house some dust but are mice as well. Be aware of quite some stairs in the house in case you need barrier free travelling.
The best part of our short stay were the stunning views across the hills of Chianti. We never tired of it. The house itself was beautiful, full of character and very well supplied for everything we needed (5 adults). Raimondo was very helpful and we especially enjoyed the tour of the winery. Mosquitoes are a problem but as long as you're prepared they're easily managed. The only other problem was that we didn't stay long enough!
Raimondo was a nice host. With that said, probably not the right choice for my family as we only stayed one out of 3 nights booked. Mosquitoes are a real problem and the lack of defending the interior of the house is what was problematic. It was very hot and no air conditioning or fans added to our reason for leaving. Partially to blame is the weather. It was HOT. Lack of tight screens to keep bugs out with no air conditioning made it a tough night. Pool is above ground. Lots of other good reviews but I wished I would remembered to look for A/C and really take note of what other reviews stated.
