Wonderful apartment

January 2, 2008

Our family of 3 stayed in this lovely apartment last summer. We enjoyed its wonderful location, and medieval charm. It is very comfortably furnished with cooking utensils, linens, etc., even a washing machine. The apartment stays wonderfully cool, even on hot summer days. It is within walking distance of the Fonteverde Spa, and comfortable driving distance to many Tuscan hilltop towns. The owners are very responsive and helpful.

"The owners (S. and P.) are very considerate and always available. The accomodation was good. Everything was there, in good use. The bed was a bit "kreeky", but overal it was oke. The satelite decoder reset everytime We didnot know what do. But tv is not so important during an holiday. There was almost no noise outside, we liked that. The environment was really beautiful, real tuscany! We had a bit of a problem with the opening hours of the shops in s.casciano. The train was not far, so we could go anywhere we want by train.(first 20min by car). The house temperature is cold, we turned it every night on. But with the hot weather outside we were glad it was so cold inside. We only missed a place to sit outside. But overal, it felt like Tuscany!"

"Il raggiungere l'incantevole San Casciano dei Bagni, rimasto indenne nel tempo da sviluppi urbanistici, costituisce di per sé un'esperienza arricchente per l'occasione, ormai rara, di âvedereâ che cos'è la natura nel suo aspsetto reale, dove la presenza umana è finalmente discreta, rara e ben inserita nel contesto. La mrfologia tormentata della zona è talora addolcita da bochi estesi per chilometri e talora quasi ostile nella crudezza delle cret esenesi. Attraversaare il paese per raggiungere l'appartamentino e scaricare i bagagli è un'esperienza singolare che richiede tassativamente un'automobile piccola e buone capacità di guida per superare alcuni passaggi difficoltosi nella strettisima stradina da percorrere: in macanza di queste condizioni è necessario portare i bagagli a mano per circa 200 metri pal parcheggio esterno al paese. In entrambi i casi ci si tuffa in un soggiorno dall'atmosfera tutta particolare. L'abitazione, di antica costruzione in pietra come tutto il paese, ha mantenuto le caratteristiche rustiche della casa toscana pur nel suo recente restauro di buon gusto: travi di legno nei soffitti, pavimenti in cotto rosso, finestre piccole senza persiane (forse oportuno aggiungere le tendine, visto che la privacy è di gran moda!). L'arredamento è funzionale per le attuali abitudini di vita, dalla moderna cucina a vista all'ampio bagno dotato di tutto; un efficiente impianto autonomo di riscaldamento consente di fronteggiare eventuali problemi dovuti all'inclemenza del tempo. Nn c'è panorama, ma un suggestivo scorcio sulla piccola porta di città dela vicina cinta muraria. La silenziosità, infine, è l'ltima apprezzabile qualità da segnalare, unitamente all'estrema pulizia della stradina e di tutto il paese. "

"Un joli village, tranquille et animé (au mois d'août), bien placé pour visiter le sud de la Toscane; un logement propre, confortable, aménagé avec goût; des propriétaires discrets et très sympathiques. Notre seul regret, que le logement manque d'une chambre pour y revenir avec des amis; nous ne manquerons pas toutefois de le conseiller et y reviendrons sans doute. Merci à Paola et Sergio pour leur accueil."

"L'accueil par les propriétaires est chaleureux, attentionné et personnalisé. Le logement est très agréable à vivre (fraicheur, calme, propreté ...). Il est à la fois rustique et raffiné, situé dans un village médiéval, bien sympathique, vivant, dominant la vallée. Nous le recommandons aux personnes aimant le calme, les endroits à la fois typiques et simples."

La "Casina" è veramente molto gradevole e confortevole, ben arredata e dotata di tutto quello che è necessario. E' situata in un paese molto bello dal punto di vista paesaggistico ed architettonico, che inoltre possiede un centro termale veramente valido. Dopo pochi giorni ci si affeziona...e i propietari sono stati veramente disponibili e premurosi. Li ringraziamo

San Casciano dei Bagni es un sueño, sus gentes son amabilísimos y la Cassina della Vía della Porticiola es un encanto que nos atrapó desde el momento que la vimos en internet. Toda ella es confortable y sus dueños Sergio y Paola facilitaron enormemente nuestra estancia con su simpatía y ayuda en todo momento. Gracias a todo lo anterior nuestro viaje ha sido inolvidable. Gracias por todo.
