After travelling through Italy for 9 days, we were surprised at the lack of basic facilities available at the apartment. Our stay would have been made easier had there been a toaster, kettle, iron and hairdryer. Also during a 4 day stay we needed to maintain the level of cleanliness we arrived to and clean up after ourselves. There was nothing to do it with. Some tea towels, dish clothes, a mop and cleaning spray would have been very helpful. There is dishwasher, which was great, except the tablets are quite expensive to buy and we had to buy washing up liquid and use a hand towel from the bathroom to dry up. These few essentials would make a huge difference to this beautiful apartment.
The location of the apartment is fantastic, set on a hill with dramatic views over the Tuscan countryside. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable, we slept well and enjoyed spending time on the patio admiring the scenery. We also ate in the restaurant on two occasions (I have done a separate review of this). We had no trouble finding the house with a sat nav and although the road up to it is a little steep and scary we managed it fine. I highly recommend this apartment if you are looking for somewhere peaceful and tranquil to unwind.
