What makes this Cottage unique
The farming area around the coottages , mainly olive groves, gives the landscape a typical Tuscan appeal. We have always farmed organically without using any kind of chemicals and therefore the air is pure healthy and filled with the natural fragances of the original plants grown in our gardens, Scents of lavender rosmary and wild roses will welcome you on arrival. The views are fantastic , being the cottages set on top of a hill 450 mts on sea level.

We spent a week in La Cantina and it was an idyllic spot and a lovely, cosy cottage. We appreciated the simple, rustic nature of the cottage itself and the generous garden, which was private, nicely maintained and well supplied with chairs, tables, barbecue etc. In particular, the garden had a covered terrace / outdoor eating area with lovely views and the most wonderful overhanging grapevine with ripe, juicy grapes we were encouraged to help ourselves to - such a luxury! We were lucky with the weather - hot days and cool evenings / nights. This meant we could take full advantage of the outdoor pool, which was an excellent shared facility, set in a large garden with lovely views, and which we often had to ourselves or shared with just one other couple. It also meant we used the open fire in the cottage at night and took advantage of the supply of logs for the purpose.
Beyond the cottage, the local town was small and friendly, with good local shops which met all our needs for food and supplies, and a couple of nice restaurants. We also took advantage of the owners' free vist to the ir olive press and oil tasting session, which was great. The cottage was well placed for days out too, and our favourite was probably the day in beautiful Florence via train from the local station.
Overall, we had an excellent time and would highly recommend this location and cottage.
Casa Arco in Vierle is incredibly charming, restful and cosy!
Our two little dogs enjoy playing in the large and well kept garden while we are sipping a cool drink in the sun-loungers and admire the inspiring countryside.
Swimming in the beautifully situated pool always feels like being member in an exclusive private club. Of course we will return! It will be our third time ...
An unforgettable vacation
We have spent already several times our vacation at different places in Tuscany. "Casa Arco", however, was by far one of the most beautiful and clean places we have been. We enjoyed especially the peace and quiet and the intact nature all around. "Arco" has been restored and furnished with great attention to details, a really nice idea for example was to hide the kitchen in a wardrobe. We also loved the spacious garden and outdoor area (two terraces belonging to "Arco") with a wonderful view to the mountains. So it was easy to find a suitable place to relax at any time of day. Although the site is located in a secluded spot in the mountains, many destinations can be easily reached from there: the beautiful city of Florence, the Franciscan monastery of La Verna, Poppi with its imposing castle and so much more. Particularly interesting was also the free visit an tasting of products in the family' s own olive oil mill.
Who wants to be self-catering will find some nice little shops at Londa, but there are also a number of good restaurants in this area. We thank the owners for their warm hospitality and for their efforts to maintain this lovely property as a holiday rental home.
A truly delightful little holiday home, nestled in the midst of the beautiful Tuscan Hills full of charm and character, integral with Tuscany itself. Our favourite places to visit from Cantina Di Bacco are very easy drives from here - Florence, Siena and Chianti. The quaint little cottage, impeccably clean and maintained to a high standard with very pretty and well kept gardens. The owners are incredibly accommodating, wishing to please, and lovely to meet.They are very proud of this adorable, cosy and comfortable little holiday home, and justly so - an absolute Tuscan Gem for all who choose to stay and enjoy. Relaxation at it's very best. we would highly recommend Cantina Di Bacco to friends,family and anyone else who asked us. We loved every minute of our stay here AND are returning just a year later.
Naar aanleiding van de advertentie hadden heel andere verwachtingen
Geen prettige ervaring, we zijn na twee dagen al weggegaan terwijl we een week hadden geboekt.
We voelden ons opgesloten tussen de
Muren van andere huizen, we zaten 10
Min van t zwembad vandaan op een heuvel bij de
Andere huisjes vandaan.
Ook naar het dorpje was het bijna 20 min rijden over een slingerende bergweg. Ik heb mailcontact met de verhuurder gehad waarin ik, k dacht netjes, heb aangegeven waarom we zijn weggegaan.
Ook die mailwisseling was niet echt prettig en klantvriendelijk ... Deze zal k separaat
I'm really sorry that there was so much misunderstanding with this client. If she had looked at the google map indicating our location , she would have realized that we were not in the village ofLonda , but above it among forests and fields. Our secluded position is what most guests look for, when they choose us. Italy is 75% mountainous and so it is to be expected that if you want a view and peacefulness you have to climb. The road is narrow up here , but not in bad condition and it is Always easier if you come with not a too big vehicle , like our guests.
As for the feeling to be within walls , it's very personal . Our mill belongs to a mediaeval hamlet ini our family for generations and around the mill there are four Other buildings , two are rented during summer and two are inhabited by members of our family who are Always very helpful when our guests need something . Nobody so far has found that unpleasnt just the opposite. The pool is shared but never crowded and is set in the most sunny spot of the area , ten minutes, walk if you reach it along the asphalted road , less if you go along the path accross the fields.
Foir sure our guest has booked the wrong property. It happens sometimes. We are really sorry for what has happened .
Wer Ruhe sucht und die Toskana erkunden will ist hier richtig
Kleines romantisches Häuschen in der Nähe von Florenz. Schon der nette Empfang unserer Vermieter hat für einen super Start in unseren Urlaub gesorgt. In der Wohnung haben wir frische Blumen und eine Flasche Wein zur Begrüßung vorgefunden.
Das Haus bietet alles, was man für einen gelunenen Urlaub benötigt: eine gut ausgestattete Küche, ein großes Bett mit guter Matratze und Badezimmer mit Dusche. Es war alles sehr sauber. Es gibt 2 Terrassen, so daß man zu fast jeder Tageszeit einen sonnigen Platz draußen hat (Falls man mehr Glück mit dem Wetter hat wie wir) Der Pool ist in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen. Die Poolanlage ist sehr gepflegt. Leider konnten wir sie nicht nutzen, da das Wetter meist nicht so gut war.
Wenn man bereit ist bein paar Kilometer zu fahren kann man die wichtigsten Sehenswürdigkeiten der Toskana von hier aus erkunden: Florenz, Lucca, Prato, San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, Monteriggioni, Pistoia, Arezzo und Pisa. Wir haben es sogar gewagt durch den Nationalpark nach San Marino und Rimini zu fahren.
In Londa gibt ers 2 kleine Lebensmittelgeschäfte und auch 1 Apotheke. Wem das nicht reicht, muss einfach ein Stückchen fahren und findet dann auch große Supermärkte.
Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt und können dieses Ferienhaus nur weiterempfehlen.
Vielen Dank an unsere netten Vermieter.
Vielen Dank für die ausführliche, schöne Bewertung unseres Arco-Hauses. Wir freuen uns sehr, dass Sie unsere Gastfreundschaft genossen haben und würden uns freuen, Sie wieder in einem unserer Häuser begrüßen zu dürfen. Wir hätten gerne erfahren, dass Sie zwei große Hunde bei sich hatten, auch wenn sie gute Hunde sind, sie haben viele Spuren auf dem Sofa und auf dem Boden hinterlassen.
Im Allgemeinen informieren uns unsere Gäste im Voraus, wenn sie mit Haustieren anreisen.
Nochmals vielen Dank, dass Sie sich die Zeit genommen haben, eine so positive Bewertung zu schreiben
