IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL HOLIDAY-MAKERS:
La Terrazza is not an official tourist structure, such as an hotels, residences, etc. but private house. Being such, it does not have standards or categories that are internationally recognized, indeed it reflect, in its architecture and furnishing, the local traditions and the personal taste of the owner.
This is precisely the kind of holiday we offer: the chance to partake in the culture of Tuscany, living in the
same surroundings as an inhabitant would. In order to live this experience in the right spirit, it is important
not only that the holiday-maker accepts but also that he will be able to appreciate the differences in the
properties we are proposing in comparison with those where he normally lives.
