We were welcomed and shown around very nicely, and when we needed anything the owners were very quick to do all they could. It was phenomonenly hot when we arrived, and Alessio went straight out to buy some fans for our bedrooms when we said we couldn't cope with the heat.
There are seven apartments at this property, and because of the layout, you can be as private as you like, and stay on your own veranda or invite people over; At the swimming pool, each apartment has its own set of loungers and shades: I found this a bit proscriptive at first, being told where we had to sit, but in fact it worked very well and made things more relaxed, because there was never a scramble for loungers. People got to know each other at the pool, and there was a quiet friendly atmosphere which allowed for chat or not, as you pleased.
The apartment was very spacious, though the upstairs bathroom was on the small side, and was very clean and neat, with plenty of areas to sit in, and to entertain if you wanted to.
Our main problem was with the beds - they were incredibly hard and we all, even the children, got backache. We also needed more pillows: only one thin one each felt not very luxurious.
The kitchen was well designed and equipped, though we did need a couple of wooden spoons, as there was nothing to stir food with properly!
The location is great: the little village of Laterina is great to visit for little shops and a coffee in the morning; Arezzo is not far away, and it's less than an hour to Siena. You get to the property by driving for five minutes down a dirt track, so it feels quite wild, and there is a lovely view when you get there.
It was a nice touch having a bottle of wine waiting for us on arrival.
We are very sorry that our guest did not find the beds comfortable, because the mattresses are new and of excellent quality. No other client pointed out this discomfort. More pillows are at disposal on request and we'll be happy to supply them if needed.
