“Beautiful place, very kind and helpful host”

Reviewed 18 Mar 2014

The appartment Lilac is in great ambient, with beautiful vew towards the Arno valey. It has it's own yard, with all facilities for pleasant stay. Living rom is big enough, and kitchen and two bathrooms are well equiped and confortable for pleasant stay of 4-6 people. The enterier is very nice, decorated with pictures and old peaces of furniture. The only disadvantage could be that there is no supermarket or restorant nearby.

Dear P., thanks for your words and thank you for taking the time to provide feedback. I hope to see again you and your Family. Kind Regards, Alberto
