Lovely, spacious apartment in a quiet country village. Just great!
A lovely home from home with a lovely spacious rooms and a great view of the distant hills. The pool was lovely and it was not too busy. We were able to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine and warmth while enjoying our sundowners! We are not too far from Pisa, Lucca, Florence and San Gimignano, so plenty to do if you have itchy feet.
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay. I am pleased to hear you had a great time and enjoyed the apartment and the distant views. Glad to know too that you visited many of the nearby interesting places and made full use of the garden and pool. I look forward to welcoming you back again one day.
Sehr gern wieder
Wir hatten zwei wunderbare Wochen.
Im Appartement ist alles, wirklich alles vorhanden. Egal ob es in der Küche ist, oder Wäscheklammern, Werkzeug, Spiele, DVDs, Bücher alles da. Karten der näheren Umgebung und eine gute Mappe von Peter zusammen gestellt, wo man alles findet, Restaurants usw.
Der Pool war natürlich für die Kinder super und sehr sauber. Die Anlage wird regelmäßig gepflegt. Die schöne Terrasse vor dem Appartement ist natürlich auch super um morgens draussen zu frühstücken. Die Gegend eignet sich sehr gut für Ausflüge nach, Florenz, Sienna, San Gimignano, Volterra..Wir haben alles gesehen und es war wunderschön.
Wer absolute Ruhe sucht, für den ist das Haus nicht geeignet, im Haus befinden sich noch einige andere Appartements. Den Pool und Garten muss man sich somit teilen. Das funktionierte gut. Die Wohnung darüber ist durch die Fließenfußböden etwas laut. Aber es ging auszuhalten. Etwas schade ist es, dass es im Dorf direkt keine Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt. Im nächsten Ort gibt es allerdings einen sehr großen Conad wo alles vorhanden ist.
Wir waren rundum zufrieden und bedanken uns bei Peter dem Vermieter dass er zu jeder Zeit für unsere Fragen Antworten hatte.
Cathleen and family, thank you for your very positive and kind comments. I am very pleased to know that you had two wonderful weeks in the apartment and that you felt it was very well equipped and well cared for. I agree with you that the location is ideal for visiting the most important places in Tuscany. Our grandchildren love the pool too. Just like you, we enjoy eating outside on the terrace. The tobacconist in the village is in fact a small shop. Our friends in the apartment above us only rarely use it. It is good to hear that nothing spoiled your holiday and you were completely satisfied, also that you would stay again. I would happily welcome you and your family back for another stay in the future. Thank you for staying in our apartment . My Best wishes to you and the family, Peter
Great apartment, wonderful view from terrace
We recently stayed in Pete and Pam’s beautiful apartment for the second year running. For a quiet family break it is absolutely perfect and the apartment has everything you would need. We stayed for two and a half weeks and would happily have stayed even longer. It has a modern fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, 2 showers and private terrace to sit, eat, sunbathe etc. Pete also writes lots of tips in his notes and local guides and gives recommendations and directions to the good local restaurants. Lari, Terriciola and Casciana Terme all have a choice of great family run restaurants with very reasonable prices and about 10/15 mins drive away.
The location is superb with amazing views across the hills to Pisa from the terrace, where we would sit for breakfast, lunch and dinner as it gets a mix of sun and shade. The village of Sioana is tiny but still has a local bar (with great take away coffee on request), grocery shop, newsagents etc. The Conad supermarket is about 10 mins drive is good value and has lovely fresh bread, meat, fish etc. It also has a very reasonable café with good food and Wi-Fi which we used daily (to keep up with the football news).
The pool and small garden are shared with others in the apartment block but we often had it completely to ourselves and it is rarely too busy. Our kids (11/13) loved having it to themselves for their games, but it is easily shared also.
Soiana is situated centrally to allow easy travel to the hill towns of Tuscany. We did a train trip to Florence, and drove to the likes of San Gimignano, Volterra, Pisa etc in around an hour. The waterpark in Cecina is a good day out for kids too. There are a few local vineyards where you can do a tour, tastings and buy some wine – we went for Valorsi and Castelvecchio.
Overall, I would highly recommend this apartment, and the efficient, friendly and accommodating responses form Pete made it a pleasure to book and organise. I just hope I haven’t been too convincing and there will be no availability for us when we want to return…which we will!
Thank you for your very positive and comprehensive review. I am so pleased to hear that your second stay was as enjoyable and successful as the previous one. It's good to know my tips and notes are useful. You are right, there is so much to see and do in the area. In the autumn the swimming pool is being upgraded and will be surrounded by a new terrace. Again, thanks for taking the time to write such a great review. I look forward to welcoming you in the future.
A great base for exploring beautiful Tuscany!
This was our first visit to Tuscany and we could not have had a better place to stay. Both the property and the area fully lived up to the expectations we had had from the owner's description and other people's reviews. Pete, the owner, was exceptionally helpful, answering any queries promptly and sending us information about the area beforehand. We loved visiting many of the places mentioned by Pete and by others in their reviews - Florence, Pisa, Volterra, San Gimignano, Lari, Lucca. We highly recommend this property, its situation and the area as a whole to anyone thinking about a holiday in Tuscany.
Thank you so much. I am really pleased to hear that you had a great holiday and loved the area and the apartment, and found the information useful. You certainly made the most of your stay visiting the many historical and fascinating places nearby.
Perfect location with fabulous views.
We stayed at this apartment in August 2014. It has everything to hand that you will ever need. It is truly a home away from home. The location is perfect for visiting all of the major sites. The welcome pack that was supplied was excellent and we eat at several of the suggested restaurants.They were all fantastic.
I already want to go back.
Many thanks Pete.
Thank you, I am glad you had an enjoyable stay and look forward to your return in the future.
We stayed in July 2014 and were delighted with the property - beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and well maintained with large comfortable beds, a spacious living room, 2 good bathrooms & a well equipped kitchen. The patio area is larger than it appears in the photos & is a wonderful spot to catch the sun. The pool & garden are well maintained & though they are shared with other residents we often had the place to ourselves. We found the owner Pete to be very helpful, replying promptly to our queries & providing useful & detailed information on the surrounding area, places to visit, restaurants, shops, driving & parking tips etc. The apartment is furnished with many guide books, maps etc. which we found most helpful. The village itself is very quiet and a car is necessary for shopping & eating out as well as touring around this beautiful part of Italy. Overall we had a wonderful holiday here and would highly recommend. Thank you Pete!
