Nice house and very pleasant swimming pool. Excellent place to enjoy Toscan country side, Italian sun and silent of nature. However, just be careful for the last 3 km to reach the house : the road is really bad (mire like a path with stones and dust), and if your cat is low as it was the case with mine, you can damage it easily (bottom of car scratching the ground). Excepted this detail, everything was perfect.

Christoph User Profile

I am a laid back guy who was born and raised in Hamburg and work as a ceo in property development here in Hamburg. I really do love to travel. Best spots I have been so far are NYC, Hong Kong, Phillipines, Kopenhagen & Toscany. I like to do city trips and want to get to know as most cities as possible during my life. I like to get to know the culture but also like good restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs. I really like the vibe of big cities...
When I don´t do city trips I like to travel somewhere where it is warm and you can chill out at the beach and enjoy nature.
In my spare time I like to do sports, watch movies and meet up with friends.
