We were under the impression that we were going to a little house in the Chianti " a real cottage". We were disappointed, because this is not " a cottage " but rather a "townhouse" located in front of the parking lot for residents. The table provided for us to drink a little w…

Dear Helen, I would like just to reply to your review on the basis of the description and photos you can see on our AIRBNB page and I do not what to mentioned also all the other complains you have done when you arrived in the house (as they were quite inappropriate). I am sure you did not even read our AIRBNB page. Actually this is also a suggestion for all your future travels. In fact if you do not read the descriptions of the houses where you are going to stay you will never be happy of your accomodation, because you are expecting something that is only in your mind, but is not the reality. In our AIRBNB page is written that Il Torrino is located in the city centre of Barberino and it is not in the countryside. The house has been built incorporating an ancient defensive tower of the town, so yes the house is a medieval house completely renovated. Moreover you cannot park in front of the house, but there are free of charge parkings 50-100 meters from the apartment, some parkings are on plane, while others are along the hill. Tuscany and specifically the Chianti area is composed mainly by hills, it is not a plain area, but actually this is the main peculiarity of this region. What you call "major road" that causes a lot of noise is only a local road that links the two small towns of Tavarnelle and Barberino, so you can understand that cannot be so noisy, moreover the windows looking down this street are those of the kitchen, the livingroom and the big bathroom and are not the windows of the two bedrooms. Please note that the street is not close to the house, the house is up the hill and between the street and the house there is another building and a garden. For what concerns the darkness of the house I do not have any comment... pictures of the house are enough!

PERFECT location in a beautiful, charming village. The house, where Franca Maria was raised, sits just off to the side of the church, and is part of the original wall of the city. The view from the back windows are of rolling countryside, while the front door opens to a charming …

En general estupenda, aunque solo contamos con un cuarto de baño, pues el otro es incompleto, no tiene inodoro, por lo demás la casa es genial, está en el mejor sitio del pueblo, y es muy acogedora, Franca María nos aconsejó sobre el turismo de la zona, fue muy amable, si tuviéra…

Milagros querida, están felices de haber tenido a mis invitados, gracias por la opinión escrita. Me gustaría hacer una aclaración: en descrizionefatta segundo baño Airbnb es claro que, además de la pileta sólo hay bidet y ducha, el inodoro no se menciona. No es mi intención de dar a los clientes una información incorrecta!. Un cordial saludo Franca Maria
