3 bedrooms House for rent from 2 to 10 people in Serramonacesca from $94/Night

Family vacation - Aug / Sep 2017
We had a really lovely time at Olive Grove Farm. We had just a week , but will definitely come back either next year or the year after with some friends.

Everything was as good as the website predicted. We loved all the large rooms which were well decorated and several had exposed stone walls. Really quaint and charming old house beautifully restored, although there was a little effervesce of the plaster in a couple of the rooms downstairs as I should imagine there is no damp course, but there appeared to be no damp.

Loved the swimming pool and surrounding countryside -certainly the views are stunning. It was nice to see a really GIGANTIC pool which was beautifully warm. Village shops (2) kept a good variety of food but a little expensive compared to the supermarkets where we did most of our shopping. You definitely need a car here – unless you love walking although there is quite a good bus service from the village which my daughter used twice.

Abruzzo is certainly one of the better areas of Italy (are they called states?) with very high mountains and lush green fields. Certainly a varied landscape but beautifully unspoilt even by tourism. Apart from the beaches (preferred Frankovilla to Pescara) and the pool we did not do much sightseeing.

Would very much like to come back for a longer period to explore more – our week went far too quickly!

3 bedrooms Gîte - Self Catering for rent from 6 to 8 people in Romola - San Casciano in Val di Pesa from $150/Night

retired people vacation - Sep / Oct 2015
My husband and I have been renting Casalini 1 for the month of September for approximately the past 15 years - this in itself is ample testimony! I Casalini is in an ideal location in the Chianti region just outside Florence - perfect for touring the surrounding places of interest such as Siena, San Gimingnano, Greve, Rada, Montalcino, etc. the house itself is spotlessly clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Maria Teresa is a gem! With extensive knowledge of the area. Book a vacation, you'll love it as we do and will definitely not be disappointed.

Family vacation - September 2016
This was the second time we have stayed at Olive Grove Farm. We were orginally recommended by some friends in 2010 and we stayed here first in the summer of 2011. It was good then, but since a lot more has been developed. We could access properly the little river at the bottom of the land and had some great family games. The children loved playing in the stream building dams - although the water was a little cold for us. The house is lovely with plenty of space, many facilities and good quality furniture especially the lovely Italian antique in what they call the open room - has no windows just shutters. The kitchen is superb and well equipped but we liked most the terrace just simply beautiful views in every direction and the super swimming pool. Serramonacesca (about 10 min walk) is an unspoilt Italian village with some lovely people and two bars and the Adriatic was not too crowded with cleab sandy beaches. Completely private - we even swam in the nude sometimes. Plenty of external activities and things to do. Thoroughly recommend!
