Tiziana's reviewsAs a host (9)
“L'appartamento di Tiziana si trova nel bellissimo paese di Barberino Val d'Elsa, a 30km da Firenze e a 20km da Siena. L'autobus per Fienze o per Siena è a pochi metri dalla casa. Puoi visitare senza difficoltà San Gimignano, Certaldo, ma tutta l'area è piena di paesi e luoghi da visitare. Tiziana ci ha fornito una grande quantità di informazioni e consigli utilissimi. Tutta la famiglia ci ha accolto con simpatia e amicizia. L'appartamento è molto grande, equipaggiato di tutto, ben arredato, insomma perfetto per una bella vacanza. Raccomandiamo caldamente questo scambio! We highly recommend Tiziana's apartment in Barberino Val d'Elsa, perfect village and perfect location to easily reach Florence and Siena and many famous medieval villages nearby. We have been welcomed by Tiziana, her husband and their two nice sons very warmly and friendly. The flat is extremely comfortable and perfectly clean and maintained. A real fantastic experience, thank you to all the family!”
“The village is located half way between Firenze and Siena, comments about both cities are unnecessary, but this area is not only full of interesting and beautiful ancient villages to visit but also the landscape has an extraordinary personality. Having a car is not absolutely necessary, public transportation is efficient and cheap. The house is comfortable and very clean, the owners are a very nice family who left my apartment spotless. I highly recommend this exchange.”
“Hola, mi entercambio con Tiziana y familia en su casa de Barberino Val D'elsa ha sido muy maravilloso. La casa grande, bonita, limpia y muy bien situada en el corazon de la Toscana a mitad de camino entre Florencia y Siena, cerca de todos los pueblos preciosos de la Toscana. Tiziana nos envio mucha informacion de su casa y de la zona para visitar. Gracias Tiziana y familia por realizar el intercambio con nosotros. Emeterio y familia.”
“We just returned from Barberino. It was our first exchange and a wonderful experience. This house was ideally located to visit Tuscany and we were able to make lots of day trips. Not only is the location great, but the accommodations were very good. The house is beautiful and stylish with everything anyone could possible ask for. Our hosts were charming and helpful. They treated our house in Piran (Slovenia) with respect and care and everything was left clean and in order. The area is stunning and very close to Florence. We had a wonderful time and very happy memories. Highly recommended.”
“Carmen y yo hemos recientemente intercambiado nuestra casa de Cambrils (Tarragona) con la casa de Tiziana en Barberino Val d'Elsa en la Toscana. Se trata de un pequeño pero bonito pueblo situado entre Florencia y Siena. No hemos necesitado coche porque Barberino está bien comunicado por autobús, e incluso por tren (desde Poggibonsi, a tan solo 3 Km). Durante 10 días hemos disfrutado de su agradable casa, de los restaurantes de Barberino, y de las ciudades toscanas: Florencia, Siena, Pisa (muy agradable pasear por las callejas de esta bonita ciudad universitaria), Certald0o, San Gimignano y Lucca. En definitiva, intercambio muy recomendable. Asimismo la familia es muy atenta y nos dieron toda suerte de informaciones.”
“Nos sentimos muy afortunados de haber podido pasar nuestras vacaciones de verano en Barberino. Todo ha sido perfecto en este viaje: el arte, el paisaje, la comida, la amabilidad de los italianos!!!!! La casa está muy bien situada, a mitad de camino entre Florencia y Siena. Es muy limpia, acogedora, luminosa, bonita y funcional. Hemos mantenido una comunicación muy fluida con Tiziana. Nos hemos sentido como en nuestra propia casa. Muchas gracias, Tiziana, por cuidar tan bien de nuestro apartamento, estaba impecable y limpísimo cuando regresamos. Os agradecemos mucho vuestra amabilidad y la fácil comunicación con vosotros.. Lo consideramos un intercambio muy recomendable.”
“We had a lovely time in this picturesque village. The flat, on the ground floor, was very clean and spacious, ideally situated between Florence and Sienna. The village itself is small but charming and well preserved. It offers two nice restaurants and good quality local shops. We highly recommend this place to visit the best of Tuscany!”
“Our home swap with the Pirisca family has been totally successful. The house was quite in keeping with the description made: well equipped, comfortable and clean; ideally located to visit Tuscany, in the charming little town of Barberino, between Florence and Sienna. Our hosts have been perfect,eager to give us their help and make sure we enjoyed our stay in their house. As our guests, they have been satisfied of their stay in Falicon and have left our house as clean as they had found it.”
Where is it?
The village, one of the most beautiful village in Italy, is a perfectly preserved Medieval hiltop town. It is a perfect location for exploring Tuscany and north Umbria. It is possible to get there by public transport from any Italian airport including Florence Pisa Bologna Milano Rome. The village is provided of all you need for an enjoyable stay without moving from the village. A lot of concerts in the church and many others event like exhibitions, music and possibilities to appreciate local foods. In the village you can eat the best meat and drink one of the best wine of Tuscany! It is half way between Florence and Siena on a panoramic hill near the freeway to Florence and Siena. The village is served by a bus service that stop close the house for Florence, Siena and San Gimignano that makes of the accommodation an excellent localization to visit Florence, Siena (both reachable in only 30 minutes by car or 1 hour by bus) San Gimignano, and enjoying the Chianti, very well known for its wine and good food, all year round. The village is in a breathtaking panoramic position, on the top of a hill of 400 meter above the sea level, dominating the west part of the Chianti Classico wine region. These accommodations are ideal for people who want to visit Florence Siena Pisa SanGimignano Monteriggioni Colle Val Elsa Arezzo Certaldo and Fiesole with the public service and then discover by car the Chianti Classico countryside and its wonderful middle aged villages. The surrounding countryside is very picturesque and typical Tuscany. The village is located in the center of Tuscany and it is a good base for exploring the entire Tuscany.
We have the best of both worlds here, lovely countryside and the big city attractions of Florence and Siena within easy reach. Our central position opens up possibilities of travelling to many parts of Tuscany and Italy too. The people here is open and nice.
