A perfect tranquil get away

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic week here with our two teenagers - the property is clean and beautifully presented and the swimming pool is outstanding. It is a little off the beaten track but well worth it for the peace, quiet and outstanding views. Highly recommended.

Fantastic house, view and pool

  • 5 of 5

We have used VRBO/homeaway a lot and this is our best vacation home yet! Two adults and two kids at age 6 and 8, stayed 3 weeks at the apartment, that is really a separate house from the rest of the Mommialla' apartments. The view from the terrace is amazing and we had most of our meals outside. It is close to nature, so be aware of ants and wasps. There is a 2 km gravel road before you reach Mommialla, and this means the area is quiet (and your car will be covered in dust from the dry dusty road). AC made it comfortable during the hot summer nights. Nice decorations of the house. The pictures are spot on. We would have liked a better kitchen knife or a sharpener, and a few more wine glasses, but other than that it is a fully equipped kitchen. Roberto is the manager in the area and made our stay safe and enjoyable. His is Italian and limited in English language, but we could understand each other. Multiple times we ran in to Roberto, and he always asked if all was well. Communication with Franco was fast and efficient. The pool is beautiful and well maintained – the kids loved it! We give our best recommendations.

Avons séjourné une semaine en Mai 2016 aux appartements MOMMIALLA non loin de San Gimignano. Le site est magnifique et pittoresque au cœur de la Toscane, avec Pise, Sienne, Florence à distance raisonnable. Un véhicule est nécessaire pour se déplacer.

Le complexe est extrêmement bien tenu; fonctionnel, discret, tranquille, moderne et très propre. L’accueil, l’hospitalité et le souci du bien-être de leurs invités sont remarquables de la part de notre hôte Franco et son homme de services Roberto. La piscine et les aménagements extérieurs sont bien tenus et très appréciés. Retourner un jour en Toscane, nous reconsidérerions sérieusement faire un autre séjour à cet endroit.

Stayed a week in may 2016 at apartments MOMMIALLA not far from San Gimignano. The site is beautiful and picturesque in the heart of Tuscany with Pisa, Siena, Firenze at reasonable distance. A vehicle is required to move.

The complex is extremely well kept; functional, discreet, calm, modern and very clean. Welcoming, hospitality and concern for the well-being of their guests are remarkable on the part of our host Franco and his serviceman Roberto. The swimming pool and the outdoor facilities are well maintained and very much appreciated. Returning one day in Tuscany, we would seriously consider making another stay at this place.

Ich muss sagen es war einfach klasse. Roberto hat uns empfangen und hat alles so gut erklärt dass keine fragen offen blieben. War sehr hilfsbereit. Ein Goldschatz.

Das Haus war ein Traum. Alles was man benötigt war da. Pool auch super mit mega ausblick. Lleider der nächste supermarkt war relativ weit. Die Straßen sind nicht gerade gut befahrbar aber wenn man sich gut organiziert dann klappt es auch.

Vielen Dank für eine super urlaub. :)

Wir wollten nicht wieder abreisen!!

  • 5 of 5

Diese Ferienwohnung - besser dieses kleine Ferienhaus - erfüllt alle unsere Erwartungen. Wir waren als Paar in diesem Anwesen. Perfekte Ausstattung, sehr sauber, alles da - ausser Sitzauflagen für die Sitzgruppe auf der Terasse. Sehr geräumig. Das Schlafzimmer mit dem Blick über die toskanische Landschaft ist der Wahnsinn. Der Pool ist ein Hingucker - aber bei Belegung wie zu unserer Zeit Mitte August überlastet.

Wir haben besonders die Nächte mit dem Sternenhimmel genossen - es gibt wenig Beeinflussunbg durch fremdes Licht. Aber das Beste war die Ruhe.
