We stayed at Santa Lina in August 2013 with two adults and two children (6/8) for a week. I must say, that our vacation there was simply super. We had the bigger appartement over two stories, which is spacious and fully equipped, the kitchen ist completely usable und well stocked.
The interior fits perfecty to the beautiful stone house situated on a tuscan hill overseeing the landscape. There are three apartments, all secluded from another with private verandas. Another separate accomodation is in a stone house in the garden. Pomarance is about 4km away and the trip on the gravel road is easy. Pomarance has a very good infrastructre, a mix of a well equipped coop supermercato and the charm of local stores. We had the opportunity of a city festival there, which was great. Siena, Florence, Volterra and Pisa are reachable in short distance (0,5-1,5 hrs). The other occupants there went to the beach almost every day, so even that must be close.
Within a 30min walk down the hill, a clear river is inviting for swimming. The kids loved the expedition.
The house has a pool, which has been cleaned every day to perfection and has very good water without the chemical overdose we experienced elsewhere. Lie in the water and watch the landscape.
The agrotourisme is run by Angelo, Piero and Marcella. They are lovely, very caring people („tuto bene?“), who know the area well and will assist in every way. They are also very discreet, Angelo lives on the premises. Every morning Piero and Marcella brought us fresh bread, italien specialties and other breakfast items.
The place is totally safe, almost no mosquitos during our stay. Basic internet is provided – we had an own umts-surfstick with us, which ran there at HSPDA fullspeed. Overall a great experience and a place to recommend fully.
Thank you for the hospitality and the great time in tuscany.
