A Pleasant Stay, but ....Posted Oct 30, 2014 on Hotels.com
We spent 8 days here in October 2014. The location was ideal for visiting Chianti and only 30 minutes drive from Florence. We had a garden room for two with beautiful views across the hills. There were two sunbeds in our garden, but they were removed before the end of our stay. The pool was closed by the 22nd. The gentleman who gave us our key and showed us to our room was not particularly friendly. The accommodation was spacious and the kitchen area adequate. The shower cubicle was very small and the temperature of the water erratic. The bed was very hard, but we found two blankets to put underneath us which helped. The energy-saving light bulbs were difficult to read by. The Wi-Fi and the TV worked well. The place is described as "rustic" and it certainly was! The room wasn't cleaned once during our 8 days. (If you want your linen changed there's a charge of €3 per person) Despite these few niggles we enjoyed our visit to Chianti and the location of La Presura is superb. Would we go back? No, because of the bed and the shower. We highly recommend the restaurant San Martino about two miles north on the road to Grassina.

Ble lurt av tidligere omtalerPosted Oct 6, 2014 on Hotels.com
Jeg om min kone valgte å bestille rom på La Presura pga. av tidligere rosende omtaler samt beliggenhet i forhold rundturer i Toscana. Først av alt fikk vi et rom rett mot veien ved siden av med mye trafikkstøy. Vi fikk imidlertid etter litt diskusjon et nytt rom med bede beliggenhet. Romservicen var elendig eller rettere sagt fraværende. De tre dagene vi bodde på La Presura ble rommet ikke ryddet, søppel ikke tømt og vi fikk ikke skiftet håndklær. Det var også vond lukt på rommet og masse fluer som ramlet ned i sengen. Sengen var ellers vond å sove i - altfor myk og den gynget hele tiden med to personer i sengen. I følge beskrivelsen var det 2-3 restauranter i nærheten. Det viste seg at de lå 2-3 km unna og livsfarlig å gå til om kvelden i mørket på en hovedvei ute veiskulder og lys og med stor trafikk. Personalet var for øvrig lite servicevennlig og vi fikk hele tiden følelse av at de bare var lei av alt som heter turister. Oppsummert kan vi si at svært lite stemte med beskrivelsen fra La Presura. Det finnes så mange andre hyggelige steder i Toscana, så hold dere unna La Presura!!

Nydelig vingård i fantastisk landskap, nær FirenzePosted Aug 23, 2013 on Hotels.com
Rett og slett veldig bra, en flott opplevelse. Man bor i en leilighet med soverom, kjøkken og bad, og klarer seg selv. Eiendommen er stor, med olivenlunder, vinranker og et stort svømmebasseng. Det finnes turstier og en innsjø med ender man kan besøke, sistnevnte var dog noe oppskrytt. Veldig hyggelig personale, og et fantastisk landskap gjorde oppholdet til en opplevelse. Alt var selvsagt rent og pent. Vi fant også mye god mat i landsbyene i nærheten. Det var ikke et direkte billig opphold, men anbefales likevel sterkt!

Lovely little farmhousePosted Jul 3, 2013
Pros: The room, and the setting.
Cons: The greeting, friendlier, and more informative about the grounds.
Location: Visited nearby small villages, driving the beautiful Tuscan rolling hills through vineyards, and eating great foods.
Very lovely setting. Good starting point for drives through Tuscany exploring wineries and many small beautiful little villages like Greve in Chinati and Radda in Chianti. The greeting at the apartment was a little bit short and not real warm. But they left us alone and certainly not a reason to prevent anyone from staying there. They hosted a wine tasting with a small tour and snacks. The vintner was fantastic, very informative, very cordial. Their wines were excellent and enjoyed it very much. A very enjoyable stay.

We rent the apartement with 2 rooms the apartement was soo beutiful and very big the view from the top windows was breathtaking is also only 10min away from florenze and the bus only charges 2 euros you can buy the tickes and the villa you can also buy wine and olive oil from the villa ask them if you can see were they make the wine! tip be careful of the taxis they will try to take you alround the country to charge you more! like 70 euros more they pretend is far, call the villa and ask wich bus and stop you should take
