Your Authentic Tuscan Experience Off the Beaten Path
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marusca's apartment! First off she's a fantastic host, having her guests needs well thought-out and provided for. It was easy communicating with her via email and phone as she's very responsive and gave clear instructions on how to get to her apartment. Marusca was very accommodating to our arrival time at night and when she knew that we bought take-out pizza (as the nearby eateries were closed), she gave us some tomatoes and cucumbers from her garden, which I felt was very kind and thoughtful of her! There was also cake, a bottle of wine, drinking water and bread and milk in the fridge waiting for us! That was really nice! Marusca and her husband Gianni received us with much warmth and friendliness, providing us as much information as they could about the apartment and the town. We really couldn't have asked for more! As for the apartment - it's beautiful! Cosy, warm and inviting, looking exactly as they are in the airbnb photos! The kitchen is well-equipped with all the necessary utensils and crockery. There's also a washing machine, clothes rack/pegs, washing liquid and ironing board for all your laundry needs. The bedroom is spacious, with a very comfortable bed and a door that opens out to the porch which is nice if you like to enjoy some morning sunshine. Shower gel, shampoo and towels were all available in the bright and airy bathroom. Outside, the apartment overlooks a vineyard so it's peaceful and quiet. There are also bbq facilities in the garden, as well as ample parking space for 2 cars. We also appreciated the availability of wifi in the apartment which was fast and reliable. Overall, it's truly a wonderful experience of staying at a home away from home. I would highly recommend Marusca's apartment to anyone who's travelling in the region!
