Absolutely fantastic place if you want to spend valuable time with larger groups like family and friends. We spent two weeks there this summer and had over two weeks more than 35 people in both houses, split into two phases. The property consists of one large house (sleeps 20+ in 9 bedrooms) and a smaller one (for 6 people in 3 bedrooms), three pools of which one is a real big one.
The owners Gabriella and Cristiano live next door which turned out to be a huge benefit. They don't bother the guests at all, but are very very helpful and just great people. We had a very good time.
The location has 9 bedrooms over 2 floors and each room has air conditioning when required. The Tuscan evenings really did not require it. The beds and bathrooms were clean and the linens were in ample supply. Gabriella the hostess was wonderful. The pools were well maintained. The area was clean and the gardens very pretty. The access to the property is gated however the road down to the house could use some paving or surfacing as it is a dirt road and bumpy.
We felt at home at La Sciolta. Gabriella and Christian helped solve problems beyond the house like recovering a suitcase that did not make it on our landing.
They gave us a warm welcome and helped in every possible way to make our stay unforgettable.
A whirlpool, a large swimming pool, a ping pong table and everything the 18 family members could use were there in the most beautiful part of Tuscany.
18 members of our family spent a splendid 8 day holiday in this beautiful home in the middle of Tuscany. The home is situated in the middle of a wooded area, halfway between Siena and Florence and within easy reach of San Gimignano, Montaione and Gambassi Terme.This large house is very beautifully designed and very well equipped. there are two swimming pools and beautiful terraces for outdoor breakfast and other meals.
Our host Gabriella and her husband Christiano were most welcoming and very helpful. They were available to answer all our questions prior to our arrival and to help with any issues that arose during our stay, also issues not related to the house (Gabriella spent a lot of time helping one of us trace lost luggage)
We shall definitely return to La Sciolta.
