“Wonderful, we will return”
Reviewed 30 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I do not understand the horrible one star recent review. It, in no way, reflects the fabulous stay we had with Gabriga. There are a few comments I would like to address :
Gabriga's artists residence isn't trying to be a 5 star hotel . It is a lovely old rustic villa in the country .
Problem with the steps? Well they are just steps, surely not a problem unless there is a mobility issue and I'm sure Gabriga would have been happy to help with any luggage.
Photos are an very good likeness to the property and the feel, including the picture of the steps !

Anyway, we had a wonderful stay. We have a young family and it was a great choice for us . We wanted to explore Florence and it was a good base, away from the madness of the city . It is a lovely rustic villa with a family feel. Clean rooms, comfy mattress , proper cotton bed linen, gorgeous view, delicious food, lovely outdoor space, warm welcome.
I went for an amazing run in the mornings, just along the road, surrounded by gorgeous Tuscan countryside, olive trees and grape vines as far as I could see, absolutely beautiful.
It is definitely a taste of non touristy Italy.
Gabriga was an excellent host , laid back, friendly and attentive without being intrusive . He has good local knowledge, is a fabulous cook , we had some great meals which were great after trooping around Florence all day.
We will definitely return, thanks gabriga

Hello Kate, thanks for your sincerity in your review and for having refuted the lie of the previous year. In fact Artist's Huuse SunMars is a real B & B family, in a beautiful villa on the Tuscan hills of Chianti.
Three guest bedrooms, living room, porch and garden are the right size to get quiet days and relax.
I am happy to have had guests, and that between us there is a beautiful friendship. I hope to see you soon!!
Gabriga

Ciao Kate, grazie per la sincerità nella vostra recensione e per aver smentito la menzogna della precedente. Infatti Artist's Huuse SunMars è un vero B&B familiare, in una bella villa sulle colline toscane del Chianti.
Tre camere per gli ospiti, soggiorno, loggiato e giardino sono la giusta dimensione per ottenere giorni tranquilli e relax.
Sono felice di avervi avuto ospiti e che tra noi ci sia una bella amicizia. Spero di rivedervi presto!!

Worst place we have ever stayed in. there was over 20 grassy and slippy steps up to the house, this was never mentioned anywhere. You had to drag your luggage up the steps. the wifi did not work at anytime during our stay. the room was dirty and did not match the description in anyway as advertised. There were no facilities as advertised whatsoever. we have stayed in 5 star hotels on the same trip for the same price. It was ridiculously overpriced- 94 euro without breakfast. the pictures of the property were totally misleading. The hot water did not work unless you allowed the tap and shower run for at least 5 minutes. the property was dirty and messy. We could not wait to leave and will never return. The first thing we were asked for upon arrival and prior to seeing the room was payment.

Mrs. Mac Carthy,
It would be better, for accommodation, do without your presence, because what she says about my is completely false.
First of all, we have also agreed to check in at 12:00 instead of 14:00 wings, so we have come to meet your needs.
Second point, when you get into any receptive structure, B & B or hotel, the first thing to do is register, and the second payment. Among other things, the payment has been made after you got into the room. This is getting us and especially for guests who stay only one night.
Third point. On my page shows all the photos of the structure. House registered in the category "country house". Both interior spaces, and external, are shown in the photos. So you also see the outside stairs for access from the parking area (free) to about ten meters from the villa.
Usually, when guests arrive, we go to meet them and also help them, if they have big luggage.
All photos show the entire hotel, so his "non-existent" definition is totally false, may have slept in the car, or in a room with a big bed, with private bathroom and bed for her daughter, as well as a comfortable sofa ?
The WiFi service has always worked and it's free. So much so that there is a signal repeater next to the room that he occupied.
As is the parking and use of the pool is free. In addition, there were also offered breakfast.
So, being the master bedroom clean and tidy not completely understand the reason and rage against our B & B.
His statements are unsubstantiated and undocumented.
You can understand, then, by reading my other reviews that its review is just an evil, you probably should not have much love Italy.
We do not sell chatter. Ours is a small B & B family, with three bedrooms, all with private bathroom. Our property is a beautiful old country house. The town homes have purity characteristics that do not correspond to the artifices of the big 5-star hotel.
So for the future I suggest you choose more carefully the place where he wants to spend the night to avoid unnecessary conflicts with its host with the utmost courtesy.

Greetings
Gabriga Pellegrini

Signora Mac Carthy,
Sarebbe meglio, per le strutture ricettive, fare a meno della vostra presenza, in quanto quello che lei afferma sulla mia è completamente falso.
Prima di tutto, le abbiamo anche accordato il check-in alle ore 12.00 invece che ale 14.00, quindi siamo già venuti incontro alle vostre esigenze.
Secondo punto, quando si entra in una qualsiasi struttura recettiva, B&B o hotel, la prima cosa da fare è la registrazione, e la seconda il pagamento. Tra l'altro il pagamento è stato fatto dopo che siete saliti in camera. Questo noi si fa sempre e in particolare per gli ospiti che si fermano una sola notte.
Terzo punto. Sulla mia pagina, sono mostrate tutte le foto della struttura. Casa iscritta nella categoria "casa di campagna". Sia gli spazi interni, che esterni, sono mostrati nelle foto. Così si vedono anche le scale esterne per l'accesso dalla area parcheggio (gratuito) ad una decina di metri dalla villa.
Di solito, quando gli ospiti arrivano, noi andiamo incontro a loro ed anche li aiutiamo, se hanno grossi bagagli.
Tutte le foto mostrano tutta la struttura, perciò la sua definizione "inesistente" è totalmente falsa, ha forse dormito in auto, o in una camera con letto grande, con bagno in camera, e letto aggiunto per sua figlia, oltre ad un comodo divano?
Il servizio WiFi ha sempre funzionato ed è gratuito. Tanto che c'è un ripetitore di segnale accanto alla camera che ha occupato.
Così come anche il parcheggio e l'uso della piscina è gratuito. Inoltre, vi è stata offerta anche la prima colazione.
Quindi, essendo la camera da letto pulita ed in perfetto ordine non si capisce assolutamente il motivo e la sua rabbia contro il nostro B&B.
Le sue esternazioni sono prive di fondamento e non documentate.
Si capisce, poi, leggendo le altre mie recensioni che la sua recensione è solo una cattiveria, probabilmente non deve amare molto l'italia.
Noi non vendiamo chiacchiere. Il nostro è un piccolo B&B a conduzione familiare, con tre camere da letto e tutte con bagno privato in camera. La nostra struttura è una bellissima e antica casa di campagna. Le case di campagna hanno caratteristiche di purezza che non corrispondono agli artifici dei grandi hotel a 5 stelle.
Perciò per il futuro le consiglio di scegliere con più attenzione il luogo dove vuole pernottare per evitare inutili conflitti con chi la ospita con la massima cortesia.

Saluti
