    Great great service, extremely friendly serving staff aaaaaber : And here comes our easter egg... We actually wanted to, our holidays really to be able to enjoy, full board. Luckily our broker here in Switzerland advised against! You could then still place decide, which go. - at the day of arrival we were in their own restaurant eat and it was really bad! A few of us found the antipasti still really good, but then was closed. With Italian food was nothing to do. The vegetables smelled after fish, the tortellini smelled fish, the meat reminded more of a somewhat used, the fish was guaranteed good, and the spaghetti with meerfrüchten gave tummy ache! The dessert? Terrible, not enjoyable. Each food in the autogrill on the way was better! Only plus point: mineral water and 3 wines (vino bianco, rosso and spumante) in any quantity otherwise. Oh; the penne were so la la, times apart from the olive oil wash... - breakfast; took some getting used to with sweet pastry, and typically Italian hard ' frischbrot ' ;-). Automatenkaffe: yuck! Industrial made salami and cheese: yuck yuck. Orange juice from the machine with co2 and plentiful preservatives: choke!

  • Lage und Umgebung
    5.0

    If you are a property with a direct view of the sea wishes is in the wrong place here. - the complex is between a hardly busy sagging race separate beach and a railway line in the middle of by pine trees. - it is from the ss1 within 3 minutes and easy to find (under the railway by, and you're there). - after follonica to nearest supermarket ( conand ), where you can get everything you need, it is a 5-minute drive. Just the street after (not under the railways by) direction follonica one drives directly at the supermarket. Just right (70 meters) you will find a bank with atm, which all major credit and maestro cards. - during our stay the ' supermarcato ' on the complex I think once briefly open. Not really recommendable, there overpriced and no real choice. - on the complex 'baja ertrusca ' (next to beach entrance 100 meters on the wide dirt road to, then right) but there are two small shops, where you fresh bread, milk and other ( amongst others Italian speciaties) buy can. Both lead more toys and sandeli utensils (sorry, that was swiss German) than anything else. - also there is at the same place, as well as in the 'baja toscana' ristorante with fine pizzas (baja toscana). The complex 'baja toscana' is in the remaining with the key for the beach freely accessible. - another tip for a good supper is the swiss reka club golfo del sole. Reachable in 2 minutes by car to the turning area/ parking and then on foot about 100 meters. If you go further, one comes then automatically on the promenade toward follonica, with a long, public sandy beach ( umbrella not forget) - our complex also has a small bar for a nightcap or a haaammmmer 'cafe' in the morning before breakfast ( nothing for wimps what your filter coffee mourn want! )... :-) In Italy you drink coffee and no water! - follonica is not to and for itself really not worth seeing, but on the allfreitaglichen market ( behind the train station) you can find safe one or another bargain. Well hidden just a little to the right back opens after all the kleiderständen then a private market for salame, vino, olio etc. etc.

    - simply furnished, all necessary available. - kitchen could be a bit more pans and cooking utensils give away, if you like we (unintentional) cook had. But for pasta it is, for the pizza missing however the oven... :-) Tv not even turned on. - air conditioning in every room sepparat with a remote control start - respectively adjustable. ( we were in the low season, therefore no lärmemisionen of outside. But I can imagine, that in midsummer it really be unpleasant the noise forth, as before small house an own air conditioning system is available, which was quite noise.) - large green space behind the small house. Really great for playing children, which as quickly contact with other families manufacture.

  • Service
    5.0

    - staff, at front desk, in the restaurant, bar or gardener are all set up, friendly and accommodating. At the front desk there was someone who speaks German. Apart from that I was very happy with my knowledge of Italian. But where the language not help you, you could with hands and feet, and above all with a little understanding for the other culture communicate. Is attitude thing: when I stay at a foreign country go, I am me to adapt, and not vice versa. ;-) - laundry room with washing machine and tumble dryer available ( laundry Euro 5-and tumble dryer for 3-but rather on the threshold) - free wi-fi-access at the bar. A ticket with identification and password ask, this is an hour long valid, but can in any case a new demand. - what annoyed us quite a bit, was the ' essiggeschmack ' the toilettenwäsche in the room! The next time we will definitely our own shower and bring towels :-) - only weekly change of the towels seem a little poor!?

  • Sport und Unterhaltung
    5.0

    - low season no animations/ mini club, which we however also not used in the age, in which our kids are. - beach with small children top, as everything well in the overview. Could in the high season but rather tight Tip: the adjoining private beaches of two installations with their children -sea-pools can fully be used (naturally with exception the loungers and umbrella).

A well-kept complex outside of follonica. Very friendly staff and quite good, varied kitchen. Beautiful pool, hotel's own beach unfortunately very small and with sardinenbestuhlung. Bungalows are quite new, beautiful terrace, adequate beds ( except for the sofa bed). Cleanliness oK, but a problem with ants on the hotel. 70% Italian, 30% germans. Bewertung lesen

    Varied buffet with much fish and seafood. Pasta always top 'al dente'. Breakfast bland, but that is in southern europe normal. The service comes sometimes with the replenishment of buffet not afterwards, but it was bearable. Coffee from the automat, awful. Top espresso for 1 euros at the adjacent bar.

    On the edge from pratoranieri, which in turn requires randstadtteil of follonica is. The hotel beach was clean, but small. 12 minutes on foot or minutes by car until the great sandy beach 'ponente', crystal clear water, flat sloping, fine sand. Excellent behind the house, but not really disturbing.

    Very friendly and hard-working. By the pool always lifeguard, and pleasing and unfortunately rarely in Italy - without bathing cap obligation. Foreign languages skills almost not available, partly a bit of English. Rooms were clean, if you however not better to do than dust to search it will certainly find.

    Pool 25 meters and a children's pool. Very clean. Soccer/tennis court, satisfactory condition. 9 -hole Midget golf. Animation for smaller children in italiano, very nice team.

It is small luxury hotel however you feel on the complex however. The complex is not new but in good condition. The beach is very beautiful. Only the change did not quite the 'control' - waiting time unfortunately over 3 hours until you in the bungalow could. Bewertung lesen

Italian helipad- never again!

  • August 2012
On arrival middle August at 35 degrees we thought, that we not in a holiday resort, but on a helipad are. In a lot of bungalows walked the air-conditioners and caused a huge spectacle on the complex. Even when closed doors and windows you could noise hardly reduce. And as we soon noticed, walked the most air-conditioning devices day and night! As next we had to find out, that the line, the according to the travel catalogue 100 meters of the hotel away should be, directly behind the hotel along led. 3. source is the about 250 meters away passing ... by via Aurelia. Here is always traffic, a permanent constant noises causes. This was however only then hear, if the air-conditioning devices off were (which only in the morning short the case was) and not a train drove by (4-5 per hour during the day, at night a bit less). The bungalow complex itself is very nice and spacious. Between the bungalows are lawns, the however also unfortunately of the dogs ( pets are allowed) for pee and for larger stores used. For the cars there are numbered and covered parking spaces close to the particular bungalows. The cars itself only drive on 1 street ( parallel to the line) and the bungalow area is car-free. In our 1. Week were the 102 bungalows 98 of italians occupied, 4 from German. In the second week it was nevertheless already 13 German families. The whole complex is but Italian set. Another surprise there was also on arrival. We had a plastic bracelet shall (, although we had booked), so that we pool and beach could use. Here was also nothing in the brochure. We got then also a large key chain presented with: 1 key for the bungalow, 1 key for the safe ( no extra costs!), 1 electric. Key for the closet at the entrance, 1 electric. Key for the door to the beach. Problem here is only, that you only with the ' strandschlüssel ' from the hotel and on the beach comes. One must thus always go together, which not always easy!

    We were pizza food in the restaurant the hotel and that was really good! Also the price was ok. Merely the beverages ( Cola tin 0.33 for 4 Euro) we found overpriced. The ice was good and cost 2 scoops 2 Euro, what about the German price level is.

    One is the location of the complex very bad, because of the main line and the highway. To the other is the location but ideally, as you really just a few meters until the beautiful beach has. The area is wonderful ( if you from the terrible city follonica time it's expense). Tuscany as from the picture book!

    The bungalows are with approximately 45 meters² and double bedroom big enough for 3a 4 persons. The furnishings up to the usual standard of bungalows in southern countries. If you're on a filter coffee not do without wants, should however a coffee and a pot of bring your own, as it so what does not exist.

    1 lady at the front desk spoke German and was also very nice and helpful. Apart from that you must be glad, if English spoken is. The animation is only on Italian. TV only Italian channels (no satellite tv). Changing there was standard only 1 time per week. Here was also cleaned. Cleanliness was ok.

    The beach is great. sonntagmorgens, after our arrival, we had to the pool attendant and we got a firm sun screen assigned. The we had then for the whole stay. To the sun screen belong a couch and a chair. Both from aluminium. Although the sun screens are close to each other, was the beach but never crowded, since there weren't all at the same time at the beach were. All animation and child care was on Italian. There is a soccer/ tennis court on the sometimes played. Also a ping-pong table is at the beach available. Evening there children's disco and then theater performances or similar but everything on Italian... There are 2 pools. A shallow pool with a small slide and a 25 meters swimming pools with large slide. The swimming pools was really great, as you here in the morning without any problems can swim, since the italians then all at the sea were. Even if we only at o'clock at the pool arrived we still found easily loungers and sun screen ( and at ausgebuchter complex!)

We stayed at Villaggio il Girasole for two weeks at the middle of July. The camping village is well-looked-after and provided with many comforts (restourant, supermarket, bar, two swimming-pools, one for adults, and the other, smaller for the children). It's situated in the middle of the pinewold (there are a lot of mosquitos so bring along some lotion against them), near the sea. The sea is beautiful, the water is clean and trasparent. The cottages are very comfortable, pretty and clean. At restourant you can eat typical Tuscan food, very good (pizza was special). Kind and friendly employes at the ... reception, supermarket and bar. The atmosphere is very good. We are going to visit it again next year. Bewertung lesen
