The experience concerning the needs of our guests once they get Piè di Costa enable us to give, to everybody who want to spend an holiday in Tuscany, a short list to keep in mind while packing the suitcase.

  • First of all it's important not to forget passport and identity papers. Once you stay far from your home it is important to have some cash money and a valid credit card.
  • In Tuscany and in Montaione you will find some chemists that in case of need will help you, but before your departure it is a good thing to put into your suitcase some medicine and a spray for insect bites. Remember that you are going to stay in the countryside.
  • To be able to use some electric devices (like computers, hair-dryer.) it is necessary to bring with you an adaptor for "German plug". By the way, in case you forget it, you can by an adaptor in an ironmonger's shop or in a supermarket or otherwise we will supply you.
  • A stay in Tuscany is ideal for visiting the cities of art (the most important are located just 50km away from Piè di Costa) that can be reached - with daily trips - in just 1 hour by car. For that reason you should find into your suitcase a space to put a Tourist Guide about Tuscany.

  • For your personal care you will not to forget an hair-dryer, toothbrush, make-up and all necessary for your personal hygiene. However, in case you forget it, don't worry, in the shops in Montaione you will find all you will need.
