Un endroit extraordinaire et une maison d un charme exceptionnel, propre, bien équipée et décorée avec beaucoup de goût.
Very large and homely family home. Recently (3 years?) renovated . Wonderful kitchen and family lounges and comfy bedrooms, clean bathrooms. Huge garden and a very relaxing infinity edged pool (views of castle of montecia), plus a large ping pong house. Completely fenced and private and with very easy access and good location for day tours (our experience in previous years coming to Tuscany involved steep white roads - , this was a breeze..) very enjoyable.
Its worth starting with a downer in that we did have to wait for about 40 minutes to be met - causing us some issues with chilled food - but a busy day for arrivals apparently and as we did not send a message until arriving at the meeting point it was probably a communication issue. Once we arrived , the house - absolutely wonderful, lots of space, clean comfortable rooms, bathrooms and kitchen. The outside terraces (providing wonderful views) and the private pool a relaxing place for us all to enjoy. The old hill town which is part of the wonderful views from the house, has many resta...more
The house was perfect. Very tuscan with all the amenities one would want. Very private but not too isolated. Only a short trip to Arezzo and Cortona. A new well had just been installed. I noticed how amazing the soil looked. I had no idea the new well would produce such delicious drinking water. The bonus came after washing my hair. My hair never looked healthier. I would go back just for the water.
A warm welcome from hosts including a large basket of fruit, wine and olive oil from the grounds . A long road takes you to the pretty cottage with nice views and plenty of space to run around, large pool and interesting walks we enjoyed Good that we had a flexible midweek arrival and could stay 10 nights.
About 5 Kms from Castiglion and on a lovely hillside setting with fantastic views, this is the perfect place to totally relax in absolute peace. Although slightly rustic, the villa was extremely clean and comfortable and the owner was always available to provide any assistance. The pool was clean and was an added bonus.
Good well kept large family villa - VERY large bedrooms and LOTS of space both inside and out. Views over the vineyards and groves of olives from the bedroom windows and from the garden and large private pool. Very pleasant outside kitchen and bread oven for pizza allowed for many feasts in the garden terraces which overlook the pool and are prefect to keep a watchful ey on the kids in and around the pool area. The closes shop is about a 2km walk, and there is also a restaurant nearby . In the town of Fiorentino many festivals, restaurants and activities to enjoy.
This was a second visit to Tuscany and its most enjoyable. Clean, comfortable and welcoming. The villa has easy access and yet is totally private and very homely. The house was larger than we expected - the additional reception and dining areas at the back of the house gave us all as much space as we needed to enjoy. The large pool - reached by a few stairs to a gazebo terrace was a great treat and the views and surroundings perfectly Tuscan.
What more to want - but a lovely home to enjoy two weeks in Italy. The large bedrooms with nice clean bathrooms, the (two) kitchens one small at the top of the house for the lazy amongst us.. and lots of space for us all to find our own space as well as great communal dining etc. Good wifi and easy communication with the owner. The pool and its setting marvelous to enjoy the views, and a little corner close to a olive tree with lovely natural shade.
The plus points here are the views and the comfortable accommodation the little hamlet offers. There are three cottages ours the medium sized with two good bedrooms and a large sitting room. The kitchen and )inside) dining areas good. Outside the large pool was never crowded and we had a few days all to ourselves when the other guests went off sight-seeing (as did we on a few days to Cortona, Pienza and Assisi). The downside is the long road to the cottage. We did get used to it but it should be noted for guests who are looking for a walk to the shops (a car is needed for groceries and for...more
Beautiful villa very spacious, there were only six of us but ten or twelve would have been fine ! Had great days out to montepulciano and sienna and loved the hilltop town of Castiglion Fiorentine we used the trains from local station but it was quite a long walk and car would have made things more accessible Sergio the owner was very helpful and friendly ,we definitely want to return !
A group of friends wanted a peaceful and experience in Tuscany - preferably with the visions conjured up from holiday programes of Tuscan's famous countryside and hill top towns. Finding Castello was therefore a real find. THe views - wonderful, the pool and terraces providing plenty of space to enjoy the views. The main villa (with two bedrooms and two bathrooms) full of detail and thoughtful touches in the kitchen and elsewhere. The studio /annex caused some argument - as we all wanted to enjoy it (A bedroom, separate bathroom, sitting room and kitchenette plus a lovely shaded breakfast ta...more
Although this place does not have a pool, the house is very - very good value and its recent renovations including new bathrooms and new kitchen make it very comfortable (and affordable). Good gardens and a nice walking area through olive groves at the rear of the villa. For those wanting water - the large (huge) public pool in the town was great for our midweek visit (not very many people), and another day out near the lake was also enjoyable. If you are looking for a good size house for your family - this could be the place.
We relaxed immediately . Our hosts explained the house well and then left us to enjoy our surroundings. The house was well equipped and with very comfortable beds. The BBQ area by the pool was rustic but a great place to sit read eat and enjoy a glass of wine. Day excursions were easy from the house with its great location and with the train station only 5minutes away we didn't always have to take the car. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and leave feeling relaxed.
very quiet location, away from it all. The cottage is set in a woodland and offers a nice private pool. There is also a local shop not too far. Standard size bedroom plus a smaller bedroom. THe bathroom is also on the small size, but the overall position of house and privacyis good
A family villa each room is big and the beds are comfortable and big. the wifi doesn't cover all the places in the villa..there isn't enough light and the air conditioner part of the rooms are mobile and noisy. There's no tv .. only a small computer screen. the view is hidden when u sit in the pool or outside the villa.. there isn't a big enough salon that everyone can sit together inside the house (we were 9 adults and 3 kids) only outside. The villa is very private and pleasant.
Beware of the drive-way. This needs a 4x4 to get over the bumps, and this should be advised upfront.
