Our Tuscany dreams come true!

  • 5 of 5
My husband, teenage daughter and I were fortunate to discover and had the privilege of staying at Casa Caterina during our trip to Italy last July. We still talk frequently about this wonderful home and the breathtaking scenic views. Communication with these owners was efficient and welcoming before and during our stay. We were greeted by Caterina and her pup upon our arrival. We soon met Marco for a smooth transition and introduction to this vacation home. The home is part of a very large farmhouse with 2 other apartments. There is a large parking area when you come in the gravel driveway. Casa Caterina is conveniently located next to the parking lot, up a short walkway by the hedge and then thru the pretty iron gate. Here is the yard and private pool and covered outdoor table. Once inside you'll notice beautiful furnishings and an extremely clean home. Pride of ownership is evident. Upstairs is beautiful with a spacious bedroom and living areas. The kitchen and bathroom are both modern and well equipped. Water pressure was great. The master bedroom was lovely with a comfortable bed and a beautiful antique armour for your clothes. Even though Italy was having a heat wave this room had an overhead fan which kept us cool. We opened the window too and from our bed's vantage point could see the Big Dipper in the clear sky. Could it get any better? Our daughter had the bed and bath on the lower level which gave her lots of privacy when it was needed. The outdoor terrace off the living room gave way to unparalleled views of olive groves, vineyards and the breathtaking Tuscan countryside! Located in the very heart of Tuscany we ventured from this dream home taking day trips to nearby Florence, Pisa, Siena and many other charming smaller towns and villages. You will definitely need a GPS as we did when renting our car. When taking these day trips we simply put the name of the city in the GPS when it asked for 'city centre' instead of an actual address as you'll want to go to the older part of the city for sightseeing anyway. Access for trouble free wifi was extremely convenient in planning our days efficiently. The nearby grocery store CO-OP has everything you need including local wine. It is similar to our smaller grocery stores with its own parking lot but shorter hours in the evening. You also have to weigh your fresh produce and get a sticker with the price before proceeding to the check out (we learned this the hard way!). A fabulous property you'll love!

Magical...

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Casa Caterina was magical... it was everything I imagined Tuscany would be like, and more. The property was well maintained and felt like a home. There were breathtaking views from every window. The evenings spent on the balcony watching the sunsets were amazing. Marco, Caterina, and Filipo were gracious and lovely hosts. They couldn't have been more helpful. The location of the villa was perfect for daily sightseeing adventures. I highly recommend that you have a car equiped with a GPS ... it will make it much easier to navigate the Tuscan region. Trust me.. you will need it. I highly recommend this property. You won't be disappointed.

Finaly in Tuscany with my lover

  • 5 of 5
Last summer we found a charming place to live la dolce vita in Tuscany. Filippo & Catarina were so welcoming to us and there place is perfect. We rented for 14 days in May and split the house with a friend's couple who really love the place. The location is great when you want to visit either Firenze, Lucca,Montalcino, San Gimignano, Sienna and also Cinque Terre.

We enjoy every moment and off course every bottle of Chianti wine on the terrace with the sunset.

The accomodation and the kitchen with the splendid view even when you do your dishes was a must if you want to live in Tuscany like the Italians people.

Our only hope is to come back asap and bring a new couple of friends or even our own family including grands childrens.

Wonderfully convenient, romantic location in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful time in Casa Caterina...a perfect location 30 min from Florence, San Gigminano, 45 from Siena, 1.5 hr from Pisa/Lucca. Easy access to local wineries, Filippo and Caterina were lovely, they set up a tour and dinner at the neighboring LeTorri Winery across the valley. The home was lovely with all amenities, and the private pool was so nice. For us,it was a nice get away with friends, but could easily work for a small family. Hope we can come back again!

Our stay at Casa Catarina was very enjoyable. The house was everything we hoped for and the amenities were excellent. We would recommend it to anyone who wants to explore Tuscany. The central location makes it easy to get to Florence, Siena, Lucca, Pisa and the many small towns around the area. Food shopping at the co-op store in Tavernelle was easy and convenient and having full kitchen facilities made it easy to cook for ourselves when we wangted to do so. Fillipo and his parents were excellent hosts and the house was clean when we arrived and very comfortable to stay in. We enjoyed our meals on the balcony overlooking the valley with vinyards and olive groves. The sunset each evening was magnificent.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Ciao Marco and Caterina! Our time at Casa Caterina could not have been any better. We totally enjoyed our stay there and wished we could have stayed much longer. 6 days is not enough to take in all that Casa Caterina offers as it is situated in a perfect location for taking day trips. The home is very warm, inviting and provides everything one would need to feel perfectly at home. You could not have been any nicer to us. We could tell, you wanted us to have the best experience we could - and we did. We had dinner twice in Barberino at Il Campanellino and enjoyed it so much each time. We visited a wonderful winery, Verazzano and had lunch/wine with an incredible view. The wine in Chianti is so good, we drank our share! The countryside where Casa Caterina is located is simply beautiful. We kept taking pictures at different times of the day. The mornings were special when we could watch the fog lift. We have memories for a lifetime. We hope we return to Italy some day, and if we do, we will for sure want to stay at the Casa again.
Thank you for helping to make our trip so wonderful.
