Sweet family, Sweden

  • 5 of 5
Two of us stayed for 3 nights in November. It happened to be olive picking season, and everybody was picking olives with entire family. Paolo's mother was kind enough to bring back one bottle of freshly pressed olive oil (cannot get any fresher than this) in the evening so that we could take it back home. It was the best olive oil we had ever tasted. The farm house is very charming, and we felt like living in a fairly tale house. You feel instantly warm and comfortable the minute you walk in. The old family house is restored with a lot of attention and love. We like to go back next year for the same time for olive oil and hot springs.

The house may be a little bit hard to locate being in the countryside. We put Seggiano in Castel del Piano in our GPS; GPS guided us to the house without any difficulty. Paolo's family was very welcoming and treated us just like family. We will definitely go back.

Idyllic. Highly recommended!!

  • 4 of 5
My partner and I are in our 30's and wanted a quiet, cost-effective, rustic week in Italy. No crowds, tourists or temptations to spend lots of money.

Having both been to Italy several times we weren't interested in sight seeing and simply wanted a place with a pool and great views where we could relax, cook and drink local wine. This place was perfect positioned within a working olive farm (we stayed in the ground floor apartment).

From the courtesy call from Paolo on making an enquiry through to leaving we have no complaints.

The outdoor wood-fired oven was a big appeal and we used it every night, making pizza's better than those we found in town! You MUST give it a go and like the other reviewers say, Paolo and his brother are on hand to give instruction and assist in any way possible.

Each morning we got up, drove the 4-5k into the Castel del Piano (a much nicer town that Lonely Planet/Rough Guide gives credit), got a dopio expresso, visited one of the 9+ butchers (seriously!) and grabbed local wine (€1.60 a litre!)

With the upstairs neighbours out sightseeing all day (as we hoped!) we made base round the pool where we read, played backgammon and ate - a lot!

There are plenty of 'communal' areas too so you can move about - plus politely keep to yourself if you're after romance, rather than socialising with the other guests.

This place is great for those who want to spend days/evenings outside and enjoy some piece and quiet (we didn't even use iPod).

Well-travelled I'd rarely recommend places to people as i find it risky - even with the closest of family/friends. I've already told people about this place.

Belisimo!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed on the top floor apartment for four weeks, and I have just returned back to the UK after a memorable stay. It was very hard to pack the bags into the car for the long drive home, and we will most certainly be coming back.

The location is perfect - quiet, rural but always something happening. Long lazy walks in different directions meet with wildlife, discoveries and adventure. Castel is situated perfectly within reach of lots of attractions, as we had decided to spend no more than one hour in the car - we did not get a change to see everything we wanted, but what we did see we loved.

Highlights for me were the thermal baths, epecially San Fillipo and Petrioli, Sovana, Monte Amiaca, San Fiora and Albarece. However, speak to Paulo as whatever question I threw at him, he had the answer - the man is a guru in this area, and his knowledge of this place really helped set this place apart.

One thing I would like to add is that Paulo and his brother Stefano were brilliant and helping with every little detail of our stay, and they contributed hugely to what has been our most memorable holiday to date.

Perfect accomodations, perfect host

  • 5 of 5
Everything about my stay at this Tuscany Farmhouse was perfect. The accomodations are well maintained and well appointed, and are as represented in the photos and descriptions. The host - Paolo - made sure all our needs were met. As a little extra, yo make our trip really special, we arranged for Paolo to take us on hiking day trips throughout Tuscany - and to even provide a knitting instructor. Not only would I recommend this property to anyone considering renting a house in Tuscany - I am seriously considering returning to stay there again next year because I had such a good time.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
We spent nearly 2 weeks here and can highly recommend for anyone wanting a comfortable, relaxing, peaceful holiday. Ample space, well fitted and especially convenient for 2 families as one can take the ground floor and the other the upstairs flat and have complete privacy. The views are splendid and the air refreshing, even on a hot day. Well planned for outdoor living with pool, barbecue, pizza oven and outside furniture.. we will go back there for sure!

Great location, quality people

  • 5 of 5
Paolo and his brother Stefano were gracious hosts, welcoming us with homemade wine and olive oil. Their hospitality was extended throughout the Mt. Amiata region, which is just south of the main tourist thoroughfares and is therefore less trafficked, less crowded, and less expensive.

Castel del Piano makes a wonderful base of exploration, relatively short (though very windy) drives to Montalcino, Pienza, Orvieto, Siena and La Marema on the coast.

Perhaps the best part about the home, however, is the Dorcia Valley itself, a deeply lush reserve where everything from wild fennel to blueberries grows in the open. If you walk down the path to the base of the valley, you'll even find a fresh-water stream that makes for idyllic bathing in the hot summer months. We joked about having our Adam and Eve moment, frolicking in the gentle currents amid a steep marble ravine.

We loved the home's wood-fired oven, and the big windows that swung out from the stone walls, letting in the sunlight and fresh Tuscan air. At night we could hear the clatter of goats and the occasional trundling cow.

This rural home is perfect for urban dwellers sick of traffic, noise and people. Just take a glass of Stefano's wine, climb up on the deck overlooking the valley, and enjoy. It's the Tuscan vacation we dreamed about and were lucky enough to experience.
