TUSCANY'S BEST KEPT SECRET!

Tuscany's best kept secret!
  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from a wonderful week in Tuscany staying at La Casetta. We had high expectations of the accommodation before we arrived given the photographs, reviews and the description of the house not to mention the information that Anne provided prior to our arrival but that still did not prepare us for the beautiful location of the house with panoramic views of the Tuscan landscape. The house was very well equipped and comfortable for 6 adults and 1 baby and was absolutely sparkling clean and tidy. The gardens were well maintained and just a lovely peaceful place to have breakfast or to sit with a cold drink and admire the views. My husband and I have visited Italy many times but I have to say that we were overwhelmed by the beauty, scents and sounds that attacked our senses while staying at La Casetta. The facilities (the pool, boules area and tennis court) are well maintained. Nearby Castellina in Chianti provides good facilities, a co-op supermarket, grocer, bank, pharmacy, restaurants and various other small shops to entice and delight visitors. The local restaurants in nearby villages such as Lornano and Reserva di Fizzano are worth trying as they are of a very high standard and serve dishes using local produce. There are many places to visit within a 30-40 minute drive including Siena, San Gimignano and the much smaller Greve, Radda, Gaiole, not to mention the local vineyards that surround the property. I very rarely wish to return to the same holiday location as I have so many places that I would like to visit but I would definitely make an exception here as I loved it so much that I didn't want to leave!

TUSCAN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I have just returned from our 7th visit to this perfect haven in Tuscany. We have been every year since 2005 at various times of the year and the biggest problem we always have is coming home and deciding when we should go next!

We lead fairly busy lives and La Casetta is the perfect location to escape to especially if you feel the need to recharge the batteries.

We normally fly to Pisa, but on this occasion we flew to Rome, spent some time there and then made our way up to Tuscany. Both car journies are very straight forward with the trip from Rome only taking between 2 to 3 hours.

If you enjoying walking there are several walks that you can choose from. Our favourite is the uphill climb to Fonterutoli, stopping for a drink and a bite to eat at the restaurant and then the stroll back down - around 5 to 6 miles in total.

If you have never been to Tuscany I think you will be hard pushed to find somewhere better to rent and I would never hesitate to recommend it.

PERFECTION

  • 5 of 5
My family (wife & two young children) has stayed at this property for 6 consecutive years, always during the Easter school holidays. We fly to Pisa (BA / Easyjet / Ryanair) and hire a car for the 1hr 40min drive. We absolutely love the place.

The location is unbeatable - on top of a hill with stunning views over picture postcard rolling countryside. It is within very easy striking distance of all the major attractions - (Siena, Florence, San Gimignano etc.) and the nearest town, Castellina-in-Chianti, is a regular draw whether for coffees, ice-cream, restaurants or the butcher.

The property is one of eight that have been developed very thoughtfully from a farming hamlet. Although all the properties have their own gardens and enjoy great privacy, the grounds are managed as a single estate and this gives a great sense of "completeness".

We are always impressed by the constant upkeep of the grounds and the (shared) tennis court and pool are first rate.

The property itself is spacious and well laid out, yet very homely. Everything is clean and well maintained. The decor and fixtures and fittings are of a high quality, with all the esssentials - dishwasher, washing machine, BBQ, asparagus steamer (!) etc. The private terrace and gardens soak up an unrivalled vista.

However, It is clearly much more than just a rental property. It has very much a family feel to it and the owner has always been tremendously friendly and helpful.

For the last two years some family friends (also with two young children) have rented one of the adjacent properties. This place is a regular fixture in our calendar and is highly recommended.

TUSCAN TREASURE

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week at this property. Although the home has room for six people we were only four. This home is VERY well loved by the owners and has all of the comforts that one could desire. From the first day that we contacted the owners we were treated with respect and honest discourse in all manners of the rental process.We will be back in the future when ever we visit this area. Wonderful home !!!!

A TUSCAN IDYLL

  • 5 of 5
We have just returned from our second visit to this house in eight months and were delighted to be back in this wonderful place.

The house is far more than a holiday rental; it is a family home, furnished beautifully with a mixture of modern classics and simple antiques. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need to cook a delicious Tuscan feast and the house is surrounded by vineyards. What more could one want?

The estate itself is wonderfully maintained and sitting outside on one of the glorious terraces, surrounded by flowers, is unbeatable, especially when you catch a glimpse of San Gimignano shimmering in the distance!

There are many wonderful towns and villages nearby with restaurants ranging from the simplest pizzeria to the most luxurious "grown-up" cuisine. The owner kindly provides a really useful lists of restaurants, both local and further afield, several of which we have been delighted to sample.

This is the prettiest part of Tuscany by far and La Casetta is our best rental experience in the nearly 25 years we've been taking this type of holiday.

We have a wonderful 2 week stay at this property. Thoroughly enjoyed the peace and tranquility and getting away from it all. A car is essential if your planning on staying - we flew in 2 yrs ago and hired a car, but this year we drove down to Tuscany from Leeds, England. A very good journey and even enjoyable. Property is well maintained and fully equipped. Take plenty of mosquito products if going in the summer months. Overrall - would highly recommend.
