Guestbook comments from the owner

“ Chris – Thanks so much for letting us use your incredible place in Roccatederighi. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, in large part because we were able to return to your wonderful home at the end of our days in Rome, Florence, Siena & Pisa – and the beach and lake -and the boat trip to Elba! We ate in all the Rocca restaurants and met many of the locals and resident visitors, enjoying it all tremendously. Ricardo was great and provided us with excellent service and support getting our bags into and out of the village – we loved the fiat! We hope to be able to return one day. Let us know if you make your way to Atlanta or northern Florida.

Enjoy and all best, Brad and Mary Lou.”

Fantastic views - highly recommended

  • 5 of 5
Our second visit. Interesting, well-equipped house with stunning all round views. Very quiet as it's in the Centro Storico so no cars. Several decent restaurants in the town and a good collection of shops. Lovely walks. Convenient for trips to Siena, Montalcino etc. Helpful local agent, Ricardo, is on the spot. We will certainly visit again.

"A first visit to this part of Tuscany. An interesting and nice little town with very friendly local people. The house is about 400m from the parking place and there is a bit of a slope to climb, to get there, but the reward is to stay in the "Centro Storico" with no traffic noise at all. The views are stupendous on a clear day, and it's a fascinating place to be when the weather is bad too, as the house disappears in the mists. It's a very interesting and old house but nicely modernised. A small secluded garden and also a top floor terrace with unbeatable views. A very helpful local agent, Ricardo. Little shops where the range, obviously, is limited, but they remember you, and there's no attempt at all to sock it to the tourists. Convenient for Siena and many ancient and little towns and villages. Helpful, well-organised and approachable owners. We will certainly be back

Superb Tuscan experience

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time staying at Casa Dell Artista. There were 5 of us - 2 married couples and a female friend all celebrating our 60th year.
Roccatederinghi is a spectacular but small village situated in central southern Tuscany. There are a number of very good cafe's and restaurants in the village as well as small local shops and a very good supermarket.
There is very little English spoken in the village but we were able to communicate very effectively with the locals who were extremely friendly and helpful. We just loved them.
The facilities in Casa Dell Artista are first rate. There is everything in the house which you could possibly need and it's position is just spectacular. We could not fault the house at all - it is a credit to the owners.
We enjoyed outings to Sienna, Massa Marittima , Grosseto and the beach but really we could have spent the whole of our week in the village. We tried all the cafe's and restaurants in the village and enjoyed every one of them.
We highly recommend Casa Dell Artista - it is the ultimate Tuscan experience.

Easter Break 2011

  • 5 of 5
We have used holiday rentals for many years with our family of four boys, and have visited Tuscany annually for several of them. This was our first visit to this region of Tuscany, and we were not disappointed.
The property, as always, was picked for it's seclusion, as we prefer to be far from the madding crowd and enjoy experiencing Italian life to the full.
The village was beautiful, quiet and peaceful, but with all the amenities we needed...fresh bread from the bakery, fresh fruit and veg, butcher, etc. and with a little "corner shop" just a few steps down the street from the property.
The property itself was just as described, the views alone were worth it, simply breathtaking...everything you needed for two weeks self catering was provided, down to the washing line and clothes pegs! The little patio garden adjoined to the house was a little sun trap, and sheltered from the wind which was bracing at times!
Ricardo was a mind of information and gave us lots of useful tips and information on local villages, architecture and sight seeing...the boys thoroughly enjoyed a half day bike excursion with him, the highlight of their trip...
The area is stunning, and although we still managed a drive to Florence, Sienna and Pitigliano, there is really no need, as you are spoilt for choice for places to visit...the coast, the mountains, national park etc.
All in all a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday, we will definitely return to this beautiful part of Tuscany, and almost certainly to Casa Dell Artista...
John, Andrea, Harry and Jake...

Perfect summer holidays

  • 5 of 5
A very nice apartment in a beautiful village, located in the heart of the southern Tuscany. Perfect for trips to the sea or to historic places and cities (Siena, Grosseto, Massa Marittima, Montepulciano, Volterra ...) or just to relax and take walks trough the village itself.
Well equipped and easy to handle, everything well described by Chris, the owner.
Contact with Chris was always easy and uncomplicated. He also supplied us with detailled plans of the town and the surroundings so we could easily find Roccatederighi and Riccardo, the friendly and helpful resident who arranged the transport of our luggage (5 persons) from the car to the flat and back.
Time went by too fast but one more thing to say is that although it was July the Maremma was not overcrowded by tourists. This part of the world still seems to be an insiders' tip.
We can recommend that place to everybody

Great character, friendly helpful owners

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 5 (2 adults, 10 yr old, 9 yr old and 5 yr old) had a great relaxing stay here around Easter time. The weather was ideal for us, not too hot or cold, and the roads and towns were probably much quiter than during the height of the season, so there were no problems getting parked wherever we went. The house has probably the best setting in the village, with the balcony from the main bedroom just perfect for a first view of the morning or at any time through the day - spectacular. The house was well equipped and everything worked as it should.
The village itself had all the shops and restaraunts you could want in a place such as this, and we would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing Tuscan break.
Chris, the owner, communicated with us brilliantly throughout our booking and we really appreciated his helpful instructions both before the visit and within the house itself.
