Overview

Roccastrada Castle Rental Photos and Description

La Civitella looks back upon a long and dramatic history. It belonged to one of the most powerful feudal families of Italy- the Aldobrandeschi - the famous Dante wrote about. The house is perched on top of a hill with a breathtaking panorama view of the Tuscany mountains reaching to the sea, 35 km away. It is surrounded by 10 acres of land - olive groves, vineyards and beautiful old cork and evergreen holly oak trees. Beauty as far as the eye can see. The apartment 'Piano Nobile' is in the main tract of the castle which has been beautifully restored, preserving the traditional ambience with mostly rustic or antique furniture in the old Tuscan style but incorporating modern comfort to ensure a special holiday. This unique castle and its vast out-of-doors space resemble a fairy-tale world.

Suitability:
  • children welcome
  • pets not allowed
  • suitable for elderly or infirm

Nur zu empfehlen !

  • 4 of 5

Wir, 3 Erwachsene waren vom 21.09.09 - 28.09.09 eingemietet.

Jeder hatte sein eigenes Schlafzimmer. Sehr urige Unterkunft.

Das Objekt enspricht der Beschreibung.Ruhige Lage. Wir sind

über den Flughafen Rom angereist, trotz ca.2 Std. Fahrt auch

problemlos. Die Burg liegt sehr zentral, ca. 30Min. nach Siena, ca. 1 Std. nach Florenz, die herrlichen, flachen Sandstrände erreicht man in ca.30 Min. Also rundum zufrieden. Leider war das TV-Gerät nur für RAI Sender zu gebrauchen ( keine SAT-Empfang) was uns doch etwas irritierte, da wir keine deutschen, oder auch intern.Sender empfangen konnten.

Die Vermieter ( auch Eigentümer) zeigten sich sehr freundlich

und zuvorkommend. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten ca. 5km entfernt (Coop-Supermarkt).

Wenn wir wieder etwas in dieser Gegend suchen, würden wir erneut dieses Objekt mieten.

3 zufriedenen Gäste aus Wien!

Es war wunderschön !

  • 4 of 5

Wir ( 5 Personen - davon 3 Kinder im Alter von 10 bis 16 Jahren) verbrachten 14 Tage in dem urgemütlichen Ambiente. Die Eigentümer sind sehr freundlich. Bruno (der Vater der Vermieterin) hat uns mit sämtlichen Köstlichkeiten aus seinem Garten verwöhnt. Das waren leckere Tomaten, Feigen, Melonen und hausgemachtem Wein. Toskana, wir kommen wieder! . . . das war der Kommentar von Sandra . . . jetzt kommt noch bissl was nach von mir . . .Die wunderschöne Hügellage hat uns vor grösseren Stechmücken-Angriffen bewahrt. Der Weg zum Meer . . . bzw. zum wunderschönen Strand in Castglione della Pescaia war trotz ca. 40 Minuten Fahrzeit absolut empfehlenswert. Trotzdem wäre es das "Gelbe vom Ei", wenn evtl. in den nächsten Jahren ein eigener Pool auf dem Gelände entstehen könnte. Dies wäre der einzige Punkt, der bei dieser Bewertung zu einem "Ausgezeichnet gefehlt hat hrhafter Traum ist der Himmel über diesem Anwesen. Es war herrlich nach einem langen Tag mit Besuchen in der näheren Umgebung einfach im Bett zu liegen, das grosse"Kemenaten-Fenster"weit geöffnet zu haben und in den sternenübersähten Himmel zu blicken. Ich wünsche mir, dieses Gefühl konservieren zu können. Auch Roccastrada hatte einen besonderen Charme, eine typische liebevolle Bäckerei mit täglich neuen Überraschungen, ein "ehrlicher" Menschenschlag. TOP ist auch die zentrale Lage, wenn man Siena, San Gimignano oder Toskana pur erleben möchte. Florenz oder Pisa sind auch ohne Probleme erreichbar. Ich wäre jetzt, da ich diese Bewertung scheibe gerne wieder dort und würde den liebend gerne wieder diesen warmen Boden unter meinen Füssen spühren - - - DANKE ! . . . Mille Granzie !
