We were a party of nine and we loved the house! The town of Sarteano is charming and quaint. The house is situated in a beautiful spot, close to town to make it convenient but far enough that makes it quiet and relaxing . Perhaps our favorite thing about the house is the view and the beautiful gardens. We arrived the second week of April and Spring is just starting but with a couple of warm days the trees and flowers started to bloom! The house itself is beautiful and old with so many interesting little corners to discover. We were with five teenaged children and never felt cramped and all of us had our privacy. We cooked many meals in the kitchen, and while the oven was a challenge everything else was easy. Gabriella, the caretaker was prompt and friendly and met us at the house with fresh flowers and a beautiful cake. She didn’t speak a lot of English but we managed to communicate just fine. Overall, we had a lovely time and would stay again!
