Wonderful Tuscan farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks at Il Giogo, it is an ideal location, you have the quietness of the countryside, but you are not far from the city of Arezzo which is ideally situated to visit the many wonderful places in Tuscany. The apartment sits behind a secure, gated entrance and is part of a charming old farm house that has been renovated. Il Giogo is exactly as in the photos, the accommodation was great, a real home from home with all the amenities that you needed for a relaxing holiday.

We were a family of four with two older teenagers, so the three bedrooms were just what we needed to give our older children some space and privacy, the apartment would easily sleep 9 though.

We visited in summer, so the air conditioning and the swimming pool in its beautiful surroundings were most welcome, especially after a day out sight seeing or even just having a lazy day by the pool. The pool is ideal for children, not to deep, but deep enough for the adults to be able to cool off on hot summer days.

Ilaria and Massimiliano were always quick to reply to our many questions when we were booking, they were wonderful hosts nothing was too much trouble, whether it was anything to do with the appartment or advising us on places to visit or where the local supermarkets, restaurants or the best gelato was to be found.

We would highly recommend this apartment and our hosts, Ilaria, Massimiliano and their family, who made us feel at home in their lovely Tuscan farmhouse.

No scelta migliore per famiglie con bambini

  • 5 of 5

La nostra permanenza al Giogo e' stata come se non meglio di come ce l'aspettavamo. La posizione e' ottima essendo a 5min di macchina da arezzo eppure immersi nella campagna, nella quiete. Gli spazi interni sono ben tenuti, puliti e ben distribuiti, curati e funzionali. Lo spazio fuori e' grande, ideale per far giocare bambini e massimiliano e Ilaria e i loro figli sono stati fantastici, amichevoli, discreti ma sempre disponibili. Non solo la casa, ma l'ambiente tutto ha reso la permanenza memorabile. Raccomandiamo il Giogo a chi voglia assaporare la campagna Toscana, svegliarsi con canto degli uccelli, con la convenienza di esser vicini a centri abitati e negozi, ma nella quiete di una casa colonica ben ristrutturata, e servizi di prim'ordine.

Owner's Response: Daniele e la sua simpaticissima famiglia sono stati nostri graditissimi ospiti in luglio. Si è creato subito un ottimo rapporto e soprattutto i bambini hanno stretto amicizia e giocato insieme quotidianamente. La loro educazione, mitezza e il rispetto assoluto degli ambienti a disposizione ne fanno degli ospiti modello. E' per questo che li raccomandiamo fortemente per futuri hosts e noi stessi ci auguriamo di poterli accogliere nuovamente. Li ringraziamo di cuore per le belle parole e gli apprezzamenti fatti.

Feel at home in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

"What a beautiful and spacious appartment", was out first thought when we arrived at Il Giogo. We stayed for 2,5 weeks and this stay was wonderful! The family was so nice and the food they made us was delicious!

The appartment was very good located for different trips. We visited Arezzo, Anghiari, Assisi, Cortona, Perugia, Lago Trasimeno, La vialla (go there for good lunch!), monte San Savino, Montepulciano and Loro Ciufenna.

Also our kids had a very good time at Il Giogo. For kids there is enough to play with and the terrain and the pool are fenced, which gave us a very safe feeling.

I can recommend Il Giogo to eveybody! If we ever go to Arezzo again, we will certainly stay at il Giogo!

A quite oasis in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

This was just the place we were hoping to find for our week in Tuscany. Located close to the A1 (about 10-15 minutes) it is ideal for day trips to places like Florence or Sienna; while still offering the peace and quiet of the country. The apartment itself is spacious with a king, a queen, a double, a twin and bunk beds. Two bathrooms with showers, a well appointed kitchen and the use of a washer and dryer definitely make this apartment feel like home. A great place for families with small children or teenagers thanks to the large fenced in yard and gated pool. The large local supermarket, IperCoop, is about a 10 minute car drive form the house and has everything (and more) that you will need for your stay; from fresh produce, meats and baked goods to clothing and electronics, all of which are reasonably priced. What impressed us most was the hospitality shown to us by our hosts Massimiliano and Ilaria. They were more than helpful offering directions, sightseeing options and suggestions for transportation months before we even arrived. They made it their priority that we lacked for nothing during our stay and we especially appreciated the tasty treats our hosts surprised us with almost every evening; particularly Ilaria's chocolate-apple coffee cake. We will definitely stay with Massimiliano and Ilaria again if we ever have the opportunity to return to Tuscany.

Owner's Response: We strongly recommend Stefano and his cheerful and nice family. Guests were excellent, polite, tidy and respectful environments available to them. When we meet these families consider ourselves lucky and we strive to make their stay as comfortable as possible. If one day they will return to Tuscany we will be honored to welcome them to our villa. We wish them all the best. .

Excellent Place for our Family!

  • 5 of 5

Before we arrived at Casa Giogo, we knew this would be a great place for our family. Massimiliano and Ilaria were very helpful answering our questions from the USA. And after arrival, it exceeded all our expectations. The place both inside and outside is clean and well-kept. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms and kitchen are recently renovated and there is much space outside in the yard for children to play whether it be jumping on the trampoline, swimming in the pool or soccer games in the yard. The yard is also secured with a fence, so it was good to know our littlest children could not escape. The pool also has a fence around it.

Just outside of Arezzo, this is an excellent location in the heart of Tuscany with easy access to the A1 autostrada (10 minutes away) and easy day trips to places like Florence, Siena, Assisi, and Orvieto. The house is in the beautiful, quiet countryside but only a seven minute drive to a Super Target-like store (called IperCoop) and about ten to twelve minutes into the historic center of Arezzo itself.

Most of all, Massimiliano and Ilaria are very kind and hospitable, making our family feel very welcome. Our children loved playing with theirs, and we enjoyed getting to know their family. I would recommend this place to any friend I know traveling to Tuscany and we hope to return to Casa Giogo someday ourselves. Grazie Massimiliano e Ilaria!

Ottimo per famiglie

  • 5 of 5

Ho soggiornato nella struttura per tre giorni con la mia famiglia. I proprietari sono gentili e disponibili, l'appartamento Caminetto bello e ben curato. Bellissimo il giardino (molto apprezzato dai miei figli il campo da calcio), peccato che la stagione invernale non ci abbia permesso di goderne. Ottima posizione a 5 minuti da Arezzo e comoda per raggiungere molte altre località interessanti.
