We had a fantastic week staying at Casa Farnia C

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week staying at Casa Farnia C.

I don't think we could have improved on our first time staying in Tuscany - it exceeded all our expectations and we would have no hesitation in returning nor in recommending this to our friends.

Everything was excellent.

Marco and Silvia were super hosts - very welcoming and always available to help. The wine from the vineyard was excellent and it was a lovely touch leaving a bottle there on our arrival.

Summer In Italy was really really good - very proactive in communications and with useful helpful tips. Clearly you take your work seriously but with a big element of fun which was really refreshing.

It's not often a place you book online exceeds expectations

  • 5 of 5

It's not often a place you book online exceeds expectations... In the case of Casa Farnia C, we were blown away by the setting, facilities and most of all, the people who looked after us for our week-long stay.

We hadn't realized that the property was set in a working, organic vineyard and that we would got a lavish breakfast each morning in an idyllic ancient Italian dining room.

Marco and Giacomo [the owners] made sure that everything (including a trip to the hospital!) was taken care of and that we would never forget our experience in Arezzo.

We left feeling like we had re-charged after three weeks of travel, and had experienced something truly special.
