  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Very comfortable, beautiful home. Great owners who were very helpful to us.

Enjoyed Most:

The grounds and the view are spectacular. You feel like you are living a dream in Tuscany!

Enjoyed Least:

Lack of screens in some bedrooms.

Surrounding Area:

The views, beautiful walks along dirt roads flanked by vineyards, olive groves, and rolling hills.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Villa is in a very small town with one restaurant within walking distance. To get to Castelfiorentino we took a taxi.

Tips or Restaurants:

Bring a flashlight for the walk back from the local restaurant.

Directions:

We called a taxi from the train station.

Check In Out:

Maria was there to greet us and on our last day she was there promptly to check us out.

Exceptional!...

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Exceptional!

Enjoyed Most:

The property is beautifully landscaped and maintained. The inside of the house had all the extras we didn't know we missed until we arrived at Casa Fascinante. Having the use of a CD player with music was certainly a plus for us. Wonderful selection of CDs--just the kind of music you want while visiting Tuscany! Maria and her family are wonderful.

Surrounding Area:

You are in the middle of olive groves and some vineyards and, of course, surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of the Chianti region. Beautiful setting.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castelfiorentino is the nearest town and not within walking distance. The Coop is a good-sized store and had everything we needed for cooking.

Directions:

It's a bit tricky to find but we didn't have GPS so maybe that would have helped.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

This is a great property and the location suited us. We had a rental car which you would need in order to see the surrounding area. The train station in Castelfiorentino make it easy to get to Florence and Pisa.

Enjoyed Most:

The Villa was nice and clean with plenty of space for the 8 of us. the bathrooms were nice; the overall Villa was well thought out for tourist

Enjoyed Least:

Not a thing.

Surrounding Area:

The walk around the villa area and the views were something you see in a movie.

Nearby Events or Locales:

You could walk to the nearest town but, it would be a long walk for middle-aged people or little kids.

Tips or Restaurants:

The town of Castelfiorentino is a nice little town to walk around The COOP supermarket has everything you need. There are so many good places to eat in the area and the owner of the villa can provide you with a great meal. Maria and her daughter do a great job of cooking and serving the meal.

Directions:

we called when we got to town and the owner came to guide us to the house.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

We had a wonderful time at the Casa Fascinante. We were four couples and there was plenty of room for all of us. The owners were gracious and hospitable. Maria went out of her way to make my birthday dinner memorable, even whipping up a chocolate cake on very short notice. Federica spoke English and was always helpful.

Enjoyed Most:

The garden and pool area were beautiful and well-maintained. The views were gorgeous, and even though the house was surrounded by other houses, the landscaping provided privacy.

Enjoyed Least:

The property is advertised as having bug screens, however only half of the windows had them. The front door was also very hard to open with the key provided. Overall we thought these were minor problems.

Surrounding Area:

The villa was well situated for day trips. We were situated between Pisa, Florence and Siena and could reach them easily. We also took the train from Castelfiorentino into Florence several times.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Castelfiorentino was about 3 km. away. The train station is next to the tourist information office and you can buy tickets for the train there if they are open. Otherwise the Bar across the street sells them and there are automated ticket machines on the platforms also. There is a parking lot by the train station where we would leave our car for day trips.

Tips or Restaurants:

The CoOP was a supermarket chain that was in almost every town. It was handy for stocking up on toilet paper, etc. In general the kitchen was well stocked with cutting boards and even some spices. We were able to prepare meals easily.

The bathroom towels were new and were very thin probably for fast drying in the high humidity. Some persons might prefer to bring their own towel, as the bathroom towels were the thickness of kitchen dish towels.

Map

Located on the edge of the small hilltop village of Renai, this farmhouse for rent in Tuscany enjoys panoramic countryside views. In Renai there are a few houses and a restaurant. The nearby town of Castlefiorentino is only 3 km away and has a train station, supermarket, several banks, post office, pharmacies, a hospital and several shops. For a larger town, Certaldo, with a population of about 15,000, has all the necessities combined with small-town charm. Pick up groceries or eat out in the modern section and spend the rest of your day exploring Certaldo Alta, the old medieval village. If you come in July you may find yourself in the midst of a lively Renaissance festival, complete with street artists, actors, musicians, and more. And don't forget to get your fill of medieval architecture! You can explore the Pretorio Palace or marvel at the profile Certaldo castle cuts across the sky. Like museums? You may want to visit the house of Giovanni Boccaccio (author of the Decameron). If you're looking for a little more variety, day trips will take you to San Gimignano, Florence, Siena and Pisa.
