  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Prima Casa is a fabulous villa set in the bucolic Tuscan countryside! We were so impressed with the villa the pictures don't do it justice! It felt like you were part of a 16th century documentary, just an amazing place! The villa was conveniently located between Florence and Siena, which was perfect for our daily outings.

Enjoyed Most:

I enjoyed the large bedrooms and modern, luxurious bathrooms, the pool, the living room, the outdoor areas, and, most of all, the views. It is an incredible place!

Enjoyed Least:

My least favorite thing was that there were only 3 stools in the kitchen (it was a great morning meeting area) and only 3 large coffee cups.

Surrounding Area:

The pastoral countryside, the neighborhood farms, the vineyards, and the wonderful views all made this a great place to stay.

Nearby Events or Locales:

The nearest small town was Staggia. It was not within walking distance.

Tips or Restaurants:

We were glad that we brought clothesline and clothes pins. The washer/dryer was brand new and worked very well but it was handy to have a place to hang out your clothes if they weren't quite dry.

Directions:

The directions were good. We also used our GPS. The road to the villa has several areas (the bridge) which are only one car wide. Be sure to look for the convex mirrors to help you see oncoming vehicles.

Check In Out:

Check in and check out went very smoothly. The caretaker couple are lovely people and offered to help us with any of our questions about the area.

  • 5 of 5

Overall:

Terrific! It is a very lovely villa - the online pictures don't do it justice. All the charm of an historic villa plus recent renovations that resulted in state-of-the-art bathrooms and kitchen. Great location for exploring Tuscany. Great support by the owner/caretaker.

Enjoyed Most:

The spacious rooms with charming décor. Modern spotless bathrooms (7 of them!) with rainfall showers. The lovely pool area. The views were amazing. The kitchen is state-of-the-art - terrific!

Enjoyed Least:

Nothing, really. The crowing roosters from the nearby property were slightly irritating a few mornings, but that was a very minor item.

Surrounding Area:

The location was perfect - very easy to get to Florence, Siena, and many of the lovely smaller Tuscan towns. The countryside around the villa was just gorgeous.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Staggia. Not really walking distance, but very close.

Tips or Restaurants:

There are several good restaurants in the towns around the villa. The owner provided a nice list of recommendations that we consulted daily. We contracted with Chef Matisse for two meals - he was amazing! The best meals we had during our 3 weeks in Italy. He is highly recommended.

Directions:

The directions were fine. We did use GPS.

Check In Out:

Check-In and Check-Out went very smoothly - no trouble at all. It was wonderful to have Tomaso, the owner/caretaker, and his lovely wife on the top floor. We hardly ever saw them, but knowing they were there if we needed anything was great.

Overall:

We had a great time!

We were 2 families of 5 (including 6 teenagers). We had plenty of room. The location is perfect for visiting much of western and central Tuscany.

Enjoyed Most:

The grounds and peace and quiet.

Enjoyed Least:

We didn't use the formal living rooms much.

Surrounding Area:

It was a great location.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Staggia Senese

Technically we could have walked, but we were up a steep hill and it was hot. We always drove.

Tips or Restaurants:

We didn't need anything special in the Villa - everything was there.

We loved Il Pozzo in Moterrigioni.

Be sure to explore the castle in Staggia - it had a really cool modern art exhibit.

Directions:

We didn't have any problems.

Once we found the property, we just used the name of the town as a reference in Google Maps.

Check In Out:

It was easy. Tomaso was very accommodating.

Overall:

It was a wonderful experience for our group of 12. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our time.

Enjoyed Most:

The view and the spaciousness of all the rooms. Also the hospitality of the owners.

Surrounding Area:

The views were incredible. We liked that Staggia was close enough to get most everything we needed.

Nearby Events or Locales:

Staggia. You could walk but it would have been quite a climb up the road back to the villa.

Tips or Restaurants:

Most everything we needed was provided.

Directions:

We did use a GPS to the property but I think we could have found it with the directions provided.

Check In Out:

Tomaso and Chiara were absolutely wonderful and we very much appreciated their hospitality. Both check in and check out were very smooth.

Map

The property is located two kilometers from Staggia, where there are general stores, and three kilometers from a train station in Castellina Scalo (a small line). Six kilometers away is Monteriggioni, a medieval village with shops, restaurants, and markets. The main piazza features a Romanesque church while streets leading to it are bordered by gardens and Renaissance-style houses. The Festa Medievale is held in July and in which people dress up in medieval costumes, listen to music, and put on live shows. A great day trip destination is Siena. This picturesque city is a wonderfully preserved example of the Tuscan Middle Ages, and a treasure trove of gothic palaces, churches, and museums. It's also well known for its bi-annual bareback horse races, the Palio, held once in July and once in August. You’ll also find good restaurants, fun shops, and beautiful architecture! Nearby Attractions: Staggio (general stores), Castellino Scalo (small train station – secondary line), Monteriggioni (shops, restaurants, cafes, Roman church, gardens, views of the countryside), Siena (Il Duomo, train station), San Gimignano (towers, 12th century Duomo, People’s Palace, museums, art galleries, restaurants, festivals), Florence (museums, shops, restaurants, Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio). Florence: 57 km/35.5 mi Greve in Chianti: 34 km/21 mi Siena: 20 km/12.5 mi San Gimignano: 21 km/13 mi Monteriggioni: 6 km/3.5 mi Castellina Scalo: 3 km/1.5 mi Staggia: 2 km/1 mi
