A piece of Heaven in Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

Just finished a week at this place and loved it. It is everything that the description says and more. Quiet, clean, comfortable and of course beautiful. The view from the living room is awesome and one never tires from seeing the mountains in the distance. Lucia's hospitality goes overboard and her English is great if you have google translate. The only negative would be the windy mountain roads getting to the house. If you are intimidated by such, this may be the deal breaker. Would definitely return no hesitations!

Gorgeous property in excellent condition! Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

The views alone are enough reason to stay here! One can see immediately that this property is maintained to the highest standards - beautiful lighting, landscaping, well loved! The spacious interior of our unit with two comfortable bedrooms separated by floors gave lots of privacy. Lucia, the hostess on site, is an angel! Be prepared for a language barrier but it can be done! :-) I will remember her goodbye hug forever! ❤️ Claudio was also easy and quick with communication and flexibility when needed. The sunsets were unbelievable! We were pinching ourselves to be staying at such a beautiful place! Yes, it was a long drive to and from many of the places we visited but pulling back into Villa Cassaforte made it worthwhile!

Great newly renovated villa

  • 5 of 5

Really great place to stay and reasonable cost. Location is very nicely situated between wine country and florence. Florence is just 50 min north by car, montepulciano is about 50 south by car. Villa views are stunning. Lucia made check-in easy. Highly recommended. I'd come back.

Luxurious 2 bedrm which had (almost) everything we could ask for, and Lucia provided great service!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this apartment. We were a couple with a 3.5 year old girl so it was a large place but we had wanted space so this apartment which was modern but yet had the feel of Tuscan hills. We love the two big bay windows in our living room, and the views these windows afforded was the highlight of our stay!

The location of this property was close to the Loro Ciuffenna town, which is a must visit. We spent a good lazy late morning there, and the town people were lovely.

Lucia was very helpful and attended to (most of) our needs but her English is non-existent but we managed well. She was very nice to us, and would give us some fruits/vegetables from the gardens. The apartment had everything we looked for, except for wifi.

Negative: The wifi was not working during our days we were there, and no steps was taken by the owner or agent to fix this even though we complained many times. After 4 days, we were told that previous tenants (there are 6-7 rented apartments in the entire compound) had used up the 150 GB data plan for the entire month, and to wait for August 1 data plan (for the compound) to kick in. On that evening, we had wifi but only I am seated by the front door, but no where else. It was basically the case through out the rest of 3 more days. We asked our neighbours, and they had data without any problem so a bit disappointed with lack of response/help especially when I had needed to check work emails.

Would we come back again? Definitely yes but this time, we will arm ourselves with lots of data plans so we could have our own roaming data.

Extraordinaire

  • 5 of 5

Notre séjour à la Casa Forte a été formidable, tout était parfait! L appartement est parfait pour 2 couples, l appartement était super propre. C'est l endroit idéal pour découvrir la Toscane. La villa Casa forte, c est avant tout l accueil chaleureux et la bonne humeur de Luisa. Elle nous a aidé à régler un petit problème de contravention. Merci Luisa!

Paradise in Italy...

  • 5 of 5

This property was the highlight of our three week stay in Italy. We were there for eight nights and it was wonderful. The view, the view and the view again... WOW! Lucia is an amazing host. She gave us good information about the place and about the surrounding area. A car is required because we are a few kilometers from restaurants. The pictures do not reflect how beautiful it is. It is immaculate and very clean. Thanks Lucia for a wonderful stay at this property.
