Perfect location

We truly enjoyed the condo in Terquanda. The sunsets are awesome and the location perfect. We liked Conto Mato a lot and explored Tuscany everyday. Beautiful, Edith and Rolf

An absolute jewel location and experience for us. Hospitality in Trequanda superb and the apartment boasts exquisite views and a taste of Tuscan lifestyle. All amenities and accommodations fabulous! Diane & Indra prepared us well with local wineries & restaurants. Tuscan mornings and sunset evenings on the balcony one of our favorite memories. Hope to return again!

Awesome apartment and charming Tuscan town

  • 5 of 5

During our five night stay, my wife and I had an amazing time at the apartment in Trequanda. The apartment is easy to find and access, and has picture-perfect views of the Tuscan countryside. We really loved the town, and were frequent visitors of the bakery, cafe, and the delicious restaurant Il Conte Matto. We made a number of trips via car to various towns and wineries surrounding Trequanda, and found the apartment perfectly situated for our daily adventures. We truly wish we had more time to relax, and enjoy our time in Trequanda. If in the future we find our way back to this part of the world, we will most certainly look to stay at the apartment again.

wonderful apartment & beautiful town

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the apartment. Trequanda is a beautiful town, perfectly placed in the Tuscan countryside and within a short distance from Siena and Montepulciano. There are excellent vineyards around and the scenery is breathtaking. The restaurants in Trequanda and surrounding little towns are charming and the food is just wonderful.

A wonderful apartment in a beautifully quiet Tuscan town

  • 5 of 5

The property in Trequanda perfectly met the needs of our four member family (mother, father, and two teen boys) during our recent five day stay in Tuscany. I don't recall it being explicitly stated in the property description, but this is actually two apartments, a two bedroom w/kitchen, just below an attic apartment with no kitchen. The format worked just fine for us, with the boys taking the two bedrooms, with us above, but an unaware family with smaller children might be surprised by the locked separation. The apartments were both spotlessly clean, and everything was in proper working order. Beds were all very comfortable, and the kitchen was fully equipped, although we didn't use much more than the fridge for drinks and glassware. Still, the nearby market would make it pretty easy to put together a simple breakfast or lunch. Views from both apartments were stunning at all hours, day and night, and of our five nights in August, there was only one where we were hot and wishing the apartments had A/C; otherwise, the open windows and fans were completely adequate for cool nights. And there are no worries about open windows and excessive noise: Trequanda is INCREDIBLY peaceful with little excess road or neighborhood noise. With the exception of one night when a dog seemed to object to being left outside, silence was the norm. The owner was prompt and thorough with all advance communications and provided excellent directions where to park, how to get to the property, and how to access the key boxes to get in. While there was an identified contact just down the street, we didn't have any reason to visit, since there were no issues with the apartment. Trequanda, itself, is a great jumping off point for the surrounding area, but a peaceful way to start and end the day. I had looked at properties in more touristy towns (like Siena), but was very pleased we chose Trequanda instead. (Better to travel to the crowds, than live in the chaos.) The town has an excellent pizzeria, and another choice for dinner. A third osteria in the center of town is open for breakfast (wonderful and inexpensive), but we were never in the area for lunch. The town also offers a great bakery and butcher's shop, with friendly and helpful staff; well worth the time to find them both. I would have no hesitation in staying at this property again in the future.

Trequanda - Great Tuscany jumping off place

  • 5 of 5

Trequanda looks like it could be a movie set. Very charming. It's restaurants are great. Really liked getting fresh baked goods each morning from the Trequanda backery. The apartment was very well equipped. The panoramic view from the balcony is terrific. Olive groves, vineyards, and forests all strechted before you. The apartment was large enough for our 6 adults. We took day trips each day to various places in Tuscany and Umbria. All easily reached from Trequanda. The place has great doors and windows that keep the aid circulating nevertheless in the dead of summer air conditioning would-have been great. If you are looking for a place with great amenities friendly locals and away from most of the tourists Casa Trequanda is for you.
