Beautiful home in a sweet town!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Trequanda is the perfect place to stay while experiencing Tuscany. The home is luxuriously comfortable and fully-equipped, whether you want a home-away-from-home or just a place to rest between adventures. We ate in town and enjoyed the local community and picked up a few groceries to pack a picnic for our day trips to Pienza, Montisi, Montelpuciano, etc. The pictures don't do it justice - the view is amazing and the town charming. I highly recommend a visit!!

Tranquil Trequanda

  • 5 of 5

Casa Trequanda was lovely spot from which to explore Tuscany. There was so much to do (or not do) in easy day outings. Then to come back to the excellent views, food opportunities and friendly atmosphere of this tucked away village was wonderful. We hope to and plan to return.

Hidden Tuscan Gem

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for an authentic, off-the-beaten-path experience in Italy, you will find it in Trequanda, a 14th century small town in Tuscany. It has a casual café for breakfast and lunch, a pizzeria and gelateria, and a Zagat rated restaurant, Il Conte Matto, plus a bakery and a small market. The people are friendly and warm, the scenery beautiful. In less than an hour you can drive to Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino. Florence is an hour and a half away. Casa Trequanda is made up of two levels in a three story building. The second level has two bedrooms, one bath, an open kitchen, and eating and sitting area, along with a small balcony with an amazing view. The upper level has one bedroom, one bath, a sitting area, with a sink and microwave, and washer and dryer. Everything was new and clean and comfortable. Four of us stayed there for 10 days, and it was a terrific experience. I would definitely return.

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

Owner's Response: Thank you Edith and Rolf! We really enjoyed being able to show you 'la bella toscana'. And yes, Il Conte Matto is one of the great dining experiences in this region. Please come back again and take advantage of our repeat guest discount! Indra

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!
