The perfect place to stay while exploring Tuscany....

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely Tuscan cottage.

Great location, away from the tourist areas to enjoy real Tuscany, but at the same time close enough to all beautiful cities and locations you want to see in Tuscany.

The host Leane is wonderful, very attentive and thoughtful. Her tips and helpful hints made our stay even more enjoyable. From the olive oil mill to the bar next to the gas station which turned out to be our hangout for a great glass of local wine.

The cottage is equipment with everything you need and the views from the porch or the bedroom window are unbeatable.

Beautiful surroundings, thoughtful host, perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had the loveliest few days at Liane's home. We wanted a private spot that we could escape and enjoy Tuscany from, and we couldn't have chosen a better place. Tucked deep in the hills, nothing but greenery and trees and the sounds of nature surrounds us. We couldn't believe our luck.

From the moment we arrived until the very second we left, Liane was incredibly thoughtful and helpful. We were driving from Rome and encountered some troubles with our rental car, so we were taken off schedule, but Liane and her friend Aldo, who greeted us at the property, were more than accommodating. The home is so perfectly hidden we got lost and Aldo had to come fetch us--but he did so cheerfully, even though it was 9pm and dark outside! Once he showed us the little house on the land where we'd be staying, he brought us some bread and a carafe of wine--both so appreciated after a long day of driving! And that was just the start of the hospitality we were treated with over the course of three days: Liane brought us loaves of bread, and on the morning that we were leaving, she even brought us breakfast from the local bakery, and we had unlimited access to the kitchen garden a few metres away from the small house. She spent time with us and gave us really excellent recommendations for where and what to visit in the area and along the way to our next stop--she let us borrow travel books and maps. And, when we left, after she brought us breakfast, she even sent us off with a little bag of verbena tea--tea that she grew on the property!

The house itself is just perfect. It's well-equipped with absolutely everything we could possibly need. It is spotlessly clean and cosy, and the views are unbelievable. And we got as much privacy as we wanted--Liane and Aldo were attentive without being intrusive.

Our stay at Casa Cardeta was beyond everything we could've imagined, and we were so sad to say goodbye to it and Liane. We can't wait to return!

Toskana für Naturliebhaber

  • 5 of 5

Es war eine wunderbare Zeit auf einem riesigen Grundstück bei einer einfühlsamen Gastgeberin. Tagsüber unterhielten uns liebenswerte Hunde und Katzen, abends leuchteten die Bergdörfer herunter und lockten mit ihrem Schein. Und auf unseren Touren grüßte immer wieder der Monte Amiata mit seinen Herbstfarben herüber.Gern kommen wir einmal wieder.

Was für ein schöner Urlaub...

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben das kleine Häuschen "Casa Cardeta" für eine Woche gemietet und waren vollends zufrieden. Die urige Lage auf dem Hügel, die tolle Aussicht und die Natur drum herum, Liane´s Gastfreundschaft und ihre kleinen Aufmerksamkeiten (Wein, Marmelade, Früchte...) sowie auch ihre Tipps haben uns einen wunderschönen Urlaub beschert.

Auch Liane´s liebenswerten und verspielten Mitbewohner - die beiden kleinen Hunde und die zwei Katzen - , die uns häufig schon zum Frühstück auf der Terrasse aufsuchten, haben wir ins Herz geschlossen. Ebenso die umherwandernden Schafe sowie die Esel in der Nachbarschaft.

Die Lage der Casa Cardeta ist auch ein guter Ausgangspunkt, um die weitere südliche Toskana zu besichtigen. Viele Weingüter und interessante Ortschaften in der Nähe, und in knapp 1,5 Stunden ist man mit dem Auto am Meer.

Wer ein paar ruhige Urlaubstage inmitten prächtiger Natur und einer tollen Landschaft verbringen möchte, ist auf diesem schönen Fleckchen Erde bestens aufgehoben. Erholung ist garantiert!

Viele Grüße von Natalja und Christof

Abschalten & Genießen

  • 5 of 5

Idyllisches, ruhiges Häuschen mitten in der Natur und mit wunderschönem, Blick ins davor liegende Tal. Liane ist eine tolle Gastgeberin! Angenehm zurückhaltend, aber super herzlich und aufmerksam. Nachdem wir unsere Bücher vergessen hatten lag z.B. am nächsten Tag eine Auswahl aus ihren deutschen und englischen Büchern auf unserem Terrassentisch bereit, auf die Frage ob wir wohl ein paar Zweige Lavendel mitnehmen dürften hatten wir am Abreisetag eine ganze Tüte davon vor der Türe stehen. Wir können die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!

Casa Cardeta is close to both the peaceful places Arcidosso and Castel del Piano and away from the noise and bustle of everyday life. You will find no mass tourism here.

For all the peace and seclusion Casa Cardeta is also an ideal starting point for many interesting things to do on foot, by mountain bike or by car in the beautiful southern Tuscany. Hot thermal baths with pool or free in the landscape invite around Monte Amiata for a swim.

Around the Monte Amiata are many natural parks and the Art Garden of Daniel Spoerri is just around the corner

Supermarkets, greengrocers, bakers, health food stores ..... there are in neighboring towns, particularly orginell but the bar is Begname, about 2 km away, where you can comfortably eat breakfast on the terrace and really gets everything. On Sunday you can watch the locals playing cards over his shoulder.
