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!

Una settimana in assoluto relax

  • 5 of 5

È il luogo ideale per passare del tempo nella natura a non più di cinque minuti dalla strada principale di Arcidosso.

Noi lo abbiamo amato per la sua semplicità ma nello stesso tempo ricerca dei dettagli, possiamo testimoniare un ambiente elegante, pulito, con cucina attrezzata ed accogliente (abbiamo alloggiato nell'appartamento più indipendente alla struttura).

C'è molto piaciuto il paesaggio per niente costruito, ma vero, dove poter assaporare la vita di quei luoghi, tra alberi da frutto e animali.

Vogliamo consigliare anche dei siti d'interesse, quali: Pitigliano, Sovana, Sorano, il monte Labbro e molti altri, tra cui l'Amiata, anche se quest'ultima metà per i nostri canoni risulta troppo sfruttata.

Terminiamo col parlare della proprietaria, gentile e molto disponibile, anche con il nostro amato Pedro, Sharpei di 10 anni.

Sicuramente più avanti ci torniamo.

Idylle in den toskanischen Bergen

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben eine sehr schöne Woche im kleinen aber feinen Ferienhäuschen von Liane und Aldo verbracht. Lage, Ausblick und Ausstattung ließen keine Wünsche offen. In der Nacht tausend Sterne, am Morgen Schafe im Olivenhain und am Tage die Gesellschaft gemütlicher Katzen und eines kleinen Hundes. Davon waren nicht nur wir, sondern auch unser kleiner Sohn begeistert. Die Vermieter helfen bei allen Fragen, auch nach Pizzeria oder Strandauswahl. Nicht zu vergessen die Begrüßung mit Wein (Trauben und Flasche!) und selbstgekochter Marmelade! Alles in allem können wir das gemütliche Häuschen nur weiterempfehlen.

Idylle in den toskanischen Bergen

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren für eine Woche in dem kleinen, schön renovierten und gut ausgestatteten Haus, das mit seinen zwei Terrassen, Panoramafenster Richtung Berge und herrlicher Ruhe (die nur von den Glöckchen der im Olivenhain grasenden Schafe unterbrochen wird) keine Wünsche offen lässt. Das sehr nette Vermieter-Paar wohnt nebenan und hilft bei Fragen zur Strand- oder Pizzeriaauswahl. Zur Begrüßung gibt es nicht nur selbst gemachte Marmelade, sondern auch Wein und frisches Obst aus dem Garten! Wir haben uns mit unserem 8 Monate alten Sohn sehr wohl gefühlt und können die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Für unseren Sohn gab es neben einem kleinen Hund auch Katzen und Esel zu bestaunen. Wer dort übernachtet, sollte in jedem Fall den Skulpturenpark von Daniel Spoerri im nahegelegenen Seggiano ansehen.

Vielen Dank an Liane und Aldo für die schönen Tage!

Unsere Flitterwochen

  • 5 of 5

Liebe Liane, lieber Aldo,

unsere Flitterwochen im August wollten wir gerne in der Toskana verbringen. Dabei haben wir das erste Mal über FeWo-direkt gebucht.

Die traumhaften Bilder auf eurer Seite haben uns beide überzeugt.

Und jetzt im Nachhinein können wir sagen; Wir haben keine Sekunde bei euch bereut.

Ihr habt uns am Tag der Anreise, leider wurde diese durch eine gesperrte Autobahn ziemlich verzögert, unheimlich herzlich aufgenommen.

Wir durften sogar mit euch zu Abend essen und dazu ein Glas Wein trinken.

Wir haben uns schlicht und ergreifend wie zuhause gefühlt.

In den darauffolgenden Tagen hatten wir sehr viel Gelegenheit die zauberhafte Landschaft zu erkunden.

Aber sind wir mal ehrlich. Selbst wenn wir nicht das Anwesen verlassen hätten und den Urlaub im Garten verbracht hätten wäre auch das der absolute Traum.

Die Natur ist einfach wunderschön. So wie wir uns die Toskana vorgestellt haben.

Euer Hund, die Katzen, die Nachbars-Esel und die Schafe, welche morgens bei uns waren werden wir so schnell nicht vergessen.

Ihr wart zu keiner Zeit aufdringlich. Aber auch zu keiner Zeit zu zurückhaltend. Ihr wart einfach perfekt.

Ihr habt uns bei Fragen immer weitergeholfen, uns Tipps gegeben, Restaurants empfohlen oder auch frische leckere Tomaten zum Kochen vorbei gebracht.

Vielen lieben Dank für alles.

Ihr habt euch ein wunderschönes Zuhause aufgebaut, welches Ihr mit Besuchern teilt. Danke, dass wir daran teilhaben durften.

Wir möchten euch gerne kommendes Jahr wieder besuchen.

Viele Grüße von Michael und meiner Frau Jasmin

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.
