completely wonderful. exceeded expectations
owners are lovely, and the property is excellent: clean, spacious, centrally located, great kitchen, laundry on site, plenty of space to be alone or to be together... 1 mile from town which was a quaint area with bakery, market, church and bar/ restaurants. we traveled from Cinque Terre by car ( about 2 hours) , stopped in Lucca for lunch and a bike ride before heading to Tuscany. owners are great cooks and great hosts!
(careful to arrive before night -the GPS struggled a bit - there is a large cemetery /mausoleum about 3 blocks from the property and this would have been a good mile-marker for identifying that we were within a few blocks of the property)
Heaven in Tuscany
Thank you Luca, Lutizia, and Mama Luca. What a great and wonderful time. Quiet, comfortable, relaxing, and beautiful. You need a car to get around. The COOP store in town has everything you need including great steaks and chops and pasta that we made at the villa thanks to Mama Lucca helping us start the great outdoor grill. We can't say enough thank you's to Lucca for taking us on a wonderful tour to Montepulciano and La Foce Gardens. It was awesome. Thank you for a trip we will never forget.
Luca and letticia were wonderful hosts. The rental was very nice
thanks al lot enjoy at Lerici
Fantastic house. Great hosts. Highly recommend.
Casalta is a great place. We stayed 4 weeks & had friends visit. Luca & Letisia are terrific. They will help you in everything
The town has a great patisserie/cafe.
15 minutes from Siena. Great place to travel in car all around Tuscany. Drive or take train from Siena.
We will go back there next time we go to Tuscany.
Perfect stay in Tuscany!
We had the pleasure of staying 2 nights (we wish we had more time) at Casa Alta in San Rocco A Pilli in the Le Rose apartment. Luca and Letizia were SUPER hosts (even better than the Super Tuscany wine we drank). They went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Le Rose is spacious and the patio was a great place to have a nice meal.
We swam in the pool and soaked up the sun in the pool deck. While we rode the property's bikes into town (approximately 1.5 km), a rental car would be helpful to tool around. We hopped in taxis, or hitched rides with Luca (loved the Panda!).
We had a lovely wine tour arranged by Luca and had one of the best meals of our life. We recommend the pasta with truffles -- delizioso!!!
We shipped some of the wine back to the USA for what we felt was reasonable after shipping from other places.
Siena was quite close and we ate at 2 restaurants recommended to us by Luca- both really tasty.
Luca, thanks again for giving so much of your time and sharing your lovely home. We had wonderful stay and would definitely return☺
We had a too short visit in San Rocco a Pilli. Luca and Letizia are wonderful hosts. We stayed in the middle unit, La Rose. We were a group of 6. There are three rooms on the second floor, three double beds, one room has an extra single. The attic has a futon, and two singles. There is one bath in the attic, two on the second floor and one on the main floor. The accommodations are spotless, well decorated and comfortable. Luca is the architect who resurrected this 17th century barn. His creativity and vision are remarkable. The pool allows a splendid view of the countryside.
San Rocco a Pili has a good size grocery, a wonderful bakery, cafes and charm. It is a quick drive in to Siena and one hour to Florence. You are not far from many other lovely towns, wineries, thermal springs.
Luca speaks English very, very well. He is very helpful with suggestions and advice. I highly recommend this property for your holiday!
