un magnifique lieu de vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné à la villa le caggiole avec nos filles et leurs familles. C'est une magnifique villa bien agencée où le nombre (3 générations avec des petits-enfants parfois bien turbulents) ne se fait pas sentir. Tout y est décoré avec beaucoup de goût et très propre.

Le jardin est entretenu tôt le matin par Francesca, la propriétaire. La grande piscine,impeccable, a fait la joie de tous les petits-enfants...et des adultes. Deux endroits où prendre ses repas: à l'ombre d'un grand arbre avec vue sur la piscine ou sur une terrasse avec une superbe vue sur le paysage environnant, qui fait à juste titre la fierté de cette partie de la Toscane.

Nous avons pu savourer un délicieux repas préparé par une cuisinière locale... avec en bonus une charmante attention de la propriétaire à l'occasion de nos 40 ans de mariage. Nous avons apprécié la grande disponibilité de Francesca, toujours prête à faire le maximum pour rendre notre séjour magnifique...ce qu'elle a réussi haut la main!

Exceptional Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Villa Le Caggiole and would recommend it to anyone intending to visit this part of Italy. Situated near the beautiful hilltop town of Montepulciano the Villa itself was perfect for our group of 8 and the photos do not do justice to the beauty of the views and the Villa itself. The hosts, Francesca and Jim, were so gracious and provided some great recommendations and we would suggest that anyone who stays at the villa ask Francesca to arrange for a local cook to prepare and cook food for them for the evening, which was a real highlight. The location was perfect for us to explore this part of Tuscany, which includes the wonderful towns of Montepulciano, Montalcino and nearby Siena. Grazie Francesca and Jim. We cannot wait to visit again.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

Villa La Caggiole exceeded our every expectation and we hope to return soon. Francesca and Jim were gracious and welcoming hosts, who made us feel completely at home during our time there - it felt like we were staying at a friend's guest house rather than a property managed by total strangers. We have stayed in many vacation properties rented on VRBO and similar sites in Europe and the US, and have generally had very positive experiences, but Villa La Caggiole is incomparably the best we've encountered and the first we've reviewed.

The Villa is spacious and elegantly appointed, but homey and comfortable at the same time. We were a party of four adults and one toddler, so we barely used half the house and it could have easily supported a party several times our size. The rooms are all tastefully decorated, the bathrooms are modern and clean, and the kitchen is perfectly provisioned - it was a joy to cook there during our stay.

The Villa and its grounds are immaculately maintained - Francesca diligently cleans the pool daily and the landscaping was thriving despite the summer heat: it was never less than 100 degrees during our stay, so we were very glad of the pool and the natural air conditioning afforded by the house's insulating stonework and high perch above the surrounding vineyards. We ate every day on the Villa's terrace with its breathtaking views overlooking the Val di Chiana towards Arezzo, Cortona and the Central Apennine Mountains - it was easy to loose your sense of time drinking in the scenery.

The Villa is conveniently located just off the main road between Montepulciano proper and Montepulciano Stazzione in the valley, but it is tucked in a secluded grove at the end of a long driveway, so privacy and road noise were never an issue. Conveniently across the street is Locanda Cicolina, a quiet, family-run restaurant that serves traditional Tuscan cuisine done to perfection - we ate on their patio overlooking the family's vineyards several times and were never disappointed.

As a base for exploring eastern and southern Tuscany and western Umbria, we could not recommend a better option than Villa La Caggiole. Montepulciano itself is less than 2 miles away, while Pienza, Montalcino, Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, Lake Trasimene, Perugia, Orvieto and much more are all within 60 minutes by car. We cannot wait to return and explore more!

A wonderful place for a family holiday!

  • 5 of 5

What a memorable holiday – and for all the right reasons. Our family of 10, aged 7 years old to 78 years old, have just returned from two wonderful weeks at Le Caggiole. The house is big and beautiful with plenty of space, both inside and out. This was important to us being such a large group and we were able to spend time together in the large reception room, around the pool or on the perfectly placed veranda where we dined at least once a day for breakfast, lunch or dinner, as well as having private space if we wanted a bolt-hole. Everything was very well presented, clean, loved and cared for by Francesca and Jim.

Each one of our group found something for them: the 7-year olds learned to dive in the scrupulously clean pool, picked plums, and chased (and caught) lizards; the older children swam, read, played badminton and walked among the olive trees as well as keeping in contact with their friends back home with the very reliable Wifi; the adults relaxed, swam, walked and generally enjoyed the warm sun and the opportunity to be together. Our daughter had a regular early morning run and enjoyed the peace and quiet at the start of the day.

The location is excellent, quite an easy drive from the airport at Rome and very close to the medieval town of Montepulciano with its range of restaurants and bars and also a lovely place to take ‘la passeggiata’ in the evening. We were there the week before the annual barrel rolling event so there were processions, street food, barrel rolling practice and other events taking place every night. We took the train to Siena and visited a few of the local towns but, in reality, it was difficult to tear ourselves away from Villa Le Caggiole.

Last but by no means least are the hosts, Francesca and Jim. Nothing is too much trouble for them and every question and request was answered promptly and in the most friendly way. It was our son’s birthday while we were there and we decided to have a meal cooked by one of Francesca’s lovely local ladies, with a little help from the children who enjoyed rolling i pici. Francesca spent time with me working out a menu that was both varied and which everyone enjoyed. Do try it you will love it.

Francesca, you are a wonderful host and thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Lovely, Enchanting Villa!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have just returned from our second stay at this lovely, enchanting villa. After our initial visit in 2015 we knew we had to come back and share this gem with our 3 adult children and soon to be daughter-in-law. Le Caggiole was just as we remembered and Francesca's warm welcome equally as inviting.

In Francesca we have found a life long friend and Le Caggiole has become my "happy place"! One could arrive at the villa and never leave to go sightseeing as the view from the terrace is spectacular. The villa itself is as lovely as the photos on the website, but I think the whole experience is what makes this place so special. It's Francesca and her husband Jim's attention to detail that stands out from the moment you arrive. The grounds, pool, and villa are lovingly cared for and spotless. The flowers and herb pots in full bloom. While the figs and plums were not in season yet, an added bonus this time were the ripe apricots which we devoured daily.

Francesca always respecting her guests privacy will offer her time and advice freely if asked. She is instrumental in helping to arrange meals that can be prepared onsite by 2 local and very talented ladies. Really... you must do this at least once! Thanks Beatrice & Fiorenza :)

The layout of the villa is excellent and allowed for all of us to have our own private living spaces, as well as the shared communal areas. The beds are comfortable, the water pressure in the showers excellent, the kitchen well appointed, and the decor tasteful. It's difficult to choose where to spend your your time because it's all so inviting. Trust me when I say Francesca has thought of everything:) Also, do purchase Francesca's wine and olive oil...it's all delicious!

Montepulciano is only 5 minutes away and the location is perfect to use as a home base for exploring neighbouring towns like Cortona, Montalcino, Pienza, Orvieto etc.

I could write forever about how perfect this villa is but I hope you will find out for yourselves. Let Le Caggiole become your "happy place!" It really is genuinely special and we will return again!!

PERFECTION IN EVERY WAY IMAGINABLE!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Villa Le Caggiole far exceeded our high expectations. No superlatives can do it justice! Everything was absolutely perfect -- from the warm and attentive hosting by Francesca throughout the week, to the beautiful, immaculate and comfortable accommodations, and to the spectacular views of the vineyard, olive orchard and expansive countryside below. Easy and convenient access into nearby Montepulciano and other ancient hilltop villages such as Pienza and Cortona. Highly recommended without hesitation to anyone seeking a private and relaxing retreat in the heart of Tuscany. We would give it six stars if we could!
