My wife and I spent a wonderful November week at Cretaiole, thanks to the peerless hospitality of the famiglia Moricciani and Carlotta. A stay at Cretaiole is a window on 2,000 years of history in Tuscany’s Val D’Orcia, a sense of place like no other, and a lesson in the art of living imaginatively and well. From the farmhouse and...

Visiting Cretaiole in late November to enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday away from home was such a nice as well as interesting experience. What makes it great is the family and friends who so lovingly take care of their wonderful renovated farm house and their guests. Isabella, Carlotta, Carlo, and Luciano are there to meet your every need without being intrusive.... More

I'm not sure what more I can add to the other excellent reviews, other than to say "Ditto, ditto, and ditto". The Moricciani family has made the Tuscan experience so memorable for so many people. They are consummate hosts and genuine folk. Their strong bonds in the Tuscan community affords incredible experiences for their guests with small vintners, local artists,... More

Each stay with the Moricciani family just gets better and better. We ask ourselves why we would revisit a specific property when there are so many places on our bucket list. The answer is very simple - The Moricciani Family, Carlotta included, are the most wonderful, charming, delightful hosts we have ever experienced! We are already planning our fourth visit... More

This trip (April 2015) was our second time staying in L'Oliveira at Cretaiole after a strong feeling for two years that we wanted to return. We (myself, my husband and our 8 year son) were welcomed by the Moricciani family like long-lost relatives and settled in immediately. The warm fireplace and generous table set with local foods from the family... More

We discovered Cretaiole from fellow traveler we met briefly in Florence. It was off-season so we stayed less than the normal one week--but what a place it would be to stay a full week. The owners, staff, and their extended families (including the animals) were wonderful. Highly recommended. A stunning spot in the Tuscan countryside with people who truly know... More

I, selfishly, hesitate to recommend this place because I don't want it to become so popular that I have difficulty getting a reservation in the future! It was that great! The Moricciani family and Carlotta make you feel so at home and welcome. We hadn't planned anything for the week we were there, October 24-31, 2015 and a good thing... More

We are just settling back in to home after our beautiful Italy trip. We spent a week from Sept 26 -Oct 3 with the Moricciani family and our time at Cretaiole was so enchanting thanks to all the hard work by Isabella, Carlo, Luciano and Carlotta, not to mention the kind and meticulous housekeepers. What a wonderful family and team... More

I read many of the reviews of Cretaiole prior to booking about 10 months in advance of our trip, before any other part of our trip had been planned. It sounded like something I wanted to do. My husband was leery. Worried about the accommodations, what the owners would be like, what the other guests would be like. Shortly before... More

What a wonderful surprise. Cretaiole is a gem of an agriturismo that offers all you could want to experience the Tuscan way of life. Isabella is the perfect host and welcomes you with her insight of the local area as well as providing you with the opportunity to participate in various functions and tours to learn about Val d'Orca.
