This was not our first trip to Italy, but by far, this was the the most memorable week. Isa and Carlo are indefatigable hosts whose purpose is to make each guest's experience the best possible. Their wealth of knowledge and attention to detail make daily adventures into the countryside sheer joy!
From Isa's BIG BLACK BOOK of suggestions and impeccable directions to the warm hospitality experienced in their home and at the farm, we felt pampered and appreciated. Let me not forget to mention the surprise visits by Carlo delivering mouth watering pastries for breakfast or the marvelous afternoon spent visiting local artisans...one of Isa's suggestions. We so adored the beautiful iron door matts at Casa Moricciani, and were able to send some home after meeting Giovanni at his blacksmith's bodega. Now we think fondly of our week in Castlemuzio, as we come and go from our home.
I lack sufficient superlative phrases to describe our experience...WOW, amazing, and exceeding all expectations are a good start..... Do we want to return? Absolutely!!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Casa Moricciani is the perfect place to stay for independent travelers desiring to experience authentic Tuscany in refined luxury and style. The villa is truly a home — designed, furnished, and equipped with every comfort — and beckons you to come and live "the Tuscan life" in the picturesque village of Castelmuzio — a medieval town, just south of Siena, surrounded by the greatest Tuscan wines, foods, and sceneries, and yet itself undiscovered and waiting for you to enjoy its hidden pleasures. ... more less
