We stayed in the bottom floor, two bedroom part of the house the week of 10/27 to 11/3. We selected in this home based on the tripadvisor reviews, the casamoricciani website and the positive impression we experienced in our initial contacts with Isabela.
Based on the tripadvisor reviews and the cost of the accomodation it would be entirely reasonable to have very high expectations. I hoped for the best and found it even better. The home was every bit as lovely as the pictures but I found Isabela and Carlo really go above and beyond in making your stay memorable and authentic. We loved making pasta and having dinner with them and their other guests. We visited the Etruscan tomb on their property and learned so much about the area from isabela on this tour. We followed the tours all week in her guide book which was incredible. I loved shopping at the coop and making dinner in the beautiful kitchen, enjoying Vincenzo and contucci they provided (sp?) every evening, the view...
I could go on and on but the other reviews say it even better. One of the comments said it is the
vacation you dream of but rarely realize. Thanks to both for our wonderful memories on this trip.
- 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
