At least we didn't....definitely one of the most delightful and charming places we have ever stayed! So many thoughtful touches and such extraordinary hospitality that you feel like you are in some kind of dream. And the view from the yard where you are perched high on the edge of the storybook village of Castelmuzio, takes your breath away every time you look at it. Isabella and Carlo have obviously put their heart and soul into this amazing villa and you can feel their love in every inch of the place. Moreover, the "Hidden Tuscany" book they have compiled is more comprehensive than almost any guidebook I have ever read. (Watch out, Rick Steves and Lonely Planet!) It's such a useful reference and inspirational guide for your adventures through the countryside of beautiful Tuscany.
We were somewhat skeptical when we read the various rave reviews of their place before we arrived because many times places like this are "oversold" and then unfortunately, never quite meet your high expectations. However, Casa Moricciani is truly everything all the other guests rave about and then some. You won't want to leave....
- 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
