“Superb setting, peaceful, great facilities”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2010

We stayed here 1st week of August 2010, grounds are stunning, peaceful location and all facilities you would need. Remember Gas has to be turned on by a handle nr the sink ( we didn't know this until check out day !! ) Owner very helpful. Restaurants not great in the town & take your Italian phrase book, you will need it, but its part of the adventure. Scenery stunning, Cortona, Siena, Florence & Pisa all accessible & go to Lake Trasimeno, the village itself is just gorgeous.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2007

We have stayed at l'Ippocastano 4 times and have booked again for Sept. 2007. The owners are wonderful people and very helpful. The apartments are comfortable and clean. The grounds are quite lovely, and you feel like you are in the countryside, but in reality, the town is just up the road. There are restaurants, shops, grocery stores all within walking distance, and the Thursday morning market is spectacular! The train station to Rome and Florence is just 2 blocks walk. We love this place!

Stayed September 2006

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2007

L'Ippocastona is wonderful - we have stayed twice & will do so again.
The location is fantastic with easy access to Perugia, Assisi, Cortona, Arezzo & the hill towns of Tuscany. Not to mention the outlet shopping at Val de Chiana within 10 kms. The property has everything you could possibly need. We stayed both times in the apartment Archi - two bathrooms, two double bedrooms. Friends stayed in apartment Camucia & that too was well equipped & very comfortable.
Within easy reach of the supermarket, restaurants. Great place to stay. Thank you Maria Grazia & family.
