We recently spent a perfect week at Cretaiole. Every detail was handled with the utmost care and our time was stress free and delightful. After a very long drive from Nice in pouring rain, we arrived very late in the evening and were met by Luciano. He personally took us into town and showed us where they had made dinner reservations for us. His kindness and care set the tone for the entire week. The next morning, Isa arrived to introduce us to Cretaiole and the Val d' Orcia also to arrange any tours and activities we wanted. Everything worked perfectly and the activities truly made our stay seem like we were living as temporary locals. Luciano, Liliana, Isabella, and Carlo are the perfect hosts, and we are looking forward to our next trip to Italy. If it was possible to give 10 stars, I would!
