Our group of six adults spent a week at Casale di Villore in September 2012. Overall, our experience exceeded all our expectations - and by a large margin. The property is simply beautiful and commands an incredible view of the Tuscan countryside. It is ideally located between midway between Florence and Siena and is an easy drive to many Tuscan towns. But the property is so pleasant that you hardly need to leave.
Our accommodations were outstanding - exceptionally clean, well furnished, and well stocked with cooking supplies. We rented the largest apartment because of the size of our group and it more than met our needs. In addition, it was a very good value.
Our host, Antonio, made our visit exceptional. He was friendly and accessible and provided excellent restaurant and sightseeing recommendations, driving directions, and information about Tuscany.
Our stay here was outstanding and we really hated to leave. I look forward to returning and would highly recommend Casale di Villore.
