“A little paradise in Tuscany”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2011

We were very lucky to find Casina Valloreci at the last moment, through friends. The proprietors, Angelo and Umberto, have created a little paradise out of an old farm. Set amidst olive groves, the premises’ garden is full of flowers, fruit trees and cypresses, with stunning views over rolling hills and century-old hilltop villages. During the pitch dark starry nights, there is nothing but the sound of crickets. It all gives it an unmistakable Mediterranean feel.

As to the facilities: There is one apartment and one little bungalow, which we stayed in. It is comfortable, clean and has a small, but well equipped kitchen. Upon our arrival there were coffee, tea, milk and breakfast cereals enough for the whole of our stay.
The large garden has several shaded terraces and one bigger gazebo with outdoor kitchen. Enough spots to have your breakfast, dinner, or just sit, relax and sip lovely Tuscan wines…. The 14-meters-or-so swimming pool is big enough to do your laps each morning or simply cool off. As there are only two apartments for two persons each, we virtually had the pool to ourselves.

Our hosts, Angelo and Umberto, certainly know what hospitality is and did everything to make us feel at home. They provided information on the area, restaurants and maps and treated us on an occasional glass of wine. Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and numerous charming little villages are close. If you are looking for an absolutely quiet, peaceful place in fantastic surroundings, while at the same time having enough interesting Tuscan sights within reach, this is an ideal place to stay. It was our intention to stay for a few nights, but after the first night we decided to prolong our stay as long as we could. Casina Valloreci is a beautiful place, with wonderful hosts, and we definitely will return.

If you read our friend’s review of Casina Valloreci, I’m the one who burst into tears. It is almost impossible to put into words how idyllic Casina Valloreci is – everything about our stay there exceeded my wildest dreams – and I had dreamed of going to Tuscany for a long time! Every direction you look is a picture-perfect view of the Tuscan countryside. And Casina Valloreci itself is quite simply paradise on earth – everything and more you could possibly imagine for a stay in Tuscany. Angelo and Elena are the most gracious and thoughtful hosts, and made us feel so welcome and at home. The two apartments are very lovely and extremely comfortable. The surrounding grounds are unbelievably beautiful – with so many inviting areas to relax or swim or enjoy a meal or a glass of wine.

There are several Tuscan towns such as Siena, Montepulciano, and Cortona that are easy day trips. Plus there are several very close-by small hilltop towns that are less touristy and full of charm and delicious places to eat.

When it came time for us leave Casina Valloreci and move on to the next leg of our trip, I must admit I cried again – because I didn’t want to leave. For my husband and I it is not a matter of if we make it back to Casina Valloreci, we will be back – because I left a piece of my heart there.

My wife and I spent a week at Casina Valloreci with one of our closest friends. We had hustled and bustled through Rome and Florence and soon were headed to Cinque Terre and Milan. The week in at Casina Valloreci was definitely the highlight of the places we stayed and offered a very necessary respite from the rest of our tour.

Angelo was the perfect host. He greeted us when we first arrived as though we were friends he had not seen in a long time. The accommodations, the grounds and the views from the hillside pool area and gazebo were breath taking. It was clear that Angelo and his sister Elena had taken much care, thought, time and expense to create such a beautiful and inviting atmosphere. The wife of the couple we were traveling with burst out in tears after Angelo's tour of the Casina. They had been dreaming about this vacation for a long, long time. She said it surpassed any expectation or dream she had, to which Angelo replied "you must embrace me," as he gave her a hug.

Our mornings (albeit late mornings) were spent touring some of the small Tuscan towns nearby, afternoons at the pool cooling off (June is rather warm) and evenings eating at one of the nearby (but not too close) restaurants or preparing our own Italian feast in the outdoor kitchen.

If we ever make it back to Italy, our first, and maybe only reservation, will be at Casina Valloreci. And this time we will be going back to see a dear friend.

Room Tip: There are only 2 rooms, either one is perfect. The one in the house is larger, the other is separat...

Linda and I spent one week of our four week vacation in Italy at Casina Valloreci and it was the highlight of our trip! Angelo opened his property to us as if we were long lost friends and directed us to the finest sights, restaurants, and local wineries--even lending us gallon jugs so we could fill them at the local winery and enjoy wines like a true Italian.

This centrally located retreat allowed us access to some of the finest locations for classic Tuscany pictures that wow our friends. After a hard day of picture taking and hill-top town visits, it was wonderful to feel real grass under our feet, enjoy the pool, and then be able to cook our own meal in the outdoor kitchen. The indoor kitchen was great for cooking our breakfast.

We both give Casina Valloreci our highest rating!

My husband and I stayed at Casina Valloreci for five nights, following a group tour to Florence, the Cinque Terre, Lucca, Volterra and Rome. The tour was great, and we needed a restful home base to continue our exploration of Tuscan hill towns. From the first email contact with the owner, Angelo, we knew it was the place for us. The website is alluring, but doesn't fully capture the beauty of the setting. We stayed in the small stone house which is both comfortable and beautifully decorated. The small kitchen allowed us to prepare our own version of Italian food using local ingredients. The gardens and pool are pristine, the view amazing. We felt so welcome---Angelo is a friendly host who seemed to know exactly what we needed. He looked after our every need, and gave helpful advice about places to see and restaurants to try. We were the only guests at the time, which made our stay all the more restful and memorable. The Casina is very secluded and quiet, but within easy driving distance to many Tuscan towns (Pienza, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Siena and Cortona). We would stay there again in a heartbeat (for longer next time!) and would recommend it highly. It was a dream come true.

My wife and I have travelled in Italy many times, our accomodation has never impressed me so much as to go to the internet and write a review. Casina Valloreci and the hosts there are something else. In our week there we had the most tranquil days and afternoons at home ,drinking local wines and relaxing in the gardens.. if we went out touring the area, the host Angelo had advice, maps and would assist us in any way.
The position of the agritourismo in the heart of southern Tuscany was right in the middle of all the little villages we dreamed of visiting. In the countryside between two tiny unspoilt villages of Petroio and Castelmuzio and just minutes from Pienza, Bagno Vignoni and Montepulciano to name a few.

We spent a wonderful week in this lovely place. The house was beautifully restored and furnished, set in a peaceful valley, all quite unspoilt. There are fabulous views of the hill towns and the Abbey of Saint Anna. It is a short drive to Pienza, Montepulciano and the Val d'Orcia. Angelo and his family could not have been more hospitable and helpful. We received the warmest of welcomes and all the thoughtful personal touches made our stay so pleasurable. We would recommend this comfortable tranquil house to anyone. It is not of course an hotel

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The first time I fell in love with this place was several years ago while watching the movie, "The English Patient." I loved these forests, cypress trees and valleys. I was impressed in particular by the Abbey where the movie was filmed, at Sant'Anna in Camprena. And now this movie is repeated for me every night, and every night is always more beautiful. I would like to share these feelings with you. ... more   less
