“Peaceful vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

For our purpose the place was exactly what we wanted. It was in the center of the town so that we could walk around in the neighbourhood without a car, Bus and train stations were also close by so it was easy to visit Cortona and Arezzo.

The residence was stylish and spacious so also our 4-year old child had room to play. The kitchenette served its purpose well enabling us to make breakfast and lunch..

Host and hostess of the residence were very friendly and helpful.

We have been to Italy three times and this visit was by far the best vacation we have had, in no small part to the wonderful Residence Le Santucce. Our apartment was splendid and having a full apartment, with a kitchen, allowed us to fully experience the Tuscan lifestyle (cooking with the freshest, ripest produce purchased everyday at the local market), at less cost than a hotel room. Castiglion Fiorentino is a lovely town perfectly located for day trips to almost anywhere in Tuscany and many places in Umbria. It is a fairly small town, so mainly quiet during the week, which we loved when we came home from a day of sight seeing. The weekends were lively with Sagras (local festival) that provided lots of local cuisine, wine and live music. While small, there is a very convenient train station in town, so can be enjoyed by those who do not want to drive in Italy. Oh, and the parking is off-street, which anyone who has traveled to the hill towns of Tuscany will know is a definite benefit.

My wife, Virginia, and my daughter Abigail and I had the best time in La Santucce.
We were taken great care from the beginning of the process until we departed. We got assigned to a 2 bedroom apartment(unit #15), which was AMAZING!!!
The apartment was well designed, very clean with an amazing view, and very spacious for our little 3 years old Abigail.
The unit is located 1 minute walking distance from the town center. Everything we needed was walking distance (restaurants, bars, market, snacks and even a small park)
Luisella and her husband Luka were amazing, very helpful and spoke very good english. We were offered to get picked up from the train station (and we would have if we didn't take the wrong train...lol). We were dropped at the train station, when we left, with helpful instructions of how to get to our next destination.

I can go on and on about how great was it, but to make it short, La Santucce is the place to go... no questions ask....and the price was also very very affordable and compatible.

We asked to Luisella to take care of our friends who come to Castiglion Fiorentino for the most important day of our life: our weddings. And we spent our "first night" in one of the apartments... simply FANTASTIC. The residence is an old convent restructed in a fantastic manner and it is very evocative of past ages. Rooms are very comfortable and originally disegned. The residence exposes on the woderful landscape of Val di Chiana. The owner is kind and warm and cookes fantastic cakes for the breakfast and is always available to assist you.

We stayed the entire month of June at Le Santucce. Even though it was cold and wet the first two weeks, and the owners (Alfeo and Miranda) kept apologizing for the weather, we were warm and comfortable in our beautiful apartment. Using the hill-top town of Castiglion Fiorentino as our "home-base" to explore all of Tuscany and Umbria is the very best way to see the regions. Luca, with his command of the English language, made sure that all our needs were met; and Alfeo was ever-present with his suggestions of yet more opportunities to explore. And the Friday market day was a real surprise! Wonderful restaurants, including three great pizza joints to choose from, and great village ambiance made our stay even more enjoyable.

Train station very accessible for daytrips to Rome, Florence or Venice.

Residence Le Santucce is a secret - please don't tell just anyone, but do tell those who wish to experience the true joy of exploring Italy about this jewel.

I think the title says it all. This place was like a piece of heaven on earth. So extremely beautiful!!!

The room was really a huge spacious apartment which could have easily fit 10 people. And it was just so breathtakingly beautiful and gorgeously decorated. I didn't even want to leave the room

Location was perfect. Just a 15min walk to the train station and close to some lovely restaurants.

But the best thing about this place was the staff. First off was Luca who promptly responded to all my emails. And then we met his father in law Alfeo and we all fell in love with him. Such a kind hearted charming man who sent us to and from the train station and refused to take any money for his troubles. And generously offered to send us to the train station whenever we wanted to go out although we preferred to walk.

I will definitely come back here and stay for at least a few weeks next time

Thank you for such a lovely stay!!!

We travelled to Castiglion Fiorentino to visit our daughter for her study abroad program. We found Residence Le Santucce to be a perfect place to stay. The room was spacious, views were amazing and service excellent. We would highly recommend it and when we return to Tuscany would choose to stay here and travel to the surrounding cities.
