5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

The owners of Casa a Corte were incredibly helpful - nothing was too much trouble. They gave us the most detailed directions to the property, which meant we arrived stress free & helped enormously with suggestions for days out. The house itself was brilliantly equipped, which always makes things so much easier! There was nothing we wanted that we didn't... more

Management response:

The village road (750m) has never been a problem for guests during the 13 years we have owned the property but unfortunately heavy rainfall had removed road chippings from the track. The council had set aside replacement stones but the repair was delayed due to further heavy... more

We loved our stay at Casa a Corte. Located in the heart of such a beautiful Tuscan valley, it really captures the essence of the 'good life'. Surrounded by working olive groves and vineyards, you can witness the Italians going about their daily lives as they tend to their crops. A local shop in Ponte Moriano sells the local olive... more

Management response:

As owners of the house it gives us so much pleasure to read positive reviews on A Corte & hear guests thoughts and new discoveries. Because the area is so beautiful & the locals work so hard to maintain the land, we love it when guests venture into the countryside and see the wonderful flowers, rare birds and animals.
