    Additional amenities & feature info
    Casa Giardino combines a real sense of history alongside modern living.

    You enter the property via a flight of steps onto the terrace which has far ranging views across the valley. The dining/reception room has a log burner in the magnificent Tuscan style fireplace and there are always plenty of logs available and the whole property has central heating for the colder months.

    The kitchen is well fitted with ample utensils cutlery and crockery etc. There is a four ring gas hob and main oven with integral grill. Despite the opportunity to sample great Tuscan food in local restaurants, it may be as much a part of your holiday to buy local fresh food and to create your own meals, eating al fresco on the terrace which also looks down onto the splendid gardens.

The service and information provided by the owners at the time of booking was exceptionally good and very informative. Replies to my subsequent emails about the property were answered very promptly.

We stayed at the property for eleven days in mid/late September. The weather was hot with temperatures for much of the time at around 30 degrees. We had a couple of days with thunder-storms and heavy showers but were still able to get out and explore.

The house is on the edge of a small hamlet and in a truly peaceful location with excellent views. The balcony offered an ideal location for meals and for evening glasses of wine. We also enjoyed the garden, especially the sun warmed figs which were plentiful, and used the pool almost every day.

Despite the high temperatures, the style of house with its small windows and wooden shutters allowed us to keep the house cool during the hot days. The accommodation offered everything we needed for our stay including...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We enjoyed a wonderful welcome by the owners at this fabulous house in a beautiful setting. We had everything we needed and more- a real home from home! The pool and garden were great. We were able to combine relaxing peaceful days in the sun with fascinating visits to beautiful Italian villages and Florence, Arrezo and Siena (all easy to get to). The information left by the owners was invaluable- we followed their restaurant recommendations and had some really lovely meals out. more
