HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Cretaiole was wonderful. Isabella, Carlo, Luciano and Carlotta made our stay just perfect - they went above and beyond in all respects, and had already thought of everything before we even wanted or needed it! A very relaxing week, but also with plenty of interesting things to see, do and taste. We can't wait to come back!

Cretaiole is the only way to experience Tuscany. It is such an authentic experience and the Moricciani family truly makes you feel like a part of their family. Staying at the farmhouse is an experience in itself- from making breakfast inside your Tuscan apartment with fresh vegetables picked from the garden, to evenings with Luciano, the heart and soul of...

Just an incredible experience. The entire family is your host and Carlotta helps you in every conceivable way. Everything they organize is perfect. You can partake of as much or as little as you want. Don't let the lack of air conditioning bother you; thick walls and ceiling fans make it just fine. The various activities will be memories we...

Cretaiole is a magical place. We arrived to the most beautiful, idyllic setting I have ever seen. There we met Carlotta who is very warm, friendly and incredibly knowledgeable. We were to meet Carlo, and Luciano later that evening and Isabella arrived from a trip of her own on Thursday. They are all very welcoming and kind people and I... More

You can’t ask for a better Tuscany experience! The farmhouse at Cretaiole is amazing – beautiful in every detail and an amazing view. The land around Cretaiole is so beautiful you want to cry! We stayed in a three-bedroom apartment on the top floor and it was a lovely space for the five of us. Additionally, staying in this place... More

This was my third stay at Cretaiole, and the second in La Casa del Contadino. Although some improvements have been made since my first visit several years ago, the sense of peace and tranquility remains. My friends and I, all artists, enjoyed the 360˚ visual smorgasbord every hour of every day. Quiet, but not without the lovely sounds of birds... More

A beautiful apartment that dates back a few hundred years - equipped with all the modern amenities, but overlooking landscapes unchanged for centuries. A fully equipped kitchen, a lovely sitting room, and bountiful welcome basket. Cretaiole is well situated in the Val d'Orca - easy to get to Sienna, Cortona, and surrounding areas - but you'll find that you really... More

I had decided to stay at Cretaiole based on the rave reviews and it definitely lived up to its reputation. Beautiful setting overlooking gorgeous rolling Tuscan hills. The Dolce Vita package is a must. My husband dropped me off and took the rental car to the airport for a last minute flight to NY, so I was without a car... More

We stayed with friends in adjoining apartments and utilised a shared kitchen with them. Upon our arrival we were stunned by the amount of food on the kitchen table - part of the Dulce Vita package. Sausages, cheeses, bread, jam, honey, fruit, eggs, wine, milk and more. Beautifully set out bedrooms with their own ensuites. Carlo, Isabella and Luciano welcome... More

For one fantastic week we stayed at Cretaiole and it was our favorite stay in Italy. Tuscany is all about the food, drink, gorgeous country views, picturesque hillside villages and the great people. We were especially fond of Carlotta who was our main contact leading tours and handling reservations - she worked tirelessly and was a great person. We also... More
