Borgo dei Cadolingi
Reviewed August 26, 2011

We had a perfect week this August exploring Tuscany and staying in the Loggia apartments at Borgo dei Cadolingi. It is amazing how hosts managed to create such a cosy and welcoming atmosphere in the house with a touch of history: 18th century building combines modern comfort and historic appeal. The host family (Franco&Patrizia, their daughter Nicolletta) seem to be really enjoying themselves while providing their guests with all the best and making them feel very special.
The house is situated in a wonderful spot of Tuscany in an authentic village where the majority of people live their ordinary lives – it was a real fun to be observers and sometimes participants of it. At the same time the apartments are located in a perfect place for one day trips. We managed to visit not only Pisa, Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra but also more distant places such as Pitigliano with Therms of Saturnia, as well as Cinque Terre.
We really envy all the current and future guests of Borgo dei Cadolingi!!!! We hope to be back one day!!!

We had a wonderful week in Tuscany, thanks to the charming, well situated appartment we had in Catignano. We received a very nice welcome from our host Patricia, Franco and their daughter Nicoletta. We were feeling at home in this big and clean appartment. We had everything we could hope for. Dinnerware was like brand new, decoration had a warm touch and everything was newly renovated. We even got invited to a local fiesta organized by the residents of the village. It was great. This is by far the best place we ever rent. The place is situated in a nice small and calm village in the middle of Tuscany near many vineyard with great places to buy wines (ask Franco for the best deals). You can easily get to Pisa, Florence, Sienna, Volterra and many other nice cities to visit within an hour drive.

We stayed in the loggia apartment which is very spacious, We would highly recommend this apartment and the others. The hosts are lovely and went out of their way to make sure we were welcome and had what we needed. When we arrived late with our very tired 18 month old, they went out and got us milk and snacks for her. The bottle of wine left for us to try by the owners was lovely and when I said so I was lucky enough to get another and to visit the owners amazing wine cellar. The apartment complex used to be a convent and has been rennovated in a lovely old tuscan style. They are building a pool which will make it an even better spot in the summer. The location is great for day trips around the region. We wish we could have enjoyed the lovely big fire but we had beautiful weather. There is a village 4k nearby with a small supermarket, cafe, pharmacy, playground etc..and lots of other restaurants also in close driving distance. We will definitely come back some day

We stayed one week at Borgo dei Cadolingi in October. The apartment was exceptional: CLEAN, good bed, nicely appointed and everything worked. We liked it so much that we came back for another week in November! After a long day of museums and libraries, we came back to a very comfortable apartment. Driving in the countryside is very close to heaven. The owners are very kind, helpful and interesting people. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Borgo dei Cadolingi is an exquisite apartment experience. My husband and I have stayed there twice ( 2007, 2010) and we have had friends also stay there who have been thrilled with our recommendation. The apartments are very clean, spacious, steeped in history, yet modern at the same time. It is a cheerful and peaceful location in a hamlet with easy access to nearby towns and essential services. The postcard vistas from the apartments are breathtaking- rolling hills, vineyards, and open skies. Situated between Siena and Firenze it is a perfect base for exploring Toscana. The owners are warm and welcoming and do everthing possible to make your stay memorable. It is s special place!

It was our second stay in their Terrace apartment, fantastic. All apartments are very well equipped against an excellent price-quality ratio. And not to forget the friendliness and hospitality of the Calonici family: Franco, Patricia and daughter Nicoletta.

Borgo dei Cadolingi was recommended to us by a good friend, and after staying there by myself, we have recommended it to several friends and colleagues from work, and they also came back fully satisfied.

Borgo dei Cadolingi is simply a magic place: cosy, well-fitted apartments in an overwhelming landscape, the ideal place to recharge one’s batteries and to be used as a base for exploring the historic places of Tuscany. We are sue we will go back to Borgo dei Cadolingi and have again a wonderful time!
