“Winter visit”
Reviewed January 30, 2014 via mobile

We have just had the privilidge of a four day fiesta of food, wine and culture at the casa bellavista close to Cortona in Tuscany with owners simonetta and guido conti.
The house is beautifully restored typical tuscan casa. Simonetta looks after the kitchen and is responsible for some of the most tasty delighful local dishes and her husband compliments that with a comprehensive selection of organic and local wines all elegantly presented and served. Backed up with extensive knowledge and delivered with such passion i must say.
We had an idyllic holiday and could not fault a single thing.
thankyou both so much for such an outstanding stay. Congratulations on your achievements there at the house and we wish you much sucess for the future.

We have just spent an amazing long weekend at Casa Bellavista in the heart of the lush and rolling Tuscan countryside. Its January but the weather was glorious with bright blue skies and sunshine enough to lunch on the terrace. Guido Conti ( ex Savoy hotel London ) and Simonetta, our most generous and welcoming hosts are clearly professionals and offer an outstanding service and open up their home to guests around the world. The rooms are traditional with gorgeous linen and ensuite bathrooms with room service daily.

We did everything : wine tastings, visits to mozzerella and salami makers, Asisi, Siena, Cartona but you can just relax infront of the fire if you want or in the summer there is the pool. Its a B&B but with 5 stars ! It's two hours from Stansted by Ryanair and only costs us £50 return. Hurry...get your reservation in before it gets fully booked !

After 6 weeks of being away from NZ on holiday, at short notice we phoned and were able to book in at Casa Bellavista (after finding it on Trip Advisor). Simonetta was very helpful and provided us with information on booking a rental car (from Panichi Autos - also excellent to deal with, just phoned when we arrived and they came out on a Sunday, make sure you ask for a GPS). Our first sight of CB was breathtaking and with a sense of belonging, which was conveyed by Simonetta and Guido. Their hospitality was second to none and the food and wine was spectacular along with the picturesque setting. We enjoyed the family atmosphere along with dogs Dante and Trilly. Simonetta made sure we had plans for our daily adventures, giving us suggestions and information of places to see. This was a highlight of our holiday, a real taste of life 'Under the Tuscan Sun' and given the chance we will return. Thank you Simonetta and Guido for a wonderful time, you really made our time in Tuscany special with memories for a lifetime. We hope to see you in NZ in the future - La mia casa la casa.

Although it has been awhile since we stayed at Casa Bellavista, we often talk about returning. It was the highlight of our trip! Simonetta and Guido are gems. Their home is beautiful and comfortable. Both Simonetta and Guido made us feel welcome and special. We were a group of six traveling together which can be challenging and they took us all in stride. Their knowledge of the area and its history was engaging and interesting. Both Simonetta and Guido demonstrated an innate ability to know when to stay, talk and share information and when to leave us on our own. The food and wine were exquisite and the hospitality warm and genuine. The cooking class with Simonetta was fun and informative. We learned a lot. We would highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone wanting a picturesque, pastoral setting to relax, rejuvenate and renew.

We enjoyed two nights at this wonderful Tuscan B&B. Simonetta and Guido welcomed us to their beautiful home and made us feel comfortable and at home. They were very hospitable and knowledgeable hosts. Casa Bellevista is peaceful in the countryside and yet close to many places we wanted to visit. We had a lovely room. The dinner and the breakfasts we had there were outstanding. Our only regret is that we didn't schedule a cooking class with Simonetta - next time.

We stayed here in July and absolutely fell in love with Tuscany. Simonetta and Guido were great and very helpful. We ate dinner our first night at their B and B and it was so romantic...not to mention the best food of the entire trip. Loved the family and pet atmosphere. We really felt like we were living in Tuscany and not tourist. Simonetta is a great cook and Guido was very sweet and hospitable. I would stay here again!!!!

After last year's visit to Casa Bellavista, we could not wait to come back and enjoy the incredible, warm, friendly and professional hospitality of owner's Simonetta & Guido. The peace, quite and amazing home-made Tuscan food (alongside great Tuscan wine) made us feel like we had our own home in the Tuscan countryside.

It is very rare that you can combine high quality service with such a personal setting. That is what makes Casa Bellvista so special, you can feel like you are at your own home but yet enjoy all the luxurious services at a very affordable cost.

As frequent travellers, we are exposed to the good and the bad, Casa Bellavista is an absolute must, 10 out of 10!

Arrivaderci!
