We were lucky enough to stay at Casa Pippo with our family and good friends (8 in total) - what an amazing experience! The villa is absolutely beautiful! Situated high on a hillside with acres and acres of land around, the view of nearby Arezzo and the rolling hills of Tuscany are undescribable whether lounging by the stunning pool or from any one of the windows. The villa is decorated in a rustic style, with authentic antiques, but still has every modern convenience you could need. The grounds are beautiful with flowers, gardens, olive trees and greenery. We felt like we were living in a dream there!
Francesco and Elisabetta, the hosts, are one of the warmest couples we've had a chance to meet! They welcomed us on our arrival with a fantastic and authentic Italian dinner and then repeated this on our second night when our friends arrived. They made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed for our stay. Francesco took the time to take the kids horseback riding on the property as well which was a wonderful treat for them. They make their own wine and olive oil which we had an opportunity to enjoy (a lot!)!
We were very busy trying to absorb Tuscany every day and it was perfect being able to come back to Casa Pippo each night! I wish we'd spent more time just at the Casa as one could easily spend days/weeks there without tiring of it!!
I have been recommending Casa Pippo to anyone who is even considering looking at staying in Italy and will continue to recommend it! I can only hope that we get a chance to go back one day too!!
