“Our Tuscan home from home and and adopted members of the Casini family!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Where do I start? This has become our own bit of paradise in Europe....our other piece is in Tobago, but I digress. Dario and his family only increased the charm of this cosy apartment which is part of the family farmhouse (a reconstructed Tuscan farmhouse built by Dario himself using reclaimed Tuscan stone).

The apartment is fully kitted with all you would need to self cater and the temperature is perfectly regulated due to the thick, stone walls. Enjoy a glass of Dario's wine on the patio whilst enjoying the stunning views of the nearby hill town of Lucignano or wander down to the beautiful vineyard of an evening.

The best part of the stay for us however was the owner himself and his family....Dario was so kind and generous showing us the surrounding areas, plying us with his wonderful organic Chianti, grappa and lemonchello and including us in meals. The whole experience was amazing including adventures to nearby festivals in Montepulciano, wine deals at private vineyards and amazing gelatos....not to mention the main attraction in Dario's office....we won't ruin the surprise for you on that!

I can't recommend this apartment/experience enough, in fact I actually want to keep it secret so we can keep it as our private getaway! :) We loved everyday rain or shine and a little bit of our heart was left there...this just gives us an excuse to return and retrieve it soon!

If you want to enjoy the best organic wine in the world, amazingly fresh food, beautiful countryside and cracking company with a man known by all in the area and keen to impart his knowledge of all things Tuscany, then this is the place for you! It's also damn good value for money!

Dario, I hope this review has done you justice, we both miss you and will see you as soon as we can! We need to come back for another Dario a special pizza!

“Absolutely marvelous and perfect for us!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We could not have imagined a better arrangement and more welcoming and helpful host. Dario Casini provided all that was described and more. He is a gracious and considerate host who is willing to provide information about the area while not being intrusive in any respect. We are looking forward to our next visit with Dario!
