Appartamenti Il Castagno
Reviewed February 7, 2013

I spent a week there in January 2013 and was very happy with our option: the apartment is located on a hill, above the clouds, very confortable, warm, in a peaceful neighbourhood, with everything one needs to feel at home. It was wonderful to wake up looking at the valley below from our balcony. Our hosts are the most adorable people one can ever meet and I hope to have the opportunity to spend some days there again. Meanwhile, I more than recomend the place, since it is close drive from most interesting places in Tuscany. Not to mention the Becattini restaurant and its wonderful homemade pastas and soups.

We are family with two kids and have stayed in Cipresso apartment located on the second floor with huge terrace with wonderful view on the valley and Florence. The apartment is clean and well equipped (the only missing was washing machine). We had everything to fill like at home and not in a hotel. The location is great if you want to be away from the noisy streets and the rush in the city and to explore Tuscany. You can reach Florence by car in about 30 min, Siena is about 1h 20min on the road to there you can visit San Gimignano and Monteriggioni and on another day go to Pisa, which is about 1h and 30min away. You have 10-12 min drive to a big supermarket COOP on your way to Florence, where you can buy whatever you need for your stay or you can eat at Becattini family restaurant on the ground floor. Lorenzo and the family were very helpful and warm. If you decided to explore Tuscany by car this is ideal place for you to stay regardless of the season.

The apartment is clean, efficient and wonderfully quiet. Compared to the crush of people throughout Tuscany, the Becattini family has provided a lovely retreat out of the way yet close enough to visit all of the sites on your list. Great value, hospitable hosts, and outstanding views make these apartments 5 stars.

We just returned from staying here in apartment Il Cipresso. I agree with all of the other wonderful reviews about how welcoming and loving the Becattini family are. The apartment is basic but very functional and large with two bedrooms and all the facilities for cooking and the best view of Florence. The restaurant is lovely and so close to home. You will need a car for access to groceries and train to florence, etc. I can't really say anything more than to highly recommend it. Lorenzo was so very helpful about general travel in the area. They are a lovely family.

Room Tip: go for the cipresso with view of florence

We were travelling with our son in Italy for three weeks and this was by far our favourite spot. Lorenzo and his family went out of their way to make our stay memorable. The town of Poggio alla Croce is very small and quiet and the views are fantastic. Amenities such as groceries, train station and restaurants are 7 Kim's away and the Coop grocery store is amazing for such a small area. We ate at Lorenzo's family's restaurant twice in our five day stay and these turned out to be our best eating experiences while we were in Italy. The cooking class with Danillo is also a must as he makes it so much fun. The apartment we stayed in was very clean and comfortable and was equipped with everything we needed. We definitely hope to return some day to this beautiful region.

We truly enjoyed our stay at the Apartmenti Il Castagno--Lorenzo and his family made us feel so welcome. Lorenzo explained the surrounding areas and sites for us to see and gave us a highlighted map. He made our trip so easy. We were a party of 4 and really enjoyed the spacious apartment, comfortable beds, fully outfitted kitchen (although we only made breakfast-the restaurant food was incredible) Having a washing machine was fantastic and well appreciated as we had been traveling a while and desperately needed it! We were very impressed at how clean the apartment was. The views out the windows were gorgeous. We had a car which was very necessary as we wanted to see the castles, wine tasting, San Germignano, Greve, etc. We had a parking space a few steps away. There is a beautiful lounge area overlooking the hills where we enjoyed a Happy Hour before enjoying a delicious dinner created by Danilo. He also offers cooking classes to those staying in the apartment. I wish I'd had time to take the class, as the best food in our 29 days of eating in Italy was from Danilo's kitchen! The hike up to Poggio a la Croce was great and the views fantastic.

Room Tip: Best room for views and quiet is the room with the twin beds.

Lorenzo and his family were very helpful and welcoming. We were a party of 4 adults and loved the apartment and the views. The place is as advertised, large and comfortable and a nice place to stay. Clothes washer a BIG plus! I recommend hiking up Poggio alla Croce for the views and eating I'm Lorenzo's family's restaurant for the food and the views.
