“Wonderful staff and a beautiful place to sleep in Toscana”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

We were looking for a place to spend the night in south Toscana and this place was great - the owner asked for a very low price, and the appartment was well equipped, and very clean.
He helped us a lot when we needed a computer.
The farm is at a lovely spot with great view all around and few minutes driving from Sienna.
We were sorry that we could stay there only one night, it looks like a wonderful place to spend several days and nights in.

When we booked Casa Vacanze, it was some foreboding, since to date, our accommodation has been in hotels and we had no experience of self-catering apartments, but we have been so pleasantly surprised.
We booked online (be prepared - our card was debited immediately for the full cost of a week’s stay) choosing a room with a balcony view, and it has been a truly delightful stay. But over and above the quality of the accommodation, our host Manola, was wonderful. Her English, though not polished, was easily good enough to hold a conversation, and nothing was too much trouble for her. The advice and guidance she gave was so helpful, and when the shower-hose broke on a Sunday, she did not rest until all was sorted.
Indeed, this proved so good a centre to see Tuscany that we lengthened our stay by another four nights. All within easy striking distance are Siena, Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Volterra, Monteriggione and San Giminiano; and self-catering, in the well-appointed kitchen part of the apartment kept the overall cost down, making this exceptionally good value for money.
Would I recommend this to my friends? In a heartbeat! It has been a real treat staying here.
Are there disadvantages? Well, I certainly found the shower very small (don’t try bending down to pick up the soap!) and the apartment was quite a walk from the car. A car is essential, and the nearest shop is several kilometres away, but all these are somewhat trivial criticisms in the overall assessment, and I would give Casa Vacanze as close to ten out of ten as is possible.
We have had a wonderful time here, with a magical view and glorious surroundings. If circumstances allow, my wife and I would love to stay here again, and if we get the opportunity, we shall certainly not be looking elsewhere!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the main road.

We had a wonderful vacation in Tuscany. Sisters Mery and Manola who own the property are so nice and kind and helpful people, that they gave us a great and beautiful impression about Italian hospitality. Rooms in the hotel are modern and clean, kitchen well equipped. And the surroundings are just amazing. Swimming in the pool on the hillside with the view over the Siena city was a great memorable experience as well. Although the location of the hotel is near a main road, it's not very busy in September nights. If you are not accustomed to drive on curvy mountain roads, you would be very happy that the hotel is easy accessible and you don't have to drive on one way dirt road to reach it. And what views you can admire on the road while driving to the location! We fell in love with staff, place, beautiful surroundings and would suggest this hotel to every traveler who wants to go to admire the beautiful Tuscan landscapes.

First we have to say, that the owner Manola and her sister Mary are great, very helpful, kind and warm people, so you feel welcome from the first minute you arrive.

Rooms are very clean, well equipped and the view is stunning. It is one of the most beautiful landscape we have ever seen. You can also enjoy it from a swimming pool.

Also the location is right in the middle of province of Siena, so it is the best starting point for trips (San Giminano 50 km, Cortona 50 km, Montalcino 40 km, Pienza 30 km ...)

A lovely self -catering facility within 15 minutes of Siena. Welcoming hosts. Rooms nicely set out and cooking facilities adequate for a short stay. Sufficient parking. Pool access. Lovely counrty side views and although near a busy road it is not intrusive.
