Being the second Hungarian family in Casa Mazzoni ever, we have won the Silver Medal. Yesss! :)
But Casa Mazzoni is for sure the winner place in our summer Holidays. Esther & Angelo, Aliana & Adriano, Rosetta & Marcello, and chef Claudia have made our one week stay unforgettably beautiful, to remember for a long-long time.
House and property are beautifully authentic for Tuscany, lying quietly in the middle of a forrest, where during night you can see hundreds of Lucciola (fireflies / glowworms), which is rare. Wonderful view to the valley, nice pool area, cosy places to sit around and relax, read or play in the garden or in front of the beautiful stone house. Friendly dogs are chasing lizards. Temperature is always a bit lower then in the valley or at the beach (40km / 1 hour), which is nice on hot summer days. Rooms are comfortable (had good sleep) and have the flair of an old country house, decorated also with Esther's self-made charming puppets.
We have made trips by own car to closer and further surroundings, to places that are not so well known and crowded by tourists but very very beautiful, like Pitigliano, Sorano (2 hours far), but also to Pisa (1,5 hours). Siena, Firenze are not far either. Do not miss Roccatederighi, which is my favourite, and only 7 km away, also reachable by bike, even for kids around 10 years old.
For the kids' wish, we went to the beach a few times, too, Angelo can give you advice where to go, and even borrows you a beach umbrella.
We liked breakfast very much, a lot of different choices, sweet and salty dishes, too. The smiling mood of Rosetta was always a nice start into the day. Dinner brought always an exciting surprise, 4 courses, typical for the area, prepared by a local lady, Claudia. Our 10 year old son has eaten everything each evening till he could hardly move. So you can imagine, dinner was very good. We were always served with wines of our wish. Angelo has a large selection of fine wines from Tuscany, but also from other countries, like not so typically from Swiss, or even from Hungary (also a nice country to visit for friends of good wine)! :) If you have special wishes concerning food or drink Angelo is always happy to fulfil them. If someone is expecting here a Michelin 20 star snobbish, yuppie service, he/she is at the wrong place, wrong hotel. These dinners here are taken in a friendly, family atmosphere, where you can meet other likeable travellers, too, sitting at the same table. Here a warm Ciao to the young at heart couple from Milano. Also thanx to Alina and Adriano for serving.
We came home 2 weeks ago, since then we are praising Casa Mazzoni to all our friends and colleagues. So, all in all, we had a wonderful time there. This place is as if you would make holidays with family and friends in your own summer residence but with an own kind staff.
Gold Medal from us!
