“our family are happy to have found the little village”
Reviewed July 27, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

we have enjoyed our holidays to Tuscany for the last four years and chose to stay here for a second year. The cottage (le Stella) has lots of space for us and, the additional studio attached was very useful for our visiting parents for three of the days of our 2 week stay here .

The air is clean, fresh and the views are wonderful. The cottage clean and bright and close too to the pizza oven and a short (20m) to the pool and pergolas surrounded by olives.

the town of Castiglion offers many festivals and is very quaint ( although the tourism here seems a little disorganised ) - but still worth the visit. Further on is Cortona and Pienza - both very enjoyable.

The bar at santa cristina is a good place for a short espresso and to buy small provisions. in the town are many markets and small shops - trapped intime - offering to sell a fresh piece of cheese, or a few slices of prosciutto, it really is quite wonderful.

The plus points are that the local agent is on hand and deals with any worries, some travel tips, (helping to arrange a simple wedding ceremony for other guests!) and always able to make us smile. Mainly small families of 3-4 and, easy going and interesting to meet.

The downside, is the road to the village which is a a white road and, first impressions can be off-putting, but easy thereafter - so, we came back a second year.
