We had a lovely, relaxing time at La Casellina and the host, Mino, was most helpful and accommodating. The location is perfect for exploring a slice of authentic Tuscany with no not too many tourists. La Casellina is within biking distance (if you're fit and can handle the hills) from Monticchiello and Pienza. There is a very nice restaurant in Monticchiello called La Cantina - beautiful local food and wine here. We borrowed La Casellina's bikes and cycled to Pienza. It was a tough 12km but worth it - Pienza is a lovely, historic hill top town with great restaurants. La Cassellina's host, the very lovely Mino (who sports some beautiful shoes by the way) was most helpful, carting us to and from Montepulciano so we could go look around for one of the days. A car would be handy in a place like Tuscany but with a fantastic host like Mino plus bikes we managed to get by OK. The breakfast spreads in the morning, with homemade jam, delcious coffee, bread and prosciutto were also a highlight. We highly recommend La Casellina for your Tuscan experience.
