Customer Reviews

Overall:
Enjoyed location due to plenty of hiking opportunities with our dog. The property is fine for two people or perhaps a small family. Wouldn't recommend it for two couples.
Enjoyed Most:
Seclusion, great views, and the pool.
Enjoyed Least:
Living room lacked comfortable seating for two people, especially on a rainy day. In that case one gets the couch, the other the bench or a bed to read. When the weather is good, the property is very enjoyable!
Nearby Events or Locales:
Castelmuzio is within a few minutes drive with one place for drinks and dining. We'd highly recommend driving.
Tips or Restaurants:
Montisi, within 3 miles from Castelmuzio, has three restaurants with good food, service, and reasonable prices. Wine and grappa are excellent. Pienza and Montepulciano should be visited.
Directions:
We are quite often in Tuscany (from Switzerland) and have no problem with directions or addresses. A map of Tuscany will do and a few words with locals (Google translator) help with the final stretch.

Overall:
A Tuscan holiday for us is one where easy pace, quiet, and beauty dominate. Casa Plebana more than met these criteria. Marco and Paula were perfect hosts, the location could not be surpassed, the proximity to hill towns was perfect, and the farmhouse itself (inside and out) was highly liveable.
Enjoyed Most:
Location, quality of the farmhouse, comfort of the beds, good shower, and good kitchen. It's just a great private farmhouse with minimal deficiencies.
Enjoyed Least:
A big table dominates the sitting space and the benches become uncomfortable over time. There is also a couch but it has sparse lighting for reading. This is clearly an outdoor living space location. We were there when it rained and was still cool much of the time.
Surrounding Area:
Its one of the most beautiful areas on the earth! It's 5 minutes from the farmhouse to the road, then 2 minutes to Castelmuzio, 5 minutes to Montisi, 10 to Trequanda, 20 to Pienza, and 30 to Montalcino. The roads are good, the scenery is incredible, and the places to visit in these towns are plentiful.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Castelmuzio was the closest town but it's not walkable. Montisi was also nearby (the turnoff for the farmhouse was between both towns).
Tips or Restaurants:
We loved Trattoria dei Barbi below Montalcino. We ate dinner at the farmhouse and ate lunch out while touring. There is a good Coop in Castelmuzio for staples and supplies. We brought TP, paper towels, etc. but didn't need them. Salt, sugar, and desired spices in plastic bags are a good idea since they could or could not be in the house. We brought coffee as we got in late and on a Saturday; we knew we would want coffee before starting out.
Directions:
Marco will come meet you when you exit the autostrada. Very helpful. We could not have found it without him.

Overall:
A very peaceful and relaxing holiday in the middle of the most beautiful countryside with many historic towns and villages within easy reach.
Enjoyed Most:
The location. Fantastic views - splendid isolation!
Enjoyed Least:
The living area was pretty "spartan" with just the one long table and benches and a two-seater sofa.
Surrounding Area:
Fantastic mediaeval towns and villages, many perched on hilltops. Very good wine in Montepulciano and Montalcino. The town of Pienza is a gem.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Castelmuzio is around 2 km away but not easy to walk to.
Tips or Restaurants:
Go and eat on the terrace at Il Chiostro Di Pienza in the town of Pienza. Not cheap but wonderful food, excellent laid back service, and a view to die for.
Directions:
The directions were good as far as Castelmuzio. We would not have found the villa unless we had been met by the key holder. The villa is 1.6 km off the road down a very rough track which appears to be heading nowhere! Sounds weird but it's actually part of the charm!
Check In Out:
When calling the key holder to arrange to meet it was a little worrying to hear the words "no English". With a little perseverance, we managed to work out a plan.
