Surrounding Area:
The area is idyllic.

Mike, June

Overall:
This property fulfilled all of our images of what a Tuscan vacation would be. The family was incredibly gracious, hospitable and helpful. It was a stunning experience. Having been built on Etruscan ruins and having a history that can be traced to ca. 1100 A.D., this property was the perfect place for us - a group of teachers - to be. The pictures on the web site do not come close to doing justice to the estate.
Enjoyed Most:
Spaciousness and grandeur of the estate, and the family that owned it. It was stunning. I was responsible for finding the villa where our group of 30 would be staying. When I was asked what was the best part of our 2 weeks in Tuscany, I replied that it was the awed and stunned reaction of my colleagues when they arrived at the end of the cedar-lined drive at the villa. I am very happy that I took my Travel Advisor's recommendation and chose this property. The villa and the 2 dinners that the owners arranged for us where nothing short of magical.
Enjoyed Least:
nothing
Surrounding Area:
There were no urban or suburban developments nearby. It was convenient to all the major Tuscan cities and hill towns.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monteriggioni was within a 30-45 minute walk. This walled town was the spectacular view from almost any place on the estate. It was magical.
Tips or Restaurants:
Don't be hesitant ask the owners about suggestions for restaurants they never steered us wrong.

Overall:
We can't wait to return!
Enjoyed Most:
The property was absolutely beautiful. The views were incredible and the location was very convenient for day trips and for getting food. We cooked several meals for 23 people in one of the kitchens and it was very well equipped for our needs. We had our wedding in the garden followed by an unbelievable meal catered by a local chef. It was definitely something that we all will remember for the rest of our lives.
Enjoyed Least:
Nothing!
Surrounding Area:
Picturesque Tuscan countryside, olive trees, vineyards, cypress trees. It was very accessible by car. Many of the guests simply took a taxi from the Siena train station.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monteriggioni was about a 15-minute walk away by a trail. It is a very well preserved walled city with a few restaurants and shops. Siena, which offers much more was only about a 15-minute car ride away.
Tips or Restaurants:
We highly suggest taking advantage of the local markets and grocery stores and cooking meals at the villa. The food is very inexpensive and it was a lot of fun for everyone to participate.
Directions:
All of the taxi drivers were able to find it with no problem just as long as you could give them the address and map.
Check In Out:
The owners of the villa were great in helping us get settled and also with the wedding arrangements. We could not have asked for more gracious hosts.

March

Overall:
Utterly fantastic!!
Enjoyed Most:
The location was out of this world. Gorgeous views and the property had so much history. I could not recommend a better place to spend a week or more. Also, the property owners were very accommodating and helpful.
Enjoyed Least:
I honestly can't tell you anything we didn't like.
Surrounding Area:
The scenery, vineyards, the ease with which to travel to other cities.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The nearest town was Monteriggioni. It was within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
You must eat at Il Pozzo in Monteriggioni. Incredible food in an incredible setting. Bring a sense of adventure and a state of mind to relax and have one of the best travel experiences of your life!!
Directions:
Drive until you get to the big cypress trees.
Check In Out:
About as easy as it gets.

August

Overall:
I would and already have recommended the villa to anyone. My experience with your firm was excellent. When I return to Tuscany I intend to stay at the same location.
Enjoyed Most:
The ambiance, the history, and the location.
Enjoyed Least:
Swimming pool was not very convenient or useful.
Surrounding Area:
The view, convenience for grocery shopping, and convenience to the areas we were interested in touring.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monteriggioni, yes
Tips or Restaurants:
Future guests should be aware of the presence of the large dogs, not an issue for us, but I would be surprised if it is not for some people. The restaurant at Monteriggioni was one of our best meals in Tuscany. The cooking class at the villa was a very good time for everyone.

Overall:
Go! It is a beautiful villa with surrounding adventure. Having a base camp was easy for day traveling, but it could be a quiet retreat if that's what you want. We stayed one week and felt a few more days would have been better. A reason to go back. The villa is very safe, if older kids wanted to stay behide for the day. There is a pool, ping-pong table, or sleeping for those who need a quiet day away from family, either parents or kids. We traveled with another family of 5, 3 teenagers as well. They stayed in the main villa, so it was very easy to meet up. The family that owns the villa is very kind and would do anything to help us. I would most definitely like to go back!
Enjoyed Most:
We felt very welcomed at La Casa. It is a family owned and run villa, which includes their daily life. Our family of 5 felt very comfortable walking around the villa to visit another family on the estate that we were traveling with. Sharing the entire villa with another family was perfect. Our teenagers were comfortable.
Enjoyed Least:
The owner has large dogs. They were friendly for the most part.
Surrounding Area:
Traveling to the many little hill towns. One week was not enough time, but a good start.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monteriggioni was about a 45-minute walk away.
Tips or Restaurants:
The villa was well stocked as far as cooking pots, for feeding about 8 people. However, if more were needed, I'm sure Louisa would accommodate. Hairdryers were a plus as well as a washer. There was a fantastic restaurant in the town of Monteriggioni as well as a fun bar. Easy to find, town is only a walled square. We also had a cooking class at the main villa for 10 of us, 6 teenagers great fun!!
