Customer Reviews

Overall:
From the time we arrived we were made to feel like family by Filippo and Rachel. The experience was just what we were looking for. A little piece of heaven in the middle of Tuscany. As a life experience it gave you the atmosphere and time to reflect on people you meet and the peaceful tranquility a place such as San Fabiano gives you.
Enjoyed Most:
The tranquility. A place to reflect in peaceful surrounds yet there is all you need.
Surrounding Area:
The scenery. Although the sunflowers had been harvested, the rolling hills were still beautiful in the daylight.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monteroni D'Arbia which was within walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Some of the things we did not need to take, such as towels as most was provided at San Fabiano.
Directions:
When travelling to the property: When you turn left into San Martino from over the bridge from town, the property is the first on the right.

Brad, September

Overall:
Fantastic! We were blessed with wonderful warm, sunny weather and enjoyed sitting at the picnic table enjoying the views. There were wonderful hosts and guests at the property and we loved walking into Monteroni for a quick espresso or drink. The location was perfect for Tuscan excursions.
Enjoyed Most:
Private and historic. The views, parking, and cleanliness. We found everything to be so well taken care of.
Surrounding Area:
Close to Siena and many smaller village towns. Buonconvento is also very close and a wonderful afternoon trip.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monteroni D'Arbia. Yes, quick 5-minute walk. Monteroni is a wonderful little area, highly recommend La Galera for food. There's a great mini mart with fresh bread and produce and great deals on wine. We also used the small laundromat after having traveled for a week and needing of clean clothes.
Tips or Restaurants:
If going during warm weather seasons, bring a suit as there is a pool. Highly recommend the cooking class offered at the villa for an evening.
Directions:
Our GPS wasn't very accurate but we called the property and were able to get clear directions easily.

Tess, October

Overall:
We had a very nice experience staying at Cas Dei Venti- Il Ponente. The owners were very helpful and gracious hosts. They invited us to a jazz concert and dinner the first night which were both excellent. Unfortunately, our travels took up too much time and we couldn't take full advantage of hospitality offers and the use of the facilities. Overall we enjoyed the stay and would certainly recommend it to others...especially those who have more time to take advantage of the amenities.
Enjoyed Most:
The quietness and the agricultural surroundings.
Enjoyed Least:
No dish washer.
Surrounding Area:
The beauty of the fields and surroundings and the closeness of the grocery store.
Nearby Events or Locales:
You could walk to Monteroni d'Arbia.
Tips or Restaurants:
Try to plan some relaxation time while staying at this facility. It's a great place just to rest.
Directions:
Use a good GPS system and you'll have no trouble. Ours brought us right to the door.

Curtis , July

Overall:
The property was very nice, spacious, and the hosts were great. The property included plenty of privacy and the bicycles were great for exploring. The location was central and made it easy to visit many cities and wine regions.
Enjoyed Most:
The hosts were very welcoming and even took us to a local festival the first night we arrived. We really got a taste of the local culture.
Enjoyed Least:
For the most part, the property was great, but due to the low altitude of the property, the view wasn't great. We were, however, able to get to good views with a few minutes walk.
Surrounding Area:
The wineries in the area and the city of Siena were amazing.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monteroni d'Arbia was well within walking distance and we went often to buy groceries.
Tips or Restaurants:
Visit Siena often! It's so close and beautiful!
Directions:
We used a GPS and it was pretty easy. Perhaps making a note about the difference between a city and a commune would help.
Check In Out:
No problems.

Chris, June

Overall:
I highly recommend this place - everything positive.
Enjoyed Most:
Its location, its uniqueness- the fact that the owner redid the farmhouse - as he says, sort of his own version of Under the Tuscan Sun! Screens on the windows, air conditioning available - if needed
Enjoyed Least:
There was nothing I disliked.
Surrounding Area:
It was very easy to get to anywhere we chose.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monterone d'Arbia - the lovely little town. I didn't walk because of lack of sidewalks - but it is in easy walking distance.
Tips or Restaurants:
Osteria degli Archi - - friends of the owner's - right in town. Lovely ambiance and beautiful proprietors so eager to please. They specialize in fish and we were not disappointed
Directions:
I had the use of a navigation system which really made things easy!
Check In Out:
The owner was there, waiting - at the appointed check-in time. He provided concise information and we were made to feel right at home, right away!

Jane, September

Enjoyed Most:
The view from the hill behind the property and help from hosts for touring and eating. The pool was a welcome feature. The views from everywhere on this property are marvelous. Good location to Siena and surrounding area.
Surrounding Area:
Everything! Loved the quiet walks in the country around the villa. Loved the food and sights. Locals were helpful and friendly.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Monterobi Di Arbia was the closest village. Yes, it was within walking distance of the property.
Tips or Restaurants:
Lucignano Di Arbia has a good restaurant with great view of the valley. Siena has too many good restaurants to mention. Bosco Di La Spina in Murlo was good, too.
