Customer Reviews

Overall:
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable time at Casa dei Venti - La Tempesta. Our host, Filippo, was very kind and generous and helped us with several outings in the area.
Enjoyed Most:
The location in the center of southern Tuscany made it easy to explore Siena, and all of the beautiful hilltop towns in the area. Since we were in Italy for 3 weeks, we chose to spend the middle week at this location to unwind from all of the tourist activities. The location allowed us to explore places like Montalcino and Montepulciano in the morning and relax in the quiet farm setting in the evening.
Enjoyed Least:
There was no real disappointment with the property.
Surrounding Area:
The hilltop towns were spectacular and there were several wineries that were easily reached from this location.
Nearby Events or Locales:
The village of Monteroni d'Arbia was within walking distance and contained a nice restaurant and a small super market.
Directions:
We used Google Maps on my smartphone the entire time we were in Italy and found it very useful in both driving around, and in walking the cities and villages.
