“A good base for travelling round Tuscany” The owners are very welcoming, providing pick up from the airport and return which was very much appreciated also the trips to the supermarket to stock up on supplies. A welcome pack which was again appreciated.
It is a good base for travelling around Tuscany either by train, bus or car, plenty of information provided on the area with bus and train timetables.
The accommodation is well presented and the owners have worked hard to revive the villa bringing it back to life from its unloved state. Lovely gardens in which to sit and relax, eat a meal, read a book or play table tennis. Reasonably priced self catering accommodation making it affordable to various groups of people.
Initially on arrival one may think you are a bit off the beaten track but you will be suprised and find the train and bus services are frequent and reasonably priced making it a good base for getting to quite a few places in a short space of time.
I would thoroughly recommend this villa for the reasons set out above and already have to a number of friends and aquaintances.
“A haven of peace and quiet” The castle is in an excellent setting high up offering superb all round views.The accomodation is tastefully decorated and very well equiped and comfortable.The position of Gaiche is convenient for sightseeing with many pretty and interesting places to visit within easy travelling distance,Rome is only an hour and a half away.Daniela Carne is a charming and helpful host and we would not hesitate in recommending the castle as a memorable holiday destination.
“A little touch of heaven” Our stay at the Villa di Lupo was wonderful. Donatella and Antonio are magnificent hosts. Their love of the historic value of the villa is evident every time they speak of the villa. The restoration of the villa is very impressive.
We plan to make this our home base for our upcoming visits to Italy. I would love to bring the villa and it's proprietors to the US.
“A warm welcome, ideal location and quintessentially Italian villa - buonissima!” Donatella and Antonio were very generous hosts; welcoming us into their home and always happy to put themselves out to help.
The location was perfect for exploring Tuscony, either by car or by train from the nearby station. This was our first visit to this part of Italy and it has everything that one could want in a holiday - culture, beautiful beaches, excellent cuisine... Both Pisa and Florence are wonderful.
The villa is so typical of the houses in Italy - lots of space with most beautiful frescoes on the walls and ceilings - but the appartment was modern and well equipped.
“Great get away With friends and family” Car required but easy acess on auto strada to places such as Perugia, passanago, Florence Rome etc.. Great base for Umbria and Tuscany. Everything a group of friends or family require to get away and spend time together in a beautiful property... Can't wait to visit again..
