“a proper getaway in an authentic and charming part of north Tuscany” What's nice about this place is you can do as much or as little as you feel like: its a great place to be and be relaxed and its a really convinient location for the region. The house has amazingly enriching views across to the peaks and down to the valley. Admitedly we were very lucky with the weather it wwas super-lovely most of the time. At this time of year a lolt of the coastal restaraunts are clossed. But in towns everything was normal, markets are good too and there was a list of things recommended by the owners which worked well. Not touristy. Relaxed feeling in the house by the fire in the evening.
Civitella Marittima house

“Excellent accomodation in the Tuscan countryside” I don't often fill out reviews on the internet but feel compelled to do so for the excellent hospitality we received when staying at Casina di Rosa. The owners were ever so accomodating, meeting us and helping our arrival, providing food for when we arrived as well as odd bits for cooking with, and the house was full of books and leaflets of things to do. Towels were provided, there is a washing machine and the kitchen is well equipped enabling you to cook a decent meal; there was so much there which allowed us to settle in right away. The house has two main rooms, a kitchen/dining room and a lounge/bedroom as well as a bathroom, which was plenty big enough for the two of us staying there as most days were spent out exploring. The house is situated in the centre of a village which has a few shops and is 15 minutes away from a town which has a couple of supermarkets. The village is a little way off the road that runs between Siena and Grosseto, much of which is dual carriageway, allowing easy access around the area. I would recommend a car to explore the area though we took the bus to visit Siena, which is about 40 minutes away. I would fully recommend this accomodation, it is clean, well thought-out and provides a great base for exploring the region of Tuscany south of Siena. I would recommend visiting Siena and climbing the tower, visiting the nearby thermal springs such as Saturnia or Petriolo, and strolling around and enjoying lunch in the beautiful hilltop villages nearby.

“Sea View, Picturesque Surroundings and an Excellent Pool” La Terrazza is set on the hillside with views over the sea, amongst the immaculate gardens of the owners. The property is located away from Anacapri, which is a 25 minute walk away or 5 minutes by bus. It has a well maintained pool, which again offers a sea view. Candace was there to welcome us and offer her advice on the do's and don'ts on staying on the island as well as her recommendations of where to eat. The accommodation is clean with a small kitchen area and comfortable beds but you spend most of your time outside either sitting at either of the terraces or by the pool. It is an ideal place to relax after a days sight seeing or just enjoying a drink before or after dinner. The nearest restuarant, Il Cucciolo, is a 5 minute walk away and apart from the wonderful food offers the best place to watch the sunset over the island of Ischia. Two other restaurants situated at either side of the island are Lido de Faro and Le Grottelle, both again have excellent views to go with the food. There are plenty of interesting things to see if you are prepared to walk rather than using the buses and, expensive, taxis. There is the Old Forts walk on the west of the island and the Pizzolungo in the south, which offers views of the Faraglioni rocks. Both of these are free from the vast numbers of day trippers. You can also walk from Anacapri to Capri down the old footpath consisting of 800 steps, which offers wonderful views of the island. However, the islands main attraction, the Blue Grotto, is over rated and over priced. Fully expecting the grotto to be filled with a blue light, you are in fact in complete darkness with the blue water only visible around the entrance. The 3 or 4 minutes you spend in there are not worth the entrance fee. In fact you can take a 2 hour around-the-island boat trip and swim through the green grotto for a better experience. I was surprised as to how much there was to see on the island if you were prepared to venture out on your own and not get lured into any of the organised excursions.

“charming town, v spacious accommodation and lovelyviews from balcony” The whole family just loved this area and town - so near to special places to visit and Ancona airport. The very spacious rooms accommodated us all well, particularly the enormous family room with ensuite downstairs, making it possible for privacy at all levels. Although the road up to the town is steep and bendy it is well worth it for the views from the balcony on the rear of the house.
