“Wonderful Tuscan experience, perfect villa!” This beautiful villa served as a home base for our family travels throughout Tuscany for a week and I must say that it has been perfect! The pool was wonderful for the children as were the villa’s bedrooms and overall amenities. Most appreciated were the views from the outdoor pergola and from the covered veranda… we spent hours and hours just looking at the lake and enjoying the magnificent sunsets! The grounds offered a truly relaxing atmosphere as well as fun activities such as playing in the pool all day and making our own pizza in the pizza oven in the evenings! What is better than eating a pizza prepared by your own kids?
We highly recommend this property to anyone visiting the wonderful town of Cortona, the Trasimeno lake as well as the most fabulous places in Tuscany! We will be back!!
“the drive is well worth it” La Casina is about 15 mins from the small hill town of Poppi in Arezzo Province,the Tapanessi family were wonderful hosts ,you need some guidance from Poppi to locate the villa which was provided by Nicolo ,but once you arrive, the villa's facilities and location are exceptional as described.Our numbers varied over the 7 days from 8-9 persons,the villa was perfect for the size of our group, the family provided us with wine cheeses and antipasto for our arrival.We tended to eat in for either lunch or dinner each day,you just don't wish to leave such a beautiful setting.
Poppi ( the village ) is a beautiful hill town,wonderful restaurants across from the Castello,shopping for food/wine supplies was convenient with a COOP and Penny's in the nearby town,but I would recommend at least a day trip to the regional town of Arezzo,the old historical section of Arezzo is something to see and experience.The movie " Life is Beautiful "was filmed in the old section ,take the little train service from Pont a Poppi it takes about an hour to Arezzo,it was one of the highlights of the trip .
Gigi Tapannesi was at the villa most mornings tending the pool and any needs of the guests ( without intruding ),he is a charming man as are his family.On the Thursday before our departure Nicolo brought out to the villa some fresh tagliatelle which his father had made that afternoon ,more than enough to feed 8 persons.Overall it was a wonderful stay in a beautiful part of eastern Tuscany.
“Great villa and surroundings and wonderfully welcoming, helpfull and friendly hosts”
