“Amazing, relaxing, beautiful location. One of the best holidays we have ever had!” We travelled from Australia and this was our first ever visit to Italy. The accomodation was very inviting and comfortable and far exceeded our needs in every way. The owner was always very helpful and prompt in answering any questions we had and in providing information about activities that were available. We visited the beautiful town of Porte Venere, Florence with it's amazing architecture and museums and of course skiing in Cerreto. The local people were very friendly and the food and wine was amazing! I will definately be recommending this location and acommodation to friends and family. My only regret is that we did not stay for longer. An overall amazing experience that we will always remember. Thank you
“Beautiful house and surroundings which exceeded our expectations” Having spent two holidays in succession at glorious Monte Castello with a party of six adults and two young children, we cannot recommend it highly enough. The house is extremely comfortable and provides everything you could want; the pool and its surrounds, which include a large shaded area, are very well maintained and enjoy fabulous views over chestnut tree-covered hills to the magnificent mountains beyond; the night skies are wondrous(!); there is a fabulous place to eat-out nearby, and the little village, Tavernelle (one bar!) is in easy walking distance. If you are looking for a peaceful, away-from-it-all holiday with all mod-cons,we thoroughly recommend Monte Castello - and its attentive owners!.
“Treasure in Tuscany” We had a great week at Casa II Campo in March. Would love to come back in September sometime so we could enjoy the lovely grounds and pool.
This was a good base for exploring Cortona, Pienza, Montepulciano, Perugia and much more. The train station was about 15 minutes away and it was easy to catch the hour and a half train to Florence. We ate at some wonderful restaurants in the area, several in Cortona, and were lucky to walk in on a Womans Day celebration at the restaurant right there in Montanare.
We have stayed at many homes in Europe and around the world and would highly recommend this home for anyone looking to explore the Tuscany area.
Thank You Sylvie for all your help in arranging our stay.
