(Casale Giuseppe)

I had to write and thank you for the wonderful vacation we had staying on your beautiful estate. Our party was large - 9 adults and 2 children but the house was big enough to allow everyone to find a space of their own.

The gardens and the view were wonderful. It was very relaxing lying by the huge pool watching the horses grazing and trying to spot all the different wildlife as the sun set. I know how much hard work you put into making things just right for your guests - it was much appreciated.

We were a group of 11 people (6 of whom have known each other since childhood, and 5 spouses), and we chose to celebrate an important birthday in Tuscany. One of the group did all the work and found the villa which met our needs in more ways than we could imagine. It was charming, comfortable, and had a wonderful atmosphere. The property was special with olive trees, horses, cows, and even "cinghiale". Arrangements were made to have Amel cook for us a couple evenings, but we found the dinners so wonderful and the dining room so accommodating, we had her cook 2 additional dinners. The meals included broccoli risotto, gnocchi, mixed grill fish (cooked right on the open hearth in the kitchen) as well as tiramisu and torta della nonna. Christina took great care of us. The location was excellent. We were able to easily visit Pienza, Orvieto, Siena, Arezzo, Monte San Savino, Lucignano, Florence. We also had a wonderful day trip to the Banfi winery for a delicious lunch and tasting. We enjoyed our tour by Giorgio, and the bus was very a delightful way to see the beautiful countryside and not worry about driving. We had a great visit, and please feel free to contact me for more information

Hi Darren Saxon, (Villa San Castella)

We have finally returned after a most satisfactory holiday in Italy. I thought it was worth making a few comments about our stays in each of the two villas - so this note is in regard to Villa San Castella. All 5 of our party were very pleased with the quality of the villa, the location, the security and most importantly the helpfulness and availability of our hosts.

Compared to our expectations based on the website (which were high!!) we scored a 10/10. The blend of history and age with the modern facilities was a perfect fit. The immaculately maintained swimming pool was brilliant (the great weather helped here of course!). Our host, Lamberto, was great - being helpful when needed, not intruding on us but at the same time when we were in but at the same time when we were in the mood for a chat about the area or the history being willing to sit down with us and impart his excellent knowledge. This definitely added to our experience. His english and his tolerance of our poor italian worked very well.

We also found the location ideal for experiencing a large part of Tuscany and San Sepolcro was a hidden treasure that deserves more exposure. So we would be happy to strongly recommend the villa and location to others.
