Perfect Place for a Perfect Week in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

We looked for something in the heart of Tuscany for a spring vacation and found the perfect place in La Casina Toscana. If you have never heard of Montepulciano, it’s a beautiful medieval city on top of a hill with nice shops, restaurants and photo opportunities at every corner. La Casina is outside the city walls in the countryside - but it’s only a short, 5 min walk to the city gate (remember, Italian towns don’t sprawl like US cities) and if you prefer there is even an elevator for added convenience. Davide, the owner, met us on the day of arrival and showed us around. The house is really nice, well kept and very clean. Three bedrooms, two baths, a kitchen and a living room over two stories. If the weather permits you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful view of the city with a glass of Montepulciano vine. Davide was very helpful. He speaks excellent English and responded quickly to emails and text messages when we had a question. Given its central location, Montepulciano was a perfect base for day trips to Florence, Siena and the beautiful Val d’Orcia.

Convenient country retreat

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I recently stayed at La Casina Toscana for three weeks from late May to the middle of June. We were there by ourselves for two weeks and had another couple staying with us for a week. The house has been lovenly remodeled and is a charming combination of brick, stone, and wood finishes. Upstairs there are two good size bedrooms with a smallish bathroom in between. Downstairs there is another bathroom, a living/dining room, a small kitchen, and a small third bedroom. Everything we needed for an extended stay was provided. There were also two outside sitting areas where we spent quite a bit of time relaxing, reading and enjoying the views.

La Casina Toscana is set in a rural area but is very convenient to Montepulciano's centro storico (historic district). A local bus runs from the nearby bus station up to and through the city. The bus station is within walking distance and a modern Conad grocery store, a wonderful local restaurant, and two pastry shops are also close by. We were driving a leased car and were please that free parking was included on site. It was quick and easy to pick up the start of several roads leading in various directions from Montepulciano out to other hill towns, and it was a great pleasure to drive through the beautiful Tuscan countryside to visit them.

Davide was a very attentive host. Our GPS could not find his house so he came and got us and led us to it. He explained all the workings of the house and recommended several restaurants that we might like. He was very responsive when we needed help with a couple of requests.

The only reason I did not give a 5 star rating is that the property is a little small for four people. The other couple staying with us had to go downstairs to have their own bathroom and the kitchen is functional but small. The stairs are steep so it definitely is not a good situation for someone with mobility issues. The property also has the pluses and minuses of being in a rural area. It is away from the city noises but it is exposed to country noises. On balance we were happy to be able to enjoy the country setting while still being able to look up at beautiful Montepulciano above us.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the nice description and for the constructive criticism you have made. La Casina Toscana is not big, but I think it has everything you need to spend a relaxing stay, it is true that upstairs there is only one bathroom but it is very unlikely that four people simultaneously need to use it, for emergencies there's always another bathroom on the ground floor. The internal staircase is a bit steep, people with mobility issues can still go from the outer road to reach the lower floor. The sounds you hear are typical of the Tuscan countryside, for some people they are songs. Thanks for everything, I hope to welcome you again! Davide

Heartwarming!!

  • 5 of 5

Picture the perfect house and the perfect host for a 4 person Tuscan stay and you will realize it with La Casina Toscana and Davide! It is in a great location for exploring the city of Montepulciano and the Tuscan area, in general. Walking distance to grocery stores, laundry mats, churches and the beautiful city center of Montepulciano. It is cozy and warm. The views are breathtaking. Davide has to be the most accomodating host that I have dealt with! It can easily accomodate a fifth person, but I would not go beyond that. Great kitchen and dining/family area. Working wood-burning fireplace! All we could ask for and more!

Heavenly stay in Montepulciano

  • 5 of 5

05th March to 14th March 2018

La Casina Toscana is everything you would wish for a stay in the beautiful countryside

of Montepulciano - The house is beautiful- cozy, welcoming , very well appointed

and perfectly positioned to explore Tuscany - You will fall in love!!

- An easy transfer from Chiusi Railway if you come in by train - Taxi Cab

approx 25 EUR for a 15-20 min ride to the house but I would strongly recommend a car for your

stay - Driving is easy , roads are well marked and not terribly busy - Both Hertz and Europcar are

close to the Chiusi railway station - Davide is a wonderful host and always available with recommendations and assistance - We are so grateful that Davide is sharing his wonderful

home and will definitely return!! .Grazie mille per una meravigliosa vacanza!!
