What our guests have had to say:
About 5 Kms from Castiglion and on a lovely hillside setting with fantastic views, this is the perfect place to totally relax in absolute peace. Although slightly rustic, the villa was extremely clean and comfortable and the owner was always available to provide any assistance. The pool was clean and was an added bonus.

Easy to enjoy the wonderful scenery of tuscany and to have a wonderful pool and gardens all for us. The house very good and comfortable. the welcome gifts of fresh fruits , wine and some breakfast pastries - unexpected and very nice thought from the owner. Good sizeing of rooms, good internet and lots of extras for us to enjoy here. Enjoyable too as a home to go off and explore the area with good tips and help
A good find, lots of wonderful views of the countryside and the hilltown in the distance. pretty gardens and good private pool to enjoy. The villa has a new modern bathroom, and the kitchen has most things to make a good home here - a dishwasher would be useful, but it did not spoil our experience. Besides enjoying the pool. terrace barbecues and all of the obvious pleasures, the owners notes and personal advice for day trips around the region along with restaurant and winery guidance was very welcome.
we arrived after a long journey from Milan airport ( better to use the local tuscany airports florence and pisa it bologna we now know) and so to arrive and enjoy the calm scenery , our own private pool and a welcome basket was perfect. the place has great views, and the space inside is perfect for family of four to enjoy New bathroom was a good surprise good to return to
A quiet setting, the terrace with view if the lawn garden and pool wonderful, plus the view of the town (tuscan hill town castiglion) magnificent just the two of us - with most time spent at the cottage, with a few sight-seeing trips in between ( we really enjoyed Arezzo, Siena and Cortona and the closest town with festivals castiglion was full of character a very enjoyable experience and very easy going .
Very pleasant summer holiday, the three of us plus our doggie. Helpful owners with advice on local events and restaurants and places not to be missed in the area. The cottage very comfortable with good wifi and a lovely pool. A place we can easily return.
Family of 4 spent an ideal fortnight at this remote property with a pool, high up off the beaten track on an olive-groved hillside, overlooking Castelion Florentino. A reasonable distance to town where there are all amenities. The nearest village has a small shop & bar/restaurant with friendly proprietor. Owner, and English-speaking agent, of Casa Serena were extremely friendly and helpful both on arrival and during our stay - bringing clean sheets & towels part way through - and helping with trains, & restaurants in nearby towns. We can recommend Di Roggi in Castiglion Fiorentino and La Grotta in Cortona. The kids also loved the pizzas in the local bar/restaurant. If you want a tranquil relaxing holiday, away from it all, this is a great place and convenient enough by car to go sightseeing in Tuscany.
From the time of booking we knew we had the right place for us. This very quiet little corner with nice views of the valley and distant towns, the olive grove setting was all perfect. The Private pool well maintained (the man came twice!) and the facilities for the children (including the obligatory WiFi and TV !) were all perfect. The closest shop about 1.5 km had all sorts of local produce as well as some local wines, further along the valley was the main town with at least 3 large supermarkets and on Thursday the market at Camucia and Friday at Castiglion were very interesting and recommended. The help from the owners was very knowledgeable - with some good tips on where to go and what not to miss. All in all - a really enjoyable stay.
