We were a total of 5 couples, from Ontario, Canada, who have just spent probably the best two weeks of our lives at the wonderful villa of Il Castellaccio.
The accommodations were great, with all five bedrooms having individual ensuites. All bedrooms and bathrooms were beautifully appointed, with really comfortable beds and spotless bathroom facilities.The big country kitchen had everything was needed: a special thanks to chef Jacopo for the elegant Tuscan meal prepared in our kitchen.
We also cooked pizza, steaks,hamburgers, and gnocchi at the villa, stimulated by numerous bottles of wine from the region. Leonardo, our gracious host, has a well stocked drinks buffet in his living room, featuring excellent wines at affordable prices.
Add to all this a refreshing swimming pool, great to relax around after a day's excursion,plus vineyards, olive trees, and a forest including wild boar and deer, and this is really the perfect holiday location.
Finally,our thanks to Leonardo, who was our Italian voice in making dinner reservations, solving rental car issues, and train schedules. He is always accessible and approachable.We loved our visit, and we hope to return in the near future.More
