We've spent 3 unforgettable weeks at I Casali. The first week with friends from Australia, the remainder part, just the 2 of us. We were all thrilled by the warm hospitality the owners welcomed us with and offered throughout our stay. Eva and Pietro, in all their modesty and respect for our privacy, contributed greatly to a marvellous holiday.
The apartments are nicely decorated and have a basic equipment of excellent quality. The new swimming pool is a big asset, but so is the little stream down hill for cooling off. The house's location on top of a olive grove hill is really stunning. It's quiet with only nature sounds (wind, birds, a dog) to be heard. The views are specatuclar and invite to sit and stare around in amazement of so much beauty. It's an excellent place to for hiking in the forests. And within some driving there's a lot to discover more of Tuscany's treasures.We recommend fervently these apartments, also if you come with kids, provided you like the quiet nature and do not mind to drive a bit to reach the rest of the world.
This property was GREAT. The apartment was comfortable, clean and well stocked for everything we needed. The views were wonderful and the ideas Pietro gave us for exploring the area were useful and all fun. The view from the rock in Micciano was wonderful. Pietro was available for all of our questions. It was a peaceful place to relax and enjoy the Tuscany country side.
If you want rest and relaxation, this is certainly the place for you. As previous reviewers have pointed out, it is quite a way from anywhere. The nearest village, Micciano (which by the way is not a mere 10 minutes walk away), has a smart restaurant and a shop which we never actually found to be open, but is pretty. Much better for shopping is Ponteginori which has everything you need, including petrol. It's about 12-15 minutes' drive away.
The house is wonderfully situated on the top of a hill with great views all round. It's a lovely old building surrounded by flower and herb beds, and a vineyard just below. Everything that we needed (there were 3 of us) was provided, including towels for the swimming pool, which was excellent.
We visited many of the towns and villages in the area and would particularly recommend Montecattini val di Cecini and Casale Marittimo. Not to mention Volterra, San Gimignano, Siena and Lucca!
Pietro and Eva were very welcoming as has been mentioned by other reviewers.
As our heading points out, a unique getaway.
Das Appartment ist wie beschrieben sehr geraumig, stilvoll eingerichtet und eingebettet in eine malerische Landschaft mit Blick auf das Doerfchen Micciano.
Nicht zu uebertreffen ist die Gastfreundschaft und Hilfsbereitschaft
von Eva und Pietro.
Der ebenfalls stilvolle Pool wird gut gepflegt und bietet den Bewohnern beider Appartments ausreichend Platz.
Es stehen kostenlos 2 Mountainbikes und eine Waschmaschine zur Verfügung.
Die Atmosphäre in I Casali ist zu jeder Tageszeit außergwöhnlich, egal ob die Sonne aufgeht, untergeht, scheint oder ein Gewitter aufzieht.
Verpflegung sollte man ausreichend dabei haben, da die Wege weit sind. Vor der Anreise bekommt man genaue Hinweise auf Einkaufsmöglichkeiten.
Wir können das Domizil uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
Our family loved our time here. It. Was. In. The. Middle. Of. Nowhere. This is why we loved it. We spent time in this house for a few days on and around Easter Sunday. We went to the teeeny tiny church for Easter Sunday Mass. Our visit was amazing. This was the perfect base for us to visit Pisa, Lucca and Volterra. It's off the beaten path (as in these town folks only speak Italian and are still excited and courteous about foreigners). My kids enjoyed getting lost in the hills of the forest, we loved sitting at the picnic table, drinking wine and watching the sunset. I feel so blessed to have stumbled upon this little slice of heaven. Owners were quick, responsive and excellent hosts. I tell everyone I know who is visiting to make a trip here. Our world is vastly changing and becoming more and more global... this place is true, unadulterated Italy. Something to treasure, whille we can......
a really nice location for a quiet holiday. The house and the hosts are just super. The house itself is beautifully divided, all residents have private areas as well as common areas. Inside, everything is available for a nice stay. The kitchen is well equipped, the bedrooms include a good mattress and nice bright rooms. There exist outdoors tables and benches so that you can have breakfast in the morning or the evening meal outside and enjoy the wonderful views of the countryside. The hosts help with advice and practical tips for Tours in the Tuscany, without being intrusive. Micciano is a good starting point for many tours (Pisa, Lucca, Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano). For the kids, the dog and the cat Cora Aldina were the highlight. Also the Pool has a good Quality and was for us and the Kids a real pleasure. So for us it was not the Last Visit to Tuscany, and to I Casali !
