  • Grazie, Grazie!!

    "My husband, I and two other couples just spent an amazing 5 days at Villa Stefania. Luigi and Stefania were great hosts. They made sure that we felt very welcome and had everything we needed for our stay. Stefania surprised us two mornings of our stay with delicious breakfast pastries. One evening we returned from dinner to find homemade tiramisu for our dessert. We were very spoiled!! The villa is clean and modernized, but still gave you the feeling of old world charm. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The washer was an added extra, so nice because we were traveling for an additional 8 days in Italy. The grounds are beautifully manicured with flowers, and have fig trees, olive trees, a grape vineyard and huge rosemary bushes. So gorgeous. The pool was beautiful, although the chilly weather prevented us from using it. We spent many peaceful mornings sitting outside at the Deruta table in the courtyard, drinking coffee and listening to the Bells of Cortona. We hope to return someday soon."

  • Great wedding venue

    "Our family booked a week at Il Refugio to holiday but also use the venue as our wedding event on the Tuesday. It was magnificent. The house was exactly what we needed, luxury, space, beauty with wonderful indoor and outdoor areas to be together but also get away for a quiet read. The house is extremely well appointed with everything you could need, a magnificent kitchen and terraces with stunning views. The pool area is large and well equipped and although it was a bit cool to swim we spent a few hours lounging around in the sun on the sun beds. I would highly recommend this vacation retreat if you like to experience the Tuscan life at its very best."

  • Tout simplement magique !

    "Nous sommes un groupe de 8 adultes qui avons passé un séjour mémorable d’une semaine à la Casale 36 en septembre dernier (2014). Il est difficile de trouver les mots justes pour exprimer à quel point Casale 36 est parfaite. C’est en faisant la rencontre de Grazia et son frère Gino (ainsi que leur maman) que l’on comprend pourquoi la Casale 36 est si spéciale - ils ont rénové cette demeure familiale en y mettant coeur et âme. Tout est absolument parfait - de bon goût, rénovée et entretenue avec soins. Grazia et Gino sont des hôtes attentionnés et vont s’assurer que leurs invités ne manquent de rien. Bref, quoi de mieux que de commencer un séjour par un accueil chaleureux accompagné d’un buffet aux saveurs locales ou encore, terminer la semaine avec une soirée pizza où Gino se transforme en « pizzaiolo » et, avec Gracia, préparent sous vos yeux de délicieuses pizzas au four à bois. Bref, même si la route pour se rendre à Casale 36 est quelque peu sinueuse (mais avec des vues spectaculaires), un séjour à Casale 36 est tout simplement magique! Un gros MERCI, de notre famille à la vôtre."

  • October under the Tuscan Sun

    "My husband and I toured around Tuscany and spent 5 days in Cortona in this apartment. It was already quite cold in Cortona at this time of the year and we found comfort and warmth in this apartment. The heating was a lifesaver and heated the apartment as quickly as ten minutes after we got home for the night. The apartment was very well furnished and equipped for all of our needs. Our favorite room was the living area - wonderfully decorated due to the owners being friends with a well known artist living in Cortona. The bathroom had a great shower and a bidet and was very clean. The bedroom had a huge closet that we made great use of. The view was wonderful from the apartment and there was free parking right across the street. Mirko and his mother were excellent hosts, so warm and helpful. They even offered us a selection of an array of books that we made great use of, the guide on Cortona especially. The WiFi in the apartment was extremely fast - a huge plus!! We look forward to returning to Cortona, and will definitely book with Mirko and Vanna again."
