  • Wonderful week in Cetona!

    "When I first stood in the doorway of this beautiful house in Cetona, I had to pinch myself. Finally I was actually standing in this amazing place I'd been looking at in pictures for months. Marco's place is absolutely beautiful. The style and design is perfect in every detail, the architectural renovation was carried out splendidly, and you really do have your very own cave at the back of the side sitting room. Marco was so helpful and responsive, from the beginning of my inquiries to the last day when I emailed to ask directions to the nearest gas station for our departure. His daughter met us in Rome to give us the keys and detailed directions, and all of our interactions with both her and Marco have been friendly and helpful. We stayed for a week in Cetona, a wonderful small town with its centuries of history and modern life centered around the main square, the Piazza Garibaldi. We chose this house in part because of the convenience and charm of being able to walk to shops and restaurants, and we especially enjoyed interacting with the kind and friendly people who live there. In a minute we could walk to a wonderful bakery, a deli, a wine shop, a green grocer, other shops, and a larger grocery store up on the main road. We enjoyed delicious meals at the two excellent restaurants just steps from the house, the Ristorante da Nilo and the Osteria del Merlo. Cafe Sport, between the two restaurants, serves up delicious gelato, coffees, and wine by the glass. Cetona is also a great jumping off place to visit the Tuscan hill towns and thermal mineral baths (hot springs). We drove to Siena, Pienza, Montepulciano, and Chianciano, and the Fonteverde spa in San Casciano during our stay. I only wish we'd had more time here, as Umbria is right next door and we never did venture there, nor did we fully explore the small towns scattered around the countryside. We would definitely stay here again, in a heartbeat, and we'd recommend this place to anyone looking to step off the wheel and breathe in the beauty of rural Tuscany for a while. I totally agree with the previous reviewer who stated that you can have expectations as high as you can imagine, and that you will exceed them here. Thanks for everything, Marco, we hope to be your guests again someday! Sonja and Doug"

  • A truly magical place

    "We have recently returned from a fabulous vacation at La Buro and can't wait to return. It was definitely one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had. The home is very well maintained and beautifully appointed. Everything you need to enjoy the Tuscan way of life is offered here and the owner, Elizabeth, went out of her way to ensure we would experience a wonderful vacation. The home has a pleasing, calm atmosphere and is positioned perfectly to explore the surrounding area. Our family of seven truly enjoyed the property and we spent many hours exploring the grounds, going on walks, and swimming in the pool. It was the ideal spot for us to stay in terms of being right in the middle of all the medieval towns we were looking forward to exploring. But the house and property itself held so many wonders that it was often difficult for us to pry ourselves away. The children especially never wanted to leave La Buro and we enjoyed many days just hanging around the property and enjoying the outdoors. We cooked many dinners in the well designed, well appointed kitchen and loved eating them in the outdoors dining area with gorgeous views in the evening. It is such a special place and we all adored it. Elizabeth arranged a fantastic Tuscan cooking class for us at a local farm as well as a dinner in the monastery near by. We also enjoyed a farm tour and cheese making experience (goat and sheep) with lunch overlooking the Val d'Orcia and took a short trip to La Foce which I highly recommend. I feel very fortunate to have spent time at this wonderful villa, it is a vacation we will all remember for a long time to come. Sarah (Ottawa, Canada)"

  • Beautiful Villa in a Perfect Location!

    "We stayed in the Villa Banditello this past July, and it was the perfect base from which to explore the neighbouring hill towns of Montepulciano, Montefollonico, Pienza, Siena, etc. The villa is 5 minutes outside of Montefollonico (great restaurant here called 13 Gobbi, where the owner/chef makes home made fettuccini in a hollowed out peccorino cheese rind, scraping the melted cheese down into the pasta .. yum!). It is situated in its own vineyards and olive groves, and is beautifully appointed, right down to a wood oven (in addition to the regular one). The kitchen was very well equipped, the washing machine worked perfectly, bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious, bright and clean, and the views . . . well they were pretty much "storybook"! Michele personally spoke to us on the phone as we arrived, to be sure that we had all we needed. The housekeeper was there to greet us, and showed us everthing we needed to know. There is lots of room for parking. Furnishings, books and art are plentiful and tasteful. It really is a home away from home. There was even a bottle of the vineyard's own red wine waiting for us on arrival. Thank you Michele and Cristina! We would like to return this summer again in July! We will contact you!"
