Private villa , pool, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, Infinity Edge private Pool,
- english, italian
What a great location this villa has. Sitting on the terrace having a meal watching the sunset our sitting in the pool looking out over the valley made us feel privileged to be here in Tuscany.
The local town of Castiglion and Cortona Corroborate well worth a visit. Great restaurants, churches and museums to see.
For the more active hire a couple of mountain bikes (We cheated and got ebikes) and explore the numerous trails on the ridges and valleys surrounding the villa. There is a guide book in the local Tourist information office in Castiglion that had some routes. STEELS bike shop in Castiglion are great and will deliver and collect the bikes.
Villa had reverting we how's for and we came back refreshed and enthused a putt returning to Tuscany soon.
A group of friends wanted a peaceful and experience in Tuscany - preferably with the visions conjured up from holiday programes of Tuscan's famous countryside and hill top towns. Finding Castello was therefore a real find. THe views - wonderful, the pool and terraces providing plenty of space to enjoy the views. The main villa (with two bedrooms and two bathrooms) full of detail and thoughtful touches in the kitchen and elsewhere. The studio /annex caused some argument - as we all wanted to enjoy it (A bedroom, separate bathroom, sitting room and kitchenette plus a lovely shaded breakfast table).
Besides the tranquility of the house, pool, terraces, gardens etc - there are all the wonderful hill towns to visit - including a great day out in Florence by train form the local town
Very, very enjoyable
So and so
Compared to the price we paid, we would have liked a little more service than we got. No hot water or heating for 7 days.
Waited 2 days for the laundry key. When we said there wasn't´t any key, we were told that there was...quite rudely.
The owner was very nice, but didn't´t speak english, so we were forced to communicate through the concierge, who was very arrogant, and sometimes even hostile towards us.
Anyway the place was fantastic and the location quite unique..
“Home” for the Holidays
we were looking for a place which we could relax and, use it as “our home” inviting family and friends over the Holiday season. The layout here ( 1 large and 1 small stone house) ideal for us, The larger for us all to gather and enjoy and the smaller house providing an independent private place.
The villa and its little chapel are the result of a long restoration, and it’s easy to see that detail was carefully followed. There remain a few things to do, but nothing to take away the enjoyment.
for the brighter sunny days, the views of the town and landscape always a joy. and the many walks around the place added to the pleasure of staying in a quiet part of tuscany .
Great place for our extended family
The arrangement of a main villa and annex was perfect for us - giving us the feel of a family home with the additional "privacy" for our parents to use the close by annex. Enthusiastic welcome and very helpful guidance to localities including the markets of Camucia Cortona and some good restaurants all added to our enjoyment and enhanced our vacation here.
The villa's views are certainly more than exceptional and, like the villa , the photos do not amply show the beauty of the the villa, its pool and its surrounds. 10/10
From the house the view out on the valley is truly amazing,
We had a wonderful stay with our family at Villa Castello Roccolo. When we arrived, we had a lovely welcome by Terry who made us feel at ease throughout our stay and gave us helpful tips to find our way around Castiglion Fiorentino. The house itself is cozy and lovely, with a rich history and wonderfully renovated by the owner. The amenities in the house were sufficient to enjoy wonderful home-cooked meals which we could eat outside in the shade of the trees. From the house the view out on the valley is truly amazing, including the olive trees, the nearby town on a hill top, beautiful sunsets and lit-up skies filled with stars… stunning really. The town of Castiglion Fiorentino is actually pretty close and offers a very nice selection of restaurants and it is much less touristy than the surrounding towns. There is castle nearby that is currently under renovation and definitely worth a visit. In short, we can definitely recommend a stay at Villa Castello Roccolo because of the house itself, its atmosphere and amenities, and the amazing Tuscan surroundings.
