We had a lovely stay at Casale il Cotto
We had a lovely stay at Casale il Cotto. Facilities are superb, plenty of kitchen equipment, wifi, a nice pool and a comfortable veranda.
The garden is beautiful and the pool was at a refreshing 24/26 degrees.
Casale al cotto is an ideal place for peace and tranquility, enjoying the sun, and if you want to explore Tuscany, Florence and some other beautiful cities.
The house is nice and clean, we enjoyed our stay there
The house is nice and clean, we enjoyed our stay there. Only two negatives come to mind. First the location is quite remote, at the end of a long, narrow and windy road. It took ten minutes of careful driving to reach the village.
Since the villa is located deep in a valley it doesn't have much of a view of the Tuscan countryside. On the other hand if you are looking for privacy, quite and seclusion this would be perfect. The grounds and spacious and nicely groomed. We didn't try the pool, the weather was cool and rainy.
The manager, Silvia, is very nice and helpful. She speaks English well.
