  • così perfetta !

    "We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this beautiful isolated farmhouse. It is really a home from home with everything you need from a well appointed kitchen, luxurious spa like bathrooms and individual bedrooms. A selection of CDs, books and DVDs were thoughtfully provided. The gardens, terraces and pool area are stunning, there are lots of toys and games for the kids (and adults) lizards scuttle about and at dusk bats flutter around the walnut trees as you eat on the terrace. It's isolation is both Casa de Selvo's strength and only weakness, with a 15 minute drive to the the nearest village and 30 minutes to Umbertide so buy extra wine and food for a few days and avoid any need to nip to the shops. Five bellissimo stars from The Burtons"

  • Beautyful Tuscan setting

    "A very beautiful place with a wonderful view over the valley. The three cottages are situated far from traffic and offers peace and quiet. The cottages lies close to each other and yet still offers privacy to each family which is very nice. The pool has easy access, it is big and there are several sunbeds/shaded areas to use. The cottage il Sole is cosy and in the real Tuscan style with nice living room and kitchen downstairs (little morning terrace outside with pomegranate tree) and two sleeping rooms upstairs (note that with small children you have to be aware of the stairs, quite steep and no railing). Staying close to Castiglion Fiorentiono, we often visited and enjoyed the cafes and restaurants. There is also a goo public park with playground which our two boys enjoyed visiting. We had a couple of daytrips, one to Pisa to see the Tower and one to Sienna which is a really beautyful city. We also had a couple of visits to the Tratemeno lake to enjoy the Water and cooler breeze. Tuscana gets really hot in July. The owner was very friendly and we had wine and fruit as a welcoming gestur. Also Terry from 'Tuscan Charm' was really service minded, welcoming and helped us with all the questions and needs we had during the holiday. Absolutely a professional experience, will recommend this company to friends and relatives. A beautyful place to enjoy you Tuscan holiday!"

  • Fabulous property, rustic luxury

    "We had a wonderful family in this fabulous house and it would be perfect for a romantic getaway too. The grounds are lovely, with a terrace overlooking an old church and the Cortona plain. It was a great spot to idle the afternoon away with a book or glass or two. The patio is just right for convivial meals. The swimming pool is a decent size, with an olive grove stretching up a slope to one side. The furnishings inside are very stylish and elegant - and there's a big fireplace too if you are here in winter. You could happily spend all day here without leaving but the old center of Corona is just a short walk away too. We found a great choice of restaurants and cafes, a few interesting churches, and music in the square at night."

  • “Spectacular views of Tuscan countryside from terrific apartment!”

    "We stayed 5 nights in this lovely apartment and it was the highlight of our 20 day trip through Italy. The apartment has everything one needs - it is clean, nicely decorated and really charming! We were greeted with a bottle of wine waiting for us in the kitchen after our hostess Vanna so kindly picked us up at the train station in Camucia. The bedroom has a wonderfully comfortable bed and storage closet, the kitchen fully equipped and a comfortable sofa bed to relax on. There is a cute terrace also available with table/2 chairs -accessible a few steps from the apartment door. Vanna offered a cooking class which we took advantage of and it was a wonderful evening of conversation, fun, food and wine! The one thing I can say that meant so much was having a hostess close by for any questions or needs we had --Vanna was just one door down and so helpful. We fully recommend "Under the Tuscan Sun" and we are already planning our return trip!"
