This is great family-friendly accommodation. Sample the home grown wine from Dario's small vineyard which was superb.
The house is central to Sienna, Arezzo and Florence and the many hill towns such as Lucignano, Cortona to say but a few. I had the most restful and relaxed time imaginable. I will go back again later in the year with some friends.
We settled in easily at Dario's rental. Upon arrival we toured his wine making cellar and sampled his various wines. The home is beautifully built and our "apartment" was clean, cozy and comfortable. It is possible to walk to Lucignano on the road, but the cars are going fast and the shoulder is not meant for pedestrians. The drive to town takes 5 minutes and we always found free parking.
Close to our rental we could walk to a wonderful bakery full of temptations and just beyond that a bar where we had our morning capuccini. Tourists were scarce and we felt we were living in a typical Italian village.
We usually made our dinners at the rental and ate outside. We shopped at the Coop in Sinalunga where one can find almost everything.
We highly recommend eating at "La Rocca" in Lucignano. Upstairs is a terrace with gorgeous Tuscan views.
I consider Dario a friend after getting to know him over glasses of his own organic wine.
We just returned from 5 days at the most perfect spot. Our daughter is studying in Arezzo and we wanted to stay close enough to her but still be able to enjoy a a more rural environment. We found it!! Dario is a warm, gracious host who welcomed us into his world. Not only was the apartment quiet, welcoming and comfortable but our host shared places to go for amazing meals and suggestions for things to do as we tried to fit two weeks worth of traveling into 5 days. We came in as strangers and left as friends. We will be returning! Thank you, Dario. We had a wonderful holiday.
We spent a week here in December & highly recommend choosing this as your Tuscan escape. Our host, Dario, is a lovely host; generous with his time, his local knowledge...& his wine. He was so helpful during our time with him, giving us some fantastic suggestions of places to go & things to do. Situated in a great location if you want to explore some of the beautiful villages throughout Tuscany & about 5 minutes from the lovely village of Lucignano, the apartment is comfortable, cozy & well-equipped for the perfect stay. We'll be back one day & look forward to enjoying Dario's hospitality once again. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
From our arrival and meeting Dario our stay was a pleasure. We had a tour of the property which included a wine tasting. Great stuff. Dario makes guests welcome and takes an interest in where you are going, what you might like in the area and offers suggestions of routes to take. The flat is well equipped and comfortable, there is a well stocked woodshed available to visitors which complements the central heating.
We have no hesitation in recommending this property to couples looking for a slice of the good life in Tuscany.
