Where do I begin? This was our 2nd visit to La Carreccia. We are 2 couples (retirees) who rented both apartments for 3 1/2 weeks. The Martinez family are hospitable and so welcoming. We chose to rent a vehicle from them and took many day trips in Tuscany/Umbria. So many villages and towns to explore and visit. Add wineries, castles and boat tours. We took the train to Florence for the day. Easy, less hassle. Filippo can recommend places depending on your interests. You can also look things up in their travel room. Maps and pamphlets are all there for you to use. Our stay was relaxing and peaceful. Outings during the day usually having lunch out returning home for a happy hour and light dinner on our private terrace.The area is great for walking or just bike riding. You can make use of the beautiful pool and lounge chairs. We also got to meet two lovely ladies who come year after year (15 ) if not more...just another indication of the hospitality of our host family!!

Stayed: April 2015, travelled with friends

We absolutely loved this piece of heaven from the moment we drove in the gate, until the moment we regretfully left for the airport. We were there 9 nights in the Lo Zino suite, which was wonderfully equipped with everything we needed. Having rented a car, we used this as a home base from which to explore Assisi, Castiglion Fiorentino, Castel Montecchio, Camucia, Cortona, Siena, Florence and other places near and far. The market in Camucia (Thursday morning) is really fun to experience, and Filippo took us to a local family winery where we got some really excellent wine. The bicycles were a welcome plus, and there are lots of local roads to explore which had little traffic.
Filippo and his family were so friendly, welcoming and unfailingly helpful. One morning, Lucia gifted us with a big basket of fresh picked tomatoes and basil!
I can't recommend this wonderful place highly enough. The grounds are beyond lovely, with all sorts of fruits, herbs and vegetables growing in abundance. Fresh figs for breakfast one day!
My husband's only negative comment was that he would have liked a fan in the bedroom.
Room advice: Lo Zino was perfect for us, and our friends were in il Tino which was smaller and very lovely. The Il Coltro units have stairs up to the bedrooms and en-suite, and are probably quieter (the neighbor has a dog, suffice to say).
I would come back here in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: All units are lovely, but Il Coltro (although having stairs) may be quieter.

A piece of heaven in Tuscany! Filippo and his family are the best! This place has a wonderful "home" feeling with everything you could possibly want available! The views of the hills and farms are spectacular! I will be returning here!!!

My husband and I spent 5 nights at this delightful villa and if opportunity allows, we will be returning! Filippo picked us up from the train station in Castiglion Fiorentino. On the short ride to the Villa and, during our stay, Filippo shared information about the surrounding area and helped us get our bearings.

The apartment we called "home" during our stay overlooked the fields and Castiglion Fiorentino beyond. We were in one of two apartments that are separate from the owners' home. There is also a swimming pool (unheated but very refreshing after a day sight-seeing) and the grounds are beautifully and lovingly cared for. We were surrounded by lemon, apple, fig, and olive trees, to name a few. In the morning, we were woken, not by the sounds of traffic, but by roosters crowing.

The apartment itself is fully equipped, comfortable and very well-maintained. WI-fi is available although at times, it was more readily accessible by the open window on the main floor than on the second level where the bedroom was.

While the apartment is fully equipped for cooking meals, we decided to go out three times, to a local trattoria a short walk away. Filippo had previously explained that it was not safe to walk the main road into town at night time (although we walked it during the day - 20 minutes - with little worry about safety). Instead, he pointed us to Locanda Di Gege, a local trattoria/pizzeria. We could not have been happier. Staff were obliging and friendly as they attempted to explain the menu to English-speaking tourists. One word of caution, though...in order to get to the trattoria, we walked up an unlit path a distance and then down a lighted paved road. The trip to dinner was slightly easier than the trip back, when the climb up the paved road was more arduous and one requires a flashlight to travel safely down the pathway.

La Carreccia makes an excellent base for travels to other towns/cities, even if one is not driving. The local bus into Castiglion Fiorentino or to Cortona is a short walk to the main road. From town, trains will take you to Florence, Rome Perugia, Orvieto, etc. However, regardless of where you might want to wander during your stay, be sure to spend some time in the old part of Castiglion Fiorentino. While the walk to the top of the town is steep, the views from the piazza are spectacular. Another must, is a visit to Agricola Buccelletti winery. Filippo provided the drive to and from the family-run estate where we enjoyed a tour of the vineyards and wine tasting.

The entire time at La Carreccia was delightful in so many ways and Filippo and his family are the perfect hosts.

We stayed at La Carreccia for one week in June, 2013. It was a wonderful, charming Tuscan Villa. The view from our bedroom window was lovely. The gardens & flowers around the villa are beautiful & we picked lemons from Filippo's lemon trees. Our unit was very comfortable, with all the cooking facilities needed to make our own meals. We ate breakfast & dinner on our small patio!! We used the pool every day after our busy days walking & touring the different small villages, towns & markets in the area!! The location was perfect as we were close to Florence, Sienna, Cortona & other locations in the Tuscan area. Filippo was wonderful & shared lots of info & suggestions!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay & hopefully we can make a return visit!!
