great place to spend a relaxing holidaz

  • 5 of 5

I went to Tuscany for the first time in September 2009 and I am planning already to come back this coming summer.

A friend recommended me the Casale of Santa Croce because I was looking for a nice typical Tuscan house where I could just relax and enjoy the nature, the wineries and the local cuisine.

I was a bit afraid to end up in some area where agriturismo are advertised on every crossing. Not at all, Casale Santa Croce is protected by the forest and at the same time has a wonderful view on the hills. As a matter a fact, the house is located in a reserve so I was able to see many animals. For my soon & daughter that was quite fun to see dear and squirrels in their natural habitat.

The house itself is wonderful, cozy, completely renovated with a charismatic rustic style, the fireplace is always light up! The housekeepers were helpful as we need recommendations for some good restaurant. They indicated us a very nice local restaurant where we had the best fiorentina steak ever! :-)

A Dream Holiday

  • 5 of 5

This place is like something from a storybook. We were 4 adults and 6 children. From the moment we arrived we felt at home. Beautiful rustic decor with everthing you could wish for.

The outdoor area was absolutely perfect offering the children freedom, inducing imaginative games and adventures. What they loved best was the superb wooden barbeque. Although the swimming pool was not heated, the good weather allowed us to enjoy it to the full.

Totally relaxing and exhilerating, enjoying nature, walks, splendid views, tranquility. We found some good restaurants thanks to our attentive housekeeper who gave us helpful hints where to go and places to visit. We do recommend you to have a car at your disposal.

If you have been looking for a magical place to go with your kids on a holiday they will never forget, your search is finally over...and for the parents....total relaxation.

Unforgettable holiday!

  • 5 of 5

I could never imagine that the unpaved and steep path leading into the property could be the beginning of a unique experience.

The property is sourranded by trees and a beautiful view on the Tuscany countryside is the perfect remedy to get rid of the stress and enjoy your holiday.

''Il casale'', how they call it, is very well maintened, clean and equipped like your own place.

The area offers genuine restaurants (typical home made cuisine) at really affordable prices and attractions are very close by. We had a car to move around and we also went for a ride by our bicycles....but i did not enjoy it as much as I imagined. Beware: Tuscany roads are not flat and you need training!

I was there with my family and I really enjoyed the pure vacation. If you need to sleep well, that is definitely the place where you would hear nothing but ''nature sounds''.

The owners were very nice and they were available for any information we needed. The tips we received were really great (not only restaurants, but also shopping at the Prada outlet!)

Though the beaches are not close by (1 hour away by car), it was good for one day trip.

The only thing I would have liked to have is internet and good mobile coverage in the house.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice feedback. Our aim is always to help our renters live the truly tuscany experience. I apreciate though, that better mobile coverage in the house would be a plus. We are trying hard to get a new repeater installed in the area but it will take some time to get approved by the region. In the meantime, we can offer renters, navigation keys, simple to use on your laptop. Thanks again !
