I fell in love with the place even before visiting, just looking at the surroundings and the villa itself. The reality is even more spectacular - the location, the casa itself, the pool, the food, and, of course, the hosts - Mara, Fabrizzio, and Roberto. They all made our stay simply fantastic! The original plan was to use the kitchen to cook for ourselves, but after the first dinner that lasted, like the following ones, for 2.5 hours, we changed our minds and for five nights in a row enjoyed the five courses (!) in a warm atmosphere, even if we didn't speak Italian. That was our only regret, but, fortunately, among guests there were quite a few English speaking travelers. But even with the minimum of Italian and English, we loved it all! I returned home with a stylish haircut Mara gave me!
My husband and I stayed in Europe for 17 days, visiting Prague, Cesky Krumlov, Austria, other parts of Italy, and yet, Casa Casentino beat it all! Simply amazing! If most places in Tuscany are like this, I'm truly lost... Hope to return someday!More
