“The Apartment was great!”
Reviewed 29 May 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We enjoyed our stay. The location is central which makes it an easy jumping off point for day trips to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Volterra, and many other cities.

“We loved it!”
Reviewed 5 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017

A beautiful apartment set in fabulous grounds, ideally situated to explore Tuscany. Our first visit to Italy and we could not have picked a better location, ideal for exploring Tuscany in general with Volterra and San Gimignano nearby and Siena, Florence and Lucca further afield. The apartment was great to return too with fantastic views and beautiful pool to cool down in.
What really sets this apartment apart though is the wonderful hospitality of Carlo and his family. Attentive without intruding on your holiday they were perfect hosts and we cannot wait to return.
We cannot recommend this apartment enough!

“Third visit, Even Better”
Reviewed 5 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

I've already reviewed the wonderful Casa Titta from our last two visits in 2015 and 2016, but just as we come to the last couple of days here again, I thought it worth emphasising how wonderful this place is from the moment you step into this really large 3 bedroom apartment, which is spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated and then you look out across the pool and beyond to the Tuscan hills laid out before you, you know you're in a special place and that your stay here is going to be great. The apartment has everything you need for a comfortable stay, including a washing machine and I know many of you may think I'm crazy, but when you're on the road beforehand, there is nothing better than being able to wash all your clothes particularly when it's been as hot as it has been this year - 43 degrees to day - need I say more! All the bedrooms are really huge with lots of space to spread out, really comfortable beds and a beautiful shower/bathroom (with one of the best views over the Tuscan Hills ever).

Casa Titta is located in the lovely small village of Castel of San Gimignano just a stone's throw from San Gimignano and Volterra, with the beautiful old town of Colle Val D'Elsa also just down the road. You are beautifully placed to visit Siena (35 min drive), Florence ( 1-hour), Lucca (home of Puccini - 1half hours), Pienza, Montelcino, Tuscan beaches Livorno, Castiglione Della Pescaia (1 hour;45 mins), Montepulciano (1:30hr) just to name a few of the many, many wonderful places you can enjoy. And then at the end of the day when your feet are tired from walking around these wonderful hilltop towns soaking in the culture and Gelato's you come back to Casa Titta just in time to enjoy the dying moments of the day by the pool ( for me this is just best time to relax) and then visit one of the many wonderful restaurants, from Tre Archi (just 5 mins walk) to Locanda Del Borgo (10 min drive) to Caffe Casalano (Casole D'Elsa 30 mins drive) that are all conveniently placed close by serving great Tuscan food (or you don't have to move an inch and just stay at the apartment and cook-in). And then you can come back to Casa Titta to enjoy a late evening drink in the lovely gardens before finishing for the day. But the best bit about Casa Titta (and it's sister apartments, Casa Verbena, and Casa Gelsomino) is the wonderful family who own and look after these great properties from the fantastic Carlo and his beautiful wife Emanuela, to Carlo's gorgeous Mum, Anna and Dad, Renzo, who welcome you with open arms, can't do enough to make your stay a memorable one, no request is too small, they are so friendly and kind but always respect your privacy.

So if you're looking for a holiday rental that lives up to the hype than Casa Titta (or one of the sister properties) is for you - I guarantee you won't be disappointed and I bet, like us, you will return time and time again - and yes, we'll be back next year!

“Great apartment in a beautiful area”
Reviewed 24 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

The apartment has a beautiful garden with great pool area and a fantastic view. It is located in a small village which has a good restaurant a shop and a bar. Only a short drive away you find places like San Gimignano, Volterra, Colle di Val d'Elsa and Casole d'Elsa, well worth a visit. Siena is also only 20-30 minutes away. We also went to the beach south of Cecina one day and that was less than 1 hour drive. We could not be happier with the location.
The apartment itself is also very nice and has everything we needed for our stay. The owners are really friendly and made us feel very welcome.
My wife and I and the kids (6 & 9) really enjoyed the 10 days we spent there an would love to come back next time we visit this area.

“Better than ever”

Having stayed in Carlo and Emanuela's two other apartments at Casina di Manu we thought we knew the standard to expect from their new apartment......but it was even better than anticipated. The views from the apartment are stunning, the facilities are first class and the welcome, as always, was second to none. As usual, it felt like coming home as Carlo, Emanuela, his parents and their children all went out of their way to make us comfortable - nothing is too much trouble. This is the most peaceful and relaxing place we know.

“Great apartment, great views, great location, great people!”

We have stayed with Carlo and Emanuela before but this is our first time in this new apartment. The apartment is a great size. Large bedrooms and wonderful views out over the pool and valleys to the south. There are a lot of steps up to the apartment so it may not suit those with disabilities or the older amoung us.
The apartment was spotless and well presented. There is only a small couch in the kitchen/dining/sitting area but we utilised a chair from one of the bedrooms so it was fine. It came with all the items you could need including a dishwasher and washing machine.
The pool and outside area are great. It was so hot that we spent the mornings at the poolside and then relaxed in the afternoon after enjoying an Italian inspired lunch of bread, salads and excellent salami and cheese with lots of fruit!
The best thing however was our hosts. They again made us feel so welcome and Carlos parents were there always with a smile and a wave. Simply charming.
This apartment, as all the apartments Carlo has, is well worth a visit. The accommodation is excellent, the location ideal for exploring this beautiful part of Tuscany and the people remind me of those I remember when holidaying in Italy as a child. Try it; you'll love it!

I'm writing my review before the end of our holiday in Italy, because I think this is such a special place and I want to share it with you so if you're thinking of a holiday in Tuscany and haven't booked your accommodated yet, then please seriously consider this. Second year to visit CSG and staying in Carlo & Emauela's new property Casa Titta - Similar in style to Casa Verbena where we stayed last year, and again oh so tastefully and comfortably furnished, and absolutely spotlessly clean. 3 bedrooms (2 doubles, very comfortable beds & a single ) a living/dining/open plan kitchen great place for the family and friends to come together. Again Carlo's lovely mum Anna was on hand to welcome us and his dad Renzo - two of the loveliest, kindest people you will meet. Casa Titta is located on the other side of the house to Casa Verbena and has the most spectacular views over the pool and beyond that for miles over the hills of Tuscany - I can't quite describe just how wonderful it is except to say I'm happy to sit for hours on our balcony just watching the changing light at various times during the day and evening. CSG is a small village on the way to San Gimignano and is close to so many wonderful Tuscan towns and villages - Volterra, Siena, Radicondoli, Monteriggioni, further afield to Florence, Pistoia, Lucca. it has the obligatory shop that sells everything, two local bars and one of the best restaurants we've come across in our many years visiting Tuscany - Tre Archi (but I'll review that separately). There are also a number of other restaurants a short drive away that we have yet to try, but another gorgeous Tuscan town, Casole D'Elsa is just 20 away with an abundance of good restaurants. So this is the perfect place to explore every facet of Tuscany and come back to a beautiful apartment, relax by the pool surrounded by the Tuscan hills and just enjoy the peace and quiet. The Malandrini family will make you feel that this is a home away from home. Carlo is always on hand to sort out any problem, even supplying a toaster for me, the Coeliac, so I can toast my bread, and extra fans when needed - but they are very circumspect and don't invade your privacy. So if you're thinking of Tuscany and you want to be central to visit all those wonderful places, but yet have somewhere that's private and where you can relax at the end of a long day walking around Tuscan towns, then this is the place to be. I can't recommend it highly enough.... come and see for yourself!
