“Beautiful house, spectacular vistas, really good food!”
Reviewed 15 August 2018 for a stay in June 2018

We had the good fortune to spend three weeks at Casivieri in June 2018.

First impressions of both the house and landscape are spectacular. Situated on the slopes of a valley, the panorama genuinely does take your breath away. Rolling, wooded hills in all directions, the castle at Monte as a persistent landmark, it is almost as if the scene was constructed to appeal.

The house is very old, substantial, and it feels like a privilege to be one of the many who must have passed through. The wisteria clad terrace was where we spent most of our time. Family meals, and games late into the night; that’s what the holiday was all about and Casivieri provided the catalyst for the experience.

The garden is very well maintained and beautifully laid out. I didn’t read about it on the website, but there are plenty of herbs in the garden. An entire hedge of rosemary, bay trees, sage, oregano and plenty of fresh mint (required for mojito time).

The kitchen was unusually well equipped. The stove-top has 8 gas burners, which is very helpful for a large group with a multitude of cooking needs and waking times. One thing that impressed me, the knives were sharp. Not always a given at a rental.

With two living rooms, one on the first and the other on the second floor, there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out. The bedrooms had lots of storage space. There are two bedrooms on the second floor and three on the third. There is no bathroom on the third floor, but with two bathrooms on the second floor and one of the first, we were fine.

The pool is very well kept, large, and a refreshing temperature. The new sunbeds around it were much appreciated. We used the tennis court most days, but a word to the wise, it is fast and older knees need some getting used to it.

Though we didn’t have any little children with us, it is clear that they would be well catered for with a tree house and sand pit, together with toys in the bench on the terrace.

I would describe the property as secluded (rather than remote). I timed it, and it is a 15 minute drive to Monterchi, where the local grocery store has pretty much most of what you’ll need. In 20 minutes you can drive to the grocery store in Citta, and absolutely everything you might want will be found there (charcoal for the BBQ, medicines for the infirm etc.).

The property is well situated, with Florence, Assissi and Perugia all very reasonable daytrips. The train station at Arrezzo is about a 40 minute drive and from there you can catch trains down to Rome or up to Florence.

We very much enjoyed our catered meal at the villa, by Narayana (and her son), which was a great alternative to eating out. We didn’t tell her, but it probably fed us for a couple of extra days.

There are two hammocks slightly up the hill from the house with a spectacular view of the valley. This is the place to lie back, unwind and listen to the only sound that is persistent; the wind in the trees.

Hopefully you will enjoy this place as much as we did!
