My Fiancee and I stayed here for one night a few weeks ago and were both quite impressed with the location and room. The price was affordable and we felt very relaxed and welcome.
The breakfast was typically Italian with yoghurt, apple cake, salami, cheese, but very good nonetheless.
Overall a great 1 night stay in the heart of Tuscany.

Bravi. Un bell'albergho. Molto romantico.

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Perticuccia" room.

We arrived here after a long day of travelling and we're shown to our room, Martinicca. it was a fantastic size with a great bathroom.

We only had one night here as we were travelling again the following day, which was a real shame as it is situated on the outskirts of Cortona and would be perfect if you are visiting the town. And it looks like they are building a swimming pool on site so it really would be perfect for a few days peace and quiet.

We had dinner in the restaurant and we're served by the son in law of the owners, who was really helpful. Food was fantastic and incredibly reasonable. It's worth making the trip just to sample their wonderful home cooking,

Beds are comfortable and breakfast was fine - a typical Italian breakfast of pastries, cakes, cheese and meats (plus the usual European cereals).

I just wish we could have stayed longer.

Room Tip: All looked good,

We stayed for one night at the new Casale L'Antico Carro (it opened sometime in 2012) whilst touring Umbria and Tuscany during Christmastime. We also pre-booked the Christmas Eve dinner, and Christmas Day lunch. This place is run by two very friendly and polite young gentlemen, and their very nice family, who always seem to have a smile on their face. The building is beautiful and rustic, the two rooms we booked for my family were lovely and clean, and the surroundings are beautiful and central for reaching various Tuscan and Umbrian cities, towns and villages. Only a very short drive to Cortona centre, where we went for mass at the Cathedral on Christmas day morning. The Christmas Eve dinner at Casale Antico Carro (based on so many fish dishes) and Christmas Day lunch (besides so many apetizers we were served tortellini in soup, lasagne, chicken, pork etc) were so good, a real authentic taste of the Tuscan cuisine. Firstly, before Christmas day lunch started being served, there were yummy apetisers to help yourself to on a table close to reception, then came so many countless delicious apetiserers, and different courses at our table, I never felt so full in my life, plus free-flowing wine. After dessert, on Christmas day, they even set a small table with typical Tuscan sweet goodies!!!! I was so sorry that I could not stuff myself into anything else and that we needed to leave and go on our way to a different location!! This family just loves feeding people, you can see it on their faces, from the young gentlemen who served everyone tirelessly, to the cook, I think she is their mother, who came out near us after all the endless dishes were served, to make sure that we enjoyed our meal!!! They worked so hard to make sure that everyone was fully satisfied. Thank you Casale Antico Carro for making our Christmas a memorable one!! Hopefully we will be back one day.

Room Tip: Some rooms are reached by stairs, (ours did), so for the physically challenged I would suggest that...

We stayed there over New Year's and enjoyed a fantastic meal. The people who run the place are very friendly, the rooms are large and clean, great Wi-Fi for those of us who can't disconnect 100%. Minutes away from lovely Cortona, and interesting surroundings to go for an aimless walk.

We enjoyed 3 nights at Casale L'Antico Carro, and it was a perfect place to tour both Cortona and Umbria towns. The rooms were large, clean, and comfortable. Food was FANTASTIC! Distance to Cortona was only a few miles away. All in all...was exactly what we had hoped for!

Room Tip: Great for families too!

This small B&B Agroturismo was the perfect place in Tuscany to spend as much time as you can! We stayed 3 nights in the Timone suite - so clean, comfortable bed and nice linens, lots of windows with different views, and huge bathroom. The shower was great, and the window was nice to open and let in the sun. Free Wi-Fi. The whole property is gorgeous, having been completed in 2012 it is fresh and nice, but retains the old Tuscan charm you came for. Everything is new, and attention to detail is evident - the choice of linens in the restaurant/room, care taken of the property, and the service.
The people here are what make this a truly wonderful choice. Aldo does everything - from checking you in to serving you dinner in the amazing restaurant - and is very helpful, he even drew us a map to the local laundromat! He really loves serving you, and is very professional but also warm and friendly. The patriarch, Mauro, is a pleasure to chat with about his garden and the area.
The restaurant is incredible, fresh Tuscan cuisine. The whole family works in the kitchen. We are foodies and ate here our first night, planning to go into Cortona (5 min drive) for our other two nights. After the first meal was far beyond our expectations, we went back the second night...and the third. We had some of the best dinners in our tour of Italy right at this B&B. Very good prices too. Much of the menu is fresh from the garden, or locally sourced. After dinner, we would stroll quite comfortably around the streets in the area, it felt very safe and the stargazing is excellent.
All in all this was our favorite of four destinations in Italy - the town of Cortona is so cute and great to walk for shopping, eating, and photos. The hillside views, vineyards, and fields of sunflowers are so relaxing to explore.
As we were leaving for our remaining two destinations, we seriously contemplated cancelling the other places to extend our stay here. Aldo, Mauro, and the rest of the family work hard to make this a place to spend a night or a week or longer! We cannot wait to go back, we hear there might be a swimming pool next year!

We had an amazing stay here! It's a very short drive from the town of Cortona, so wouldn't suggest it without a car, but it's well worth it!! What a beautiful place! It's also a restaurant, with truly excellent good, so you don't have to worry about straying too far for a meal unless you want to!! Literally did not have a bad meal during our stay in Tuscany, and we ate here 2 nights! Our room was big and sparkling clean, bathroom was huge and shower was good. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again myself, and highly recommend it to anyone!
