“Time passes too quickly at La Casina”
Reviewed 25 October 2012

We're just back from spending only six nights at La Casina. This was really too short. I would have liked to spend at least two weeks there.

Getting to La Casina will be a challenge for first timers especially if they are city dwellers. The roadway poses not such a big problem but the last mile or two to La Casina is where the trouble may start as driving in the countryside with legal restriction on posting signs is a real challenge. Going there, you will get that feeling of a home-invader as you find yourself driving on unmarked gravel lane behind or though someone's property. If you fail to arrive after nightfall on your first time there or if it rains heavily, I strongly suggest you give the owner a call for assistance. But once you're there, all the travel-related stress should have lifted completely.

The interior of the property was clean and fairly modern with its rustic exterior to blend nicely with the surrounding. The family room was spacious with a working fireplace (we had it on several nights-- be careful there is no surface you can touch without a glove once it's on), comfy sofa and a dinning table although we preferred to dine in the kitchen instead with its long wooden table. I would prefer a gas rather than induction stove for serious, Italian cooking but this was manageable. There's a dishwasher to help you clean up after the massive party that you will probably be having every night (We did!). There was also a covered dinning area outside with BBQ equipment. A short walk down a grassy slope will get you to the pool and a wood-burning pizza oven. We have not tried the last two facilities because it was too cold outside. The bedroom we stayed in were quite spacious and had an equally large ensuite bathroom with a tub and a glass-sided shower stall. The warm hospitality of Adrian, Gill and their girls rounded off our memorable, worry-free stay. I would rate this a definite return. La Casina also makes an excellent base for daytrips the many, little wine-producing Tuscan towns nearby.

We have just left after a fantastic trip to La Casina and could not wait to write a review. This was our second trip to the region and it was for a family reunion and Adrian and Gill made this one to remember. Then things that we really loved about the villa were as follows:
1. Standard of the Villa, the cleanliness of the property and also the fixtures and fittings are of a very high quality, all the mod cons are there. The kitchen is extremely well equipped, and has a massive fridge for storing all your meats, cheese and wine of course.
2. Accommodation, Every room has an ensuite bathroom which is fantastic for families and groups. Also the linens and towels are of a very high standard and make your stay very comfortable.
3. Location, being so close to all the major towns and especially at the bottom of Montepulciano makes life very easy, also very close to a number of great Wineries where we bought a lot of wine to be shipped home.
4. Adrian's cooking, i highly recommend that you get Adrian to cook for you, we did it the day we arrived after a couple of long days in Rome and it was fantastic, especially his Goats Cheese Tart... He did a fantastic job and I highly recommend it!!!!!!

We will definitely be coming back to this property and recommending it to all of our friends when they visit.
