“The most romantic Tuscany stay”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

This was the first time we have booked an apartments in Tuscany. Though the pictures looked great, we had lowered our expectations before arrival. But the reality was absolutely amazing!!! The location is perfect, on a little hill, out of traffic, but very close to beautiful town Pistoia or the main highway or small villages with stores. Also, it was great starting point for many trips in Tuscany (Florence 40 min, Pisa cca 1 hour, Sienna cca 2 hours).The fattoria itself is a beautiful venue, very well kept, very clean, very romantic. The studios we had were perfectly equiped with small kitchen and table. The swimming pool was awesome, with romantic views on the vineyards and both the city. We have prolong our stay for additional 3 days and will definitely come back and recommend to all our friends. This is a Tuscany dream. The only minus were breakfast, which were rather simple, but for 5 EUR, we didnt need more. Also one important thing - there is no Internet connection, no wifi. So enjoy the rest :).

My recent review would repeat exactly that posted by Jas80 last year.

We too (my wife and I) were looking for a base to tour Tuscany by car and we were delighted by the location and the quality and cleanliness of the accommodation and facility. The staff were at all times extremely helpful and pleasant, both in e-mail information beforehand and after arrival.

A car is essential to get the best benefits of the area but Casalbosco is only 5 minutes drive from the train station in Montale (with plenty of free all day parking nearby ), with regular trains to Florence and Lucca, and with onwards connections to everywhere. Two return tickets to Florence are as cheap as driving and parking, but the car is needed for the less accessible parts of the region, which should not be missed.
Tip - if the platform ticket machine does not work the "Tabbachi" in the main station car park sells all types of tickets.

The pool area was nicely finished and kept very clean at all times. Grounds were immaculate and are tended by gardeners regularly. Views from around the pool were beautiful, making it a lovely place to relax for a day to break up driving and exploring. Alternatively the pool area gets the sun for most the evening, making it great for an evening swim after a hot day. There are two large stone barbecues next to the pool area. Plenty of pizzerias and restaurants nearby, plus pleasant supermarkets (large and small) for own provisions. All really need cars to access.

Cooking facilities may have been better perhaps with the addition of a small oven or grill (there are two electric rings) but this is not really a major issue. All kitchen appliances (good sized sink; drainer board and rack; cooking rings and below counter fridge are cleverly fitted into the cupboard that matches the wardrobes so all are tastefully hidden when not in use. Plenty of new and matching utensils, crockery and glassware provided. At time of writing all website photographs still match reality exactly.

Main road nearby is fairly busy so not ideal for walking in the dark. Excellent holiday all round.

Would go back tomorrow.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 week in July 2011. We were looking for a base to tour around Tuscany in our rented car. This was ideal. 20 min drive from Florence and only 40 mins from Pisa. The rooms were lovely, spacious and clean. Self service of course. Cooking facilities could have been bigger but it did us fine. Pool was gorgeous and kept really clean. Gym facilities near the pool also. Very impressive vineyard walk as well. Nice restaurants only 5 mins by car. Can't remember names. 1 restaurant was at a filling station. Not chic but fabulous food and extremely friendly hosts. Other favourite was at the local 5-a-side soccer campus. Savage pizzas and again service with that Tuscan smile. All in alleluia highly recommend this place.
